‘I rest my case m’lord… ‘ (No.2)

The case of State Department report on Mojahedin Khalq Organisation  Open letter to the Judges of the Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission (POAC)For the Attention Of the judges of the Proscribed Organizations Appeal Commission (POAC) who have recently asked for the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO, MEK or PMOI) to be removed from the Government’s list of Proscribed Terrorist Organization, an order which the British government rejected and is appealing against. Dear Judges, The newly reviewed report from the State Department in 2007, upgrading the position of Mojahedin Khalq Organization from a "Terrorist Group" to a "Terrorist Cult" is hardly in line with its claim to have rejected violence since 2001". It claims that right now (year 2007), "…MEK leadership and members across the world maintain the capacity and will to commit terrorist acts in Europe, the Middle East, the United States, Canada, and beyond…" The report reads: http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/crt/2006/82738.htm "… The MEK advocates the violent overthrow of the Iranian regime and was responsible for the assassination of several U.S. military personnel and civilians in the 1970’s. MEK leadership and members across the world maintain the capacity and will to commit terrorist acts in Europe, the Middle East, the United State, Canada, and beyond…" "… In addition to its terrorist credentials, the MEK has also displayed cult-like characteristics. Upon entry into the group, new members are indoctrinated in MEK ideology and revisionist Iranian history. Members are also required to undertake a vow of "eternal divorce" and participate in weekly "ideological cleansings." Additionally, children are reportedly separated from parents at a young age. MEK leader Maryam Rajavi has established a "cult of personality." She claims to emulate the Prophet Muhammad and is viewed by members as the "Iranian President in exile…"." "…In 2003, French authorities arrested 160 MEK members at operational bases they believed the MEK was using to coordinate financing and planning for terrorist attacks. Upon the arrest of MEK leader Maryam Rajavi, MEK members took to Paris’ streets and engaged in self-immolation. French authorities eventually released Rajavi. Although currently in hiding, Rajavi has made appearances via video-satellite to"motivate" MEK-sponsored conferences across the globe. According to evidence which became available after the fall of Saddam Hussein, the MEK received millions of dollars in Oil-for-Food program subsidies from Saddam Hussein from 1999 through 2003, which supported planning and executing future terrorist attacks…" http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/crt/2006/82738.htm The US State Department report (presumably more valid for you than the claims brought in by Mr. Mohammed Mohaddessin and/or Mrs. Maryam Rajavi cult leaders of MKO in the absence of fugitive cult leader Massoud Rajavi, who are currently under investigation for terrorism related charges in France) clearly indicates the use of millions of dollars of "Oil-for_Food" program subsidies by Mojahedin Khalq and Saddam Hussein to "plan and execute terrorist attacks" up to "year 2003" when they were disarmed and no longer capable of carrying out acts of terror. The report (last updated 2007) clearly emphasizes that" …MEK leadership and members across the world maintain the capacity and will to commit terrorist acts in Europe, the Middle East, the United State, Canada, and beyond…" In addition, the report of course continues describing "Mojahedin Khalq Organization" by pointing out: – The assassination of US military and civilian personnel in Iran during 1970s, – Stressing the ability and the will of MKO members and leadership to conduct terrorist operations across the world, – Introducing the MKO as one of the most violent political groups, established during 60s, – Emphasizing the fact that MKO was disliked by Iranians, following the Islamic Revolution, – Underlining the fact that for more than 3 decades, MKO used its bases in Iraq and Europe to conduct terror attacks against Iran, – Expansion of financial base, military skills and leaders’ activities in Europe. – Showing cult-like characteristics, in addition to terrorist ones, – Ideological pressure on members and offering them distorted history of Iran, – Stressing the existence of compulsory divorces, cleansing sessions and separation of kids from their parents, – Establishing cult-of-personality around Rajavi. The report continues talking about the "Activities" of Mojahedin Khalq: – Confessing that despite US efforts, MKO members and leaders have never been taken to court for their role in illegal activities, – MKO has been supported by reprehensible regimes, like that of Saddam Hussein. – Stressing that MKO conducted terrorist operations from its bases in France for 5 years, – Citing reports that showed Maryam Rajavi encouraged members to ‘’crush Kurds under the tanks", – That 7 Iranians had been arrested by FBI for transferring 400000 dollars to the MKO for buying weapons, – Voluntarily surrender to coalition, after the ouster of Saddam, and submitting heavy weaponries, – Arrest of 160 MKO members, including Maryam Rajavi, in France for using its bases in France for planning and financing terrorist operations, – Self-immolations by MKO members, following the detention of Maryam Rajavi, – Maryam Rajav’s going to hiding, and using video-satellite to motivate members, – Discovering documents that prove MKO received the money of oil-for-food program and used the money for terrorist attacks, – Citing documents that prove MKO-Saddam ties: lists, a film showing Saddam when he gives a suitcase of money to MKO’s known leaders, and a footage of MKO members being trained by Iraqi army. ———- Below you can consider the stand of US towards terrorist Organizations including MKO (Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization) and its front Organizations during the past ten years: http://www.state.gov/www/global/terrorism/1996Report/1996index.html http://www.state.gov/www/global/terrorism/1997Report/1997index.html http://www.state.gov/www/global/terrorism/1998Report/1998index.html http://www.state.gov/www/global/terrorism/1999report/1999index.html http://www.state.gov/www/global/terrorism/fto_1999.html    http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/crt/2000
