US Moving to Delist Mojahedin?

Yes, according to Wall Street Journal sources

The Wall Street Journal reported last night that the Obama administration is moving to remove the MEK from the State Department's designated list of terrorist organizations. While State Department officials reportedly say that Hillary Clinton has yet to make any final decision, it seems like vacating Camp Ashraf will be one of the pre-conditions to seal the deal. Reza Marashi, research director of the National Iranian American Council discusses.

Yes, killing IRI officials

by Anahid Hojjati on

was act of terror but as much as we read about acts of terror by MEK, we don't read about acts of terror by IRI. I also suspect some IRI supporters and appeasers are among MEK opponents, so I just want to get the facts right. Also world does not run based on yours or any of our expectations. deal with it!

Soosan Khanoom

By the way they did not blow up IRI only

by Soosan Khanoom on

In the process they also got blown up ... and in many case they just randomly blew up people ...  Deal with it ! 

even killing IRI officials that way is an act of terror...

Anahid ... I used the term "brainwashed"

by Soosan Khanoom on

Everyone knows those kids blew up themselves....  The key is being recruited and brainwashed and blown up ...    what is it exactly that you don't get? 

I was expecting others to jump in not you .....  


Anahid Hojjati

stop the misinformation, Soosan Khanoom

by Anahid Hojjati on

I am totally against MEK but what a load of BS when Soosan Khanoom writes:"Both in terms of recruiting , brainwashing and hypnotizing the youth and blowing up them to pieces in public along with many innocent passerby." Here she implies MEK blew up youth that they recruited. That is not the case, they blew up IRI officials. although I am against what they did, but let's get the facts right.

Mousa what an actor you are !!

by Soosan Khanoom on

If you were living in Iran during 1360s you would have had the opportunity to see the MEK in action.   Both in terms of recruiting , brainwashing and hypnotizing the youth and blowing up them to pieces in public along with many innocent passerby.  Now, how worse can it get for IRI in terms of dealing with MEK?  I do not think so IRI even slightly cares .   

Asking me, I do care because foreign powers and MEK leaders are again in bed together to have Iranians kill Iranians.  I rather see Israeli soldiers blow up themselves on the streets of Iran than innocent brainwashed MEK kids.  

By the way delisting or not does not matter ...U.S terrorist's list is a joke.   


When logic is replaced with emotions or partisanship….

by Bavafa on

Would love to understand Mr. Bahmani’s logic  as how it would make it difficult to critique or reject an organization if it is on a terrorist list?



And if he really believes in the above statement then why does he want IRI on the terrorist list?  Wouldn’t that then make it is difficult to critique IRI then ?!?!?

   Here is how I see it, MEK has been and still is an organization that has been used and abused by powers for their own filthy deeds.  They have absolutely no future in Iran as they are the most hated group, far more than IRI itself or Israel.  US will create even more distrust and alienate Iranians even more by legitimizing this group.  So, if their hope ever is to win the hearts and trust of Iranians, this act will certainly be a counter to that goal.


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



dont know much about MEK. but

by mousa67 on

it seems that they have been giving the leadership of the islamic republic of shia terrorists many sleepless nights and raising the blood pressure of mullahs cyber bassij mamoors to the point of near cardiac arrest.

so this looks like another good move in support of iran's democracy movement by mr. obama.

god bless the united states of america which has been  leading the global war against islamist terrorism just as it once did against nazi tyrany.

long live Iran

How much delisting cost to MEK!

by long live Iran on

How much did it cost to MEK:

1- assassinating countrymen

2-Lives of lots of slaves in Ashraf camp

3- Betrying their country

4- sleeping with Sadam

5- Obaying CIA and Mousad


Long Live IRA for EVER 

long live Iran

wearing Natzi custom costs alot...

by long live Iran on

Do not think about Nazi parti. Not even outside Germany.

Look what has happened to Prince Harry after trying this idea!! 


But It is a good idea to compare MEK with Natzi.

Long Live IRAN for EVER.

i wonder if niac will send

by hamsade ghadimi on

i wonder if niac will send a representative to the official signing of de-listing (if and when it happens).  they were against sanctions and sent a representative to the white house for signing of the sanctions. and gloated about in spam letters to everyone that was on their "membership" database!

bahmani, your wish has come true.  in fact, your wish had come true a long time ago. iri has been on the u.s. state department's state sponsors of terror since 1984.  there are currently 4 countries on the list.

moosir, can you tell me the name of the pro-democracy organizations in iran which you approve? i had no idea that you want to replace velayat faghih with a democracy. 

long live Iran

Mojahedin are everywhere.....

by long live Iran on

Mojahedin are everywhere online because I guess in Ashraf camp they have no other occupation except planning assassination and going on line....

Long Live IRAN for EVER 

long live Iran

MEK licked Israeli `s solider `s boot and assassi to be delisted

by long live Iran on

MEK licked Israeli , Iragi and American`s soliders` boots  and assasinated their own country fellos to get delisted! Shame on this terrorist group.

Shame on Rajavi`s slaves

So Hezbollah is the next to be delisted...Hehehe

Long Live IRAN for EVER. 


agree to Bahmani

by JustAnIranian on

I am with Bahmani on this one. I am definately not a supporter if MEK but under conditions I think they should be delisted.

At least then they will not be an underground organisation. Even the Nazi party is allowed in Germany, why not MEK?

I think the biggest loser in this game is the IR and it makes me very happy to see that. 



bahmani, you think the nightmare is over but you're wrong


the MEK even without delisting was a powerful organization not because they are supported by iranians inside or outside, but because they use guerrilla tactics and powerful campaigning (with the aid of millions of dollars pooring in from god know where) in getting their points across and silencing other voices. 

Once delisted I can bet you  that they will be the single "iranian opposition" voice in washington and EU. every true pro-democracy voice will be silenced and sidelined as a result. 

you can kiss democracy in iran good bye. MEK will find a way to bring us to a militray conflict with iran. 



Mujahedin (MEK) is everywhere! And they are amazing!



The MEK's nightmare is over! Now we can reject them!

by bahmani on

I have totally supported de-listing the MEK. As long as they were on the list, it seemed no one could dare critique or counter the Islamic-Socialism model that they represent.

As soon as they are de-listed, no longer terrorists, and formally reject and put away violence, we can fully (and safely) examine and likely reject their political ideology.

The reason I say this is because, if in the 21st century your leader is a woman, who wears a roosari, and if the basis of the MEK's governance ideas starts with the prefix "Islamic-...", and if the organizational set up involves the concept of "Cult...", the chances that this would be a viable, logical, and above all attractive form of governance to get to AFTER what we have now Islamic Marxism is pretty stupid.

The MEK as they stand now, are not Stupid, but they have made many stupid mistakes, and paid dearly for them.

The deal I as an Iranian am willing to make is, I'll agree to delist them, and I will even forgive them for their stupid mistakes. But only as long as they don't try to sell me ridiculous ideas of Islam-based governance.

Because after the MEK is de-listed, I want the IRI listed.
