MP: US Should Account for Supporting Terrorist MKO

"The US administration should account for its support for this terrorist grouplet to the world's public opinion," Mohammad Hossein Nejad-Fallah told FNA.

Stressing the terrorist nature of the MKO, he pointed to the group's black record and long-time hostilities towards the Iranian nation, and reminded that the members of the terrorist group have assassinated more than 12,000 innocent Iranians since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

The legislator also reminded the crimes committed by the MKO members against the Iraqi people, specially Iraq's Kurd population, in collaboration with the former Baath regime in previous years, and said, "Today our Muslim brothers in Iraq, like the Iranians, hate the ringleaders and members of this grouplet."

The MKO is blacklisted by much of the international community, including the United States.

The MKO is behind a slew of assassinations and bombings inside Iran, a number of EU parliamentarians said in a recent letter in which they slammed a British court decision to remove the MKO from the British terror list. The EU officials also added that the group has no public support within Iran because of their role in helping Saddam Hussein in the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988).

The group started assassination of the citizens and officials after the revolution in a bid to take control of the newly established Islamic Republic. It killed several of Iran's new leaders in the early years after the revolution, including the then President, Mohammad Ali Rajayee, Prime Minister, Mohammad Javad Bahonar and the Judiciary Chief, Mohammad Hossein Beheshti who were killed in bomb attacks by MKO members in 1981.

The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it was protected by Saddam Hussein and where it helped the Iraqi dictator suppress Shiite and Kurd uprisings in the country.

The terrorist group joined Saddam's army during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988) and helped Saddam and killed thousands of Iranian civilians and soldiers during the US-backed Iraqi imposed war on Iran.

Since the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, the group, which now adheres to a pro-free-market philosophy, has been strongly backed by neo-conservatives in the United States, who also argue for the MKO to be taken off the US terror list.
