But the real agenda is not removal of the MKO from the lists, they know too well this is impossible. Removal from the terror lists requires the MKO to denounce terrorism, and take a stance on issues like Saddam Hussein and the September 11 tragedy. Instead, the United Kingdom and other European countries are now actively investigating the National Council of Resistance of Iran for inclusion in their lists.
Welcome to the December edition of Survivors' Report. As regular readers will have noticed, we have moved our Personal Experiences column inside and added a new column on the back page. Where Personal Experiences allows individuals to describe what has happened to them in the Mojahedin, the Open Secrets series aims to open up the internal world of the Mojahedin as a whole. Each month we will lift the lid on various aspects of the Mojahedin members' lifestyle as it is lived now, and describe how such conditions came about. The Open Secrets series is presented as a springboard to further research and investigation, rather than a definitive description of the MKO ideology. But, from this introduction to the inner world of the MKO, we hope you will agree with the former members of the organization who contribute to this publication, that it is of vital importance to reach behind the pseudo 'democratic, pluralist and secular' mask which the Rajavis have created to gloss over their cult activities. As each aspect of the cult is described, it will become clear that there is a glaring contradiction between the actual beliefs of the MKO and the image they present to potential political supporters in the west. It should also be clear that serious human rights abuses are ongoing in the Mojahedin cult, for not just a few, but for all members. Fortunately, the governments of those western countries where support is being courted, are in no doubt about the facts surrounding the Mojahedin. The past month has seen intense activity by the Mojahedin, particularly in the United Kingdom and Europe where meetings and demonstrations have been staged regularly, though with a dwindling number of supporters each time. Ostensibly these efforts have been directed toward having the MKO removed from European terrorist lists. But the MKO's problems are much deeper than this. The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom headed by Lord Corbett of Castle Vale, has been created in the UK in the same way that the Iran Policy Committee was invented in the USA. The Committee's task is to lobby support for the Mojahedin in parliament. Its recent activities include announcements that: "More than half of the Members of Parliament and 22 Peers have called for the removal of the terrorist proscription of the PMOI [MKO]", and that: "In an unprecedented move in British legal history, 1,300 lawyers called Tuesday on Prime Minister Tony Blair’s government to de-list Iran’s main opposition group, the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), from the list of terrorist organisations." Though, as usual, no supporting documents have been supplied for such claims. But the real agenda is not removal of the MKO from the lists, they know too well this is impossible. Removal from the terror lists requires the MKO to denounce terrorism, and take a stance on issues like Saddam Hussein and the September 11 tragedy. Instead, the United Kingdom and other European countries are now actively investigating the National Council of Resistance of Iran for inclusion in their lists. This could be why the Committee for Iran Freedom is already acting as mouthpiece for the Mojahedin in Britain. In the USA, the NCRI has already been listed as an alias for the MKO. As a result, Alireza Jafarzadeh, the erstwhile MKO representative in the USA, who then became the erstwhile NCRI representative, is now introduced as an 'independent Iran analyst'. As Hadi Shams Haeri says to Mojahedin supporters, 'why not join with an opposition group which makes you proud rather than have to appear in disguise the whole time. We wait with interest to see if Dowlat Nowrouzi, Shahin Gobadi and Hossein Abedini take up similar 'consultancy' roles in the near future. As the article by Massoud Khodabandeh 'Let's talk about regime change' reveals, the IPC has been exposed in the US, and key members are being sued for libel after they unthinkingly regurgitated the MKO's lies about former MKO members. We hope that politicians in Europe who are supporting this terrorist group will weigh up whether the recompense – whatever that may be – is worth the long term damage to their reputations. As for the Mojahedin, surely now that both the European Parliament and the UK have reiterated their stance toward the MKO – yes, it is a terrorist organisation - we hope that the poor slaves can take a well earned rest while the Rajavis take time to ponder their futures.
