Where is Masoud Rajavi?


Jahanshah Javid

More bad news from Iran: Khamenei is not dead. There were rumors that he was in a coma and on the verge of death. But today he had a meeting with some foreign president. He's not looking good though. I bet you he has aged rapidly since the election. His conscience is weighing heavily on him. He can continue to put on a brave face and say everything is fine. But the wonderful thing about the mind of every human being is that you cannot lie to yourself.

Every step we take that leads to hurting others will shoot a bullet right through our own brain. The bullets are only chemical reactions and we usually survive them. But multiply them by 75 million (Iran's population suffering under your rule), times the number of people who have been killed/executed by your direct orders or by your agents, times the number of prisoners who are in prison for criticizing you and your regime, times the amount that the Revolutionary Guards alone has pocketed from huge business deals, times the number of times you have lied ... and they quickly add up.

Anyway, Khamenei's death rumor reminded me of another political leader who's gone missing for a long time.

I was having lunch with a friend the other day and talking about current events. Camp Ashraf came up and the tragic situation facing the Mojahedin members trapped inside. He said he thinks Masoud Rajavi is dead. No one has seen or heard of him for a very long time.

He made me think. My goodness, Masoud really has been silent for years. Am I wrong? Hasn't anyone wondered what happened to him? I mean we just a had few months of extraordinary events that have shaken the foundation of the Islamic Republic and we haven't heard a peep -- or tweet -- from Masoud.

It IS really odd that there have been no statements from him about the elections and its aftermath. We have seen his wife Maryam making public statements and speaking to the press. But where's Masoud. I'm surprised we have all forgotten about him.

To be honest I don't read the news much and I don't follow other blogs. So I may be completely off on this subject. Maybe Masoud has been seen and heard of in recent months. But if not, then where is he?

I'm not trying to make him a target for the Islamic Republic by exposing his whereabouts. But I'm just wondering what has happened to the leader of a major opposition group. He can't just disappear. I mean he can, but people are going to wonder after a while. It's like Reza Pahlavi going into hiding for a year or two without anyone noticing. Mani nadaareh.

So is Masoud dead? When/where did that happen? If he's alive and well, how could he NOT make public speeches during these critical months. Was he badly wounded during the US invasion of Iraq? Daastaan chiyeh?

I'm just asking, that's all.

You need him for something?

by anonymous111.2 on

I can deliver the message.  He's here with me.  He just got done washing my car.


I read somewhere he is a man without a country like Bin Laden

by Anonymouse on

I think he was expelled from Europe, France I think, and went back to Iraq and after Bush went hee haw in Iraq he went underground, maybe Syria for a while and then back to Iraq but no one knows where he is now except CIA of course!

He is just eating, sleeping and not showering, using the allowance Maryam gives him!

Everything is sacred.

All the better he is gone!

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

My god, we lose a fool like him from the spotlight and we complain? I wish the royalist monarchist crownist clown reza pahlavi would follow in masoud's footsteps. Say what you will about Masoud, he can give a speech. He can articulate an idea. He is moving. Even with Masoud's absence, Pahlavi is left with nothing. Poor le petit prince. 

Let's not wonder. Let's celebrate that another chubby, spoiled, thiefing Iranian man who wishes to lead and deceive has disappeared. Let's celebrate those who matter. Shirin Ebadi!

Thanks Shifteh Ansari. So Masoud has issued statements. But I still don't understand why has not been seen in public.

If Khamenei has indeed aged

by TheMrs on

If Khamenei has indeed aged rapidly post election, it has nothing to do with his conscience. I doubt he has one.

On the other hand, I don't even notice anything. He is so ugly and hairy and always wears the same thing. You have to observe him through time to be able to judge that he's not looking so sharp anymore. And I personally can't manage that, looking at him more than a glance gives me the oghs.

Shifteh Ansari said it best, "Masoud Rajavi" is irrelevant

by Anahid Hojjati on

I have known about "Masoud Rajavi" for more than 30 yeras now.  I was at front of Ghasr prison the night he got freed from Shah's prison.  This man has been a joke for long time.  His marriage to Bani  sadr's daughter and then to this current wife, were major farces.  He is an ideal opposition leader that by being repulsive, makes IRI leaders feel better about themselves. I believe "Shifteh Ansari" said it best when in her comment she wrote:"...I think the reason we haven't "heard" from Massoud Rajavi is that he is a completely irrelevant political figure now.  He can issue all the messages he wants, but nobody will "hear" him. "

ببین جیم جیم چی میگم، بخدا اگه دم دستم بودی یه جوری میمالوندمت، میگن دور از جون، کرم از درخته. ما تازه داریم یاد میگیریم با پهلوی چی های توی وبسایتت چه جوری لاس خشکه بزنیم كه بهشون بر نخوره و ما رو هم توی جمع خودشون بدون گوشه چشم نازک کردن و ادا اطوار های بالاشهری پذیرا بشن كه حالا داری پای مجاهدینو دوباره اینجا باز میکنی . مث اینکه خودتم  داره حوصله ات از لوسبازی این پهلوی گرا ها سر میره. شایدم تو هم مث من یه چیزائی از ادا و اشاره هائی كه بین رضا پهلوی و سرکرده مجاهدین رد و بدل میشه، دستگیرت شده  باشه، ولی بذار به عنوان یه خواهر بزرگتر كه كه چند تا سینه بند بیشتر از بقیه پاره کرده بهت بگم، نه کالت خائن رجوی با رسم و رسومات خودسوزی هوادارانش  به درد ایران میخوره نه سلطنتی كه شاهش،  نخست وزیر چاکر جان نثار شو میکنه تو زندون و خودش با سگش در میره.دفعه  دیگه که حوصله ات سر رفت، بجای بلاگ اینجوری نوشتن، بیا اینجا پیش خودم یه دس پاسور میزنیم .


He and Bin Laden could be living in the same cave...

by Ostaad on

sharing the usual "cavehold" chores. Bin does the dishes and Masoud takes out the garbage and cuts, sorry eats the grass.

Thank you for the article! My favorite is the 2nd paragraph, you used the Math operation word 5 times:


       Multiply - one time

       Times - in 4 separate sentences


The guy won't last very long 'cause the odds is really against him!

Great job!

Maybe he has a mistress and gave up politics ;0)

by Darius Kadivar on

But Seriously I was asking myself the same question lately. I think Maryam has a castrating influence on him. He seems to have been overshadowed totally by her presence.

The MKO's are mostly in Auvers Sur Oise in the northern outskirts of Paris. If I come across one militant distributing pamphlets in Paris I will try and find out.

Its all Very mysterious indeed !

I doubt he is dead.  I

by Shifteh Ansari on

I doubt he is dead.  I don't know where he is, but he has been issuing messages about recent events.  

Last April 24, there were YouTube postings of Masoud Rajavi's message for European Parliament's resolution on Camp Ashraf:

Part 1:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwDsQUJk8XY

Part 2:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0htg3DLn5SA

After the June protests, he issued this message (this one is in his own voice, I think):


In August, on the occasion of 28 Mordad anniversary, he sent a message, asking people to "release Iran during Ramadan."

Part 1:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOpsel_LFbM

Part 2:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt5A8CrIpso

He had another message in August regarding Camp Ashraf events:



I think the reason we haven't "heard" from Massoud Rajavi is that he is a completely irrelevant political figure now.  He can issue all the messages he wants, but nobody will "hear" him.  Forget about "saving" and "liberating" the Iranian nation!  If he and his wife were worthy leaders, they wouldn't have left their couple of thousand followers inside a camp to fend for themselves, frozen in time.
