Protests will not subside as long as PMOI exists: former Guards commander

NCRI – A former commander of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards said this week that as long as the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) exists, regime officials should not mislead themselves into thinking that popular protests have subsided, according to state-run Raja News.


Gassemi referred to the popular uprisings against the clerical regime as “sedition” and ?said, “We must not think the sedition is over and fool ourselves into thinking that it has passed. We are now in a new phase. … We have not really comprehended what happened ?that some of our elite were playing puzzles in the same field as the PMOI was. This is a ?question that you must ask these gentlemen wherever you find them.”

The former official of the regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) also underscored the intensification of infighting in the regime and warned, “If we say that [the mullahs’ President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad should go and look for a new president, we have to realize that we will not find anyone better. We must not commit such a historical folly and forget about the other side. We have to be rational.”
