The Iranian Resistance group, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK), was wrongfully on the US’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organisations (FTOs) until 2012, but how did it wind up there in the first place?
Let’s take a little look.

The MEK was put on the FTO but evidence suggests it had little to do with the MEK’s actions or beliefs. Instead, the US wanted engagement with the Iranian Regime, which apparently looked to be a permanent fixture in the Middle East by the 1990s, and the simplest way to do that was to label the MEK as a terrorist group. The West didn’t see regime change as an option then.

An infamous lobbyist for the Iranian Regime recently wrote an op-ed that supposedly debunked myths and misconceptions that Americans have about Iran, but predictably his piece was filled with lies and propaganda.

Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council, first attempted to debunk the idea that the nuclear deal only delays the Regime from getting a nuclear bomb, rather than stopping it altogether, because of so-called sunset clauses that allow certain nuclear deal restrictions to expire. Even former President Barack Obama admits that this is how the deal works, so how was Parsi going to debunk it?

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran or Mojahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) is a political group dedicated to the realisation of a free and democratic Iran, but how did it start?

On September 6, 1965, the MEK was founded by three engineers Mohammad Hanifnejad, Said Mohsen, and Ali-Ashgar Badizadgan.

After a fatal and long-lasting muteness, Khamenei spoke on the thirteenth day of the uprising and showed his panic and fear over the people’s fury, with an inverse tone, he reiterated the fact that the Iranian Resistance and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) are the alternative to his regime.

Khamenei stated: the MEK "had been ready since months ago ... since several months ago (they were ready) to organize, and meet this person and that one; and to select some people inside the country, find them and help them, so they would come and call on the people. They (MEK) announced their call, and made the slogan “No to high prices”. Well, this is a slogan that everyone likes. They (MEKO managed to attract some people with this slogan. And then, they(MEK) could come to the scene and pursue their goals, and make the people follow them”.

December 29, 2017. Reuters reported, Iranian police dispersed anti-government protesters in the western city of Kermanshah on Friday, the Fars semi-official news agency said, as protests spread to Tehran and apparently several other cities a day after rallies in the northeast.

The outbreak of regional unrest reflects growing discontent over rising prices and alleged corruption, as well as concern over the Islamic Republic’s costly involvement in regional conflicts such as Syria and Iraq.
