Arab anxiety and MeK

Reader comment on item: A Call for American Boldness in Iran

Submitted by Demsci (Netherlands), Jun 27, 2009 at 05:54

Arab anxiety is logical. They must realize that Iran just possibly might challenge Israel with a nuclear exchange. And while they might be happy with a destruction of Israel, they see the distinct possibility of a deadly wounded Israel lashing out, not just to Iran, but to its other enemies as well. About MeK. I spoke with members of them, who had lost many loved ones, who were executed by the regime. We were so in accordance about the need for democratic change in Iran that I donated to their cause. But what struck me was that they were still Islamic, saying religion was not the issue. They portrayed Muhammad as a saintly man, telling a story about him portraying his good character. Later I found out that that actually was a story about Baha'ullah, which had been "stolen" by Muslims.
