Raymond Tanter

Raymond Tanter has a long history of association with the Ultra-Violent Islamic/Marxist Terrorist Group the Mujahedin-e Khalq. Tanter who is a professor emeritus at the University of Michigan has deeply involved himself in both furthering and financing groups that the US Government and other credible organizations clearly say are fronts for terrorism. Tanter is a spokesman and fundraiser for the Mujahedin-e Khalq also known as the MEK or MKO. Despite the fact that the MEK has been involved in the brutal murder of innocent men, women, and children, as well as terrorist attacks on the US Military Tanter chooses to associate himself with Mujahedin-e Khalq front organizations. If we apply President Bush’s definition of Terrorism then we must conclude that Raymond Tanter is a Terrorist.
