People’s Mujahedin of Iran

From Wikipedia:

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran or the Mojahedin-e Khalq (Persianسازمان مجاهدين خلق ايران‎, translit. Sāzmān-e mojāhedin-e khalq-e irān, abbreviated MEKPMOI or MKO) is an Iranian political–militant organization[5] in exile that advocates the violent overthrow of the current regime in Iran, while claiming itself as the replacing government in exile

It is designated as a terrorist organization by Iran and Iraq, and was considered a terrorist organization by the United Kingdom and the European Union until 2008 and 2009 respectively, and by Canada and the United States until 2012…

The organization engaged in armed conflict with the Pahlavi dynasty in the 1970s and played an active role in the downfall of the Shah in 1979. They hailed “His Highness Ayatollah Khomeini as a glorious fighter (Mojahed)” and urged all to remain united behind him against plots by royalists and imperialists.

From Moon of Alabama:

The original protests over economic issues seem to have died down after President Rouhani confirmed the right to protest, conceded economic problems and promised to take them on…

The terrorist group MEK (NCRI, MKO) “leaked” fake protocols of an alleged government meeting which it claims shows panic over the protests. Allegedly the government fears the leader of the MEK, Marjam Rajavi. The MEK has paid large sums to get support from politicians, including John McCain in Washington and elsewhere. During the Iraq-Iran war it fought against Iran on the side of Iraq. After the U.S. invaded Iraq the MEK was held in special camps under U.S. control. According to a 2012 Seymour Hersh report the U.S. military trained MEK fighters in the U.S. in sabotage and insurgency technics. These people are deeply hated in Iran but feared they are not. Their early engagement in the “protests” via their website and propaganda ops in Iran may point to deeper role in the riots.

From the comments:

Social media also is being used to manipulate the uniformed – many of the many American alt/right commentators are in the vanguard of this anti Iran social media campaign…

It’s as if the MSM simply doesn’t care any more that astute members of the public can see that material from past news reports or even movies is being used as “evidence” of supposed genuine protest or police repression…

What is more likely is a ‘civil war’, like Syria, with ‘moderates’ armed and a flow of terrorists from Afghanistan into the East (where much of this uprising has occurred.)..

The Shia Crescent will be pounded at both ends–Lebanon-Syria and Iran’s eastern region…

The obvious reason [for the protests] is that the US failed to carry out its side of the nuclear agreement, and did not lift sanctions…

Russia and China would destroy any credibility with regard to past and potential future events in Ukraine and Hong Kong if they follow the US line on Iran in the UNSC, and encourage the usage of the same tactics eventually in Russia and China themselves…

[W]ith the closing off of the live human organ traffic flows from syria to turkey then onto tel aviv then haiti new markets need to be opened…

Based on a simple formula that is always used without fail, every act of munificence on US part assumes a major concession. Europe did not get a spine in Iran’s case, as Obama gave a wink and a nod to his fellow globalist-Zionist oligarchy, to “pressure” US to sign a nuclear deal. The deal was cut with Rouhani, a known “reformer”, who was to introduce neoliberal economy, and let US and Europe in. Did not happen. Instead, in response to the growing anti-Shia Saudi cult ISIS and others, Iran opted to support Iraq and Syria. US not happy. Rouhani not happy. Iran firmly tied now to Russia for defence and China for the long range development. US not happy to the extreme. We were thus toooo generous, so all the promises are off, one more Indian treaty. Like the Clinton one with North Korea…

Iran needs neither US nor European investment as China has most of the money to spend, Trump is basically forcing Iran into economic dependence from China. He attacked Pakistan by tweet as well, so part of this marks the US losing Iran and Pakistan to China. How NATO can remain in Afghanistan or Iraq after this is anybody’s guess. General Mattis might have a say in this.

In the end this “regime change light” might prove how impotent the US/Britain/Saudi have become to influence developments…

Trump’s tweets about his “concern” for the Iranian people and “human rights” are particularly hypocritical and vile…

[A] seminal work that details exactly how the color uprising in Syria began, and once again how it was the violence that surprised everyone: Syria: The Hidden Massacre

If you haven’t read it, I earnestly recommend it for a clear and exact picture of what is being ventured in Iran right now…

The propaganda emanating from air waves is unbearable to those with both common sense and critical thinking skills…

I watched similar scenarios in Syria and Libya in early 2011. In Syria, the government arrested some teenagers in Da’ar for writing anti-government graffiti. The parents and others protested the arrests. Some who joined the protests began shooting from within the crowd of parents and others at police, killing 7. Some police shot back and the Western Media reported that Assad was killing his own people. In Libya, some gangs tried to storm army barracks. The soldiers defended. themselves and the same media said Qaddafi was killing his own people.

Very few countries have managed to stand against the US empire. China and Russia are powers in their own right who cannot be attacked by the US without the US being destroyed itself.

Of the smaller countries, it is only those with ideological or religious fanaticism that have stood against the US empire. Makes it a really shitty world. It is Iran’s (or a good section of Iran) religious fanaticism that has enabled it to kick the US out and stand against them. It would be much better if the world did not have to function in this way…

My money is on Iran because of the Israeli-Saudi lobbyists which have infiltrated every aspect of US life.   People like Sheldon Adelson and the Evangelical Christians, would make Trump’s life a living hell if Israel’s core interest is sacrificed.   Trump have no choice…

Obviously the USA and Israel do not realize how hated they are and how any move they make only re-inforce that hatred.
