The new diplomatic conflict between Iran and Britain over the capture of 15 navy personnel by the Iranian border guards has prompted the UN Security Council and the European Union to interfere to resolve the crisis.
The Iranians claim that the incident occurred in Iranian waters, while the British government insists that its troops were in Iraqi water and have never crossed Iranian territorial borders.
While diplomatic efforts, together with wider western pressure, are being used to resolve the crisis, the British Government’s position was discredited by allowing an interview with the Mojahedin Khalq Terrorist organisation (Rajavi cult) representative, Hussein Abedini (Mojahedin Khalq Organisation or National Council of Resistance of Iran) in London .
Hossein Abedini, a member of the Mojahedin’s alias the National Council of Resistance, in an interview with Sky News TV on March 29, in response to the suggested fact that the British navy personnel “have admitted trespassing into Iranian territorial waters”, says:
Well, this is what the mullahs say, but all the indications and all information proves that the British personnel, navy personnel were abducted at gunpoint and they have been taken to Tehran forcibly and they are being interrogated. So, we have information that this was a carefully concocted plan by the Revolutionary Guards and these plans always carry the seal of the highest political and military authority of the Iranian regime”
The claim of having information from Iran (where the group is hated for their cooperation with Saddam during Iran-Iraq war) is not new. ABC News reported the terrorist group’s representative in Washington as claiming:
"The Iranian regime is secretly engaged in the organization and training of large Iraqi terrorist networks in Iran to heighten insecurity and instability and force the coalition forces to leave Iraq, which would in turn pave the way for the establishment of an Islamic Republic in Iraq," Jafarzadeh said.
The same report adds:
"There was no independent confirmation of the latest information. The U.S. Mission to the United Nations had no immediate comment.
"His statement today is a public announcement that this group has been the source of allegations which officials are making about Iranian intervention in Iraq ," said Mohammad Mir Ali Mohammadi, a spokesman for ‘s U.N. Mission"."
The group which remains on the terrorism lists of the US (1997), UK (2000), European Union (2002) and Canada(2005), has been used to discredit any information which has come out against the Iranian government.
In 1994 the US Department of State gave a report about the Mojahedin Khalq Organization, which is permanently headed by self-appointed cult leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi. It gave the most up-to-date and researched report in 40 pages describing the nature of the Mojahedin; their internal relations as well as their involvement in killing Kurds, Iraqis, Iranians as well as Americans. The report revealed their total dependency on Saddam Hussein.
In May 2005, Human Rights Watch (HRW) published a condemning report on the abuse of human rights by leaders of the Mojahedin against their own people in . Human Rights Watch also brought to light the way they have been using psychological methods to keep hold of their members against their will.
It is widely believed that the Iranian Government has benefited the most from the freedom given to this terrorist organization in Washington and London . The Iranian Regime by refusing to accept any opposition except the Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi cult) has long convinced the people of Iran that the alternative to the Islamic regime would be an Islamic Cult (Rajavi cult) which has been working for the enemy during the 8 years war with Iraq and which is now under the control of Neo-conservatives and Israeli right wingers who are pushing for a military confrontation between the west and Iran. Iran has also frequently used the claim that the terrorist organization is ‘the only source of western intelligence from Iran and thereby discredits and rejects all these accusations by default.
After the fall of Saddam and the disintegration of the Mojahedin’s military base in Iraq (disintegration of Saddam’s private army in 2003), it is clear that the presence of the cult in western capitals has now shifted the problem of Mojahedin Terrorism from Iran and Iraq (where they were working as an annoyance to the Iranians and Iraqis) into the heart of Europe and America.
The group, which orchestrated mass suicide and self-immolations in June 2003 in the capitals of western countries, has now openly threatened the west with more suicide attacks if they refuse to take them off the lists of Terrorist entities and allow them to continue their activities as a destructive cult.
