Although the brutal substance of the MKO have been described several times in various reports - including RAND report 2009, HRW 2005 - and once they were financially and militarily sponsored by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, the US officials gave credit to the group by delisting it.

It doesn't matter whether we believe that the MKO has renounced violence (although we don't believe it at all); the US administration doesn't believe it, at least for the time being. Recent acts by the US administration have somewhat dismantled the mask that the government actually cares about the Iranian people. Once upon a time the US was at least pretending that it was caring for people of Iran.

The removal of the MKO cult from the list clearly indicates Washington's increasing animosity against the Iranians. Although the brutal substance of the MKO have been described several times in various reports - including RAND report 2009, HRW 2005 - and once they were financially and militarily sponsored by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, the US officials gave credit to the group by delisting it. Undeniably, the MKO is highly despised by the majority of the Iranian people. Thus, it is very disturbing for them to observe the US supporting a group that has the blood of a large number - at least 12 thousands victims, according to Habilian Website - of their country fellow men in its hands.

 

The Vancouver Sun journalist, Jonathan Manthrope suggests, "it seems unlikely that the Obama administration would fall for the same kind of blarney from the somewhat sinister husband and wife team of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi ,who, if several US government reports are to be believed, run MEK[the MKO] as a personality cult complete with brainwashing, brutal internal discipline, and the indoctrination of children."

 

Glenn Greenwald, the American prominent journalist and lawyer in an interview with Iranian journalist Kourish Ziabari told that the MKO is still engaged in violence."There are credible reports that they are the ones who are working with Israelis and behind the assassination of civilian scientists" he said. "And because this group has paid so many influential politicians in the United States and also because this group now carried out terrorist operations on behalf of Israel and the United States in promotion of the interests of Israel and the United States."[4]
