Rajavi: To let go of my hostages, you have to pay me more

Rajavi reacts to the Iraqi parliament supporting families of the hostages in Camp Liberty (From Canada!!)

Mojahedin Khalq (aka National Council of Resistance, MKO, MEK, Rajavi cult) have put the reaction of their fugitive leader Massoud Rajavi on their site.

One of their banners reads “Issue Visas for us to visit our children in Camp Liberty”. We asked the Iraqi Foreign ministry about this. the reply was simple. “Ask for Visa and if rejected, then protest. Iraq is more that happy to give Visa specially if it is for reunion between families. We also welcome any help given to remove the residents of Camp Liberty out of Iraq”.

Massoud Khodabandeh from  Middle East Strategy Consultants commented on this saying:

“Considering the resettlement of MEK members from Iraq to Albania is financed by the United Nations (And partly by the Iraqi Government), Rajavi’s message could not be more clear. Pay me more if you expect me to release the hostages in Camp Liberty. This is not his first time. He has on many occasions asked for ransom whether in Iraq or in France. Unfortunately too many times getting what he wants but not keeping his side of the bargain. Remember America’s Secretary of State Hilary Clinton taking them off the American list of bad terrorists if they evacuate Camp Ashraf without violence in return. Rajavi’ cult got off the list as promised but refused to allow the transfer of the last 100 remaining people until over 50 of them were killed by the angry Iraqis who had their relatives killed by Mojahedin Khalq under the protection of Saddam”.

Relatives of Camp Liberty residents rally outside Iraqi embassy in Canada

Thursday, 03 December 2015 09:12

NCRI – Relatives of members of the Iranian opposition who are under siege in Iraq held a rally outside the Iraqi embassy in Ottawa on Monday.

The protestors condemned the recent plots by agents of the Iranian regime’s Intelligence Ministry against the members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in Camp Liberty, near Baghdad.

They pointed out that the regime’s intelligence agents were being sent to the camp under the ‘bogus guise’ of relatives of the Camp Liberty residents, while actual family members of the residents around the world were being denied visas by the Iraqi government to visit their loved ones in the camp.

The Iranian protestors vowed to expose the mullahs’ intelligence agents and their plots to bring harm to the PMOI (MEK) members in Camp Liberty.

Families of Liberty Residents at the Doors

Second group of families of Liberty residents went to the camp near Baghdad, Iraq.

On Friday November 20th, another group of families of residents of Camp Liberty – taken as hostages by the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO) picketed in front of the camp in an effort to get news about their loved ones there.

These families demand the local authorities of the UNHCR to aid them with information about their dear ones who are not allowed to visit them.

The families were from Eastern Azarbayjan, Markazi and Isfahan provinces. They stayed the previous night in a hotel in Baghdad. They were present in front of the doors of Liberty, on Friday morning at 10 O’clock.

They are determined not to leave the camp unless the UNHCR gives them proper information about the destiny of their children and unless they are able to have a short visit with them.

As well as the first time, using loudspeakers, cellphones and cameras was forbidden for the families but they tried to cry the names of the children so energetically that they could hear them. They also tried to enter the Camp but they were not allowed.

They called on all human rights activists including Europe-based defectors of the MKO to support the action taken by the families and to put pressure on the UNHCR to allow families to visit their children. The UN should answer why it is acting in line with the ambitions of the Rajavis.

Rajavi’s lobbyists demand Mojahedin Khalq terrorist cult in Iraq be re-armed rather than removed

Anne Khodabandeh (Singleton), Iran Interlink, January 14 2015:…  Whether delusional or corrupt, this gang – listed below and now posing as the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) – says the residents of Camp Liberty should have their “personal protection weapons returned to them for self-defence following serious threats and attacks [sic] as the …

Rajavi’s lobbyists demand Mojahedin Khalq terrorist cult in Iraq be re-armed rather than removed

It is surely ironic that the same bunch of people who lobbied hard and at great expense to have the Mojahedin Khalq terrorist cult removed from European and American terrorist lists (the flimsy claim they had renounced terrorism was only possible because in 2003 the US army captured, disarmed and confined them to a single camp in Iraq), is now lobbying to have them re-armed.

Whether delusional or corrupt, this gang – listed below and now posing as the International Committee in Search of Justice (ISJ) – says the residents of Camp Liberty should have their “personal protection weapons returned to them for self-defence following serious threats and attacks [sic] as the Iranian regime’s intervention in Iraq grows”. But has neglected to inform their English speaking audience that the MEK leader, Massoud Rajavi, has demanded the MEK be re-armed with heavy weapons as well as small arms.

In any case, anyone who knows anything about the situation of Camp Liberty knows that the residents are deliberately imprisoned incommunicado inside the camp by the MEK leaders, that the greatest danger these residents face is from these MEK leaders, and that small arms are wanted in order to impose greater control over these captives as they become more and more desperate to escape the tyranny of the cult.

The ISJ statement should certainly not be read without context: Since attaining sovereignty in 2009, each successive government of Iraq has designated the MEK as a terrorist entity which must, under the Constitution, be entirely removed from Iraqi territory. The demand for re-arming rather than removing this group is doubly insulting for a country still swarming with Western spawned terrorist groups.

Perhaps the most ironic ‘complaint’ of the Committee is that the government of Iraq is not investigating the September 1, 2013 attack on Camp Ashraf in which fifty three people died. How is this possible when forty two key eye witnesses – survivors of the attack – have been incarcerated by the MEK inside Camp Liberty so that no investigator in the world has access to them?

Instead of demanding the MEK be re-armed ready to utilize violence again – the raison d’etre of the terrorist cult – this gang should be demanding from Massoud and Maryam Rajavi that each resident of Camp Liberty be given the opportunity to make contact with their families in privacy and to freely leave the camp if they desire. Then we would see how quickly and efficiently these people can be resettled.

List of members of the ISJ according to the MEK:

Alejo Vidal-Quadras, former MEP; Patrick Kennedy, former Congressman; Günter Verheugen, former member of the EU Commission; Nicole Fontaine, former MEP; General Hugh Shelton former US military; David Kilgour, former Canadian Secretary of State; Ingrid Betancourt; Raymond Tanter; Horst Teltschik; Colonel Wesley Martin, former US military; Senator Lucio Malan, Italian Senate; Alessandro Pagano MP; Antonio Razzi, Italian Senate; Gérard Deprez MEP; Ryszard Czarnecki, MEP; Tunne Kelam MEP; Lord Carlile, UK; Lord Clarke, UK; Lord Maginnis, UK; Lord Dholakia, UK

Vicious attacks on the BBC Persian Service: Maryam Rajavi’s strange diplomacy with the UK

Maryam Rajavi is a nervous woman. As European ministers line up to visit Iran to improve trade and cultural links, and her cult resorts to violence on the streets of a small French village to keep families away from their loved ones, she must feel the cold winds of isolation and opprobrium blowing around her cult HQ in Auvers-sur-Oise and is certainly watching with growing concern for her own security.

As a result, Rajavi has renewed her efforts to obtain a visa to visit the UK. (She wants to come to the UK because there is more chance that her Zionist sponsors will offer her protection from legal prosecutions than in France where her activities are still under judicial investigation.)

Her last visit to the UK was in 1996. After failing her mission to mend political links with western governments, the French had ordered Rajavi to return to Iraq. In order to save face she negotiated a trip to the UK for a public appearance. (Even then her visit was hidden behind the pretence that the audience were attending a music concert with the retired Iranian singer Marzieh.) Rajavi was given a few days visa only after British security services had obtained a written assurance from France that she would immediately be allowed to return there where she has political asylum. Maryam Rajavi did indeed immediately return to France from whence she packed her bags and went back to Iraq and only covertly returned to Auvers-sur-Oise just before the start of the American invasion of Iraq in 2003. In spite of her continued attempts to obtain a visa – a British peer raised the issue for her in the House of Lords – Maryam Rajavi remains persona non grata in the UK.

This has infuriated the notoriously bad tempered Rajavi whose reaction has been to bark at her intended hosts via a vicious campaign to demonise the BBC’s Farsi programme. Presumably Rajavi sees the BBC World Service as an earpiece of the FCO.

The attack began over a programme called Compass. The programme deliberately hosts controversial guests to prompt lively discussions. One particular combination included a former SAVAK (Shah’s repressive secret service) official at the time of the Shah and a former MEK terrorist who was in prison at that time. The programme asked ‘How effective was SAVAK?’ Enraged, Maryam Rajavi instigated a vicious attack on the BBC, which suddenly received an orchestrated rash of letters of complaint purporting to be from actual, named prisoners in Iran. This was ridiculed by critics of the MEK who pointed out that prisoners in Iran do not have access to satellite television and would not be able to write uncensored letters to London if only for security reasons. In any case, the vitriolic style of the letters is an indication that they come from the same few authors at the heart of the Rajavi Cult Empire in Europe. Staff at the BBC Persian Service were mystified.

Revealing herself to be supremely ignorant of UK politics and the current political atmosphere in relation to Iran, the next step was an astounding assault on credulity; a letter written to Prime Minister David Cameron supposedly from the residents of Camp Liberty complaining about the bias of the BBC. This concept is even more ridiculous than the prisoner campaign. The Farsi Commentariat were quick to point out that residents of Camp Liberty are living incommunicado as members of a cult and are therefore completely cut off from normal life. Living under strict gender apartheid, they are denied contact even with relatives inside the same camp, let alone their estranged families outside. Every bit of information they are given is strictly controlled and censored by the cult leaders – there is no such thing as access to external television, radio or print media in the camp. The idea that the MEK leaders asked brainwashed members to sign a letter which was written on their behalf is ludicrous in these conditions. Why ask? Just add their name to the letter. You don’t even need to inform them. Nobody will be able to ask them anyway because they are in a totally closed environment. A recent sham demonstration by Camp Liberty residents reflects how ludicrous this idea is. The residents of Camp Liberty held a demonstration against the Iran nuclear deal. Perhaps not a single resident has any idea what the deal was, but in any case they were ordered to hold placards written in English. But for whom? No media are allowed into the camp. Even the UN officials admit they have problems getting free access to the residents. Only the MEK websites published photographs of the sad scene.

Now, whether in response to the lack of response to her bizarre persuasion techniques, or whether stung by the ridicule of her critics, or whether she is genuinely out of touch with political reality, Maryam Rajavi’s cult websites are now awash with attacks on the British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. Surely it won’t be long before somebody points out to her that he is paid to work for British interests, not hers.

Maryam Rajavi’s desperation to escape justice in France has led her to some extraordinary lengths. If this is Rajavi’s best attempt to persuade the FCO to grant a visa it only reveals her own nervous trepidation.
