US trying to hijack fuel hike protests in Iran: Analyst

He emphasized that people in Iran enjoy the right to protest, referring to remarks by President Hassan Rouhani’s chief of staff in which he stressed that all officials should be listening to the protesters’ views.

“Whenever there is some legitimate and legal protests, the United States, the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) as well as people outside the country, the opposition, the son of the past shah step forward in order to hijack the protests, in order to stage violent actions and sabotage,” he said.

This Iranian opposition group was labeled a terrorist organization. Now it has supporters in the White House

(29.07.2019)

People close to President Trump, including national security advisor John Bolton, and Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, are supporters of the Mujahedin Khalq. For years, Bolton and Giuliani have called for a change of government in Tehran and have described the Mujahedin Khalq as a viable alternative to the government of the Islamic Republic.

Fire John Bolton

(22.06.2019)

Make no mistake: This is John Bolton’s war. It’s a war that the current National Security Advisor has been advocating since 2007. He has spoken of bombing Iran on TV, in print, as a government official, and as a private citizen. He has received payment from an Iranian dissident group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MeK), listing a $40,000 speaking fee for “European Iranian Events” in July 2017 on a government financial disclosure form (experts say the total number over a series of years could be significantly higher). He spoke at MeK’s conference in July 2017, promising regime change in Tehran.

Rudy Giuliani calls for Iran regime change at rally linked to extreme group

(30.06.2018)

Giuliani spoke to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an umbrella coalition largely controlled by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MeK), which was once listed as a terrorist organisation in the US and Europe and is still widely viewed as a Marxist-Islamist cult built around the personality of its leader, Maryam Rajavi.

“We are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran,” Giuliani told a crowd of about 4,000, many of them refugees and young eastern Europeans who had been bussed in to attend the rally in return for a weekend trip to Paris.

Giuliani, Bolton Repeatedly Met With Group Formerly Designated a Cult-Like Terror Organization

(27.07.2018)

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, and John Bolton, Trump’s National Security Advisor, met with the group five separate times since Trump’s inauguration, according to Justice Department documents reviewed by TYT. The documents were submitted to the Justice Department by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)—MEK’s political wing—under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, between July 20, 2017 and June 27, 2018.

That group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, or MEK for short, was designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department until 2012, at which point it was removed from the State Department’s terror list after an intense lobbying effort. The group was on the terror list for good reason: MEK has killed several American servicemembers and contractors; attempted to assassinate a top U.S. general; and attempted to kidnap the U.S. Ambassador to Iran, Douglas MacArthur II.

Trump lawyer Giuliani says Iran’s government will be overthrown

(23.9.2018) “It could be in a few days, months, a couple of years. But it’s going to happen,” Giuliani told a crowd at a hotel in Times Square.
Giuliani’s comments were in contrast with the Trump administration’s policy of not seeking a change of government even though it is reimposing sanctions that are crippling Iran’s economy.

In 1992, the MEK conducted a terror attack on the Iranian mission to the United Nations in New York, making it one of the few terror groups to have operated on U.S. soil, according to Daniel Benjamin, the former coordinator for counterterrorism at the State Department.

The group has been widely characterized as a cult.

Trump Luminaries At Iranian Jihadi Cult Conference In Paris

(2.7.2018) Many Trump stalwarts have a peculiar, paid position as lobbyists for the People’s Jihadi Organization (Mojahedin-e Khalq), the Iranian expatriate group aiming to overthrow the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Hence we find Rudy Giuliani addressing their annual convention and pledging regime change in Iran.

Giuliani only has experience of two kinds of regime change. Disastrous and more catastrophic.

Störmanöver gegen Diplomatie: Belgische, deutsche und österreichische Behörden melden iranischen Anschlagsplan. Beweise fehlen

In Wirklichkeit wäre ein Bombenanschlag gegen die NCRI-Großkundgebung zu diesem Zeitpunkt für die iranische Führung äußerst ungelegen gekommen. Andererseits wirkt es auch nicht glaubwürdig, wenn Teheran genau zu wissen vorgibt, dass die zwei in Brüssel Festgenommenen »bekannte Mitglieder dieser Terrororganisation« – gemeint sind die »Volksmudschaheddin« – seien. So formulierte es der Sprecher des iranischen Außenministerium, Bahram Kassemi, in einer am Dienstag veröffentlichten Stellungnahme.
