The Islamic Republic of Iran has been one of the victims of the acts of terrorism during the last 25 years. Thus, I offer my congratulations to you and other esteemed staff of the daily (Jordan Times) on the courageous, transparent stance taken by it as for the need for an all-out confrontation with terrorism, and wish you further success in revealing the violent nature of terrorist organisations. One of the most horrible terrorist organisations which has unjustly named itself Mujahedeen is the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq Organisation. After resorting to armed confrontation with the Iranian government and people, killing a president, a prime minister as well as some of the ministers, deputies and innocent civilians, the members of this organisation fled the country for fear of being caught and brought to justice. During the Saddam Hussein's imposed war on Iran, leading to the occupation of a vast part of its territory, they acted as Saddam Hussein's natural allies. Moreover, they helped him suppress, in 1991, an Iraqi popular uprising aimed at obtaining freedom, and made sacrifices for the Iraqi despotic regime to remain in power. More importantly, in the course of the war, they acted as the Fifth Column and spied for Saddam, the whole documents of which are available and are being followed up by relevant authorities. The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq Organisation, National Resistance Council and the army affiliated to it, which is stationed in Iraqi military bases, has been condemned and put, due to its acts of terrorism, on the list of terrorist groups by various countries. The group's active involvement in supporting Saddam's regime failed to bear fruit and the Baathist regime's support for this terrorist organisation failed to prevent the collapse of the organisation as well. Using a general amnesty granted by Iranian authorities, many of the members of the organisation have entered, through Iraq-Iran borders, the Islamic Republic of Iran and have come back to their families waiting for them. That the culture of combating terrorism should be bolstered is a fair meticulous point referred to in the article "The terrorism debate (The Jordan Times, May 15). Otherwise, all will, on a daily basis, be affected directly or indirectly by the serious consequences of acts of terrorism. Nosratollah Tajik The Jordan Times May 26, 2003
