BREAKING THE SET w ABBY MARTIN
This is one of the best segments that I have seen yet on this show - or any other for that matter - regarding EXPLAINING THE HYPOCRISY concerning MEK.
The People's Mujahedin of Iran or the Mujahadeen-e-Khalq (MEK, also PMOI, MKO) is a militant revolutionary Iranian organization that was one of the leading participants of the 1979 Revolution that overthrew the Pahlavi Shah. It is now an opposition movement in exile, that advocates the overthrow of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Canada, Iraq and Iran designate the MEK as a terrorist organization. The European Union and the United States formerly listed the MEK as a terrorist organization, but this designation has since been lifted, first by the Council of the European Union in 26 January 2009 (following what the group called a “seven-year-long legal and political battle”), then by a decision by U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton on 21 September 2012.
