Insights Into a Terrorist-Supporting Country

[Column written 4/4/07] ©2007 Mumia Abu-Jamal

        What kind of country arms, pays and supports known terrorist groups to kill, maim and kidnap another government’s soldiers and officials?

        What kind of count pays and arms known terrorist groups to create chaos, loss of life and ethnic enmity in another country?

        When such questions are posed the usual responses are Syria, Iran, or perhaps Saudi Arabia, for they seem to be tailor-made references as states which support either Hezbollah in Lebanon, or Hamas in Occupied Palestine.

        Yet I speak not of these examples, although it would be understandable given the drumbeat in the nation’s media.

        But, what the media whispers, the world knows. They know that the answer is the USA.

        In February, 2007, the London Daily Telegraph reported that the US is presently funding terrorist groups in Iran, to create chaos, and sow dissension in the country.

        In an article datelined Washington, February 25, the North Carolina Asheville Global Report (Mar. 17, 2002) covered the story of US secret funding of ethnic minority terrorist groups in Iran, like the Mujahadeen-e Khalq, an Iraq-based Iranian group which has opposed Iran’s present regime with bloody resistance.

        That group is just one of several supported by the US CIA and its secret “slush fund”.

        According to the list published by the US State Department, the Mujahadeen-e Khalq is a ‘terrorist organization.’ (Perhaps they should add an asterisk [*] for ‘ally.’)

        Iran has millions of non-Persian minorities, who have lived there for centuries, and yet chafe under the present religious government. The most populous are the Ahwazi Arabs, who number some 16 million (or 25%) in the predominantly Persian country. There are millions of Kurds (as there is in Iraq and Turkey). There are nearly a million Baluchi, who live mostly in the border areas near Pakistan. The Baluchis, a predominantly Sunni people, have supported the nationalist movement, Brigade of God, which reportedly kidnapped and slew 8 Iranian soldiers in 2006.

        The AGR report quotes the head of the think tank, Global Security, John Pike, who attributes much of this unrest to the CIA.

        According to some published sources, Washington is now debating whether to “unleash” the Mujahadeen fully, a move that could have unforeseen consequences for the future.

        And these are the dudes who blather about restoring ‘stability’ to the region!

        What is perhaps most troubling (over and above the suffering of Iranians who are the targets of these US-backed terrorists) is the simple fact that the US is, once again, simply repeating the stupidities of history.

        Decades ago, it funded and supported the jihadis against the Russians in Afghanistan. Those same forces morphed into al-Queda, and became the core of the Taliban. Now, the US is supporting their blood kin in Iran.

        It isn’t that they expect such groups to actually take over the Shi’a theocracy, but in the event of either US or Israeli attack, they could do serious social and psychological damage to the country.

        The goal? To cow Iran into giving up its nuclear ambitions.

        Because the US has supported terrorism, should it now attack itself?
