Israel: We Don’t Support Iranian MEK Group’s U.S. Push

The exiled Iranian opposition Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK), claiming to have sworn off violence, has been mounting an aggressive and wellfinanced campaign to get delisted from the U.S. terror rolls. In 2006, the New Yorker reported that the MEK’s greatest public relations coup — revealing the location of a secret Iranian nuclear facility — was based on information from Israeli intelligence. But today, Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon disavowed the MEK’s latest campaign to get delisted. Asked if he supported their push, he replied, “No. We don’t consider it an asset, and we are not interfering in the internal affairs of Iran.”
