The history of assassinations in the Cult of Rajavi

The half a century history of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ Cult of Rajavi) testifies that terror and violence are an integral part of the essence of the group. Terror is the most important tool that has always been used by the MEK, not only for the Iranian people, but also for the purpose of silencing and removing members of the organization.

Over the years, the international community continues to see the continuation of the physical removal of members of the MEK with new methods in Europe and in Albania under direct command of the group leaders.

By studying and analyzing Cults, a common cause is deduced that all destructive cults in their internal relations are subject to brainwashing and mental control. However, despite all the control measures, they are struggling with their critical members because of their inability to provide reasonable argument.

The MEK, as a notorious destructive cult, is no exception. In fact, the beginning of this cult has begun with the assassinations and has continued until now. For Taqi Shahram, who was one of the first leaders of the group, the physical removal was the best solution to the disengagement of the domestic opposition, which later his legacy was inherited by Massoud Rajavi. He institutionalized physical elimination of dissident members in the MEK.

The leaders of the MEK have always used this method to silence the voices of dissent inside their establishment to avoid the secondary consequences of protest and criticism which is defection and eventually revelations on the suppressive atmosphere of the group.

The method has intensified in the secretive organization of the MEK since its relocation in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, where the MEK were able to exercise any pressure on their forces. Many members of the organization were assassinated during the years in Iraq, due to their opposition to the leaders’ views, requests for departure, rejection of orders, or simply complaint against a cult-like regulation.

In all these cases, the leaders of the MEK fabricated fake scenarios such as killing in the battle fields and suicide, and it was never possible for the victims’ relatives to pursue the crimes. Even in some cases, no information was given on the victimized person, and no one was even allowed to seek information.
It may seem like a joke that after the assassination of these members, the group commanders looked for criminals. Many of the individuals listed as the ancestors of the MEK, have been assassinated by the group leaders in the internal purges of the organization, but they are now boasted as martyrs of the MEK who have been killed by Iranian or Iraqi forces. Ali Zarkesh is an example of such eliminations.

MEK the most hated in Iran’s history

Also after the occupation of Iraq by the United States, the leaders of the Cult of Rajavi repeatedly declared a number of their victims as the casualties of US missile attacks and bombs. There is a long list of people killed or injured, while many of them, especially the injured ones, were the result of tortures and cult-like suppressions. Parviz Ahmadi is a case who was killed under torture by MEK commanders but was declared as a victim of American invasion.

The assassination of members, the sudden disappearance of members in MEK camps, the prevention of visiting, and even the contact of parents with children in the camps and even the denial of the existence of such persons in the camps are some examples of the cult-like terrorist activities of the MEK in its half-a-century history.
However, during the deployment of the group at Camp Liberty in Iraq and after members were enrolled by the United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights, the group leaders were not so free hands to commit any crime. However, dissent and demands to leave were still factors to risk the life of members.

Human Rights Watch MEK Report

In fact, the heavy consequences of defection from the Cult of Rajavi made leaders keep on suppression and intimidation against their members. The consequences include testimonies of defectors on human rights violations committed by the MEK leaders, whether in the media or international courts and human rights bodies.
Now in Albania, the same procedure is the only solution to the MEK leaders against dissidents. However, they were not successful to stop the rise in defections from the group. This time, however, the organization’s scenarios for removal of members have varied slightly due to the high age of people present in the group, excuses such as illness are raised. Suspicious deaths at the headquarters of the MEK in Albania reveals new scenarios for the removal of dissatisfied members.

First of all, the suspicious deaths include those who seek to leave the group. When mental and even physical pressures are not successful, they start designing to remove the person. Because a protester, a critic and a separatist is able to spread the voice of objection and doubts over the organization to other forces and spread dissatisfaction.

History of MEK (Mojahedin Khalq, Rajavi cult, MKO, NCRI …)explains the depth of US hostility to Iran

One of the methods of physical removal of members, which is now very common in Albania, is death due to illness. In some cases, members of the group are taken to Albanian hospitals, due to illnesses but they die for reasons other than the illness. Some cases include poisoning, which according to the defectors, is a usual method used by the MEK to eliminate dissidents. Behzad Massoudi suffered a disease for many years, eventually died in Albania suspiciously, and the cause of his death was announced by the hospital as poisoning.

Sharaee Killed by MEK Albania

A paid advert by MEK (Maryam Rajavi cult) in Albanian media

The incident is another method used in Albania to remove the dissatisfied members physically. In Albania, unlike the Camp Ashraf, where excuses such as gunfire or an explosion of a grenade as a cause of death were regularly announced as the cause of deaths, causes such as drowning in the pool are reported as causes of death. Malek Sharaee in Albania, whose death was announced as drowning in the pool is an example. While this person was a Lifeguard, his death at the pool was an unpredictable scenario for those who were not even familiar with him.
Apart from the methods of murder in Albania, the investigation of specific actions in the headquarters of the MEK in the country is sometimes followed by suspicious deaths and physical expulsions. Since the early 2016, exactly during the time Maryam Rajavi was stationed in Albania, mortality rates increased in the MEK, and just in one stage death of three people, Fakhri Isfahanian, Akbar Chavoshi, and Ali Khalkhal were announced.

In the same manner, the group appears to be in a critical condition, abolishing protesters to intimidate others. All in all, those present at the headquarters of the MEK in Albania are at high risk as long as they are under the control of the leaders of the destructive cult of Rajavi. This is now happening in a European country, which, unlike the deserts of Iraq, allows us to pursue the cases.

Human rights organizations such as “Human Rights Watch“, who sent a representative in a customary way to document the allegations made by the MEK to Albania, should also be cautious to these incidents and respond in accordance with essential duty.

Open Letter

Best regards B. Chuck Grassley

Honorable President of the US Senate

According to the information released on the Internet, the PMOI is trying to hold a meeting on Wednesday, the 6th of November 2019 in Missouri by a covert organization called the Organization of Iranian American Societies. The meeting “Iran Terrorism and Warfare” takes place in the room G50 of „The Dirksen Senate“ building.

According to the information released on the Internet, the PMOI is trying to hold a meeting on Wednesday, the 6th of November 2019 in Missouri by a covert organization called the Organization of Iranian American Societies.

The meeting “Iran Terrorism and Warfare” takes place in the room G50 of „The Dirksen Senate“ building.

Now that the banner of counterterrorism in the world today is left to the United States as the country that has suffered the most from terrorism, it is expected to be most sensitive to the activities of terrorist groups, especially on the ground.

As a moral commitment and awareness of the terrorist background of this organization, we respectfully inform you:

The Mojahedin Khalq Organization, which has adopted an armed and terrorist strategy to advance its political aims, appeared in Iran’s political scene in the 1970s with the assassination of six US officials with fundamentally anti-American slogans and has never officially been adopted as a human being in the 21st century. The terrorist did not shrink from it and this attitude was clearly displayed in the official logo of the organization with a rifle. The Mujahideen Magazine’s official organ was also a weapon.

The Mojahedin Khalq Organization has been violent and terrorist over the past 40 years, particularly by firing mortars in public places, killing intelligence and collaborating with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein as a barrier to the Iranian people’s liberation movement and without credibility. There is no policy in their country.

The MKO (MEK)  has never been a political and democratic entity and organized dozens of horrific self-immolation protests on public and European streets in June 2003. On the other hand, the Mujahideen have handed over their dissatisfied members to the former dictatorial prisons of Saddam Hussein. In particular, the Abu Ghraib prison, now known to civilized countries, has secretly killed its members or handed them over to the Iranian authorities.

In 1991, The Mojahidin killed Kurds in the north and suppressed Shiites in the southern Iraq showed. This showed that the Mojahedin had acted as part of Saddam Hussein’s presidential guard during his years in Iraq (from 1986 until the fall of Saddam Hussein).

According to the above criteria, you must recognize that the MKO (MEK) , based on internationally recognized standards and criteria, has none of the components of a democratic group. By using the democratic conditions of your country – the United States of America – it will help them hide their true faces.

As the president of the Senate:

Is it permissible for an anti-American and Islamic movement, in the interests of the nation and the American people, to distribute weapons in its official logo on the streets of Washington?

Do these activities not increase the growth of terrorism in your country?

So we have a clear request to you to prevent this Senate session, and we believe that any tolerance of this terrorist wave will have terrible consequences for your community.

The German-based Avon Canon as a research center with sufficient information and publications can, if you wish, benefit from more information about the MKO and its past record.

Remember: MEK was an American excuse to invade Iraq

Ali Safavi NCRIKim Hjelmgaard, USA TODAY, May 31 2019:… Bush branded Iraq part of an “axis of evil” for harboring, financing and aiding terrorists Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or MEK.   Bolton’s first encounters with the MEK took place in Iraq, where for a period it had aligned itself with Hussein’s government, which was fighting a war with Iran.

Escalating Iran crisis looks a lot like the path US took to Iraq war

The U.S. military’s guided bombs brought “shock and awe” to Baghdad in 2003 when American forces invaded Iraq 16 years ago to hunt for weapons of mass destruction. They never found any. Many observers, today, consider that war a failure.

Now, half of all Americans believe the U.S. will go to war with Iran “within the next few years,” according to a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll released in late May amid increased tensions between the two countries, longtime geopolitical foes.

The escalating Tehran-Washington crisis comes as the White House claims, without providing detail or public evidence, that Iran poses an increased threat to American forces and facilities in the Middle East – one year after Trump withdrew from an accord between Iran and world powers aimed at limiting Tehran’s nuclear capabilities.

Trump’s hawks: Bolton amps up Iran sabotage claims, desire for nuclear weapons

Is Iran doomed to be an Iraq redux? This is just one of the questions raised by a crisis that has eerie parallels to the missteps that led to the Iraq War in 2003, where the buildup to conflict was precipitated by faulty intelligence and confrontational foreign policymakers such as John Bolton in President George W. Bush’s administration.

To make sense of what’s happening now, here’s what happened then:

  • Operation Desert Storm – the 1990-91 Persian Gulf War – came to an end 42 days after a U.S.-led offensive was launched in response to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s invasion of neighboring Kuwait. Iraq’s dictator accused Kuwait and Saudi Arabia of conspiring to keep oil prices artificially low for western consumers. President George H.W. Bush declared a ceasefire on February 28, 1991, as Iraqi forces in Kuwait surrendered or fled back to Iraq. About 700,000 American service members were deployed to the Gulf for the short war; 383 were killed.
  • When President George W. Bush became president in 2001, Hussein was back on the agenda. “There were a number of people in the Department of Defense who wanted to pursue a certain policy course. I don’t think they ever took their eyes off of Iraq,” former CIA Director John Brennan said in a 2007 National Geographic documentary about the 2003 Iraq War. “There was still a great deal of residual feeling that we should not have stopped the first Persian Gulf War when we did, but rather continue into Baghdad and topple Saddam Hussein,” ex-Senator and ex-Florida governor Bob Graham said in the same documentary.
  • Among the figures Brennan and Graham were referring to: Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Bolton, who had worked as a lawyer for the Bush campaign to block recount efforts in Florida that led to state officials awarding the 2000 election to Bush over Democratic candidate Al Gore.
  • Bolton was a lifelong staunch conservative with hawkish views on foreign policy. For a start, he abhorred multilateralism. “There is no United Nations. There is an international community that occasionally can be led by the only real power left in the world, and that’s the United States,” he said of the international organization in 1994, adding: “The secretariat building in New York has 38 stories. If you lost 10 stories today, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.” Years later, Bolton’s nomination to be U.S. Ambassador to the UN was blocked because of his hardline views. He would also call for the U.S. to make pre-emptive strikes against North Korea.
  • The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City and Washington shifted the Bush administration’s focus to hunting Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, where the ruling Taliban had given shelter to the al-Qaeda’s leader, who masterminded the attacks. But Iraq was also on the radar of the Pentagon’s military planners, who feared that Hussein might try to support or orchestrate an equally, or worse, catastrophic assault on U.S. soil  “We’re also working to prepare our nation for the next war,” Rumsfeld said at a briefing on Afghanistan in late 2001, referring to Iraq.
  • In January 2002, Bush branded Iraq part of an “axis of evil” for harboring, financing and aiding terrorists, and for its pursuit of nuclear weapons. Also members of the club: Iran and North Korea. These countries, Bush said, “are threatening the peace of the world.” He cast aside more dovish voices in his cabinet who urged him to pursue a diplomatic path in Iraq, saying “we can’t wait for the final proof, the smoking gun, that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud.”
  • Around the same time, Bolton, then serving as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security affairs in Bush’s administration, was becoming a key player in pushing for a military confrontation with Iraq, saying in a BBC radio debate that he was “confident” that Iraq had “hidden” weapons of mass destruction, including chemical weapons and production facilities. “The U.S. has already decided the outcome of this story – Saddam will be left with no weapons of mass destruction – but how that point is reached is up to Saddam Hussein,” Bolton said in the debate in London. He was also making unverified claims about other countries he wanted included in Bush’s “axis of evil,” testifying to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs that Cuba was secretly developing a biological weapons program that could be used in warfare against American forces and civilian targets by “rogue states.” Bolton provided no details when questioned. A subsequent Senate investigation found no evidence supporting his assertions.
  • In the months leading up to the Iraq War in 2003,  Cheney appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with a further warning: “The situation, I think, that leads a lot of people to be concerned about Iraq has to do not just with their past activity of harboring terrorists, but also with Saddam Hussein’s behavior over the years and with his aggressive pursuit of weapons of mass destruction.”
  • Despite not being able to produce clear “smoking gun” evidence of Hussein’s “hidden” program to acquire weapons of mass destruction, Bush, buoyed by key advisors such as Bolton, opted for war with Iraq. When he was not able to get an express United Nations Security Council mandate to do so he pursued a “coalition of the willing” that included Australia, Britain, Japan, Spain and others.
  • After the U.S. invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003, Hussein spent nine months on the run before he was found hiding in an eight-foot-deep hole near his hometown of Tikrit. An Iraqi court convicted Hussein of crimes against humanity, for using deadly gas against Iraqi Kurds and other transgressions, and he was later executed by hanging. No evidence of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction was found. The war was viewed as a fiasco, not only of intelligence, but because it further destabilized the region, contributed to the formation of the Islamic State terrorist group and led to the violent deaths of more 200,000 Iraqi civilians and at least 4,500 American troops. It added more than $1 trillion to U.S. government debt. Iraq’s economy, security and government remain in a fragile state.
  • In an opinion article in The Guardian in 2013, Bolton wrote: “Overthrowing Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in 2003 achieved important American strategic objectives. Our broad international coalition accomplished its military mission with low casualties and great speed, sending an unmistakable signal of power and determination throughout the Middle East and around the world. Despite all the criticism of what happened after Saddam’s defeat, these facts are indisputable.”
  • Meanwhile, with the failed outcome of the 2003 Iraq War still plain to see, Bolton started ramping up his outspoken criticism of Iran’s Islamic Republic. In 2009, as President Barack Obama’s administration entered into what would turn out to be almost five years of negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, Bolton said: “Ultimately, the only thing that will stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons is regime change in Tehran.” As the deal entered its final stages, Bolton advocated in a New York Times opinion piece that the U.S. join forces with Israel: “Time is terribly short, but a strike can still succeed. Such action should be combined with vigorous American support for Iran’s opposition, aimed at regime change in Tehran,” he wrote. The articled was headlined: “To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran.”
  • Also troubling: The Iranian opposition group Bolton was referring to in his New York Times opinion article is the National Council of Resistance of Iran, a controversial Paris-based political organization also known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, or MEK. Along with Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, Bolton is long-time supporter of the exiled opposition group and has been paid to speak at its annual rallies. The MEK is often described by observers of its activities, including by humanitarian groups and even a U.S. government research document from 2012, as displaying “cultlike behavior.” The MEK’s reported abuses – vigorously denied to USA TODAY by its senior leadership who claim they result from a vicious and protracted “disinformation campaign” by Iran’s clerical rulers – range from torture and forced celibacy to holding members against their will, sometimes in solitary confinement. The MEK says its critics are often spies for the Iranian regime. Bolton’s first encounters with the MEK took place in Iraq, where for a period it had aligned itself with Hussein’s government, which was fighting a war with Iran.
  • When Bolton joined the Trump administration as national security adviser in 2018, replacing seasoned former Army officer Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, he continued his public saber rattling and criticism of Iran by releasing a video on the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution via the White House’s official Twitter channel. In the video, Bolton calls Iran “the central banker of international terrorism” and accuses Tehran of pursuing nuclear weapons and missiles to deliver them and of “tyrannizing its own people and terrorizing the world.” The video ends with a direct threat to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader: “I don’t think you’ll have many more anniversaries to enjoy,” Bolton says.
  • Iran’s interest in nuclear technology dates to the 1950s, when it received help from a U.S.-backed program promoted by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who wanted to share U.S. nuclear expertise with other countries for peaceful purposes, such as energy production. But after Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution and a U.S. hostage crisis at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran effectively ended relations between the two nations, U.S. intelligence agencies have long suspected, without explicit evidence, that Iran has attempted to use its civilian nuclear program as a cover for clandestine weapons development. Obama’s 2015 nuclear accord was designed to prevent that and the UN’s nuclear watchdog has repeatedly verified through inspections and other safeguards that Iran has been complying with the terms of the agreement, even after the U.S. withdrew from it and Washington re-imposed sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy. Bolton has regularly decried those inspections as ineffectual, believes the nuclear accord was a sham and has advocated for a far bolder Iran policy that aggressively addresses Iran’s support for anti-American shia militias and Tehran’s ballistic missile program.
  • Most Iran experts, political scientists and many U.S. lawmakers believe that it is this – Bolton’s desire, like in Iraq, to confront Iran – that underpins a still-unexplained decision by the Pentagon to deploy warships, B-52 bombers and missiles to the Persian Gulf earlier this month in response to unspecified threats from Iran in the region. The U.S. also plans to send 900 additional troops to the Middle East and extend the stay of another 600 who are part of tens of thousands of others on the ground there. “The previous administration appeased the Islamic Republic of Iran. So we are pushing back. And when you push back, tension does increase,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, another Iran hawk in the Trump administration, said in response to efforts to get clarity over the moves.
  • In recent days, Bolton also has accused Iran of being behind a string of incidents in the Persian Gulf, including what officials allege was sabotage of oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates and a rocket that landed near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, while Yemen’s Iranian-aligned Houthi rebels launched a string of drone attacks targeting Saudi Arabia. Iran has mostly avoided addressing the allegations, although it has said it doesn’t fear a war with the U.S. It has also signaled that its patience with the nuclear deal is wearing thin and threatened to resume uranium enrichment at levels higher than the accord permits. Speaking in Abu Dhabi, Bolton said Wednesday that there had been a previously unknown attempt to attack the Saudi oil port of Yanbu as well. “Who else would you think is doing it? Somebody from Nepal?” Bolton said that there was “no reason” for Iran to back out of the nuclear deal other than to seek atomic weapons.
  • As for Trump’s position on Iran, nobody seems to know the president’s mind, not even, perhaps, the president. Trump has oscillated between overtly aggressive rhetoric and seemingly conciliatory statements. “We have no indication that anything’s happened or will happen, but if it does, it will be met obviously with great force,” Trump said last week at the White House. While on a four-day visit to Japan, Trump denied he wants regime change in Iran and said it’s not the goal. Some national security experts believe that Bolton’s role in pushing for war with Iran has been exaggerated, and that his influence on the president has been overstated. Still, there have been few Iran-related denials from Bolton, although just hours after the publication of this story, Bolton told a group of reporters while on a trip to London: “The policy we’re pursuing is not a policy of regime change. That’s the fact and everybody should understand it that way.”

Trump says he doesn’t want war: Is Bolton driving the U.S. into a conflict anyway?
