Iran’s Habilian Association has documented the blood-stained history of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO/PMOI) since its inception as a Marxist-oriented student-group-turned-terrorist-organization during the Pahlavi Dynasty era of the 1960s and 1970s. In light of the recent decision of the Hillary Clinton-led American State Department to remove the MEK from a list of groups recognized by the United States Government as International Terrorist Organizations, the Association again solicited the opinions of Mark Dankof in this burgeoning controversy. What is behind this move? What are the global implications yet to unfold?
Habilian Association: Mr. Dankof, what is your opinion of this decision?
Mark Dankof: It is a horrible, reprehensible decision. It is also a decision entirely predictable, given the actions of the Zionist War Party in making it happen. I discussed that in my last chat with you fine folks. The subject also came up briefly in my last conversation with Press TV last week.
Habilian Association: Will this decision worsen American-Iranian relations?
Mark Dankof: Absolutely. But that is the Master Plan of the International Bankers; the Zionist War Party led by Netanyahu and an American Congress once referred to by Pat Buchanan as “Zionist Occupied Territory“; a Corporate Media in this country owned lock-stock-and-barrel by these interests; and last, but not least, the Multinational Energy Consortiums.
It is because of these forces that the United States and the West are already at war with Iran, a totally immoral and illegitimate endeavor. The economic sanctions directed at Iran’s banks and its energy sector are draconian. Its airspace continues to be violated from time to time. Covert black operations in Iranian Azerbaijan, Khuzestan Province, and Balochistan Province, have the fingerprints of Israel, the United States, and Britain all over them. The Washington Post admits to a supposedly “unexplained five-fold increase” in bomb blasts in Iran in the last two years, at military depots, nuclear plants, and energy related pipelines. And then there are the assassinations of the Iranian nuclear scientists in recent years. It is an open secret that the MEK/MKO/PMOI has been working as a surrogate black operational force with Israel’s Mossad in these unsavory, criminal efforts. Plausible deniability of knowledge or involvement in these international crimes on the part of the American Administration simply cannot be maintained. Even Newsweek smugly offers virtual confirmation that this is what the game involves, even in offering its Zionist approval of such terrorist plots and operations.
Dr. Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest, and Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State-Fullerton University, remain as two trustworthy sources of inside information for the American public on what is going on with Israeli and American utilization of the MEK. It is a sordid and increasingly tragic business. We are likely to see just how evil all of this is in the next year.
And make no mistake about it. The RAND Corporation report on the MEK is still solid. They are a terrorist organization, a totalitarian cult for indoctrinated members, led by clinically evil people.
The signals being sent by the American Government on this are clear. Terrorist organizations are fine, as long as their criminal activities are being conducted by the Zionist State of Israel and on behalf of the other core constituencies we have already mentioned which drive American foreign policy.
Take al-Qaeda, for instance. The United States allegedly invaded Afghanistan to destroy this Islamic militant organization held responsible for the events in New York on September 11, 2001. There are two problems with this. First, how can al-Qaeda be an implacable foe of the United States in Afghanistan, while being in alliance with American/NATO/Israeli operations in Libya, and now Syria? In the case of Syria, it is obvious that the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) States are recruiting foreign mercenaries and supplying arms and cash in trying to overthrow an Alawite/Shiite regime and replacing it with a Sunni-oriented one. The endgame here is to further isolate Iran and to set the table for coming military operations against Tehran. If the so-called Free Syria Army (FSA), or other similar Sunni black operational groups with clear al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood connections succeed in overthrowing the Assad regime in Damascus, Iran would lose its strongest supporter in the Arab world. The Shiite Crescent of Iran-Syria-Hezbollah would be severely damaged. The stage would be set for the deployment of American/NATO and Israeli military forces in that country.
The second problem is this: I and many others believe that Israel was behind the 9-11 attacks in New York. I shared this belief and the reasons for it, with Kourosh Ziabari of the Fars News Agency recently.
Israel’s history of involvement in False Flag operations is critically important. Look at the Lavon Affair of the 1950s; the involvement of the Meyer Lansky crime syndicate’s Cuban connections in the Kennedy Assassination; the role of Operation Cyanide in Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty on June 8th, 1967; and now, in my opinion, 9-11. When you add to this their history of stealing the United States blind in espionage operations, ranging from purloining American nuclear materials at the NUMEC plant in Apollo, Pennsylvania to the PROMIS-engineered theft of American nuclear technology at Los Alamos and the Pollard/AIPAC spy cases, the pattern is obvious.
A key question then, is how all of this relates to the relationship of American Neo-Conservatives and the Israeli Mossad with the MEK. An organization called the Iran Policy Committee is at the intersection of this relationship.
This issue is especially relevant in unraveling why the United States Central Command would have been providing secret military training to MEK operatives at a secret location in Nevada as documented by Seymour Hersh of The New Yorker. First, Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth and I postulate that these MEK operatives were a part of some of the aforementioned MEK terror operations in Iran being directed by the Israeli Mossad.
But there may be an even darker future angle to this story. Given Israel’s history of False Flag Operations directed against the United States, what would prevent them from utilizing the MEK in an operation against American interests abroad, or in the continental United States itself, in something falsely pinned to Tehran? This would be the quintessential “catastrophic and catalyzing event–like Pearl Harbor” to get the American public behind the launching of a preemptive war with Iran, the war Netanyahu and his Eretz Yisrael crowd desperately want, the war polls indicate would not presently be supported by an American electorate disenchanted with perpetual American military involvement in Central Asia and the Middle East. Reading the Israeli-driven Project for the New American Century (PNAC) releases of 1996 and 2000 on using the American military as a perpetual Janissary force for the Zionist State, in conjunction with Robert Stinnett’s book on FDR and Pearl Harbor entitled, “Day of Deceit,” and Pat Buchanan’s review of Herbert Hoover’s diary on FDR and Pearl Harbor, should contextualize how ominous the possibilities are for an Israeli/MEK plot to launch World War III.
Habilian Association: Elements in the United States seem to be selling the idea of such a war as essential to America’s national security interest. How do you react to that notion?
Mark Dankof: That notion is idiotic. In the case of Iraq, we invaded that country allegedly because of Saddam Hussein’s possession of “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” That charge was transparently fraudulent. Thousands of American dead and trillions of dollars later, we can be less than proud of having killed over 600,000 Iraqis and displacing 2 million others. In Afghanistan, we have killed thousands of Afghanis, and have spent about a trillion dollars. For what? Absolutely nothing. Afghanistan is proving once again to be the Graveyard of Empires, as the recent success of the Taliban asymmetrical attacks has demonstrated. The loss of the 6 Marine Corps Harrier jets the other day was the greatest single day loss of American aircraft since the Vietnam debacle. The subsequent suspension of our military cooperation and training effort in Afghanistan because of the proliferation of Green On Blue attacks is the tipping point. In both of these countries, the United States is running out of manpower and money as its ill-fated occupation and the inability to stabilize the political situation in either venue is crystal clear. We are arrogant enough that we failed to learn the lessons of the British and Soviet Empires. Now we shall pay the price.
What we are doing to Libya and Syria is self-evident. And when it comes to Iran, a signatory to the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the United States is perilously close to joining an overt Israeli preemptive military campaign against Tehran, even as Israel is a non-signatory to the NPT and is the chief nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons power in the region, even as Israel continues its brutal occupation of Palestine and Gaza, and demonstrates its ongoing criminal character through time with stunts like the Rachel Corrie murder and the Mavi Marmara incident. This is all impending despite the fact that our support of the Zionist Enterprise is draining this country financially, politically, and morally. We are becoming universally hated around the world because of these policies, even as our domestic economic situation continues to plummet.
The $17 trillion dollar on-line national debt is accompanied by a $222 trillion dollar unfunded liability for Social Security and Medicare. We have an actual unemployment rate of 22% in this country. The American Dollar’s status as the reserve currency of the globe is imperiled by this war spending, the foreign borrowing, and the Federal Reserve Board’s fiat money printing press. What would a regional military escalation in the Middle East achieve for the United States in this context, especially with credible threats of Russian and Chinese retaliation for such recklessness?
And the real bottom line is this: Iran represents no military threat to the United States. It has invaded no one else in centuries. If Zionist Talmudic racial supremacy theories, the crackpot eschatology of the Scofield Reference Bible Dispensationalist Christian Right, and the global banking system of the New World Order ceased to be the basis for our foreign policy stance with Tehran, we might well discover that whatever our differences with the present regime, a workable relationship and mutual respect can be restored.
In this regard, the latest actions of the United States Senate to pass a resolution which seems to employ Netanyahu’s Red Line in the Sand on Iranian nuclear technology is deemed especially irresponsible. In the first place, someone needs to tell these idiots that the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) gives the force of international law to Tehran’s legitimate insistence that it can enrich uranium up to 20%. The idea of people like John McCain, Joseph Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham that we should be attacking Iran for merely exercising its rights under international law is absolutely simian. Second, with the overt threats of the Zionist War Party to begin a Third World War, Iran might well be forgiven for a future decision to obtain a nuclear weapon.
One could actually argue that it would stabilize the situation in the Middle East, especially if the United States Senate understood that Israel is the chief threat to regional peace in that part of the world, and arguably to global peace with people like Avigdor Lieberman in the Likud government. An especially chilling prospect to me is that the Likud regime and the Temple Mount crowd might use a war with Iran as a pretext not simply to achieve the Eretz Yisrael dream of expanding the modern Zionist State’s borders from the Nile to the Tigris and Euphrates, but to step up policies of racial genocide against Palestinians specifically, and Arabs generally. Why? Pat Buchanan’s latest book, Suicide of a Superpower, demonstrates that the greatest threat to the Zionist State is demographic in nature, not military.
The birth rate differentials guarantee numerical minority status for Jews in Palestine, minus a catastrophic event to reduce the population of their perceived adversaries. Would a war with Iran be the pretext for a Final Solution for goyim in Palestine, and between the Nile and the Tigris and Euphrates? Think about that one for a while and one might lose some sleep this evening.
Habilian Association: Where is American public opinion on all of this?
Mark Dankof: The American public is too stupid to even have an opinion in these matters. Despite Elizabeth Rubin’s article on the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) in the New York Times op-ed of August 13th, 2011 entitled, “An Iranian Cult and its American Friends,” and her earlier July 13th, 2003 essay, “The Cult of Rajavi,” not one American in one hundred could even identify this organization or anything about its history. And Rubin is clearly tripping over herself not to state what is abundantly obvious to anyone who examines the list of American politicians and national security figures who have been illegally taking MEK money in exchange for successful PR efforts to have them delisted and legitimized. They are all working at the behest of the Israeli Lobby in the United States and the Israeli intelligence community interwoven in the darkest corners of the American national security establishment.
That the government of the United States is involved with these murderers, both the MEK and the Israeli regime, and that these relationships threaten what remains of the American Republic, not to mention the planet’s innocent globally, is of no consequence to the average American citizen. He or she is far more upset at the $150 million dollars that changed hands last night when the Green Bay Packers were robbed of victory over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL Monday Night Football game because of incompetent officiating by replacement referees. It is of paramount importance to such people that the dispute between the league’s owners and the Officials Union be resolved, in order that competent officiating be restored to the Empire’s gridiron ritual for the masses on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights.
With such priorities, who can be made to care that a foreign government and its Lobby are buying American elections, corrupting our news media, and rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of yet another War for Israel and Global International Capital?
This is where it is. It is grim.
And the nature of the demonstrations today in New York against President Ahmadinejad’s presence at the UN tell the tale of the tape. The MEK alliance with Israel was up front and center. Can one American in ten thousand understand what this means, or where it is leading? I think not.
