Besides political isolation in the Western countries, ever-increasing revelations by former members and defectors have put the group in an irresolvable condition. These are all the consequences of reaching "a higher level" the MKO boasts about. This is only the beginning…
MKO remnants have claimed recently to have reached a higher level after their convention in Paris and that the world now takes them more seriously; but the fact is that nothing has happened in favor of the group.
The fears and hopes of desperate MKO are the same ones that have always existed.
In the international scene, MKO's hopes include a move by NeoCons and warmongers against Iran (so that MKO could move its restricted forces in Ashraf), more radical moves in Iran's nuclear program and intensifying sanctions against Iran. It's clear that MKO can't play a role in Iran's social and political scene. It can't even help itself with its desperate situation and its fears are remaining in terror lists and unknown future in Iraq.
No positive chance could be seen in this situation for the group. Americans (even NeoCons) have resorted to diplomacy and seek the formation of a new front in the Middle East against Iran, which has had no results so far.
Iran's nuclear program is seemingly moving towards more cooperation between Iran and the IAEA as well as more talks with Europeans and delaying another resolution against Iran.
In Iraq, against MKO's hopes in weak efforts of Accord Front against the Iraqi government, Saudi Arabia is moving towards supporting the country's political process, which is apparently a result of pressures by the U.S.
Iraqi government and legitimate groups in the country have managed to deprive anarchist groups from succeeding, although terrorists' crimes continue to take toll.
Meanwhile, the movments of alQaeda-Baath-MKO couldn't help the situation of MKO; instead, the party faced a tough order by the Iraqi government to tighten the control over Camp Ashraf and withdrew.
Rajavi's remnants have been forced to resort to covert deals and as usual, they have managed to control their organizational crises by covert diplomacy (serving as mercenary).
Incoming reports indicate that requests by CIA and intelligence services of some Arab countries from the group to increase its activities have risen; the requests focus on decreasing MKO's political and propagandistic campaign and increasing its services for these agencies.
This has led to a new crisis the MKO remnants try to resolve, for the major method for boosting the morale of desperate members in Camp Ashraf is to feed them with unreal propagandistic news. This situation would worsen the issue of defections inside the group.
