Mark Dankof's Latest Observations on the MeK (Part 1)

Mark Dankof's America
The Iran-based Habilian Foundation renews its conversation with American populist Right commentator Mark Dankof on the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/PMOI/MKO), the latest developments surrounding it, and the implications for American foreign policy as tensions between the United States and Iran increase because of the Zionist State of Israel and the flexed political muscles of the domestic Jewish Lobby in an American Presidential election year, as evidenced by the upcoming American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conclave in Washington.

Mark Dankof was the Constitution Party's candidate for the U. S. Senate in Delaware in 2000. He is now teamed up with radio broadcaster Mark Glenn on The Ugly Truth. Their most recent broadcast dealt with the doctrine of "Eretz Yisrael" ["Greater Israel"] and the threat this ideology presents to peace in the Middle East, Palestine, Central Asia, and globally. Mr. Dankof's most recent appearance for Iran's Press TV dealt with the Bradley Manning/Wikileaks controversy.

Habilian Foundation: The hue and cry of the MKO is that the conditions at Camp Liberty in Iraq are dire and inhumane, and that Iraqi forces are a threat to the wellbeing of the MKO inhabitants, even though the United Nations has confirmed that Liberty meets international standards. What do you think of all of this? Is the MEK going to resist further attempts at relocation? What will Iraq's reaction to continued resistance be?

Mark Dankof: The propaganda campaign being waged by the MKO over their status in Iraq is being aided and abetted by Israel's Lobby in the United States, as is made clear by reading Ron Kampeas' piece for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and the Jerusalem Post entitled, "Pro-Israel Voices Want MKO off Terrorist List." I have some advice for both Iraq and Iran.

I believe all 3,400 MKO members should be returned to Tehran. Those determined to have been directly involved in crimes should face a public tribunal for their massively expansive list of violent acts undertaken in that country since 1965. The witnesses in the tribunal would include a rather impressive list of Westerners victimized by the MEK, including Constance Wilson Andresen, the ex-wife of Professor Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University who heads up the MEK's chief front organization in the United States, the Iran Policy Committee.

The world needs to hear Mrs. Tanter's story, the stories of the American family members whose loved ones were assassinated by the MEK during the days of Pahlavi Iran, the role of the MEK in killing dozens of members of the IRI government in Iran in the early 1980s by bomb blasts, the utilization of the MEK by Saddam Hussein against Iran during the Iran-Iraq War from 1980-1988, the role of the MEK in carrying out the murder of Kurds at Mr. Hussein's directive, and the particulars of the murders of 17,000 Iranians by this Marxist-Leninist cult.

The horrific criminal record of this organization, when exposed by open public tribunal, will simply underscore the moral bankruptcy of the Israeli government presently in league with these people, and the connivance of Israel's agents in the United States government with these murderers.

Habilian Foundation: What do you think of barring Miryam Rajavi [co-leader of the MEK with husband Masoud Rajavi] from entrance into the UK?

Mark Dankof: She should be barred. She should also be expelled by France, along with her husband, and sent back to Tehran to stand trial along with the other MEK expatriates currently in Iraq. Ed Blanche's piece in June of 2009 for The Middle East on the MEK discusses the Rajavis.
