The most recent account on MKO-Israeli connections was published by Gareth Porter at IPS. He reported that "Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman based his 2006 warrant for the arrest of top Iranian officials in the bombing of a Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires in 1994 on the claims of representatives of the armed Iranian opposition Mujahedin E Khalq."

The Mujahedin Khalq Organization and its propaganda arm, National Council of Resistance resorting to all means to convince their narrow-minded audience that "moderation in Iran is a mirage".

 

As a matter of fact the audience for the MKO mostly includes neo-conservative warmongers especially American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that has recently pushed a bill to impose more severe sanctions against Iran's oil exports. AIPAC actually follows Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu who calls the Iran's newly elected President Hassan Rouhani a "wolf in sheep's clothing". And MKO is completely in line with its western masters in their animosity against the Iranian nation.

 

Less than a month after the election of Dr. Hassan Rouhani as the Iranian president the MKO propaganda claimed evidence of what he called a hidden nuclear site under mountains near Tehran. The news was nothing except some satellite photos that did not attract much attention. The images did not appear to constitute hard evidence to support the assertion that it was a planned nuclear facility, according to Reuters.[1]

 

The group also claimed that the recently elected president Hassan Ruhani, a former nuclear negotiator, had a "key role "in the program on several occasions, reported the AFP.[2]

 

The MKO's so-called revelations on the Iranian nuclear program go back to 2002, when they published information on Natanz Uranium facility. Their report was soon come out to be leaked to them by Israeli Intelligence sources. In 2004, the American prominent journalist Seymour Hersh reported that IAEA official had told him that the information on the Iranian nuclear site had come from Israeli Intelligence, Mossad.[3]

 

The long time cooperation between the MKO and Israel is not restricted to spying operations. The mutual advantages they grant each other also include the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists. Following the assassination of Mustafa Ahmadi Roshan Richard Silverstein cited from his "own confidential Israeli source" who confirmed that "the murder was the work of the Mossad and MEK - he had previously asserted that Israel was utilizing the MKO operatives for the killing of other Iranian scientists Majid Shahriari and Massoud Ali Mohammadi. [4]

 

Also, Richard Engel and Robert Winderm of NBC Television quoted US officials that the attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists are being carried out by an Iranian dissident group that is financed, trained and armed by Israel's secret service."[5]

 

The most recent account on MKO-Israeli connections - meanwhile the oldest link between them - was published by Gareth Porter, the investigative journalist at IPS (Inter Press Service). Porter reported last week that "Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman based his 2006 warrant for the arrest of top Iranian officials in the bombing of a Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires in 1994 on the claims of representatives of the armed Iranian opposition Mujahedin E Khalq (MEK)."[6]

 

Based on Porter's investigations, "the document which is available in English for the first time shows that Nisman's only sources to accuse Iranian officials of Argentine Israeli Mutual Association bombing were members of the MKO". He calls Nisman's 900-page arrest warrant a "rambling"," repetitious" report that cites statement of four members of the terrorist National Council of resistance (NCR).

 

While Nisman describes MKO agents' testimonies as "completely truthful", Porter dismisses MKO's claims as traditionally false. "The record of MEK officials over the years, however has been of putting out one communiqué after another that contained information about alleged covert Iranian work on nuclear, chemical and biological weapons", states Porter," nearly all of which turned out to be false when they were investigated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)."

 

Denouncing Nisman as a pro-Israel figure who "has long been treated in pro-Israel, anti-Iran political circles as the authoritative source on the AMIA bombing case and the broader subject of Iran and terrorism" Porter concludes that he is indeed "playing a political role on behalf of certain powerful interests rather than uncovering the facts."[7]

 

The above mentioned facts - that are probably a few of numerous secret ties between the MKO and Israel - demonstrate that mutual interests make mutual services. The ugly truth is that the Zionist - Mujahedin nasty alliance in spying and murdering would be called terrorism only if the targeted victims were western citizens.
