Ali al-Shahri, a well-known pro-Saddam extremist Sunni figure, gave a speech and promised victory to MKO members and prayed for leaders (Rajavi-Saddam). Then, all of the participants showed their faith to the Iraqi dictator by shouting slogans in his favor.
Following the decision of French judiciary to lift some of restrictions on Maryam Rajavi and a number of other members of terrorist MKO, and before Iraqi government's decision to restrict Rajavi's gang in Iraq, leaders of MKO (who had not faced the current situation in Iraq until that time) held a party in Camp Ashraf and invited their comrades.
As usual, they asked their Baathist coordinators to help them for a party in Ashraf and reminded that all their friends should be invited to the party, which was held for a big victory.
In this party, a number of pro-Saddam tribal leaders praised Maryam Rajavi and women members of MKO and then some of MKO officials (Hussein Roboobi, Ismael Mortezayee, Morteza Ismaelian, and Hussein Abrishamchi) said the victory was the beginning of freedom in Iraq and described it as "the victory of Saddam followers".
Meanwhile, Ali al-Shahri, a well-known pro-Saddam extremist Sunni figure, gave a speech and promised victory to MKO members and prayed for leaders (Rajavi-Saddam). Then, all of the participants showed their faith to the Iraqi dictator by shouting slogans in his favor.
At this moment, MKO leaders who feared US forces may hear these slogans tried to calm down the participants.
There's no doubt that Camp Ashraf has now become the focus of Saddam followers and those Baathist and tribesmen who felt broken by the fall of Saddam consider this camp as a place for hope.
