In an article published on "Al-Ghantareh" website, Faraj Sarkoohi- Frankfurt-based Iranian journalist- has discussed the effects of the MKO in Iran's political future: During the first years of the Islamic revolution (in Iran), the MKO enjoyed popular support but a despotic man took this group under his control and after that hundreds of senior Iranian officials were assassinated. Then, terrorist operations of the group were extended to include ordinary people. He killed everyone who supported the regime. The group lost its popularity due to these acts. After such operations and prosecution of members by the regime, commanders of the group fled the country. After a while, MKO concentrated its forces in Iraq and cooperated with Saddam Hussein's army which was at war with Iran. This was considered as the "political suicide" by this organization, since people saw the group siding with their enemy and this was the end of MKO, especially after people became familiar with the ideology and structure of this organization. The ideology of MKO mixes Stalinism and strategy of "Khmer Rouge" in Cambodia with some concepts from Koran. MKO's goal is to establish a democratic Islamic republic in which Massoud Rajavi (lifetime leader of the MKO) will be the absolute authority. In addition, in Rajavi's regime, the leaders issues orders to the president. In current Islamic republic (in Iran), people elect the president, but Massoud Rajavi wants to ease the people by introducing his wife as president-elect. He has openly announced that he's in touch with God and holy Imams and that's why he rejects any kind of criticism as rebelling against his, and God's, orders! After long-time efforts, the UN and Red Cross could finally visit MKO's prisons in Iraq and see the punishment of dissident members, who were accused of criticizing Massoud Rajavi. These people had tried to leave the group.
