The legacy of Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein appears in a more dangerous group called Islamic Iraqi State and the Levant (Daesh in Arabic).
ISIS was formed in April 2013 and grew out of al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). It has since been disavowed by al-Qaeda, but become one of the main jihadist groups fighting government forces in Syria and is making military gains in Iraq according to BBC.
Correspondents say it appears to be surpassing al-Qaeda as the world’s most dangerous jihadist group. Some suggest that Al Qaida rejects ISIS because it is too extreme!
One part of the ISIS’s supporters in Iraq includes elements of former Iraqi Baa’th regime that severely oppose the government of Nouri al Maliki. Eventually, as "Saddam’s Private Army" the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO) is naturally one of their sponsors in their distressing acts of violence and terror in Iraq and Syria.
Baathists welcome ISIS and MKO welcomes both. Saddam Hussein’s daughter in Jordan, with whom the MKO is in close collaboration, went further and thanked the Saudi government for supporting ISIS, reported Iran Interlink.
This devil alliance between Baathists, extremists and cultists is not accidental. It is actually originated in the cult-like violence which exists in the substance of such groups. Definitely, the cult of Rajavi and ISIS resort to violence and terror as their only solution to the world’s problems.
The most crucial factor in the rule of both which is based in violence is that dissident voice must be silenced by killing and bloodshed. This essential rule was instructed to them by their main masters Saddam Hussein and Osama. However, today they are more aggressive that their predecessors.
The MKO leaders also deal out harsh treatment against their own members in their camps. Members including hundreds of women are isolated from the outside world just like the so-called Islamic state of ISIS in Mosul under which women are banned from getting out of house or being uncovered.
The cult’s website praises the ISIS’s statement in which it promises to kill the government forces unless they surrender. Calling the ISIS terrorists as “Revolutionary forces” the MKO propaganda expresses solidarity with them.
ISIS forces are considered brothers by the MKO because they are the group’s ideological brothers if not biological brothers.
