• 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Daniel Larison, The American Conservative, November 13 2018:... Daniel Benjamin, who was then the head of counter-terrorism at the state department, told me that the US decided to remove the MEK from the list of foreign terrorist organisations not because it believed it had abandoned violence, but to “avoid them all getting killed” if it remained in Iraq[bold mine-DL]. After the MEK was no longer designated a terrorist group, the US ...

  • Arron Merat, The Guardian, London, 09 november 2018:... When we spoke recently, Soltani accused Maryam Rajavi of helping Massoud to abuse female MEK members over the years. “[Massoud] Rajavi thought that the only achilles heel [for female fighters] was the opposite sex,” Soltani told me. “He would say that the only reason you women would leave me is a man. So, I want all of your hearts.” Soltani, who was one of three women to speak ...

Based on what John Bolton said at the Villepinte rally in Paris ­last year – that the overthrow of the Iranian government will not take 40 years – Rajavi told her people to “wait, don’t leave, Bolton knows something!” This has caused something of a dilemma for Rajavi since the 40th anniversary is fast approaching and there is not a sign of Iran falling. Apparently, John Bolton ...

  • Marwa Osman, Alahed News, Beirut, October 08 2018:... US President Donald Trump’s rhetoric about supporting the Iranian people has always been void, but promoting someone with Bolton’s views and connections to the highest level of government shows just how devious that rhetoric is. Whenever Bolton talks about supporting “the Iranian opposition,” these cultists are the people he’s talking about.  When he talks ...

One of the best jokes was that this was indeed a place where Iran could sweep its nuclear programme under the carpet! This, say commentators, is not the first time Netanyahu and MEK ...

  • Ty Joplin, Albawaba, October 06 2018:... The MEK, more than being a terrorist cult, militia or pro-democratic freedom fighters, seems to be a brutal tool of realpolitik, a blunt instrument to be used by the U.S. and its allies in the Gulf to antagonize their geopolitical rival, Iran.To understand the this, Al Bawaba spoke with Massoud Khodabandeh, who was one of the groups most senior leaders for decades, before ...
