MEK-Iran: The World Ends Iranian regime’s Terrorism for Good
November 22nd, 2020 was a memorable day when the Iranian diaspora, supporters of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/ PMOI) engaged in a Twitter storm. The topic of concern was the international community’s failure to respond to Iran’s terror plot, as well as sharing personal experiences concerning the foiled bomb attempt against the June 2018 Free Iran event, which could have ended in thousands of deaths had it taken place.
Later this week the trial of Assadollah Assadi, a senior Iranian diplomat, will take place. He was the mastermind behind the above bombing attempt. The size of the attack had never been seen before in Europe. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the main opposition to the religious dictatorship ruling, was the primary target. Other important people like Trump’s lawyer Rudi Guiliani, Stephen Harper, the former Canadian Prime Minister, and Ingrid Betancourt, former Senator of Colombia, were among the very many prominent dignitaries that attended the gathering.
The Iranian diplomat was a man called Assadollah Assadi, who was the third secretary at the Iranian Embassy in Vienna. Two of the other accomplices were a Belgian-Iranian couple and there was one other whose identity is yet to be revealed.#MEK Iran #WeStand4FreeIran pic.twitter.com/qRWF3Nv8nF

There were other murderers besides Assadi who were present at the bomb attempt, who was named as Amir Saadouni and his wife, Nasimeh Naami. They were attempting to bomb the event, targeting Iran. According to a report written by Peter Conradi on 14th November 2020 in the Sunday Times, planning the deadly plot was related to the rise in popular protests in December 2017. The Iranian opposition was blamed by Ali Khamenei, the country’s supreme leader, as perpetrators. He called these freedom and democracy fighters the “enemies of the republic”. Not long after, he said quite definitely that Iranian streets were controlled by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the most important element in the NCRI.
What the twitter storm was all about was the lack of action by the international community against the regime’s deadly confrontations against the people’s actions in their own country. There was a call for all of Iran’s embassies to be closed as there is little doubt that they are being used as bases to organize action against Iran’s expats in Europe.
Zolal Habibi, who took part in the 2018 resistance rally, scribbled on Twitter on 22nd November wondering whether when a ‘diplomat’ gives explosives to operatives who have been told to target thousands in Paris, is that not enough to oust all Iranian diplomats from European countries and shut down their embassies?
when a 'diplomat' hands explosives to operatives to target 100k in Paris, isn't that enough to expel all Iranian diplomats from European countries and close their embassies?

Saeid Maghsoodi, wrote on Twitter on 22nd November that this wasn’t just one ordinary bombing/ attempted assassination against a single individual. It was an attempt at mass murder of a large gathering, which may have had a serious effect for countries that were represented at the event.

Dowlat Nowrouzi, the NCRI-UK Representative, tweeted that Iran’s religious dictatorship had given out orders to bomb to pieces the Paris Free Iran gathering that attracted more than 100,000 participants. She said that the regime wanted to eliminate Iran’s organized opposition and its democratic alternative under the leadership of NCRI President-elect, Maryam Rajavi.
