@Antiwarcom Claiming that the #MEK has no support in #Iran is false. They have support & the number of supporters in Iran increases steadily. But those people cannot express their political affiliation freely, since they live under a totalitarian regime. The author didn't consider this fact.
@Antiwarcom It is true that the #MEK started an armed resistance against the Khomeini regime, but that was after Khomeini started to suppress peaceful protests againsts his regime violently with armed munitions. Armed resistance against a tyrant is legitimate for every nation on this earth.
@Antiwarcom The author omits that the #MEK & Mr. Rajavi campaigned for an end of the #Iran-Iraq war when he came to Paris in 1982. He signed a peace treaty with the foreign minister of #Iraq, Tariq Aziz, but Khomeini continued the war for 6 more years.


@Antiwarcom In 1986 the #MEK decided to go to #Iraq, since the french authorities didn't assure for their security anymore & other European countries denied access. The last 1,5 years of the #Iran-Iraq war they fought in Iraq & forced Khomeini to finally end this pointless conflict.
@Antiwarcom Therefore, the claim "The #MEK took Hussein’s side in the brutal eight-year war between #Iran & #Iraq (...)" is clearly false. They fought for the national interest of Iran, which was peace, whereas Khomeini wanted to suppress all opposition &conquer Iraq&march towards Jerusalem.
@Antiwarcom Moreover, the #MEK were delisted from the FTO, since the independent European & American judiciary recognized that the designation of the MEK was a goodwill gesture for the regime in #Tehran, in order to strengthen economic&diplomatic relations.The MEK never was a terrorist group
@Antiwarcom The author of this article did copy the Iranian regime's, its state media's & the MOIS's narrative when it comes to the Iranian resistance. They want to deny that ther is an alternative in to prevent a #RegimeChange. Their logic is: No Alternative -> the current regime must stay.
@Antiwarcom However there is a democratic alternative, which is the #NCRI & Miss @Maryam_Rajavi. The current demos & conferences are enough proof.Miss Rajavi's 10 Point Plan is the guarantee for a #FreeIran after a #RegimeChange. Unfortunately the author did not take this into consideration.
@Antiwarcom @Maryam_Rajavi In conclusion, this article is onsided & unprofessional, full of untruths & half-truths. It could have been written & published by the Iranian regime's state media. It follows the tradition of 40 years of spreading disinformation about the Iranian resistance.
