Human Lives Human Rights: Ezatollah Sahabi, a member of the freedom movement, wrote in his memoire about the devil works of MeK/MKO and the Saudi-Iraqi government under Saddam, in the incident of “Bloody Friday.”
Sahabi wrote: “Unfortunately, a large number of our people were killed in Saudi Arabia as a result of the mysterious interventions that took place.”
There is even evidence that suggests that the Iraqi regime, which was aware of the conspiracies planned by the MKO and the Saudis and coordinated with them in order to massacre the Hajj rituals. In a part of disclosed negotiations between Iraqi Security officers and an old-line agent from the center ring of the MKO named Abbas Davari, who headed the MKO convoy in Hajj in the year 1987, met with Iraqi security officers on the issue of the presence of the MKO in the Hajj and cooperation of Ba’athists as follows:
Abbas Davari: We want, in case of permission, to have presence in the Iraqi Hajj Caravan in such a way that it does not come out that we are from the Mujahedin and non-Iraqi, and also want to arrive in the same day that Iranians enter; Because, as you know, Iranians goes to Hajj with Caravans. We want to penetrate our forces in them to make connections. Even the Iraqi officer admits that the passports for the members of Mujahedin were issued by the Iraqi government.
In March 2001, 13 years after the Mecca disaster, an image of Massoud Rajavi was published in Mojahed Magazine, indicating that he was present in Mecca in 1987. In this photo, besides Rajavi, there are people like Abbas Davari, Alireza Babakhani, Mohammad Seyed Almohadesin, Alireza Sadr, Haj Seyed Javadi and Reza Doroudi that all of them were the heads of foreign affairs and intelligence and security of the MKO.
In addition, further evidence indicated that the leader of the MKO was going to Saudi Arabia secretly in the year 1987 with the official invitation received from Malek Fahad and at the same time as the events of Mecca occurred.
In this regard, Mehdi Abrishamchi, told to an Iraqi intelligence officer that: “we have a scheduling table to keep this trip safe even to be hidden from the airport staff, and we will let you know to do base on it and we expect it to be done. No one knows about it except the three of us.”
Massoud Rajavi during the negotiations with Lieutenant General Saber al-Douri, head of the Iraqi intelligence service, said: “Our envoy met with Richard Murphy in the United States, and we tried to prove to them that the Iranian regime is a serious threat to American interests. We also made it clear that this threat is also being addressed to Saudi Arabia.” This and many other documents prove that the Mujahedin had collaboration with Saudi regime and was involved in the bloody massacre of Mecca in 1987.
This shows the peak of the crime of a terrorist organization that used all means to achieve its goals, especially when the Iraqi government was at war with Iran.
Is this action really different from the actions of ISIS in Syria and Iraq today?! All these points and many other reasons that are beyond the scope of this article prove that, firstly, Saudi Arabia’s cooperation with the Mujahedin existed, and secondly, this cooperation has a long history and dates back to at least the first years of the Iranian revolution.
