Rajavi's "openings" and his so-called "Solidarity Front" never were deep-rooted and actual. If they were, at first, hanging on various European and U.S parliamenters- especially after removing from the U.S terrorist list- was not intensified. Secondly, solidarity requires formal and open review of past policy and making changes in the MeK's organization and its business, as a sign of readiness to accept the new situation. Thirdly, in order to be "open", the MeK should give up cult rituals, at least in the appearance. In other words, openness of the MeK means its non existence.

Resignations of Karim Ghasim and Mohammad Reza Rohani, two of the oldest non- Mujaheed members of the so- called National Council, before anything, indicates abundant frustration of the MeK and their friends because of the condition in which the group is. Although, this fact is transposed through the MeK's double speaking: "If there was victory, you never pose such criticisms to the leadership."

On the other hand, this departure also is sign of an incurable dissent. When Mr. Ghasim and Mr. Rohani, who were among the nearest persons to the MeK leadership, so that sometimes they appeared in vesture of theorists of "resistance", and possess relative freedom in expression of criticism and way of life, pull out "resistance", let alone those restricted members, who are under organizational pressure, ideological repression and censorship, to whom criticism to the leadership is a red line that should not be crossed; those miserable who are sentenced to endure unsafe and illogical conditions in Iraq to keep the organization and maintain position of Rajavi.

 

But, the point is that these resignations were not all of a sudden. The departure, as they said, has been processed over ten years: "Always, especially over the last decade and more in the past four years, we have had various growing difficulties in Adjustment of internal relations, ways of dealing with errors, lack of proper accountability, reaction to criticism and critics inside and outside the Council, the decision-making practices, and etc. Over many years, due to unsolvable contradictions and raising new problems, our patience is depleted, too".

 

Of course, despite Rajavi's democratic gestures, such as repetition of the empty claim of raising hand for solidarity and no willingness to squeeze it, he has done all his efforts to avoid these departures. Naming Iranians and non-adherent political groups compromises and merchants, and rejecting coalition with all persons and entities who want equal vote with the MeK in a coalition, are among Rajavi's actions to harness members who are already in the Council.
