On January 15, 2003, a full-page advertisement appeared in the New York Times (page A19): 150 Members of U.S. Congress Declare Support for the People’s Mojahedin (PMOI), Call for an End to Iran’s Terrorist Regime. This advertisement contained the names of only 6 of the signers of the Iran Statement: Democrats Bob Filner (California), Sheila Jackson-Lee (Texas), Edolphus Towns (New York); Republicans Lincoln Diaz-Balart (Florida), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Florida), Tom Tancredo (Colorado).
The MEK (MKO, PMOI, NCRI, Rajavi Cult, Pol Pot of Iran) is on the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations. The MEK has murdered American military officers, Rockwell International employees, and large numbers of Iranians and of Iraqis. The MEK has committed a terrorist act in New York City.
In addition to contributions from Iranian individuals who support this communist cult, it is important to research the political action committee (PAC) contributions to these members of Congress.
The July 2007 issue of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (pages 19 – 24) contains lists of Pro-Israel and American-American PAC contributions. http://www.wrmea.com <http://www.wrmea.com/>
