I was away for a few days, and behold upon returning, I now find an American idiot who is defending an IRI lobby! Next thing, we will find a right wing Israeli defending Ahmadinjad...

Does NIAC take us for idiots?

Trita Parsi and NIAC are the only sensible advocates for a peaceful resolution of U.S. - Iranian enmity, and an eventual resumption of cordial diplomatic relations. 

This of course is not what the warmongering Zionist lobby wants, and they are working 24/7 to discredit Mr. Parsi, with the help of some of their disgruntled Iranian-American stooges, like Hassan Daioleslam.  Daioleslam, from his articles in the American Chronicle, is thorougly ignorant of nuclear issues.  Daiolislam has been out of Iran for so long that he has apparently forgotten the Persian language, as in one of his articles he he repeats the famously mistranslated October 25, 2005 statements by President Ahmadinejad that "Israel must be wiped off the map." 

Just a quick Farsi lesson from an American for the other Iranian-Americans who also forgot their Farsi language:   the full quote by Ahmadinejad, translated directly to English:    "The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time".    Word by word translation:  Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from).   This is a vastly significant distinction, as one cannot wipe a regime off the map. Ahmadinejad does not even refer to Israel by name, he instead uses the specific phrase "rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods" (regime occupying Jerusalem). 

So this raises the question.. what exactly did he want "wiped from the map"? The answer is: nothing. That's because the word "map" was never used. The Persian word for map, "nagsheh", is not contained anywhere in his original farsi quote, or, for that matter, anywhere in his entire speech. Nor was the western phrase "wipe out" ever said. Yet we are led to believe that Iran's President threatened to "wipe Israel off the map", despite never having uttered the words "map", "wipe out" or even "Israel".

As for the idiotic and slanderous article by neo-con-man Eli Lake in the November 13, 2009 Washington Times, it should be noted that despite thousands of documents leaked by Daiolislam to Lake, the latter is unable to show any evidence of a financial relationship between NIAC and the Iranian government.   It’s also worth noting that the question of whether NIAC engages in lobbying is separate from the question of whether it engages in lobbying on behalf of the Iranian government.  Lake, who conflates the two questions, provides little evidence for the former and even less for the latter.

Two lawyers who read some of the same documents (on which Lake's allegations are founded) said they did not provide enough evidence to conclude that Mr. Parsi was acting as a foreign agent.

I'm disappointed that such criticism is not directed at Junior Shah Pahlavi and his phony concern for democracy in Iran, or the U.S. support for terrorist groups Mojahedin-e Khalq and Jundallah. 

My advice, lay off Trita Parsi and the NIAC, or better yet - join their efforts to stop another an even stupider war than the current ones the U.S. is waging in Iraq and Afghanistan.  By working with Mr. Parsi and NIAC to bring about a rapprochement between the U.S. and Iran, Iranian-Americans (as well as American-Americans) will find it much easier to visit Iran. 

Lastly, Iranian-Americans, why is it that an American has to log into to correct mistranlated Farsi?  While your at it supporting NIAC, ask them to help you re-learn the Persian language...
