Great news...Thank you Dr. Parsi! 

Nice gesture...I hope also that it means that a link to SCE is going to be added on the NIAC site and meaningful donations would follow the signatures!

To be honest, until now, I wasn't sure what to think of you, because of all the rumors. But I'm happy that you are trying to reach to the rest of us --the ordinary Iranian community in Diaspora -- through a simple signature, which shows a new side of you: the human side.

Dr Parsi is a very intelligent young Iranian who is respected by a great number of people, Iranians and non-Iranians, and has proven himsef credible worldwide. I am glad that he's also on board with SCE campaign.

Congratulations and Good luck
