To accept the Mujahedin al-Khalq as a moderate organization is analytically shallow given the group's record of behavior, its dishonesty in its written work, its past targeting of Americans, and the fact that its rhetoric about democracy does not match its practice.


Michael Rubin, Commentary 

The Clarion Project dedicates itself "to exposing the dangers of Islamic extremism while providing a platform for the voices of moderation and promoting grassroots activism." Progressive organizations like the Center for American Progress as well as those close to the Muslim Brotherhood like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Society of North America have condemned the group, more often than not by labeling it to try to stigmatize it and its supporters so as to avoid a much-needed debate on issues surrounding radical Islamism.

It is not surprising, therefore, that the Clarion Project, as it is dedicated to countering radical Islam, lists a number of progressive Muslim organizations. What is surprising is that they list among them the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the front organization of the Mujahedin al-Khalq, an Iranian opposition group. The Mujahedin al-Khalq may be a lot of things, but it is neither progressive nor is it non-violent. Progressive movements tend not to dictate to women who to marry and who to divorce. The Mujahedin al-Khalq attached itself to Saddam Hussein and allowed itself to be used almost as a mercenary organization against both Kurds and Iraqi Shi'ites.

To accept the Mujahedin al-Khalq as a moderate organization is analytically shallow given the group's record of behavior, its dishonesty in its written work, its past targeting of Americans, and the fact that its rhetoric about democracy does not match its practice.
