It's surprising that so far, no one of new Iraqi governments has talked about punishing the criminals of Mojahedin-e Khalq, who were directly involved in killing hundreds of Iraqi civilians in 1991.
Saut al-Iraqi/November 11, 2006 Mojahedin-e Khalq organization was established in Iran when Shah was in power. During that time, the group conducted a number of bombings and killed Iranians and even American citizens. After the revolution, it continued the killings and sabotage operations so that its lead had to flee to France. However, most of the supporters and members of the group chose Iraq as their safe shelter when the ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was in power. Baathist regime provided the group with training camps, light and heavy weapons, tanks, and …. Iraqi army and the Republican Guard trained MKO members, the number of whom increased to 3000. MKO members acted as Special Forces for Saddam security services. During the uprising of Sha'banieh, after Kuwait had been freed from occupation of Saddam in 1991, teams of terrorist MKO started killing civilian Iraqis in northern, central and southern Iraq. With the assistance of Republican Guard and after killing a lot of Kurds and Shiites and others in Iraq, the MKO could suppress the uprising. Following the fall of dictatorial regime in 2003, coalition forces surrounded the MKO and forced them to give up their arms but allowed them to stay in their camp. Several MKO members in Iraq left the country to get to a European nation but many others remained in MKO camps. Some others started serving remnants of Baath party and were actually welcomed by Baathists who considered them as the guests of Saddam. It's surprising that so far, no one of new Iraqi governments has talked about punishing the criminals of Mojahedin-e Khalq, who were directly involved in killing hundreds of Iraqi civilians in 1991. We ask Excellencies Dr. Jalal Talabani and Mr. Nuri al-Maliki, as well as the head of the parliament and all Iraqi officials, to dismantle the camp of Mojahedin-e Khalq in Iraq and transfer them to a third country. When the constitution clearly bans any activity against Islamic and Arabic countries, Iraq and even coalition forces will benefit from expulsion of the MKO. The presence of MKO in Iraq is a clear mistake, planned by Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz.
