NCRI - By enforcing a policy of an all-out censorship and disregard for The People's Mojahedin Organization Of Iran (PMOI/ MEK) on all the media outlets across Iran, for many years Iranian regime had tried to neutralize the popularity of MEK as the only organized resistance against the religious fascism ruling Iran, but it didn’t work and the rising trend of youths joining MEK proved it wrong, as a result the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) came up with a totally reverse conclusion, which was: instead of continuation of the failed media policy of ‘Disregarding MEK ’, regime should try to ‘publicize but tarnish’ its image.
NCRI - Sadegh Zibakalam, a political science professor at Tehran State University, and associate of former President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who was himself responsible in dispatching of university students to war with Iraq, in which many of them got killed, recently admitted to the crimes of regime against MEK, his statements were published in the state run ‘Gooya-News’ website.
Zibakalam stated: “Iranian regime, has killed thousands of MEK members just like killers of Imam Hossain (a 7th century revolutionary Shiite leader who made the ultimate sacrifice for social justice in the face of corruption and tyranny).”
Americans must be wary of Iranian influence over US media
Many seemingly important news reports that gained attention in 2016 turned out to be marred with falsified information.
A major threat to the dissemination of true information to U.S. citizens lies in the existence of suspicious figures sent by foreign countries for the purposes of espionage and influence over U.S. foreign policy.
NCRI - Desperate moves to counter the rising popularity of MEK by Iranian regime.
Following a recently published report by The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence, regarding the power and progress of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), in which regime’s officials have fearfully admitted the youth’s tendency and attraction toward Mojahedin (MEK) as well as the high status of Mojahedin at home and at the international level, Hashemi Nejad the director general of a state - Funded ‘Habilian’ foundation stated:
NCRI - Mohammad-Ali Jaberzadeh, one of the most seasoned and senior officials of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) passed away on Saturday, February 11. He died in Paris after a long battle with various illnesses and health complications. He was 68.
Mr. Jaberzadeh was the Chairman of the National Council of Resistance of Iran's Political and Strategic Studies Committee. During his 48-year-long ceaseless struggle for the liberation of the Iranian people, Jaberzadeh faced off with two dictatorships, first the Shah's and later that of the velayat-e faqih (absolute clerical rule). He endured years of imprisonment and torture in the process.
NCRI - Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran described the horrible crime in Saydnaya prison an unprecedented crime against humanity that was committed by the Assad regime's henchmen, with the support of the mullahs' anti-human regime, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and its intelligence apparatus.
Many methods used in this crime against humanity, are similar to mass executions in Iran, in particular the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988.
