Israeli lobby – European Parliament branch – has ‘dropped the dead donkey’
In a new development, Struan Stevenson and Vidal Qadras have stopped their support for the Rajavis, leaders of the Mojahedin-e Khalq cult.
The former advocates of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation (MKO, MEK, NCRI, Rajavi cult) moved to the Iraq Delegation to make best use of the cult when the MKO issue became defunct in relation to Iran and became a more useful tool in support of the Saddamists in Iraq.
But the MKO failed to do anything for them in Iraq, and the Israeli lobby has decided to get involved again in demonizing Iran.
It is particularly pertinent at precisely the time when Israeli soldiers killed several aid workers on a ship in international waters – what it described as a ‘PR disaster’! which fed into the hands of Iran.
In a protest, MEPs Stevenson and Vidal-Qadras, from the Iraq Delegation, heckled the Iranian Foreign Minister during his visit to the European Parliament.
The significance of this is that in the rush to get back to issues involving Iran, they have abandoned the MKO. As they say in the newsroom, they have ‘dropped the dead donkey’.
