Iranian banks illegally shifted billions of dollars through American financial institutions in recent years, and the authorities suspect some of the money may have been used to finance Iranian nuclear and missile programs.Details of the illicit transfers came to light on Friday when the New York State and U.S. authorities announced that a large British bank had agreed to pay $350 million to settle accusations that it had helped the Iranian banks hide the transactions.

What Has NIAC and Trita Parsi got to say regarding this ? Maybe it is less shocking to them than the Alledged 75 $ Million voted by the US congress for aiding the Iranian Opposition ?

No I am suggesting that They Were Wrong to Treat the Opposition

by Darius Kadivar on

with a pronounced pride and godlike self-sufficiency as if the Opposition is Corrupt But the Reformists in Iran are Pure Angels.

Why A Double Standard ? NIAC which gives itself the Right to Speak as a grass Root Organization in the Name of an Iranian American Community at Large ridden from their homeland by the very people running our country today and gives itself the Moral Right to judge and vilify the Iranian Opposition at large by putting them in the same basket that is by equating the MKO and the Democratic Oppostion be it the Constitutional Monarchists or Secular Republicans or the National Front ? 

You Disagree well then ask Bakhtiar's Family or

Fereydoune Farrokhzad's Family if they are ready to Forgive the IRI:

Or if They Put the Iranian Leadership ( including the Reformists) on an equal Balance as Any Person in the Iranian Opposition ?

I hope that they are realizing their Misjudgment today. I believe that they have since in recent months they have been much more outspoken about the Abuses in Regard to Human Rights in Iran.

From this point of View NIAC Has EVOLVED In Comparison to AIC ( whose Founder Houshang AmirAhmadi went as Far as to Shake Hands with Ahmadinejad)

Only Imbeciles Don't Change and I don't think Trita Parsi is An Imbecile ...
