The Guardian’s November 9th piece, “Terrorists, cultists – or champions of Iranian democracy? The wild wild story of the MEK,” is a disgraceful example of western media serving the interests of the religious, terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran.
Devoting three pages of a paper once admired as the voice of dissidents and freedom fighters to a barrage of stale and absolutely false allegations is a stain on Europe’s free press. Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, once famously said, “Tell a lie that’s big enough, and repeat it often enough, and the whole world will believe it.” Apparently, author Reza Arron Merat has taken a page out of Goebbels’ playbook.
