Advicating Freedom Or Terrorism ?

The West is accustomed to supporting terrorism

TEHRAN – In the latest sign of Western double standards in dealing with the issue of terrorism, a slate of former and current Western officials participated in a gathering held by a widely detested Iranian opposition group that is known for its role in carrying out thousands of targeted assassinations inside Iran in the 1980s.

The group, Mojahedin-e-Khalq, also known by its initials MEK or MKO, began its annual three-day conference online on Saturday with several former and current American and European officials delivering paid speeches via videoconference. The officials mostly launched into worn-out tirades about Iran’s internal and foreign policy.

About 30 members of U.S. Congress are expected to participate in this year’s conference of MEK, including Senator Bob Menendez, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Republican Senator Ted Cruz, and Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, as well as former ministers and officials from Europe, the United States and Canada.

Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa also delivered a speech at the conference, drawing harsh criticism from Iran and promoting the Iranian Foreign Ministry to summons the Slovenian ambassador to Tehran.

In a statement on Sunday, the ministry called Jansa’s move “unacceptable and undiplomatic.”

“After the presence of Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa in the virtual meeting of Mojahedin-e-Khalq terrorist grouping, the Iranian foreign minister’s assistant and director general of the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe department of the Foreign Ministry summoned Slovenia’s ambassador to Tehran Ms. Christina Radi and after conveying Iran’s strong protest against this move and the baseless accusations leveled against the Islamic Republic of Iran, gave her Iran’s official notice of protest against the government of Slovenia,” the ministry said in a statement.

“During the meeting, it was emphasized that Iran condemns the virtual presence of Slovenia’s premier in the gathering of a terrorist group, loathed among the great Iranian nation, as well as the official’s false and nonsensical remarks, which run counter to diplomatic norms and the atmosphere of bilateral relations,” the Iranian Foreign Ministry said, noting, “This is besides the fact that supporting a terrorist grouping violates the UN charter, recognized international principles and human rights values and is, under no pretext, acceptable.”

Western Hypocrisy . Thirst For Money & Anti-Iran Obsession

The Western officials’ participation in the MKO conference reflects a deeply flawed understanding of Iran on the part of the West. Every year, dozens of these officials flocked to Paris to deliver furious speeches to the cheers of a mostly hired audience. They kept participating, though virtually, in the MEK gatherings even during the coronavirus pandemic. Of course, most of these officials do so for the sake of money. At the end of the day, MEK offers irresistible lump sums for short appearances and thus one can make a quick buck within a few minutes by reading an already prepared text or regurgitating what had been said by others all the time.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh pointed to this issue in a tweet on Saturday, saying, “Bought western politicians (incl #LyingCheatingStealing Pompeo) sell themselves cheap for a Europe-hosted circus arranged by a once Saddam-backed terrorist cult with Iranian blood on its hands. Insatiable thirst for $$ & anti-Iran obsession is driving shameful western hypocrisy.”

But some participants appear in MEK gatherings with different goals. It is difficult to imagine that some influential former and current officials show up at these gatherings simply to make money. For Example, former Saudi spy chief Turki al-Faisal is by no means in need of the money of a group facing growing accusations of being on the Saudi payroll.

This type of officials often sees MEK as their last hope of bringing about fundamental political change in Iran while falsely believing that the group is capable of bringing down the Iranian government. But this is wishful thinking simply because MEK has no constituency in Iran and its propaganda of being “the most organized Iranian opposition group” rests only on its ability to pay off hapless refugees and adventurous college students to fill in for real Iranians.

The lack of popularity among ordinary Iranians begs the question of why MEK has been confined to the dustbin of history in Iran. MEK’s unpopularity among the Iranians stems from two things: First, the group had been implicated in many terrorist attacks and assassinations in Iran in the 1980s. Second, while the group was going on a killing spree in Iran its leaders colluded with Iran’s number one nemesis, Saddam Hussein, the former dictator of Iraq who gave them many military bases near Baghdad. With the military support of Saddam, MEK mounted a devastating military attack on Iran that led to its forever eradication in the country. Iranians have never forgotten, nor have they forgiven, this act of treason by MEK.

Mujahedin Khalq Benefactors From Iraqi Saddam To Saudi MBS

This may explain why the Iranian people feel offended when they see Western officials advocate for “freedom” in Iran to be achieved by a group having the blood of thousands of Iranians on its hands. The main reason why Iran usually accuses the West of sponsoring terrorism is their continued, brazen support for MEK, which has been on the blacklist of the U.S. and the European Union until recently.

Iran has always complained that the West supported terrorism. And Western participation in MEK “circus” gives Iran all the more reason to repeat this complaint. For Iran, the Western support of terrorism represented by MEK is not an exception. Instead, it’s a tradition deeply rooted in Western hypocrisy and is a habit the West finds difficult to kick.

2- Zarif holds phone talk with Borrell over Slovenian PM remarks

Advicating Freedom Or Terrorism ? 

TEHRAN, Jul. 11 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held a telephone conversation with High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy Josep Borrell on Sunday over the statements raised by Slovenian prime minister.
During the phone talk, Foreign Minister Zarif called for a clarification of European Union’s position regarding the recent remarks of Slovenian prime minister.

Following the presence, exaggerations and baseless remarks of Prime Minister of Slovenia yesterday in the virtual meeting of the terrorist group (MKO) and considering that Slovenia is currently holding the rotating presidency of the European Union, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a phone call on Sunday evening with EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell, while condemning the unacceptable action of the Prime Minister of Slovenia, called for clarification of the EU position on this issue.

While expressing his regret over remarks put forwards by Slovenian prime minister, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Policy Josep Borrell stressed that the remarks of Slovenian Prime Minister and what was said at the meeting were in no way the position of the European Union towards relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

He went on to say that the positions of European Union at the level of leaders are expressed only by the President of the Council and at the level of Ministers only by the High Representative of the European Union, so that the remarks of Prime Minister of Slovenia are not in any way in the capacity of the European Union.

It should be noted that Slovenian Ambassador to Tehran was summoned to Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday following the attendance of the Slovenian Prime Minister in the virtual meeting of the MKO terrorist group.

1- Iranian ambassador strongly condemns report by some British MPs

Tehran Times

TEHRAN – Iran’s ambassador to London has censured a report by a number of British parliamentarians, saying it backs regime change in Iran through “maximum pressure” campaign introduced by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Writing on his Twitter account on Wednesday, Hamid Baeidinejad said the architect of the “maximum pressure” strategy who was defeated in the November election and is being driven out of the White House should serve as a lesson for them.

“We condemn in its strongest term a report issued on developments regarding Iran by a few UK MPs. This report is not more than advocating regime change through maximum pressure policy against Iran, while the main architect of this failed policy is driven out of the White House,” Baeidinejad tweeted.

The tweet by the ambassador came after the MPs said the British government should designate Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.

According to Independent, the House of Commons foreign affairs committee argued in the report that the influential branch of the Iranian military should face sanctions.

Referring to the IRGC, committee chairman Tom Tugendhat claimed, “The group’s destructive philosophy and violence within Iran and across the region make a compelling case for it to be singled out for sanction.”

The committee’s report also said the UK government should work with the U.S. to encourage Iran to play a “positive, constructive and predictable role” as a regional power.

They said the UK’s strategy should send a clear message that “Iran’s destabilizing activities are unacceptable because they adversely impact the region and its people, but that, when the time comes, the door is open for diplomacy.”

2- Iran Blasts UK Parliamentary Committee for Hostile Report

Tasnim News

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Embassy in London condemned a report that a committee of the UK Parliament has published about relationship with Tehran.
In a post on his Twitter account on Wednesday, Iranian Ambassador to the UK Hamid Baeidinejad denounced the report published by the UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee about Iran.

“We condemn in its strongest term a report issued on developments regarding Iran by a few UK MPs. This report is not more than advocating regime change through maximum pressure policy against Iran, while the main architect of this failed policy is driven out of the White House,” the Iranian ambassador said, referring to the termination of US President Donald Trump’s tenure.

In two other posts in the Persian language, Baeidinejad said the report published by the committee is not a measure approved or a conclusion endorsed by the UK Parliament.

The report is not going to turn into a parliamentary measure either, he added.

“This report has been provided within a very limited group with an absolutely hostile approach and on the basis of analyses and recommendations from the Zionists and Munafeqin (Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization terrorists) to make the last impacts on the future developments,” the envoy said.

The ambassador also slammed Chair of the UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Tom Tugendhat, who has coordinated the preparation of the report, for working as the mouthpiece of the MKO and the hostile groups seeking to topple the Islamic Republic.

“This report has no legitimacy and value,” the envoy added, noting that the Iranian Embassy has sent an official note of protest to the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and has strongly condemned the preparation of such report by a number of hardline British MPs.

The UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee report entitled ‘No prosperity without justice: the UK’s relationship with Iran’ has called on the UK government to foster a long-term, international response to addresses what it called Iran’s wider destabilizing activities.

3- Walk in EU corridors to find terrorists

Mehr News

TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (MNA) – The head of the Iranian Judiciary’s High Council for Human Rights has strongly condemned the resolution adopted by the European Union against Iran.
“Those who have hampered the access of innocent children to medicine are not competent to even talk about rights of animals, let alone humans,” Ali Bagheri-Kani said in a live interview with a radio station on Friday.

The remarks come as the European Union adopted a so-called human rights resolution on Thursday following the execution of Ruhollah Zam.

European countries are now complicit in murdering tens of Iranian children who failed to access medicine due to the West’s sanctions, he said.

The Europeans have gone so far as to give Swedish citizenship to a criminal who, in addition to spying, played an effective role in assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists, the official added.

Referring to the European Parliament’s request to Iran to receive a special rapporteur, he said “It is not necessary to travel to Iran to observe human rights violations. It is enough to walk in the corridors of the European Parliament to see terrorists whose hands are stained with the blood of 17,000 innocent Iranian nationals.”

“Manufacturers and sellers of chemical weapons to dictator Saddam Hussein, who killed thousands of young Iranians, are still beside you, committing crimes against the Iranian people from Europe. Please look around to see the real violators of the rights of the Iranian people,” he added.

4- EU’s anti-Iran resolution against intl. laws: Iranian parliament

IRNA

Tehran, Dec 20, IRNA – The Iranian Parliament has issued a statement to condemn a recent anti-Iran human rights resolution by the European Union, criticizing the European Parliament’s support for US economic terrorism against the Iranians.

The Human Rights Committee of the Majlis (the Iranian parliament), chaired by Zohreh Elahyan, addressed the Human Rights Committee of the European Parliament, saying that the anti-Iran resolution made the Iranian lawmakers completely surprised and dissatisfied.
As the European Parliament is well aware, every country has the legitimate right to formulate and implement criminal laws; so, Iran’s judiciary branch holds fair trials based on respecting the rights of the suspects, the statement read.

According to the statement, it is very odd that the European body ignored the principle of relationships between parliaments and issued an anti-human rights resolution against Iran based on political motivations, which is contrary to international law in the eyes of independent countries.
Condemning the selective approach to human rights by the European parliament, the Iranian legislators warned that the issuance of the resolution shows Europeans support US-imposed unilateral sanctions on the great nation of Iran, which is considered a disgraceful act.

The Iranian lawmakers also urged Europe to stop providing the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group with a safe haven in the heart of the green continent
The statement further recommended the members of the European Parliament to examine the systematic violation of the rights of the Muslim and other minorities in their own countries.

The Iranian parliament repeated its full support for the legal proceedings carried out by the judiciary branch in the Islamic country, stressing that Iran reserves the right to retaliate such an interfering action.
