This week saw the relocation of Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK, also MKO and PMOI) from Camp Ashraf to a Temporary Transit Location, which was along with MKO’s complaints and moaning about being banned to carry their resources which “were provided for terrorist services rendered by supporters in Iraq (Saddam Hussein), Saudi Arabia, America, and elsewhere,” as Paul Sheldon Foote, a professor with California State University Fullerton (CSUF), puts it.
In an interview with Habilian Foundation (families of Iranian terror victims) on Wednesday, Paul Sheldon Foote, said that the Iraqis should have the freedom to close MEK camps immediately, adding Mujahedin-e Khalq has “no right to remain in Iraq.”
“The American government plans to continue using the MEK for terrorist activities inside Iran,” added Sheldon Foote.
MEK is now hue and crying over not being allowed to carry their medicine, medical instruments, power generators, office facilities (chairs, desks and copy machines), water heaters, sanitary equipment, cupboards, etc. to the Temporary Transit Location!
“These resources were provided for terrorist services rendered by supporters in Iraq (Saddam Hussein), Saudi Arabia, America, and elsewhere,” Sheldon said regarding the issue.
Concerning the latest allegations regarding Iran’s involvement in recent terrorist attacks in Thailand, Sheldon Foote made reference to an Indian author’s article rejecting the Israeli claims upon because of the close trading relationship between Iran and India.
He stressed that they “want an excuse for attacking Iran.”
Referring to the MEK member arrested in Thailand, Paul Sheldon Foote underlined that it is expensive to hire supporters for terrorists, adding that (MKO) terrorists “earn their way by pleasing their supporters” by means of committing acts of terror against their enemies.
Earlier this week the first step towards the expulsion of MKO terrorists from Iraq were taken by transferring some 400 members to a Temporary Transit Location in order for UNHCR to determine their refugee status.
