The enemy of your enemy isn't necessarily your friend

Reader comment on item: [Mujahedeen-e Khalq:] A Terrorist U.S. Ally?

Submitted by Temur Khan (Taiwan), May 31, 2003 at 08:15

The Mujaheddin-e-Khalq are just another disgusting band of 1960s and '70's revolutionaries spouting a dreary blend of Marx, Fanon, and some windowdressing quotes from the Qu'ran. Back in 1979, I'm sure they bragged about being the first "revolutionary fighters" into the "nest of spies" in Teheran. Why should America give these black bugs anything except a 400-day prison sentence?

In America, I saw Khalqis asking people to sign their petitions on the Washington mall. But people who take over Embassies or assault diplomats say they will not talk to the attacked power, only fight. I'm ashamed that America ever gave political asylum to Khalqi sympathizers when many others might be truly grateful to America for asylum.
