This could explain Javad Zarif's anxiety:
"It should be noted that on the Internet, especially Telegram, the enemy and especially the [#MEK], have gained complete control… The terminology of regime change is gaining complete control in social media networks." -Tehran Press #Iran
The mullahs have always been fearful of #MEK's connecting to citizens. Here is what @NYTimes wrote in 1996: "Gov officials said the number of banned sites was not available, but they include those with information distributed by opposition groups like the [MEK]..." #CyberSecurity
The @NYTimes continued: ''The brains of the young are very impressionable, so the Mujahedeen Khalq [#MEK] might be able to brainwash people to join them, or they might be able to influence an election,'' said a senior Gov official familiar w/ the Internet project. #CyberSecurity
To better understand why Tehran is now gunning for the #MEK in Albania & elsewhere using PR, terror, diplomatic & cyber attacks, also read this analysis by the regime on increasingly "game-changing" role of MEK in directing & evolving the #IranProtests.

Here is also a great comment by the @isjcommittee's president, @VidalQuadras on Javad Zarif's ask from @Twitter to silence the regime's opponents.
AP (@AP): "An Iranian government-aligned group of hackers launched a major campaign targeting Mideast energy firms and others"
Look @jack! This is the gov whose Foreign Min is asking you 2 silence the dissidents aiming 2 free their homeland.
