Iranian “Khalq” for MEK, Pompeo and Bolton

More good news for the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ the Cult of Rajavi): “The Trump administration will sharply accelerate its goal of driving Iran’s oil exports to zero, ending sanctions exemptions that it previously granted to some of the Islamic Republic’s biggest customers.” [1]
The “maximum pressure” campaign by the White House, Treasury Department, and State Department is welcome by the Mujahedin Khalq Organization who claim to be holly warriors for the Iranian people.( Khalq is the Arabic term for people)
This is while the group’s most prominent American supporter John Bolton bluntly admits that the sanctions against Iran “only hurts the Iranian people”. He posted on his tweeter account on April 22nd after Secretary Pompeo announced that the United States would force China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Turkey to cease all imports of Iranian oil or face severe U.S. sanctions. “The Iranian regime should understand that it must change its behavior now or continue to pay the cost for its destabilizing behavior, which only hurts the Iranian people”, Bolton tweeted.

But, the MEK’s propaganda figure, Maryam Rajavi once more teams up her cult-like violent group with the Iranian people claiming that the Iranian people welcome such detrimental sanctions against their life, well-being and health. “The Iranian people and Resistance have been demanding the imposition of an oil and arms embargo on the mullahs’ anti-human, anti-Iranian regime since 4 decades”, she tweets.

The MEK’s false claims had been also denounced in a closed-door meeting with Iranian-American community leaders last Monday when Pompeo was asked how he could guarantee that the Trump administration’s tough new sanctions wouldn’t hurt the people of Iran, he replied: “There are no guarantees.” Pompeo implied that the Iranian people are not separated from the Iranian government.

Besides, the meeting had bad news for the MKO. “Pompeo also distanced the administration from the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, or MEK (Mujahedin-e Khalq), an anti-regime group that the U.S. once designated as a foreign terrorist organization,” Axios reported. “ Several people in the room told Pompeo they worried about what message it sent for close Trump allies — National Security Adviser John Bolton and Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani among them — to appear friendly with the MEK, whom some in the room described as worse than the current regime.” [3]
And this was the secretary’s response: “Ambassador Bolton spoke at an MEK rally. President Trump and I have not.”
“He acknowledged that John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani had connections or ties, whatever you want to call it … with the MEK, but he did say that he and the president did not,” Texas attorney Michael Payma –another person who was in the room– told Axios. [4]
Furthermore, whether the MEK is embraced by the US administration or not, one thing is for sure. The MEK is not the representative of the Iranian “Khalq” but it is against the khalq. It is always supporting the most hostile policies and actions against Iranian nation.
During the 1980s, the MEK formed “Saddam’s private army” and fought against its countrymen in the eight years of Iran-Iraq war. Following the collapse of the Iraqi dictator, it turned into the henchmen of the Israeli and US intelligence. The MEK agents were Mossad’s operational arms to assassinate the Iranian nuclear scientists in the 2000s. And, today the MEK is in all fronts against the Iranian people, no matter the enemies of Iran want it or not.
