Israel has financed, trained, and armed Iranian dissident groups in order to carry out terrorist attacks on Iranian soil, according to top U.S. officials.
The group, Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK), is designated as a terrorist group by the United States and is accused of carrying out terrorist attacks in the past, including on American citizens. With the help of Israel, MEK has carried out five assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists since 2007 and may have destroyed a missile research and development site.
U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Obama administration knows of the assassination campaign but has no direct involvement. However, there has been a big money push by many influential people in Washington to get MEK removed from the State Department’s terrorist list, presumably to make them eligible for U.S. funding.
The Iranians have made these allegations of Israeli terrorist attacks carried out by MEK for quite a while, but only now does it have confirmation from U.S. officials. Mohammad Javad Larijani, a senior aide to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a recent interview with NBC News claimed they knew Israel was funding MEK, sharing intelligence, and training them inside Israel in the use of motorcycles and bombs.
The Iranians say much of their intelligence on this matter has come from interrogations with an MEK member that carried out one of the assassination attempts. The MEK has denied these allegations, issuing a statement calling them “absolutely false.”
Even if its true, as U.S. officials insist, that Washington has no involvement in these terrorist attacks, they do support Israel through unmatched economic aid, arms sales, and diplomatic support. As Larijani recently told NBC News, if America, Israel’s closest ally, is aware of this terrorism, “the United States has an obligation…to push Israel not to do it” and “to pursue it, like pursuing us, at the United Nations with different resolutions.”

And there goes the “freedom" of a “free" Iranian "freedom fighters”. That is to say if they (MEK) ever was free to fight for freedom of the Iranian people, to start the argument, they never had the peoples backing. MEK is nothing but bunch of opportunistic religious cults where they would sale their mothers to the highest bidder. In this case it is and always been the Israelis or US or Europeans government paying them to keep this Terrorists group a life for future use, as they (US and EU) have done in Libya and now in Syria and doing it in other part of the world. This is their last resort, they don't have any “democratic" face or argument left, so they beg the terrorists to help them out.
MEK is a religious cults ?
MEK is a left wing terrorist group or should i say, Iranian communist rebel. There is nothing religious with this group. it is completely and clearly had a secular goals.
OK, this is a matter of definition. It is well known that certain radical 'secular' political groups have the same kind of group dynamics and behaviours as extremist 'religious' cults. This is all anyone means when they call MEK a "religious cult", they are not saying that its ideology or motivation is religious.
Terrorist group? Right on the mark. Cult? Absolutely! I'll dig around and show you some details on this phantom freedom-fighting organization. It's all about the money and the people recruited and abused to fill its ranks are used by its leaders to that end.
Here you go… read on down and follow the links within this story.
Next country that would take care of these terrorist elements would be Turkey, that is with the blessing of NATO and especially US, France and England government. MEK is a no angle when it comes to their religious beliefs nor their ideology, that is if they have one. Long time ago they were called "Islamic Marxism” which in term of theology or Marxism – communism the label dose’t make any sense, later (After 1980) they were and are controlled by US and EU and the leaders (Massoud Rajavies) family and his wife cults which is not religion nor have a political standing among the people of Iran, but they are and been useful as terrorist group helping US and NATO cause in the region. The MEK leaders left their comrades in Iran to be massacred by the then Khomani regime in 1979-1982 and flee to Iraq during that time, since then they been supported and armed by USA, France and England. Now they are resurfacing and begging for US – Israel and EU to help them in exchange for them to help and operate their terrorist activity in Iran and other part of Middle East.
Israel made terrorism, typical
and the US government has no problem with this….
I think the concerned peoples of the world would jump for joy if the z-mafia got nuked
Israel funding and training terrorists? That would make it a terrorist client state would it not? So when will the bombings begin? Of course I'm saying this all tongue-in-cheek seeing as the US does exactly the same thing.
The title is misleading: it should say "to MURDER Iranian Scientists"
Who decided the scientists are guilty of anything ? are all Nuclear scientists guilty of some crime ?
It is unfortunate that Anti War simply repeats the disinformation being spread by Neocons and Israel. "Killing" can mean justifiable homicide.
Premeditated killing of a scientist for nothing more than he is a nuclear scientist is murder and state sponsored terrorism.
How would we feel if some foreign country killed one of our Nuclear or NASA scientists, possibly working on military projects: would we call it "killing" or "murder" ?

God help us all with people like this in charge …….of anything
there are no qualifications for public office, so we end up with rubes like rubio who have yet to take the straw from his mouth, wash behind his ears, learn what a noun is or count to ten
And yet the sanctions are imposed on Iran. Iran which has no nuclear weapons, has not attacked or invaded another nation or people, does not carry out assassinations of Israel's scientists etc. The warmongers/patriots are clamoring for revenge on Iran all over the media, revenge for something they have not done and could not do. They are even demanding that nuclear bombs be dropped on Iran.
Does this mean under the Bush Doctrines of Fighting countries that sponsor Terrorism? The MEK are OFFICIAL terrorists of the USA. Will we start seeing American Drones over Israel shooting into the Camps where the terrorist trainers live and train? In other words Israeli military instilations.
I doubt it American Exceptionalism!
MEK is designated a cult because it uses the cultivates it's leaders (a cult of personality) see for example Lenin, Mao, Kim Il Jung, Castro or even Pol Pot.
typo in the subheading of article
Remember Israel is blockading Gaza because they call Hamas a terrorist group. They point that they are on the official list of terrorist. Well so is MEK and Israel if clearly funding them along with the rebells in Syria. This is not a new situation. The following is an extract from a diary is recorded events of Syria and Lebanon in 1955 and if Israel should get involved.
When Moshe Dayan and Ben-Gurion were debating the feasibility of interfering with Lebanon's internal politics and destabilizing Syria. Moshe Sharett wrote in his dairy:
"I saw clearly how those who saved the state so heroically and courageously in the War of Independence would be capable of bringing a catastrophe upon it if they are given the chance in normal times." (Iron Wall, p. 134)
Similarly, Sharett also wrote on the same subject:
"the lack of seriousness exhibited by the [military brass, including Ben-Gurion] . . . in its approach to the affairs of the neighboring countries and especially toward the most complicated problem of Lebanon's internal and external situation was simply horrifying." (Righteous Victims, p. 498)
When Israeli Foreign Ministry and Defense officials advised of initiating a [preventive] war against Egypt before it rebuilt its army, Moshe Sharett wrote in his diary on October 12th, 1955 :
Trying to pawn it all off on the Israelis is patently false. We fund and support the MeK, and have been for years. Israel is part of our Bankster driven, Globalist foreign policy and has always been. You can't separate the two. This is just theater.
Israel has alot of experience working with Terrorist groups Stern Gang & Irgun
How long before a MEK operatives armed with box cutters slam hijacked planes into the Pentagon and New York?
Hizzbollah hunts down Jews overseas.
Iran supports Hizzbollah
The MEK were partly responsible for the holding of the US Embassy Hostages in Iran.
