As infighting among the Iranian regime grows, the state-run media is openly admitting that the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) is playing a vital role in organizing the resistance against the regime, both by the Iranian people and the international community.
In a Sunday editorial, the state-run Mardom Salari daily admitted that increased sanctions against the Iranian regime could be linked back to the PMOI/MEK’s revelation about the mullahs’ nuclear weapons program in 2002.
Nevertheless, the state-run paper tried to say that these were lies, but that doesn’t exactly track. After all, why would foreign powers trust without evidence the words of opposition groups?
The truth is that the PMOI/MEK provided evidence about the Arak heavy water facility and the Natanz uranium enrichment site, which was then investigated by the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Then, came the “megaton of sanctions.”
The regime seeks nuclear weapons to continue its rule and has concealed this pursuit for twenty years. The PMOI/MEK has now made more than 100 revelations about secret sites, key people, projects, and findings relating to Iran’s nuclear program.
The world, desperate to appease the regime, have largely tried to ignore this but were forced to act when the very real threat became apparent.
“The Iranian Resistance is proud of having contributed to this outcome. It remains committed to the historic task of preventing an aggressive, virulently sectarian, and repression theocracy from developing weapons of mass destruction and using them to threaten people, the surrounding region, and the world,” wrote the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)
Even the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was supposed to stop Iran’s nuclear program, actually ended up giving the mullahs all the money they needed to continue their malign activities, whilst also providing enough loopholes that the nuclear program continued virtually as before.
Of course, the PMOI/MEK has not just been helping get sanctions installed against the regime. They have also been instrumental in encouraging the people to rise up against the mullahs; proving that they are supported by the people and are a significant threat to the regime.
“Despite the regime’s demonizing campaign, the mullahs’ action confirms that the PMOI/MEK and the NCRI are the only viable alternative to Tehran’s genocidal regime. The Iranian Resistance has been proud of its efforts aimed at overthrowing the regime and has pledged to continue this struggle until it topples this medieval regime,” the PMOI/MEK wrote.
