Mojahedin-e Khalq strategy of armed struggle that constitutes its organizational infrastructure from its very formation has now confronted the organization with a new challenge in spite of its widespread propaganda to convince the West it has made revisions. Although the challenge has failed to break the deadlock over Mojahedin’s proceeding with its revolutionary diplomacy in the outside world, the strategy is the main factor that stabilizes the group’s internal relations especially within Camp
Every year, as a habit and just on the threshold of the anniversary of the June incidents, MKO’s leadership starts a series of measures, but this year can especially be of importance. The propaganda began much earlier with Rajavi’s serial speeches made in an effort to review the history and the relevant post-revolution incidents. Apart from whatever has been said and analyzed so far, there are historical evidences, approved by Rajavi himself, which can better shed light on the reasons and
It has been seven years since the arrest of Maryam Rajavi, the leader and so called president of the Mujahedin–e-Khalq (MKO), a foreign terrorist organization. The arrest took place at the MKO headquarters located in Auver Sur d'Oise, Paris, France on June 17th, 2003. Devoted members faced a shocking challenge as their leader was incarcerated. Some even resorted to a violent extreme political protest over the arrest of Maryam Rajavi when they set themselves ablaze. Two women died as a result
The US forces are at last preparing to abandon the soil they once occupied to bring down Saddam. The time has come to gradually hand over the control of the war-torn country to the rival Parties that are conferring to reach a consensus to form a potential government hopped to well govern Iraq after the coalition forces have left. But in an area less than an hour's drive from Baghdad is located the base which has turned into Mojahedin Khalq Organization’s purgatory, Camp Ashraf. It has turned to
The repeated airplay of a series of inter-organizational sessions discussing MKO’s July’s violent reaction against the entrance of Iraqi forces that left many casualties from the both sides well illustrates the organization’s bias toward cultic and non-democratic practices. The sessions, held in absence of Rajavi and under the title of ‘in defense of camp Ashraf’, mainly focused on the procedures that resulted in the withdrawal of Iraqi police forces. Emboldened by the consequences, the
Martyr Motahhari was a perfect model for all Muslim thinkers. He was a wise man, pious philosopher, God seeking gnostic and a great writer. These good characteristics were quite clear in his works. The books of martyr Motahhari open the gates of knowledge, philosophy and various sciences for the seekers of knowledge.
Every year the great Iranian thinker Morteza Motahhari is commemorated. This is done to appreciate his scientific and ideological efforts and it also expresses the Islamic world's
On April 26 many from among the early MKO sat commemorating the 35th anniversary of the martyrdom of Majid Sharif Vaqefi, of the early founders of MKO murdered by the separated Marxist wing. This event has been studied from different angels in the past three decades and it seems that after years of cliché glorifications and double-faced lamentation over his murder, it is indispensible to depict a truthful image of him in which we have to distinctly distinguish between his ideology and practical
LONDON, May 19 (UPI) -- Iranian families called on U.S. officials in Baghdad to broker visitation rights to Iranian dissidents encamped in their Diyala province enclave.
Members of the dissident People's Mujahedin of Iran are lodged in their Camp Ashraf enclave in Diyala province.
The PMOI opposes the clerical regime in Iran. Washington lists the group as a terrorist organization for its violent methods of opposition, though the group surrendered its weapons in 2003.

The new, preposterous form of propaganda by MKO’s leaders aimed to frustrate the gathering of members’ families who insist to meet their children and relatives enslaved in Camp Ashraf is of great significance to consider. The families’ gathering has entered its fourth month and the organization has already started to get desperate as it has actually churned the internal relations and caused commotion and has made the organization vulnerable to many separations and escapes, as we have witnessed
The establishment of National Council of Resistance aka NCR/NCRI in 1981, in France by five Iranian Opposition groups was part of the consequences of Islamic Revolution in 1979 when some individuals and groups broke out with the regime founded by Ayatollah Khomeini.
The main objective of such a council of which the biggest member was Mujahedin Khalq Organization, was to achieve political power in Iran. The agenda of the primary members was to propagandize their so-called council as the
[MKO’s extensive propaganda campaign for spreading faked information about the true nature of its terrorist destructive cult had set for a new purification project in order to remove dirty stains of terrorist activities and atrocities of their cult from the historical memory of public opinion. To achieve such an unlikely goal, Ali safavi, the group’s henchman, does too much effort to write a series of posts denying the crimes committed by his organization.
