Mark Dankof Interview with the Habilian Association: On Israel, the MEK, and Iran

Mark Dankof: "The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq: The Intersection of the CIA-Mossad-Saudi Nexus Against Iran"

The Habilian Association of Iran talks to American conservative and Taft-Buchanan Republican Mark Dankof about Israel, American foreign policy in the Middle East and Asia, and the role of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO/PMOI) in both.  A past Republican Party District Chairman in Seattle, Washington; U. S. Senate candidate in Delaware in 2000 for Howard Phillips’s Constitution Party; and radio voice in recent years with Lebanese-American Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, Dankof also serves as a Lutheran clergyman in San Antonio, Texas and theological graduate student.  His last academic degree’s thesis will deal with the subject of Christian Zionism and the latter’s role in shaping a pro-Israel American foreign policy.  Mr. Dankof’s recent appearances on Iran’s Press TV are augmented by his opinion-editorials, which include, “The Red Ladies:  Sara Flounders and Debra Sweet,” “Mark Dankof’s Final Word on Michael Collins Piper’s ‘Final Judgment’ on Israel and the Assassination of JFK,” “The Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal:  Straight out of the McCollum Memorandum and the FDR Playbook for War,” “2012 Options for The Real Right:  But is it Too Late? ,” and “Rapture Rick Perry of Texas:  Israel’s Stealth GOP Presidential Candidate?

Habilian AssociationTell us about Intelligence collaboration between the MKO and the Israeli Mossad over Iran’s nuclear case.

Mark Dankof:  Information from non-classified sources is circumstantial but overwhelmingly strong.  Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton, probably the leading authoritative source in the United States on the MEK, and its presently functional relationship with the Israeli Mossad and elements in the American intelligence community, has publicly stated via his own sources that the MEK is the leading tool of Israeli intelligence and American Neo-Conservatives in the latter’s espionage agencies in launching acts of destablization and violence directed at Iran’s current government and conducted illegally within Iranian borders.  Foote identifies the PJAK, the offshoot of the Kurdish separatist PKK, and the Jundallah, as the other elements in this dangerous game.  The MEK’s fingerprints in Tehran are joined by what seems to be a cooperative relationship with PJAK directed against the Iranian government in efforts launched from northeast Iraq and the Qandil Mountains and directed against Iranian Azerbaijan.  And suspicious terror activities in Khuzestan and Diyala Provinces in recent years seem to be augmented by bomb blasts and terror killings in Balochistan Province in Iran where it appears that the MEK’s partner-in-crime is the Jundallah based in Pakistan.  But again, the Hidden Hand is comprised of the obvious, bigger ultimate players and assets.  The increase in PKK attacks on Turkey since May 2009 coincides exactly with the corresponding time frames of the Turkish government’s public beefs with Israel over the Mavi Marmara shoot-up and other formal Erdogan government protests against the actions of the Netanyahu regime in Gaza and elsewhere.  What does this tell any of us?  But for the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA, the British MI6, and their respective Commanders-in-Chief, the operative concept is “plausible deniability.”

     Mainstream American governmental and media sources confirm publicly that the MEK is the source of the information being used by pro-Israeli American Neo-Conservatives to argue for a military attack on Iran to preemptively strike the latter’s alleged weaponized nuclear program and its suppposed desire to use it against Israel.  It is noteworthy that this “information” contradicts the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report prepared by the 16 intelligence agencies of the American national security establishment regarding Iran and its nuclear program.  Worse yet, there have been repeated allegations in the international press corroborated by Israel’s critics in the American intelligence community that these MEK-generated reports and the lies in them being repeated incessantly by every War Party news agency from CNN to Fox News, World Net Daily, The Weekly Standard, NewsMax, and National Review, are in fact nothing more than the Israeli government’s brokering of deliberate agitation-propaganda to the voluminously gullible and ignorant consumers of these well-packaged charades which employ the MEK as the broker.  I believe Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest and Buchanan’s The American Conservative, and former CIA station chief in a couple of different places over the years, is among those making this charge.  In essence, it would appear to be the case beyond a shadow of a doubt that the MEK is playing the same Judas Goat role for the American and Israeli intelligence establishments that the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and Ahmad Chalabi did with their brokered nonsense before the last American invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”  This is a critical angle to this present story involving the MEK.  Why should the people of the United States and honest policy makers in Washington (all 10 of them?) now believe sources on Iran in 2011 with every motive for lying and a past record of doing so, especially in the last ten years?

     After the last assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran, Newsweek magazine all but confirmed the role of the Mossad and the MEK in that murder (and the previous episodes as well).  The coverage was preposterously positive regarding these killings.  To put into perspective just how this ruthless game is played, your readers may find it interesting that when the late Sidney Harman owned Newsweek, his wife was California Democratic Congressman Jane Harman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.  According to Pat Buchanan, Mrs. Harman was overheard on an American National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap assuring some Israelis at the other end of the conversation that she would use her considerable and covert influence on Capitol Hill to have American prosecutors drop their espionage case against Weissman and Rosen of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for illegally obtaining classified National Security Council (NSC) documents on Iran from one Larry Franklin, so-called NSC expert on Iran.  This is just one example of how American financial, political, and media power always seems to intersect when it comes to the subject of Israel.  And since Israel and the MEK are now full business partners in directing their animus at Iran, the MEK will draw an increasingly free pass in the American media and government, as long as they are doing the Mossad and Israeli Lobby’s bidding.

     All of this of course, increases the moral bankruptcy of this policy mix exponentially, when considered in conjunction with the clearly established fact that Israel is the weaponized nuclear monolith of the Middle East; has never and presumably will never submit to any form of international inspection of its nuclear program, not to mention its known stockpile of every biological and chemical warfare agent known to humanity; while the Zionist State’s policies in Occupied Territories and Gaza, as evidenced by its military assault on the civilian Mavi Marmara humanitarian flotilla in international waters in May of 2009, and the earlier Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, are the acts of an increasingly desperate entity led by a criminal cabal of sociopaths.  If the United States is worrying about nuclear weapons in the hands of the wrong people, it should start with taking a hard look at our leading “ally” in the region.  But the money trail will keep that from ever happening.  . . .

Habilian Association: What do you know about further Israeli support for Mujahedin-e Khalq, I mean financially, logistically…?

Mark DankofOne presumes that the Israeli and American money trails going to and from the MEK are closely guarded black-operational intelligence secrets not necessarily even known in details and numbers by the denizens of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.  Or shall we say, at least not known to anyone on those Committees of Alleged Oversight not in the back political and financial pocket of the Israeli Lobby.  That in and of itself, raises a related issue—the amount of PAC money going into American elections from approximately 30 PACS known to have direct or disguised links to the Israeli monolith in this country, as chronicled by Janet McMahon and Hugh Galford of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).

     One recent news article is most suggestive, however.  That is Elizabeth Rubin’s New York Times op-ed of August 13th, “An Iranian Cult and its American Friends.”

     This article, in the most Corporate Establishment, pro-Zionist newspaper in America (along with The Washington Post), underscores that the MEK is exactly what the Habilian Association, Mark Dankof, Ed Blanche of The Middle East desk in Beirut, and the RAND Corporation say it is:  a totalitarian cult which not only possesses a warped “Islamic-Marxist” ideology that is inherently contradictory, but is led by Miryam and Masoud Rajavi in a fashion reminiscent of that which governed the Reverend Jim Jones’ leadership of his demonic religious cult at Jonestown a generation ago in Guyana.  Even more significantly, the Elizabeth Rubin expose provides a laundry list of people in the American military, intelligence, and political establishments who are fraudulently working to have the MEK removed from the State Department terrorist organization list and subsequently legitimized.  This would be bad enough, but they are doing it for money—plenty of it, to the tune of $25,000 to $50,000 a speaking engagement on the MEK’s behalf.  (see the excellent RAND Corporation report on the MEK at RAND_MG871 MEK PAPER )

     Most critically, Rubin’s essay is potent for what it doesn’t say, and is patently obvious to anyone familiar with the subject:  These paid American denizens of pro-MEK activities and plans have Israel’s fingerprints all over them.  The names in her article overlap with the Israeli oriented think tanks Inside the Beltway, and the Israeli money on Capitol Hill documented by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).  One does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on here.  This is ultimately the Israeli Lobby and the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman at work for apocalyptically nefarious purposes.

     The Elizabeth Rubin New York Times expose also mentions the “millions” at the disposal of the MEK for its current public relations campaign in the United States, using these bought-and-paid for players in the American establishment.  It begs the question:  Where do Miryam and Masoud Rajivi and the MEK get this kind of money?  On what basis does Elizabeth Rubin cite the ambiguous but potent term “millions” to describe their financial power?  How many “millions” are we talking about specifically?  And what rag-tag “Islamic-Marxist” cult presently camped out in Paris and Camp Ashraf can have “millions” to dispense on political hired guns in America without major outside sources of funding?  And who are these outside sources of this kind of cash?  Oil and banking come to mind as possible places to look.  Beyond that, one doesn’t have to look too much further to find Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Israel Lobby in the United States, and international oil consortiums, as the chief targets of suspicions as to who and what really constitutes the force behind the attempted renovation of the MEK’s image and fortunes in the West.

     Rubin’s New York Times piece of August 13th is also noteworthy for what it doesn’t mention or explain:  The MEK’s most well-heeled and connected American power broker is the Iran Policy Committee of Dr. Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University, his colleague Clair Lopez of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the assortment of Israeli oriented think tanks and individuals who shadow the Iran Policy Committee, including the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) strongly linked to Dr. Tanter.  This picture is abundantly clear, despite the reticence of The New York Times, at least to this point, to cover the real players and angles in the story.

Dr. Raymond Tanter: The Intersection of Georgetown University, the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI, and the Israeli-influenced WINEP

     Perhaps the most spicy and inflammable aspect of the story of Dr. Raymond Tanter, Clair Lopez, and the Iran Policy Committee involves the explosive divorce of Raymond Tanter from his ex-wife, Constance Tanter.  Mrs. Tanter alleges a most incredible tale of international intrigue that resulted in the targeted demise of her marriage, career, and personal life, up to and including the specific charge that at the direction of her ex-husband, the MEK and Clair Lopez forcibly held Constance Tanter captive; transported her against her will to Paris, France; and subjected the Georgetown University professor’s wife to a coercive interrogation in the French capital designed to extort a signed capitulation to a divorce settlement characterized by Mrs. Tanter as literal robbery at gunpoint.  If Constance Tanter is telling the truth, Madam Rajavi was personally present for her interrogation and forced capitulation to a dictated divorce decree introduced into the American court system after the fact.

     Are the charges true?  Outsiders who have heard the allegations are at one level incredulous, yet uncommitted because of the cultic history of the Rajavis chronicled by Ed Blanche of The Middle East and other internationally credible sources.

Constance Tanter: Targeted by Raymond Tanter, Israeli Intelligence, and the MEK/MKO/PMOI in divorce settlement proceedings?

Alban Towers in Washington: DC Headquarters of The Iran Policy Committee and Denizens of Israeli Intelligence and the MEK

     One thing is crystal clear:  Mrs. Tanter is taking her allegations to The New York Times and other outlets who have already covered the MEK’s activities up to this point.  Her allegations are buttressed by a thick file of papers, diary notes, photostatically reproduced copies of Iran Policy Committee documents, and a complete list of the Iran Policy Committee’s e-mail contacts by name and accompanying e-mail addresses.  That list represents a virtual Who’s Who of the American Neo-Conservative, pro-Zionist Right; major figures in the Israeli government and intelligence community; MEK assets around the globe; and major players in a number of world governments and media outlets who seem to have more than a passing involvement with what Elizabeth Rubin terms, “An Iranian Cult.”  This story continues to unfold.

Habilian Association: What’s the role of Israel in the Iranophobia project and the creation of a false dichotomy between Iran and its neighboring countries? What would Israel find beneficial in playing a role in this ?

Mark Dankof:  This one is easy.  Any Internet search on the Iranophobia and Islamophobia projects internationally leads straight to Israel and its assets in the American Neo-Conservative Right.  The Center for American Progress report is among those that lead straight to the key players in the creation, funding, and dissemination of the Iranophobia and Islamophobia seeping out of Daniel Pipes, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, Kenneth R. Timmerman, Stephen Emerson, and the Israeli foundations, PACS, and media outlets.  This is a no-brainer.  The way these jokers spun the Breivik murders in Norway is a primer for the way they do business in virtually everything else.  I keep waiting for these kosher Ken and Barbie Dolls to explain Zionism’s history with the United States going back to the relationship of the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate to the Jewish Haganah’s blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the Lavon Affair, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the PROMIS affair, the Pollard spy case, and the recent AIPAC spy cases.  Frankly the Pipes, Geller, Gaffney, Emerson crowd reminds me of the old Colt 45 malt liquor TV commercials in the United States, where the guy sitting at the cafe table by himself in the middle of the bullfighter ring is oblivious to the real wars taking place all around him that constantly get closer to enveloping him while he quietly sips his drink.  The pro-Zionist American Right and Left are just like this:  focusing on an exaggerated and falsified threat, while ignoring the major player in the destruction of their national security, culture, political integrity, and economy.  It is pathetic.

     This is a $42 million dollar industry, the production and dissemination of the constant stream of anti-Iranian, anti-Islamic propaganda in the United States and Europe.  Someone is paying for it, and finds it profitable to continue paying for it.

     By the way, the classic example for our discussion is this:  Who produced and paid for the anti-Iranian propaganda film, Iranium, being promoted by Eric Cantor, Sam Brownback, Joseph Lieberman, and the usual suspects on Capitol Hill?  I don’t yet have the facts, but the promotional film available on the Internet is connected to Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.  The television spokesperson for the film is none other than Clair Lopez of the Iran Policy Committee and the Central Intelligence Agency.  Get the picture?

Habilian Association:  What is your estimation of the recent American accusation of Iran’s attempt to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to US?

Mark Dankof:  I believe the accusation is absurd on its very face.  As I told Press TV the other night, the nature of this alleged plot presupposes that the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Guardians Council, President Ahmadinejad, and the leadership of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps are all idiots.  They clearly are not.  There is no way that anyone acquainted with the intelligence and shrewdness of these Iranian leaders would buy for one minute the notion that they would commission a plot as reckless as this one, with two Iranian individuals representing the unstable profiles of the accused, and in conjunction with an unproven asset in a Mexican drug cartel (who proved to be an American DEA informant).  This is straight out of the Keystone Cops.

     And when we ask who might have benefited by a false-flag operation of this type pinned on Iran, the clear answer is Israel and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence in the American government angling for a wider war in the Middle East.  Israel does not want any regional power in the Middle East threatening its absolute hegemony in the region, especially Iran.  Simultaneously, they need an international PR diversion from their illegal activities in Gaza, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and elsewhere, where the Zionist State is clearly losing catastrophically in international opinion in every known venue outside that of the United States.  Even in the case of the latter, there are evidences of cracks in the canvas where the Netanyahu government is concerned.  And between the ominous downturn in the American national economy, and the upcoming Presidential election in 2012 where Obama and his GOP opponents are tripping over each other to demonstrate which has the most absolute fealty to American Jewry and the Israeli Lobby’s entrenched position on the Hill, the aggregate picture suggests the identity of the leading candidates for using this so-called Saudi Envoy Assassination Plot for their own non-publicly-advertised purposes and agendas.

     And now that there is a published allegation that Interpol in France has established an MEK-link and affiliation for the second terror suspect now in custody, the odor becomes even more pungent.  Yesterday’s New York Times made reference to this allegation, but only in a small strip column on page A8.  Where is Elizabeth Rubin on this one?  Or is the Israeli scent to the trail one her bosses have told her not to follow?  We shall see.  Mrs. Rubin’s July 13th, 2003 essay, “The Cult of Rajavi,” taken in tandem with her story of August 13th this year on the MEK, fills in many blanks.  Will she fill in the rest of them, and connect the rest of the dots for the composite portrait on the canvas?  If she should do so, some sordid people will run pell mell for the exits.  If she doesn’t, American Corporate/Zionist media will have failed the acid test one more time.

Habilian AssociationAfter all these many years, you should visit in Iran again.

Mark Dankof:  Time and political developments will determine whether or not God will grant me that special privilege.  If I do get the chance to come, it is my intention to also visit Yerevan and some of the Christian monsteries in Armenia, maybe in conjunction with another pilgrimage to the Armenian Christian Festival of St. Thaddeus at the Church of St. Stephanos in Azerbaijan Iran.  My own feelings about your country are best expressed by your 10th century poet, Ferdowsi.  I understand that chiseled on his stone tomb at Tus is an inscription of his immortal words which state, “Let not this body live if there is no Iran.”

Mark Dankof’s Final Word on Michael Collins Piper’s Final Judgment on Israel and the Assassination of JFK

Mark Dankof on Press TV: Piper is correct in his Final Judgment on Israel and the JFK Assassination

     I told an international television audience on Press TV/Iran this past Friday  that Michael Collins Piper’s book, Final Judgment, on the Israeli Mossad links to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is absolutely compelling, not simply in terms of unraveling the truth about what happened to America’s 35th President, but seeing the bigger picture surrounding false flags, governmental and media corruption, and how a linear line of development may be clearly drawn from the USS Maine and Lusitania incidents, Pearl Harbor, and the Kennedy killing in Dallas in 1963, to the events a decade ago in New York City propagandized ad nauseam yesterday on the 10th anniversary of 9-11 by everyone from the American Legion to the National Football League.

     And as noted some years ago, Israeli nuclear dissident Mordechai Vanunu agrees with Piper’s thesis, and has said so publicly.  Vanunu’s endorsement of the thesis may go a long way toward explaining his continued detention in Israel, perhaps more so than the revelations provided to the Sunday Times of London years ago about the Zionist State’s nuclear weaponry and operations at Dimona.

     Three official endorsements of Final Judgment will suffice here as an indication of the quality of Michael Collins Piper’s research, his analysis, and the inexorable conclusions drawn from both.

     Endorsement One (Dr. Herbert L. Calhoun, Ph. D., who retired as deputy division chief of the Policy, Plans, and Analysis Office of the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, and who formerly served as a senior foreign affairs specialist for the U. S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency.  He was the American representative to the 1996 and 1998 United Nations Group of Governmental Experts on Small Arms and Light Weapons.  Dated March 10, 2003):

     “As one who has read over 200 books on the JFK assassination, and engaged in research both as an individual and as part of various teams, I can say without fear of contradiction that Piper’s book is now the definitive work on the JFK assassination.  Final Judgment is the most thorough, most honest, most penetrating, most factual, and most analytically complete and systematic of all that I have read so far.”

The view of the Grassy Knoll Gunman on November 22, 1963. Did the Mossad and a Renegade Element in the French OAS Provide the Rifle Team? Mark Dankof photo in Dallas, September 1st, 2010.

     Endorsement Two:  (Colonel Donn De Grand Pre, who served as Deputy Chief of the International Division/Office of the Chief of Research and Development at the Pentagon.  In 1967, Grand Pre was named as Director for Ground Weapons Systems in the newly-created office of International Logistics Negotiations, responsible for negotiating sales contracts with heads of foreign nations for military weapons systems.  On September 30, 1979, The Washington Post Magazine wrote about Grand Pre, citing his expertise:  “If you had been a Middle Eastern ruler in the 1970s in search of American weapons systems, you would have called Donn de Grand Pre, Pentagon arms peddler.”):

     “Piper’s Final Judgment is brilliant.  . . .  Several high-level military officers believed that the killing of JFK was in fact a coup d’etat carried out by elements of the CIA working with the Israeli Mossad.  Kennedy was attempting to halt the development of nuclear weapons by the Israelis, while simultaneously planning to disband the CIA and disengage our military troops from the Indo-China area.  Read Final Judgment by Michael Collins Piper for more details. [Citing Final Judgment in Grand Pre’s own book, Barbarians Inside the Gates]”

Mark Dankof in November of 1963: Age 8, Montgomery, Alabama.

     Endorsement Three (Mark Dankof, ex-Republican Party activist, year 2000 Constitution Party candidate for the U. S. Senate in Delaware, and investigative print and broadcast journalist):

     “Having read all of the major Kennedy Assassination literature from Mark Lane’s Rush to Judgment and Josiah Thompson’s Six Seconds in Dallas to Anthony Summers’s Conspiracy, Jim Marrs’ Crossfire, and Gerald Posner’s Case Closed, I can say definitively that Michael Collins Piper’s Final Judgment is the Final Word on what happened to America’s 35th President.

     “Piper’s magnum opus accomplishes many things at many levels.  First, he studiously avoids tiresome repristination of ancient arguments about ballistics and the lone gunman controversy already covered in dozens of works on the Kennedy tragedy.  Second, he demonstrates conclusively that David Ben Gurion and his agents in the American Jewish Lobby were in serious subterranean warfare with JFK over Dimona, the burgeoning Israeli militarization of their nuclear program, and the President’s insistence that the Zionist State submit to international inspection of both.  In this regard Mr. Piper acquaints the reader with the copious research on this long-suppressed subject undertaken by Stephen Green in Taking Sides, Andrew and Leslie Cockburn in Dangerous Liaison, and Seymour Hersh in The Samson Option.

     “Perhaps most critically, Piper takes the outstanding research of Anthony Summers in Conspiracy on the elements of the CIA, organized crime, and the anti-Castro Cuban exile movement demonstrably involved in the events of November of 1963 in Dealey Plaza, and proceeds to show how all of these groups, individuals, activities, and associations were in fact, involved, but under the direction of Israeli intelligence; Meyer Lansky, Jewish organized crime chieftain with a direct line to Ben Gurion and Israeli intelligence; PERMINDEX; and James Jesus Angleton, the longtime director of counterintelligence for the CIA who simultaneously served as CIA liaison chief to the Mossad.  The incredible details of Final Judgment even include the Israeli Haganah gun running links of Oswald assassin Jack Ruby and Frank Sturgis, anti-Castro CIA operative with links to Watergate in the 1970, and the role of Jewish mobster Mickey Cohen in introducing Jack Kennedy to Marilyn Monroe–at the direction of Meyer Lansky and Menachem Begin.  . . .

     “Final Judgment even indicates what is behind much of the disinformation on the assassination disseminated in film and books, including the ominous implications of Mossad agent and Israel arms merchant, Arnon Milchan, being the financial angel of Oliver Stone’s movie, JFK.

     “After reading Final Judgment, no American will ever look at the American-Israeli relationship in the same way again, or fail to see the implications of the events in Dallas almost 50 years ago for the present tragedy of the Israeli-driven American military involvements in the Middle East; Israeli infiltration of the American media, Congress, and National Security State; or the insanity of the Zionist State’s attempts to involve the United States in an unjustifiable war with Iran.

     “It begs yet another question:  What was Israel’s real involvement in 9-11?”

     The clock is ticking.  Decent Americans, Iranians and all indigenous peoples of the Middle East and Central Asia, and people everywhere who oppose the New World Order must unite while we still can.

     And action presupposes the assimilation of the correct information and the will to act upon it.  That process begins with acquiring and reading Michael Collins Piper’s Final Judgment.  That is my Final Word today.

The Mujahedin-e-Khalq: The Peril of Paradox in American Middle East Policy

The Mujahedin-e-Khalq: The Peril of Paradox in American Middle East Policy

by Mark Dankof

One thing is abundantly clear about American policy in the Middle East–it is based on a series of paradoxical, internally contradictory goals and alliances which typically end in tragic results for friend and foe alike.

Nowhere is this conundrum clearer than in the present U. S. quandary over the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), or People’s Holy Warriors, as chronicled by Ed Blanche, Beirut correspondent for The Middle East, in that publication’s June 2009 issue.

As Blanche capably summarizes what is known of the MEK, the organization was formed in Iran in 1965 by leftist students, subsequently adopting a “bizarre ideology that embraced both Islam and Marxism.” The ideology soon became linked to urban revolutionary guerrilla violence. In the final years of Pahlavi Iran, the MEK conducted a series of attacks and assassinations on American military and diplomatic personnel, as it sought the overthrow of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi.

The MEK joined forces with Khomeini’s revolutionaries in this ultimately successful effort, only to be expelled by the IRI regime itself in Tehran once its usefulness had expired after the Shah’s departure. The MEK began to conduct guerrilla operations against the Mullahs as they had against the monarchy previously, with considerable success. But the Mullahs applied a level of retaliatory force the “Islamic-Marxists” could not endure. They fled to France, and later joined forces with Saddam Hussein against Iran in the 1980-1988 war between the Gulf rivals.

The shifting paradoxes would continue, as the MEK established a headquarters at Camp Ashraf in Iraq, largely under American and Israeli protection. The one-time adversaries of both Persian monarchy and its American military and intelligence allies, had now become a tool of the United States and the Europeans against the Islamic theocratic regime they helped to usher in 3 decades ago.

And the ultimate paradoxes are these: First, Mr. Bush’s Operation Iraqi Freedom has resulted in the installation of a central government in Baghdad largely sympathetic to the IRI regime in Tehran, and with identical animosity to the MEK’s presence within its borders. Second, while Ed Blanche notes that it “was the MEK that disclosed the existence of Iran’s nuclear program in August 2002, stunning the U. S. intelligence and military establishments,” he fails to note credible information provided by Barry O’Connell and IPS’s Gareth Porter that the MEK’s role in “disclosing the existence of Iran’s nuclear program,” has been to serve as a clandestine conduit of information on the subject supplied by the Israeli intelligence community. Hello, Mossad, meet your new allies in the “Islamic-Marxist” network worldwide.

There you have it. The Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), or People’s Holy Warriors, is an “Islamic-Marxist” terror organization, which assisted in implementing the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979; was subsequently involved in guerrilla warfare operations against the very Iranian Mullahs they helped to bring to power; fought on the side of Saddam Hussein for 8 years in the Iran-Iraq war between 1980-1988; and now, according to Barry O’Connell and Gareth Porter, is working with Jewish neo-conservatives and Israeli intelligence in planting false “intelligence” on Iran’s nuclear program with the American National Security State and Western news media, itching for a confrontation between Tehran and Tel Aviv—even as it now possesses an adversarial role with the very regime in Baghdad installed by Mr. Bush’s War. Confused?

You should be. The global international establishment can’t figure out what its position on the MEK is supposed to be, either. Hence, according to Blanche, Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Directorate is trying to find the organization a new place to live; the U. S. State Department continues to maintain a place for the MEK on its terrorism blacklist, as does the European Union; American and Jewish neo-conservatives in the defense and intelligence communities of the United States advocate an alliance with the MEK against Tehran; even as Britain’s Court of Appeal ruled in May of 2008 that the MEK “should not be deemed a terrorist organization.”

Oh, yes. One other thing. Even as Israeli intelligence and the Pentagon pursue an anti-Tehran alliance with the MEK, Tehran, according to Blanche, offered the United States in December of 2003 several senior Al Qaeda operatives in exchange for MEK commanders under U. S. control at Camp Ashraf. The U. S. could have had Saif Al Adel and Mahfouz Ould Walid (Abu Hafs the Mauritanian), even as it avenged the deaths of murdered American personnel from the days of Pahlavi Iran in the 1970s.

Why was there no deal?

Better ask the Mossad, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Kenneth R. Timmerman, and the Project for the New American Century crowd.

Isn’t paradox wonderful?

Israel’s Agenda of Control and Death in Gaza: Coming Soon to an American Neighborhood Near You

Israel’s Agenda of Control and Death in Gaza: Coming Soon to an American Neighborhood Near You

      Former U. S. Congresswoman and Green Party Presidential candidate, Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, has been sitting in an Israeli prison as one of the Free Gaza 21. She is now known as Israeli prisoner #88794. Her crime and that of her compatriots? In her own words, “. . .trying to take medical supplies to Gaza [by boat], building supplies–and even crayons for children.”

 

     As McKinney tells it, her own involvement with the Free Gaza movement, was precipitated by Israel’s Operation Cast Lead aerial assault on Gaza, which was launched in December of 2008. American taxpayers will be delighted to know that their conscripted monies on behalf of the Zionist State, funded unrestrained Israeli F-16 airstrikes on a captive population in Gaza, employing white phosphorus munitions, depleted uranium shells, robotic technology, DIME weapons, and cluster bombs. Word has it that Gaza has served as the laboratory testing ground for an entirely new generation of Israeli aerial weaponry, to be used at Tel Aviv’s discretion and with total disregard for international law or world political opinion.

     And Mr. Obama, like his predecessors, is engaging in a silence that is comprehensively deafening. Hugh Galford’s piece on Israeli PAC money in American elections, in the May/June Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA), provides the oh-so-familiar bottom line on why.

     But take heart, America. What is happening in Gaza, is coming to a community near you. Bet on it. Your own political and economic freedoms are in the crosshairs of the same folks. A totalitarian state is just around the corner in the United States, courtesy of the marriage of the Israeli intelligence apparatus and homeland security structures with their counterparts in this country, aided and abetted by the media and the U. S. government. This is the bottom line.

     The latest evidence of what has–and what will be–transpiring in the continental United States may be found in the current newsstand edition of Counter Terrorism: The Journal of Counterterrorism and Homeland Security International (Volume 15, No. 2, Summer 2009), in an article entitled, “International Corporate Profiles: Israeli Counterterrorism Institutes and Firms.” The magazine is published by SecureWorldnet of Arlington, Virginia, in cooperation with the International Association for Counterterrorism and Security Professionals, and the Counterterrorism and Security Education and Research Foundation.

     The article profiles 6 Israeli research institutes and commercial firms, representing only a sample of the total number of such organizations in existence. The reader will become acquainted with The International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT), and its commercial arm, Counter Terrorism Solutions (CST); The Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC), part of the NGO known as the Israel Intelligence Heritage and Commemoration Center (IICC); the Shurat HaDin–Israel Law Center; Chameleon Associates LLC [formerly known as the Chameleon Group]; the Sdema Group; and The Institute of Terrorism Research and Response (ITRR).

     Of particular note to the American reader are the tentacles of these shadowy organizations in the continental United States, and the American institutions working with them on a public basis. These include the Syracuse University Maxwell School of Government’s Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT); the University of Pennsylvania; Boeing; SAIC; Hewlett-Packard; and Texas A+M University. American cities, especially Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, figure prominently as hosts for these Mossad and Shin Bet front groups. No American political figure of significant prominence has said a word about the existence and operations of the Israeli intelligence nexus within the continental United States, even subsequent to the Pollard, Ben-Zvi, and Rosen/Weissman AIPAC spy cases. Why?

     Those of us on the authentic American Right will have special interest in the Shurat HaDin–Israel Law Center, headed up by Ms. Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, an Israeli attorney. According to CounterTerrorism, Shurat HaDin “models itself on the groundbreaking work of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the American civil rights organization dedicated to bankrupting the Klu Klux Klan (KKK), neo-Nazis, and other White Supremacist extremist groups in the United States. Like SPLC, the law center’s goal is to economically cripple extremist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere. . . .”

     This is clearly ominous. The Southern Poverty Law Center and its partner in the predictive profiling of legitimate American citizens, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), have a working definition of extremism which simply demonizes anyone who opposes Israeli governmental atrocities, Zionist ideology, or the left-wing political and social agenda of the majority of Jews in the United States. The Constitution Party candidate for President in 2008, my good friend Chuck Baldwin, chronicles the notoriously illegal and outrageous character of the infamous Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report, and the American Department of Homeland Security (DHS) missal, entitled, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

     The latter piece of trash reveals that DHS is warning law enforcement in the United States, to be on guard against anyone who:

“. . . opposes illegal immigration, same-sex marriage, ‘free trade agreements,’ gun control, the ‘New World Order,’ ‘One World Government,’ the outsourcing of American jobs, the ‘perceived’ threat to U.S. sovereignty by foreign powers, abortion, ‘declarations of martial law,’‘the creation of citizen detention camps,’ ‘suspension of the U.S. Constitution,’ or the abridgement of State authority. Also branded are people who believe in ‘end times’ prophecies, and who ‘stockpile’ food, ammunition, or firearms.”

     Baldwin goes on to say that the sources of information for the report are The Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith. (Baldwin, Cynthia McKinney, and Ron Paul were among the 3rd party Presidential candidates libelously depicted in these profiling reports as attracting the support of “extremists.” )

     Why is the mainstream American conservative movement and the Republican Party mute on what is happening, both in Gaza and in the destruction of the Old American Republic?

     As documented by Dr. E. Michael Jones in the April 2007 Culture Wars (pages 40-47) in an essay titled, “The Death of Conservatism,” it all began with the Jewish cooptation of William F. Buckley and National Review. Jones notes that the late Jew, Murray Friedman, proved it in his posthumously published magnum opus on Jewish influence in American politics, “The Neoconservative Revolution: Jewish Intellectuals and the Shaping of Foreign Policy” [Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2005, 303 pages]. According to Friedman, the Jewish activists who formed National Review and ran Buckley as their goyische front man, included Frank Meyer, Frank Chodorov, Morrie Raskin, and Willi Schlamm. Jones notes that:

     “What conservatism lacked in philosophical coherence, however, it made up for in effective political organizing techniques which its founding Jewish fathers’ remembered from their days in the Communist Party. Or from their days in Zionist terrorist organizations. In terms of organization, the most influential of Buckley’s ‘circle of Jews’ was a former communist who came to conservatism via Zionism, in particular via the terrorist organization known as Irgun Zvai Leumi. His name was Marvin Leibman and in addition to serving as publisher of National Review, he created the fund-raising technique known as direct mail, which would play a major role in the political movements surrounding Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan. In 1946, Leibman was captured trying to smuggle Jews into Palestine and held in a British detention camp in Cyprus for 15 days.”

     Thus, once Buckley and National Review were on board with their logistical and financial handlers, other Israeli front men subsequently served their Zionist masters in the infiltration of the American Right, including such frauds as Jack Kemp, Bill Bennett, Pat Robertson, John Hagee, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Ralph Reed. The endgame? Clearly it has proven to be the takeover of the American foreign policy and governmental establishments by Israel, the buyout of the American media, the destruction of this country’s once formidable manufacturing-based economy, and the continued declension of a sewage-seeped culture as embodied in the Jewish Hollywood establishment’s recent lionization of the late pedophile, Michael Jackson. Where does it end in this culture of death?

     My continued prediction: those who have financed the culture of death in America’s abortion industry, and who finance the continued extermination of Palestinians and Gazans with state-of-the-art American/Israeli military and surveillance technologies, will only be happy when a wider war with Iran is launched, courtesy of a false flag incident spun by the media moguls to fan the flames of public thirst for more Middle Eastern adventurism and mass murder.

     As Jesus said in the Olivet Discourse, “Watch.”
