Khamenei’s inescapable nightmare

Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei fears MEK’s growing support in Iran

On the anniversary of the death of Iranian regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini, supreme leader Ali Khamenei praised Khomeini’s bloody legacy of suppressing the Iranian people. He described Khomeini as a “young-minded” person who gave important posts such as the commander of the Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) and important judicial positions to the youth.

Stressing on the youth is a recurring theme in Khamenei’s remarks in the past few months and is in line with his strategy to establish a “young and hezbollahi government” that can guide his regime “through difficult straits.” Although he was careful not to mention the name of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), he couldn’t avoid acknowledging the Iranian opposition’s current role in the society.
