MEK’s expertise in civil unrest and terror acts every where

It was just a few weeks ago that the disappeared leader of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MEK/ MKO/ PMOI/ Cult of Rajavi), Massoud Rajavi elaborated a message admitting the killing of seventeen thousand Iranians. “Approving the seventeen thousand casualties of the regime in the battle against the Mujahedin Khalq first of all indicates the longtime and continuing fight between the MEK and the religious fascism,” Rajavi addressed the Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei who had criticized the French government for sheltering the MEK as a terrorist group that has had the blood of seventeen thousand Iranians on its hands.

It was just a few weeks after the alleged message of Massoud Rajavi in which he promised the killing of more Iranians, that the Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in Absard, a town located in 40 kilometers east of Tehran. However, the terrorist attack was nothing of new. At least five Iranian nuclear scientists have previously been killed in terror attacks.

The Iranian authorities immediately claimed the attack was carried out by Israeli agents and eventually most Middle East experts confirmed the claim adding the cooperation of the MEK agents with the Israelis to the argument. “Israel has in the past, however, used operatives from the MEK — a cult-like Iranian exile group recently removed from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations — to conduct attacks in Iran,” Trita Parsi, former President of National Iranian American Council (NIAC) writes. “The MEK was the first group to introduce suicide assassinations to Iran.” [1]

As a well-organized military group with at least three decades of overt terrorist attacks inside and outside Iran that resulted in the killing of thousands of Iranians and non-Iranians, the Mujahedin Khalq has always been a dependable proxy force for the enemies of Iran from Saddam Hussein to Israel and American warmongers. The utilization of minority communities in Iran has become an instrument for attempted regime change in Iran. Most significantly, the US and Israel use the likes of the MEK and other terrorist organizations to attack Iranian nuclear scientists and military sites and also to create civil unrest in critical occasions.

Muhammad Sahimi, a Professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles just a few weeks before the assassination of Fakhrizadeh warned about the notorious support of the US for the Cult of Massoud Rajavi from the era of George W. Bush. At that time some high-ranking officials of Al-Qaida including relatives of Osama bin Laden, had escaped to Iran and consequently were arrested and jailed by Iranian police. “In 2003 Iran proposed to the George W. Bush administration to exchange them with the leadership of the MEK, a cult-like group based in Iraq that opposed the government in Tehran and until 2012 was listed by the State Department as a terrorist organization”, he wrote on Antiwar Website. “Because of its collaboration with the Saddam Hussein regime during Iran-Iraq war, the MEK is universally despised by Iranians. In 2003 the MEK leadership was being protected by the US forces in Iraq after the Bush administration invaded and occupied Iraq in 2003. But the Bush administration rejected the offer, because the Iran hawks wanted, and still wish, to use the MEK against the regime in Tehran.” [2]

The MEK’s malicious attitudes can always be a big obstacle in normalizing and stabilizing relation between nations. That is why the President Biden’s ex-adviser on Middle East affairs, Daniel Benaim suggests the US’s next administration to relocate the MEK in Ethiopia or somewhere on the shores of the Red Sea in order to reduce tensions with the Iranian government. His argument is accurately based on the MEK’s expertise in a variety of illegal acts. “My friend and I share the suggestion that Iran could welcome a reduction in US support to MEK,” he suggests. “Albanian officials in bilateral meetings with American officials have declared that they are concerned over illegal activities of MEK such as trafficking of human beings, drugs or gun running. It is not necessary to shelter Muajhedin-e Khalq in Albania and close to EU borders for a long time and we can study the possibility of transferring them to Ethiopia or somewhere on the shores of the Red Sea.” [3]

Massoud Rajavi has substantially proved that he has formed a cult of personality that justifies any immoral, violent and bloody means to achieve his ultimate ends which is gaining power in Iran.
