US Officials: Israel Works With Terror Group to Kill Iranian Scientists
The Mujahedeen e-Khalq is being trained, armed, and funded by Israel to
cary out terrorist attacks on Iran

Israel has financed, trained, and armed Iranian dissident groups in
order to carry out terrorist attacks on Iranian soil, according to top
The group, Mujahedeen e-Khalq (MEK), is designated as a terrorist group
by the United States and is accused of carrying out terrorist attacks in
the past, including on American citizens. With the help of Israel, MEK
has carried out five assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists since
2007 and may have a missile research and development site.
. . U.S.
officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Obama
administration is knows of the assassination campaign but has no direct
involvement. However, there has been a big money push by many
influential people in Washington to get MEK removed from the State
Department's terrorist list, presumably to make them eligible for U.S.
The Iranians have made these allegations of Israeli terrorist attacks
carried out by MEK for quite a while, but only now does it have
confirmation from U.S. officials.Â Mohammad Javad Larijani, a senior
aide to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a recent
interview with NBC News claimed they knew Israel was funding MEK,
sharing intelligence, and training them inside Israel in the use of
motorcycles and bombs.
The Iranians say much of their intelligence on this matter has come from
interrogations with an MEK member that carried out one of the
assassination attempts. The MEK has denied these allegations, issuing
a statement calling them 'absolutely false.'
Even if its true, as U.S. officials insist, that Washington has no
involvement in these terrorist attacks, they do support Israel through
unmatched economic aid, arms sales, and diplomatic support.
As Larijani recently told NBC News, if America, Israel's closest ally,
is aware of this terrorism, "the United States has an obligation-to push
Israel not to do it" and "to pursue it, like pursuing us, at the United
Nations with different resolutions."
