Following the brouhaha of new political interpretation after the election of president Ahmadinejad in Iran, the Mojahedin tried to jump on the bandwagon of concern for the jailed dissident Akbar Ganji. They were forced to back off because of a huge outcry against them in Persian speaking opposition circles. Of course we should not forget that, prior to his hunger strike, the MKO had already accused Ganji of being an agent of the Intelligence Services of Iran.
Following the brouhaha of new political interpretation after the election of president Ahmadinejad in Iran, the Mojahedin tried to jump on the bandwagon of concern for the jailed dissident Akbar Ganji. They were forced to back off because of a huge outcry against them in Persian speaking opposition circles. Of course we should not forget that, prior to his hunger strike, the MKO had already accused Ganji of being an agent of the Intelligence Services of Iran. Since the MKO had also been exposed trying to falsify information about Ahmadinejad using emotive photographs from the US embassy seizure in Tehran in 1979, they switched their attempts to get somebody to take notice of them by seizing on the renewed nuclear negotiations between Iran and the EU3. But it seems no one has heard them or responded to them. No one is prepared any longer to use this broken and degenerate tool. Another propaganda ploy which went badly wrong for the MKO was its attempt to gain some credibility by having its supporters in the House of Lords hold a promotional meeting to resurrect its failing agenda. On July 7th unsuspecting parliamentarians meeting to discuss the issue of Iran after the elections were exposed to terrorist leader Maryam Rajavi talking via satellite from Paris about her plans for violence and chaos for the Iranian people, while immediately outside, other terrorists were killing people in the streets of London. The incident is now subject to police investigation. Many Iranian opposition groups have commented over the past month on the irrelevance of the MKO in Iranian politics. Prominent opposition personality, Mohammad Borghei from Washington was interviewed by Roshana Association in which he dismissed the MKO as a part of Iranian opposition politics. Also Faraj Sarkoohi, a well known Frankfurt based Iranian opposition writer, said that the disintegration of the Mojahedin could be traced directly to the role of its selfappointed leader Massoud Rajavi. It is Rajavi, says Sarkoohi, who led his organization into political suicide through his alliance with Saddam Hussein and his autocratic running of the cult. After Iraqi President Jaafari visited Iran with several ministers from the new Iraqi government, several newspapers and officials in Iraq began to voice their impatience with the continued presence of the MKO in their country and urged the US to do more to dismantle the remains of the military cult. At the same time they urged the prosecution of MKO leaders for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed inside Iraq. Meanwhile another attempt to create a smokescreen of credibility in the west was exposed. The Mojahedin started up a website called Iran-Focus and set about a campaign of disinformation But of course Maryam Rajavi is cursed, like Lady Macbeth, to have her hands permanently etched in blood for all to see. Her bloody fingerprints were easily detected in the website. Her lack of scruple was also exposed by the misappropriation of the name of Iran Focus, which along with Iran Energy Focus belong to the highly respected monthly newsletters of the British firm, Menas Associates (www.menas.co.uk) which have been in publication for many years and which, it must be stressed, have never had any association whatsoever with the MKO.
