MEK Iran: U.S. Terrorist Designation Provides Blueprint for Albania

designated by US

The U.S. terrorist designation of Al-Mustafa University provides valuable insight into threats the regime poses in the Balkans. The Albania media must publicize news that can protect its citizens and (PMOI / MEK  Iran) members living in Albania from the terrorist threat posed by the Iranian regime.

On December 8, the United States Treasury Department designated the Iranian regime-based Al-Mustafa International University as a terrorist entity. According to the Treasury Department’s statement, the Al-Mustafa International University uses its international branches to recruit students through the regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force (IRGC-QF) for intelligence collections and operations. The Quds Force is the branch of the IRGC responsible for foreign terrorism and warmongering.

The statement read: “Iran-based Al-Mustafa International University, which claims branches in over 50 countries, enables IRGC-QF intelligence operations by allowing its student body, which includes large numbers of foreign and American students, to serve as an international recruitment network.

The IRGC-QF uses Al-Mustafa University to develop student exchanges with foreign universities for the purposes of indoctrinating and recruiting foreign sources. Al-Mustafa has facilitated unwitting tourists from western countries to come to Iran, from whom IRGC-QF members sought to collect intelligence.”

Impact on Albania

The U.S. terrorist designation of Al-Mustafa University provides valuable insight into threats the regime poses in the Balkans. The Albania media must publicize news that can protect its citizens and the  People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) members living in Albania from the terrorist threat posed by the Iranian regime.

This most recent news was mostly met with silence from the Albanian press. Only one prominent Albanian registered a strong reaction to the terrorist designation, and his reaction was revealing. Olsi Jazexhi used his Twitter account to criticize the U.S. Department of State and defend Al-Mustafa University, referring to it as the “Vatican of Shiism.”

Jazexhi describes himself on Twitter as “an Albanian historian, specialized in the history of Islam, nationalism, and modernity.” Notably, he was also trained at Al-Mustafa International University. Last year Jazexhi received a great deal of unwanted attention after he was exposed by Arthur Zheji on a 360-degree debate program. Zhuji revealed photos of Jazexhi secretly participating in New Horizon, an Iranian regime institution that has been designated as a terrorist organization. Al-Mustafa University is the second terrorist organization he is known to have been associated with.

Jazexhi has also made a series of baseless accusations against the (PMOI / MEK Iran), using the regime’s talking points and propaganda. There is clear evidence that he has been trained by the regime to discredit its only viable opposition. It has also been proven that Iranian regime operatives were behind an attack on (PMOI / MEK Iran), members in Albania in 2018, leading to the expulsion of multiple regime diplomats. It would be wise to follow the example of the United States in designating Al-Mustafa University a terrorist organization given its role in the exportation of terrorism.
