MKO Hatching Plots to Create Tension in Iran

The anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, NCR and PMOI) is hatching different plots to prepare their members to infiltrate Iranian borders to create tension during the election time in June.

The MKO ringleaders who ordered the terrorist group’s members to create tumult and carry out sabotage acts in Iran during the 2009 presidential election are now trying to find new ways to repeat the same events during the June voting.

In pursuit of the same goals, the MKO members have been ordered to make use of all means, including social networks, websites and weblogs, to incite conflicts in the Iranian society before the election and even kill people in Iran to blame the Iranian security forces for their deaths.

The MKO ringleaders, believe that killing people will increase the differences and radicalizes the Iranian society on the threshold of the June 14 presidential election.

MKO along with the foreign spy agencies played a major role in the post-election unrests in Iran in 2009.

One of the rioters arrested during Iran’s post-election unrests confessed that he had received trainings in the Camp Ashraf of the MKO in Iraq to conduct sabotage and terror operations in Iran.

Nasser Abdul-Hosseini, alias Behrouz, who was detained for his major role in post-election unrests made the confessions to a court hearing in Tehran in 2009. Abdul-Hosseni admitted all charges raised against him in the indictment.

"I went there (the camp) after crossing Iran-Iraq border at Qasr-e Shirin illegally and I was trained by a person named Siyavash in a bid to stage operations in Tehran," Hosseini said during the court hearing.

About the details of his training program, the detainee confessed that he had been trained to spark unrests in peaceful demonstrations, take photographs of any empty polling station and send them to MKO headquarters and raise pictures of MKO leaders at Iranian universities.

He further confessed that after June 12, 2009, presidential election he learned how to make Cocktail Molotov and received trainings from a woman named Zohreh, a London-based MKO member, to set buses and mosques on fire.

Hosseini added that he was arrested by Iranian security forces before fulfilling his mission.

The MKO, founded in the 1960s, blended elements of Islamism and Stalinism and participated in the overthrow of the US-backed Shah of Iran in 1979. Ahead of the revolution, the MKO conducted attacks and assassinations against both Iranian and Western targets.

The group started assassination of the citizens and officials after the revolution in a bid to take control of the newly-established Islamic Republic. It killed several of Iran’s new leaders in the early years after the revolution, including the then President Mohammad Ali Rajayee, Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar and Judiciary Chief Mohammad Hossein Beheshti who were killed in bomb attacks by MKO members in 1981.

The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it was protected by Saddam Hussein and where it helped the Iraqi dictator suppress Shiite and Kurd uprisings in the country.

The terrorist group joined Saddam’s army during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988) and helped Saddam and killed thousands of Iranian civilians and soldiers during the US-backed Iraqi imposed war on Iran.
