• Sarah Lazare, In These Times, December 11 2018:... She has also repeatedly vocalized her support for the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), alongside John Bolton, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich. With virtually no legitimacy within Iran, the MEK is a favorite among neocons because it aggressively lobbies for U.S. military confrontation with Iran, and arguing that its head, Maryam Rajavi, is the rightful leader of Iran. The organization ...

  • James Carden with Dr. Trita Parsi, The Nation, December 06 2018:... The MeK is of little use if the objective is regime change, due to their immense unpopularity in Iran, the Trump administration seems to believe that they can be helpful for regime collapse and a potential Civil War, mindful of this terrorist organization’s extensive experience in sabotage, terrorism, assassinations, and even regular warfare. The MeK is a violent terrorist cult ...

  • Various sources, December 02 2018:... Dear Mr SOKOL BALLA and the Vision Plus TV in Albania, I suggest that the next time you want to report about the MEK, it would be better to ask them about their past, about forced divorces, working with Saddam Hussein, and imprisonment and torture inside Camp Ashraf. And in addition, invite investigative delegations to

Saber has picked on every paragraph and commented and posed questions to the MEK. Some are as follows: 1. Why is it that these Germans are nearer to you than your own families who are not allowed to visit ...

  • Kaveh Mousavi, Patheos, November 24 2018:...  Given the MEK’s long record of terrorism, human rights abuses, and murder of US citizens, one would think that senior American officials like Giuliani, Pompeo, and Bolton wouldn’t go near the MEK, let alone fraternize with its members or take its fees. But when it comes to Iran, the usual rules don’t apply. Even when the MEK was on the terrorist list, the group operated freely in Washington ...

Reports from inside camp say people are still talking with each other saying ‘We accepted the Internal Revolution by agreeing that the ideological leader [Rajavi] cannot sin because he is a saint. That’s what we signed up to. But we didn’t sign that John Bolton is the ideological leader ...

  • Nejat Society, November 21 2018:... Merat suggests that the MKO’s allegations about defectors are false because “the testimony of these recent defectors follows earlier reports from groups such as Human Rights Watch, which reported former members witnessed “beatings, verbal and psychological abuse, coerced confessions, threats of execution and torture that in two cases led to death”.” [4] The guardian correspondent lists ...

  • RT, November 21 2018:...  Meet People’s Mujahedin of Iran, also known as the MEK, whose recent gatherings were graced by the likes of Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton and the US president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Quite a guest list for an organization that started as an Iranian Marxist-Leninist armed group trying to oust the US-backed shah along with the Ayatollah. After falling out with the new government in Iran ...

  • Ty Joplin, Albawaba, November 18 2018:... Khodabandeh admits that he had a difficult time reintegrating into society, as he struggled to rid himself of the constraints the MEK forces upon its members. He forbade himself from watching television, and did not know the extent of Iraq’s crimes against Iranians during the Iran-Iraq War. But Khodabandeh considers himself lucky; he was able to leave the group while thousands are still trapped inside ...

  • Jonathan Manthorpe, i politics, November 17 2018:... Bolton, Pompeo and others in the Trump regime seem to be going down the same quagmire path with a strange Iranian exiled dissident group called the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or MEK. MEK has a turbulent history. It was founded in the 1960s in opposition to the shah of Iran and was part of the Islamic Revolution that overthrew him in 1979. MEK quickly fell out with the new regime ...

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani ...
