some ignorant western politicians believe that the presence of MKO in the international community, giving them license to hold meetings and demonstrations and playing with cover names like “NCRI” can create pressure on Iran. But this is not true; now, the MKO has become a foreign pressure group, which disrupts the social and political order of these countries so that they gather European citizens against European officials.
One of the main goals for organizing demonstration in front of EU headquarters and contacting European parliamentarians is to form a pressure group in order to push Europeans to change their policy towards Iran and convince them to pave the way for direct confrontation, a policy followed by some extremist warmongers in Bush administration.
After the Islamic revolution in Iran, European countries, like the US, have refused to accept Iranians basic rights. Trying to take advantage of the situation, they have established economical and political ties while choosing a critical dialogue. This has been sometimes a successful policy so that the U.S. is officially asking Iran to get back to negotiations table with Europeans and these talks have become US’s accepted policy.
Recent events, particularly after the statement of IAEA, convinced the MKO that they could influence Europe’s policy and get their names off the list through lobby efforts. In this regard we saw that Maryam Rajavi asked Europeans desperately to release MKO’s neck and let them breathe freely. European countries, especially France, Germany and England, tested different policies in their engagement with Iran, meanwhile testing the terrorist group of Mojahedin.
The EU put the MKO on the list in 2001, four years after the US acted against this group. Supporting the MKO continued during 80s and 90s until Europe concluded that the claims and slogans of this group could not come true. This conclusion was based on 20 years of experience.
British MP’s direct answer to the lobby of this group (and refusing to support this terrorist organization), EU’s request to resume talks with Iran, French parliament’s regret for neglecting this group for sometime, and Germany’s agenda for expelling the members of this terrorist organization thwarted all MKO efforts and pushed them back to their starting point. Now, they’re at the point of revenging on European governments and the way of revenging by the MKO can be predicted regarding the facilities provided for them by these very governments.
But some ignorant western politicians believe that the presence of MKO in the international community, giving them license to hold meetings and demonstrations and playing with cover names like “NCRI” can create pressure on Iran. But this is not true; now, the MKO has become a foreign pressure group, which disrupts the social and political order of these countries so that they gather European citizens against European officials.
Although the Europeans always refuse (according to their 20-year experience) to support the MKO, what they have ignored is that the MKO will gradually emerge as the most violent opponent of their policies. In this regard, the violent tone and speech of the MKO towards these countries- similar to declaring a war- should be focused on.
Maryam Rajavi’s speech in MKO demonstration in Brussels shows well that the leaders of the group have decided to confront European states; they say that their current problems are not the outcomes of cooperating with Saddam or proving their slogans but that these problems rise from the policies of European countries!
Since there are evidences on MKO’s covert activities against European countries, it can be concluded that the MKO has become a major threat against the national security of these states.
