Con Coughlin, The Telegraph, Iran News
If you missed the significance of this story, let’s take it in three parts:
1) FOR IRANIAN PEOPLE:
If you are Iranian you already know that the MEK is not a “leading dissident” group – The MEK is universally hated by Iranians and they acted as Saddam’s private army and carried out chemical weapons attacks against Iran and Iraqi-Kurds in the 1980s (all of this is well-known). This is not news to Iranians or Iraqi-Kurds. For Iranians, it is significant because one can see clear evidence that the British media establishment embraces terror groups universally hated by Iranians, while trying to pass these groups off to the public as bona fide organizations, as amply evidenced by Con Coughlin’s article in the Telegraph relying on information from the MEK, a group that is also on the U.S.’s terror watch list; the Telegraph does not even bother to point these facts out in their article or to mention that the MEK assisted Saddam with chemical attacks.
2) FOR BRITISH PEOPLE:
Now that you have seen this story, you can confidently tell your families, friends and coworkers that Britain’s organs of power — including major media institutions like the Telegraph — are under the domination of Zionists which have gone so far as to embrace the very terror group that assisted Saddam in his chemical weapons attacks in the 1980s against Iran and Iraqi-Kurds. The Telegraph article even parrots Israel’s talking points in exaggerating that Iran is engaging in a “huge expansion” of its nuclear program while citing a source that carried out chemical attacks on behalf of Saddam Hussein! This means that Britain is occupied by the Zionists. They control your newspapers and they ‘Zionize’ the news they feed you. If you are British, you are not free: The Zionists have infiltrated your country, feed you their talking points as news, and seek to hype yet another war even after the wars with Iraq and Afghanistan that have left hundreds of thousands dead and wounded.
3) FOR THE TELEGRAPH:
Con Coughlin’s article – and the Telegraph’s manipulation of facts — means that the Telegraph is totally unreliable and worthless to the public as a source of news.
- Editors Note: It appears that this is not a serious investigation and the US is publicizing it to make it appear as if they have done something. Don’t expect charges. But if the average citizen did this, they would be arrested and prosecuted. It shows that support of this terror group is official US policy.
By Michael Isikoff – National investigative correspondent
Speaking firms representing ex-FBI Director Louis Freeh and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Hugh Shelton have received federal subpoenas as part of an expanding investigation into the source of payments to former top government officials who have publicly advocated removing an Iranian dissident group from the State Department list of terrorist groups, three sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News.
The investigation, being conducted by the Treasury Department, is focused on whether the former officials may have received funding, directly or indirectly, from the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, or MEK, thereby violating longstanding federal law barring financial dealings with terrorist groups. The sources, all of whom spoke on condition of anonymity, said that speaking fees given to the former officials total hundreds of thousands of dollars.

- Let’s not pretend that the Israelis are not supporting the MEK terror group when the Los Angeles Jewish Journal admits the obvious pro-Israeli support for the MEK. These are crimes Iranians should not forgive or forget. The US government obviously believes it is okay for Israelis to support terrorist groups on US soil.
Anita Rezainejad, daughter of electrical engineering student Dariush Rezai-nejad who was killed by Apartheid Israel and its band of terrorist Mojahedeen e Khalgh stooges. Obviously it does not take skill for Iranians to do this to Israelis, but we are are calling for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel until it complies with international law. http://www.bdsmovement.net/
