Pauline Ewell , Mash Viral, January 28 2020:… At lightning speed, the State Department overturns an order prohibiting US diplomats from meeting controversial Iranian dissident groups – including a close friend with Trump World allies and previously designated a terrorist group, the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK) ). The initial memo, lit by a career State Department employee, angered Iranian congressional hawks. And the Ministry’s decision to modify its guidelines encouraged them. The group has a controversial past. For, among other things, its alleged role in the assassination of three US military officers and three other civilian contractors.MEK USA Love Affairs On and OFF. Why?

Iran Interlink, January 24 2020:… The Americans use MEK there to provoke Iran, but Iran doesn’t react. In Farsi this is a well-known scenario. Everyone knows what is happening. For the MEK it is a dream come true. This is what they have asked from the CIA before – to be able to silence ex members. Some writers have exposed dealing between the MEK and the CIA which mean that MEK have agreed to obey the order to leave Europe because this would happen anyway. In exchange, the CIA promises to make Albania safe for MEK to do what they want. According to this deal, MEK will rule Albania, not Rama. MEK will have the last word, not the government.

Dr. Dan Steinbock, FX Street, January 23 2020:… By November 2017, Bolton urged the US to have a contingency plan for a “Shah of Iran scenario” and regime change before February 2019; the 50th anniversary of the Iranian revolution. His change agent was Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), an Iranian opposition group which advocates a violent coup in Iran. In the early 2010s, the UK, EU and the US considered MEK a terrorist organization until then-State Secretary Hillary Clinton de-listed the group, to exploit it in US-led destabilization.

Daniel Moattar, Mother Jones, January 16 2020:… Trump was bragging about his tweet in Persian being the most retweeted Persian-language tweet. But much of that retweeting happens by these bots, and through these online activist cyber armies like the MKO (Rajavi Cult, MEK, NCRI, …) . Their activism, now, is basically tweeting. They have these halls of aging activists sitting behind computers and sending out tweets all day long. [On Saturday, Trump issued his first Farsi tweet: “To the brave and suffering people of Iran: from the beginning of my presidency, I have stood with you, and my government will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspirational.”] . MEK Bots In Albania Main Source Of Retweeting Donald Trump’s Tweets

James M. Dorsey, Euroasi Tmes, January 12 2020:… A litmus test of the directive by Mr. Pompeo, known to have a close relationship with Donald J. Trump, is likely to be whether the president’s personal lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani, distances himself from the controversial National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an offshoot of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, a group that was taken off the US Treasury’s list of designated terrorists several years ago. Mr. Giuliani is a frequent, well-paid speaker at gatherings of the group that has built a significant network among Western political elites. The council and the Mujahedeen openly call for regime change in Iran. Pompeo keeps MEK at arms length
Survivors of Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi Cult) in Albania, January 12 2020:… Ehsan Bidi, with his background, according to international laws and standards, he is recognised as a refugee. But unfortunately, he has been arrested and his human rights and asylum rights have been violated. He had chosen to remain in your country in the hope of finding a better and easier life because he believes he can have a good life in a law-abiding and civilized country, in line with international law, just like anyone else. Madame Secretary, we look forward to seeing your courage in administering justice in this case. We urge you not to allow the violation of the rights of anyone who has sought refuge in your country and who has been bound by and has respected all the laws of the country since the time he arrived.

Fax Web, Albania, January 11 2020:… The Prime Minister responded to this question, which included the topic of the Mojahedin Khalq Organisation (aka MEK, MKO, NCRI, …) housed in our country, saying that we are safe in the hands of the allies’ intelligence. On the issue of the Mojahedin Khalq , Rama said that the agreement with the US stipulates that this is not a political but a humanitarian decision, adding that our country has lived through dictatorship and knows what its actions mean.

Iran Interlink, January 10 2020:… After the illegal assassination of general Qassem Soleimani, videos and audios in support of president Trump flooded Farsi social media. These all turned out to be fake. The only ones that were true were MEK outlets, which genuinely support Trump. Very quickly an audio emerged from Massoud Rajavi – presumed dead – as the only Iranian who officially and publicly supported Trump and endorsed the assassination. As usual in the audio he threatens the ex-members with death. But, his message and further statements by Maryam Rajavi say this assassination is not enough. ‘Now you have bombed the convoy in Iraq you should hit them and their places in Iran and Iraq and Syria’, scream the Rajavis.

Tom Porter, Business Insider, January 10 2020:… The MEK — officially the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or the People’s Mujahideen of Iran in English — has waged war against the Islamist regime in Iran since it seized power in 1979. Formerly based in Iraq, the group is believed to have killed thousands of Iranians in terror attacks. But far away from the battlefields of the Middle East, the MEK has also waged a campaign for influence in glossy functions at diplomatic events in western capitals, successfully cultivating powerful allies in western governments. Among them are current and former officials in the top echelons of the Trump administration — including those who Trump regularly turns to advice on Iran, such as personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

Gjergji Thanasi, Gazeta Impakt, Tirana, Albania, January 07 2020:… First: we are not dealing with 3 (three) Iranians, but only with 2 (two) Iranians, namely: Mr. Seyed Mohammad Alavi Gonabadi and Mr. Firouz Baghernezhad Zenjanabi. The reader can view copies of the passports of the 2 Iranians at the link above. I challenge journalist Arsen to check the Passenger List of the Turkish Airlines plane, with which the two Iranian journalists came and left Albania. In these 2 lists there is no third Iranian citizen with the initials M.A. Second: No two Iranian journalists were arrested (Where have you honored colleagues with a copy of the arrest warrant for the journalists?!?!?!?!?). The two journalists were subjected to escort procedures and nothing more. Iranian Terrorists In Albania , Letter To Aresen Rusta Of CNA.AL .
