Ali Safavi and MEK Fake News Exposed In Albania

1- MEK unleashes Ali Safavi for media blitz in Albania

25 October 2019

In the video above Dr Olsi Jazexhi comments on the events involving the Iranian Mojahedin in Albania on October 24, 2019. He tells how MEK brought Saddam Hussein’s commander Ali Safavi from America. MEK Commander Safavi has given several interviews elsewhere in Top Channel, in which Ali Safavi has tried to defend the Albanian government and Ardi Veliu, saying that the statement about the Iranian cell was made by Albanians and not MEK, thereby denying the statements of the Opinion show. Interior Minister Besfort Lamallari and Artan Hoxha told Albanians that MEK maintains an intelligence service in Albania to inform the Albanian authorities about Iran. Safavi has tried to limit the damage caused by this legal and diplomatic scandal. But in an interview with ABC News, terrorist Commander Ali Safavi has attacked former Mojahedin members who have abandoned terrorism and escaped from the Manze camp. Ali Safavi has accused Gholam Zadeh Shekari, Hassan Hayrani (Hajrani), Rahman Mohammadi of being Iranian agents. These former terrorists, who are now making civilian lives for themselves – marrying and building families, have been attacked by Commander Safavi who, while in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, would have brought them under control, is now urging General Sander Lleshi to arrest and imprison them.

The video also mentions the resignation of a Durres judge yesterday who was due to try Commander Behzad Safari, who has been indicted for defamation by Albanian journalist Gjergji Thanasi. In the video analysis above, Dr Jazexhi thinks that MEK made a statement via Ardi Veliu to settle their scores with the group’s defectors in Tirana. Ardi Veliu’s statement and Ali Safavi’s media attacks have nothing to do with Iran but with rumors that MEK is targeting those who do not want to continue as terrorists in Albania. The analyst appeals to Agron Sojati and Prime Minister Rama’s Office for Deradicalization to de-radicalize these Iranian terrorists and prevent the Albanian state from being taken hostage by a former terrorist organization.

2- Commander Ali Safavi accuses MEK deserters of being Iranian agents

25 October 2019

On October 24, senior Mojahedin Commander Ali Safavi, who following an attack against Iran by state police using fake news of terrorist cells, called in more Albanian media to the MEK headquarters in Manze, by issuing more attacks against Iran. But the coordinated attack between the ministry of General Lleshi and the Iranian Mojahedin has not stopped. On ABC News’ Klodian Alliance’s Gülenist television, Ali Safavi has also attacked MEK defectors in Tirana, or more precisely those former Mojahedin who have abandoned terrorism against Iran and have decided to lead a civilian life.

MEK doesn’t look like a legitimate group (Mojahedin Khalq, MKO, NCRI, Maryam Rajavi cult, …)

Ali Safavi has denounced as Iranian agents some of the deradicalized Mojahedin who live in Tirana and who have given interviews to the BBC, Al-Jazeera, Channel 4, which have revealed to the world the crimes that exist inside the MEK jihadist camp. Commander Safavi, who would have beheaded these members in Iraq, has already labelled Gholam Zadeh Shekari, Hassan Hayrani (heirani), Rahman Mohammadi as agents of Iran.

Asked by ABC news about the attack that Catholics Sander Lleshi and Ardi Veliu have launched against the Iranian state, he is quoted as saying that MEK did not know anything about the attack:

“We were not aware of the information that the director of state police presented… Albanian law enforcement agents should be commended for their hard work, gathering information about that network… We only learned of it yesterday from the media that broadcast it, but we did know that of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Forces, for example, one of the people of that network, Alireza Naghashzadeh, were employees of the Ministry of Intelligence. We knew it, but we didn’t know he was part of the network that went public yesterday. We have general information and have provided information on other people of the regime in Albania in the past. Naghashzadeh wasn’t the only one. There are others, including Gholam Zadeh Shekari, Hassan Hayrani (Hajrani), Rahman Mohammadi. We know that they are in Albania but not where they live. And our message to the Albanian authorities is that these people are agents of the regime and should be arrested and expelled from Albania because their duty is to prepare attacks on opponents of the Iranian regime, “Ali Safavi said.

3- Former terrorist Commander Ali Safavi accuses Iran of terrorism

24 October 2019

Media close to the government set up public opinion with a sensational statement with no facts or evidence but only sentences, names, and a mistake ridden and spooky reading where the Director of the State Police, Ardi Veliu, made public a character chart of people that he claimed intended to disrupt the Ashura celebration in March 2018 in Albania.

America is turning Albania into a safe haven for international Jihadism: an interview with Dr. Olsi Jazexhi

They spoke too with names and surnames about terrorists and drug traffickers, but there were only words, no evidence or concrete facts about the persons mentioned and labeled as part of an Iranian terrorist cell which wanted to attack the Mojahedin in Albania.

Immediately after Veliu’s statement, the media received their daily feed served by the “chiefs” and made “gossip” on all Albanian national television channels. Of course, not everyone ate this soap.

Exactly one day after this statement and despite its overwhelming exhaustion with endless lies and allegations they would not miss the lies or allegations of the MEK.

What is most striking is how it is possible that so easily a former terrorist organization that up to  2012 killed Kurds and Arabs, is now so easily spreading fake news and attacking their country’s embassy when they themselves admit that they were unaware of any attack that could be threatened in Albanian territory, near Manza, against a group of over 3,000 MEK members.

Another strange fact is how it is possible that a media channel like the channel that MEK accused a year ago of being bought by Iran now interviews Mojahedin terrorists.

Albanians React to MEK Fake News – State Police Fallen Prey

Ali Safavi, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, told Top Channel that: “After stopping that terrorist act and expelling Iranian diplomats, the people in the camp are safer. But we believe that as long as we have Iranian embassies and diplomatic missions operating, the danger of terrorist acts by the Iranian regime is inevitable.”

“It was the QUDS forces, the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and the Foreign Ministry, responsible for that terrorist operation against us and the Albanians. They work together to engage in terrorist acts outside Iran. And of course, the Iranian diplomatic missions and mainly the embassies were used to facilitate and coordinate these terrorist acts. We recall that after the terrorist act was averted during our celebrations, the Albanian government took a courageous act to deport the Iranian ambassador to Albania and his deputy, as involved in the plot, “he said…

…However, as the Albanian people say, “even the greatest miracle only lasts three days” and after two days all this zealotry will be extinguished and everyone will act as if nothing happened here, where in fact the Albanian State Police should apologize to the public for this fake news.

4- Maryam Rajavi and Ardi Veliu produce Fake News against Iran

23 October 2019

Albanian media reports that Ardi Veliu, director of the state police, has just announced in a press conference that the Albanian state has discovered an Iranian terrorist cell in Albania.

Remember: MEK was an American excuse to invade Iraq

“An active terrorist cell of the foreign operations unit has recently been discovered in Albania. The terrorist cell is responsible for the March 2018 plan to carry out a terrorist act during the Norouz celebration, a plan that was prevented by increased state police measures thanks to accurate information”, said State Police Director General Ardi Veliu at a press conference today showing the person directing this cell and its members.

This is fake news. Ardi Veliu, who did not even know how to read the names of the Iranians, is believed to have made up the news by order from above and now looks like a joke by the terrorist group of Maryam Rajavi who is hiding in Albania and keeps thousands of disillusioned Iranian jihadists in the camp of Manza by force, fear and savagery.

Albanian Police MEK Statement Ordered by Washington

If the Albanian police have really discovered a terrorist network then they should ask the Turkish authorities to arrest these ‘terrorists’ and show the facts that they have against them. Otherwise, Maryam Rajavi’s lie, as in March 2018 that Iran had planned a terrorist attack on MEK on Norouz Day, has been denounced and deconstructed by Albanian journalists and media.

5- The Iranian terrorist cell and Maryam Rajavi as Albania’s Interior Minister

23 October 2019

In a video recording Dr Olsi Jazexhi comments on the fake news that the Albanian State Police announced on October 23, 2019, according to which Ardi Veliu stated that an Iranian terrorist cell was captured in Albania. Commenting on the pro-Mojahedin show Sokol Balla on News 24 and Blendi Fevziu’s Opinion show, he highlights how police director Ardi Veliu and Deputy Chief of Police and Interior Minister Brig. Besfort Lamallari have admitted in the broadcasts that they have no facts about the alleged Iranian terrorist group. In the Opinion show, journalist Artan Hoxha admitted in the presence of Besfort Lamallari that the Iranian Mojahedin operate a secret service in Albania – parallel to SHISH. This constitutes a violation of the Albanian Constitution and laws. The above conversation shows how the Iranian Mojahedin not only remain in Albania and will sooner or later will leave their camp and flood Albanian cities, but they have taken hostage the politics, ministries and law enforcement agencies of Albania. They play with the Albanian media and public opinion, turning Albania into their jihadist state – like Afghanistan under the Taliban and Mullah Omar.

Nobody Can Be “Comfortable” With Regime Change Involving MEK

Nobody Can Be “Comfortable” With Regime Change Involving MEKMassoud Khodabandeh, Lobe Log, August 23 2019:… So, when Giuliani says we should be “comfortable” with this group, right-minded people the world over can honestly and unequivocally answer, “No, we are not comfortable ignoring this harsh reality just because the MEK amplifies an anti-Iran message to the world, and no, we don’t believe the MEK have any kind of future in Iran”.

Nobody Can Be “Comfortable” With Regime Change Involving MEK

Nobody Can Be “Comfortable” With Regime Change Involving MEKLeaked photo of MEK’s Albanian headquarters

In 2017, John Bolton promised the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK)—wrongly, it turned out—that they would be celebrating in Tehran before the Iranian Revolution’s 40th anniversary in February 2019. This July, at the MEK’s five-day conference in Albania, keynote speaker Rudy Giuliani still insisted the MEK is a “government in exile” and claimed the MEK is “a group that should make us comfortable having regime change”.

For context, promoting a group which is universally despised by Iranians inside and outside the country as traitors already stretches credulity. There is no evidence that Iranians are calling for severe sanctions against themselves. Nor are they calling for regime change. The MEK’s only audience in this respect are a warmongering cabal of Americans, Saudis, Israelis, and British, who like to hear what they want to hear. The rest of the world just isn’t that comfortable with this bizarre, terrorist cult.

Lately, even Europe has distanced itself from lending succour to the group. The MEK no longer has free access to the European Parliament where its activists would harass the MEPs and their staff. This year the MEK was barred from holding its annual Villepinte rally in France and was also banned from rallying by Germany. As a result of this, MEK leader Maryam Rajavi has decamped from Paris to Albania and the MEK announced that Albania is the group’s new headquarters.

The move from Iraq to Albania ought to have allowed unprecedented access to Western journalists keen to investigate the honey pot around which the anti-Iran cabal buzz with excitement. They were soon disappointed, as the MEK built a de facto extra-territorial enclave in Manëz and posted armed guards to keep out unwanted attention. But although the group were physically hidden from view, they were very exposed through their cyber activities.

Although it had been known for some time that the MEK operates a click farm from Albania, it was Murteza Hussain in The Intercept who revealed how the MEK uses fake social media accounts to curate a false narrative about Iran to influence US policy. The Heshmat Alavi scandal focused media attention on what is really happening inside the MEK behind the slickly marketed brand image that Giuliani so admires. This endeavour to scrutinise the MEK has been aided by a series of photographs which were leaked from inside the MEK’s camp in Albania and published in Iran. The photos are very revealing, but in ways that the MEK probably didn’t intend or realise when they were taken. Since the MEK so zealously hides its inner world from public scrutiny, these photos offer us an unguarded glimpse into the operational and organisational life of the cult.

The fact that the photos were taken at all is significant. At first glance they could be showing a session for seniors at the local library or community centre. But we see the women are wearing military uniforms and the men are all wearing similar shirts. Some are wearing ties. This is something the MEK don’t ever do unless in a public facing role. This indicates the images have been deliberately staged for a particular external audience. Certainly they were not meant for internal consumption, but neither is this for the wider public or else they would be on the MEK’s own websites. Based on information about the MEK already in the public domain, we can assume these photos were commissioned by Maryam Rajavi as a marketing ploy to ‘sell’ the MEK brand to financiers and backers.

Nobody Can Be “Comfortable” With Regime Change Involving MEKLeaked photos showing MEK members at work

There is clearly a deliberate effort to show that the MEK are “professional” workers in this computer room. Everyone is posed looking intently at a screen. Nobody is “off duty” in the pictures; yawning, stretching, drinking coffee, the normal activities of any workers. There is no evidence of relaxed, friendly chat between co-workers, everyone looks very serious. There are no cups of coffee or snacks on the desks. No pictures of family, husbands, wives, children, pets even. No plants or flowers. In spite of the rows of desks being squashed together closely, everyone looks very isolated.

There might be nothing wrong with that. After all, employers want to see their workers busy. But organisational photographs are also about marketing a brand, which includes marketing the core values of an entity. A group which claims, as the MEK does, that it is funded by public donations to struggle for democracy and human rights would surely want to create an image in the mind of the public about transparency, effectiveness, and positivity. By way of contrast, see how Human Rights Watch advertises its work culture. Even a quick Google image search on ‘call center worker’ reveals pictures of relaxed and smiling workers rather than people who look like battery hens. This is not the image any normal company or government office would use to promote their workplace.

In the MEK’s advertising photos the workers are gender segregated. Men sit in one room, women in another. The women all wear hijab. There is no pluralism here. The use of garden chairs and workers using glasses unsuited to screen work reveals that this management doesn’t care at all about the safety, comfort or wellbeing of the workers. They are using a mixture of outdated monitors and laptops. The cables are frayed and tangled.

There is no indication that the workers are happy at their workstations or enjoying their work. Why would they be with the picture of their leader bearing down on them, as in all dictatorships, lest they forget why they are there and who is in charge? (The picture of a solitary Maryam Rajavi is a clear acknowledgement that her husband Massoud Rajavi is dead.)

The MEK’s cultic system means that decisions are imposed from the top down. This means that those decisions are only as intelligent as the leadership. What Rajavi doesn’t understand is that these photos show beyond any words that the MEK doesn’t share our values. The leader is selling unthinking, unquestioning, obedient slaves, people who won’t act or speak unless ordered to do so. And that would only be ordered if it were productive for the MEK, regardless of the needs or desires of the worker.

What these images portray are conditions of modern slavery. These are elderly people who are unable to escape this cult and are coerced into performing work for which they receive no recompense. They exist on cruelly basic accommodation and sustenance, whereby even asking for new underwear puts the petitioner under question about their loyalty to the leader and the cause. They cannot leave because in Albania they have nowhere to go, no identity documents or work permits, no money, and they do not speak the local language. And also because the Trump administration wants the MEK to be there.

So, when Giuliani says we should be “comfortable” with this group, right-minded people the world over can honestly and unequivocally answer, “No, we are not comfortable ignoring this harsh reality just because the MEK amplifies an anti-Iran message to the world, and no, we don’t believe the MEK have any kind of future in Iran”.
