A senior Iraqi member of parliament said reminding terrorist groups such as MKO’s crimes is why holding the International Congress of 17000 Iranian Terror Victims is so important.
MP Hunain Al-Qado added that the importance of reminding MKO’s crimes stems from the fact that some people try to keep these crimes under wraps.
Adding that the terrorist groups have all a main purpose, al-Qado said, “there is no difference between the ISIS’ terrorist acts in Iraq and Syria and Mujahedin-e Khalq’s terrorist acts.” “These groups use the same methods and have similar purposes which is creating fear and terrorizing civilians. So, what is going on now in Iraq is a continuation of MKO’s ideology in Iran.”
Emphasizing the need for cooperation between regional countries who were targeted by terrorist groups, al-Qado said, “On account of the arrogant powers’ struggles against Iran as well as their efforts in sowing the seeds of chaos in the Axis of Resistance, which is made up of Syria, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and most probably Yemen in the future, it is vital to set up strategies in order to encourage integration efforts in these countries and other countries which are victims of terrorism.”
“There is, and it must be, a coordination between Iran and Iraq in fighting terrorism, since the growth of terrorism in Iraq threatens Iran’s stability,” head of the Democratic Shabak Assembly added. “So it is vital for Iran to back Iraq in the fight against terrorism, which is an effort in protecting security and territorial integrity of Iran and neighboring countries.”
Iraqi MP finally made a reference to the killing of Shabak minorities at the hands of ISIS following the bombing the holy shrines of two Shia Imams in Samarra, adding, “there has been organized attacked against Shabak minorities to expel them from Mosul.” “Most of them have been killed and their houses were destroyed before the eyes of local authorities. During the last year, ISIS occupied their villages and blew all their mosques out of the water,” he concluded.
