Iraqis have never supports an organization like the MEK that took part in massacring people in north and south. The only group in Iraq that supports MEK is Baath party and its remnants.
An interview with Abdulsattar Majid, member of Political Office of Iraq Kurdistan's Jamaat Al-Islamia
Habilian: What's the opinion of Jamaat Al-Islamia about the MEK?
Abdulsattar: Mojahedin Al-Khalq is a terrorist and mercenary group. This organization was for a long time the mercenary of Baath party and was involved in criminal and terrorist acts against Iraqis, particularly Iraqi Kurds. During the uprising of 1991, along with Baathist forces, they killed Iraqi people. In addition, this organization has acted against the Islamic Republic and this is what we don't accept because we observe freedom and democracy for all religions and races.
Habilian: The leaders of this group claim that Iraqis support their presence in Iraq. Is that true?
Abdulsattar: Iraqis have never supports an organization like the MEK that took part in massacring people in north and south. The only group in Iraq that supports MEK is Baath party and its remnants.
Habilian: How do you see the future for this group?
Abdulsattar: I believe that the MEK can't stay in Iraq and the only thing that has allowed the group to remain in Iraq to date is the presence of US forces, which is itself a sign of double standards in US policies on fighting terrorism. They are going to use this organization as a pressure tool against Iran.
Habilian: What's the view of Iraqis on this group?
Abdulsattar: Kurds don’t stand their presence in Kurdistan and Iraq and if you look carefully you'd see that this group has had no presence in Iraq.
Habilian: As you said, this group has committed crimes against Kurds. Now, can the victims go and complaint against the group? Are the conditions suitable?
Abdulsatar: Iraq judiciary, like other countries, is independent and anyone can go to the court and file a complaint; however, I believe that the complaints won't be considered until Iraq is occupied by US and Israeli forces. You know that Kurdistan and all parts of Iraq under the supervision of Iraqis.
