Iran Interlink, March 25 2016:… In spite of this history, the MEK rallied its lobbyists to try to push the name of Maryam Rajavi under the nose of parliament. In an act of astounding chutzpah, Labour MP for Brent Central Dawn Butler eagerly submitted a written question on March 15: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will invite Maryam Rajavi to visit Parliament and the UK.

As Kurds remember Saddam’s crimes – Maryam Rajavi clearly not welcome in the UK
In March, Westminster became the focus of Kurdish activities. The respected Centre for Kurdish Progress organized a packed event in Westminster to celebrate Norouz. (The Iranian New Year fell on 20 March this year.)
March 16 however marks the anniversary of the day in 1988 when Iraqi war planes and artillery pounded the Kurdish town of Halabja in northern Iraq with mustard gas and the deadly nerve agent sarin. Some 5,000 people – mainly women and children – died on the day, and up to 12,000 have lost their lives since. A packed rally in Westminster allowed Kurds and sympathisers to remember this tragedy inflicted on them by Saddam Hussein.
Both events were attended by leading politicians, Jeremy Corbyn, Jason McCartney, Hilary Benn and Middle East minister, Tobias Ellwood.
Those familiar with these issues will be aware of the role of the Mojahedin Khalq in supporting and facilitating Saddam Hussein’s genocidal attacks on Iraq’s Kurdish population. The MEK’s Morvarid [Pearl] Operation in March 1991 targeted and killed thousands of Kurdish civilians in an attempt to crush their uprising following Gulf War I.
In spite of this history, the MEK rallied its lobbyists to try to push the name of Maryam Rajavi under the nose of parliament. In an act of astounding chutzpah, Labour MP for Brent Central Dawn Butler eagerly submitted a written question on March 15: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will invite Maryam Rajavi to visit Parliament and the UK.
As Middle East minister, Tobias Ellwood, with Halabja no doubt fresh in his mind, gave a short, definitive reply on March 23: Maryam Rajavi remains excluded from the UK and Her Majesty’s Government has no plans to invite her to visit the UK.
Dawn Butler needs to perform a little more fact checking if she is to retain any credibility.

Facts on MKO’s Participation in Kurdish Genocide
(aka; Mojahedin Khalq, MEK, Rajavi cult)
There are incontrovertible facts about MKO’s genocidal campaign against Iraqi Kurds
… The US Department of State in a comprehensive report to Congress at the end of 1994 also certified that NCRI/MKO forces were involved in the suppression of Iraqi Kurds by saying the followings: “Following the Operation dubbed “Desert Storm”, Iraqi Kurds claimed that MOW helped the Iraqi army in the suppression of Kurds. Those who fled the operation zone and took refuge near Iranian borders corroborated this allegation. In this connection, Jalal Talebeni the Leader of the “Patriotic Movement of Iraqi Kurdistan”, (and the present Iraqi President) told reporters: “In Karkouk Battle, five thousands MKO members joined Saddam’s forces.” …
Mojahedin.ws, February 04, 2013
The incontrovertible facts about MKO’s genocidal campaign against the Iraqi Kurds are so hard that even the organization itself prefers to keep silent over it and even abstains from getting into efforts to attribute it to Iranian regime as an anti-MKO campaign. The Swedish Parliament is just a few steps from making a decision to recognize MKO’s Operation Morvarid (Pearl), a post-Persian Gulf military campaign in collaboration with Saddam to suppress Iraqi Kurds uprising, as genocide and crimes against humanity as it has already recognized Saddam’s Anfal campaign. The following from David Gethin’s New Al-Qaeda in Europe: Iranian Terrorists-Good or Evil provides adequate evidence to dispel any doubt.
The Wall Street Journal reported that in March 1991, after the Persian Gulf War and the operation by American Forces called Desert Storm in Iraq, Saddam Hussein, the then President of Iraq ordered Masoud Rajavi, the President of NCRI, who was at the same time the Leader and the Commander in Chief of MKO and NLA, to help Iraq in suppressing the Kurds uprising in the northern part of the country. Those who were involved in this operation have testified to this fact.
The US Department of State in a comprehensive report to Congress at the end of 1994 also certified that NCRI/MKO forces were involved in the suppression of Iraqi Kurds by saying the followings:
“Following the Operation dubbed “Desert Storm”, Iraqi Kurds claimed that MOW helped the Iraqi army in the suppression of Kurds. Those who fled the operation zone and took refuge near Iranian borders corroborated this allegation.
In this connection, Jalal Talebeni the Leader of the “Patriotic Movement of Iraqi Kurdistan”, (and the present Iraqi President) told reporters:
“In Karkouk Battle, five thousands MKO members joined Saddam’s forces.”
In a book entitled “For the Judgment of History”, the text of the negotiation between Masoud Rajavi, the President of NCRI, with Iraq’s intelligence officials at the time of Saddam Hussein’s rule in Iraq is published. Part of the book is about negotiations between Masoud Rajavi and General Saber Eldori, the then Head of Iraq’s Intelligence Service, right after the 1991 uprising in Iraq. From these negotiations the role of the Leader and members of NCRI in the suppression of the Iraqi people and the extent of their loyalty to Saddam Hussein’s Regime becomes clear.
“General Saber: The President (Saddam Hussein) thanked and appreciated Brother Masoud Rajavi and NLA for the valuable contribution of this army in the suppression of the recent agitations. I explained to him, in detail, the role played by the organisation in this suppressive opera-tion. In the course of operation, I was reporting minute after minute your activities and told him that organisation. Despite little facilities at your disposal and we are sorry that we cannot satisfy all your needs, you have done a great job, beyond our expectations. …I have asked the President to send a thank you letter to Masoud, but the President told me that sending a letter is not enough and he should meet Masoud in person and thank him himself.”
The documentary film of the meeting between Masoud Rajavi, President of NCRI and the Head of the Intelligence Service of Iraq is attached.
Other members of NCRI who accompanied Masoud Rajavi, the President of NCRI, in this meeting and were involved directly in the genocide of 1991 were:
1Mehdi Abrishamchi, Head of NCRI’s Peace Committee 2Abass Davari, Head of NCRI’s Labour Committee 3Ebrahim Zakeri, Head of NCRI’s Security and Counter Terrorism Committee 4Mahdi Boraei, Member of NCRI
It is noteworthy to mention Masoud Rajavi, the President of NCRI was in charge of commanding this genocide operation dubbed “Pearl Operation” against the Kurds. Furthermore, according to the testimonies of the members of NCRI, Mrs. Fereshteh Yeganeh, Chair of Educations and Training Committee of NCRI was responsible for providing logistics and sup-port for the operation.
The crime of genocide against Iraqi Kurds was committed in March 1991 in two regions in the northern parts of Iraqi Kurdistan namely “Kafri” and “Kalar”. The Governor of Iraq’s Kurdistan province in a statement issued the names of persons killed, injured or captured by MKO forces.

Iran Interlink, November 27 2012
In an interview with ‘France 24 News’ Fouad Hussein, head of the office of President Barazani’s Government of the Kurdistan Region, said “regional president Massoud Barazani does not support the survival of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization of Iran (MEK) in Iraq”, denying reports by some media that Barazani gave his support for the MEK to stay in Camp Liberty.
Hussein added that “the Government of Arbil does not differ with the Federal Government in Baghdad on issues relating to Iraq’s sovereignty”, stressing that both demand the organization leave the sovereign country of Iraq.
The head of the office of the Kurdistan Region explained that the MEK committed crimes against Iraqis from north to south, explaining that the Kurdish people in the north were also victims of the Baathists and the MEK, which was an obedient tool in the hands of the former Baathist regime.
Fouad Hussein, arrived in Paris on Saturday to discuss the repercussions of the political crisis that Iraq is going through now.
Deutsche Welle (Albanian), March 14 2016:… The actual risk to Albania will be if the MEK is not disbanded as a group. Disbanding means that each refugee should be treated as an individual. They must be de-radicalised and then integrated back into normal society as ordinary citizens with homes and jobs and families. The MEK must not be allowed to re-organise as a quasi-military group. Clearly, Albania is not as strong as western European countries in this respect and so the process …
Mir Bagher Sedaghi, Switzerland, March 10 2016:… I have been informed that the Rajavi cult has been trying to organize a meeting in your central church in Tirana under the pretext of “defending the lost rights of women”. I was delighted to hear that due to the whistleblowing of the local media during the last month the governmental officials have intervened and the show has been cancelled. As a victim of this anti-women and anti-family cult I am happy and thankful to the Albanian officials who have …
Massoud & Anne Khodabandeh, Huffington Post, March 02 2016:…It is impossible to ignore the fact that MEK members are radicalized to the core. They are not ordinary refugees. Enough of them have been trained in Iraq by the former Saddam regime for terrorist activities as well as forgery, intelligence, military operations and even torture methods, to make them extremely dangerous. Above all, the nature of the MEK leadership style is cultic. This means the f
