Pending Human Rights Disaster
has been reported that in the most recent military political gathering of
the Mojahedin, Massoud Rajavi told his followers 'we have no choice except
to attack Iran with whatever we have'.
In the meeting, Maryam Rajavi, his wife, stressed that this time, unlike during the Gulf war, Rajavi would not remain in Iraq. He must leave Iraq to preserve himself in order to continue the revolution. Maryam implied that Switzerland would be a good base for Rajavi.
Reportedly, the Mojahedin are presently plying the UNHCR in Iraq to have a selective 200-300 members accepted as refugees to be sent to Europe in order to prepare for Rajavi's relocation.
The reality behind this situation is that, as happened twice before, 20th June 1981 and the Forough-e Javidan (Eternal Light) operation of 1988, Rajavi needs to create another bloodbath in order to get out of his present impasse.
Rajavi's reasoning is manifold:
This is a pending human rights disaster. As many as 5,000 Mojahedin members could be involved in this attack. It is not known how many will be killed or injured on both sides.
Whatever agreement Massoud Rajavi and Saddam Hussein come to about how they use their forces, and where or when Rajavi will go or stay, is not our concern. Our concern is the deliberate intention to sacrifice thousands of people in an attempt to get out of their political impasse. Needless to say, anyone who refuses to go to war will, as others have before them, be handed over to the Iraqi authorities, who will charge them with spying for Iran and punish them accordingly…
We urge all international organisations concerned with human rights and security to intervene and investigate the situation, and to put pressure on Iraq to prevent this bloodshed.
