On Wednesday, 20 September 2006, a number of mojahedin Khalq (MKO) members gathered outside the UN Headquarters as the Iranian president Ahmadinejad was to deliver his speech at the world forum. Reporting the rally, the Aljazeera TV network, these Iranian opponents carried portraits of the leaders of MKO, Massoud and Maryam Rajavi.
It is an accepted tactic of struggle for MKO to hold protesting rallies against the presence of Iranian officials in international occasions. The question is pointed at the US government that who is it possible to let a proscribed terrorist organization openly hold a rally wavering the portraits of its leaders boldly before the eyes of the US citizens already under the shock of a terrorist event they were commemorating its anniversary only nine days ago?
MKO, operating under various aliases, is blacklisted a terrorist group by the State Department and its activities are banned according to the anti-terrorist laws. Consider that the group has orchestrated the rally under the cover of another non-proscribed name but what about the banners and the portraits of its well known leaders carried by the sympathizers? Is the US really sincere in its claim to be a forerunner of war against terrorism?
It is up to intelligent minds of the US citizens to question the government why it attacks other countries on pretext of war against terrorism while the real terrorists freely dance, and wave on its very soil. The US opposition to Iran’s current regime in no way justifies the open activities of a terrorist, opposition group that might jeopardize its national security.
