Mojahedin do whatever they can to stay in Iraq. Last week they held a ceremony in Camp Ashraf and bribed some Iraqis.
Mojahedin give gifts and rewards to the officials of Diali province, hold ceremonies in villages around camp Ashraf, give free medical services in a clinic in Ashraf camp (which was used previously exclusively by MKO militants) fund some institutions and give large sums of money to some Iraqi newspapers to reflect their news. All of these are done to win the attraction of Iraqi people to stay in Iraq. Meanwhile, many Iraqis protested on Thursday to the presence of this terrorist group. On Friday, Mojahedin invited a number of villagers to camp Ashraf and took a propagandistic report of it. Al-Vatan wrote: "A militant Iranian exile group, which settled here during the rule of Saddam Hussein, faces an uncertain future, following attempts to force them out of the new Iraq." The People's Mujahedeen, which has carried out armed attacks to try to destabilize Tehran's Islamist government, counts about 4,000 members at its camp here, 115 kilometers (71 miles) northeast of Baghdad. Thousands of people gathered in support of the Islamic-Marxist group, which settled here during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, this week as it commemorated the first anniversary of its leader's arrest in a Paris raid on June 17, 2003. But some Iraqi Shiite Muslim leaders who are close to Iran's leadership are agitating to get rid of the group, considered a terrorist organisation by the United States and European Union. Iraq's former Governing Council, dissolved on June 1 to make way for the caretaker government that is to take power at the end of the month, announced in late 2003 that it would expel the group but the plan was never put into practice. Abdallah Hassan, governor of Diyala province, said he was "sure that the new government will support them"."I hope it will give them the same rights as Iraqis," he said, pointing out that the group opened a clinic offering free medical treatment in the province." Meanwhile, according to the statement of Mojahedin, Al-Jabori, governor of Diali province has claimed in his speeches that "we are humanely and morally responsible toward Mojahedin and we are united in the path toward democracy and freedom!!" Intissar Mohammed, who runs a Baghdad orphanage, said she visited the camp to support Iranian women, adding that the Mujahedeen had helped fund her institution!! MKO, in its statement about the ceremony, admitted that some Iraqi people asked others not to take part in MKO's ceremony. Mojahedin say Iraqis are mercenaries of Iran!!!
