Ron Jacobs:

One disturbing aspect of Mossaddessin’s text is his referral to the 
support that the NCRI and PMOI [MEK] have received from various members 
of the US government. Especially disturbing is his quoting of Daniel 
Pipes, the neoconservative apologist for the worst of Israel’s 
oppressive tactics in Palestine. One would think that he would see this 
support for what it truly is: an attempt to manipulate these 
organizations into doing Washington’s dirty work in replacing the 
theocratic regime in Iran. Conversations I have had with grassroots 
supporters of the PMOI, however, make it clear that the majority of its 
members understand that their revolutionary vision of Islam is no more 
palatable to US goals for the region than that of the fundamentalists.
