Increased Threat from
The arrest of Maryam Rajavi in the NCRI headquarters in
Auvers sur Oise France accompanied by the discovery of many controversial
documents and followed by the self-immolations of several so-called
Mojahedin sympathisers along with the propagandist hunger strikes and the
hiring of over 25 lawyers in France, have signalled that Rajaviís cult has
entered into a new phase.
With Maryam Rajaviís release on bail today in Paris, this phase will move to
a new level.
One of the serious concerns in this respect is the intent of this cult to
physically eliminate its opponents in Europe as was revealed by the media.
We should bear in mind that although the Mojahedin are trying to limit the
scope of this news to cover only the 30 individuals who recently
participated in a meeting in Paris, the true number of those labelled by
this cult as working with the regime of Iran is well over hundreds and
includes many prominent members of Iranís opposition.
Mr Massoud Rajavi, who is currently in hiding, made an announcement on the
30 June, assuming the name of the Mojahedin organization, in which he
attempts to divert the accusations against him toward the Iranian regime and
to ignore all the revealed and still unexposed documents. He also dismisses
those who give evidence against him as working for the Iranian regime. Mr
Rajavi apparently does not recognise the rule of law and is attempting to
politicise his predicament.
However, if the number of people so accused by the Mojahedin is divided by
the period covered by this labelling, we would have to accept that the
Intelligence Ministry of Iran has been continuously over a number of years
recruiting one opponent or critic of this cult every twelve days. The
evidence for this statistic is available and clearly shows the current
tactics of Rajaviís system.
Mr Rajavi has pointed to Mr Mohammad Sobhani as such a person. In 2002,
Rajavi himself said in three announcements that Mr Sobhani had run away from
their camp in Iraq, that he was captured by Saddam Husseinís Intelligence
Service which imprisoned him in Abu Ghraib political prison and several
years later handed him over to the Iranian regime. Of course, Mr Rajavi did
not explain why any of this happened. Reliable reports show that during the
rule of Mr Rajaviís host (Saddam Hussein) at least fifty other individuals
suffered the same fate. This issue is currently under investigation by
several international bodies and agencies. Despite all these announcements
Mr Rajavi refused to co-operate in order to shed light on the real situation
of these individuals. The latest of his similar crimes was the arrest of two
of his followers in Syria and their transfer to Iran. Mr Rajavi as usual
cried foul but refused to say why he had sent them to Syria and why he
prevented the story from emerging for two months (up to the point at which
he was certain they had been transferred to Iran).
Mr Rajavi does not mention in his announcement the self-immolations in
Europe, but there is clear evidence that at least two of these so-called
Ďsympathisersí have been trained for terrorist operations in Iraq by Saddam
Husseinís Republican Guard and have been sent to Europe along with a few
hundred other such ĎFedayeení at the same time as Maryam Rajaviís move to
Paris. These new arrivals can be divided in to three groups:
Individuals with propaganda skills who can be of use in
lobbying political circles or whitewashing Rajavi in the media. These
people are limited in number and are mainly operating from London, Paris
and New York under the names of representatives or spokesperson, etc.
Individuals chosen from the body of the Mojahedinís armed
section in Iraq who are considered as members of Rajaviís Fedayeen. These
people have undergone intensive training by Saddamís Republican Guards and
are ready for suicide operations (for example self-immolations). It would
appear that these people were specifically chosen to eliminate the cultís
opposition in Europe and America.
Individuals expert in selecting and training people for
suicide operations. Some of these people have passed appropriate training
in Saddamís system and have years of experience in this field. Some are
responsible for training and motivating the suicide bombers in Iran. In
particular these people are being used for contacting Iranians and/or
ex-supporters. At this time, Rajaviís cult desperately wants to find
and use those Iranians who have a background in Europe or America so that
they can be introduced to the media or politicians as sympathisers rather
than as hard-core members.
In his announcement Mr Rajavi jokes and says that the
Mojahedin has a collective leadership. Obviously the frequent change of
lackeys or dollies cannot be taken as evidence of change of leadership of a
cult. Mr Rajavi categorically denies that the Mojahedin is a cult. Again,
recently revealed audio tapes of a telephone conference call between Rajavi
and his friends give evidence of the kinds of hysteria and submission of
heart soul and mind which are the signature of cult culture (a transcript of
the tape is on our website (Elucidation concerning the cult status of
listen to the tape on
Mr Rajavi in all innocence points out that the Al Tash camp in Iraq belonged
to Saddam Hussein and that he only handed Mojahedin dissidents over to the
Iraqi government. It was Saddamís agents who took them to this camp. That
time then, was a philanthropic period for Rajavi and Saddam. Our current
investigations concern the murders and torture in Ashraf camp (the main camp
of Rajaviís cult in Iraq) and Abu Ghraib political prison. (The joint prison
of Saddam and Rajavi.)
Mr Rajavi claims that Ďup to nowí no non-military person has been targeted
in their attacks. However documents of attacks by this cult against the
offices of Peywand Association, the families of political activists in
Europe, old women, and writers and journalists Ö. and also film of the
hooligans and Fedayeen of the cult attacking the employees of Iranian
embassies and Iranian Airline officials with lethal weapons (non firearms)
are readily available.
No comment need be made on Rajavi's claims toward the families and children
of Mojahedin members except to reiterate that in over two years of activity by Iran-Interlink
we now have a large body of evidence on this matter. In addition it must be
made clear that on the
subject of Rajavi's co-operation with Saddam in the massacre of Kurds and Shiites
in Iraq the available evidence cannot be exposed as there is a legal case
Mr Rajavi with his usual effrontery states that his military camps in Iraq
have always been open for investigation by independent bodies.
Iran-Interlink has piles of evidence to show the exact opposite of that. Not
only has Rajavi refused to accept the mediation of international human
rights organisations to facilitate the visits of families, but he asked
Saddam to refuse visas for the families of the prisoners in Mojahedin camps
in Iraq. His effrontery has reached the point whereby he claims that after
the downfall of Saddam, his breadwinner for the past twenty years in Iraq,
the people of Iraq have demonstrated in support of his cult. However it is
clear that the over ten million dollars cash found in their bases in Paris
could not be mistaken for money donated to this cult by the public of Iraq.
These hundred dollar bills have traceable serial numbers.
Finally, although Mr Rajavi has rejected the findings of the French police
that the Mojahedin cult were planning to destroy their opponents in Europe
and has called it a joke, we should emphasise the exposure of the move of
operational teams from Iraq to Europe under the name of sympathisers,
passers-by, refugees, tourists, etc. We will hold Mr and Mrs Rajavi
accountable for any physical or financial damage to any individual who has
left this cult (under the name of the Mojahedin, NCRI or other pseudonym) at
any time and for any reason, and who has revealed information about them.
We should inform those responsible for public safety that according to these
recent revelations, the order to escalate the level of violence of the
operations in Europe (including suicide operations) has already reached
parts of the terrorist network of this cult.
