Iraqi agents of Hadi al-Ameri and Faleh al-Fayad steal Camp Ashraf properties

Agents of Iraq’s National Security organ headed by Faleh al-Fayad and the Badr Organization of Hadi al-Ameri looted and stole property from Camp Ashraf belonging to the Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty

Iraqi agents used 50 flatbed trucks to carry out the stolen goods that include vehicles and loot from 10 large warehouses in recent weeks.

On September 5, 2013 a joint plan between UNAMI and the U.S. Embassy in Iraq for the evacuation of Camp Ashraf when the last group of residents left Ashraf based on this plan stipulates that the Government of Iraq “shall safeguard and guarantee all Ashraf property”.

In July, Nouri al-Maliki handed over Camp Ashraf to the Commander of the terrorists Badr Organization Hadi al-Ameri to use the camp for assembling the terrorist militias affiliated with the Iranian regime.

Since then agents affiliated with the office Iraqi National Security Advisor Faleh al-Fayad, the Badr Organization and the Iraqi Intelligence officially responsible for safeguarding the properties began looting and stealing the belongings of Iranian dissidents that had remained in the camp based on a plan by the office of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

10 WAY IRAN SUBVERTS THE MIDDLE EAST (AND THE WORLD)

The Tower- In 2009, at the beginning of his first term in office, President Barack Obama announced that his administration would be seeking to “directly engage” with Iran. Nonetheless, Obama acknowledged that Iran’s “actions over many years now have been unhelpful when it comes to promoting peace and prosperity both in the region and around the world; that their attacks or their financing of terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas, the bellicose language that they’ve used towards Israel, their development of a nuclear weapon, or their pursuit of a nuclear weapon — that all those things create the possibility of destabilizing the region.”

Nearly five years later, in a 2013 press release announcing the Joint Plan of Action regarding Iran’s nuclear program, the Obama administration issued a fact sheet about the deal with Iran, noting that though some sanctions had been relaxed, “[a]ll of our targeted sanctions related to Iran’s state sponsorship of terrorism, its destabilizing role in the Syrian conflict, and its abysmal human rights record, among other concerns, remain in effect.”

However, despite ongoing negotiations, during the past year Iran’s sponsorship of terrorism and destabilization of its neighbors has continued, and in many ways worsened. Continue reading 10 WAY IRAN SUBVERTS THE MIDDLE EAST (AND THE WORLD)

Camp Liberty

Various pains don’t let me have a decent night’s sleep. Last night I had another nightmare. It has been nearly a year now that I have endured such conditions in Camp Liberty. It was five years ago when that horrific event happened and it comes back to haunt me again and again. I was the driver of a minibus and I took around my refugee friends across Camp Ashraf in Iraq, the 25-year home of 3,000 Iranian refugees opposing the mullahs’ regime. July 28, 2009 was a hot summer day in Iraq and from the very beginning I felt fire was pouring down from the sky. However, the beauty of the tree-lined roads in Camp Ashraf had overshadowed everything. I was preparing the vehicle for the residents when I heard the bad news: Maliki government forces had attacked Ashraf!!? I was taking a number of passengers when I saw a number of passengers streak by with their sirens running. With the utmost unbelief and curiosity after I took the passengers to their destination I thought it would be better to go to entrance gate.

Camp Liberty: Even time is taken hostage

By Hamid Imeni, Camp Liberty

hostage

In today’s world almost everyone is aware of the dirty act of hostage-taking. When one hears a phrase, reads it or sees it, like it or not similar actions and objectives, along with a repeated scenario, come to mind. However, the evil spirits in all the dirty frameworks are too similar and common, wherever they may be, and they only encourage more hideous crimes and actions.

Right now I want you to join me for a few moments to get informed with a new type of hostage taking. I have just one request: in any state you may be reading these lines, empty your thoughts for a few moments for the sake of the rights of human beings, so that you would completely understand and come along with me. Now I want to take you to a ‘prisonlike’ place where 2,800 noble and freedom-loving human beings are and one third of which are women. Therefore, during the next few moments that we reach there I prefer to brief you a bit on its history. The ironic part is that many people, meaning the so-called “human rights activists” have dubbed this place “Camp Liberty” and they insist the residents must accept this name, too.

I used to be a fundamentalist

By Vahed Saif, Camp Liberty

23 years ago in Iran I was a die-hard supporter of Ayatollah Khomeini, who depicted himself as the representative of God on Earth and said, “If you die for me you will go to Heaven.” Born in a poor, religious family I had no reason not to believe him. Low culture and poor economic status was one of the main elements that helped his recruiting, and at times it provided basic means that these individuals never had access to. The fundamentalists even described our poverty and hunger as a guarantee of our emancipation in life after death!

I was only 19 and the 1991 Persian Gulf War had just ended when I was enlisted in the Revolutionary Guards and we entered Iraq in a small group to promote Khomeini’s version of Islam. The mission that I was briefed on was to first deliver blows to Khomeini’s dissidents, meaning members of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, and thus pursue our ultimate strategy being the occupation of Iraq.

Healing beds or torture and execution chambers?

By Hanif Garmabi, Camp Liberty

???????????????????????????????

Nearly 2 years ago I left my beloved father in Ashraf in the situation in which I believed that after accomplishing the matter of our possessions in the Ashraf, I would meet him again in the Camp Liberty, because in the quadripartite agreement, in which UN and US took part, the Iraqi government pledged to ensure the security and safety of those PMOI members who remained in Ashraf till the matter of possessions were settled.

But later on 1 September 2013 in total disbelief we heard the news of attack of the camp Ashraf by Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki’s Dirty Division forces. I was shocked by this news, running to watch the news as it was being broadcasted. In the first broadcasting of the pictures of the victims of this atrocity, I saw my father lying dead on a bed in Camp Ashraf’s clinic. He was drenched in blood and had gunshots in his body, true signs of crime against humanity.

Later I watched that painful picture many times, and stared with agony to the innocence of my father who was betrayed, and always this question hurting me why? Continue reading Healing beds or torture and execution chambers?

US and UN Turning A Deaf Ear To Medical Siege in Camp Liberty

Iraq: Camp Liberty Medical Siege is Crime Against Humanity

Depriving terminally ill and cancer patients, on the verge of losing their lives, of medical treatment is considered crime against humanity. Such horrific crimes are completely politically motivated and carried out by Iraqi security forces loyal to the Iranian regime at a camp adjacent to Baghdad airport and ironically named ‘Liberty‘, all under the very eyes of the UN.

Another patient suffering from heart illness says,“Iraqi forces cancelled my medical appointment for various reasons while I don’t know if there will be another turn for me.”

Around 3,000 Iranian dissidents, who have during the past 28 years lived as refugees in Iraq, are now the targets of this massive crime. This blockade has to this day taken the lives of 22 of these refugees, who lived in Camp Ashraf – located 90 kilometers north of Baghdad up to 2011 – and then transferred to Camp Liberty neighboring Baghdad airport under a mandatory relocation. On Sunday, 9 November 2014, patients in Camp Liberty held a rally protesting this medical siege that has been ongoing for 5 years.
