TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian cyber group announced that it has hacked more 
than 1,000 important governmental websites of the US, Britain and France 
in protest at their support and financial aids to anti-Iran terrorist 
groups.

"To commemorate the Day of Campaign against Terrorism and the martyrdom 
anniversary of (former Iranian President Mohammad Ali) Rajayee and (his 
Prime Minister Mohammad Javad) Bahonar (by the terrorist Mojahedin-e 
Khalq Organization), the group rose to protest at the inhumane measures 
of the supporters of terrorism, with the US and Britain standing on top 
of them, through a new method and hacked and changed the pages of more 
than 1,000 of their websites," Behrouz Kamalian, Head of the Iranian 
Ashiyaneh (nest) cyber group, told FNA on Monday.

If you open the hacked sites now, you can see a logo of Iran and some 
pictures of martyrs Rajaee and Bahonar and a bi-lingual text in Persian 
and English expressing our group's protest at the US, Britain and 
France's attitude towards terrorism, Kamalian added.

Noting that the project started on Saturday and continued until Monday 
morning, he reminded that the group managed to hack more than 1,000 
governmental sites of the aforementioned countries, including the 
official website of Louisiana state in the US, Britain's Pevensey city 
council and other websites.

"All of the hacked websites have been registered at this address: 
www.zone-h.org," Kamalian added. 

His remarks came after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) 
announced in March that its cyber teams have hacked 29 websites 
affiliated with the US espionage network.

The IRGC has recently set up a new center to detect and combat organized 
crimes on the internet.

The newly-established center is tasked with monitoring the internet to 
detect and campaign against organized crimes, espionage, economic and 
social corruption, money laundering and cultural inroad.

Iran has said many times in the past that the western government's 
support for the MKO proves that their claims about advocating human 
rights are nothing but lies.

The MKO members last month celebrated the anniversary of their group's 
bomb attack on the central office of Jomhuri Eslami party in Tehran in 
1981 in which 72 party members, including senior Iranian political and 
religious officials, were martyred.

The MKO, whose main stronghold is in Iraq, is blacklisted by much of the 
international community, including the United States.

Before an overture by the EU, the MKO was on the European Union's list 
of terrorist organizations subject to an EU-wide assets freeze. Yet, the 
MKO puppet leader, Maryam Rajavi, who has residency in France, regularly 
visited Brussels and despite the ban enjoyed full freedom in Europe.

Some other members of the MKO who have had a role in the assassination 
of a large number of Iranian citizens and officials are currently living 
in France.

The group started assassination of Iranian citizens and officials after 
the Islamic Revolution in a bid to take control of the newly established 
Islamic Republic. It killed several of Iran's new leaders in the early 
years after the revolution, including Rajayee, Bahonar and the then 
Judiciary Chief, Mohammad Hossein Beheshti who were killed in bomb 
attacks by MKO members in 1981.

The group fled to Iraq in 1986, where it was protected by Saddam Hussein 
and where it helped the Iraqi dictator suppress Shiite and Kurd 
uprisings in the country.

Many of the MKO members have abandoned the terrorist organization while 
most of those still remaining in the camp are said to be willing to quit 
but are under pressure and torture not to do so.

A May 2005 Human Rights Watch report accused the MKO of running prison 
camps in Iraq and committing human rights violations.

According to the Human Rights Watch report, the outlawed group puts 
defectors under torture and jail terms.

Numerous articles and letters posted on the Internet by family members 
of MKO recruits confirm reports of the horrific abuse that the group 
inflicts on its own members and the alluring recruitment methods it 
uses.

The most shocking of such stories includes accounts given by former 
British MKO member Ann Singleton and Mustafa Mohammadi -- the father of 
an Iranian-Canadian girl who was drawn into the group during an MKO 
recruitment campaign in Canada.

Mohammadi recounts his desperate efforts to contact his daughter, who 
disappeared several years ago - a result of what the MKO called a 
'two-month tour' of Camp Ashraf for teenagers.

He also explains how the group forces the families of its recruits to 
take part in pro-MKO demonstrations in Western countries by threatening 
to kill their loved ones.

Lacking a foothold in Iran, the terrorist group recruits ill-informed 
teens from Iranian immigrant communities in Western states and blocks 
their departure afterwards.
