The BBC television program on the Communist MEK
Paul Sheldon Foote
The BBC's January 17, 2007 television program on the Iranian Communist MEK (MKO, PMOI, NCRI, Rajavi Cult, Pol Pot of Iran) included an interview with Lawrence Wilkerson, a top aide to former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Wilkerson revealed that the State Department supported a plan to disband the Iranian communist cult at Camp Ashraf, Iraq. However, Vice President Dick Cheney's office rejected the plan. The television program included also an interview with Congressman Bob Filner (Democrat-California and son of a Communist Party candidate for Congress) who supports this communist cult.
Hopefully, the American media will follow the lead of the BBC and examine in depth why a Republican Vice President supports a communist ult. Unfortunately, this is not the first time in American history that American political leaders have supported communist monsters. For example, there were members of the American government who supported Pol Pot in Cambodia. America has some responsibility for the killing fields of Cambodia. Some Iranians refer to Masoud Rajavi as the Pol Pot of Iran.
Americans need to continue to vote out of office the neo-conservatives (neo-Trotskyites) in the Democratic and Republican parties who support communist cults.
The following is the Comment of Paul Sheldon Foote on the group
The Iranian Communist MEK (MKO, PMOI, NCRI, Rajavi Cult, Pol Pot of Iran) has a long history of terrorism. In the 1970's in Iran, the MEK murdered American military officers and Rockwell International employees. During the American hostage crisis, to show that the MEK is more anti-Western than the Islamic leaders, the MEK clamored for the murder of the American hostages at the American Embassy in Tehran. In 1991, these Saddam Hussein-supported terrorists committed major war atrocities against Kurdish and other Iraqi civilians. Around the world, the MEK has committed terrorist acts, even in New York City.
While this BBC segment contained an interview with Congressman Bob Filner (Democrat-California and son of a Communist Party candidate for Congress), viewers need to know that hundreds of members of Congress (including Republicans) have supported the MEK or have accepted political campaign contributions from MEK supporters. While this segment was a good, brief introduction to the MEK, BBC needs to go into more depth in future segments about the real reasons why many neo-conservatives (neo-Trotskyites), the Iran Policy Committee (staffed by a former CIA employee and former American military officers), and so many members of Congress have betrayed America by supporting this evil communist cult.
