neither the US forces and MKO itself nor Iraqis can decide for the future of MKO members in Iraq. Neither can they determine the place and the way of their living. It’s their right to decide for themselves and choose their own way freely
MKO claims that 2800000 Iraqis including Arabs, Turkmen, Shiites and Sunnis, Christians and other religious minorities, have signed a petition indicating that Mojahedin-e Khalq of Iran has done nothing during past two decades except practicing political sacrifice and legal resistance for the freedom of Iran! Regarding the large number of signatories and gathering signatures from 2800000 Iraqis at the current critical situation of this country, providing such a list was not possible even for the Iraqi officials. So, rather than relying on a 2800000-signature list, it was better for MKO to announce that:
In a poll in Iraq, 2800000 Iraqis took part and asked for the staying of Mojahedin-e Khalq in Iraq. They also asked Iraqi officials to respect the legal position of this organization and the rights of its members as political refugees in Iraq. They also said that MKO’s rights for possessing its properties should be observed!
So, rather than gathering 2800000 signatures from Iraqis it was better if Red Cross was allowed to visit those 3-4 thousand people imprisoned in Camp Ashraf in Iraq and ask them if they still want to stay in Rajavi’s cult or they’re counting down to escape from the hell made by Massoud Rajavi and Maryam Qajar Azdanlou?
Bottom of the line is that neither the US forces and MKO itself nor Iraqis can decide for the future of MKO members in Iraq. Neither can they determine the place and the way of their living. It’s their right to decide for themselves and choose their own way freely.
