Yesterday in a nonbinding resolution the European Parliament urged United Sates and also the Unite Nations to immediately provide help to the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, an Iranian opposition group based in Iraq.
I could not agree more with this resolution. Ever since the U.S. military turned over the protection of Camp Ashraf, where those hapless three thousand plus Iranians are housed, to the government in Baghdad, their lives have been put in grave jeopardy.
However, the nonbinding resolution goes further and asks U.S. to take MKO off its list of terrorist organizations as well.
I could not disagree more with this section of the resolution. More than anything else, the members of the MKO need cult deprogrammers. And their leaders need to be investigated by ICC.
This game of using those needy Iranians caged up in an Iraqi camp as bargaining chip with IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic, is despicable and needs to stop. Helping them to rejoin the society in the sane world is the only right thing to do.
