    The Google Plus page of “Change Iran Now” used to indicate support of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the political wing of Mojahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), which is designated by the State Dept as a terrorist organization. Why he/she wastes time here I have no idea. For the record, the MEK opposed the Shah and initially supported the revolution.
