Iraqi Tribal Leaders Want Mojahedin Khalq Expelled

Iraqi Tribal Leaders Want Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi cult) Expelled BASRA, Iraq, June 28–Southern Iraq’s tribal leaders held a session Saturday in which they called for a bid to expel the terrorist elements of Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) from Iraqi soil.  Speaking at the session, tribal committee chief at Iraq’s parliament condemned the existence of any terrorist organization in Iraq naming the MKO which was considered as a tool in the hands of Iraq’s former Baath regime to suppress Iraqi Shiites.  Listed as a terrorist organization by Iran, Iraq, the United States, Canada and the European Union, the MKO is believed to be in charge of several terrorist operations carried out especially in Iran and Iraq.  "Southern tribes condemn all terrorist organizations because their hands are stained with Iraqi people’s blood," Daqer al-Mousavi told the session.  Iraqi lawmakers and political leaders have long insisted on a request to expel the anti-Iranian MKO from Iraq.  Earlier this month the United Iraqi alliance, which is the biggest bloc in the parliament, and the National Kurdistan Alliance, submitted a bill to the parliament demanding an end to the presence of MKO terrorists in Iraq which was approved later.  Iraqi officials say the group is playing a significant role in violence and insecurity in the country.  "MKO members are crossing freely in Diyala every day and enjoying the most facilities in the province while Iraqi people are struggling with starvation to survive," Salem al-Dorraji, one of the tribal leaders, told Alalam reporter.  "We have no place for those who slaughtered Iraqi people in 1991 and are still killing our people, they must leave our soil immediately," al-Dorraji added.Supported by Saddam Hossein, the MKO committed widespread crimes in Iraq, killing many people, after the 1991 Persian Gulf War.  Iraq, June 29, 2008 http://www.alalam.ir/english/en-NewsPage.asp?newsid=031030120080628225807
