A letter to the President of Iraq

 Dear Mr. Jalal Talebani, Distinguished president of Iraq Though our organization are opposed to the death penalty, we still cannot hide our relief over the fact that Saddam Hussein, the former dictator of Iraq after 30 years of campaign of terror have finally been brought to justice and convicted of his crimes. Saddam Hussein has been convicted to death for the murder of 148 citizens of Dujail, a violent retaliation against a failed assassination attempt on 8 July in 1982. Currently he is being trialed in the genocide committed against the Kurds in the Anfal campaign. During the chemical bombing of the city of Halabje, more then 5000 men, women and children were killed. Mr. President, you know better then anyone that in 1991, Saddam Hussein with the help of his private army the Mojahedin-e Khalq of Iran, was part of the oppression of the Kurds. In this act of murder tens of innocent Kurdish people were killed. The Mojahedin army conducted their attack on the Kurdish towns of Klar, toz khormatooz, soleiman beik, kefri and jalola, and went on a mission to kill and drive the Kurds out. “ A number of our current members were at the time members of the Mojahedin army and witnessed these atrocities close hand and for this reason they decided to leave this terrorist and murderous organization. “ Our organization has been actively working to expose this horrendous crime and bring these events unto the public arena since 1993. Our appeal to the government of Iraq is if possible:  1. Adding the suppression of the Kurds during 1990 to Saddam Husseins current criminal charges   2. And that the leaders of Mojahedin-e Khalq, Massoud and Maryam Rajavi should also be brought under these charges and prosecuted as war criminals  Our members who are for the most part European citizens are willing and able to give witness in documenting and subsequent trial of these men. With the outmost respect Karim Haghi Moni Iran Peyvand association This letter is also passed along to these following  Mr. Nouri al-Maliki, Prime minister of Iraq Judiciary of Iraq The Iraqi parliament Iran Peyvand Association, November 13, 2006
