• Tirana_today_Mafia_shqiptare_ndihmon_muxhehedinëtTirana Today, Tirana, Albania, November 23 2017:... In Albania there is a silent threat to all of Europe from a group of three thousand Mojahedin (MEK) who are accommodated in a camp in our country. In an article published in Huffingtonpost, it is said that there is a risk that the MEK will cooperate with the Albanian Mafia, and have even tried to recruit Albanian youth for their own purposes. For this reason ...

  • Massoud Khodabandeh i pergjigjet shpifjeve te MEK-ut ne Gazeta TemAMassoud Khodabandeh, Huffpost, November 21 2017:... But a more sinister turn of events is taking place right now. The MEK is moving over 2,500 members to a remote camp in the north of Albania far away from any local communities. This desperate act serves several purposes. One is to recreate the isolation the cult enjoyed in Iraq where coercion and brainwashing were a daily occurrence - the new camp is called ‘Ashraf Three’...

  • 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 .

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • MEP Gérard Deprez with Maryam RajaviMassoud Khodabandeh,, Huffpost, June 28 2017:...  Like many statements and petitions over the years which mention the MEK this looks like fake news. Anyway, it would have been much easier to pass this off as genuine if Deprez had also published the names of the 265 signatories. As parliamentarians, it is doubtful they would feel endangered by publicly announcing their views in this way. Unless, of course, they had spotted the ...

  • Massoud Khodabandeh,  Huffpost, June 27 2017:... Perhaps the time is finally ripe for a new appraisal of what zero tolerance means for France. The MEK’s messages promoting violent regime change should no longer be tolerated. President Emmanuel Macron’s new centrist movement has won a large majority in the French parliament giving him a strong hand to play. He already revealed himself to be a shrewd and ...
