Court Docs: Iranian-American Lobbying Group NIAC Defrauded Feds, Lied to Congressmen, Paid for Congressional Testimony, and Arranged Secret US/Iran Meetings
Pamela Geller has just published this revealing and important message from the Iranian-American human rights activist Arash Irandoost:
ØØ±Ù Ø¨Ø³ Ø§Ø³Øª. Ù…ØªØØ¯ Ø´ÙˆÛŒÙ…. Ø¹Ù…Ù„ Ú©Ù†ÛŒÙ…
It is time to act. Court documents released as a result of a lawsuit filed by NIAC against Hassan Dai paint a very disturbing picture of Trita Parsi and the NIAC. They range from defrauding the federal government,
lying to members of Congress, arranging secret meetings between the US
and the criminal regime, to recent revelation that Trita Parsi paid
Anne Singleton to provide testimony to U.S. Congress. NIAC has lied
about its membership numbers. It claimed once that it had 33,000
members and now court documents reveal that it has less than 500
members and is not even willing to disclose them, we think the number
to be even lower. As a 501 c3 tax exempt, NIAC refuses to disclose its
audit and tax reports. Many
credible news organizations have expressed concern about NIAC’s
activities. NIAC has falsely claimed that it represents Iranian
Americans. While it is shunned from the Iranian-American community and
does not even answer questions raised by the Iranian-Americans, a constituency he purports to represent. Have you asked why?
On February 26, 2011, NIAC held a public
event in Plano, Texas and claimed that it was sponsored by the Press
Club and Dallas and The World Affairs Council. Since Trita would not
let us record the event and our questions were filtered and altered, I
called and objected to event sponsors, to my surprise, I was told by
both organization (I have documents) that they had not heard of
the event and had not sponsored the event. Do we really want such a
deceitful organization to represent us? NIAC’s stooge Ambassador,
Sirros Amoie whose family recently returned to Iran????, falsely
claimed that I was a part of the MEK organization.
There is just no limit to Trita’s lies
and slanders. Much like IRI officials who use Taggiyeh to justify their
crimes and hide their nuclear activity, Trita Parsi is adept
at Calumniation. Trita falsely charges others with malicious intent,
attacks the good name and reputation of others who are opposed to him.
Yes Trita lies! Much like its IRI masters! About 5 months ago we had
reached more than 2,700 members in a similar cause like this against
NIAC but the NIAC Cyber Army was able to deceive the CAUSE
administrators and bring the cause down, as it was reported and bragged
about by NIAC’s Jamal Abdi.
Have you ever wondered why NIAC does not allow comments on its articles, websites or blogs?
Have you asked why Trita Parsi was paid by CIA?
Have you NIAC why Trita Parsi has a Swedish bank account and who were the depositors and why he did not pay taxes on it?
Trita Parsi was intimately involved with the convicted Congressman Bob Ney to help IRI get around the US-Iran sanctions.
Do you know who was behind the Pugwash meetings?
Have you asked why the PARSA Foundation (now closed down) donated thousands of dollars to NIAC?
NIAC held a Leadership Conference in
October, many who attended were not even Iranian-Americans, have you
asked why they were allowed to roam the Hall of our Nations’s Capitol
and talk to our representatives?
Trita Parsi is not an Iranian-American,
how can he represent our interests.Our grievances against NIAC and Trita
Parsi are plenty! For questions are many.
It is our belief that the Obama
Administration is working closely with NIAC to appease the
Islamic Republic and bring it to the negotiations table, a regime that
attempted to assassinate a foreign diplomat on our soil. We believe
that the IRI cannot be reformed and the Islamic Republic have ulterior
motives, just look at their own writings and statements:
“Killing is a great Divine gift.”
“Those who say Islam should not kill don’t understand [it]. Killing is a
great [divine] gift that appears [to man]. A religion that does not
include [provisions for] killing and massacre is incomplete. Those who
claim that Jesus was averse to killing and war, harm his prophetic
mission”¦ Killing is the same as mercy.”
“Violence is the heart of Islam.”
Ayatollah Yazdi ““ Senior Advisor to
Ahmadinejad and IRGC Leaders: “We must wipe away the shameful stain
whereby some people imagine that violence has no place in Islam”¦ we have
decided and are determined to argue that violence is the heart of Islam.”
Examples are many!
Let’s choose a candidate that respects
and values our opinions. Obama turned his back when Neda was shot as
he has turned his back on us and works with organizations that advocate
for policies favorable to the criminal and rapist regime.
It is time to act. Every member, every
call, every fax, every letter, every petition to your representatives
counts. Do your duty for Iran and the United States. Let them know
what you think!
Let them know you/we matter!
Pro Democracy Movement of Iran
Geller has more on NIAC in her recent American Thinker article, “Why Obama Betrayed the Iranian People”:
Trita Parsi is the president of the George Soros-funded National Iranian American Council (NIAC), a powerful Iranian lobbying
group in Washington. Arash Irandoost of the Pro-Democracy Movement
of Iran calls Parsi “an intellectually dishonest regime apologist and
an unofficial and unregistered lobbyist for the Iranian regime.”
According to Irandoost,
“Trita Parsi contributes to the regime’s agenda and serves the
interests of those in power in the Islamic Republic of Iran, not the
Iranians, nor the Iranian-Americans.”
And the Progressive American-Iranian Committee says
that when NIAC and Parsi received funding for various projects from the
National Endowment for Democracy (NED), “NIAC’s projects were
approved and welcomed by the Iranian regime.” NIAC coordinated
its work inside Iran with Hamyaran, a “government initiated agency
incepted, initiated, founded and managed by the Iranian regime.” NIAC
and Parsi even lobbied
the U.S. Congress to “stop appropriating funds for independent
democratic movements and NGOs that were not under Hamyaran or regime’s
Not surprisingly, Parsi opposes sanctions against the Islamic Republic, claiming
that “imposing new sanctions prior to diplomacy having begun will only
decrease the chances of successful diplomacy.” The NIAC has opposed
sanctions for quite some time. Iranian dissident Hassan Daioleslam notes
that “in 2008, when [the] U.S. Congress was showing some teeth to the
Iranian regime,” a coalition of Islamic groups, antiwar groups, and
others founded the Campaign for New American Policy on Iran to fight
against new sanctions against Iran called for by the advisory
resolution H.R. 362. This resolution was not passed, and “NIAC and
Parsi,” says Daioleslam, “were on top of this event.”
And who is on the NIAC Board? Stealth Islamic supremacist Reza
Aslan is on the NIAC Board. It is no surprise in light of Aslan’s
NIAC connection that 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.
Aslan 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, which is dedicated in its own words to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” Aslan wrote: “The Muslim Brotherhood will have a significant role to play in post-Mubarak Egypt. And that is good thing.” If, in 1932, someone had written that “the National Socialist Party will have a significant role to play in post-Weimar Germany, and that is a good thing,” he would have rightly been called a Nazi sympathizer.
Aslan has also spoken at events sponsored by the Muslim Students Association, a Brotherhood group, and at an event co-sponsored by the Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and moderated by the notorious Edina Lekovic, 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.
