Professor Rabbi Daniel M. Zucker, David Horowitz, and the Pol Pot of Iran Communist Terrorists
“I make no apologies for my present position. My values have not changed, but my sense of what supports them and makes them possible has. It was what I thought was the humanity of the Marxist idea that made me what I was; it is the inhumanity of what I have seen to be the Marxist reality that has made me what I am.” –David Horowitz, Left Illusions: An Intellectual Odyssey
With some exceptions, David Horowtiz’s FrontPage Magazine continues to promote the Iranian Communist MEK (MKO, PMOI, NCRI, Rajavi Cult, or Pol Pot of Iran) terrorists. On August 1, 2007, FrontPage Magazine published “Hat in Hand” by Professor Rabbi Daniel M. Zucker, a supporter of the Rajavi Cult, who concluded after promoting a terrorist organization on the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations: “With a track record of twenty-eight years of lies, deceit, obfuscation and terror, the Iranian regime’s modus operandi should be clear to all with decent vision. For those still failing to see it, my glasses are available for the asking.”
Even the New York Times, with its long history of promoting communists, reported:
“This past winter in Iran, when such a popular outburst among students and others was still just a dream, if you mentioned the Mujahedeen, those who knew and remembered the group laughed at the notion of it spearheading a democracy movement. Instead, they said, the Rajavis, given the chance, would have been the Pol Pot of Iran. The Pentagon has seen the fatal flaw of hitching itself to volatile groups like the Islamists who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan and, more recently, the Iraqi exile groups who had no popular base at home. It seems dangerously myopic that the U.S. is even considering resurrecting the Rajavis and their army of Stepford wives.”
–Elizabeth Rubin, “The Cult of Rajavi”, New York Times Magazine, July 13, 2003
FrontPage Magazine has posted some articles critical of the Rajavi Cult, including Michael Rubin’s”Monsters of the Left: The Mujahedin al-Khalq, January 13, 2006.
After FrontPage Magazine added the MEK to its monsters of the left list, FrontPage Magazine has been promoting the MEK with articles (not comments) by MEK supporters, such as: Ali Safavi’s “Missing the Mark on Iran”, FrontPage Magazine, January 27, 2006.
