The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO) are both groups of zealous extremists left over from the days of crisis in Iraq. They are both supported by a group of Western high profiles.
Western supporters of these extremists are shadowy people about their real intentions. Members of the European Parliament who back the MKO as what they call "Resistance" and the ISIS as what they call "part of popular uprising" hardly ever like to go on public record supporting terrorist extremist like the MKO and ISIS unless it is the highest priority which is their common enemy in the region, Islamic Republic of Iran. This means that terrorism designations are fundamentally political choices according to such Western politicians.
The so-called Grand Iranian Gathering was attended by dozens of purchased politic men who praised the MKO and its brother ISIS. While the main objective of the meeting was to support the MKO’s so-called resistance, the cult leader Maryam Rajavi seized the opportunity to violently lash out against Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and rejoice over the progress achieved by the ISIS.
The ISIS atrocities in Iraq were claimed by the MKO as victories of "Iraqi revolutionary forces and tribes"! The group’s opportunistic strategy sees its survival in the achievements of the so-called Islamic State that seeks to seize the entire Islamic countries in the region.
Today, in the chaotic situation of Iraq and Syria, the MKO might be the last thing that the international community pays attention to. Thus the MKO resorts to any notorious force that opposes Iraqi and Iranian states. It contributes with them, tries to get involved with them just to draw the world’s attention to itself.
Maryam Rajavi’s meeting with Ahmed Jarba the head of Syrian opposition two months ago was another effort made by the MKO to get itself seen in the region’s equation. To obtain this goal the group’s skillful propaganda bought officials and audience and held its annual gathering –this year—to demonstrate its support for the Saddamist extremists whose leader claimed to be the Califat of all Muslims around the world.
Maryam Rajavi perhaps dreams of ruling one of the provinces in the map of ISIS’s territory 5-year plan !
