The “Manufactured crisis” ended, the MKO left in Catastrophe

“After decades of tensions and distrust, 12 years of hope and fear and 22 months of intense, difficult, highly technical and political negotiations, we had finally made it,” write Mrs. Frederica Mogherini in her enlightening piece on the Guardian titled “The Iran agreement is a disaster for Isis”. The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy believes that the nuclear agreement between Iran and the West will open a new chapter in the relations between the two sides. She explains one of the main reasons for her trip to Tehran concerns with the implementation of the agreement. Besides, she writes of another duty she and other sides of the agreement have to build on “the historical result” they have achieved in Vienna which is” an alliance of civilizations“ that according to her can be “our most powerful weapon in the fight against terror” and sectarianism in the region , particularly ISIS. [1] Mrs. Mogherini’s good will for peace making seems truly honest but why the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO) condemns her trip to Tehran?

The so-called National Council of Resistance of Iran the propaganda arm of the MKO claims that the Iranian Government is in decline and Europe should not tie its future to it! As he claims Europe will lose the friendship with Iranian people in future!

The future the NCR tries to imagine for Iran is entirely based on the mirage its leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi have been portraying for more than three decades. This is while Mogherini writes, “The Vienna deal tells us that we all have much to earn if we choose cooperation over confrontation”. She believes that hard work is needed to create peaceful mutual relationship but she points out,”We Europeans have a long tradition of cultural and economic relationship with Iran. Before sanctions began in 2005, cooperation between our parts of the world spanned many areas, from energy to trade. But our shared interests go well beyond the economy.” As she clarifies there is enough political will that “could open unprecedented possibilities of peace for the region”. [2]

The MKO leaders have other reasons to be mad at European countries. In the aftermath of the nuclear agreement, delegations of Germany and France also travelled to Tehran to expand economic and political relationships with Iran.  “German business leaders landed in Iran with Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel and have said they have high hopes to renew contacts”, reported DW. “Sigmar Gabriel, Germany’s vice chancellor and economy minister, flew to Iran on Sunday, becoming the first top Western official to visit the country since world powers and Tehran reached a historic nuclear deal.” [3]

 “On the first visit to Iran for 12 years by a French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius conveyed an invitation from President Francois Hollande to Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani to visit France”, reported Reuters . “Fabius met with Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif and was also due to meet Rouhani on his one-day visit, two weeks after a landmark deal under which Western sanctions are to be lifted in exchange for limits on Iran’s nuclear program.” [4]

Thus, the “manufacture crisis” made by the MKO-Israel alliance –as the famous historian journalist Gareth Porter investigated—seems to be ended.[5] The MKO now is endeavoring to ally itself with Zionist warmongers of the Congress to survive.

The two independent journalists Ali Gharib and Eli Clifton investigated the alliance between the Zionist lobby the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that declared war on nuclear accord and the MKO: “AIPAC, Washington’s most influential pro-Israel lobby reportedly plans on spending $20 million over the next two months urging Congress to vote against the deal. But its efforts at a full frontal attack on the accord, inked by the P5+1 (the US, China, France, Russia, the UK, and Germany) and Iran is leading to some politically awkward alliances.” [6]

They affirm that an advocacy group called Citizens For a Nuclear Free Iran (CNFI) is an off-shoot of the AIPAC, “ Now that the campaign is taking shape, the AIPAC spin-off appears to be relying on a typical, if troubling, ally of American groups and individuals opposed to diplomacy with Iran.” They highlight the MKO’s part in this notorious alliance, ”Namely, two items on the website of Citizens for a Nuclear Iran, one of which was later removed, featured an exiled Iranian opposition group called the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK).” [7]

The MKO is publicized in the multi-million dollar advertisement made by the Zionist advocacy lobby CNFI. As Gharib and Clifton state, the ad “incorporates b-roll footage from a press conference held by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which the State Department deemed the MEK’s “political wing” (earning it a corresponding terrorist designation). “ [8]

They add, “The footage in the Nuclear Free Iran ad shows Alireza Jafarzadeh, a longtime Washington-based MEK apparatchik, at the National Press Club using a pointer aimed at a satellite photograph.” [9] This must be one of the hundreds press conferences held by the MKO propaganda machine in which Alireza Jaafarzadeh, Sona Samsami, Mohammad Mohaddessin …or any other MKO agent repeats the repeated unproved claims of the so-called revelations on the Iranian nuclear program.

“Rajavi counts among her supporters one of Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran’s advisory board members: former Democrat and former senator Joe Lieberman,“ Gharib and Clifton report. “Lieberman has made several appearances at MEK events, including this June when he appeared at a MEK confab in Paris.” [10]

There are a large number of warmongers who oppose any deal with Iran and support the MKO as an alternative for the Iranian government. On the MKO website you may see a list of people who had denounced Mogherini’s trip to Iran, from US lawmakers to Foreign Minister of the UAE. Good news for the MKO’s propaganda, skeptical lawmakers of the US Congress —some of whom induced by the MKO lobby and mostly backed by Israeli lobby — every day they challenge Secretary Kerry for not being firm on Iran. So what?

Seemingly, The MKO and its sponsors should understand that the aspirations of both sides of the agreement for peace and understanding are not easy to underestimate. It seems that the time for fabricating half-truths and false evidences about the Iranian nuclear program is over.
