Nobody Can Be “Comfortable” With Regime Change Involving MEK

Posted on: 2019/08/23

Massoud 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 

The case of MEK operative Mohammad Reza Kolahi’s murder didn’t need to be a mystery

Massoud Khodabandeh, Middle East Strategy Consultants, April 14 2019:…  In July 2018 I wrote an article for the Balkans Post titled ‘MEK rebrands by assassinating unwanted members’ in which I brought up the case of Mohammad Reza Kolahi Samadi as one of many examples in which the Mojahedin Khalq have got rid of an affiliated disaffected operative to 1- Cleanse themselves of their terrorist history by eliminating the operatives; 2- Get rid of someone who has gone rogue and may potentially damage the MEK legally and socially if he decided to talk; 3- Make an excuse to attach yet another murder in the west to Iran

Maryam Rajavi’s MEK is a defunct force in Iran foreign policy

Massoud Khodabandeh, Middle East Strategy Consultants, February 25 2019:… As the following articles show, the complex issue of ‘dealing’ with Iran cannot be solved by the Trump administration or the European Union using the defunct Mojahedin Khalq (MEK) to shake a stick at the country. Iran’s government and ruling system is proving far too sophisticated for this stupid ‘regime change’ narrative. Iranians – inside and outside – don’t want that. Time for a new policy maybe; one that acknowledges facts on the ground rather than the delusion of empire.

When the Anti Iranian camp see no light at the end of the tunnel, MEK won’t sort the problem.

This week’s Iran Interlink weekly digest had a few important point I wanted to share it again with you. The controversy about using MEK as a tool is certainty not something the Anti Iran camp is not aware of.
What we don’t know about them is that “They don’t have any other tool. Hence resorting to the available ones”
What they don’t know about about is that “When you have been walking down this path of “Regime Change” for the last 40 year and still no “light at the end of the tunnel”, Review your status. YOU Are NOT IN A TUNNEL. YOU ARE IN A CAVE DEAR.
