Pointing to the fact that the MKO hopes it could rearm its forces again, he added: "MKO officials held several meetings to draw a bright picture of their future for members, but we realized that it was false. I believe that more than 50 percent of members have no motive to stay in the Camp."
"Since Ahmadinejad has been elected as president, we asked ourselves why the MKO was actively conduction propaganda against him although Ahmadinejad himself didn't pay attention to the group. I was convinced that Ahmadinejad is not compromising and that he's a man of action," says Siamak Hatami, former member of Mojahedin-e khalq who's recently defected. In an interview with Mehr News, Hatami said: "MKO officials claimed that there are numerous internal differences inside the Iranian regime and that it would be toppled very soon." Pointing to the fact that the MKO hopes it could rearm its forces again, he added: "MKO officials held several meetings to draw a bright picture of their future for members, but we realized that it was false. I believe that more than 50 percent of members have no motive to stay in the Camp." On the issue of news and information and that how members receive them, he said: "news came to us only through MKO's own bulletins and TV channel (Simay-e Moghavemat). Listening to radio was forbidden, except for new recruits." "They even banned friendship inside the organization and this process has been intensified so that many of members now suffer from nervous disorders. But the MKO leaders hold meetings to brainwash the members in order not to think about leaving the group. Members' dilemma now is weather to leave or stay." Siamak Hatami went on to say that: "The last time I saw Massoud Rajavi was in a meeting in June 2002, and he said that Iranian government would be toppled until the June of 2005! He tried to appear as a respected person but I believe that he was the first person who disappeared." Referring to the claims of independence made by MKO leaders, Hatami declared: "Rajavi said the group was independent and had no ties to the former Iraqi government but after leaving Camp Ashraf we watched tapes showing Rajavi while receiving from Baathists. In the tapes, Rajavi said to Baathists that his blood was mixed with those of Iraqi officials!" "We recognized who was the enemy. We saw what the US did to Iraq and we understand that protecting Iranian borders is very difficult task, which is done well by Iranian military forces." Hatami, who served in the MKO for 15 years, pointed to MKO's wide-range propaganda against Ahmadinejad and added: "Despite all efforts made against Ahmadinejad by MKO, I was attracted to the comments of Iranian president because he is not compromising and he's a man of action." "The MKO will undoubtedly prevent its members from hearing our words but I will do my best in Iran to help other members leave that organization."
