Message Farid Khavari

On June 13, 2015, at an Iran Freedom rally in France, a few U.S. politicians, Republicans and Democrats, along with their European and Latin American colleagues, supported the MEK, after they received hefty payments and a round trip to Paris. This disgusted many Iranians. Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, suggested Mariam Rajavi as the next leader of Iran to replace the Shia-Mullahs.

Iranians would never vote for this government, and it could only be installed by U.S. military action. Once in control of the Iranian military, Revolutionary Guards and Quds army, the MEK would make the Shia-Mullahs look like amateurs. This regime would be a worse threat to the region including Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Israel. It would also spark a civil war, making Iran the next Syria.

The MEK owes its perceived legitimacy to the ignorance, innocent or not, of politicians and respected leaders in the free world. Let us hope their purchase of influence over U.S. policy does not lead to perpetual war.
