Spying in Iran

After most major Western telecommunication companies were forced to pull out of Iran, the Chinese giant Huawei quickly filled the void. Read this 

UANI Applauds Huawei for Ending New Business with Iran.

While this is an important first step, we call on Huawei to fully end its business with the brutal regime in Iran. Given the regime's history of misusing telecommunications technology to conduct espionage on citizens, there is simply no justification for doing any such business in Iran.”

Because of imported electronic tracking systems, there are many Iranians who have lost their lives and/or are being brutalized in prisons throughout the country.

All those companies providing tools to further brutalize the Iranian people which include government policy of rape, torture, mutilation and murder of Iranian men, woman and children should be exposed for what they are, amoral corporations.

The executives of these amoral entities should also be aware that they are personally liable as accessory to all the well documented and publically known crimes facilitated by their products and services.

Aynak, I dont mean to intrude, but...

You need to look at the bigger picture 

This particular company, to my understanding has been for a number of years attempting to expand and compete in very lucrative routers and Base station markets in US and US friendly countries, and has been prevented to do so- mainly by US companies- citing their close collaboration with chinese government. I can tell you that they are addressing this issue surprisingly well. Consider this then, if a company is happy to sacrifice contracts with chinese government to gain US market share, would they hesitate in making a minor sacrifice in dumping Iranian market?

I do agree with you though on Iranian government is buying a lot on black market, but that is not in itself an argument against sanctions. In the end of the day, a lot of the  electronics in these equipment, down to component level have a dual nature (military as well as civilian), which brings us back to regime's relentless insistance on "nuclear technology", their missile projects, etc which I consider to be the real reason/excuse for all the sanctions.....

Just my two cents.

Mobile-phone tracking

by Fred on

For those who care to know about  mobile-phone tracking that among others this Chinese Co. has provided the Islamist Rapists who use it to brutalize Iranians, might care to read this WSJ report.

Airtight sanctions will make availability of all these tracking services to the Islamist Rapists more difficult and expensive.

This post is inaacurate at best Fred

"After most major Western telecommunication companies were forced to pull out of Iran, the Chinese giant Huawei quickly filled the void."

Who forced them out of Iran Fred?   This is a point you and anyone pushing for blanket  sanctions have to explain.

Iranian ISP's (big or small) had only 2 vendors to buy routing equipment from up until a few years ago:   Cicso and Juniper.  Both of these companies were barred from selling to Iran, due to U.S sanction policies (driven by AIPAC) for over a decade now.   Iranian ISP's used to buy these brands from U.A.E and Kuwait and Malaysia at 3 or 4 times the cost.  And Still can.

The only difference now is that Huwie has *emerged* in the last few years as a high tech giant and they are not abiding by U.S imposed sanctions on Iran, and taking market share.

What you would need to explain, is that how this --Blanket sanction-- helps/hurt sectors like information technology  in Iran?   In my opinion, had the U.S policy been to exert sanctions __due only to human rights violations__ (and targeted to violators, and not everything from civilian aircrafts to telcom like in this case)NO country or company could have dared to go  in and take their place.   However, with sanctions that is tied to some other political agenda/motives, then this is what you get.

BTW, with U.S santions on router equipment, how do you suggest readers eager to read your great views, are supposed to do that?   Remember, these equipments are used both by governments to filter and track people,  but also on a daily basis by people who are consumers of information.    Unless of course you are arguing, until Iran is liberated, there is no need for average Iranian to access internet?   I really like to hear your practiacal answer to this Fred.

BTW, on my last trip to Iran, I could hack my way around most of the primitvie filtering system and found out very cheap  software are avialable to access internet bypassing filters everywhere.

后大多数主要西方电讯公司被迫退出伊朗,中国巨华为快速填补这一空白。读到这里。

"UANI 赞扬华为结束与伊朗的新业务

虽然这是重要的一步,我们呼吁华为完全结束其业务与伊朗的残暴政权。鉴于电讯技术进行间谍活动的市民滥用政权的历史,有根本没有理由做这种生意,伊朗"。

由于进口电子追踪系统,有很多人失去了他们的生活和 (或) 全国各地监狱中被残酷对待的伊朗人。

所有这些公司提供工具进一步残酷伊朗人民,包括政府政策的强奸、 酷刑、 切割和谋杀的伊朗男子,妇女和儿童应公开它们是什么,不道德的公司。

这些不道德的实体的执行官们也应该意识到他们作为附件向所有井都记录和促进其产品和服务的公开已知的罪有个人法律责任。 並且,我們不需要您跟蹤在巴勒斯坦被佔領土人民的技術,我們有我們自己強姦、 殘害和強姦無辜人民的猶太技術

Here we go with the 'crying wolf' stories. Where in the world this 'sleeping beauty' blogger has been for the past 10 years while horrendous crimes were being committed by both American/Israeli para-militaries corporates (Blackwater for one) in the 2 neighboring countries of Iran, i.e. Afghanistan & Iraq?
