Rooz spoke with Mohsen Armin, one of the leaders of the Sazman-e Mojahedin Engelab Eslami (Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization), about Mir-Hossein Mousavi, the presidential candidate endorsed by the political party in this Friday’s election. Read on for the details.
Rooz: Mr. Armin, you are the spokesperson for one of the main parties endorsing Mousavi. How do you evaluate your candidate’s current position?
Mohsen Armin: Mr. Mousavi’s position is very positive. The feeling of hope is completely palpable now following the arrival of a national wave of support for Mr. Mousavi in the past one or two weeks. Especially for someone like me, who has traveled to various cities across the country, the new feeling is completely palpable. Public opinion polls conducted recently by various organizations confirm this as well.

Most of us hear some people calling Hamas as a terrorist group. The term was originally used by the Bush administration (beside Israel) to put Hamas in a defending position and to avoid any further negotiations with them. The reason was very clear: Hamas is not pro-west! US and Europe would like to see a group in power that is friendly to them, no matter if they are really terrorists (like Al-Qaeda before 9/11) and/or dictators (like Saudi King, Egyptian Mubarak, Jordan King, . . . you name it!)
The fact is that Hamas may be categorized as a hardliner compared to the Fatah in Palestine, but by no means we can call them a terrorist group. Hamas chose the democratic procedures in Palestine and is considered as on of the most popular groups among Palestinians and in the Middle-East. There is a big difference between Hamas and terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda (made by CIA) that respect no democratic ways and search power through terror and killing innocent people.
It was because of this policy that Hamas was able to win in an election held 2 years ago in Palestine. The Washington Post stated “the radical Islamic movement Hamas won a large majority in the new Palestinian parliament” in Jan. 26, 2006.
“The election results stunned U.S. and Israeli officials, who have repeatedly stated that they would not work with a Palestinian Authority that included Hamas, which both countries and the European Union have designated as a terrorist organization.”
