Wilfred Bochner has argued that Iranian radical groups (like MKO) have no influence inside iran
Wilfried Bochner, German writer, has discussed the structure of power in Iran in his "Who are Iran's rulers?" This book, recently translated to Arabic in UAE, has 3 major chapters. The centers of power in Iran have been reviewed in the first chapter. In the second, opposition groups and in the third chapter, internal competitions of Iran's parties have been discussed. In the second part of this book, author has reviewed the Iranian opposition groups and has divided them to two: a) Religious critic groups who want reformation through peaceful ways and act in the framework of constitution. Of these groups, we can mention Nehzate Azadi-e Iran (Iran's Freedom Movement) founded by Mehdi Bazargan, Ayatollah Taleghani and some other political activists. This group doesn't accept the theory of Velayat-e Faqih. Iran-e Farda (Iran of Tomorrow) and Hezb-e Mellat-e Iran (the Party of Iranian people), which are nationalist groups, as well as those who have gathered around Abdul Karim Soroush are as such. b) Opposition groups abroad which are armed and often small; these groups want to topple Iranian regime. These groups are radical ones which have no influence inside Iran. The reason of this seems to be internal tensions (which have targeted the roots of these groups) and also years of staying outside the country by these groups. Most important groups of this kind are Mojahedin-e khalq and Jamaat Al-Sunna of Iran.
