The Israel Lobby, the Neocons, and the Iranian-American Community / Dr Sahimi
21-Nov-2009 (4 comments)

Ever since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected Iran’s president in June 2005 and began using strong rhetoric against Israel, the neoconservatives and the Israel lobby have been trying to provoke a war against Iran, or at the very least persuade the United States and the international community to impose crippling sanctions on Iran. Their efforts have been multi-pronged, ranging from spreading exaggerations, half truths, and even outright lies about Iran’s nuclear program, to planting anti-Iran articles in the mainstream media, and pressuring the Congress to pass tough Resolutions for sanctions against Iran. The campaign has spread to cyberspace. Every popular Iranian website (such as has some bloggers who strongly advocate crippling sanctions and even war with Iran, and support Israel’s position.[....]
In an interview with Persian radio in Los Angeles in 2007, Daioleslam attacked Parsi, and again accused him of being a lobbyist for the Islamic Republic. It was that interview that finally prompted the NIAC and Parsi to file a lawsuit against Daioleslam.
Make no mistake. The campaign against NIAC and Parsi by the Israel lobby and the neocons, aided by Iranian monarchists and the MKO, is in fact a campaign to silent anyone and any group that opposes crippling sanctions and eventually war with Iran.

The second group — a very small but highly vocal minority — is made mostly of the monarchists and supporters and sympathizers of the MKO. It has considerable economic power, aided by many wealthy Iranian Jews that are strongly pro-monarchy and support Reza Pahlavi, the Shah’s son and the monarchists’ titular head.

The writer hits the bulls eye right here at

Is it any wonder who are these charactors; Kashani, Fred, IranFirst and Anonymous111.2 among others here? Further, the MKO sympathizer Payam and the Monarchist Kadivar!
