the most precious and rare commodity that Iranians can possess today is an open mind, something sadly lacking in the Mojahedin and its supporters.
Welcome to the sixth edition of Survivors’Report.We have had some positive feedback from readers and some criticisms. All of which is welcome, and we have tried to incorporate suggestions and to correct our mistakes. Some of the contact we had was clearly from the Mojahedin and we all reflected that the most precious and rare commodity that Iranians can possess today is an open mind, something sadly lacking in the Mojahedin and its supporters. Following last week’s comment that the MKO’s emblem was self-explanatory we have in fact been asked to explain it. So, what better way than to include in this edition their own words from their own publication in English. Our lead story shows that the Mojahedin’s basic belief in violence is as strong as ever as news emerges of harassment and plans to eliminate opponents even in the streets of Europe. Mette Tegnander from Norway writes as a citizen affected by the threat of terrorism and questions by what definition a terrorist entity is not regarded as dangerous. A new book by Alain Chevalerias might provide answers. ‘Burned Alive in the name of Marx and Mohammad’ is the result of over a year’s research into the Mojahedin and what motivates its activities. Inspired by the self-immolations orchestrated by the Rajavi’s following the French police raid on the MKO headquarters in Paris last year, the book examines terrorism as a way to wage war in a time and in places of peace. Safa Haeri is a well-known Iranian journalist who needs no introduction after a forty year career reporting on Iranian and Middle East and world politics. His report from the book launch as chief correspondent for the Iran Press Services is included in this edition. The concept of good terrorist, bad terrorist is surely motivated by political and not practical reasons. Sometimes it is easy to take a one sided view or to ignore much of the evidence concerning such a terrorist group. When a member of parliament speaks out in support of this terrorist organisation, it is natural that many will raise their voices to remind him of the facts surrounding this group. The letter from Maryam Khoshnevis in Sweden encapsulates the arguments on both sides. We hope this and similar dialogue will continue.
