Iran Interlink Weekly Digest – April 20, 2018

Iran Interlink weekly digest exposing mojahedin khalq rajavi cult mek mko ncri++ In Albania, using the pretext of having no money, the MEK has begun contacting the families, trying to get money in exchange for letting them talk on the phone with their relatives. Ex-members have written comments reminding the families that all the money they can send is not comparable to the tens of thousands of dollars in fees that the MEK pays daily to lobbyists and gang masters. The MEK’s aim is, one, to launder money received from Saudi and Israel under the pretence that the MEK is funded by ordinary people. Secondly, in the case that somebody does pay, to set them up by informing the Iranian authorities and claiming that the family has been put in prison.

++ In Albania again, they suddenly collapsed after the prospect of American war with Syria disappeared, Now MEK websites ignore Syria as if they had never mentioned it before. The escape of four more people this week is attributed to the vacuum of hope which opened up after the failure of yet another of Rajavi’s promises. Also last week, one person has been killed or has committed suicide, it is not known which. Some writers comment that the major achievement of bombing Syria has been the exposure of Rajavi and her gang again – nothing else.

++ It is also reported from Albania that Maryam Rajavi is settling there. MEK has built a new place for her by the sea where she lives with around 200 top people to cook and clean, etc, but they haven’t let the rank and file know because they are living in miserable conditions in Camp Ashraf Three. She has also appointed her first husband, Mehdi Abrishamchi, as commandant of Camp Ashraf Three, in charge of suppressing dissent and preventing escapes. Although he is based at the sea-side resort he comes and goes regularly to the camp. Abrishamchi is notorious in MEK for his brutality and as a torturer. He was the liaison between MEK and Saddam Hussein’s Intelligence services who escaped just as Operation Iraqi Freedom was launched in 2003 as a wanted man for crimes against humanity, including torture of MEK inmates in Abu Ghraib.

In English:

++ EU Reporter published a report of the open meeting about the Mojahedin Khalq Threat in Albania which was held in the European Parliament on April 10th hosted by MEPs Ana Gomes (S&D) and Patricia Lalonde (ALDE). The report encapsulated the information given by the speakers. This covered the MEK’s toxification of political debate on Iran by infiltrating parliaments and corrupting and misleading political representatives. The MEK is replicating this methodology in Albania according to Nicola Pedde of the Rome based Institute for Global Research. In Albania, MEK is interfering not only in the political life of the country but also attacking religious tolerance, freedom of expression and cultural heritage, said historian Olsi Jazexhi. Lawyer Migena Balla explained how, through her work helping ex-members, it had become clear that MEK members have no UNHCR refugee status, no right to residence in Albania and no work permits. This has left them dependent on MEK financial support under a secret deal struck between the American and Albanian governments with MEK in 2013. Linking this information with the discrepancies in actual numbers of MEK in Albania, Anne Khodabandeh, de-radicalisation consultant, explained how unaccountable the MEK are. Nobody knows how many they are, or exactly who they are, she said. They are living as modern slaves.

++ Olsi Jazexhi, Historian, took part in a televised debate in the Arena programme along with Ermir Gjinishi – Educator and former vice deputy of the Muslim Community of Albania, Ylli Zyla – former Director of Albania’s Military Intelligence Service, and Hajro Limaj – retired general and former Military Attaché of Albania to Turkey. The programme ended with a discussion of MEK in Albania. Gazeta Impakt transcribed this part and Iran Interlink has translated it into English. The conclusion of all the participants was that the MEK Is not a good thing for Albania.

++ Dr Nadejda K. Marinova, in Informed Comment, uses the past history of lies and misinformation by people like Ahmed Chalabi before the Iraq war, to warn against believing groups like MEK now. The piece concludes “Will we see MEK in front of the cameras, speaking on behalf of 80 million Iranians and the Iranian diaspora, telling us that they all support a bombing or invasion, and that it will remake the region for the better?
“When Chalabi told us lies sixteen years ago, supported by the White House, many in the public (and in Congress) believed him. Let’s not make the same mistake again. The consequences can wreak havoc, and inflict pain and misery on millions of people that support neither these lies, nor the greed for power and domination that gives rise to them.”

++ Massoud Khodabandeh in The Iranian, writes about the MEK’s role in toxifying political debate on Iran in the European Parliament. Khodabandeh points out that there was an opportunity in the round table debate for the MEK’s supporting MEPs to come and defend or explain the MEK’s positions. However, even “MEP Gérard Deprez, Chair of the Friends of a Free Iran in the European Parliament (affiliated to the MEK), who claims to have gathered over 200 signatures from fellow MEPs in favour of the MEK, was unable or unwilling to join the debate. When asked by MEPs to give the names of the signatories, he refused to do so.”

The Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi cult) Risk in Albania: This is what Arena said

Olsi Jazexhi_Arian_Ora_News_Mojahedin_Khalq_Maryam_Rajavi_in_ALbania

The Arena show with journalist Dritan Hila this week also discussed the Iranian Mojahedin (MEK) organization. The speakers invited to discuss this issue were: Olsi Jazexhi – Historian, Ermir Gjinishi – Educator and former vice deputy of the Muslim Community of Albania, Ylli Zyla – former Director of Albania’s Military Intelligence Service, and Hajro Limaj – retired general and former Military Attaché of Albania in Turkey, currently he is Director of the National Security Institute of Albania.

The Iranian Mojahedin, the MEK organization, was discussed in the last part of the show. The following is the part of the show about the Iranian Mojahedin who have been living in Albania for some time as a refuge.

Olsi Jazexhi: Yesterday I was speaking in the European Parliament, invited by two MEPs, Ana Gomes and Patricia Lalonde. We were a group of experts on the Mojahedin, the MEK situation. There were people from Britain as well as Dr Nicola Pedde from Italy. There were also some de-radicalized Mojahedin there. In the EU parliament there are Deputies who feel disturbed by the presence of the Iranian Mojahedin there. The Mojahedin have a history in Albania since 2013, the year when the government of Berisha brought the first group of them. In February 2016, we had a visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry, when he was announced that there will be about 3000 people. According to a recently published police report, there are about 2745 Mojahedin in Albania, out of which about 11 have died, 80 have left using regular documents and 65 have fled as illegals from Albania.

Dritan Hila: Will they stay here, will they be naturalized?

Olsi Jazexhi: Since 2014, with the encouragement of American partners, Albania has modified the penal code and Albanians in Albania have become very serious about terrorist organizations. In a debate with former deputy Foreign Minister Edit Harxhi in Top Channel, I asked why he brought these people here. What was said then was that these are war refugees and Albania will accommodate them. The problem with them is different from the war refugees coming from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Palestine etc, who are assimilated, integrated and marry in our society. This is a paramilitary organization, listed as a terrorist organization by the EU and the US, and later because of American policy changes toward Iran they were removed from the list. But the problem is what is happening inside them? First, the organization itself is in crisis; about 200 members have abandoned the organization. I have followed their case and have met some of them. The problem is that the organization itself puts pressure on those who want to abandon jihad, accuses them of following an Iranian agenda, withholds their funds.

Dritan Hila: Where do they find support?

Olsi Jazexhi: “With regard to their funds, there was a secret agreement between the Albanian and American governments and the Mojahedin in Iraq, where it was agreed that these people would behave themselves, and the UNHCR would transfer the MEK, who would pay for their own people in cash. They are paid about 500-600 euros per month. But what happens? The ideology of this organization is that they must wage a violent war against Iran.

Dritan Hila: On arriving here, have they given up their war?

Ermir Gjinishi: This is the problem.

Ylli Zyla: They have renounced war.

Ermir Gjinishi: They have said that we will continue the war against Iran and this is one of the points where they break the agreement with Albania because Albania has put the condition: We keep you, but only provided you do not engage in problems and conflicts.

Olsi Jazexhi: One of the concerns that the MEPs I met in the European Parliament had was that here in Albania, under the influence of the American extremist senators, from John Bolton and John McCain, they are constantly urging them to declare themselves to be ready to do jihad.

Dritan Hila: It seems to me that there are some almost broken with age.

Ermir Gjinishi: Every day they do sports.

Olsi Jazexhi: Exercise and not sports.

Ermir Gjinishi: They are military.

Dritan Hila: Even the colonel, when I telephoned, was walking.

Olsi Jazexhi: 70 percent of them are elderly, but others are 30-40 years old. I’ve met some of these people. These were tank drivers, snipers, there are those who have prepared people for suicide attacks. This is a cultic organization. They are neither Muslim nor non-Muslim. Their leader Maryam Rajavi is something like Shen Eleonora we have had here in Tirana. She tells members that ‘I am the Imam Mahdi and I will deliver Iran’. It seems to me that our Diaspora Minister Pandeli Majko believes she is sacred, since occasionally he says she is a very good woman, he says that when he goes to Iran he will eat ice cream there. The problem is that in the speeches he makes when the US senators come or where Mr Majko goes, he says we will overthrow the Iranian regime and we will bring democracy. This was the problem we discussed in the European Parliament. Experts in the European Parliament explained. This organization is a dictatorial cultic group. Members of the organization were relocated to Manez in Durres because Maryam Rajavi and the Americans were worried that when they were in Tirana, members began leaving the organization. Those inside are not allowed to marry, do not have sex, they are forbidden. They do not have wives, children, they are soldiers who have  sworn to die for Rajavi. They have no freedom of thought.

Dritan Hila: Can they cause problems for Albania?

Olsi Jazexhi: Their existence here turns Albania into what Afghanistan was at the time of [Osama] Bin Laden. Afghanistan at the time of Bin Laden hosted a terrorist organization that was Al Qaeda. What happened? The jihadists created September 11th from Afghanistan.

Dritan Hila: Are you comparing Edi Ramen to Mullah Omar now!?

Olsi Jazexhi: Exactly, I hope to make the news. The problem here is that during the revolts in Iran on December 31, Maryam Rajavi claimed that ‘we are the ones who stir up revolts’. In these revolts people were killed, soldiers were killed, officials killed, institutions burned down, and according to the Albanian penal code the calls made by Mrs. Rajavi are calls for terrorism.

Dritan Hila: The protests were also organized by Ahmed Nayat.

Olsi Jazexhi: A problem that the MEPs dealt with is that there are some pro-war circles in the EU who are encouraged by some US circles who want to promote these people as if they are democratic and will bring democracy. The people who know, such as Ana Gomes, who participated in the stabilization of Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein and knows the nature of the cult, says that democratic is the last thing that can be said about the MEK. They do not free their members, they’ve kept them imprisoned for 30 years. They do not let them talk to their families.

Dritan Hila: Mr. Zyla, you see them as a threat because they are recognized as a problem?

Ylli Zyla: I know it as a problem. It would be better not to have them in Albania, but of course there are agreements between states. They have a terrorist background. Their violence began with the Iraq-Iran war, where they participated in many terrorist actions against the Iranian army.

Olsi Jazexhi: They had killed Americans earlier on, at the time of the Shah.

Ylli Zyla: Their policy of violence continued until 2001-2002, when they renounced the policy of violence.

Olsi Jazexhi: They gave up after 2003 when the Americans bombed them. They Americans stopped them.

Ylli Zyla: An agreement was reached.

Dritan Hila: Did this American detention endure?

Olsi Jazexhi: Yes, these have been Saddam’s trustees, they have murdered the Kurds with chemical weapons.

Ylli Zyla: When the Iraqi authorities came to take control of Ashraf camp the MEK did not accept it. There was a clash and there were casualties. The MEK came to Albania on the basis of an agreement. They were not sent to countries like France or elsewhere because in those countries there are Iranian communities and in Albania they are easier to manage. They are in a camp and are easily verifiable by the security services.

Ylli Zyla: Do they not pose a risk in my view? I say there is no risk because they are over 50 years old. The problem may be the infiltration of Iranian intelligence services among these people and that they may become violent. I do not consider it a big risk compared to what we mentioned earlier as Gülenists or Wahhabi organizations. These are less dangerous – do not say they are not – if we keep it under control, Not only under control but also from the effects of the Middle East secret services, namely Iran.

Ermir Gjinishi: The issue, as Olsi said, is that all these kinds of organizations are a problem as cults. What he said about Gülen. The story of the cult led by the saint, what does it mean? History has shown that at certain moments, it is enough to match a thread and follow them because they enforce the orders.

Ylli Zyla: They do not target Albania and they have no support.

Ermir Gjinishi: Iraq did not target Iran, but MEK did target Iran, even in Iraq. Why, they are robots.

Dritan Hila: The problem of cultic organizations is the lack of public scrutiny. I would prefer a dictator over whom we have oversight than such organizations that are scary and have ideological convictions.

Ermir Gjinishi: The MEK should continue to be always under strict supervision. Stay in that enclave they have created. It’s just not the case that they are 50 years old, they daily climb Mount Dajti as a group. I see them. They are military. I don’t have the strength to exercise so much. They do exercise every day. They have to give that up when they go abroad or speak in the name of Albania and threaten the state of Iran. They should give up this idea that we will fight endlessly. We’ve taken refuge only to bring the conflict here.

Ylli Zyla: They cannot threaten Iran because they have no influence. Iranian society does not consider them as an opposition because in the years 1980-81 they turned against their state.

Dritan Hila: These people themselves, are they Iranians?

Ermir Gjinishi: For their whole existence, Iran has treated MEK as terrorists.

Dritan Hila: I thought these people were not opposed to the Ayatollahs.

Olsi Jazexhi: These are Islamist, revolutionary Marxists. These are like Gülen with Erdogan. They were together with the Iranian mullahs when they fought the Shah, then they fought against each other. The Mojahedin have their heroes. The first president and the prime minister of Iran after the Shah were killed by a suicide bomber who blew himself up. Today’s Ayatollah, Khamenei, has his left hand paralyzed because they tried to kill him with a bomb. Mossad of Israel uses them from time to time to kill scientists and kill intellectuals.

Why did America appreciate them? America appreciated them because they exposed the Natanz nuclear reactors that Iran was developing and for this they gave them many points.

Dritan Hila: I do not care about their activity in Iran.

Olsi Jazexhi: The Italian expert who clarified their activity in Europe.

Dritan Hila: I do not care about the Italians’ opinion or what they said, your opinion is of interest.

Dritan Hila: Colonel, you have three minutes, are you are able to score?

Hajro Limaj: America considers MEK as the opposition of the current government in Iran. If an overthrow occurs in Iran, it is determined that the MEK will go in as an opposition and be part of the country’s leadership. I have had the opportunity to meet some of them, stay in their new quarters. They seemed to me normal people. In these circumstances, America has found the most appropriate place for them. But they are under our full scrutiny and we are in control of Iranian agents here in Albania.

Ermir Gjinishi: And they can provoke a clash!?

Dritan Hila: Do you think it’s a little complex that even Bin Laden has been through here, it has become like socks.

Ermir Gjinishi: Albania has never had this number, and these are military.

Dritan Hila: These are additional.

Hajro Limaj: Albania should keep itself clean. It is better not to have them. Our government has no transparency in what it does.

Olsi Jazexhi: If they like them, America should take them to Texas, or lodge them in Saudi Arabia. They are a security risk.

Dritan Hila: However, I think that in some way, Albania became a playground where they can clash with Iranian security services.

Hajro Limaj: An Iranian came to Albania a year and a half ago and is today married to an Albanian, so they use all ways to have people here to follow their activities.

Dritan Hila: Do not forget that we share traditions. The surname Harasani means Khorasani.

Olsi Jazexhi: On the day of Sultan Nevruz – only a few media reported it – these Iranian Mojahedin caused chaos in the Bektashi World Headquarters. It seems that the Albanian police were prompted, and two Iranian journalists were arrested whom Father Mondi himself had invited to cover the ceremony. This was an incident that our media only reported a little. A few weeks ago, former Albanian President, Rexhep Meidani, went to Tehran for a conference celebrating Naim Frasher. MEK attacked our former president and said he had been recruited by Iran. A couple of weeks ago, Top Channel broadcast interviews with three defectors in the Fiks Fare show, showing how they are abused and threatened by this organization which puts pressure on them to continue jihad. The MEK attacked Top Channel and said Top Channel was bought by Iran. These MEK are threatening freedom of speech and thought in Albania. Albania brought them here, but that is very bad. They often exceed the limits of why they came to Albania. They are entering into and becoming part of our debate and are opening up hysteria against Iran. We must say this, put aside attacks on officials of the Iranian embassy and institutions, they are now also attacking religious sites and religious centers like the Bektashi Communist Party. This is a problem because they are meddling in our affairs. It’s not only the problem with Iran.

Ermir Gjinishi: The case of Sultan Nevruz is heavy, the worst of it is that the media did not cover it.

Olsi Jazexhi: They are now interfering in our politics. They are lobbying and trying to buy politicians to lobby for them.

Mojahedin threat for Albania – debate in the European Parliament (aka MEK, MKO, NCRI, Rajavi cult …)MEPs discuss Mojahedin-E-Khalq (MEK) Threat in #Albania (Full report)

Original report (Albanian)

Rreziku i muxhahedinëve në Shqipëri: Ja çfarë u tha në emisionin Arena
Nga gazeta impakt – April 13, 2018

Kete jave ne emisionin “Arena” te gazetarit Dritan Hila u fol edhe per muxhahedinet iraniane, organizaten MEK. Te ftuarit e emisionit qe folen per kete teme ishin: Olsi Jazenxhi – historian, Ermir Gjinishi -pedagog, Ylli Zyla – ish shef i SHIU dhe Hajro Limaj – ish ATASHE në Ankara. Ne lidhje me muxhahedinet iraniane, organizaten Mek, u fol ne pjesen e fundit te emisionit. Ne vijim eshte pjesa e emisionit ku flitet per muxhahedinet iraniane te cilet qendrojne ne Shqiperi qe prej disa kohesh si refugjate.

Olsi Jazexhi: Dje isha ne parlamentin Evropian i ftuar nga dy eurodeputete, Ana Gomez dhe Patricia Lalonde. Ishim nje grup ekspertesh mbi situaten e muxhahedineve MEK. Kishte persona nga Britania, si dhe ishte i pranishem edhe dr Nikola Pede nga Italia. Kishte edhe disa ish muxhahedine te deradikalizuar. Ne parlamentin e BE-se ka deputete qe ndihen te shqetesuar nga prania e muxhahedineve iraniane. Muxhahedinet ne Shqiperi kane nje histori qe nga viti 2013, vit kur qeveria Berisha solli grupin e tyre te pare. Kemi ardhjen e sekretarit amerikan te shtetit Xhon Kerri ne shkurt te 2016-s, kur u njoftua se do vijne rreth 3000 veta. Sipas nje raporti policor qe eshte botuar se fundmi tregohet qe ne Shqiperi ka rreth 2745 muxhahidine, nga keta rreth 11 veta kane vdekur, 80 veta jane larguar me dokumente te rregullta dhe 65 kane ikur si klandestine nga Shqiperia.

Dritan Hila: Keta do te rrine ketu, do te natyralizohen?

Olsi Jazexhi: Shqiperia qe prej vitit 2014 me nxitjen e partnereve amerikane e ka modifikuar kodin penal dhe ne shqiptaret ne Shqiperi jemi bere shume te serte ndaj organizartave terroriste. Ne nje debat me ish zevendes ministren e jashtme Edit Harxhi ne Top channel e kam pyetur se perse po sillen keta njerez ketu. Cfare u tha atehere ishte se keta jane refugjate lufte dhe Shqiperia do ti strehoje ata. Problemi me keta eshte ndryshe nga refugjatet e luftes qe vijne nga Afganistani, Iraku, Siria, Plaestina etjer, te cilet asimilohen, integrohen dhe martohen ne shoqeri. Keta jane nje organizate paramilitare, qe eshte listuar si organizate terroriste nga BE dhe SHBA, dhe me vone si pasoje e nryshimeve te politikes amerikane ndaj Iranit keta jane hequr nga lista. por problemi eshte se cfare po ndodh me ta ne brendesi? Se pari organizata vete ka nje krize, rreth 200 anetare te saj kane braktisur organizaten. Une e kam ndjekur ceshtjen e tyre dhe kam takuar disa nga ata. Problemi eshte qe organizata vete i ben presion ketyre personave qe duan te braktisin xhihadin, i akuzon si agjende iraniane, i pret fondet.

Dritan Hila: Ku e gjejne mbeshtetjen?

Olsi Jazexhi: “Ne lidhje me fondet e tyre ka patur nje marreveshje sekrete nepermjet qeverise shqiptare, amerikane dhe muxhahidineve ne Irak, ku u ra dakort qe keta njerez do silleshin dhe Mek nepermjet UNHCR-se do ti mbante keta njerez me para. Keta paguhen rreth 500-600 euro ne muaj. Por cfare ndodh? Filozofia e kesaj organizate eshte qe keta duhet te bejne lufte te dhunshme kundra Iranit.

Dritan Hila: Me ardhjen ketu, a kane hequr dore nga lufta?

Ermir Gjinishi: Ky eshte problemi

Ylli Zyla: Kane hequr dore nga lufta.

Ermir Gjinishi: Jane shprehur se ne do vazhdojme luften kunder Iranit dhe kjo eshte nje nga pikat qe ata e thyejne marreveshjen me Shqiperine sepse Shqiperia i ka vene kusht: Ne ju mbajme por me kusht qe te mos ndiqni problemet dhe konfliktet.

Olsi Jazexhi: Nje nga shqetesimet qe kishin eurodeputetet qe une takova ne Parlamentin Evropian ishte se ketu ne Shqiperi nen influencen e senatoreve ekstremiste amerikane, qe nga Xhon Boltoni dhe Xhon Mekein etjer, ata ne menyre te vazhdueshme i nxisin qe keta te deklarohen qe jane te gatshem qe te bejne xhihad.

Dritan Hila: Mua me duket sikur ishin ca te thyer ne moshe.

Ermir Gjinishi: Cdo dite bejne sport.

Olsi Jazexhi: Stervitje dhe jo sport.

Ermir Gjinishi: Ata jane ushtarake.

Dritan Hila: Edhe kolonelin kur e telefonova, duke ecur ishte.

Olsi Jazexhi: 70 perqind e tyre jane te moshuar, por ka te tjere qe jane 30-40 vjec. Une kam takuar disa nga keta njerez. Keta kane qene tankiste, snajperiste, ka prej atyre qe kane pregatitur njerez per sulme vetevrasese. Keta jane nje organizate okulte, nuk jane tamam as myslimane dhe as jomyslimane. Kryetarja e tyre Marjam Raxhavi eshte pak a shume si Shen Eleonora qe kemi patur ketu ne Tirane. Ajo i thote anetareve se une jam Imam Mehdiu dhe une do ta cliroj Iranin. Me duket se Ministri jone i diaspores Pandeli Majko beson qe ajo eshte e shenjte, pasi here pas here thote qe ajo eshte shume grua e mire, thote qe kur te iki ne Iran do haje akullore atje. Problemi qendron se ajo ne fjalimet qe mban kur vijne senatoret amerikane apo aty ku shkon z Majko, thote se ne do ta rrezojme regjimin e Iranit dhe ne do sjellim demokraci. Ku ishte problemi qe ne diskutuam ne Parlamentin Evropian. Ne parlamentin Evropian folen persona eksperte. Kjo organizate eshte nje oragnizate okulte diktatoriale. Anetaret e oragnizates jane zhvendosur ne Manez te Durrsit sepse Marjam Raxhavi dhe amerikanet u shqetesuan se kur keta ishin ne Tirane, filluan anetaret te largoheshin nga organizata. Ata qe jane aty brenda nuk lejohen te martohen, nuk bejne dot seks, e kane te ndaluar. Nuk kane gra, femije, ata jane ushtare te betuar qe duhet te vdesin per Raxhavin. Nuk kane liri mendimi.

Dritan Hila: A mund te shkaktojne problem per Shqiperine?

Olsi Jazexhi: Ekzistenca e ketyre e kthen Shqiperine sikur ishte Afganistani ne kohen e Bin Ladenit. Afganistani ne kohen e Bin Ladenit strehonte nje organizate terroriste qe ishte Al Kaeda. Cfare ndodhi? Nga Afganistani, xhihadistet bene 11 shtatorin.

Dritan Hila: Po e krahason Edi Ramen me Mulla Omarin tani!?

Olsi Jazexhi: Tamam, shpresoj qe ta bejne lajm. Problemi eshte ketu se kur ndodhen revoltat ne Iran ne 31 dhjetor, Marjam Raxhavia thoshte qe ne jemi qe i nxisim revoltat. Ne keto revolta u vrane njerez, u vrane ushtare, u vrane zyrtare, u dogjen institucione u dogjen banka dhe sipas kodit penal te Shqiperise thirrjet qe ben z Raxhavi jane thirrje per terrorizem.

Dritan Hila: Protestat ishin te organizuara edhe nga Ahmedin Nexhati.

Olsi Jazexhi: Nje problem qe trajtuam me eurodeputetet ishte se ka disa qarqe luftarake ne Be qe nxiten nga disa qarqe amerikane qe duan qe ti promovojne keta njerez sikur keta jane demokrate qe do sjellin demokracine. Personat qe i njohin, si Ana Gomez qe ka marre pjese ne stabilizimin e Irakut pas renies se Sadam Hyseinit dhe e njeh natyren okulte, thote se keta jane gjeja e fundit qe mund te flitet per demokraci. Ata nuk i lene anetaret e tyre, i mbajne mbyllur prej 30 vjetesh. Nuk i lene te flasin me familjet e tyre.

Dritan Hila: Z. Zyla, Ju e shikoni si rrezik meqe e njihni si problem?

Ylli Zyla: E njoh si problem. Me mire do ishte te mos i kishim ne Shqiperi, por natyrisht ka mareveshje midis shteteve. Ata kane nje begraund terrorist. Dhuna e tyre ka filluar me luften Irak-Iran, ku kane marre pjese ne shume aksione terroriste kunder ushtrise iraniane.

Olsi Jazexhi: Edhe me heret kane vrare amerikane ne kohen e Shahut.

Ylli Zyla: Politika e tyre e dhunes ka vazhduar deri ne vitin 2001-20002, kur hoqen dore nga politika e dhunes.

Olsi Jazexhi: Hoqen dore pas vitit 2003 pasi amerikanet i bombarduan. I kane vrare amerikanet ata.”

Ylli Zyla: U dorzuan arriten nje marreveshje.

Dritan Hila: I rrezistuan keta pushtimit amerikan?

Olsi Jazexhi: Po,keta kane qene fidainj te Sadamit, kane vrare kurdet me arme kimike.

Ylli Zyla: Shkuan autoritetet irakiane per ta marre ne kontrroll kampin Ashraf. Keta nuk pranuan. Pati perplasje. dhe pati edhe viktima. Keta erdhen ne Shqiperi ne baze te nje marreveshje. Keta nuk u derguan ne vende si Franca apo ne vende te tjera sepse ne ato vende ka pasur komunitete iraniane dhe ne shqiperi eshte me e lehte per ti menaxhuar. Keta rrine ne nje kamp dhe jane lehtesish te verifikueshem per sherbimet e sigurise.

Ylli Zyla: Perbejne a nuk perbejne rrezik, ne kendveshtrimin tim, une them se nuk ka ndonje rrezik, sepse ata kane nje moshe mbi 50 vjet. Problem mund te jete infiltrimi i sherbimeve sekrete iraniane brenda ketyre personave qe keta mund te behen te dhunshem. Une nuk e quaj ndonje rrezik te madh duke i krahasuar me ato qe thame me pare si gyleniste apo organizatat vehabiste. Keta jane me pak te rrezikshem, mos them fare nuk jane. Ne rast se ne do ti mbajme ne kontroll, jo vetem nen kontrroll por edhe ne kontroll nga ndikimet e sherbimeve sekrete te Lindjes se Mesme, saktesisht Irani.

Ermir Gjinishi: Ceshtja eshte se te gjitha keto lloj organizimesh kane problem me okultizmin, ate qe tha Olsi. ate qe tha edhe per Gylenin. Historia e kultit qe shihet me shenjteri cfare do te thote? Historia ka treguar qe keta ne momente te caktuara, mjafton nje fije shkrepse dhe keta te marrin sepse zbatojne urdhrat.

Ylli Zyla: Keta nuk kane target Shqiperine dhe keta nuk kane mbeshtetje.

Ermir Gjinishi: Ne Irak nuk patem target Iranin por e bene target Iranin edhe ne Irak.Sepse keta jane robote.

Dritan Hila: Problemi i organizatave okulte eshte mungesa e kontrrollit publik. Une do preferoja me mire nje diktator qe ka nje lloj vezhgimi se sa organizata te tilla qe jane te frikshme dhe kane nje lloj bindje ideollogjike.

Ermir Gjinishi: Keta duhet te vazhdojne gjithnje te jene patjeter gjithnje ne mbikqyrje te rrepte. Te rrine ne ate enklaven qe kane krijuar. Nuk eshte thjesht historia se ata jane 50 vjec, ata ngjiten perdite ne malin e Dajtit grup. Une i shoh. Ata jane ushtarake. Une nuk kam force te eci aq shume. ata bejne stervitje cdo dite. Ata duhet te heqin dore qe kur te dalin jashte Shqiperise ose qe te flasin ne emer te Shqiperise dhe te kercenojne shtetin e Iranit. Ata duhet te heqin dore nga kjo ide qe ne do te luftojme pafundesisht. Une ste kam marre ne strehe qe te ma sjellesh konfliktin ketu.

Ylli Zyla: Iranin nuk e kercenojne dot sepse nuk kane asnje ndikim. Shoqeria e Iranit nuk i konsideron keta si opozite, sepse keta ne vitet 81-81 kane dale kunder shtetit te tyre.

Dritan Hila: Keta vete si popull, jane iraniane?

Ermir Gjinishi: Irani gjithe jeten i ka trajtuar keta si terroriste.

Dritan Hila: Une mendova mos jane njerez te shahut qe kundershtuan Ajatollahun.

Olsi Jazexhi: Keta jane marksiste islamiste, revolucionare. Keta jane sikurse Gyleni me Erdoganin. Ishin bashke me hoxhallaret iraniane kur e rrezuan Shahun, me pas u zune me njeri tjetrin. Musadikun e kane nje nga heronjte e tyre. Presidentin dhe kryeministrin e pare te Iranit pas Shahut e kane vrare, i kane cuar nje kamikaz, e kane hedhur ne ere. Ajatollahi i sotem, Khamenei, doren e majte e ka te paralizuar sepse ja kane vrare keta me bombe. Keta i perdor Mosadi i Izraelit here pas here qe te vrasin shkencetare dhe te vrasin intelektuale.

Pse i vleresoi keta Amerika? Amerika i vleresoi sepse keta spiunuan reaktoret nukleare te Natanzit qe Irani po zhvillonte dhe per kete ata i dhane shume pike.

Dritan Hila: Nuk me intereson aktiviteti i tyr ne Iran.

Olsi Jazexhi: Eksperti italian qe ne kishim sqaroi aktivitetin e tyre ne Evrope.

Dritan Hila: Nuk me intereson mendimi i italianeve se cfare kane thene, mendimi juaj me interesonte.

Dritan Hila: Kolonel ke tre minuta, je ne gjendje te besh gol.

Hajro Limaj: Amerika i vlereson si opozite e pushtetit aktual ne Iran. Ne rast se ne Iran do te ndodhi ndonje permbysje, percaktohet qe keta te shkojne si opozite dhe te jene pjese e drejtimit te vendit. Kam pasur rastin te takoj disa prej tyre, rrine tek lagjet e reja poshte. Me jane dukur njerez normale. Ne keto rrethana te krijuara, Amerika gjeti vendin me te pershtatshem.  Por Irani neve na ka ne vezhgim te plote dhe ata jane ne kontroll te agjentures iraniane ketu ne Shqiperi.

Ermir Gjinishi: Dhe mund ta ngacmojne ata nje perplasje!?

Dritan Hila: A ju duket pak komplekse se ketu ka ka kaluar edhe BIn Ladeni, eshte bere si çorape.

Ermir Gjinishi: Shqiperia nuk ka pasur asnjehere kete numer, keta jane ushtarake.

Dritan Hila: Keta po shtohen

Hajro Limaj: Shqiperine duhete ta kemi te paster, eshte me mire mos kemi. Qeverisja jone nuk ka transparence me ato qe ben.

Olsi Jazexhi: Amerika duhet ti merrte vete e ti mbante ne Teksas, ne qofte se i donte ose ti conte ne Arabine Saudite. Ata jane rrezik per sigurine.

Dritan Hila: Megjithate une mendoj qe ne nje fare menyre Shqiperia behet nje shesh ku ata perplasen me sherbimin sekret iranain.

Hajro Limaj: Nje iranian erdhi para nje viti e gjysem ne Shqiperi dhe sot eshte martuar me shqiptare, pra ata perdorin te gjitha format qe te kene njerez te qendrueshem ketu qe te ndjekin veprimtarite e tyre.

Dritan Hila: Mos harrojme se ne e kemi tradite. Mbiemrat Harasani do te thote Horasani.

Olsi Jazexhi: Ne diten e Sulltan Nevruzit, pak media e njoftuan. Keta muxhahedinet iraniane shkaktuan kaos ne Kryegjyshaten Boterore Bektashiane. Si duket nxiten policine shqiptare dhe u arrestuan dy gazetare iraniane qe vete baba Mondi i kishte ftuar qe te mbulonin ceremonine. Ky ishte nje incident qe mediat tona e kane njoftuar pak. Perpara disa javesh ish presidenti i Shqiperise Rexhep Mejdani shkoi ne Teheran per nje konference per Naim Frasherin. Keta e sulmuan ish presidentin tone dhe thane se po e rekruton Irani. Kur Top channeli perpara disa javesh nxorri tre defektore ne emisionin Fiks Fare, te cilet tregonin se si keta abuzohen dhe kercenohen nga kjo organizate, e cila i ben presion qe keta te vazhdojne xhihadin. Keta sulmuan Top Channelin dhe thane se Top Channeli u ble nga Irani. Keta po kercenojne lirine e fjales dhe mendimit ne Shqiperi. Shqiperia i solli, por kjo eshte shume gje e keqe. Keta shpesh po kalojne limitet se pse kane ardhur ne Shqiperi. Keta po futen dhe po behen pjese e debatit tone dhe po hapin histeri edhe kunder Iranit, duhet ta themi kete gje. Ngelen duke sulmuar zyrtaret e ambasades iraniane, institucionet por tani po sulmojne edhe teqete dhe qendrat fetare sikurse eshte Kryegjyshata Bektashiane. Ky eshte problem sepse keta po fusin hundet ne ceshtjet tona. Nuk eshte vetem problemi me Iranin.

Ermir Gjinishi: Rasti i Sulltan Nevruzit eshte i rende, me e rende eshte qe mediat nuk e dhane.

Olsi Jazexhi: Keta tani po nderhyjne ne politiken tone. Po lobizojne dhe po mundohen qe te blejne politikane qe te lobizojne per ata./Gazeta Impakt

Mojahedin threat for Albania – debate in the European Parliament (aka MEK, MKO, NCRI, Rajavi cult …)

پارلمان اروپا چلسه تهیدات مجاهدین خلق برای آلبانی

Below is the debate that was organized at the headquarters of the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on 10 April 2018, which has terrified the Iranian jihadists of Albania into attacking the participants of this debate in their outlets and their paid for published writing.

The debate below was organized by MEPs Ana Gomes and Patricia Lalonde. European MPs demanded that through this debate, the European Union’s political environment should be alerted to the cultic, terrorist, deceitful and deceptive nature of the Iranian terrorist organization which is sheltering in Albania. In the event, French MP Patricia Lalonde and Portuguese MP Ana Gomes talked about their experiences with this terrorist group in Iraq and Europe and the concern that they have about the penetration of this group into the offices of the European Union.

Dr. Nicola Pedde, director of the Institute for Global Studies in Italy, examined the deceptive and deceiful methods of the Mojahedin group and the Fake News it produces, and the pressures and threats that this group poses for Italy, Italian businesses, Albania and Europe’s relations with Iran.

Dr. Olsi Jazexhi, director of the Free Media Institute, presented the situation of the Iranian Mojahedin in Albania, the threat they pose for media freedom, intellectual freedom, and religious tolerance in Albania. Dr. Jazexhiu showed how the Mojahedin have launched a recruiting campaign of politicians and citizens in Albania, how they commit calls for terrorism, punishable by law in the Republic of Albania, and how they continuously produce Fake News to threaten and terrorize Albanian public opinion. He pointed out that the Mojahedin do not want to integrate into Albanian society as other migrants do, but live instead in paramilitary compounds for jihadist purposes.

Migena Balla, a lawyer based in Tirana, explained her experience with Mojahedin dissociates, people who want to abandon jihad and deradicalize, but who are, unfortunately, not supported by the Albanian state and are labelled and threatened as ‘Iranian agents’ by the MEK terrorist organization if they behave like free citizens or contact their family members in Iran. She showed the psychological pressure and slavery that Mujahideen force on their members who threaten them and keep them isolated from the wider world.

Anne Khodabandeh, director of Open Minds organization and consultant in the field of deradicalization in Great Britain, exposed the cultic and deceptive nature of the Mojahedin and the manipulative methods they are using in Albania and have used before in Iraq, and the threat that the Mojahedin pose for the Albanian public.

The debate was attended by some former Mojahedin who have abandoned jihad and deradicalized, several European journalists and security experts who also participated in the debate. The debate can be followed in the links below. This open debate was attacked by the Mojahedin in their outlets and in some media in Albania, accused of being a prelude to terrorist attacks against the Mojahedin in Albania. However, the Mojahedin failed to intimidate the participants in the debate and to stop their freedom to discuss the aggressive and terrorist nature of the Mojahedin organization:

Albanian media fooled by MEK ‘misdirection’ (aka Mojahedin Khalq, Rajavi cult, MKO, NCRI …)
 
MEK leader Maryam Rajavi (who took over after the death of the cult leader Massoud Rajavi)

In Albania last week, two Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK) members asked permission from their commanders to leave their base, Camp Ashraf Three in Manza, to visit the graves of MEK buried on the outskirts of Tirana. After leaving the camp they travelled to the UNHCR in Tirana to ask for refuge. They are now living among over two hundred other dissociated members in Tirana.

فبرستان موقت مجاهدین خلق فرقه مریم رجوی در تیرانا آلبانیGraves of MEK buried on the outskirts of Tirana

This event tells us several disturbing things about the MEK in Albania.

First, that MEK members must ask permission for an activity as simple as visiting a graveyard. Second, that members are trying to escape the group. Conditions inside Camp Ashraf Three are difficult to independently ascertain. It is a closed camp. Not even government agencies such as security services and customs are allowed inside. The UNHCR cannot freely visit and inspect the premises. But according to conversations with dissociated members in Albania, it seems the residents are suffering the same conditions as they did in Iraq. There they were held in conditions of modern slavery and forced to undertake work for the group with no pay. Every aspect of their everyday lives was dictated by the leader Maryam Rajavi (who took over after the death of the cult leader Massoud Rajavi); who they spoke with, what they believed in and even what they ate and wore.

The event also alerts us to the fact that many MEK are dying in Albania. According to dissociated members speaking anonymously, there are three times as many deaths by natural causes in Albania as there were in Iraq. In Iraq the MEK excuse was “no doctors”. It would be interesting to discover what the MEK excuse is now.

One reason, of course, is that many of the MEK are elderly, many are sick. The average age of MEK members is above 60. At this age most people would be looking forward to a comfortable and relaxed retirement, to allow the younger generation to take over their work. Not the MEK. They have no younger generation after forced divorces and the removal of children left an ageing polity. Members must work until they die. Recruitment has proved extremely difficult because the group is hated by almost all Iranians. As a result, the MEK resorts to deceptive recruitment and coercive control for maintaining members.

One aspect of this deception is that rather than being ‘refugees’ as the MEK claim, the members have legal status in Albania. The government of Iraq did not allow them refugee status in Iraq because they are terrorists. They were brought to Albania by the UNHCR without travel documents; each migrant was given a piece of paper stating, ‘on humanitarian grounds’. Similarly, the government of Albania does not allow the MEK members or ex-members to be given either refugee status or residence or work permits. The secret agreement between Albania, the US and the MEK leader struck in 2013 included the provision for de-radicalisation once the members arrived in Tirana. This did not happen; the earmarked budget remains untouched in the American embassy, the MEK remain radicalised for terrorism.

The graveyard also raises another disturbing issue. There are sixteen public graves. It is reported that many others have since died but the MEK now buries them inside Camp Ashraf Three. It has already been ascertained that independent investigation cannot take place there, so it is not known how many graves there are. In Iraq there were hundreds.

The number of graves matters. When the US army detained the MEK in 2003, there were 3,800 members. (See  RAND Corporation – The  Mujahedin-e Khalq  in Iraq A Policy Conundrum, Summary xiii.) Over the next fifteen years, attrition of members through dissociation, conflict, deaths by natural causes, suicide and murder meant that when the UNHCR brought the last group of MEK to Albania in September 2016, the total number relocated was 2,901 individuals with 2,745 remaining at the end of that year. Since then well over two hundred have left; some departed Albania, around two hundred remain destitute in the country.

However, according to a report from US Senator Robert Torricelli, an official representative of the MEK, there are currently over four thousand MEK in Camp Ashraf Three. Where did the extra numbers come from? Are these MEK or are they the widows and orphans of killed Daesh members which investigative journalist Gjergji Thanasi discovered were destined to be the next controversial influx of undesirables dumped on Albania by the Americans. Have some already arrived?

Thanasi made the discovery while investigating import permit irregularities linked to the construction of MEK’s closed Camp Ashraf Three. This led to the further discovery that MEK is not registered for tax and does not conform to any Albanian law or customs or morals. And since the MEK members are not registered anywhere – they have no identification documents, have no work permits and pay no taxes – they could be anyone. The four thousand residents of Camp Ashraf Three – with its small-arms firing range, reinforced concrete armoury, three-meter wall and guard turrets – could be literally anyone.

Yet instead of investigating this disturbing situation, with some notable exceptions, Albania’s media have seen fit to uncritically publish the MEK’s defamatory statements aimed at silencing critics and diverting attention from their criticisms. When confidence tricksters do this, it is called ‘misdirection’; divert the attention of the target while they are robbed. When the MEK do it, it is called politics.

If it was the intention of some Albanian media outlets to politicise the MEK presence in the country, and by doing so bring the conflict between America, Israel and Saudi Arabia with Iran, to Tirana, then they have succeeded. However, it is surely not the role of an independent, objective media to act as a mouthpiece for any side. It is far more fitting for serious journalism to investigate the serious and evidenced allegations of human rights abuses, modern slavery, tax evasion, people trafficking, political corruption and facilitating terrorism which are levelled against the MEK, and report the facts to their country’s citizens.

Fact-Finding Mission to Rescue Separated MEK Unearths Profound Security Issues

Anne Khodabandeh of Iran-Interlink visited Albania twice for a fact-finding mission in November and December. The fact-finding mission was to investigate the situation of separated members of the MEK and to see what needed to be done to help them and others who will be separating in future. Anne was also invited to speak in a workshop about her work as an expert in prevention and de-radicalisation of violent extremism and terrorism. Khodabandeh works as ‘Open Minds’under the UK government’s Prevent Duty programme.

During her humanitarian mission during which she spoke to many separated members about their experiences and difficulties, Khodabandeh also discovered a great deal of disconcerting information in regard to the MEK’s activities in Albania. Some of this information has already been made public through various written pieces and media interviews and television reportsfrom Tirana. This concerns the MEK actively recruiting Albanian youth [also], links with theAlbanian mafia and plans to move the members to an isolated camp.

However, Anne Khodabandeh went on to brief British and American security services about the various security issues which have arisen as a direct result of the MEK’s presence in Albania.

On Tuesday, following a meeting on Monday between the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the EU Parliament on Monday and Ditmir Bushati, Albania’s foreign affairs minister, Khodabandeh was able to brief officials in European Parliament buildings who have direct concern for Albanian affairs. They acknowledged that this information would be helpful in appraising Albania’s efforts to join the European Union.

Warning: MEK moving members to a remote and isolated camp in Albania (aka Mojahedin Khalq Rajavi cult)

تیرانا آلبانی مجاهدین خلق فرقه رجوی تروریسم فساد قاچاق

For three days now, the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi cult) in Albania has been relocating its members to a remote and isolated camp in Albania which they have called the ‘Ashraf Three’ base after Camp Ashraf, the main MEK garrison in Iraq. The new base is surrounded by high walls and barbed wire to prevent the members from escaping.

Since a long time ago the Rajavi cult has been covertly establishing facilities far away from Tirana, or any other town or city, to which it can move its members and separate them from the outside world. The aim is to exert maximum control over them to enable further brainwashing them without interference. A remote and isolated place similar to Camp Ashraf in Iraq is an ideal place for coercive psychological manipulation because it allows the leaders to control the followers both physically and mentally.

At present, the MEK members in Tirana enjoy some limited access to the outside world. This is not tolerable for the cult. The cult leader Maryam Rajavi wants her followers captive all the time. If they have free access to the outside world they will realize they are continually being told lies and they will discover that there is a way out.

The method of controlling the members inside the MEK is mind manipulation which requires an isolated area from which the members cannot escape and gradually people forget about the free world and accept their lives in there.

Cults like the MEK do not allow their members access to uncensored news or information. If they are moved to this new base the situation will be even worse than it was for them in Iraq since they now know a lot more than they did before about the outside world and therefore the internal pressure and suppression will be more severe.

The cult has also forced members to sign documents to swear that they wish to move to the new place willingly and voluntarily and they have no right to leave the place ever. They are told that this is for their own safety and security which is not correct. In this way they are giving away their rights and freedom for the rest of their lives.

The members have also been given promises of excellent facilities and services which are all lies and even if any such privileges existed these do not replace family relations and contact with the outside world which the cult is denying.

For instance, is it not worse that the members will not have access to the internet and will not be able to contact their families? In Rajavi’s world one has to live isolated from the world and only listen to the cult leaders.

Sahar Family Foundation urges all humanitarian activists and organizations around the world to prevent this human catastrophe from happening and rescue these people from being deceived into a lifelong prison.
