MKO Arrest Warrants a Test of US Policy in Iraq

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraqi officials have issued warrants for arresting three members of an anti-Iranian terrorist group called the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), and the court order is viewed by observers as to be testing the United States’ honesty in restoring calm and security in Iraq.  The Iraqi criminal court issued warrants for the arrest of Mozhgan Parsayee,Arrest Warrant for the MKO members Abbas Davari and Sediqeh Hosseini, who are deemed to be among leaders of the terrorist group, following the several complaints lodged by the relatives of a number of MKO members.  While different peace-seeking groups and the plaintiffs are demanding implementation of the court ruling, the arrest warrants will produce no results unless the US troops show cooperation, and this has faced the US with a new challenge to prove its allegations about the fight against terrorism in Iraq.  Despite the slogans frequently chanted by the US about a so-called tough campaign against terrorism, ever since the US invasion of Iraq and the fall of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, Washington has always shielded the MKO and provided backup and support for the terrorist group in a bid to use them for materializing its goals.  The Bulgarian military commander in Iraq admitted in May 2006 that his forces are protecting the MKO at the request of the US central command in Iraq.  Bulgaria had withdrawn most of its forces from the occupied Iraq by the end of 2005, but 154 of its soldiers still remain as security guards for the Ashraf camp where 3500 MKO terrorists are based.  MKO terrorists have martyred many innocent Iranians over the past 25 years and had supported Saddam’s tyrannical Ba’th minority regime during the 8-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s.
