MKO source of terrorist acts in Iraq

Secretary General of Habilian Association said the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq organization (MKO, a.k.a. MEK) is the primary trainer of active terrorists in Iraq.

Speaking in a meeting with members of Youth Parliament of Iraq and a number of Ministry of Youth and Sports members, Seyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad said that Iran and Iraq share common civilization heritage, adding that the convergence between the two nations, after the fall of Saddam, is very positive.

“The forty year gap between the two nations of Iran and Iraq was very bothersome,” he added. “The gap was due to an authoritarian government before the Islamic Revolution in Iran and a dictatorial government during the Ba’ath regime in Iraq.”

Son of late AbdolKarim Hasheminejad added that the Saddam’s support for terrorist groups including MKO was one of the excuses of the US for attacking Iran.

“But after the fall of Saddam we saw that not only this terrorist group was not destroyed, but it was placed under the direct support of the US government.” “This group-let enjoyed the best conveniences, while most Iraqi people were deprived of many facilities.”

Hasheminejad went on to explain the role of MKO in the terrorist acts happened in Iraq and said, “This group-let trained suicide bombers in its military headquarters, which were under the protection of US troops, and the initial core of the terrorist operations in Iraq was created by this group-let.”
