Maryam Rajavi once again resorts to her ex-enemy to survive. Following the raid by Iraqi police to Camp Ashraf, Maryam Rajavi asked her new God-father and her former Imperialist enemy, the United States for help. According to THE HOFFINGTON POST:
The People’s Mujahedeen of Iran wants the United States to re-establish temporary control over Camp Ashraf, where some 3,500 of its members have been confined since being disarmed by U.S. forces after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, said Maryam Rajavi, leader of the National Council of Resistance of Iran – an umbrella group that includes the People’s Mujahedeen.
Iraqi authorities raided the camp on July 29 with the aim of setting up a police station inside, according to officials in Baghdad. They said six people were killed and 35 people were detained after the exiles resisted the effort and provoked a riot.
The National Council, however, accused the Iraqis of staging the raid at Tehran’s request, and said nine people were killed and some 500 injured, while 36 people were detained. It also alleged the Iraqis were denying medical help to seven people seriously injured, and blocking food and medical supplies to the camp.
Iraqi forces took over the camp’s security from the U.S. military on Feb. 20 as part of a security pact. The U.S. military had pledged that the camp’s residents would be treated as "protected persons" under the Geneva Conventions.
The People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, which is committed to toppling Iran’s regime, is considered a terrorist organization by the United States.
Mrs. Rajavi perhaps remembers their anti America slogans:”American! Get lost! “.Today she does not hesitate to declare her ideological shift:
Rajavi urged the United States to take control of the camp, and asked that the United Nations set up a long-term mission there.
Rajavi also called on Washington to prevent any camp members from being extradited to Iran – as the U.S. military had assured.
"The international community and Western countries must react immediately," Rajavi told The Associated Press after holding a news conference in Paris.
