Regime’s Highest Officials: Beware of MEK in Society

During a provincial trip to Hamedan province, the Iranian regime’s president Ebrahim Raisi said: “Since the victory of the Islamic Revolution, we have been hit by the hypocrisy (regime’s description to defame the MEK). The hypocrites are very dangerous. These days, one should be careful and wary of the elements of the hypocrites and their influence.”

Coving Raisi’s trip, the state-run Mehr news agency wrote: “The president emphasized that it is difficult to recognize hypocrisy and pointed out that they should be exposed to everyone.”

At a state-organized ceremony in Mashhad, the regime’s parliament speaker Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf said: “Today, the enemy seeks to destroy the legitimacy of our state in public opinion. Nowadays, a revolutionary must act and move correctly in the field of economic war and cognitive war by defending the beliefs of the revolution and also relying on the beliefs of God and the people.”

Warning about the MEK, Qalibaf added: “The hypocrites are still there and they have only changed the tools of their struggle. Back then, the enemy wanted to endanger the survival of the Islamic Republic, and today it wants to damage the image and legitimacy of the system. In the past, the enemy wanted to eliminate us with war and today it is trying to achieve its sinister goals with economic sanctions.”

Firm Policy Against Iran’s Regime Ensures Global Security

There is no doubt that the Iranian regime is a warmongering regime that has become an international pariah. At the start of its reign, the regime started two major wars. The first one was its war against the Iranian people; the second was its regional meddling and warmongering, as well as its support of global terrorism. Both of which are still ongoing today.

Over the past four decades, the regime has benefited from many regional and international disputes. From the first gulf war in 1990 to Afghanistan’s war in 2001, to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the wars in Syria and Yemen. Now, the regime is showing its support for the war in Ukraine.
