Open Letter to Massoud Rajavi

22 June 2003

Mr Rajavi,

For some time now your number hasnít come up in the lottery. And it has been stated time and time again that this is not because of the strength of the Iranian regime nor because of international deals, rather it is because you have been heaping shit onto your own head for all these years and now even you can smell it on yourself. Now what you have done with your own hand cannot be undone.

On the 15 June 2003 you suddenly issued three statements under your NCRI pseudonym crying wolf, saying Ďhelp, help Jamil Bassam and Ebrahim Khodabandeh have been handed over to Iran by the Syrian authorities. Shock, horror.í But, by the way, you didnít say why they were in Syria. You didnít state from what date it has not been a crime for the Mojahedin to see their families. You didnít say which donkey from your intelligence stable chose Syria for families to meet. You didnít say that, following your orders, Ebrahim didnít see his English daughter and grandchildren in the UK more than six or seven times in all their lives. Nor did you say that for twenty-five years Ebrahim didnít see his mother more than once or that Jamil had not seen his mother at all for two decades. And you have not said a thousand other things which have since surfaced in the past few days.

In truth, Mr Rajavi, instead of giving the scheduled time of flights from Syria to Iran, was it not better to explain in your statement why you had sent Jamil and Ebrahim to Syria in the first place. Wasnít it better that, instead of giving the serial numbers of their travel documents, you said what documents they were carrying and for what offence they were arrested. And wasnít it better, rather than stressing that they were arrested on 18 April and had been in a Syrian prison until now, that you explained what it was that you and your organisation were hiding for the two months that you were suffocated and couldnít speak to any international agency of these arrests. Why was it that Amnesty International, the UNHCR and the families of these two people and other agencies which could have been of help were given the news by the National Council of Resistance of Iran only two months after the arrest and exactly on the day that you had made certain that they were now in Iran.

Really Mr Rajavi, when, in the middle of the night of 15 June, Ms Mehrafruz Paykarnegar, one your devotees, called from the Paris office of your Council to the daughter of Ebrahim, who had only given birth to her new baby four weeks earlier, and told her ďyour father was taken to Iran yesterday and they are going to execute him tomorrow, come to London for a demonstration in front of the Syrian embassy tomorrow morningĒ, did you not think that she might need a few words of explanation? The next day when you sent Ms Mitra Baqeri from London to convince her to participate in your press conference, even in her post-natal condition, didnít you think that saying sentences like ďhow come you can sit in your comfortable house while your father is lying on the torture bedĒ, would make the distressing situation that you have already created for her even worse.

Or maybe this actually is your aim, and one of your tactics is to unbalance people in this way in order to use them as you wish, otherwise you wouldnít at the same time send a telephone message from one of your rats houses in London under the name of Mahmoud (which telephone number is already known and the identity of the person is under investigation) telling her ďif it was my father I would burn myself in front of parliament right nowĒ. Didnít you think that when the mother of Ebrahimís daughter refused to participate in your meetings and you brought Ms Elahe Azimfar to sit in the press conference to pose as Ebrahimís wife that it would have been better if you had explained a little bit about the forced separation and divorces in the Mojahedin in the last twenty years on your direct order which has stopped any marriage and created a gender apartheid in the organisation. And after all, didnít you think that all these lies and cheap deception would not last for more than just a few days.

Really Mr Rajavi, with all those MPs and lawyers on whom, as Mitra Baqeri stressed, you spent tens of thousands of pounds in order to have the Syrians release Jamil and Ebrahim, couldnít you, together with the rest of the geniuses surrounding you, come to the conclusion that they would have to do something before their extradition to Iran and not after? And really, if you had involved only a little bit of intelligence, do you think anybody would accept that you believed these two people to be anything but expendable. You know and we know that this wasnít your first time.

Mr Rajavi, we donít buy your crocodile tears and those of your infamous backers of yesterday and today. You thought that once again you could fool everyone. You were mistaken. Only a few days have passed and many facts have now been revealed and have been passed to the relevant authorities. Let a few more days pass, and we will expose the rest of your deception and be certain that by whatever means we will add these documents to those already gathered and waiting for your prosecution. The time of hiding behind Saddam Husseinís facilities is past and you cannot undo what has been done.

When you sent a message to Ebrahimís daughter to burn herself, and obviously the relevant documents have been passed to the police, the execution of the orders for the following self-immolations had not been carried out. Did you not think that the trace of your organisational order for self-immolation could be discovered in these latest activities. Really Mr Rajavi, wasnít this part of your programme to perform a propaganda miracle in Europe which was interrupted by the French police with the arrest of your dollies.

Mr Rajavi, we found that after Neda Hassaniís self-immolation in London, your agents told reporters that she had come from Canada to England on holiday. Didnít you think that her picture and interview aboard a tank in Ashraf camp in Marie Claire magazine (May 1999) might tell a different story? Or maybe you still want to emphasise that this is as true as the story of Jamil and Ebrahim meeting their families in Syria both at the same time? When Azam Leila Jazayeri nee Mullahzadeh who for the benefit of parliamentarians in the UK has, for the past twenty years, been blaming the death of her husband Hassan Jazayeri, who actually died in your manoeuvre grounds in Iraq, on the Iranian regime, and who is also a well known character to the police in the UK, was presented to the media as a bystander, did you expect that nobody would say anything? Why? Mr Rajavi, it doesnít take a genius to see your dirty hands and training behind each and every recent self-immolation. You are not the first leader of a cult in the world, nor are these tactics and brainwashing unknown or unfathomable. Self-immolation as an indicator of paralysis of thought can only be performed by people who have been drowned in some cult or other, not by a political sympathiser or a Canadian tourist.

How do you think we should remember Marzieh Babakhani or the others who you have bred for slaughter? In the end they werenít killed by the regime ruling Iran, you killed them. Really Mr Rajavi, what happened that the fate of Jamil and Ebrahim under the knife of their thirty year old enemy is being analysed as being a far better one than the fate of Marzieh Babakhani and those others like her, who burned in the fire of your lust for power. And really, is it true that this is a process to replace the use of Abu Ghraib prison after the downfall of your friend Saddam? Mr Rajavi, whatever action is being undertaken in Europe and America to save the lives of Jamil and Ebrahim is not being done to rescue two unfortunates who were sacrificed due to the lack of sense in your system, but two who were expended deliberately by you for your own benefit so that you could run away. Whether they are rescued or not, the responsibility for them before the British government, before Human Rights organisations and before humanity is on your shoulders and that of your gang of bandits.

Following this and as soon as the solicitor has confirmed them as evidence, the details in the documents will be published.
