Iran was conquered in 1978 by two forces. BBC in the air waves, and MEK on the ground. The Ayatollahs were the icing on the cake. In fact Ayatollah Khomeini was a diversion. A sweetener in fact.Sounds weird now, but that’s how it was right at the beginning.
The Baby and the Bath Water Iran’s biggest enemy was, and still is, mainstream media. Social networking is the counter-revolution to mainstream media. I could not write this in 1979. All the brains of Iran, who wrote thousands of letters to BBC and The Times and The Guardian, were ignored. The words of MEK and Khomeini were headlines. These headlines got rid of the Shah. But it turned out, they threw out the baby with the bath water, as Iranian culture was destroyed by Islamic Nihilism. The US was laughing.
Islamic Nihilism Wikipedia does a good job on MEK. For me it is more important to find out why a group of intelligent human beings in Iran decide to follow this book:
NAB is the cornerstone of their belief system. You do not need to be super intelligent, to read sermon 69 in NAB, and draw some basic conclusions. In fact most of the other sermons, are there to nab the living world, and to praise death. MEK does not put Iran first, they are not secular, and are violent. They do not clearly state they are non-violent. They can’t, it would not be in NAB. It’s a joke, but not to the US.
Plagiarsim and Authenticity This concept of Nihilism, was originally devised, well before MEK, Shias, or Sunnis. Zoroastrians called Mani, and Mazdak, thought of it first. In fact Salman Parsi, used Mani to write the Koran – and it gave a spiritual Cause for war. Later Marx, used Mazdak, to write his Manifesto, which gave a political Cause for war. Iranian thoughts, were copied, and plagiarized in both instances. So nothing authentic is there in any of their books, be it “inspired” from God, or from human reasoning. All the ideas, that they are selling, are designed to give up on life. None of these ideas, have any relationship to life loving Knowrooz (Nowrooz) culture of Iran, that gives you a “can do” positive attitude, in the here and now. We all laugh at them, but the US don’t.
Hypocritical Reactionaries MEK’s more plausable Cause, is a reactionary political movement. They are an “anti-Something”. They were developed around anti-Capitalist, anti-US, and so anti-Shah slogans. They were then, yet another group that needed the US and the Shah, to justify their Cause. The irony, is that they will have little else to say to the US, now that they are loved by them. At best, they are anti-Mullah, but that will make them hypocrites, as they are sworn Shiites. So the question to ask is, what is their purpose? The better question to ask is, why is US laughing?
Useful to US Military and Mainstream Media Business The MEK will now badger on about US being awful, as its military campaigns make it the world terrorist. The MEK will not say “we love USA”. They will keep US on their “Terror List”. They have to. It is their legitimacy. This helps the US to have yet another Bogey Man against it, now that they are pulling out of Afghanistan. MEK will be used by mainstream media as “the opposition”. MEK will be ready, to take over the Bogey Man role of the Ayatollahs, once they are removed. They will be like the new leaders in North Africa. They will be, enough anti-US, to keep the US military business, and mainstream media business ticking along, without going too mad. The US wants enemies it can rely on. But we are going to have the last laugh.
