Iran Media Warns of MEK Threat


Infighting has only grown among the Iranian factions as the mullahs face increased international pressure and a people on the brink of uprising, but that is not even the beginning of their problems.

The state-run media continues to acknowledge that the biggest threat to the Iranian government is the opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

The Mostaghel daily wrote Tuesday: “This hardliner faction, which claims to be the heir of the revolution, seemingly does not understand that their actions to have more power at whatever cost and by attacking other factions have created a huge gap in the system. They do not see how the enemy cunningly plots against the [mullahs] in this gap.”

The paper then went on to talk about how the US House of Representatives recently co-sponsored a resolution that condemned Iran for terrorism and human rights abuses, while also supporting the democratic Iran that opposition leader Maryam Rajavi has called for in her ten-point plan. They advised that while Iran expels International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors, the opposition is able to get bipartisan backing from the US that supports the MEK’s and the Iranian people’s desire for regime change.

The infighting reached a new high on February 4, following the terrorism conviction of Iranian diplomat Assadollah Assadi for trying to blow up an opposition rally in France in 2018 and kill Rajavi. The both warring factions, who are not all that different in reality, blame each other for the damage done to their terrorist apparatus.

The paper warned them again that the gaps between them are being exploited by the MEK, although quite how they think the MEK is to blame for the conviction was not clear. Providing evidence in a trial is not exactly bribing the judge.

However, the article does showcase exactly what the conviction means to the government and the West’s appeasement policy, with Mostaghel advising that the hope for the lifting of sanctions has been dashed.

It then warned that the MEK may well incite further anti-regime protests, as they did in 2017 and 2019, but this time much larger; large enough to overthrow the ruling system. In fact, Mostaghel even cited that this has been the aim of the MEK for the 42 years that the mullahs have been in power, with the group exposing the regime’s crimes to limit international and domestic support for the mullahs.
