MEK Ad Money Dampens Twitter Crack Down – Iran Interlink Weekly Digest – Sep 04, 2020

++ In continuation of the Ehsan Bidi saga and Maryam Rajavi’s failed attempt to leave Albania, this week MEK turned on Olsi Jazexhi and Gjergji Thanasi as their most effective local critics. MEK brought out some members who are famous for torture in Saddam’s Private Army in Iraq (MEK). They dressed them up with jackets and ties and had them attacking and threatening Jazexhi and Thanasi using the Iran Interlink Weekly Digest Mojahedin Khalq MEK NCRI Rajavi cultfamous phrase ‘agents of the regime’ – which in cult jargon means ‘we will kill you’. Jazexhi and Thanasi did not give in to this blatant intimidation and instead brought this MEK activity into the public domain with a series of interviews and articles in Albanian and in international outlets. Jazexhi, who is a well-known media personality, invited Rajavi to a public debate. He said ‘now that our country is the only place they could deport you to and we have to live with you and your people, and there is nothing we can do about that, come and talk. Ask us whatever you want and we will ask you what you want in this country, what is behind your activities and above all, what is behind your human rights abuses and cruelty to the members’ families’. After this blew up, MEK, as usual, retreated into their holes and disappeared as though nothing had happened.

++ It was revealed that Rajavi had been trying to get a visa from Belgium. Her lobbyists asked for her to be allowed for only a couple of hours in Brussels to show she is not banned. Some American backers promised to pay something back to Belgium in return. So far, nobody has accepted the couple of hours deal.

سالگرد تاسیس سازمان مجاهدین – مدعیان نه تنها شکست خوردند که سقوط اخلاقی کردند

++ This coming week is the anniversary of the foundation of MEK. Every year MEK try to say they are the same people and the rest of the world say ‘no, you have changed’. A piece written by Ali Jahani in Germany, titled ‘from a small apartment in Tehran to a CIA camp in Tirana’, goes through the changes, showing the transmutation from the founding members struggling against the Shah, to now with MEK sponsored by Imperialism. Other writers point out the same conclusion – the MEK are not the same as the founders’ Mojahedin-e Khalq. In fact, they 180 degrees the opposite, but every year the argument stays the same: whether the fundamental belief system would have inevitably changed with the times, or is it due to the hijacking of the organisation by Massoud and Maryam Rajavi for their own purposes.

++ Around five to six weeks ago the families of MEK members in Albania had an online conference. MEK kept silent. This week MEK suddenly woke up and had to react. They began swearing at the families and Ebrahim Khodabandeh. Bakhshali Alizadeh from Nejat Association wrote a short note that after 37 days MEK reacted because they couldn’t not react. They thought it would go away. Now they realise the families are not going away.

In English:

++ A flurry of articles and interviews erupted when MEK threatened Albanian media and academic personalities. Gjergji Thanasi and Olsi Jazexhi exposed MEK’s mendacious activities and asked for government protection against the paramilitary MEK. “While we are not afraid from MEK’s threats, lies and character assassination, we would like to urge your ministries to grant us full protection against these foreign fighters and ex-terrorist mujahedin. These people have blood on their hands and the possibility exist that we might be physically attacked or even murdered by these violent foreign fighters and ex terrorists.”

++ Press TV reported that during the commemorations for the national ‘Day of Fighting Terrorism’, the Iranian Foreign Ministry “lambasted the United States and the European Union for providing a safe haven for the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group, which murdered thousands of Iranians and notoriously sided with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during his 1980-88 war on the Islamic Republic.

++ Tehran Times ran a piece on letters to Iran’s Foreign Ministry and Judiciary from Zohreh Elahian, Chair of Parliament’s Human Rights Committee. Elahian called for MEK members in European countries to be extradited. Highlighting MEK’s killing of over 17,000 Iranian citizens, “she called on the judiciary chief to issue an order paving the way for identifying, suing, extraditing, prosecuting, and confiscating the assets of the MKO terrorists. She also called for gathering accurate information about MKO terrorists’ activities at the UN.”

++ Nejat Bloggers published an interview by Olsi Jazexhi with Soraya Abdullahi, mother of a MEK member, about the young female hostages inside the MEK. Abdullahi weeps as she says anyone trying to contact MEK members from outside the cult is labelled and agent of the IRI by MEK. She pleads with the authorities in Albania to help her and other families. “Abdollahi recounts her experience of the several times that she picketed together with other families in front of Camp Ashraf, Iraq. She witnessed female members of the MEK gazing at them through the bars of the camp. ‘I saw them from a short distance’, Abdollahi talks about the young girls of the MEK. ‘They seemed so oppressed looking at me with too much regret like asking me to rescue them from behind those barbed wires’. She recalls two female defectors of the MEK Maryam Sanjabi and Zahra Mirbagheri as two typical examples of young girls who escaped from Camp Ashraf during those years. ‘A lot of other girls are still there taken as hostages such as Somayeh [Mohammadi]’, she adds.”

++ Paul Brian and Arthur Bloom, in The American Conservative, provide a thorough exposure of MEK’s deceptive, disinformation activity using fake accounts and identities. The piece concludes that MEK Twitter activity “is a hall of mirrors amplifying the case for war with Iran, and the ad money from NCRI and pro-MEK accounts seems to have dampened Twitter’s desire to crack down. A request for comment from Twitter was not returned as of press time.”

Lucrative MEK Fake Accounts Interfering In American Politics

“As a matter of journalistic ethics any organization engaging in systematic dishonesty like this has provided a very good reason to blacklist them. Failing to do so will encourage other foreign interests to do the same in the future, so conservative publishers should decline all content and interviews from the MEK in the future. This is not a matter of foreign policy differences: if you wish to see the U.S. pursue regime change in Iran, the MEK does not help make that case. Any publishers or think tanks who are aware of this dishonesty and still treat them like a legitimate opposition group should be considered part of a campaign not wholly different from the last time we were lied into a Mideast war.”

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

OLSI JAZEXHI Albania

Albanian journalist Dr. Olsi Jazexhi

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.

Olsi & Gjergji discuss the threats that Maryam Rajavi & MKO do to media and democracy in Albania

Olsi Jazexhi

Dr. Olsi Jazexhi and Gjergji Thanasi discuss the presence of MEK in Albania. They show how the number of #MEK soldiers have grown from 3000 to 7200. MEK is collecting mojahedeens thoughout the Middle East and is building a big paramilitary camp with #foreignfighters within Albania. After the destruction of ISIS / DAESH, MEK is the largest group of Foreign Fighters / ex-terrorists / jihadis that exist in the world and their base is in Albania. Olsi @ Gjergji analyse the divisions within the Mujahedeen army and mass defections from the group.

They reveal the case of Ehsan Bidi, a MEK defector whom the Albanian authorities removed his UNHCR asylum status and jailed him for one year on Maryam Rajavi’s orders. Later on August 13, 2020 Bidi was illegally thrown to Greek border by the Albanian police in order to punish and scare him and other defectors who do not obey to the commands of #MaryamRajavi The government of Edi Rama has given MEK extaordinary powers. They do not obey to Albanian laws, make calls for jihad and moreover blackmail media and journalists who expose their human rights abuses and crimes. While Maryam Rajavi, the supreme commander of the Mojahedeen claims that she will bring democracy to Iran, she runs a totalitarian cult where democracy and freedom does not exist. MEK attacks media and journalists from the BBC, Channel 4, al-Jazeera and has intimidated most of Albanian media and journalists into silence. Their presence threatens democracy and freedom of thought in Albania and security in the region.
