Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, spoke in a conference held by the terrorist cult Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), which was listed as a terrorist organization in the US and Europe from 1997 to 2012. The group that is still a Marxist-Islamic cult was built around the personality of its leader, Maryam Rajavi.
He talked among a crowd of about 4,000, most of them refugees and young eastern European who had attended there in return for a trip to Paris. He claimed that the fall of the government would happen by economic isolation. Although he showed his interest to the group, it was turned out that the MEK had paid him for years around $20000 for his brief appearances before the group and his lobbying to remove the cult’s name from the US’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO).
Last year, John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser, spoke in the MEK group’s conference, which later revealed that he had received about $180k in “speaker fees”.
Bill Richardson, former US ambassador to the United Nations, US energy secretary and Democratic governor of New Mexico, Stephen Harper, former prime minister of Canada, were also in attendance.
Among all the attendees, just half of them were Iranian, the other half were Poles, Cechs, Slovakians, Germans and Syrians who accepted a Facebook campaign promising travel, food and accommodation to Paris. Hundreds of the attendees were Syrian refugees in Germany. A lot of them snoozed under trees during the conference.
A young Syrian mother said that they didn’t know anything about MEK, and came on a holiday because they saw the deal on Facebook and had never seen Paris before.
