All under investigation are the ‘Israel-Firsters' belonging to the Republican, Democratic and Tea parties. The list includes former Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell (Jewish) of Pennsylvania and currently MSNBC contributor, Democratic Gov. Howard Dean (Jewish) of Vermont; former Republican Homeland Security Advisor to George W. Bush and currently CNN's resident terror expert, Frances Townsend (Jewish),... .
Why Bolton's former employer, George W. Bush, included Saddam Hussein's support for terrorists like MEK in his propaganda justifying the invasion of Iraq in 2003?
Giving asylum to the individuals, who have been the source of terrorism and always have been proud of that, is inconsistent with the definition of asylum and of course the UNHCR or other institutions and countries do not have the right to grant asylum for them.
Would you guys (officials in department of state) please take a look on the Persian Social Media sites where the MEKs are active. Reviewing such data out of Facebook and Balatarin and reading the MEKs comments where they still proudly talk about their killings and bombings show an obvious desire to continue with their past.
As a matter of fact poor judgment is not only by the side of the group advocates but also is the MKO itself on wrong way... The DOS officials told reporters: "the MKO may have over interpreted the court's ruling and they are "quite plainly, wrong" if they think that the Secretary Clinton is ruled by the court to delist them."
The MEK writers neglected to mention the fact that a background of years of forced labor, ordered by the cult leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi, truly explains the tragic deaths of such victims.
Hersh revealed that supporting Rigi, MKO and PJAK was only a single part of United States' anti-Iranian agenda which was initiated during the Bush administration.
MKO escapes interview or open debate with other media, opposition or anybody that aims to challenge the organization and question its legitimacy. That is because any interview or debate raises another problem frequently encountered in considering its legitimacy.
"United States has adopted a wrong and dangerous way by supporting Mujahedin-e Khalq" says Habilian Foundation Secretary-General.
The letter, sent last week by forty-four Senators, calls for President Obama to abandon any further diplomatic efforts with Iran unless stringent preconditions are immediately met. While many assumed that the prominent American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobby was behind the letter, MEK-affiliates are now taking some of the public credit.
The United States, Israel and Britain have already "poisoned the waters" prior to the upcoming talks between Iran and the P5+1 in Baghdad After all the fingerprints of the Israeli Mossad are all over these assassinations of these Iranian nuclear scientists, utilizing the [Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization] MEK as their proxy in these killings.
Once Hussein's Iraq became the main regional enemy, his support for the MEK was suddenly turned into part of the indictment against him. Once Hussein was overthrown, not only was the MEK no longer to be considered a terrorist group, but in some circles it was seen as a valuable ally in opposing the Iranian government.
Indeed, the fact of continued progress is more remarkable than the difficulties. Patience and compromise have been required, and will still be required, as the last convoys needed to close Camp Ashraf are organized.
Together, nearly 2000 residents of Ashraf have moved to Camp Hurriya, which is well over half the total.
Denying the charge of "material support" to a terrorist group, Rendell says, "The only thing we've done is spoken out on behalf of the MeK, a U.S. designated terrorist group. And you certainly can't in any way encumber free speech in America..."
Like Ahmed Chalabi of the Iraqi National Congress (INC) we have the Mujahideen-e-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group to excite our warmongers to justify a covert and overt war with Iran.
We fight terrorism abroad in the name of freedom, yet we train terrorists on our own soil. The irony of this occurring during the Bush Administration, which stripped citizens of basic civil liberties with the Patriot Act, is unexpected, but not surprising.
