Governments, which have understood MKO’s methods, will no longer pay them
Maryam Rajavi has started new MKO’s strategy in Europe by holding meetings with some figures, talking to the press and holding conferences whose participants are mainly foreigners.
By this new strategy, which is expressed clearly by Maryam Rajavi, she wants her foreign audience to support Mojahedin and give any kind of aid and privileges to this group.
Mojahedin, who speak internally of glory and resistance, have expressed critical situation of the group in recent meetings and have asked their addressees to try their best to decrease the pressure on the organization.
Meanwhile Mojahedin say that they’re now enjoying protected status granted by the US, which according to group’s spokespersons “has prevented the group from being dissolved” and is considered a glorious victory for them, and members of the group are singing and dancing!
They say they have neutralized all conspiracies by legal mobilization and they are acting in other countries too, so they should not have particular concern.
But we see that their claims are not true and that Mojahedin have put “requesting for help” in their agenda.
What has multiplied MKO’s concerns is losing the special privileges they used to receive from governments.
Mojahedin have never been in an space equal to that of other political forces and groups, but they have always received large financial-logistical support for selling information to spying services and due to creating controversy about their military power among the political lines.
Now , with the fall of Saddam, they have lost the way to get special financial, military privileges. On political ground, Mojahedin can do nothing except playing the role of spies; so, they tried for a while to get cancelled privileges but they nearly failed. Governments, which have understood MKO’s methods, will no longer pay them.
All the controversies Mojahedin have created is because, in the new situation without Saddam, they should have something to present in political scene and by relying on their capabilities (which are indeed smaller than their formal shows) try to survive. The more the situation goes to be normalized, the more MKO’s inefficiencies on one hand and the failure of their strategy on the other become apparent.
