Iran news : Some recent reports suggest that the Canadian government has decided to grant asylum to some members of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), a group which is on the terrorist list of several countries. These reports, if true, indicate that Ottawa has adopted a double-standard policy toward terrorism at a time when the international community is using much time and energy to combat the scourge of terrorism. Iranian officials from the intelligence minister to the president have repeatedly stated that Tehran is prepared to grant amnesty to and guarantee the safety of MKO members who have not committed any serious crimes against the Iranian people, but they have also advised other countries not to grant asylum to MKO members. It would be illogical and hypocritical for Canada to harbor terrorists while claiming to be part of the campaign against terrorism. However, since no official announcement has been made, Ottawa still has time to reverse its decision. Iran has officially announced that only MKO members whose hands are stained with blood will be prosecuted, and the rest, the vast majority by far, who have been deceived by the terrorist leaders and are mostly repentant, are free return to their homeland and their families. Canada and any other country which decides to give asylum to MKO members would not only expose their country to insecurity but would also damage their relations with Iran. Iranians have not and will never forget the crimes that MKO leaders committed against the Iranian nation and are aware that they would continue such actions, given the opportunity. Iranians have bitter memories of the alliance the MKO made with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, which was a megadeath war. They also have bitter memories about the bombs that the MKO planted in cities, which resulted in many civilian deaths and orphaned many children. Canadian officials surely are aware of the fact that the MKO participated in Saddam?s brutal suppression of Iraqi Kurds and Shias during the 1991 uprising, which left at least 200,000 and perhaps as many as 400,000 Iraqi Kurds and Shias dead. Clearly, there is irrefutable evidence that this terrorist group committed war crimes against the Iraqi nation. In addition, the MKO actually has no clear ideology but has degenerated into a cult of personality of MKO leaders Masoud and Maryam Rajavi. Some former MKO members verified this several months ago in an interview that was published by several newspapers and news agencies in which they said that the Rajavis would not tolerate the least criticism. According to other reports, the Rajavis and other MKO leaders manipulated and deceived young and inexperienced people through the use of psychological control techniques meant to induce dependence and loyalty such as separating them from friends, family, and familiar surroundings and subjecting them to heavy indoctrination. Canada should reconsider its decision. Granting asylum to members of a terrorist group which has oppressed people on the orders of a war criminal like Saddam Hussein would be a grave mistake.
