Who is attacking Trita Parsi?


Who is attacking Trita Parsi?
by Q

The email is part of the expose by Foreign Policy magazine.

Here Hassan Daioleslam admits to a campaign of character assassination and defamation on Trita Parsi and sells it to known pro-War conservative Ken Timmerman, so he can use it against Obama and Clinton!

Timmerman is the author of "The coming nuclear showdown with Iran", who predicted that Iran will be testing a nuclear weapon by the end of the year in 2006. He also writes for such bastions of objective journalism as "NewsMax".

Read all about him here:

I don't know who is using who anymore. Maybe mutual to some degree: Hassan Dai and his MEK connections using Neocons to get rid of the only credible Iranian voice in Washington by "destroying" Parsi, or Neocons like Timmerman using Dai "Chalabi style" so they can push for a war with Iran. Both sides have ties to Israel. But the law of the jungle says that the more powerful (Neocons) are probably running the show.

Update 11/16/2009 : As promised I will include some of the more substantive comments made by visitors. Thanks Everyone for your participation.

Why they hate Parsi you may ask?
by Mola Nasredeen on Mon Nov 16, 2009 08:50 AM PST

Because he asks the right questions from the right people, the ones who are residing in the centers of power.

And he lets them know immediately that he's nobody's fool, you can't fool Mr parsi. He stands his own ground while coalition building. He with the help of NIAC advanced the interests of the Iranian American Community on civic, cultural and political issues

Trita Parsi and NIAC supplied the resources, knowledge and tools to enable civic participation and informed decision making. They provided the infrastructure for bridge-building across the network of Iranian American organizations and the peoples of America and Iran.

In 2008, NIAC defeated a Congressional resolution that would have paved the way for a US-Iran war.

-- In 2009, NIAC launched a successful campaign seeking a retraction from California Representative Jane Harman, whose controversial statement regarding the "separation" of Iran's ethnic groups offended many. In response to NIAC's efforts, Rep. Harman quickly retracted her comment and expressed regret for the concern it caused.

-- NIAC successfully compelled the National Geographic Society to correct their 8th edition maps to read "Persian Gulf" instead of "Arabian Gulf."

-- NIAC successfully challenged Monster.com's discrimination against Iranian Americans, compelling the company to give Iranian Americans a fair chance to compete in the job market.

-- NIAC sought and obtained an apology from MSNBC's Don Imus for a derogatory comment he made in 2004 about an Iranian airliner crash that killed 43 passengers.

-- NIAC worked with writer/director Wayne Kramer and the Weinstein Company to make changes to the screenplay for Crossing Over (2007). The film originally depicted Iranian Americans committing an "honor killing." Had the script not changed, the movie would have had similar effects for the Iranian-American community as the film Not Without My Daughter (1991)

--NIAC has registered thousands of Iranian-American voters.

--NIAC published the first-ever IranCensus, showing the make-up of our community.

There are those in the center of power who want to turn the cold war between US and Iran into a military war and they hate NIAC and Trita Parsi while Iranian Americans who lived during US Hostage Crisis hate to re-live that period.


Update. Dai was confronted about his false allegations and his personal connections to MEK on Persian TV.

Al Gore and the Chinese Support

by ahmad_ on

During the presidential election of 2000 Al Gore was accused of having financial support from the Chinese Government. Did anyone check to see if all those lobbyists were Naturalized American or not ?

And with Joe Lie Berman running as VP for democrats one day and the republicans the next day, does anyone question which side is he supporting?

the nationality I mean.

Once again I have to remind everyone why didn't Iranian American thought of such a law suit long ago and try to keep what belongs to Iranians in the hands of Iranians?



Q, who gives a crap

by Faramarz_Fateh on

Who gives a crap about Trita Parsi and for that matter all the other asswipes in the email.

How does anyone know if the emails wasn't made up with photoshop by you or another Islamist loser?



by Fred on

One of the things I am worried about, despite what many might think my animosity with NIAC lobby does not extend to individual persons, has nothing to do with the FARA, Foreign Agents Registration Act.

From what Trita Parsi would say during his interviews, I was under the impression that he is a naturalized American. My understanding is for non Americans presenting themselves as Americans is grounds for legal action by the federal government.  

And there are a lot of other things that the Patriot Act has made possible that are truly scary, a simple misdemeanor shoplifting conviction can have adverse effect on immigration status of the person let alone more serious Federal charges.



haha! I see the clown posse is on full patrol

by Q on

I suspect it's because this legal finding hurts so much that it must be covered up and dismissing with angry nonsense from the usual suspects. The judge is politely calling Dai a liar.

"The "defendant parses his statements too finely," the judgment read, when looking at Daoileslam's broad definition of what constitutes a "lobbyist." "The 'sting of the charge' is not, as defendant would have it, that plaintiffs are lobbyists. Nor does the assertion that plaintiff's goals align with the Iranian government's goals carry real bite."

The "defendant's defense of truth, at this stage of the proceedings, must fail," the judgment concluded at another point.

This material is public record and not supplied by any "lobby". What's your excuse this time, Fred? Let me guess, this isn't "serious" all of a sudden!


Parsi is not a credible Voice in DC

by seannewyork on

How can he be an Iran expert without spending time in Iran.  Maybe he has been there 1 or 2 times.

 Also, isnt it shady that a SwedIranian would move to the US to start an organization like NIAC.  Why not start NISC, why come to the US. 

 This is very grave for him he could look at fines, jail time, or deportation.  All the NIAC people I know are bailing asap, dont want to be associated with him.

  Either way there are grave legal ramifications, including possible criminal charges for violation of number of federal laws. This is not a simple civil action, it is serious stuff. 

You are right. The US doesn't even have diplomatic relations with Iran, so for a non-American Iranian national to be lobbying on behalf of the IRI in the US seems like it must be in violation of something or other. I'm not a lawyer but if that isn't illegal, it damn well should be!


Serious stuff

by Fred on

The email is part of the expose by Foreign Policy magazine.”

 No it is not. It is part of pro NIAC lobby campaign with the material having been supplied by NIAC lobby, the same as Time’s article used material from Dai  to paint NIAC lobby in a bad light.

The legal action which NIAC lobby and its lifetime president jointly brought against Dai has to do with the validity of the defendant’s claim that NIAC lobby acting as an unregistered lobby for the Islamist Rapists Republic.

Once the preliminary legal stuff has been taken care of and parties get to present their cases to the court, the decision will prove that one way or the other. 

  Either way there are grave legal ramifications, including possible criminal charges for violation of number of federal laws. This is not a simple civil action, it is serious stuff.  



he's right on....

by shushtari on
