A US citizen has confronted a group of supporters of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) protesting the visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to New York.
During Ahmadinejad visit New York, the man, who said he was Jewish, objected to the protesters, saying they should have directed their slogans against the US, which he accused of committing crimes.
He addressed the protesters, saying that the United States has millions of nuclear warheads and killed many Black people in the 1960s, implying that they should protest against the US government instead of Iran.
He called the protesters ignorant and said the US supported Israel, which has killed many Palestinians.
He told them Israel has many nuclear warheads and they should protest against the real terrorists.
Founded in the 1960s, the MKO has masterminded terrorist operations in Iran and Iraq, killing thousands of people and wounding many more.
The group is especially notorious in Iran for having sided with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
The public prosecutor of the Iraqi High Tribunal, Jaafar al-Mousawi, stated in mid-August that investigations have incriminated MKO members, showing they played a leading role in the killings of Iraqi civilians.
Mousawi also stated that the terrorist group had supported Saddam Hussein’s Baathist regime and aided in the suppression of the Iraqi people’s uprising in 1991 and the torture and massacre of innocent people in the northern and southern regions of the country.
