On Thursday 30 August 2007, the office of the National Council of Resistance (another name for the Mojahedin Khalq organisation or Rajavi cult) in Germany organised a ‘Press Conference’ in Berlin. The reporters, who had been privately invited, left the salon soon after they discovered they had been lied to and that there was no news whatsoever presented in the conference. One reporter later said: "we soon found that we had been invited to a propaganda show by the Mojahedin Khalq to help their campaign of revenge against their critics among human rights activists". The bulk of the audience and reporters left the conference raising their disgust about the way they had been brought there by deception.
The so-called press conference was managed by Mrs Massoumeh Boloorchi who introduced herself as the ‘Representative of the National Council of Resistance in Germany’ but who maintains her position as a leading member of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation (a proscribed terrorist organisation in the USA, UK, Canada and the EU). She tried with desperation to calm the angry reporters who had been brought there by deception.
Three days after the press conference only one German newspaper mentioned the event in passing in an article about Iran.
‘Sister Fereshteh’, (Mrs Boloorchi, who is a member of the Mojahedin’s all-women Leadership Council personally selected by Rajavi) has a reputation within the cult for being a clumsy person. It seems that this disastrous press conference and the overt ridicule they received from the media and journalists could be the last nail in her coffin and we will soon witness her losing her position in the Leadership Council. Of course, we believe that the problem for Rajavi and the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation does not lie in the hands of this woman and they really should search deeper.
The disastrous result of this latest press conference, which died even before starting, shows that the efforts by the cult over the last four years to be removed from western terrorist lists without rejecting terror and violence has not and will not fool people in those countries.
The leaders of the Rajavi cult, as they have stressed over and over in their internal meetings, are now going back to what they have been trained for by Saddam’s Republican guards, and that is physical assassination and physical terror. It is now clear that the cult leaders have changed their recent tactics and have chosen to resort to open violence and terror in European countries and, as they have always instructed, this starts with the human rights activists, critics and ex-members who are blamed for the failure of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation to find a new benefactor after the fall of Saddam Hussein.
One should not forget that the cult leaders, by referring to the 2003 self-burnings by cult members which resulted in two deaths and several disabled, have on many occasions emphasised that those who are capable of burning themselves on instant instruction, could kill anyone at anytime and anyplace when they receive this instruction.
Aawa Association would like to bring to the attention of the authorities in Germany the great danger which threatens the survivors of this cult in European countries.
