Following White House efforts to build more pressure against Iran, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced an anti-Iran conference co-hosting by Poland and United States during his Tour of the Middle East.

While the summit – to be held in Warsaw over Feb. 13-14 – will focus on stability and security in the Middle East and on countering Iran’s “destabilising influence” in the region,  EU Officials have raised questions about the real agenda of the conference  saying it was organized at very short notice and noting that Iran did not appear to be invited. Additionally, EU foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said that she would not take part in what her officials privately describe as an anti-Iran conference.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif dismissed the planned event as a "desperate anti-Iran circus" and tweeted

Contrary to Twitter Terms and Conditions on user account activities which bans and suspends any fake and/or suspicious activities, Geoff Golberg mentioned Head of Site Integrity, Yoel Roth, Trust and Safety Vice President, Del Harvey and Legal, Policy and Trust and Safety Lead at Twitter, Vijaya Gadde saying 378 accounts appeared more than 500 times assuming that could not be “organic”. The Interesting point about those accounts is that most of them were created in the recent year. Furthermore, many of those accounts averaged over 100 tweets per day signaling automated activity level.

Following is a list of accounts supporting anti-Iran Poland Summit, many of which active trolls of mujahedin-e khalq hallucinating a regime change in Iran.

The terrorist organization has consistently been supported by US Government and its allies in order to not only influence Iranian public opinion through Twitter and other social media platforms but also to establish campaigns for interfering in Islamic Republic domestic affairs. US National Security Advisor, John Bolton’s attendance in a MEK meeting promising regime change in Iran by the end of 2018 could a notable example in this regard.

US Proxy war against Iran has never been a new issue but the question which still remains is why American Officials have chosen this time and method to go against Islamic Republic. Do they have any idea in case their attempts fail and become a historical catastrophe in their policy?
