Ali Akbar Rastgou, Aawa Association, Germany, January 11 2014: … Similar to the other european support-organizations, like the „Deutsch Solidaritätskommitee für einen freien Iran (DSFI)“, „The British Parliamentary Commitee for Iran Freedom“ – http://iran-freedom.org/ – or „Friends of a Free Iran“ in the European Parliament, the „Comitetul Parlamentarilor Romani Pentru Iranul Liber …
Open letter to Mrs. Dana M Popa, Romania
Dear Mrs Popa,
by your home page – www.freeiran-romania.org -, we took notice of the „Comitetul Parlamentarilor Romani Pentru Iranul Liber“. As an Iranian-exile-association from Germany, we also campaign for human rights and democracy in Iran.
However it is conspicuous, that the statements and reports on your home page nearly exclusively deal with the well known claims and demands of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organisation (MEK/MKO/PMOI).
The MEK has no political significance inside Iran and is not the right way forward to get involved with a free and democratic Iran.
Similar to the other european support-organizations, like the „Deutsch Solidaritätskommitee für einen freien Iran (DSFI)“, „The British Parliamentary Commitee for Iran Freedom“ – http://iran-freedom.org/ – or „Friends of a Free Iran“ in the European Parliament, the „Comitetul Parlamentarilor Romani Pentru Iranul Liber“ seem to be just another lobby-organization and mouthpiece of the MEK.
Such a commitment only aids the MEK and not the people inside Iran.
A first step showing real humanitarian commitment could be, urging the Romanian government to take some refugees from Camp Liberty and save them from further attacks.
In contrast the MEK at any cost tries to keep their members together, to easier indoctrinate and control them. At the moment the Liberty-residents pay the price of permanent fear of further attacks and deaths.
The fact, that again and again European politicians feel up to disseminate those contradictory and escapist demands of the MEK without reflecting about seem to militate for the PR and lobbying of the MEK.
With such a blind commitment you run the risk of losing your political credibility as some European politicians hat to learn already.
For much background information about the lobbying of the MEK, please contact us.
With best regards,
AAWA Association e.V.

Massoud Khodabandeh, Iranian.com, January 03 2014: …It is ludicrous to assert that an attacking force would need to rely on Dalili as a guide two years after he left the organisation when this information was already in the public domain, and ludicrous they would take him along as he was over 50 years old. It is ludicrous that an attacking force would take acid with them to deliberately …
Global Research, December 30 2013: … The Israeli and Western spy agencies, collaborated by the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), have assassinated several Iranian scientists in the last four years. In the fifth attack of its kind, terrorists killed a 32-year-old Iranian scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, and his driver on January 11, 2012. The blast took place on the …
Anne Khodabandeh (Singleton), Middle East Strategy Consultants, December 27 2013: … In the past year over 8,000 people have died in violent incidents in Iraq. The problem is not that the MEK are being singled out for attack, the real problem is that nobody is allowed to get inside Camp Liberty to help rescue these people from their enforced captivity. Nobody is allowed to help them or …
Mojahedin Monitor, October 15, 2013: … From the MEK statement it is clear that Ali Manouri has a close organisational relationship with the organisation and it is clear that he has been involved in the money laundering and financial section of the cult. In this desperate attempt, the Mojahedin Khalq are trying to claim that “he has been an agent of Iran and had infiltrated the cult”. It is not …
