Mojahedin Agree to Leave Camp Ashraf

Relocating to a former US military base outside Baghdad

BBC: The leader of a group of Iranian exiles living in a camp outside the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has said 400 of its residents are preparing to relocate. The group's Paris-based leader, Maryam Rajavi, said the decision to leave Camp Ashraf was a "goodwill gesture". It ends a tense standoff with the Iraqi government, which has repeatedly vowed to close the 25-year-old camp. Earlier this week, Iraq and the UN agreed to resettle the camp's more than 3,000 residents. Ms Rajavi said the first group of exiles would leave the camp voluntarily "at the first opportunity" and relocate to a former US military base outside Baghdad, Camp Liberty >>>

Let's use the "humanitarian" excuse

by Sadegh Bozorgmehr on

Maybe if we threaten an impending Holocaust on Ashraf the State Department will delist the MEK and give them a free-hand to conduct attacks inside Iran. Should make the IRI dissappear soon.

What makes you think Europe wants to have them? My guess is no place will take them all. America  may twist enough arms to get various EU nations to take a few hundred per nation.

More likely they have to: disband; split and return to civilian life. The hosting nations will demand that before giving refuge. But my next bet is they will not stick by the deal. Rather attempt regrouping and rebuilding PMOI. 

Doing that is going to get them in trouble again. I just do not see a good future without massive psychological support for them. But at least they are out of Iraq or will be I hope.


Khebedin's point...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

is clear, I dont even have to read her comments to get to her point. I think she should tone down her praise of NP  though. For one thing there is a protocol not to acknowledge one's colleague in public domain, let alone praise her. Also people on this site might start talking.

And happy new year to Suri.

I don't agree with you

by Souri on

First of all, I think they will be safer out of Iran than inside. Second, I think that Iran would be safer as long as these individuals are out of Iran. Third I don't think even the IRI government would like to be dealing with them. And forth, as you said, many of them have left for Europe after having been freed in Iran. So what's the point to go to Iran first, if finally they will move to Europe? Then, let the US send them to Europe, right away. I think everybody will feel safer this way.


Dear  Souri  Pendar Neek

by Khebedin on

Dear  Souri  Pendar Neek is right. Your assumption , in case this was taken over by the Iranians, is not correct. We have seen many members of these cult who have been captured / or gone to Iran and now are free from any problem, some even having left Iran and living in Europe.

On the contrary, if this was left to the Iranains and they all were sent or deliverd to Iran, Iranian authorities had no choice to do what is most humane and would have been a task for them. If US had an iota of political wisdom, they would have suggested to the UN to return these group to Iran and expect a humane treatment monitored by the UN. But such is the outcome, when the intention is a wrong one. Pendare Neek is very right to say that the American have turned an Iranian problem to one of their own.  Another American mistake .


Their sad faith has not been decided or changed….

by Bavafa on

Untill their cult and their leadership has been dismantled and they are set free, preferably with a long and sustain psychotherapy.   Perhaps only then they can enjoy a normal life.

  Their leadership with the support of the West this time around need to stop using these sheep as a bait for their malicious scheme.

You Guessed It Correctly!

by G. Rahmanian on

That's exactly what the paid IR agents would want to happen to every Iranian that opposes the mass-murdering Islamist regime in Tehran! Masoud and Maryam Rajavi are only excuses for these paid mercenaries to get to the members of the organization. Every time there's a talk about MEK, they treat it as if the Rajavis are on trial.


an Iranian problem ?

by Souri on

Pendar Neek

How do you consider it as an "Iranian problem"?

And why?

Can you explain it?

Do you really think that the Iranian goverment should be in charge with this matter? And how do you think they will deal with this problem? By mass killing of the MKE? Or you want to see them all in IRI's prison?

Don't you think that we have already too many political prisoners?



Fox new Support for MEK???!!!!

by farzad53 on

This is really a sad ending for MEK that at the end after Humiliation of unholy alliance with Sadam now they have to get in bed with FOX and republican ....this is another chapter in their life that they can not erase.

No choice

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


MEK had no choice but to move. Iraq was going to force them out. Their 3000 troops are not match for the Iraqi army. Other posters who suggested fighting were signing their death warrant. 

Iraqi hate MEK almost as much as Iranians do. Their best future is to disbane and return to regular lives. But after 30 years of propaganda I don't know how they will be faring.

Agree to Leave

by Rostam - e - zaal on

These poor folks have been in that camp the majority of their  lives listening to propaganda and only one television station being fed their own one sided programs and not having a clue what is is going on around them. Now their leader sitting pretty in Paris, wearing designer clothes is dictatingwhat they aught to do. I dont believe they want to go any country. They wish to go to Western countries or North America. I am sure certain countries in Africa, South Pacific, The Atlantic or say the Falkland Islands would take them. I doubt very much they would go there. They wish to be able to keep demonstrating for their leader, who does not give interviews and plays the poor residents of Ashraf like a musical instrument. The most bizarre part of it for me is the fact that Iraq is a sovereign country, they should be able to do what they wish in their own country  and not be dictated to as these folks are doing. 


Would US ( or any other

by Khebedin on

Would US ( or any other country) be so stupid to take them?., . I don't think so.  A bunch of idiots who no one wants them nor can be trusted to do anything. They are the illigitimate children of  a criminal called Sadam who have lost their father. Only Israel may take them as they know how to use them.
