Iran Regime Violently Attacks Retiree Protest

Retirees gather out side the regime's parliament

A large number of retirees staged gatherings outside the regime’s Majlis (Parliament)- November 10, 2019

A large group of retirees gathered outside the regime’s Budget and Planning Organization and the Parliament (Majlis) on Sunday in order to protest their appalling living conditions and the failure of their pensions to meet their basic needs. Retirees from many other provinces across the country traveled to join the protests.

The clerical regime tried to stop the protests from taking place and prevent other people from joining the gatherings by blocking the streets leading to the regime’s parliament in order to deny access to the retirees and their supporters. They also stationed hundreds of suppressive forces, over 50 agents riding motorcycles, and dozens of plainclothes agents on location in advance of the gathering to harass, intimidate, and arrest people for protesting.

Despite the mullahs’ suppressive measures, the crowd of retirees, which included many women held their gathering outside Parliament and chanted:

  • “Imprisoned teachers must be freed”
  • “We are furious over so much injustice”
  • “We will not rest until we get what is our right”
  • “Protest gathering is our inalienable right”

Outside the Planning and Budget Organization, dozens of protesters gathered to have the voices heard, but the suppressive forces of the regime cracked down violently and did not even allow the retirees to speak with one another.

Many protesters were arrested by the regime and had their phones confiscated, even though their only crime was holding a peaceful protest against the Iranian Regime. The mullahs were terrified that the people might release videos or pictures on social media that would expose the regime and go viral so that all the world could see the regime’s abuses.

The Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran wrote: “The Iranian Resistance hails the protesters and urges the residents of Tehran, especially the young people, to support the retirees. It also calls on the United Nations Human Rights Council and the High Commissioner for Human Rights as well as other human rights organizations to take urgent action to secure the release of those detained.”

The Iranian people have been rising up to protest the regime for corruption, humans rights abuses, warmongering, terrorism, and much more besides for nearly two years and the mullahs are terrified that the people will overthrow them because then the regime’s leaders will  be held accountable for their many crimes against the people of Iran, including the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners. Most of the victims were the members or sympathizers of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, Mujahedin-e Khalq or MEK).

US Sanctions on Iran Major Boost for Iranian Resistance

US Treasury Dept sanctions Iranian top officials

US Treasury Dept sanctioned Iranian top officials on November 4, 2019

On  4th November, the government of the United States announced that it was issuing fresh sanctions against a number of high-level officials in Iran. The US Department of the Treasury announced the news on the 40th anniversary of the Iran hostage crisis in which the US Embassy in Tehran was stormed in 1979. The standoff lasted 444 days and 52 American citizens and diplomats were held hostage during this time.

The US Treasury Department announced that the sanctions would affect Iran’s Armed Forces General Staff and nine individuals that are linked to the country’s Supreme Leader – Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. It said that the sanctions are part of an effort to “block funds from flowing to a shadow network of Ali Khamenei’s military and foreign affairs advisors who have for decades oppressed the Iranian people, exported terrorism, and advanced destabilizing policies around the world”.

One of the concerned individuals is former presidential candidate Ebrahim Raisi who currently serves the regime as head of the judiciary.

It has also been rumored that a number of American senators are calling for further sanctions against the regime.

These latest sanctions are highly significant because of who is targeted. Raisi was part of a so-called “death commission” during the 1988 massacre – one of the most horrific crimes against humanity in recent times in which more than 30,000 political prisoners, mainly members and supporters of Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/Iran), lost their life. He personally decided the fate of numerous political prisoners who were extrajudicially murdered following a fatwa that was issued by the Supreme Leader at the time.

 

For the first time ever, the 1988 massacre has become the direct subject of sanctions imposed on Iran. This is a major boost to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the entire Iranian Resistance movement that has been calling for justice for the victims of this terrible crime against humanity. Years of appeasement have allowed the regime to enjoy impunity for this entire time.

The US Treasury Department also emphasized the regime’s warmongering and acts of terror across the region and beyond. Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin said: “Today the Treasury Department is targeting the unelected officials who surround Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei and implement his destabilizing policies. These individuals are linked to a wide range of malign behaviors by the regime, including bombings of the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut in 1983 and the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association in 1994, as well as torture, extrajudicial killings, and repression of civilians. This action further constricts the Supreme Leader’s ability to execute his agenda of terror and oppression.”

The US authorities also pointed to Iran’s meddling in Iraq, saying that the regime’s destructive policies are highly concerning.

For years, many countries have led policies of appeasement towards Iran. This has done nothing more than embolden the regime and the United States’ move to hold the regime accountable for its actions is long overdue.

For many of the more worrying aspects of the regime’s behavior to be addressed directly through sanctions is positive and one can only hope that other countries follow suit.

‌BBC’s Fake News to Demonize the Iranian Resistance in an Effort to Mollify the Mullahs in Iran

BBC-4 fake news against the MEK

BBC-4 fake news against the MEK

The BBC Radio 4 and the World Service broadcasted a bias and unsubstantiated report about the Iranian resistance and the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI-MEK).

The report is based on the accounts and interviews of the so-called “former members of MEK”. It is well known that for many years the Iranian regime has been pursuing its demonizing campaign and terrorist activities against the MEK through so-called “former members”

“The mudslinging by the current functionaries of the mullahs’ Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), disguising themselves as PMOI’s “former members,” have repeatedly been exposed by irrefutable documents and evidence, and condemned, as was the case in a German court’s ruling against Der Spiegel for regurgitating similar smears. The repetitive scheme by the MOIS to tarnish the image of the PMOI in Albania is intended to set the stage for more terrorist acts against the Iranian Resistance,” The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Security and Counter-terrorism Committee’s (NCRICT) statement reads. 

The main purpose of the demonization campaign of the Iranian regime against its main opposition is to pursue terrorist plots against them. “On October 23, 2019, the Albanian Police exposed the details of the clerical regime’s terrorist plots against the PMOI members in Albania through the services of “former members.” In her report, however, the BBC journalist makes no reference to this development, the most important news in Albania regarding the PMOI in recent weeks and months, because she attempts to balance her story with comments from the Iranian regime’s operatives. Last year, Albania expelled the Iranian regime’s ambassador and the MOIS station chief in Tirana for espionage and terrorist activities.” NCRICT statement reads. 

The report also portrays if the Iranian resistance and MEK members are kept in a remote area in an autocracy country and no outsider has any access to them, while they are in Europe and hundreds of international dignitaries visit their home, and the same reporter was there for over 5 hours and was offered to stay there as long as she wanted, privately talk to anyone and visit anywhere she so desired.

“Last summer, some 350 dignitaries from 47 countries spent five days at Ashraf-3, the home of PMOI members in Albania, and saw everything up close and personal. Thus, the absurdities rehashed by the BBC, such as brainwashing, lack of access to the Internet, the denial of freedom of choice to PMOI members, and the defection of 300 or 400 members from the organization in Albania are utterly false and designed to mollify the criminal mullahs ruling Iran,”

“In her report, the BBC’s Linda Pressly says that the PMOI refused to be interviewed for her program. She has deliberately chosen not to report that she and another BBC colleague were the guests of the PMOI at their home, Ashraf-3, for five-and-a-half hours. During the meeting, the PMOI representatives told her that she could stay at Ashraf-3 as long as she wanted, privately talk to anyone and visit anywhere she so desired. The PMOI representatives also told her not to expect the PMOI to be part of a program that was wittingly or unwittingly based on an MOIS script. They also told her that they should not be expected to be part of a program that also included individuals whose objective and mission is collecting intelligence and assisting the Iranian regime to conduct terrorist operations against the PMOI. No one would have criticized German, British, French, and American freedom fighters and patriots for refusing to appear alongside Nazi collaborators.” NCRICT statement reads. 

It is shameful that BBC by its fake news is helping the Iranian regime to turn a security threat into political dissidents, and demonize them in a well-known method of the Iranian regime. No wonder why Iranian people call BBC as Ayatollah BBC, but the question is why they are doing this now, and why the regime needs this propaganda and fake news at this moment.

“The continuing uprisings in Iraq and Lebanon have undermined the strategic depth and one of the strategic pillars of the ruling theocracy ruling Iran. Intensifying international sanctions, in particular against the regime’s supreme leader and his inner circle, coupled with the rise in the Iranian people’s protests and the Resistance Units’ activities not only highlight the reality that time is rapidly running out on the religious fascism ruling Iran, but also pose an unprecedented challenge to its survival.

Under such circumstances, the mullahs have stepped up their terrorist activities and stepped up their campaign of demonization against the Iranian Resistance and the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in order to make it appears as though that there is no alternative to their regime and that the West is better served by continuing the policy of appeasement. The religious dictatorship’s desperation cloaked under the disgraced banner of “former PMOI members,” this time through Radio BBC 4 and the World Service, represents one such effort. “

While the Iranian regime stays engulfed in a series of fatal crises, MEK‘s resistance unites mount their activities across the country.

Detailing some activities of the MEK’s units, the Secretariat of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) released a statement on November 7, 2019.

The statement reads: ” During the first week of November 2019, despite suppressive measures by the clerical regime, the Resistance Units hung and posted large banners carrying pictures of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and Mr. Massoud Rajavi, as well as banners containing their messages in expressways and public locations in Tehran (including in Saveh and Tehran Pars expressways) and in a number of cities, including Mashhad (Khorassan Razavi), Sa’di Township (West Azerbaijan), Ardakan (Yazd), Shorkhrood (Mazandaran), Rasht and Fumanat (Gilan), as well as Golestan, Qom and Hamedan provinces.”

Referring to the resistance units that joined together in a number of cities holding placards, the statement highlights the writings on the placards as: ““With Maryam Rajavi, we can and we must build a new Iran”, “With the expansion and combining Resistance Units we will form units of the Liberation Army,” “Resistance Units are the catalyst in perpetuating the uprisings and guaranteeing their victory,” “Expand Resistance Units in schools,” “Turn every school into a Resistance Unit,” “Rise to continue the uprisings and free Iran from the occupation of the mullahs,” “Freedom is the greatest lesson for Iranian youths,” We can and we must turn every school into a Resistance Unit,” “Expand Resistance Units in Schools,” “Freedom and victory are in your hands,” “With Maryam Rajavi we will take back Iran,” and “Resistance Units, the catalyst to continue the uprisings.”

Iran Regime’s Fake French Tweets

MOIS misuses Tweeter against MEK

The Iranian regime, boxed into a corner, the uprisings against the mullahs’ interference in Iraq and Lebanon, and unable to stop a rising tide of protests by the Iranian Resistance at home and abroad, have resorted to using fake social media profiles to share false news in order to boost its forces morale.

Websites affiliated with the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) and its operatives have posted several pieces citing a fake Twitter account attributed to the French president’s Secretary-General Alexis Kohler, which said that the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) will soon be expelled from France.

The Elysée Palace denied the report and said that this was not the position of Elysée, adding that Kohler does not have a Twitter account.

On November 4, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)’s Committee on Security and Counterterrorism issued a statement to underscore that these tweets bore the clear markings of the Iranian regime.

The account was created in February 2014, but no tweets were published until three months ago. There have been 46 tweets posted on the account since; 40 of which were copy-pasted public material and six, all posted on October 30th, are purely anti-PMOI/MEK nonsense that sounds similar to that coming out of the regime’s propaganda machine. Weirder still, all six tweets were posted simultaneously at 4:06 am Paris time and none of the information contained within appears on any other known French Government websites or media outlets.

How likely is it that Kohler set up a Twitter account five years ago, only started using it in August, and then posted six tweets in a minute bashing a pro-democracy group that has lived peacefully in France for nearly 40 years? Very unlikely.

How likely it is that this is the work of the Iranian regime’s cyber army rather than the French Presidency? Incredibly. This is one of their top tactics. Create the account and leave it dormant until they need to make the changes.

But because the Western media and other social media platforms recognized that this account was fake, the MOIS websites tried to resurrect it after six days.

This is not even the first time the regime has tried this in 2019. In July, they published a fake report claiming that Pierre Cochard, “a French diplomat resident in Israel”, had written a series of tweets about NCRI President Maryam Rajavi visiting Israel to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the head of Mossad. The French Foreign Ministry said that Cochard was not behind the Twitter account.

Maryam Rajavi: Terrorism and Warmongering Are the Strategic Means of Iranian Regime’s Survival- Part I

 

Maryam Rajavi Assemblee Nationale Paris

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), delivers a speech at the French National Assembly on 29 October 2019

In a conference at the French National Assembly on 29 October, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), stressed that since Rouhani took office, four thousand death penalties were issued. She said that she hoped Europe and France would stand with the Iranian people and their legitimate demands and aspirations.

In her speech, Mrs. Rajavi first thanked the members of the National Assembly for their invaluable efforts against the mullahs’ religious rule in Iran in support of the Iranian people and their resistance, stressing that these efforts will never be forgotten.

The President-elect of the NCRI first reviewed the human rights’ record in the past four decades in Iran and said:

” The people of Iran have been struggling for more than 40 years against a regime which is the world’s record holder of executions per capita. Since 2013, when Hassan Rouhani became president, some 4,000 people have been executed. And 120,000 political executions have been carried out under the mullahs’ regime since 1981, including the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in the summer of 1988.”

She then pointed to a new book containing part of the names of massacred MEK members. This book has recently been published by the Call-for-Justice movement.

Mentioning that the 1988 massacre in Iran was the worst state-sponsored massacre since World War II, Mrs. Rajavi said:

” Some of the key perpetrators of this massacre are presently holding positions such as the Head of the Judiciary and the Minister of Justice in Rouhani’s government.

Can you imagine? What kind of justice this is?

This regime has institutionalized discrimination against women in its laws. The highest number of executions of women in the world and their most vicious tortures have been carried out by this regime. Presently, a large number of women are incarcerated in Iran for their peaceful activities or their faith.”

Mrs. Rajavi then discussed the destructive role of the Iranian regime outside Iran and said:

” Outside Iran, the clerical regime is the main cause of instability and wars in the Middle East.

Over the past years, the world has heard a lot about the crimes of ISIS, or Daesh. Their crimes are similar to those committed by the clerical regime in Iran and in the region in the past four decades. They have the same anti-human ideology: dictatorship and savagery under the banner of religion, terrorism, and expansionism, and misogyny. When this ideology dominates a big country like Iran, it becomes a hundred times more dangerous than Daesh, which emerged as a result of the clerical regime’s crimes in Iraq and Syria coupled with international silence.”

Mrs. Rajavi stressed that if inaction vis-à-vis the regime’s crimes in Iran and abroad persists, the clerics and their actions will reproduce groups like Daesh (ISIS). The regime is quite concerned over the latest setback to Daesh.


The regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and their militias slaughter people in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen.

Discussing the mullahs’ terrorism and warmongering in Iran, the President-elect of the NCRI said:

” This medieval regime belongs to the past. Terrorism and warmongering are the strategic means of survival. For this reason, they undermined European efforts, including those by the French President to reduce tensions. They continued attacking tankers in international waters and oil installations in neighboring countries.

Why did the regime step up its terrorism and domestic suppression, and refuse the initiatives put forth by France? Because it cannot moderate itself, because the president carries out the whims of the Supreme Leader because the regime’s leaders want to ensure their own survival instead of caring for the interests of the people, and, finally, because the regime lacks the minimum stability.

They are playing a duplicitous game by using these initiatives to buy time and continue their aggression in the region and expand their ballistic missile program. All the while, in their domestic propaganda, they insult France and Europe.

This is what we have experienced in the past 40 years. If this regime had the slightest capacity for reform, we would have not paid such a heavy price in this long and arduous struggle against it.

The Mojahedin quickly learned that the only means for the survival of this theocratic regime are domestic suppression, foreign wars, and crises-making.

The regime understands only the language of firmness. The ruling mullahs consider silence, leniency, and calls for negotiation as signs of weakness.

While they try to make it appear as though Europe needs mediation, they are the ones in need of it. They have been emboldened because of inaction towards their regime’s outlaw behavior and belligerence.”

An exhibition in this regard was on display all day close to the National Assembly.

MEK: Iran Regime Trying to Project Strength Amid Economic Disaster

Iranian’s protest gatherings and the activities of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) push mullahs into a deadly cliff.  The Iranian Regime is desperate to project strength in the face of the US’s “maximum pressure” campaign and rising international isolation, but the reality is that the mullahs have never been as vulnerable as they are now, according to Dr. Ali Safavi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

In a piece for Issues & Insights on October 24, Safavi wrote: “An important indicator of its sustained troubles is the economy. Severely mismanaged for decades and devastated by endemic corruption, the economy is in complete shambles. In just a few short months since the full adoption of maximum pressure, the economic situation has deteriorated even more drastically. Indeed, the International Monetary Fund said that Iran’s economy will shrink by 9.5 percent this year, more than what was projected previously. So, the continuation of this policy will certainly produce enormous challenges to the regime’s survival.”

He cited that Iranian condensate, an ultra-light and expensive oil, was a prime example of how the US campaign had affected Iranian exports. In 2017, the regime exported over 17 million tons of condensate for $7 billion. This dropped by 45% in 2018 and to near zero in 2019, according to a spokesman for the Iranian Oil, Gas, and Petrochemical Products Exporters’ Association.

He then moved onto the topic of inflation, saying that the regime’s own statistics put the rate of inflation in the period September 2018 and September 2019 as 42.7%, with official statistics showing that the rate of inflation for imported products is close to 150%. This means that the Iranian people’s purchasing power has declined dramatically in just a few short months.

The truth is that the Iranian economy is heading for collapse because unaccountable and corrupt institutions, such as the Office of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), control the majority of economic activity. The decline in Iranian economic activity is increasing by the day because of corruption, embezzlement, inflation, structural flaws, and declining domestic production.

Most state revenues and expenses are stolen by Khamenei and the IRGC to line their own pockets or conduct warfare in the Middle East. This devastation has caused the national currency to drop by 50% in under a year, while the central bank prints more money to address short term demands, which increases inflation. Meanwhile, domestic production has plummeted, which increases unemployment.

Iranian people and the MEK, have a long history of resistance against the religious dictatorship in Iran. In a new round, during the past two years, the Iranian people have been taken to streets to demand regime change. MEK’s resistance units have accelerated their activities in recent months. The economic situation could send the Iranian regime over the edge, something that the regime fears. Mullahs are right to fear it because it will happen sooner or later.

NBC fake news about MEK

NBC’s anti-MEK article challenged again

NBC fake news about MEK

Iranians condemn the NBC fake news about MEK

Earlier this month, NBC News published an article about the Iranian opposition group Mujahedin-e-Khalgh of Iran (PMOI/MEK), which contained so many false and long-disproved allegations that it was an affront to the notion of journalism.

The MEK is known around the world as the main opposition to the terrorist and criminal regime of the mullahs, championing democracy and freedom in Iran, but the article claimed that the MEK was a terrorist organization with ties to Marxism that is not popular within Iran.

Let’s deal with those baseless claims, which are ripped straight from the propaganda machine of the Iranian Regime and only empower the regime’s terrorist activities against MEK members, right now.

First, the MEK is not a terrorist organization. This is something that was proven in the highest courts of law within the US and the EU after the MEK wrongfully ended up on terrorism lists there in an attempt by the West to appease the Regime. The MEK is not on the terrorist watch lists of any of these nations now, but several of the Regime’s organizations are.

In fact, during the MEK’s 2018 Free Iran gathering in Paris, the Iranian Regime’s agents, including a diplomat was caught attempting to bomb the meeting, which was attended by 100,000 people. Thankfully, it was foiled by European authorities.

On the website of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Hossain Jahansouz, Ph.D., wrote: “The Iranian regime is the true terrorist in this story. They continually arrest innocent citizens, dual-nationality citizens, and foreigners based upon false allegations of spying. NBC News should focus efforts on the stories of these individuals instead of spreading fake news about MEK.”

Jahansouz continued: “It is important for NBC News to focus on the facts and provide accurate information to the public regarding the current Iranian regime’s terrorist activities, and support organizations like MEK that seek to overthrow the Iranian government and bring the country into a time of modernization and peace.”

Second, the MEK is supported by the Iranian people and their diaspora, which is the reason that the MEK-led Iranian uprising is going strong, why the MEK’s gatherings across the world have so many attendees, and how the MEK get the money needed to keep going.

Third, the MEK is not a Marxist organization. When MEK leaders were imprisoned by the Shah in the 1970s, Marxists usurped the party, but upon the release of the sole surviving MEK member Massoud Rajavi in 1979, the Marxists were kicked out and the organization restored.

French Conference Over Iran Human Rights Abuses

Maryam Rajavi delivering a speech at the French National Assembly, October 29, 2019

The Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran (CPID) held a conference in the French National Assembly about the human rights situation in Iran on Tuesday, with Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the National Council of the Resistance of Iran (NCRI), serving as keynote speaker, where they addressed the need to hold the Iranian regime accountable for its abuses.

During the conference, titled “Iran: repression, belligerence, need for a new approach”, several French deputies from across the political spectrum have underlined the need for a new policy towards the regime following the failure of recent international initiatives contains the regime’s destabilizing role in the Middle East.

At the conference, Rajavi introduced a new book containing the names of 5,000 of the 30,000 members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) who were executed by the regime in 1988.

She also drew attention to women’s rights abuses in Iran, noting that there is “institutionalized discrimination against women” in Iran’s laws, with “a large number of women are incarcerated in Iran for their peaceful activities or their faith”.

Rajavi also stressed that the regime takes foreign nationals hostage and uses its embassies to commit terrorist attacks in the West, which undermines European efforts to reduce tensions with Iran. She also explained that the regime will not change its behavior, rather it has been emboldened by the appeasement policies of the West, so it must be overthrown by the people.

Rajavi said: “France must take the initiative to open the path to democracy in Iran, and to support human rights, the Iranian people and the Resistance. This is the only way we can restore peace in the Middle East and bring about stability and democracy.”

Michèle de Vaucouleurs, Vice-Chairperson, and Chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran noted that the Committee informed French parliamentarians and public opinion on human rights and women’s rights in Iran. She said that during her recent visit to Ashraf 3, the new home for the PMOI/MEK in Albania, she saw a source of hope for Iranians who hope to liberate their country from a religious dictatorship.

MP André Chassaigne said that Iran is boiling over with popular protests and that the only solution is to support the Iranian people in addressing the regime’s violations of human rights, while Philippe Gosselin, the co-chair of the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran, praised   Rajavi’s ten-point plan for freedom and democracy in Iran.

MP Yannick Favennec, a member of the Defense Committee of the French Parliament and Vice-Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran, said that Iran was destroying the security of the region by increasing instability.

Favennec said: “Foreign war and negotiations without end lead to more aggression and threats. We must think about change and support regime change by the Iranian people and the Iranian resistance.”

NBC News Needs to Stand on Right Side of History Regarding Iran

 

NBC fake news

In favor of the Iranian regime, NBC tries to tarnish MEK through fake news

NBC News recently published an article that smeared Iranian Resistance movement, Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK), which is the leading anti-fascism movement in the Middle East and has fought two dictatorships over the past 55 years.

In the October 17 article, NBC News failed to note that some 120,000 MEK members and sympathizers have been executed by the Regime since 1979; instead, it appears the writer was deceived by the mullah’s disinformation apparatus over the MEK and quoted only sources that are opposed to the MEK.

Sources like Daniel Benjamin a former State Department official has failed to criticize the mullahs or condemn the Regime or its Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) for its many documented human rights violations or terrorist activities.

This makes the article a one-sided hit piece, not worthy of the term journalism.

Dr. Sofey Saidi, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), wrote: “It is unfortunate that the NBC News chose the latter, smear option. This shameful choice, especially in the age of global, borderless information dissemination, is unacceptable. The decision to publish untruth seems intentional and attempts to misinform the public. “

The specialist in the Middle East, Latin America, and Global Politics explained that it is inexcusable that NBC News was deceived by the Iranian Regime, especially when the publishing of these lies has the potential to cause enormous damage.

She cited the recent revelation by Albanian police that they thwarted a planned attack by a Tehran-backed terrorist Quds Force, an elite unit of the IRGC that is responsible for foreign operations, against the MEK in Albania in 2018. It’s also worth noting that Iran’s ambassador to Tirana and another diplomat were expelled from Albania last December for threatening Albania’s security.

The Albanian police’s revelation came on the 36th anniversary of the Beirut Barracks Bombings, conducted by Iran-backed Hezbollah, which killed 220 US Marines, 18 sailors, and three soldiers. This terrorist act is one of the reasons that the US State Department has designated Iran as the State Sponsor of Terrorism since 1984.

Dr. Saidi wrote: “Now more than ever, it is imperative for information outlets such as NBC News to familiarize the public about Iran’s history of brutal suppression and its worldwide terrorist network. To warn the officials and policymakers about the consequences of appeasing the tyrannical rulers in Iran. To warn about the global threat of a nuclear-powered tyrant in Iran. To warn about Iran’s meddling in Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, Yemen and its role as the source of war and instability in the region.”

She said that NBC News should tell the Iranian people’s uprising and stand on the right side of history.
