We had to use the capsules in case we got arrested by the Iranian regime. We had to break the glass, scratch our tongues with it and within a few seconds commit suicide, so we couldn't reveal any organizational secrets to our captors.
Marjan Malek (former MEK member): The MEK are masters of human psychology. When they meet someone they spot that person's weak points. They talked to me and they realized that I had many problems with my ex-husband who used to beat me. So they
The Terrorist NCRI
In the beginning of March 2003, the news hit the PMOI like a bombshell. Its legal front had suffered a terrible blow. The news spread through the press agencies:
“The Unites States has outlawed the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCR!), political front of the People’s Mojahedin, the State Department announced. The main armed opposition movement to the Iranian regime had its assets frozen.
The decision was published in the American ‘official journal’, the Federal
The following article was sent by one of the users. Regardless of any judgment concerning the political views of the author, what is important is her fair reflection of some points on the recent support of some Americans in behalf of MKO. It should be noted that Mojahedin.ws welcomes similar opinions and respects political stances.
There are evidences of a possible change in the policy and position of America towards Mojahedin Khalq [MKO, MEK, PMOI, NCR, NLA]. Regardless of the enthusiastic
At the time of operation Eternal Light, we were isolated in camp Ashraf in Iraq and didn't know anything about what was going on in Iran. We were under the illusion that if we attacked Iran, the people of Iran would help us and then we could topple the Islamic Republic. That was wrong and most Iranians we came across fought against us.
Narrator: The group settled at camp Ashraf, a military base one hundred kilometres north of Baghdad. In this isolated setting, Rajavi
“The ‘political remarriage’ of Rajavi with Maryam Azdanlou, wife of one of his closest staff members who was forced to leave her publicly, is presented as ‘one of the most important revolutionary and ideological decisions ever taken by the Mojahedin’.”
About the Kurds
Soon it would the turn of Mr Abdel Rahman Ghassemlou, leader of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (DPIK). Mr Rajavi criticized him for “having accepted talks with Khomeini, thus recognizing his
Mukasey, Giuliani Falter in Defending Support of Group Tagged as Terrorist Outfit, Prof. Cole Says
The federal law that prohibits "material support" of groups that the State Department labels terrorist organizations has been upheld against constitutional challenges by the Supreme Court and defended by former Attorney General Michael Mukasey and other conservative politicos, such as Rudolph Giuliani and Tom Ridge.
But when constitutional law expert David Cole recently pointed out
MEK’s American supporters want to use it as a battering ram against the Iranian regime, and yet this exile group has even less credibility than the Chalabi organization did: what support they had inside Iran evaporated when they fled to Iraq and took up with Saddam Hussein
Rep. Peter King (R-New York) is the kind of in-your-face demagogue that only the state of New York could have elevated to high office. From his perch in the 3rd congressional district, in Long
In 1981 Rajavi escaped to France. Soon after, the MEK began evolving into a cult. Rajavi declared that the organisation should be run equally by a man -himself - and a woman. The problem was Rajavi's wife had died fighting the Islamic government. He needed a new partner to join him at the top of the organisation. Rajavi's deputy Mehdi Abrishamchi voluntarily divorced his wife Maryam, so Rajavi could marry her. Massoud Rajavi's marriage was the beginning of a series of ideological and
Jean Gueyras goes on: “Worse, this institution, whose aim was to unify the entire opposition in exile, slowly became an organisation totally dominated by the Mojahedin.
In Iranian opposition exile circles, people already began to talk about the ‘Massoud Rajavi’s sectarian and doctrinal rigidity’ and of his repetitive jargons and sloganeering. These were the barriers to all freedom of opinion. They kept the NCRI from becoming a viable solution to Iran regime.
Two separate pieces of information have convinced me of the likelihood that the Mossad and the Iranian dissident group, Mujahadeen e-Khalq (MK) are knocking off some of Iran’s top nuclear scientists. As I’ve posted here, Haaretz’s Yossi Melman has written that the hand of Mossad is in yesterday’s assassination and near assassination of two senior Iranian nuclear researchers. Earlier this evening, a respected Iranian-American academic who knows whereof he speaks, told me he is convinced that the
A bully or a mafia godfather would never run out of excuses to punish an insubordinate soul in “his territory.” Accordingly, U.S. imperialism has been very creative in invoking all kinds of excuses to punish Iran for its aspirations to national self-determination.
To justify the criminal economic sanctions against the Iranian people, the U.S. has for years insisted that Iran is supporting terrorism, threatening U.S. national interests, and pursuing a program of nuclear weapons manufacturing
Lord Corbett knows better than anyone the position of the Government of Iraq toward the MEK. He knows that they are slowly but surely dismantling this dangerous destructive cult in ways that preserve and protect the lives of the residents. He knows that Rajavi has threatened a Jonestown-style mass suicide if anyone tries to challenge his control of the group. Witnesses to the self-immolations of June 2003 in London and Paris can be in no doubt about the veracity of this threat. It is therefore
The Iran Policy Committee, a neoconservative-led group associated with the Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK), held a press conference today [Sept 9th] in Washington to reveal what it said was a previously undisclosed Iranian nuclear site near the Iranian city of Qazvin.
The MEK, which, along with its political front group, the National Council for Resistance in Iran (NCRI), had representatives at the presser, claims it discovered the site through an “internal network of sources” in Iran.
Patrick Disney writes about US support for the MEK in FP :
Thus, the MEK organization has literally zero support among the Iranian people. The closest thing to how Iranians feel about the MEK is how Americans feel about al-Qaeda. It's not even a subject of debate.
Which is why it's bizarre that members of Congress would want to lend US credibility to such an organization.
There's nothing particularly bizarre about it. It doesn't matter what the people of Iran actually think. The people in
Text of report headlined "Former member of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization [MKO] leadership council reveals Mas'ud Rajavi's sexual exploitation of MKO women" published by Iranian newspaper Keyhan on 9 September quoting Habilian Association.
A former member of the Monafeqin's [hypocrites - reference to Iranian opposition group Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization] leadership council has revealed the sexual exploitation of the women in this group by the Monafeqin leader.
According to a report by
“Cult of the chameleon” is a news peace about the notorious cult of Mujahedin-e khalq (o.k. a MKO, MEK, NCRI, PMOI, NLA…) which is lead by Rajavis. MKO is the same terrorist organization which has so far killed more than 12000 Iranians and even a larger number of people in other parts of the world especially Iraq.
This documentary made by Aljazeera international in October, 2007 reveals a part of MKO manipulation process and human rights abuses as well as their atrocities in Iran.
To stripe somebody of his individual identity to replace it with a new identity has been a common process in majority of all contemporary cults. This cult identity is created by sophisticated mind control techniques and it does not represent the whole individual. Steven Hassan stresses that “[cult] members are taught to suppress negative personal thoughts and emotions. They are trained to speak only positively of their involvement. When the cult member says he is "happy," it is usually the cult
What is the meaning of the ‘Salvation Dance’ (described by Mrs. Batool Soltani, ex-member of the PMOI Leadership Council in her autobiographical writing), which was performed by the Muslim Leadership Council’s women in front of Massoud Rajavi, the leader and founder of the Rajavi cult?
In this so-called Salvation Dance (nude dancing), the women of the Leadership Council were indoctrinated through cultic-religious psychological manipulation to remove all their clothes in front of their guru
As already predicted, triumphalism was the order of MKO media and propaganda machine for nearly two weeks since the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the State Department review designation of Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO, MEK, PMOI, NCR, and NLA) as a foreign terrorist organization. This was not MKO displaying itself as the winner of a petition but a terrorist organization shaking its fist at the world. However, now the cloud of the triumph subsided and anything
Perhaps this is America's answer to Washington's embarrassment over the Iranian scientist who got away this week:
At least 21 people, including members of the elite Revolutionary Guards, were killed and 100 wounded in suicide attack at a Shi'ite mosque in the southeast Iranian city of Zahedan on Thursday, Iranian media reported.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the two suicide bombings in front of Zahedan's Grand Mosque, although a lawmaker said he believed the Sunni rebel
