Iran Interlink Weekly Digest++ Unconfirmed reports from medical personnel in Mother Theresa hospital in Tirana suggest that at least one MEK member has died of COVID-19 in the past week.

++ MEK are on overdrive to fetch up anyone who can string a sentence together to attack Olsi Jazexhi, Gjergji Thanasi and other journalists. As usual, these MEK members are people who are not accessible, who are confined to the camp. MEK knows that anyone outside the camp – lobbyists and others who still have a place in society – will be questioned and challenged. The people in the camp have no stake in society. Analysts say this a panicked reaction by Rajavi because she is confined to Albania and has nowhere else to go. She is spending all the money and energy that she used to spend elsewhere in Albania to keep her foothold there. An Iranian analyst says it’s like she’s in solitary confinement and every now and then the door opens, and a plague of journalists is poured in. Rajavi is phobic about journalists and she is screaming with fright. Some analysts say Albania is the last graveyard of the MEK, they will sit there and rot.

Lucrative MEK Fake Accounts Interfering In American Politics

++ This week marked the anniversary of the killing of 51 people in Camp Ashraf in Iraq, 10 Shahrivar 1392. Some former MEK members who were there and are now out have written about the situation. Many write about Massoud Dalili who was the 52nd victim; tortured and killed and his face burned so he would not be recognised. He was identified by the Americans from his DNA. Rajavi kept these one hundred members in the camp to get money – as leverage. Some writers remember that when they were killed, Mohsen Rezai said “never mind about 51 people, just see how much coverage we have got. If we do a hunger strike as well, we’ll get more coverage. That’s more important.” They tried to sell this to us as a victory – as they tried to sell us deportation from Iraq to Albania as a historical victory, comparing it with prophet Mohammad going from Mecca to Madina.

In English:

++ MEK has been left reeling from the inescapable reaction by Albanians to its attacks on journalists and academics. In particular, Olsi Jazexhi, who is a well know academic with a strong media presence, has invited Maryam Rajavi to a public debate about her activities in his country. In another interview, he pointed out that MEK were imposed on Albania by the US and that Albanians, since then, have protested and demanded that MEK should not be located in their country.

++ Nejat Society CEO Ebrahim Khodabandeh and member Soraya Abdullahi have both written to Maria Arena, MEP, Head of the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI), describing the situation of MEK members in the camp in Albania, the families’ efforts to make contact with them and the Albanian government’s silence over their pleas.

MEK Cult Operatives Undermining American Democracy

++ Mazda Parsi writing for Nejat Society says

Families of the MEK members should plant the seed of hope for their loved ones’. Parsi points out that cults work vigorously to break family ties to create insecurity. “Family relation is important since our mental growth, well-being, and stability all depend on our family relations. Children brought up in a healthy family will be able to establish better bonds outside their home… A family makes all its members feel safe and connected to one another. It provides them with the comfort of having people by their side during tough times, helping them to manage and control the stress. A family allows its members to feel safe, protected, accepted and loved despite all shortcomings. Families are the basic units of the society that teach children about relationships. Now imagine the children who lived and grew up in a cult-like system. Children in the MEK – who are now in their thirties or forties—do not know how to build trust in others.” Parsi relates a parallel situation to MEK. Glenn Stok helped free his sister from Scientology. Stok had an opportunity to reach out to his sister at a family funeral. But MEK families have no way of contacting their loved ones. And their loved ones have no way of contacting them. “Glenn Stock knows that some destructive cults prevent any possibility for their members and their families to communicate. ‘If you have a family member or a friend in Scientology, or any religious cult, and you’ve lost the ability to communicate, plant that seed and wait for the opportunity to help’, he suggests. ‘Do it before it’s too late, and be ready to do whatever you can when the call for help arrives’.”

++ Yaran Iran Association in Paris reported that a delegation of former MEK members visited the Albanian embassy in Paris to present over 11,000 letters and signatures of the families and friends of MEK members who have been taken hostage by the Rajavi cult. They demanded that the Albanian authorities take action to end MEK human rights abuses and enable the families to make contact with their loved ones in Albania.

Albanian journo challenges MKO ringleader to open debate, vows to keep exposing terrorists

Iran Interlink Weekly Digest

[ Editor’s Note: These two Albanian journalists writing about MKO, when it is under the full protection of the US and NATO, is a ballsy thing to do. They could be VT guys covering and saying what no one else will. We salute Olsi Jazexhi and Gjergji Thanasi.

When Western countries are harboring ‘useful’ terrorist groups, they generally want them to be low profile. But the US is the exception, as Trump buddy Rudy Giuliani has been a big promoter of the group.

US and Western media give them a free pass, so it was a surprise to see these two Albanians taking MKO on in a country where you can get someone killed for a very reasonable price.

I was surprised to see him claim that the MKO forces in the country outnumber the army and police. Wikipedia seems to disagree with about 6,000 regular and 5000 reserves, not counting the police. 

But the bottom line here could be said that this long love affair the US has had with the MKO terror group, and never having been sanctioned for it formally or even in the media, might have led to the flood of proxy terror wars we see going on.

It reminds me of my mother, after spanking me, educating me as to why…”Give a kid an inch and they will take a mile”. That was a bit over my head at the time, but it was not a good time to argue or ask questions, or I would get a ’round two’ for being ‘sassy’… Jim W. Dean ]

An Albanian journalist, committed to exposing the criminal activities of the anti-Iran Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) terror group, responds to the threats he has received from the group’s ringleader, Mariam Rajavi.

“I really want to have an open debate with you,” Olsi Jazexhi told Rajavi in a video posted on YouTube on Monday.

He said he had made the video after the MKO ringleader finally dared to verbalize threats against him and Gjergji Thanasi, a similarly outspoken Albanian journalist, through two of the group’s “commanders.” The terrorist top brass conveyed the threats in two articles that have appeared on MKO-related websites.

Jezexhi expressed surprise that the ringleader had chosen to target him in this fashion this time around after three years of “attacking me from behind” by pressuring him through the Albanian government and his employer.

“I’m very happy that you have come out with the face of your commanders to attack me,” he said, adding that the covert attacks had “caused so many troubles for my life, and destroyed it economically.”

‘Never to be silenced’

The journalist, however, pledged that he would not stop probing the group and revealing information about it.

“I want to tell you, Mariam Rajavi, that Albania is a democratic state, and we are a liberal democracy, where we have freedom of speech,” he said.

“We’re never going to be silenced. We’re going to investigate and expose to the international and Albanian community, the crimes and the illegal things that you’re doing in my country,” Jezexhi said.

The MKO has a squalid history of assassinations and bombings against the Iranian government and nation. It notoriously sided with Saddam Hussein during the former Iraqi dictator’s 1980-88 war on Iran.

Out of the nearly 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist assaults since the victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, about 12,000 have fallen victim to the MKO’s acts of terror.

Western countries, topped by the United States, have, nevertheless, taken the group out of their terror blacklists.

Currently based in Albania, the group throws lavish conferences every year in Paris, with certain American, Western, and Saudi officials as its guests of honor. These include former US national security advisor John Bolton, US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, former Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper, and former Saudi Arabian spy chief, Prince Turki Al Faisal.

The MKO was relocated from Iraq, where it used to enjoy the US’s protection, to Albania in 2016, where it was allowed by Tirana to set up a paramilitary camp.

Jezexhi said since then, the cult’s membership has grown from some 3,000 to around 7,000, identifying himself as one of the first public speakers in Albania to ever ask his government not to bring in the terrorists.

‘Good terrorists, standing army’

Jezexhi said the group has attained the “good and useful terrorist” status because of the support it gets from the US, the NATO military alliance and Israel, as well as the money it receives from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

This, he added, was because “they’re being kept as a standing army, ready to be used and deployed at any moment…whenever the United States and Israel wants them to.”

“NATO needs to use [them] in the future war that the Americans and Israel plan to wage against Iran,” the journalist said.

In Albania, the MKO now outnumber even the army and the police, the number of whose overall forces stands at some 6,000.

The MKO terrorists have told the people in Albania that they have come there “on humanitarian visas” while their status does not differ at all from those returning from fighting alongside Takfiri terrorist groups such as Daesh, al-Nusra Front, or Tahrir al-Sham against the Syrian government and people.

Jezexhi said Balkan countries like Albania are mandated to prosecute those who used to engage in fighting abroad after their return, and have jailed and charged hundreds of the Takfiri returnees as a result of the imperative.

“However, in the case of Albania and since the United States is at war with Iran and Israel as well [is at war with Iran], the Albania-based Mujahedin are pampered by the Americans and the Albanian government,” he noted.
