Zionist America’s favorite communist terrorists

American politicians have recently been lobbying to remove the MEK from a list of terrorist organizations. Last Tuesday, six Members of Congress lead by Bob Filner (D-CA) and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), both stallwart supporters of the Zionist state, signed a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urging that the State Department remove the far-left terrorist group from the US list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.  The other signers were: Ted Poe (R-TX), Judy Chu (D-CA), Edolphus Towns (D-NY), and Mike Coffman (R-CO).

This is all despite the fact, even according to the State Department, the MEK has engaged in “anti-Western activity,” in the past., and¬†“staged terrorist attacks inside Iran and killed several US military personnel and civilians.” ¬†The State Department’s information on the group also stated that the MEK is “cult-like” and that they “have the capacity to commit terrorist acts” around the world. ¬†Ex-MEK members have stated that¬†new members are forcibly ¬†indoctrinated in MEK ideology and revisionist Iranian history; members are also required to undertake a vow of “eternal divorce” and participate in weekly “ideological cleansings,” and children are reportedly separated from parents at a young age.

The leader of the MEK is Maryam Rajavi, who in addition to being a communist is (perhaps not surprisingly) a radical feminist. ¬†One of her writings calls “gender distinction” a sign of totalitarianism and religious fundamentalism.

Despite the MEK’s nefarious attributes, however, American¬†politicians (forgetting the failure of such policies in the past)¬†seem to be willing to extend a helping hand to this communist group. ¬†De-listing the MEK from the list of terrorist organizations would essentially permit the group to¬†receive¬†direct funding from the American government, and accelerate regime change in Iran. ¬†Rohrabacher, a hardline Zionist, stated that it didn’t matter that the MEK was willing to resort to violence, saying that, “backing people who fight against tyranny is also something the U.S. should be doing.” ¬†Rohrabacher, a critic of Hezbollah in Lebanon, seems to be bending over backwards to maintain a double standard. ¬†Hezbollah, according to the UN Office of Coordination for¬†Humanitarian¬†Affairs, was forced to admit that Hezbollah “boasts an extensive social development programme. The group currently operates at least four hospitals, 12 clinics, 12 schools and two agricultural centres that provide farmers with technical assistance and training. It also has an environmental department and an extensive social assistance programme.” ¬†Moreover, Hezbollah was supported by the majority of Lebanese, including Lebanese Christians. ¬†According to the Christian Science Monitor, over 80% of Christians supported Hezbollah. ¬†The MEK has little support outside its own internal apparatus, and can boast none of the services that Hezbollah has.

The Iranian reported that during the hearing, leaders of the designated foreign terrorist organization were not only permitted to testify, but permitted to counsel witnesses before the hearing.  Ali Safavi, a senior member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, was present, where he openly counseled witnesses before and during their testimony.  The hearing’s witnesses included three former U.S. officials who have actively participated in pro-MEK conferences, including former Attorney General Michael Mukasey.  Also present was Robert Filner, who according to GovTrack.us, is a life-long radical who was arrested in 1961 for disturbing the peace, and spent two months in jail.  Michael Mukasey even went as far ast to saying that MEK members should be allowed to resettle in the United States.

At a time when his nation of Iran was flanked by the secularist, communist Soviet Union and the secularist, materialist United States, the Iranian people chose to reject both, rallying under the cry “Neither East, nor West ‚Äď Islamic Republic!” ¬†Under the Islamic Republic of Iran, a the lofty ideals of the Iranian Revolution put into practice the resistance to the abject despair of liberal thought, and demonstrated that it is possible to maintain social order whilst establishing a government which is attentive to the needs of the masses.

It was not too long ago that Americans themselves feared communism. ¬†Even today, the controlled media continues to fabricate the concept of a “communist threat” in China or North Korea, all the while exporting revolution¬†themselves. ¬†Through their brazen support for the Iran by the MEK, the neoconservatives Trotskyite roots are showing once again, on display for the whole world to see.

    Twenty or so years ago, to support a communist organization like MEK, even against one of our enemies at the timel Islamic Republic of Iran would have been looked down upon as unthinkable and downright treason. But a lot can change in twenty years. The Neoconservative and Neoliberal ideologues in the US are afraid of their slowly but surely dwindling influence in Asia (and soon; Europe, Latin America and perhaps even in the US Homeland when American people, God-willing, rudely wake up from their slumber). In staying relevant, our two rivaling, but similar ideologues will do anything to keep hold of their power, even it meeans allying with communists at their convenience against a greater enemy (in this case, it is Iran as well the growing Islamic influence in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Turkey)
