Where is Albania heading to?

Posted on: 2020/02/13

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, February 13 2020:… The Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCRI, NLA, or better known as the Rajavi cult) had a military base in Iraq facilitated by Saddam Hussein and they actively participated against their own county alongside the enemy in the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war. This was alongside a terrorist campaign waged inside Iran in the early 80s which claimed 12,000 lives. They also joined with Saddam’s army to suppress the 1991 uprisings in the north and south of Iraq. The cult has also a disturbing record of abusing the human rights of its own members who are brainwashed and isolated in a closed camp, first in Iraq and now in Albania. Where is Albania heading to? 

Maryam Rajavi mirrors Chalabi

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, October 10 2019:… Now the Iranian Maryam Rajavi, leader of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCR, NLA, Rajavi Cult) is playing (and has played for a long time) the same role as the Iraqi Ahmad Chalabi, this time in relation to Iran. On Monday September 30, 2019 in Washington, the group, which has close ties with the warmongers of the White House, announced baseless details blaming the missile drone attack against Saudi oil facilities on Iran. Without any evidence, the MEK claimed that the decision for the attack was taken by the Supreme National Security Council, presided over by President Rouhani and with the presence of Foreign Minister Zarif.

How has the MEK – Rajavi cult – resisted disintegration

Posted on: 2019/08/27

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, August 27 2019:… The Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, NCR, NLA, Rajavi Cult), an armed opposition to the Islamic Republic of Iran, faced dramatic changes after Iraq was invaded by US forces in 2003, and Saddam Hussein, the only state sponsor of the leader Massoud Rajavi, was toppled. John Bolton, who served as the US government representative to the UN at the time, was the key lobbyist for the MEK. He was and is a regular paid attendee of Maryam Rajavi’s annual meetings. Several others, like Bolton, also desire to intensify conflict with Iran for the political and economic benefit of an elite rather than in the national interests of the US.

White House crumbling under the weight of Bolton’s ambitions

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, Iran Interlink, May 24 2019:… Bolton believes that Massoud (or Maryam) Rajavi of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi cult), just like Ahmed Chalabi during the war against Iraq, can be beneficial in creating excuses and repeating the White House’s wishes under the banner of a so-called opposition group. The Rajavi terrorist cult has always been ready to offer its treacherous services to any bidder. And Bolton, after Saddam Hussein, is eager to use them.

MEK the most hated in Iran’s history

Posted on: 2019/05/13

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, May 13 2019:… Since I left the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK, MKO, Rajavi terrorist cult) and came back to Iran in 2003, I have realized that this cult is now much more hated by Iranians than the Tudeh Party, and these Iranians include every opposition to the Islamic Republic inside and outside the country. The MEK assassinated thousands of innocent people, they cooperated with the attacking enemy Saddam Hussein against the defenders of the borders, and far more than the Tudeh Party do not believe in Iran’s national security and interests.

International Liberty Association, MEK’s so-called charity breaches rules of the UK Charity Commission

Posted on: 2019/03/14

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, March 14 2019:… A charity organisation registered in London called the “International Liberty Association” has launched a widespread campaign under the title “Support the Voice of the People” to collect public donations for a television channel belonging to the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (aka MEK, MKO, NCR, NLA, Rajavi Cult). London is well known for having been a haven for the money laundry activities of the MEK over many years.

When will Maryam Rajavi disappear?

Posted on: 2019/02/27

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, February 27 2019:… Massoud Rajavi, the leader of the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK, MKO, NCR, …) terrorist cult, disappear after the fall of Saddam Hussein in Iraq in 2003. Since then no one knows about his whereabouts; and his wife Maryam practically leads the organization.

What benefit might the MEK have for the US? (aka Rajavi cult)

Posted on: 2019/02/20

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, February 20 2019:… I have wondered why the Trump administration has moved the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK, MKO, NCR, Rajavi terrorist cult) to a remote and isolated camp in Albania to keep them intact, even though they were meant to be deprogramed and disintegrated there in the first place. I wondered what good they might be for the Trump administration now that they are more than one thousand miles away from Iran’s borders and just inside Europe.

The Proof of US Cold shoulder to Maryam Rajavi

Posted on: 2019/02/12

Ebrahim Khodabandeh, February 12 2019:… everyone in the west and especially the United States clearly knows how this cult is hated by Iranians. Personalities such as the Secretary of State are well aware that getting near to this notorious cult will not only bring them no credit, but on the contrary would cost their own credibility.The Trump administration might not mind using the MEK covertly for various purposes against the Islamic Republic of Iran, but surely not at the cost of losing its international reputation.
