Former senior US officials reject Robert Malley’s office’s statement on Iranian Resistance

Last week, Robert Malley, the US Special Envoy for Iran, issued a statement criticizing the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), whilst also repeating tired allegations frequently used by the Iranian regime and its apologists.
Last week, Robert Malley, the US Special Envoy for Iran, issued a statement criticizing the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK), whilst also repeating tired allegations frequently used by the Iranian regime and its apologists.

 

“While the United States revoked the designation of the MEK as a foreign terrorist organization in September 2012, the United States does not see the MEK as a viable democratic opposition movement that is representative of the Iranian people. The State Department continues to have serious concerns about the MEK as an organization, including allegations of abuse against its own member,” Robert Malley stated.

“Desperate to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), US Envoy Robert Malley has sought to appease the Iranian government by publicly discrediting one of regime’s primary opposition group,” the statement of renowned American politicians reads in part.

On the surface, Mr. Malley's statement was a response to the Iranian regime falsely accusing the US Government of training MEK members, as well as the allegation that MEK members were mistreated by their own leadership. This is yet another obvious instance of Iranian regime propaganda.

“U.S. diplomatic personnel visited the two MEK camps in Iraq before they relocated to Albania and have since visited the compound in which they now reside. Likewise, most, if not all, of the signatories to this statement have visited the Albanian camp and interacted directly with MEK members. In Albania, as before in Iraq, there is no credible evidence of any human rights problems within the MEK,” American politicians remarked.

While underlining that “Mr. Malley’s statement parrots the same falsehoods made by the religious dictatorship that rules Iran,” the American luminaries considered a “a senior American official repeating such false claims while MEK and fellow protestors are being brutally suppressed is outrageous, and in fact, facilitates the regime’s killing machine on the streets and campuses across Iran.”

It is worth noting that the American politicians’ statement was welcomed by several news outlets, including Fox News and Just the News.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a political branch of the MEK, led by President-elect Maryam Rajavi, is based on the principles of democracy and religious freedom. Mrs. Rajavi has been publicly advocating for a free, democratic Iran in the face of regime assassinations, kidnappings, terrorist bombings, and disinformation.

 

 

“Mrs. Rajavi and the NCRI have been relentlessly calling for the creation of secular democratic institutions with universal suffrage in Iran, the full empowerment of women and minorities, and a non-nuclear nation reconciled with a peaceful international community.” the statement read in part. “These are the same goals now echoing through the protests and gunfire across Iran.”

“We understand that Mr. Malley’s primary mission in Iran is to resurrect the JCPOA. What Mr. Malley needs to understand is that his action, taken while tens of thousands of Iranian women and men are fighting and dying for freedom from tyranny, is a flagrant betrayal of both the Iranian people and a foundational principle that our country has long honoured.”

Iran’s popular resistance will put an end to the international community’s appeasement

In recent months, the death of Mahsa Amini, a young woman who was killed after being arrested by the regime's so-called 'morality' police for not wearing the regime's fabricated compulsory hijab and dress codes, sparked a new round of nationwide protests.

In recent months, the death of Mahsa Amini, a young woman who was killed after being arrested by the regime's so-called 'morality' police for not wearing the regime's fabricated compulsory hijab and dress codes, sparked a new round of nationwide protests.

 

Most politicians, particularly those who wrote and advertised in support of the regime, believed that, as in the past, the regime would be able to put down the protests, if not immediately, then within a short period of time. Despite the regime’s tricks, conspiracies, repression, and killings, the people were able to endure them. In that sense, we are now witnessing a new revolution rather than scattered protests.

To gain a better understanding of the outcome of people’s resistance, we should look at two recent historical events that depict the outcomes of resistance.

Russia launched an attack on Ukrainian territory in February 2022. Despite the obvious condemnations, many Western politicians initially believed that this occupation could be overlooked within the context of global power dynamics.

 

 

As a result, the US government offered assistance to Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky, and his family in leaving the country and seeking refuge in another country. Zelensky, who refused to surrender, rejected this offer and instead requested that the World powers provide him and his country with weapons so that they could confront the occupiers.

Because of the president of Ukraine’s stance, the entire country decided to support him in his fight. From that point forward, the situation shifted in favour of the Ukrainian people. After 8 months, Russia has been pushed further back and is now globally isolated, while Ukraine is on the verge of victory.

Another case in point is the situation of the People’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI/MEK) following the US army’s occupation of Iraq in 2003. The MEK, which has spent years on the border between Iran and Iraq, has witnessed a highly complicated military and political situation.

From one side, coalition forces bombarded and disarmed them as part of a soft dismantlement policy, and from the other, they became involved with an Iraqi government that was an accomplice of the Iranian regime.

 

 

Meanwhile, the MEK had only a few options: surrender, contemplate dissolution, or maintain resistance at all costs. With more than 70 days of resistance against the tyrannical regime, the Iranian people have chosen the same path. The path of least resistance at any cost. They have surprised and awed people all over the world.

Because of public opinion pressure and the people’s ongoing resistance, world powers that were unwilling to leave the negotiating table and abandon concessions to the regime have been forced to reconsider their past.

The situation in Iran has now reached a point where Europe and other partners are declaring that nuclear negotiations with the regime are no longer priorities. Furthermore, the world powers are imposing more sanctions on the mullahs’ regime with each passing day.

 

 

All of these results are solely the result of the Iranian people’s organized resistance over the course of more than four decades, which has culminated in the protests and uprisings that have occurred across the country, resulting in more than 600 martyrs, 30,000 arrests, and tens of thousands of civilian injuries. Despite the disasters, Iran’s brave men, women, and youths are entering the second month of their uprising toward a democratic republic.
