MEK and Lebanon – Iran Interlink Weekly Digest

Iran Interlink Weekly Digest – Aug 07, 2020

MEK and Lebanon – Iran Interlink Weekly Digest++ An article by Gareth Porter, published by The Greyzone, has been translated into Farsi. Porter reveals new information about the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community centre in Argentina which was blamed on Iran. Porter shows that there is no evidence of this and that a “former infiltrator’s account provided the first clear indication that anti-Semitic veterans of Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’ and their allies in the Argentine police and intelligence service orchestrated the explosion.” At the time of “Nisman’s 2006 indictment of seven Iranian officials for the terror plot relied completely on the claims of senior members of the Mujahedin-E-Khalq (MEK), the Israeli and Saudi-backed Iranian exile cult. Not only were none of the MEK members in any position to provide reliable information about a supposedly high-level Iranian plot because they had been actively engaged in a terrorist campaign of their own against the Islamic government by helping Iraq’s then-President Saddam Hussein select targets in Iran. Mossad info, MEK sources – Resorting to bribery, to blame Iran for AMIA.”

++ Iran has arrested Jamshid Shahmahd head of the Tondar Association based in America. Tondar claims it is responsible for several terrorist operations in Iran. According to Iranian officials Shahmahd was arrested in Iran. But MEK said “no, we know he was arrested outside Iran and illegally taken to Iran”. They came up with various locations where the arrest took place, from Tajikistan to Dubai and others. In the end what MEK say is that because of this America has to attack Iran in retaliation. Farsi commentators scathingly remark about how low MEK are that on the back of anything happening anywhere they demand the US attacks Iran. Yet the US doesn’t even acknowledge them.

Albania Accession TO EU – Open Letter to the Negotiators

++ This week marked the 30th anniversary of Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait. Some wrote about the MEK in that time. The US asked Massoud Rajavi to leave Iraq with the promise of a new base. But Rajavi decided to stay thus betraying his bigger boss. One article commenting on this is titled ’40 years of pot strategy’ This uses an Iranian proverb to say that for 40 years MEK has been waiting for someone to break the pot and spill the yoghurt so they can lick the remains from the floor. Another article uses MEK’s logo as its title: ‘Toppling at any price’. This explains how Rajavi started with this slogan and kept his word by paying any price. The writer asks, “What is the toppling for? You have been anti-imperialist and then gone along with America. Believing that the end justifies the means is your mistake.”

++ Massoud Khodabandeh wrote a note which was published by Iran’s Centre of Documentation. Khodabandeh gives a fresh analysis of Iran’s acceptance of the 1988 ceasefire of the Iran Iraq war. He explains that contrary to the accepted ‘forced surrender’ narrative, the Americans tried everything they could to prevent Ayatollah Khomeini from accepting the UN ceasefire because this would signal a defeat for Saddam Hussein. As long as Iran kept fighting, the country could be demonized. Several attacks were launched to provoke Iranian retaliation, including the shooting down of a civilian airplane. The last-ditch attempt to derail the signing was MEK’s failed Eternal Light operation. Rajavi had gone to Saudi Arabia shortly before this to take orders in person. The Iranian military defeated the MEK forces and the ceasefire was signed.

++ Over the last week MEK brought a lot of the members to their TV to swear at their families. One of these families is an elderly mother who has 3 children in MEK. She wrote answering the TV onslaught, asking her sons, “What did I say to make you all swear at me? I only asked you to talk to me. Do you expect me to abandon my children and accept they are willingly swearing at their mother for no apparent reason. If this was in the western media, wouldn’t you accuse MEK of ‘forced confessions’? Apparently, it’s OK if your puppets in Albania do it.”

++ Information leaked from inside MEK in Albania two days ago tells of a memo distributed to leading members. The memo details a changed work schedule for the Click Farm. Farsi social media accounts should be deleted, and Arabic accounts related to Lebanon created in their stead. The aim is to target the Lebanese people and convince them that Iran and Hizbollah were behind the port explosion. The click farm workers are given various Arabic hashtags and phrases to use which reinforce the message behind the posts – such as “Strike them hard and God will revive you even from death and show you his signs.” فَقُلْنَا ٱضْرِبُوهُ بِبَعْضِهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يُحْىِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمَوْتَىٰ وَيُرِيكُمْ ءَايَٰتِهِ from the Qoran.

In addition to these posts there are photoshopped images showing protestors in Beirut with anti-Iran and anti-Hezbollah placards along with the images of Khamenei and Nasrollah crudely placed in some shots. BBC Persian, VOA Persian and other Persian and Arabic outlets have gone into overdrive to use these posts and photos to claim these are by genuine people. However, it is clear from examining events in Beirut that there has been some paid infiltration in the protests against Iran/Hezbollah with some arrests. At the same time, Facebook and Twitter rigorously censor posts which appear to explain the Hezbollah position in Lebanon which say that Hezbollah did not store any of its missiles at the port and do not have any governmental positions which would implicate them in anything that may have caused the explosion.

The MEK click farm in Albania is being used to put pressure on the Lebanese government to say something against Iran and Hezbollah. The problem for MEK is that the members don’t know Arabic, so the social media posts purporting to be from Lebanese citizens are written in Farsi along with the Arabic hashtags and phrases. An example is a Lebanese woman Tweeting in Farsi:

Anniversary Of Mersad Operation By Rajavi And Saddam

After Iran agreed to the terms of UN Resolution 598[1], Saddam Hussein confessed at a closed-meeting that he fully intended to renege on the terms of the ceasefire to strike Iran when it the least expected.

Wafiq al-Samarraee, then the head of the Iraqi army intelligence agency and director of military intelligence for Iran noted: “President Saddam, at a special secret meeting at the Ministry of Defense told us: ‘if we succeed in overthrowing the Iranian government, Kuwait will join Iraq, so there is a historic opportunity for a massive attack to overthrow the Iranian regime and changing it with a new government which we will elect [2].”

According to the Iraqi intelligence official, the MEK assured Saddam that should its members come to rule, Iran would forever be a friend of Iraq and thus support its policies.
 
The MEK / MKO was so bent on seizing power that its leadership willingly plotted a war against their own, putting millions of innocents in harm’s way. Most striking remains the group’s divorce from reality as its leaders continue, even to this day, to believe they have some form of popular legitimacy.
 
Captain Sattar Sa’ ad of the 3rd Army Corps of the Iraqi Army was there during Operation Forough Javidan; he wrote in his diary: “Massoud Rajavi repeatedly said that in those areas we were going to operate in the people would support us. But Rajavi and his men deceived us. I quickly realized that all Iranians we came across in fact hated Massoud Rajavi and his wife. I saw with my own eyes how they tore Massoud Rajavi’s pictures and his wife and how strongly they resisted.[3]”

 The captain also commented on the crimes and moral depravation MEK militants so eagerly committed. How for example the group’s female militants gave away sexual favours to prove their loyalty to Iraq and its military. He also described the cruelty of all MEK militants when confronted with Iranian civilians, how they tore at the flesh of women and executed the innocent.
Mersad Operation the Counter Attack of Iran Military Forces 
After Iran accepted the UN resolution 598 and declared a ceasefire with Iraq, Saddam used the terrorist MKO group encamped in Iraq to gain as much of Iranian territory as possible.

The MKO was calculating on civil unrest against the regime and public support for their cause. An army of about 15,000 Anti-Iranian forces equipped with weapons and logistics supplied by Iraq and other enemies of Iran started their invasion from west. This proved again that MKO and their European allies did not have a clue about Iranian psychology as Iranians quickly entered the battle position and started the Mersad Operation on July, 28, 1988 with the code:Ya Ali.
 
Happy with their initial success, the Anti-Iranian army moved towards Kermanshah with dreams of capturing Tehran. They were unaware that this was a tactical move to get them all inside a trap. 34 km west of Bakhtaran, a rain of fire descended upon the enemy destroying most of their armored vehicles including 120 tanks. In this operation 4800 of enemy mercenaries were killed while others fled towards Iraq.

The operation of Forough Javidan became a fiasco for MEK and considered as the worst military operation of the world based on the tactics that many MEK members were killed or arrested. After the operation, Massoud Rajavi shamelessly denied all responsibilities, preferring instead to blame his members’ lack of commitment.
 
The Iranian Mersad Operation was an extraordinary operation that most of the world military experts claim it as a great operation that showed the quick counter attack of Iranian military forces and one of the examples of military tactics around the world.
