Iran's Lobby Drooling in Washington Bazaar
By Jamie Glazov
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, November 17, 2008

Frontpage Interview's guest today is Hassan Daioleslam, an Iranian human rights activist and political scholar. Daioleslam was born in Tehran in 1957. After finishing his primary and high school in Tehran, he entered the Polytechnic University of Tehran in 1974. In the years after the 1979 Iranian Islamist Revolution in Iran, he became a student movement leader standing up against Khomeini's repression and mass executions. He eventually left the country and settled in France. During the 1980s and early 1990s, Daioleslam was active with Iranian secular movements, human rights activities and the defense of Iranian political prisoners.

Regime’s Lobby Becomes Active in Congress Next Tuesday, on November 18, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) will host a congressional briefing. Senator Thomas Carper (D-DE) and Representative John Tierney (D-MA) are amongst the speakers. They will be talking about the new president’s policy towards Iran.

It is deeply concerning that a discredited group within the Iranian-American community, with blatantly obvious connections with the Islamic Republic, should be allowed to freely influence Washington’s political circles to the detriment of the American peoples’ and ultimately, the world community’s interests. It is also shocking and difficult to explain that a group labeled by the Iranian regime as the “Iranian lobby” could so easily penetrate the US Congress.

NIAC has been trusted, supported and promoted by the Iranian regime and this is the root cause of its deep discreditability within the Iranian community. Nevertheless, some American interest groups have invariably promoted such organizations to influence the US policies towards Iran.

NIAC was founded and grew strong during President Bush’s time in the office. This was mainly due to the disconcerted policies and illusory hopes adopted by his administration for engaging with Tehran which inevitably prepared favorable grounds for the formation of such groups in the first place.

We, the Iranian-Americans believe that only our own mobilization could stop the spread of the Iranian regime’s web of influence in the US. This is the first and most essential step to defend the interests of our community, protect our interests as Americans and defend our compatriots in Iran.

Regarding the contents of this event, once again, the speakers will argue that the time is now rife to engage with the Iranian regime. They will be pushing for all the sanctions to be lifted, and will be arguing that incentives should be augmented. The organizer of the Tuesday event, Trita Parsi, as the moderator and president of NIAC will be trying to persuade the forum what he has been trying to achieve for a long time; that the US should accept the Iranian dominance in the Middle East. In an article in Huffington Post of April 22, 2008 Parsi wrote: “Is the United States ready to share the region with Iran?” Then he emphasized that: “Sooner or later, Iran and the U.S. must learn how to share the region.”

NIAC and its president are fully aware that the US engagement with the Islamic Republic for the purpose of submission to Tehran’s nuclear or regional ambitions is totally out of reach. What they are really set out to achieve, as they have been for a considerably long time, is to buy more precious time for Iran to achieve its nuclear ambitions and hence the regional supremacy and hegemony.

Iran–U.S. Relations: Imagining a New Paradigm

NYU Center for Dialogues Conference

Dear Sirs of N. Y. University ,

It is necessary to bring to your notice that if the Mullahs were civilized enough to hold dialogues with, 30 years would not have passed, hundreds of thousands of Iranians and other innocent people around the world would not have been sacrificed to the alter of the Khomeinist Islamo-Imperialist revolution, and generally the world would not be in the shape that is finds itself in, right now.

You should be wise & careful enough not to be dragged into a trap spread by some shady so-called Iran Lover lobbyists, agents, spies, promoters and apologists.

Thank you.

I made some phone calls to the Senators' offices who plan to meet with the NIAC people. It's disgusting to see how the regime influences these naive idiots through traitors at NIAC.

از جمله این روشنفکران یکی هم به اصطلاح دکترررررررر سروش میباشد که معلوم نیست دکترای احمقی و خیانت خود را از کجا دریافت کرده است؟ هاروارد، آکسفورد، یا ازکلاس خائن پروری بی بی سی لندن؟ نه از هیچکدام ویا همه اینها ، اما درحقیقت، ایشان از انستیتوی مطالعات شرقی و آفریقا! که لانه جلاسوس پروری دولت فخیمه است درجه دکتری در خیانت گرفته اند و همچنین است جناب دکترررررر نوریزاده و امثال ایشان.! این فرد خائن که بزرگترین خیانت را نسبت به ملت ما تحت نام دهان پرکن "انقلاب فرهنگی" هدایت میکرد ( رونوشت برداری از کار احمقانه مائو تستونگ اما بدستور اربان جزیره نشینش بمنظور خراب کردن هر آنچه از دوران پهلوی ها مانده بود) . خسارت وارده از عمل ننگین سروش بر هیچ ایرانی پوشیده نیست، اکنون پس از سی سال منکر دست داشتن و رهبری انقلاب فرهنگی شده است و خود را مبری ازآن خیانت عظیم میداند!

لکن ما به مصاحبه ایشان و دوسه نفر از یارا ن خائنش از جمله آن افغانی قاتل" جلال الدین فارسی" در سال 1980 دست یافتیم که درلینک زیر است. حتی در این مصاحبه بازرنگی خاص خود، سروش ، تقصیر را بگردن خمینی ملعون اسکاتلندی تبار می اندازد! خوب گوش کنید.

از یاران پوزش میخواهم ، لکن داشتن یک چنین سندی برای همگی ما لازم است تا بدانیم این عذر از گناه خواسته های غدار چه مصیبتی را بر کشور درحال پیشرفت ما آنهم در حوزه دانشگاهی، وارد آوردند تا نسلی نادان جایگزین دانایان گردد.

مهر ورزیده این پیام را برای همه ایران دوستان و میهن پرستان بفرستید تاسهم کوچکی از دین خود را به مام میهن ادا کرده باشید.

تندرست و پیروز باشید . با آرزوی رهائی میهن دربند ما و رسیدن بحساب این افراد خائن .

Dear Iranians,

our country and country mean are in grave danger. The regime is tightening the noose hour by the hour as evidenced by media balck outs and transport of Hizbullah and Hamas Militia dressed in Iranian Riot Police Uniforms ready to shoot without any hesitation supported by Baseej militias.

Mullahs apologists (Trita Parsi, Kaveh Afrasiab and Reza Aslan) were busy defending Mullahs on FOX, CNN, MSNBC, without any leadership/voice to represent our side.

Absence of any reaction from Obama due to his naiveté and lack of knowledge of the Islamic Republic and the Middle East (Jimmy Cater revisited), I had no choice but to call on Republicans and plead our case. I was very pleased to see them react and criticize President Obama for his lack of leadership and silence tonight on various TV stations.

Below are the brave and honorable republicans who openly expressed their support and have criticize President Obama and the State department for their indifference and silence.

I strongly and urgently urge you to call their offices and ask to speak to a live person and ask for their support, before it is too late.

I contacted Mike Pence and read him the following:
Honorable Mike Pence, a horrible disaster is in the making in Iran by the mullahs of Iran supported by Hizbullah and Hamas terrorists dressed in police uniforms ready to kill absent foreign media and left to President Obama and the State Department to remain silent. Iran had been a reliable ally of the United Stated, Iranians love Americans and what Americ stands for. They cannot fight this battle alone. Please help and prevent this human catastrophy from taking place.
Please do the right thing.

آدینه: نهم امرداد ماه 1388- سی و یکم ژوئن


آنچه از پی می آید، مطلبی است نوشته شده توسط یکی از هم میهنان گرامی مقیم آمریکا که برایمان ارسال کرده اند:

شبکه لابی رژیم ایران و رهبری جنبش در آمریکا
نوشته: حسن داعی

روز شنبه 25 جولای، هزاران نفر در دهها شهر جهان برای همدردی با مردم ایران گرد هم آمدند. اما آنچه در آمریکا گذشت و تلاشی که از سوی لابی رژیم ملایان برای کنترل و هدایت این جنبش انجام گرفت، یکی از برگ های سیاه مبارزات ایرانیان در خارج از کشور است. در آغاز از خوانندگان درخواست میکنم که به این ویدئوی کوتاه نگاه کنید.1 بابک طالبی، یکی از بنیانگذاران شورای نایاک، در حال رهبری تظاهرات واشنگتن است. نایاک، لابی رژیم ایران در آمریکاست.2 در این ویدئو، مشاهده میکنید که طالبی برای اخراج هموطنانی که با پرچم ایران حضور یافته اند دست به دامان پلیس می شود. تریتا پارسی، رئیس نایاک نیز در تظاهرات حضور دارد.
این حادثه شرم آور یک نمونه مجزا و منحصر بفرد نیست. در لس آنجلس، علیرغم آنکه دهها هزار ایرانی مخالف حکومت و مخالف همین لابی زندگی میکنند، تظاهراتی در صحن دانشگاه انجام گرفت که گرداننده آن مازیار جبرانی بود. وی عضو هیئت مشاوران نایاک می باشد. صدالبته، اکثر شرکت کنندگان در این تظاهرات، هیچ شناختی از نایاک و رابطه جبرانی با آن نداشتند. در سانفراسیسکو نیز دوستان تریتا پارسی که در کمیته برگزاری تظاهرات حضور داشتند، تلاش زیادی کردند که وی جزو سخنرانان این گردهم آئی باشد. این امر با مخالفت دیگران روبرو شد و امکان پذیر نگردید. به اینهمه، بایستی حضور مکرر خود تریتا پارسی در برنامه های مختلف رادیوئی و تلویزیونی شبکه های مهم آمریکا را اضافه نمود.
سازماندهی اکثر تظاهرات در آمریکا و برخی از کشورهای اروپا در اختیار گروهی بنام "اتحاد برای ایران" بود که مسئول اصلی آن هادی قائمی است.3 هادی قائمی خودش نیز یکی از اعضای هیئت مدیره شورای نایاک (به رهبری تریتا پارسی) بوده است. قائمی مدتی نیز برای سازمان "دیدبان حقوق بشر" کار میکرد. یکی از گردانندگان مهم این سازمان حقوق بشری، گری سیک بوده که از طرفداران کارکشته و پر و پا قرص نزدیکی به ملایان میباشد.4
هادی قائمی در کادر برنامه های نایاک در سال 2004 به ایران رفت و با سازمان نیمه دولتی"همیاران" به همکاری پرداخت. همیاران که در ظاهر یک سازمان غیر دولتی است، توسط حسین ملک افضلی که بیش از 15 سال (منجمله در دوران احمدی نژاد) معاون وزیر و عضو کابینه دولت ملایان بود تأسیس شد. همکاری نایاک با همیاران به پیشنهاد و تصویب وزارت خارجه رژیم انجام گرفت. از سال 2002 تا 2006،نایاک مجموعا صدها هزار دلار از بودجه های کنگره آمریکا را دریافت نمود که عمدتا برای همکاری با سازمان همیاران در ایران منظور شده بود.5
باید از قائمی پرسید که چگونه می توان در یک زمان، هم با سازمانی که ساخته و پرداخته دولت ایران است همکاری کرد و هم در مورد نقض حقوق بشر در ایران نیز گزارشی بیطرفانه و منصفانه منتشر نمود. از گذشته پر بار هادی قائمی میگذریم و به امروز میرسیم. وی، رئیس و گرداننده اصلی سازمان "کمپین بین المللی حقوق بشر در ایران" است که در پایان سال 2007 براه افتاد. این سازمان در کمتر از یکسال نردبان ترقی را بالا رفت و به جایگاه امروزی خود یعنی یکی از گردانندگان تظاهرات در آمریکا رسید.6
تأسیس کننده اصلی این سازمان حقوق بشری یک بنیاد هلندی بنام Foundation for Human Security in the Middle East میباشد که مسئول آن فرح کریمی است.7 فرح کریمی که ساکن هلند است، یکی از بنیانگذاران رادیو زمانه میباشد که با بودجه هلند بکار خود ادامه میدهد.8
کنترل جنبش در خارج از کشور ومحدود کردن آن در چهارچوب نظام
هدف اصلی لابی رژیم کنترل جنبش در خارج از کشور و رهبری آن بگونه ای است که نه تنها هم سطح یا جلوتراز جنبش داخل کشور نباشد، بلکه با پائین آوردن سقف مطالبات، ترمزی برای جنبش گردد. در این نوشته کوتاه، با هم به بررسی اظهارات تریتا پارسی و دوستان وی می پردازیم تا با بخشی ازاین هدفها آشنا شویم. در گزارشات مفصل بعدی، این اهداف را بطور گسترده تر مورد بررسی قرار میدهیم.
اولین هدف لابی رژیم، جا انداختن این دروغ است که مردم ایران خواهان تغییر رژیم نیستند و این حکومت بی ثبات و متزلزل نیست و از همین رو، بایستی کماکان سیاست مماشات و زد وبند با آخوندها را ادامه داد. بعنوان مثال، در گزارشی که چند ماه پیش توسط تریتا پارسی، هادی قائمی، گری سیک و عده ای از کار کشته گان سیاست مماشات با آخوندها برای اوباما نوشته شد، اولین مسئله ای که مورد اشاره قرار گرفت همین با ثباتی کل نظام بود:9
" سوال: آیا رژیم ایران شکننده است و شرائط برای تغییر رژیم فراهم است؟
پاسخ: در واقع می توان گفت که در ایران، هیچ حمایت جدی برای تغییرات خارج از قانون اساسی وجود ندارد. درست است که مردم ناراضی اند اما همین مردم بخوبی به یاد دارند که پس از انقلاب چه اوضاعی در ایران بود، یعنی بی قانونی، اعدام های دست جمعی و مهاجرت صدها هزار نفر و جنگ با عراق. مردم نتایج سیاست های آمریکا برای تغییر رژیم در عراق و افغانستان را دیده اند و اصلا دلشان نمی خواهد که این بلا بر سرشان بیاید."
در همین رابطه، فرانسيس فوکوياما که استاد تریتا پارسی، مرشد و حامی وی در واشنگتن است به صحنه آمده و چند روز پیش در مقاله ایکه در وال استریت ژورنال نوشت تأیید میکند که مردم ایران نه خواهان تغییر رژیم اند و نه خواهان تغییر قانون اساسی:10
" مسلما ترجيح براين است که يک قانون اساسی براساس مدل دمکراسی غربی در ايران حاکم شود که در آن آزادی مذهبی ، دولتی سکولار و حق حاکميت مردم و نه حکومت خدا و دين ، به رسميت شناخته شود. اما براساس تمام شواهدی که وجود دارد چين تحولی در قانون اساسی ايران فعلا هدف معترضان نيست. اصلاح طلبان و ميرحسين موسوی طرفدار ادامه نظام جمهوری اسلامی هستند و خواست اصلی آنها تقويت عناصر دمکرايتک و جلوگيری از دخالت نهادهای انتصابی مثل شورای نگهبان و يا مراکز قدرت نظامی در روند انتخابات و احترام به مبانی قانونی است. قانون اساسی جمهوری اسلامی ايران که در اولين سال های انقلاب تصویب شده، ظرفيت های لازم برای تبديل شدن به راهنمايی جهت استقرار حاکميت قانون و موازين دمکراتيک را داراست."
جلوگیری از حمایت آمریکا از جنبش مردم ایران
هدف دیگر لابی رژیم، جلوگیری از حمایت آمریکا از جنبش مردمی در ایران است. بهمین منظور، سعی میکند که موضعگیری آمریکا در حد محکوم کردن خشونت ها باقی بماند و در مورد مسئله اصلی، یعنی جنگ این رژیم قرون وسطائی با مردم ایران موضعی نگیرد. تریتا پارسی و دوستان وی سعی میکنند تا جنبش داخل کشور را به یک "دعوای" انتخاباتی تقلیل دهند و از اوباما میخواهند که جانب هیچکدام از طرفین "دعوا" را نگیرد. "پارسی" در مقاله ایکه نوشته میگوید:11
"محکوم کردن خشونت ها (از طرف اوباما) با حمایت از یکی از طرفهای این دعوای انتخاباتی فرق میکند. مردم ایران به اعضای نایاک گفته اند که مایل به این نیستند که آمریکا خودش را درگیر این نزاع کند. مردم میخواهند که آمریکا استفاده از خشونت توسط دولت را محکوم نماید."
همانطور که ملاحظه میفرمائید، گویا آنچه در ایران اتفاق افتاده فقط یک نزاع انتخاباتی است که خود طرفهای دعوا تکلیف آنرا مشخص میکنند و احتیاجی به دخالت آمریکا یا دیگر دولت های جهان نیست. با نگاهی به یکی دیگر از موضعگیریهای نایاک میتوان منظور آنان را بخوبی باز شناخت. چند روز پس از آغاز قیام در ایران، عده ای از مهمترین نمایندگان کنگره، قطعنامه ای ارائه کردند که وحشیگری رژیم را محکوم کرده و به روشن ترین شکل به دفاع از حقوق مردم ایران بر میخاست. یکی از مسئولان نایاک با اظهار تأسف می نویسد: "این قطعنامه احتمالا با اکثریت قاطع به تصویب میرسد که متاسفانه در نقطه مقابل سیاست های کاخ سفید قرار میگرد. تاکنون، پرزیدنت اوباما خیلی احتیاط میکرد که در این دعوای انتخاباتی جانب هیچیک از طرفین دعوا را نگیرد." 11
همانطور که ملاحظه میشود، هدف لابی رژیم این است که سمپاتی و همدردی مقامات آمریکا در حد اظهار نظر محدود بماند و به هیچ نتیجه عملی منجر نگردد. یکی از شگردهای تبلیغاتی که همیشه مورد استفاده دوستان رژیم قرار میگیرد این است که اگر ایالات متحده از فرد یا جریانی در ایران حمایت کند به دولت بهانه ای برای سرکوب آنان میدهد. این استدلال به چند دلیل بی پایه و پوشالی است. اولا نمی توان بدلیل عکس العمل یک رژیم سفاک از حمایت از مردم سر باز زد. ثانیا مگر اتفاقات همین یک ماه نشان نداد که علیرغم مثلا بیطرفی اوباما، از همان روز اول، رژیم هر که را دستگیر کرد عامل آمریکا و انگلیس معرفی نمود؟ کار بجائی رسید که حسین شریعمتداری حتی رحیم مشائی یعنی معاون احمدی نژاد را نیز عامل آمریکا معرفی کرد.
مهمتر از همه، اگر اسامی کسانی که این استدلال را در آمریکا همیشه تکرار میکنند روی یک کاغذ بنویسیم و فعالیت آنان در رابطه با رژیم آخوندی را نیز جلوی نام آنها بگذاریم، آنوقت بسادگی متوجه خواهیم شد که اصولا این استدلال توسط کسانی تبلیغ میشود که اتفاقا طرفدار سرسخت نزدیکی به ملایان اند و نگرانی اصلی این افراد این است که مبادا زد و بند های آشکار و پنهان با حکومت ایران متوقف گردد.
معرفی اپوزیسیون تبعیدی و حمایت عملی آمریکا بعنوان دو تهدید اصلی جنبش
یکی دیگر از راهکارهای تریتا پارسی و دوستان وی برای جلوگیری از حمایت آمریکا از جنبش مردم، همان داستان شناخته شده ای است که طی چهار سال گذشته به اجرا در آمده است. در این مدت، لابی رژیم با کمک گیری از گروههای ضد جنگ آمریکائی موفق شد تا تحت شعار جلوگیری از جنگ و با تمرکز حمله خود روی جرج بوش و سیاست های بظاهر خصمانه وی، افکار عمومی را نسبت به خطر احمدی نژاد و خامنه ای فریب دهد و با جلوگیری از اتخاذ سیاست های جدی بین المللی در مقابل رژیم موفق گردید که هم برای برنامه اتمی ملایان 4 سال وقت بخرد و هم به دست اندازی این حکومت در کشورهای منطقه کمک کند.
اکنون، همان سناریو به کارگردانی تریتا پارسی و همان بازیگران ظاهرا صلح طلب با هدف عقیم کردن جنبش مردم ایران بار دیگر تکرار میشود. این بار گویا خطر اصلی که جنبش را تهدید میکند، اپوزیسیون تبعیدی و حامیان نئوکان آن در آمریکا است. به چند نمونه نگاه کنیم. حدود یکماه پیش، تریتا پارسی و همپالکی وی بنام رضا اصلان، با خوش خیالی، مقاله ای در نشریه فارین پالیسی نوشتند و خبر مرگ زود هنگام جنبش را به اطلاع مردم و مقامات آمریکا رساندند. به بخش های کوچکی ازاین مقاله نگاه میکنیم که بخوبی گویای اهداف مرحله ای لابی رژیم در آمریکاست. در این مقاله که عنوان آن "پایان آغاز" است، پارسی و اصلان روی سه نکته تأکید میکنند: مردم خواهان تغییر رژیم نیستند، جنبش داخل کشور رو به افول است و خطر واقعی که در کمین نشسته، مصادره جنبش توسط گروههای اپوزیسیون خارج از کشور است که اهدافشان با اهداف مردم در داخل کشور متفاوت است:13
" قیام مردم ایران که پس ازانتخابات شروع شد، احتمالا در حال مرگ زودرس میباشد. دولت احمدی نژاد موفق شد تا یک حرکت مردمی گسترده را به اعتراضات پراکنده کوچک در اینطرف و آنطرف تبدیل کند. آنچه از این حرکت مردمی بجای مانده چیزی بدون رهبری و بدون سازماندهی است که خطر دزدیدن آن توسط گروههای خارج از کشوری نیز وجود دارد.
در واقع، تظاهراتی که درایران پس از انتخابات به وقوع پیوست یک قیام دانشجویان و روشنفکران و یا قیام عناصر ضد رژیم از شمال شهر تهران نبوده است. در عوض، مردمیکه که به خیابانها ریختند بیشتر شامل کسانی بود که به رژیم وفادار بوده و منفعت شان نیز در این است که این رژیم پایدار بر سر جای خود باقی بماند....
گروههای اپوزیسیون خارج از کشوری که اهداف سیاسی شان با تظاهرکنندگان داخل کشور متفاوت است سعی میکنند تا خلا موجود در رهبری جنبش را پر کنند. (بسیاری از این گروهها از مردم خواسته بودند که در انتخابات شرکت نکنند) این فرصت طلبی باعث خشم اپوزیسیون در داخل کشور شده و این حرکت را سرقت جنبش میدانند."
بقیه مقاله نیز به خطر سرقت جنبش توسط گروههای خارج از کشوری و حمایت نئوکان های آمریکا از آنها اختصاص یافته است. درحالیکه مدتهاست اوباما به کاخ سفید رفته، لابی رژیم هنوز روضه ضد نئوکان خود را ادامه میدهد. حمید دباشی یکی از گردانندگان اصلی اعتصاب غذا در نیویورک، در مصاحبه با بی بی سی نگرانی اصلی خود یعنی دزدیده شدن جنبش و حمایت آمریکا از این دزدان را بیان میکند:14
"سوال: به اعتقاد شما اقدامات مهم بعدی که معترضین ایرانی لازم است در دستور کارشان قرار بدهند چیست؟
"تظاهرات داخلی و خارجی، تظاهرات خیابانی، نوشتن مقالات، باز کردن حوزه عمومی برای بحث آزاد و سازنده، بخصوص در خارج از ایران. ندادن فرصت به برخی فرصت طلبان که این آب را گل آلود فرض می کنند و می خواهند از آن ماهی بگیرند. این آب، گل آلود نیست. این آب، زلال و زیبا و شفاف وحیات بخش است. برای کسانی که در خارج از ایران هستند، وظایف خطیری است هست مثل:رسوایی سازمانهایی که از دولت آمریکا پول می گیرند که ظاهرا دموکراسی و حقوق بشر را در ایران ترویج دهند و در واقع، بدترین دشمنان حقوق بشر و دموکراسی در ایران هستند. همچنین ممانعت از تحریم اقتصادی ایران، چرا که ضررش مستقیما متوجه مردم ایران می شود. علاوه بر اینها، تلاش گسترده برای ممانعت از حمله نظامی به ایران که اولین قربانی اش این نهضت سبز است. خطر حمله نظامی اسراییل یا آمریکا به ایران، خطری جدی است و چنین حمله ای، مساوی سرکوب نهضت سبز و قتل و کشتار آزادی خواهان ایران است."
همانطور که مشاهده میشود، نگرانی اصلی این افراد بیشتر سیاست های آمریکاست. این نگرانی را میتوان به روشنی در اعلامیه ای مشاهده نمود که سه تن از صلح طل

Rise of the ‘Iran Lobby’: Tehran’s front groups move on — and into — the Obama Administration

By Clare M. Lopez

A complex network of individuals and organizations with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran is pressing forward in seeming synchrony to influence the new U.S. administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran. Spearheaded by a de facto partnership between the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other organizations serving as mouthpieces for the mullahs’ party line, the network includes well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world.

This report — documenting the rise of what can accurately be described as the “Iran Lobby” in Washington, D.C. — is derived entirely from unclassified open sources and describes in detail the activities, linkages, and objectives of this alarming alliance between NIAC, CAIR and others that is aimed at co-opting America’s foreign policy in the Middle East and specifically with Iran.

Understanding the involvement of the Tehran regime in the foundation and continuing activities of organizations like these and their allies will become increasingly important to understanding the extent of the regime’s influence on American foreign policy decisions regarding Iran.
- - - - - - - - -

As these organizations expand, multiply and, in the process, intensify their efforts to promote a shared and ominous agenda, it is imperative to recognize the role being played by what amount to their interlocking (or at least overlapping) boards of directors, donations from the same foundations and growing access to some key members of Congress and top levels of US policymaking circles. Of special concern is the growing penetration of the Obama Administration by a number of individuals with such associations.

To be sure, efforts at influencing U.S. decision-making are common among a host of legitimate interest groups, including many foreign countries. But in this context, where the guiding force behind such influence operations emanate from the senior-most levels of a regime like Iran’s — which holds the top spot on the State Department list of state-sponsors of terror, makes no secret of its hatred and enmity for the United States and its ally, Israel, and acts in myriad ways to support those who have assassinated, held hostage, kidnapped, killed and tortured American civilians and military personnel over a 30-year period — such operations must be viewed with serious concern.

Specifically, the de facto alliance between CAIR, one of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates named by the U.S. Department of Justice as an unindicted co- conspirator in the 2007 and 2008 Holy Land Foundation trials, and groups such as NIAC and its predecessor, the American-Iranian Council (AIC), which long have functioned openly as apologists for the Iranian regime, must arouse deep concern that U.S. national security policy is being successfully targeted by Jihadist entities hostile to American interests

Iran's Foreign Agents of Disinformation


Professor Daniel M. Zucker

I would to discuss a variety of individuals and groups that serve the Islamic Republic of Iran as agents for disseminating VEVAK's program of disinformation.

Our firs subject is Kam Zarrabi, a naturalized Iranian who came to the United Stares in 1956 to study at UCLA before returning to Iran to work in the oil industry for the Shah's government. Mr. Zarrabi left Iran in 1979 and claims to be non-religious. His writings are political and invariably suggest that Iran is not a threat to either the United States or Israel. In article after article Zarrabi suggests that the US should come to terms with Tehran and distance itself from Israel. In a shrewd attempt at masking their intentions, he attacks Vali Nasr and Ali Gheissari for their article in the December 13, 2004 New York Times entitled "Foxes in Iran's Henhouse". But despite this "attack" on the two Iranian academics, Zarrabiâ's bottom line is similar - the US should not confront Iran but rather come to an accommodation with the regime.



Dr. Vali Reza Nasr: Baztab, the VEVAK website, carried an article by former Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC/Pasdaran) chief Mohsen Rezai (now Secretary of the IRI's State Expediency Council) on October 26, 2006 praising Nasr's rise to prominence as an expert on Shiite political power. The article notes that both Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have met with Nasr, but that Nasr's advice that the US should accept Iran as a regional power, and start negotiations and come to terms with Iran's leaders has not yet been accepted as yet. Rezai calls Nasr's policy recommendations as "realistic and inclusive" as they accord the Shiites more power, as opposed to Orientalist Bernard Lewis' approach that gave greater control to the Sunni with hopes to democratize Iraq and the region. Rezai's article has disappeared from Baztab in the last few days, but it seems that he feels Vali Nasr is doing a good job. Given Rezai's background and his current position in the regime, we should wonder why Nasr is receiving his approval.. Looks like Vali is telling it just like Tehran wants it told.

In 1995 he raised money for the DNC. In 1998, in the midst of the Lewinsky affair, Nemazee collected $60,000 for Bill Clinton's legal defense fund in $10,000 increments from relatives and friends. Clinton subsequently nominated Nemazee as ambassador to Argentina but withdrew the nomination after an article in Forbes raised questions about Nemazee's business dealings in the 1980s and '90s--which noted that the American-born Nemazee magically became "Hispanic" by acquiring Venezuelan citizenship because of a requirement that certain California public pension funds be run by minorities.

By 2004 he was New York finance chair for John Kerry's campaign, and in 2006 he served under Senator Chuck Schumer as the national finance chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC)--a period during which the committee raised about $25 million more than its Republican counterpart. In March (2007) Nemazee, at the behest of McAuliffe, threw a dinner for Hillary at Manhattan's swank Cipriani restaurant, which featured Bill Clinton and raised more than $500,000.

In 2001, at the invitation of Mobil Oil Chairman Lucio Noto, whom he counts as a "personal friend," Hassan Nemazee joined the board of the American-Iranian Council, (AIC) a U.S. lobbying group that consistently has supported lifting U.S. sanctions on Iran and accommodating the Tehran regime.

Hassan Nemazee also helped establish the Iranian-American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) Because of his association with IAPAC, Hassan Nemazee was accused of serving as an agent for the Islamic government of Iran by the Student Movement Coordinating Committee for Democracy in Iran (SMCCDI)- via Crosswalk

As reported at Crosswalk, political scientist Jerome Corsi, told CNSNews.com, "The Democratic Party and John Kerry have been funded by pro-mullah groups who have Israel as their sworn enemy. They are funding insurgents to go against our troops in Iraq, and John Kerry wants to give them nuclear fuel."

Bill Clinton attended a dinner earlier this year sponsored by Namazee that raked in $500,000 for his wife's presidential election:

The former president has been the featured guest at a series of exclusive lunches and dinners, where attendees are asked to pony up $4,600 _ the maximum allowable contribution _ to his wife’s campaign.

Hillary Clinton has just scored a big coup: Top Dem donor Hassan Nemazee, who was John Kerry's 2004 New York finance chair and the force behind the DSCC's fundraising success in 2006, has decided to back the New York Senator, Election Central has learned.

In the world of New York's top donors, Nemazee is one of the biggest gets. Kerry's New York finance operation raised approximately $75 million in 2004. With Nemazee as the national finance chair, Chuck Schumer's DSCC in 2006 raised $115 million, outpacing the NRSC by substantial sums and thus helping Dems take control of the Senate.

Now Nemazee is set to push hard on Clinton's behalf. "I'll be doing my best to raise as much money as possible in the shortest amount of time," Nemazee said, adding that he hadn't set a fundraising target.

IAPAC co-founder Nemazee has been a big donor to several Iranian-friendly politicians:

--Bill Clinton: $60,000 from Hassan Nemazee to Clinton’s legal defense fund, prior to Clinton nominating Nemazee to be ambassador to Argentina
--Hillary Clinton: $5,000 from IAPAC to Friends of Hillary on 03/14/2005
--Al Gore: $50,000 from Hassan Nemazee to the Gore-Lieberman Recount Fund in 2000
--John Kerry: $187,000 from Hassan Nemazee to Kerry from 1999 to 2003 and over $500,000 to Kerry’s 2004 campaign
--Ted Kennedy: $7,000 from various members of the Nemazee family to Kennedy for Senate in 1995 and $2,000 from IAPAC to Kennedy for Senate since 2004
--Joseph Biden: $2,100 from Hassan Nemazee to Citizens for Biden on 09/30/2005
--Charles Schumer: $1,000 from IAPAC to Friends of Charles Schumer on 01/16/2004
--Arlen Specter: $1,000 from IAPAC to Citizens for Arlen Specter on 1/16/2004 and $1,000 from IAPAC in 2006
--Chuck Hagel: $1,000 from IAPAC to the Hagel for Senate Committee on 10/02/2006
--Robert Torricelli: $4,000 from Hassan and Sheila Nemazee to Torricelli for US Senate, Inc. from 1996 to 2002
--Richard Gephardt: $2,000 from Hassan Nemazee to Gephardt in Congress Committee from 1996 to 2002
--Harold Ford, Jr.: $1,000 from Hassan Nemazee to Harold Ford Jr. for Tennessee on 09/21/2006
--Nancy Pelosi: $1,000 from IAPAC to Nancy Pelosi for Congress on 10/02/2006

SMCCDI and Captain's Quarters reported more on Nemazee and John Kerry's curious promise to give nuclear fuel to the mullahs and his links to Nemazee among others.

Six Nemazee family members and friends (including the caretaker of his 12-acre Katonah, N.Y., estate) donated a total of $60,000 – the maximum legally allowed -- to Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund.

Susan Akbarpour, was another donor. She has put loosening visa requirements for Iranians on the top of her political agenda, along with lifting U.S. sanctions on Iran and getting the U.S. government to open a dialogue with the regime in Tehran. Just by coincidence, those are the top three priorities of the Tehran regime, as well.

Honorable US State Department Representatives/Iran Desk; NEA/IR,

Herewith, please note the below picture belonging to Dr. Hamid Molana, an aid to President Ahmadi Nejad.

This guy is US Citizen and is aiding the terror supporting, corrupt Mullah's regime.

He comes and goes to United States as he feels and there is no stopping him. Could we ask why?

Why do you have double standards? Why does your Embassy in Abu Dhabi turns over Freedom Fighters Kavoussi cousins to Emirate police to be handed to Mullah's regime for execution and in the same time protecting this guy when he plans killing innocent US GI'S in Iraq and Afghanistan?

We are part of vast majority of Iranian Americans who wish freedom and democracy return to Iran by removing the current shameful regime.

In the past 30 years other than direct appeasement by various administrations we have seen nothing!

Meantime, our families remained in Iran are being tortured and killed, just for requesting freedom and democracy.

If you do not intent to do something about Dr. Hamid Molana and people like him serving the tyrants, we will initiate a class action law suit against these individuals.

Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and assistance.

Very truly yours,

Yari National Group

چه کسی احمدی نژاد را درامریکا هدایت خواهد کرد+فیلم
قرار است محمود احمدي نژاد اوائل مهر ماه به منظور شركت در شصت و چهارمين اجلاس سالانه مجمع عمومي سازمان ملل به نيویورک سفر كند. گفته مي شود دراین سفر نيز چون دفعات گذشته حمید مولانا او را در پشت پرده هدایت خواهد کرد ، ولي حمید مولانا کيست ؟ اين مطلب به سوالهاي اوليه در این مورد پاسخ می دهد :

یکي از کشفیات بزرگ محمود احمدي نژاد فردی امریکائي ایرانی به نام حمید مولانا است که پس از چند دهه زندگی در امریکا به دين مبين اسلام فقاهتی مشرف شد و به جمهوري اسلامي آمد تا از مزایای مادی و معنوی آن بهره مند شود . این پروفسور ذوب شده در ولایت که سال گذشته رسما به مشاورت رئیس جمهور اسلامي گماشته شد در حال حاضر ضمن انجام ماموریتهاي آنچنانی برای تماسهای پشت پرده با محافل امریکائي ، در بنيادی به نام «بنیاد مولانا » که با بودجه ناچیز 329 میليون تومانی اهدائی مجلس شورای اسلامی از کیسه پر فتوت ملت به اوواگذار شده است در شمال شهر تهران سرگرم دعاگوئی و تهیه طرحهائی برای پياده كردن افكار خود در قالب برنامه پنجم توسعه تحت عنوان «نظام رسانه‌هاي اسلامي» است .

از کرامات ديگر این پروفسور دو ملیتی ،اشتغال به نویسندگي و یادداشت نویسی در روزنامه کيهان ، بغل دست رفیق گرمابه و گلستانش [ حسین شریعتمداری ] است . دکتر مهدي خزعلی فرزند آیت الله خزعلی که اکنون در زندان آب خنک می خورد در وبلاگش می نویسد « حمید مولانا یا به تعبیر کیهان" پروفسور حمید مولانا" کیست؟ بیش از نیم قرن در آمریکا چه می کرده است؟ این 30 سال بعد از انقلاب کجا بود؟ رابطه او با کیهان چیست؟ نام اصلی و قبلی او چه بوده است؟ سابقه خانوادگی و حسب و نسب او چیست؟ آیا حقیقت دارد که تابعیت آمریکا دارد؟ چگونه است که از راه نرسیده مشاور رئیس جمهور ضد آمریکایی می شود و از همه انقلابیون انقلابی تر و از همه مسلمانان مسلمان تر است؟ ارتباط سازمانی او و احمدی نژاد چیست؟ و هزار سئوال دیگر»

آش پروفسور مولانا در جمهوری اسلامی به حدي چرب است که رژیم فقاهتی رسما با برگزاری مجالس آنچنانی از او تجلیل می کندو خبرگزاري فارس با انتشار خبری با عنوان «همايش نكوداشت پروفسور حميد مولانا» گزارش تکریم خبرگزاری جمهوری اسلامي و چند دستگاه دیگر وابسته به رژیم از این عزيزدردانه ر با بوق و کرنا اعلام مي کند

حضرت استادی در باره اندیشه های اسلامخواهانه خود کتاب هم نوشته اند .البته استادی برای این کتابنویسی سرشان به توبره و آخور بند بوده و و بر اساس دلايل موجود حق تالیف کتاب «الگوي مطبوعات و رسانه اسلامي» را با چند جا از جمله « مرکز پژوهشهای مجلس » و «پژوهشگاه فرهنگ و انديشه اسلامي» معامله کرده و وجوه دریافتي را به جهاز هاضمه اسلامی بي در وپیکرش سرزیر کرده است .

ربودن عنوان دلالی رژیم از همپالکی محترمشان دکتر[هوشنگ امیر احمدی] در مسابقه «تجديد روابط با امریکا» از شاهکارهاي ديگر حضرت استادی است که بی اختيار انسان را به یاد سروده مشهور « دزدی که نسیم را بدزدد دزد است » می اندازد .برای پی بردن به افکار و انديشه های ولایتمدارانه استاد ، به بخشهائی از مصاحبه کوتاه شده وي با سيماي جمهوری اسلامي توجه کنید

نادر کرمي

در حالي که روز سه‌شنبه هشتم بهمن‌ماه، محمود احمدي‌نژاد، لايحه بودجه سال ۱۳۸۸ را تقديم مجلس و در نطق ‏خود اعلام کرد که به دليل کاهش درآمدها هزينه‌ها را به حداکثر ۳۷ ميليارد دلار محدود خواهد کرد، ‌خبرها ‏حکايت از آن دارد که بودجه کلاني به حميد مولانا، مشاور وي در آمريکا تخصيص داده شده است.‏

براساس گزارش هاي واصله، بودجه تنظيم شده از سوي دولت که اختصار آن موجب اعتراض برخي نمايندگان ‏شده، به برخي نهادهاي ناشناخته و غيردولتي مبالغ هنگفتي را اختصاص داده است. در اين بخش فهرست اشخاص ‏حقيقي و حقوقي غيردولتي كه رديفي در بودجه به آنها اختصاص داده شده ذكر شده است.‏

گفته مي شود در اين بخش از بودجه صراحتا از بنيادي ناشناخته تحت عنوان "بنياد فرهنگي مولانا" نام برده شده ‏است؛ بنيادي که به مشاور آمريكايي احمدي نژاد و نويسنده ثابت روزنامه کيهان يعني حميد مولانا تعلق دارد. بر ‏اين اساس روشن شده در بودجه سال آتي کشور که گفته مي شود يکي از سال هاي سخت اقتصاد کشور باشد، پيش ‏بيني شده است مبلغ 337 ميليون تومان از منابع ملي به بنياد آقاي مولانا تعلق بگيرد. ‏

اين براي اولين بار است که چنين بنيادي در بودجه کشور داراي رديف اختصاصي مي شود ‌ و حتي در رسانه ها ‏نيز از آن نامي برده نمي شود. ‏

اختصاص چنين بودجه‌اي به يک بنياد ناشناس که به اعتقاد ناظران مي تواند تامين کننده بخشي از منابع مالي مورد ‏نياز تبليغات انتخاباتي محود احمدي نژاد باشد، ‌در حالي صورت مي‌گيرد که بودجه احزاب قانوني کشور همچون ‏سالهاي اخير و بر خلاف برنامه چهارم لغو شده است.

NIAC and US Policy toward Iran

Written by Dr. Arash Irandoost
Source: http://hakemiat-e-mardom.blogspot.com/

Thursday, 14 January 2010 19:12

The White House is in the process of fine tuning its Iranian Policy. On the sidelines, various groups are positioning to shape the plan. Front and center is NIAC, the National Iranian American Council, an organization that presents itself as the Iranian-American voice for Iran . On the surface, NIAC's statements sound very noble. However, if examined closely, NIAC is actually at odds with the majority of the Iranian-American community.

NIAC's recently published internal documents, which it had to furnish Mr. Hassan Dai, an Iranian expat, who was sued by NIAC for his claim that it is a lobbyist for the Islamic Republic, paints a very disturbing and troublesome picture of the organization. The following information supports these extensive claims:

1. Representation: NIAC does not represent a large constituency of Iranian-Americans. NIAC internal memos clearly show NIAC overstated the true number of its Iranian American members, altered in-house survey results, and mislead Congressional members. With estimates of one million plus, Iranian-Americans in the U.S. , NIAC's membership, as stated at the time of the documentation, is under five hundred members, a very insignificant number.

2. IRI as America 's Friend: NIAC sees no fundamental clash of interests between Iran and US. According to Trita Parsi, there is no justification for US hostility toward Iran . Trita believes that the Iranian regime has always been ready to reach an agreement with the US . The main reason behind US hostilities and refusal to engage Iran , Trita Parsi says, is Israel . The problem with Parsi's assertion is that it contradicts the reality. For thirty years, the IRI has demonstrated a consistent characteristic, a passionate hatred of America . The most popular rallying cry of the Islamic Republic is "Death to America ," through its well financed and highly orchestrated street rallies. America is the "Great Satan" and nurtured enemy of Islamic Republic. It is "the kiss of death" for any Islamic Republic official to show any sign of befriending America . Likewise, seeking mullah's friendship by the US is naive and foolhardy and worthless.

3. Dialogue and Diplomacy: Despite NIAC's assertion that dialogue and diplomacy is the best approach, thirty years of dialogue by various US administrations has shown that the regime is interested in dialogue only to buy itself enough time in order to develop its weapon's program. IRI uses its proxies within the United States to convince various American officials that the regime is desirous of a dialogue. The radical and irrational nature of the regime, intent on its expansionist ideology, makes any honest and meaningful dialogue with the regime an utter waste of time.

4. Use of Sanctions: NIAC has maintained that sanctions are counterproductive and ineffective and will inflict pain and suffering on the ordinary Iranians. Effectiveness of sanctions as a tool can be argued both ways. To those that see Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism and an International threat to world peace, targeted sanctions are a potent tool. On the other hand, for groups such as NIAC, sanctions are to be avoided at all cost to ensure the regime's survival. NIAC's campaign against sanctions is not to protect the ordinary Iranians, as it claims, but is an orchestrated effort by Oil Corporations seeking economic ties between Iran and America. Smart sanctions will hit hardest at the regime, and affect ordinary Iranians only incidentally. Targeted sanctions will deepen the divide between the public and the military-religious dictatorship.

5. NIAC as IRI Lobby: There is extensive evidence that NIAC engages with Islamic Republic's top level officials, facilitating meetings between IRI and various US politicians, despite limits imposed on it as a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt organization. The governmental press in Tehran has called Parsi and his organization NIAC as the "Iranian lobby in Washington". Indictments of Bob Ney and Hassan Nemazie with close ties to NIAC clearly paint a disturbing picture of the organization. Recently, Senator Jon Kyl requested a full investigation of NIAC's questionable activities, which if successful it might shed more light on NIAC's real intentions.

6. Islamic Republic is Rational and Pragmatic: When Ahmadinejad shoots off test missiles while engaged in uranium enrichment, or makes appalling statements about wiping Israel "off the map," one wonders how pragmatic and rational Islamic Republic really is?

7. NIAC as Human Rights Advocate: Despite extreme brutality and crack down and stories of rape, torture and killing, NIAC issued a statement on June 16, 2009 asserting that United States "should not interfere" as its involvement would be counterproductive." Parsi also took issue with a strong statement of support for the young Iranian freedom fighters expressed by Senator Joseph Lieberman when he urged the Obama administration to "speak out, loudly and clearly, about what is happening in Iran and unambiguously express its solidarity with the brave Iranians. Trita Parsi, unashamedly, has referred to Iran 's blatant human rights violation as "less than flattering human rights record," and anticipated "a trend towards the improvement of human rights situation" in Iran . The reality is, human rights violations have gotten progressively worse. Iran is second to China on human rights violations and NIAC has never taken a real strong position in defense of human rights in Iran, except for occasional "feel good" and apologetic statements.

Iran has one of the youngest demographics in the world. Over 70% of the population is under the age of 35. On June 12th, they went to the streets, chanting "Where is my vote?" Demonstrations are getting more organized and are spreading to other parts of Iran to form a truly popular movement.

Today, the protesters no longer are seeking democratic elections; they are demanding regime change. There are cracks appearing almost daily within the regime. About 27 Iranian diplomats have already defected. Many ayatollahs have declared the regime neither republic, nor Islamic. Any US policy towards Iran needs to seek input from a larger more diverse group of Iranians representing current thinking on Iran in order to develop a more robust, effective and sustainable foreign policy towards Iran.

Trita Parsi left Iran when he was four years old. He is not even an Iranian-American which disqualifies him to speak for Iranian Americans. His experience on Iran is rather limited to personalities who are either regime supporters, seek economic ties with Iran , or are Islamic Republic high level officials. Limiting the discussion and input only to NIAC, and monopolization of the discussion by NIAC, and its proxies will have devastating results.

Mullahs are intent on developing nuclear weapons. With a nuclear Iran as a major power in the volatile Middle East and with oil price at 70 to 80 dollars a barrel, the Islamic Republic will expand its presence around the world. In collaboration with allies such as Russia , China and Venezuela , Islamic Republic will flaunt its military power in the Persian Gulf to demonstrate its regional dominance and superiority in the Middle East, challenging Israel into a direct and inevitable confrontation. If mullahs are allowed to realize their nuclear aspirations, its pernicious and disastrous impact will be felt far beyond the Middle East .

By supporting Iranian opposition groups, the world community not only can avert a regional and potentially global catastrophe, it will help establish a democratic system of government in the region. If Iranians are successful in shaking off the yoke of theocracy, their success could herald the failure of a political and militant Islam. Helping Iran become a democracy not only is a moral imperative, but should be considered an essential foreign policy priority. On December 7, Iranians demonstrators shouted loudly "Obama are you with us or with them?" It is time for the United States to place itself on the right side of history. President Obama has no logical alternative but to stand with the people of Iran or shoulder the responsibility for dangerous consequences of propping up a dictatorship bent on expansion of a religious and fanatical ideology.


Dr. Arash Irandoost is an Iranian-American researcher and a political activist who believes that Islamic Republic cannot be reformed and advocates for a regime change for Iran . He has been published in numerous magazines and blogs on hakemiat-e-mardom.

Reza Aslan to speak at event moderated by former editor of Muslim student publication that praised Osama bin Laden as a great mujahid
The new Fritz Kuhn's mask slips yet again

Reza Aslan has become a Jihad Watch case study in how the media elites are either ignorant of or complicit with the Islamic supremacist agenda. Aslan is a vaunted media-saturated "moderate" Muslim whose Islamic supremacist ties and proclivities are becoming more ill-concealed by the day. Given that his actual output consists essentially of vapid and/or deceptive platitudes salted with embarrassingly puerile ad hominem attacks, his relative prominence can only be ascribed to the media's anxiousness to prop up Muslim "moderates" and further their program of glossing over and obfuscating Islamic jihad and Islamic supremacism.
But Aslan keeps making it more difficult for them by doing things that are anything but "moderate." He is, for example, a Board member of the National Iranian American Council, a group that genuine Iranian pro-democracy forces regard as an apologetic vehicle for the Islamic Republic of Iran. He has tried to pass off Iran's genocidally-minded President Ahmadinejad as a liberal reformer. He has called on the U.S. Government to negotiate with Ahmadinejad himself, as well as with Hamas -- that is, with two of the most barbaric and murderous adherents of Sharia. He has even praised the jihad terror group Hizballah as "the most dynamic political and social organization in Lebanon," as well as the Jew-hating, women-hating, kuffar-hating Muslim Brotherhood.
He has also spoken at events sponsored by the Muslim Students Association, a Brotherhood group. And now he is speaking at an event co-sponsored by the Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and moderated by none other than Edina Lekovic.
Edina Lekovic is the Muslim Public Affairs Council flack whom Steve Emerson caught lying on national television, denying she was editor of a Muslim student publication that praised Osama bin Laden as a great mujahid. Emerson produced copies of the rag showing Lekovic's name on the masthead as editor on the very same page on which the praise for Osama appeared.
Aslan's mask just keeps slipping.
"You're Invited to 'The Domestic Crusaders' West Coast Book Tour & Culture Show Extravaganza on Feb. 12th," from the Muslim Public Affairs Council:
McSweeney's, in association with MPAC, CAIR-LA and The Before Columbus Foundation invite you to celebrate the historic publication of the first major play about Muslim Americans - "The Domestic Crusaders" - at the IMAN Cultural Center on Saturday, Feb. 12. [...]
Guests and performances include:
