This article is about the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Previously we had mentioned that, Massoud Rajavi the only MEK member that had escaped execution by the Shah, had been released from prison after the Shah fled and gave a speech advocating how the MEK would bring freedom and democracy to Iran.

In this short series, we will explore what happened to the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) during the 1979 Iranian Revolution. This first part will explore how the MEK were treated by the Shah throughout the 1970s until he left Iran in 1979.

In the years prior to the 1979 Iranian Revolution, political groups opposed to the Shah were rounded up and arrested by SAVAK, the Shah's secret police.

Previously, we’ve spoken about how the Iranian Regime attempts to discredit the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) outside of Iran through disinformation campaigns, using attack websites, disinformation agents, and the shadowy pro-Regime lobby.

Now, we’re going to speak about how the Iranian Regime attempts to discredit the MEK within Iran itself in order to get the Iranian public to turn their backs on the MEK and how that doesn’t work.

With the new developments in US foreign policy and the prospect of the country’s walking away from Iran nuclear deal getting more serious, the question that keeps popping up more than ever is what would be Iran’s approach and what options it would have at its disposal?

Before delving into possible solutions, it should be pointed out that despite Iran’s expectations, it’s now quite clear that the 2015 nuclear deal has actually made the situation more complicated for the Iran, giving rise to different viewpoints within the Iran to deal with the current crisis.

A few weeks ago, we wrote a piece detailing for the Iranian Regime was running a disinformation campaign against the Iranian opposition group, the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) through both disinformation agents and media disinformation.

Today, we will focus on the third leg of the Iranian Regime's disinformation campaign, which is used to both influence policy and discredit the MEK: fellow travellers.

Fellow travellers are people who support the policies of a foreign government, but do not have a formal relationship with it. In the US, the Iranian Regime has fellow travellers known as the “Iran Lobby” to promote the Regime and discredit the MEK at all costs.
