The latest IPC book, Terror Tagging of an Iranian Dissident Organization, will be available via Amazon.com in August 2011. Below is a summary of the book.
The law and facts have been moving in the direction of removal of an Iranian dissident group—the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MeK), aka People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) from the U.S. Department of State Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) list. Despite the law and facts, it is a puzzle for the MeK to be designated as a terrorist group.

The facts and the law are turning against critics of an Iranian opposition organization that plays a major role in organizing nonviolent resistance against the Iranian regime—the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK). Critics fall back on nonfactual, nonlegal arguments, such as accusations the MEK is a cult and the organization lacks support among the Iranian people, to justify continuation of the terrorist designation of the MEK by the Department of State. But the cult and support claims are demonstrably false, as shown in the full article; and even if true, they are legally irrelevant to the terrorist designation of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq. Consider the facts and the law as prelude to a discussion and refutation of nonlegal accusations about the MEK.
A new white paper addresses credibility of sources and allegations regarding the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/PMOI) on the Foreign Terrorist Organizations list of the State Department (See summary below and full white paper under IPC Publications)
