The question is that why the MEK consider it a strategy to get the support of Americans, despite always being rejected by the US? MEK is not able to move without this support and illustrate lack of support as a choking situation for the group! The more important question is that why the US doesn't support this group officially in spite of enmity with Iran?
"The US considers MEK a terrorist organization. This organization has committed horrible crimes, including the assassination of a number of US citizens. We have nothing to do with the MEK," said US Secretary of State Condy Rice before starting her travel to the Middle East; she is from a party that represents the most extremist views on Iran since 27 years ago. Earlier this month also, Rice thumbed down the requests of Raymond Tanter- MEK's relentless supporter and active lobbyist for this group in the US- to remove the group from terror list. She insisted that the MEK is a terrorist organization. We can remember how she had replied to the people who dreamed of using the MEK after the ouster of Saddam Hussein: "Using terrorists, NO, NO, NO". In addition, MEK's repeated appeals in different US courts during past 10 years have always been futile due to undeniable evidences on group's terrorist activities. MEK's non-stop lobby activities have always failed… The question is that why the MEK consider it a strategy to get the support of Americans, despite always being rejected by the US? MEK is not able to move without this support and illustrate lack of support as a choking situation for the group! The more important question is that why the US doesn't support this group officially in spite of enmity with Iran? The answer to both questions lies in this fact that "the MEK has no popular support in Iran but it's hated by majority of Iranians. This group has no power to influence Iran's political issues". Although the group chants converse questions in this regard, group's urgent need to get out of terrorist list (and all-out efforts by the group to achieve this goal) proves this fact. On the other hand, the US is fully aware of this fact otherwise it would employ this group if it knew the group was useful for its purposes. Now that the US is against this group, and unlike Europeans is not influenced by the accusation of being dealing with Iran, the group and its supporters won't be able to do anything even if they're removed from terrorist lists; any one who supports this group knows that he should protect them (like what Saddam did) so that they (MKO) can advance its ideological revolution.
