They say she is lying. “What she means is ‘do as I say’, and if you don’t she invents an excuse why you shouldn’t get paid. Such as, accusing you of talking to your mother and father and saying ‘therefore, you are an agent of the Iranian ...

  • Trump_Rouhani_Regime Change MEKMassoud Khodabandeh, Huffpost, September 18 2017:... While it is by no means clear that Donald Trump actually wants war with Iran – given the huge risks involved for the whole region – his strategy of brandishing the threat to destroy the JCPOA is certainly an attention-grabbing negotiating tactic. So too is brandishing the MEK as a terrorist threat against Iran. It is one of the cards which the anti-Iran pundits feel they can .

  • Iran 5+1 2015mux, Global Research, September 18 2017:... The cult, the Mojahedin-e Khalq or MEK, i.e the People’s Jihadis, is now pushing a line that something sinister is going on at the Parchin military base. The UN inspectors visited it in 2015 and are not interested in going there again. The Non-Proliferation Treaty excluded inspections of military facilities at US and USSR insistence, and the JCPOA followed that legal tradition ...

  • Tellerson_Mojahedin_Khalq_Rajavi_Cult_ISIS_ISIL_TerrorismDan Kovalik, Huffington Post (Huffpost), July 04 2017:... As the London Guardian notes, the MEK has “claimed responsibility for murdering thousands of Iranians” since 1981 (my friends in Iran put the figure of those killed at 17,000); supported the seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Iran in 1979 and the holding of the American hostages; joined Saddam Hussein in fighting Iran during the Iran-Iraq war; and killed at least six Americans during the 1970s ...

  • Financial tribune, Tehran, August 01 2017:... Rezaei called into question the US courts’ claims regarding Iran’s role in terrorism and seizure of huge sums of money for that matter. “Iran has been a victim of terrorism in a number of cases where the US was directly involved,” he said, promising that it is Iran that would take action against the US for damages caused by its backing for terrorists. Iran says 17,000 of its citizens, of which 12,000 fell victim to the terrorist Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization, have been killed in terrorist attacks claimed by organization ...

  • Michael Rubin, AEIdeas, July 20 2017:... Those who embrace the MKO as a viable alternative — or even a tool — toward regime change do as much harm to the cause of Iranian freedom as those who embrace the Islamic Republic’s so-called reformers. While the MKO tend to dismiss any criticism as pro-regime propaganda, the simple facts are these: The MKO have, at best, only a miniscule following inside Iran. This is because they sided with Iran’s enemies during the ...

  • Dr, Mehrdan Khonsari, Huffington Post, July 20 2017:... This sorry state of affairs descends to the ridiculous when a number of leading US political figures such as Senator John McCain, Mayor Rudi Giuliani and Ambassador John Bolton accept dubious speaking engagements and openly call for the overthrow of the Iranian regime, expressing their unswerving support for a much-despised cult organisation (the Mojahedin Khalq or MEK). It is interesting to note that while ...

The MEK is a weird political cult built around a husband and wife team of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi. It has been guilty of numerous terrorist acts and was on the U.S. government’s formal list of terrorist organizations until February 2012. The group ...

  • Gary Sick Columbia UniversityThe Iranist, July 16 2017:... I don’t know how much influence the Mojahideen Al-Khalq has. One question that is asked often but has no answer is, “Where is all that money coming from?” The MEK is paying $50,000 to $100,000 for people to deliver a speech that basically preaches their message of violent overthrow of the Iranian government. We would understand the MEK better if we understood the sources of its revenue ...

MKO terrorists fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq and were given a camp by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. They fought on the side of Saddam during the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-88). They were also involved in the bloody repression of Shiite Muslims in ...
