It’s a mistake to treat the MEK as a normal opposition group

Posted on: 2019/02/27

Anne Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, February 27 2019:… It is a mistake to approach the MEK as a normal opposition. Indeed, quoting MEK members is like giving a platform to Flat Earthers or Creationists. It is not balanced reporting. The MEK is a unique entity. Not an opposition, not a ‘group’ or ‘organization’, descriptions which imply a certain kind of accountable system and order. 

Maryam Rajavi (Mojahedin Khalq, MEK leader) just doesn’t get it does she

Anne Khodabandeh (Singleton), February 10 2019:… Her desperate efforts to stay visible – parading on stage in glamorous outfits before paid speakers and audience – expose her ego rather than her leadership. As de facto leader of the MEK, Rajavi has successfully carved out a niche for the mercenary MEK in the anti-Iran front – acting out the silent wishes of America, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who might proclaim an interest in regime change against Iran, but who cannot necessarily do the dirty deeds. By continually insisting on her propaganda events she is overstepping her mandate: the MEK’s role is to get paid, do the work, then disappear.

Albanian students! Go to Paris! Don’t let your political leaders take all the MEK freebies!

Anne Khodabadeh (Singleton): At this point you may expect this blogger to tut and warn against such bribery and deception. But no. If Albania’s political class and its media are happy to take money and favours from Rajavi, why not her citizens. Why should Pandeli Majko and Elona Gjebrea and a lot of others take advantage of the MEK’s generosity, and not the poor citizens of the country.

Bolton’s plots against Iran involved MEK terrorism

Posted on: 2019/01/18

Anne Khodabandeh (Blog), January 18 2019:… Since 2017, Bolton had used the MEK to create the groundwork for his plan. The MEK have tried to whitewash their past. Partly by propaganda but also partly be eliminating troublesome members or ex members such as Mohammad-Reza Kolahi Samadi and Malek Sharai.So far as possible, MEK have performed or […]

MEK paid 800,000 Euros to right wing Vox – Why?

Posted on:

The MEK paid around 800,000 Euros to an extreme right-wing political party in Spain. How does this fit with Maryam Rajavi’s claims of democracy and feminism? It should be understood that MEK would never pay a penny of its own money for anything except its own benefit. The group is amply paid for and supported […]

Steve McCabe’s Crocodile Tears

Posted on:

Labour MP Steve McCabe joined other MPs in the House of Commons to debate the situation of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe who is in prison in Iran. The debate centered on Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s human rights which appear to have been violated by the Iranian judiciary. Of course, many fine words were spoken and the proper sympathy expressed over […]
