Double standards policy: terrorists flee Iraq to Europe on a US plane
On the morning of August 25, a US plane took members of the OMIIN (Organization of the Mojaheds of the Iranian People) group, recognized as terrorist in Iran and Iraq, from Iraq. Supposedly, the plane was supposed to deliver Iranian terrorists to Albania. This is the Iranian news agency FARS.
There were about 100 people on board, including supporters of Masood Rajawi, whom Tehran regards as the leader of the OMIN. According to the agency, most of the members of this terrorist group are wanted by Interpol.
It is reported that Rajavi himself could be on board the aircraft, but this information has not been officially confirmed. According to the source of the publication, the flight was intended only for members of the group, others were not taken on board. It is reported that the removal of terrorists was coordinated by the UN Commissariat for Refugees. “Behind the scenes of this operation, joint actions of the American military and advisers from Saudi Arabia are traced,” the report says.
Members of the group, who are known to be brutally tortured over their “changed” supporters, were under arrest warrants issued by the Iraqi government, therefore, according to the source, they most likely left Iraqi territory with forged documents.
Perhaps the reason for the escape was the fact that some Islamist groups in Iraq declared Rajavi and his supporters jihad for the crimes that the OMIN committed against the Iraqi people during the time of Saddam Hussein.
The publication lists terrorists who probably were on a US-chartered plane.
The organization of the Mujahideen of the Iranian people (OMIN, Mojahedin-e Hulk) is an Iranian left-wing organization leading the fight against the leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Recognized as a terrorist organization in Iran and Iraq. In 2009, the European Union removed the OMIN from the list of terrorist organizations, and in 2012, the United States followed their example.
The MEKE was organized in 1965 by students of Tehran University who were dissatisfied with the Shah's regime. The goal of the organization was to create a socialist republic in Iran, something like the Persian version of communism, which the members of the group called Touchism.
Beginning in 1970, the OMIN has carried out a number of high-profile terrorist attacks against the Shah regime. Initially, the organization welcomed the 1979 Islamic Revolution of the year and the seizure of the US embassy in Tehran, but soon the Mujahideen returned to terrorist activities, went into opposition to the Ayatollah regime and resumed armed struggle.
In 1981, as a result of an explosion organized by the OMIN in the office of the Prime Minister, the President and Prime Minister of Iran were killed. After that, the Iranian authorities launched a merciless terror against members of the OMIN, as a result of which more than 20 thousand members of the organization were arrested or executed. Suffering significant losses, the Mujahideen first moved to France, and in 1986 to Iraq, becoming a kind of fifth column during the bloody Iran-Iraq war. Expecting to use the OMIN as a ram against the Iranian forces, the Iraqi authorities placed the Mujahideen on the Iran-Iraq border at fortified military bases with heavy armored vehicles, artillery, tanks and helicopters.
In 1992, the OMIN terrorists attacked Iranian embassies in the 13 countries of the world. In 2003, during the invasion of the United States and Great Britain into Iraq, the Momin detachments were disarmed by the coalition forces, and the Mujahideen were detained where they were until recently. According to some reports from Human Rights Watch, the OMIN is responsible for the cruel torture of members of their organization suspected of treason.
After the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime, information appeared in the media that the United States took the MOM troops based in Iraq under its care, although it deprived them of heavy weapons. Upon learning of this, Tehran accused the United States of pursuing a policy of double standards in the fight against international terrorism and of the fact that the United States divided terrorists into good and bad, using "good" to achieve its own geopolitical goals. Tehran’s hopes that during the Iraq campaign the United States would completely disarm and expel the OMIN militants from Iraq or transfer them to Iran, were not justified.
On the contrary, Tehran suspects that the United States is ready to use the adjusted military terrorist infrastructure of the Mujahideen to put pressure on Iran.
Considered the leader of the Organization of the Mujahideen of the Iranian people, 68-year-old Masood Rajawi joined the MEK while still a student at Tehran University, and quickly became the leader of the movement. In 1971, he was arrested by the Shah's secret police SAVAK and sentenced to death, which, under pressure from the world community, was replaced with a life sentence. Rajavi was released only after the Islamic anti-Shah revolution of 1979. In 1980, the leader of the OMIN decided to run for the presidency of Iran, but Ayatollah Khomeini vetoed his candidacy. After that, Rajavi again embarked on the path of an armed "partisan" struggle, now with the goal of overthrowing the mullahs regime and establishing an Islamic socialist republic in Iran. Recently, most of the members of the OMIN have been hiding in the territory of neighboring Iraq, where they were secretly fed by the USA as a possible means in the war against Iran, and Rajavi himself has not heard anything since 2003.
According to experts, the actions of the United States to export members of the OMIN to Albania instead of giving them out to Iran is an attempt to flood the European countries with Islamic terrorists.
“Well, who is supplying terrorists to Europe?” One of the users of social networks rhetorically asks.
“No wonder! Americans already insolently, not hiding, support terrorists! Yes, with the support of the UN! ”- Outraged another blogger.
