A French group which warns against violent cults recently faced the dangers of the Mujaheedin-e Khalq Organization, an antiIranian terrorist group whose leadership is based just outside of Paris. Association PEACE bravely held a demonstration in the MKO’s hometown, and was quickly confronted by the routine violence of their members.
Association PEACE studies cults and warns people to prevent further indoctrinations and more ruined lives. Considering that the MKO is composed of Iranian citizens who fought alongside Iraq in the Iran-Iraq War, many are painfully aware of their violent history. But Association PEACE says many French people are kept in the dark. Despite the mass graves recently uncovered at the MKO’s Camp Ashraf in Iraq, their massacre of Iraqi Kurds for Saddam Hussein and the assassination of Iranian citizens and leaders, the MKO still has friends in high places. Those friends do not include any Iranian citizens, but they do include France’s political elite.
The anti-Iran terrorist group the M-K-O has tried for years to whitewash its bloody and treacherous past, and they have even been removed from the terrorist list of the European Union and the United States. But when they were confronted with a demonstration against their presence in France, members of the group resorted to their usual violent tactics.
