The Message Behind Iranian Regime’s Extreme Actions Against MEK

Iran Protests a daily scene in Iran

A scene of daily protests in Iran, objecting the corrupt and inhumane policies of the dictatorship ruling Iran.

The Iranian regime has made international headlines over the past few weeks, after an attempted terrorist attack on the annual gathering of the Iranian opposition and supporters of the MEK, was foiled when the terrorists were arrested with 500 grams of explosives in Belgium. The mastermind of the planned attack, Assadollah Assadi, an Iranian diplomat stationed in Vienna, was arrested in Germany and charged with espionage and conspiracy to commit murder for planning the attack.

 

Since the terrorist attack by the regime and its minions was thwarted on June 30th, many articles have been published in international media about the Iranian regime and the reasons for the attack.

 

The regime has repeatedly characterized the MEK as an organization with little power, but its actions prove differently. The regime, in fact, is afraid of the MEK, because it knows that it poses a viable alternative to the clerical regime, which is growing weaker each day. The Iranian regime is not only a government with the moral turpitude to carry out a terrorist act; it is also a government that would dispatch its diplomats to plan a terrorist attack against a resistance organization. This is a government desperate to hold onto power and terrified of the alternative to its rule. The regime is clearly afraid of the MEK and the threat it poses to its tenuous grip on power.

 

The regime took great risks to attempt this attack, and in fact, the attack failed, and an Iranian regime diplomat was arrested, causing massive upheaval within the ranks of the regime leadership and a diplomatic nightmare. For the regime to attempt such a daring terrorist attack and risk embarrassment on an international level, the fear of the MEK must have been great.

 

The MEK has always been the primary target of the mullahs’ ire, as it has been the group most likely to replace the mullahs’ tyrannical rule with democracy and freedom.

 

Recent reports indicate that the regime has resorted to sending its own people to staged rallies by those claiming to be part of the opposition movement. The Jomhouri daily published a report on June 26th about regime operatives infiltrating rallies:

“This crowd (of Khamenei operatives) have become so audacious that a number of them were seen directing a group of people towards the parliament with chants of ‘Long live Reza Shah’ (referring to the Pahlavi dynasty in power prior to the 1979 revolution). They were also escorted by the police. These people are the same group of individuals seen taking part in Friday prayers and the various marches.”

The regime grows more desperate by the day as the Iranian opposition (the MEK), grows stronger. It is clear that the ruling powers are afraid of the resistance. The people are ready for change. The time has come to make that change a reality.

John Bolton represents a new chapter in US-Iran relations

Donald Trump’s appointment of John Bolton as the president’s national security adviser is a strong indication of the stance Trump will adopt towards the Iran deal. The president has until May 12th to amend the Iran nuclear deal with his Chinese, European and Russian partners. John Bolton’s tough, no-nonsense approach will be a valuable addition to the negotiations.

Who is John Bolton?

John Bolton is a highly principled adviser with experience in the Reagan and George W. Bush administrations. He was undersecretary for Arms Control from 2001 to 2005 and also completed a brief spell as ambassador to the United Nations, where he promoted non-proliferation resolutions towards North Korea and Iran.

He has previously been a prominent supporter of regime change in Iran and expressed solidarity with the Iranian opposition, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK). He spoke at a MEK-organised event in Paris last year where he discussed the importance of regime change in Tehran.

He is a shrewd adviser with a deep knowledge of the balance of power and influence around the globe. His experience in both the UN and previous presidential administrations has also equipped him with a comprehensive understanding of governmental bureaucracy. In what is arguably the most influential position in the US foreign policy mechanism, he should be able to bring US foreign policy to apply further pressure to the oppressive Iranian regime.

Bolton represents a new chapter in US policy towards Iran

Rather than persist with the decades-old policy of appeasement towards the Iranian government, Bolton’s appointment could indicate the beginning of a firmer policy towards Iran.

The Iranian regime has been uncooperative to demands from the international community. Bolton would prefer to take a more aggressive stance with Hassan Rouhani. While he does not advocate military intervention, he would prefer to see tougher sanctions that would leave Rouhani’s regime with no other option but to comply and abandon their hard-line, disruptive policies, or face economic ruin.

This would bring US policy into alignment with the position of the Iranian people

Recent MEK-organised demonstrations show the appetite of the Iranian people for change. Tens of thousands of protestors flooded the streets across the country demanding regime change. This was just the beginning. Maryam Rajavi, MEK leader and president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has called for the new year to be a “year full of uprisings”.

It is in the interests of the United States to adopt a stance towards the Iranian regime that reflects the will of the Iranian public. The mullahs in Iran have tried to suppress the democratic message of the MEK. However, it is now resonating across Iran’s rural and urban populations.

The MEK also enjoys bipartisan support across the US Congress and Senate. Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich, Howard Dean and Bill Richardson have all expressed solidarity with the MEK and supported regime change in Iran. Senior advisers in the Obama administration, like James Jones, also advocated a tougher stance against Hassan Rouhani’s government. With both the Iranian public and both sides of the House demanding a tougher attitude towards the Iranian regime, the time is right for Trump to adjust the position of the White House.

John Bolton might be the man to steer the US ship towards regime change in Iran. The title of his memoir, Surrender Is Not an Option, says it all. In Iran, surrender is not an option. The stakes are too high. The people have spoken. They want regime change. Now it is time for the international communities to help bring the will of the people to fruition. The days of US appeasement to Iran may be numbered. It is time to usher in a new chapter in US-Iran relations.
