if the comments of Abdulmahdi have caused hatred among Iraqis, there's no doubt that MKO's records have created deeper hatred toward this group.
Mohammed Mohaddessin, spokesperson for the band of Rajavi, has responded to Adel Abdulmahdi's comments Al-Hayat newspaper; Abdulmahdi had said that Iraqi government is going to expel the MKO from Iraq according to the international regulations. Mohaddessin said:
"In 2003, When this man (Abdulmahdi) talked to Mullah's television as a member of Economical Commission of Iraqi Interim Government, he said that Iraq should pay hundreds of millions of dollars to Iran as compensations; at that time, his comments caused deep hatred of Iraqi people."
Abdulmahdi's comments were based on the following facts:
- Introduction of Saddam as an aggressor by the international community and the UN,
- Condemnation of Iraq to pay compensation to Iran, according to resolution 598
- Condemnation of Iraq to pay compensation to victims of Kuwait occupation by Saddam Hussein
So, if such comments, according to MKO, have caused hatred among Iraqis then there's no doubt that anti-Iranian stances of Mojahedin during the war, playing the role of fifth column for Saddam, giving military intelligence to Iraq to bomb Iranian cities, and killing or imprisoning Iranian soldiers have created deeper hatred towards this terrorist group.
Iranian Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli called for tougher measures against the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group by the European Union...
