Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Iran, Aug 16, 2018 - Continued protests in cities across Iran and their linking with the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) and their resistance units have resulted in increasing concerns for the Iranian regime and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
The “Tehran news agency” posted a piece on the PMOI/MEK’s resistance unit and also referred to the regime’s increasing internal crisis following the U.S. exiting the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The piece also acknowledges the fact that the regime’s reformists/principalists deception has come to end as protesting people are calling the mullahs’ hand.
“Maybe if the reformist governments and those who in recent years are claiming to be moderates never existed, and if we hadn’t placed our economy in the hands of the Iran deal and failed negotiations with the ‘Great Satan,’ these days we may not have been witnessing the entire establishment losing its prestige as people continue to protests,” the piece reads in part.
“The situation becomes even more concerning when a third party enters the scene and robs us of the people’s support,” the post adds.
“This third party… uses its levers, being the ‘resistance units,’ recognize neither principalists nor reformists… over the years the [PMOI/MEK] has gained influence among our youths and now they have become members of their resistance units…
“What we’re witnessing today is fire engulfing the Iranian regime apparatus throughout the country. If the country’s security forces were provided the green light to take action against the people ‘protesting real shortcomings,’ the PMOI/MEK would never be able to gain such influence in broad daylight throughout the country and do as they wish.”
When such remarks are heard from media outlet linked to the Iranian regime, rest assured senior Iranian regime officials are deeply concerned about the PMOI/MEK’s role in the ongoing protests across the country.
This is more proof of how the PMOI/MEK plays a pivotal role in Iran’s status quo as the main opposition movement providing the sole viable alternative to the mullahs’ regime.
