NIAC Profiteering from Deceit

Balatarin

 

Based in Britain, Potkin Azarmehr is a tireless Iranian democracy advocate with special disdain for all the enablers of the Messianic Islamist Rapist Republic.

He has just posted an investigative report on the unfortunate death of the 15 year old Manoucher Esmaili-Liuis, the hemophiliac Iranian teenager whose death was used by all sorts of lovelies including NIAC lobby to erroneously blame sanctions which has begun to squeeze the Iranian murdering Islamist Rapists.

It is true, “you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”

Why isn't NIAC condemning the murderous regime which is massacring Iranians. Why doesn't Trita Parsi ever print stories about the forced exile of millions of Iranians. Why such staunch lobbying for the criminal ayatollahs and their goons who have terrorized Iranians in the past three and a half decades?

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

He's either friends with Obama & Kerry or friends with Romney & co. America Loves the IRI and that's the end of it. No one else matters.

Sorry Trita, that dog don't hunt!
All the "Naneh Man Gharibam" (Mama, I am a stranger!) is not going to sway anyone's opinion that the responsibility for the well-being of the Iranian people rests with the Regime and not the US and the west.
And if the Regime and its lobbyists and followers believe that the US has to take charge in Iran and provide food and medicine, then get out of the way and let somebody else do it! Is that so hard to understand?

Excerpt from the article by Potkin:Not only medicines are excluded from the Iran sanctions list but the German government has even made special provisions for banking transactions for medicine exports to Iran, this was even published in Iranian dailies. On top of all of the above, it was only two years ago that amidst much pomp and ceremony, Islamic Republic declared that Iran has become self-sufficient in producing haemophiliac drugs - one of the rare good news that has recently come from Iran. Another Iranian website only today, has published a story on the satisfactory situation of the Haemophiliac medicines."
Times investigations suggest that the unfortunate Iranian teenager, Manoucher Esmaili-Liuisi did not die because the hospital could not provide his medicine as a result of the sanctions against Iran, but because the unfortunate teenager suffered a cut during a hiking accident and he was too far from the nearest hospital in Dezful to be saved.

NIAC have also come up with an even more ridiculous story to emotionally blackmail Iranian-Americans. NIAC's gullible and naive supporters are not informed by NIAC about the real reasons for the medicine crisis in Iran, i.e. the corruption and mismanagement but are told that it is the sanctions which are killing innocent Iranians."
This story further discredit NIAC and their operatives. Why resort to lies and exploitation of the dead to convince people that sanctions are bad for Iranians?

Has NIAC retracted their original version of the story about Manoucher Esmaili-Liuisi, now that more details and real reasons of his death are known? If not , why not? and when are they going to do it? If they made a mistake and reported what some news sources had printed, the right thing to do for any honorable organization would be to retract/correct their original story and return any money that they made (as the result of false story) to the donors.

The false IV-fluid story: Excerpt:

"In an appeal for more donations from these out of touch Iranian ex-pats, NIAC have come up with a story of an unnamed "aunt of an American Iranian" who was taken to hospital and needed IV fluid but the hospital had run out of IV fluid and couldn't buy any more because of the bad bad sanctions. NIAC claimed he unnamed "aunt of an American Iranian" was instead given a water drip and died as a result. So what can the super wealthy out of touch Iranian ex-pats living in America do to help their compatriots in Iran? Send IV fluids and medicine to them? No! Send money to NIAC!

I personally talked to at least ten hospitals throughout Iran and enquired about the possibility of something like this happening. All ten without exception laughed at me and confronted me with the question "Do you think we import IV fluid from the West? It is one of the most basic things we produce and even if it is badly required in remote parts; at a minimum we can produce a saline solution with common salt".

How sad is it that some people donate their hard earned money to this man?""

I personally wish all the wealth in the world so he doesn't have to stoop so low. It's embarrassing not just for him but for all Iranians he supposedly represents.

IV fluids:

I must say I was shocked when I got the email from Trita Parsi with his IV fluid fairy tale of an aunt of an Iranian American. The story sounds like a badly written comedy for anyone with medical knowledge. Give me a break. Saline is a salt water solutions. there is no shortage of salt in Iran, and no shortage of salt water.
How out of touch is Trita. Why does NIAC work just to antagonize AIPAC a much more powerful entity.
Iranian-Americans are intereted in regime change. Anyone that lobbies for anything less is a direct or indirect agent of the Islamic regime.

Time for organization of a true representative of Iranian Americans and freedom loving Iranians in the homeland.

Fred, your logic is like religious extremists. Just like them your ideology is not based on logic or facts, just some innuendos.

I read in comments field in iranian.com some days ago, one of the NIAC bashers (maybe you??) was saying that NIAC is getting paid from IRI so why do Trita asking for our money?

You yourself did say that he needs the money since he lost the case against Daei.

Don't you see some paradox in your statements? If NIAC is paid by IRI how come Daei said in the court that he did unknowingly make the false statement and is prohibited from repeating it and how come you think NIAC need our money to pay for the fine?

I hope you study logic a bit and see that you cannot prove your case like that. You need to prove your case with numbers and facts. Innuendos are facts for regimes like IRI to send innocents to Evin or death squads.

I've told you once before, and this will be the last time I respond to your nonsensical comments.
Taking to account facts is good for you, ignoring them does you no good.
Try truth for a change, it shall set you free!

take care.

What facts are that? Show us *unbiased* sources with numbers, dates and so one.

And also a question how come Daei could not make it stick if they are real facts?

You need to see more people than relatives and friends to know what Iranian people want. I have talked to people on the street and there are many different opinions. Like taxi driver in Isfahan who thought Ahmadinejad is doing people service and many people who said that IRI should not give up nuclear energy or even bomb and that west use this as excuse. Or another guy in Mashhad who was sure that Ahmadinejad won the election and that reformists are no good for country. Another Taxi driver in Mashhad wanted that IRI did negotiate since life was getting hard for people. And of course people who were like you say. My own aunts husband voted for Ahmadinejad since he raised retirement payment some years ago, although he is not pro IRI or even believer.

The issue is that since there are no polling done in Iran it is difficult to know how big these groups are.

And again stop this character murder tactics, come with facts and stop spreading rumors that someone has made up. NIAC stance is that it is Iranian peoples will that should show the way. If we want to have better country there is no easy way.

I am not sure what you are referring. Polling was done by independent pollsters right after the rigged 2009 election and the majority of the people are Anti Islamic and Anti Government.

I think from the people's respond right after election when 3 millions suddenly showed up on the streets clearly shows the animosity, hatred towards the regime.

But people are scared and they have all the rights to be scared.

This Apartheid Islamic Fascist Regime is Brutal. It kills and murders people instantly. The elements who carry the murder are Palestinians or Lebanese and a group of Bacheh koskesh Hezbolahi.

No independent polling is allowed in Iran. If you are referring the Israeli phone poll I am not sure you can call it independent.

Israeli Phone call - another paranoid Islamic fascists...Israel doesn't give a damn about Iran -- Israel rather have Iran stay Islamic Fascists than Democratic...

I think your paranoia falls in line with the Islamic fascist attitude and principles.

99% of Iranians want this Islamic Fascist Racist Apartheid Regime GONE

the 1% like you are just have to count days to vanish from Iran

choghok

choghok Your enemie's enemy is necessarily not a friend.

Could you at least read the news before you start discussing issues here. An Israeli institution made phone calls to Iranians after the election as a way to measure the level of democratic readiness and it then gave out the result so the result was published worldwide. If you do not know about it the least you can do is to ask.

Also it does not matter what 99% of Iranians are against. A majority of Iranians were against Pahlavis and it brought us IRI. What matters is what a majority of Iranians are for, and reading many comments on Iranian.com it looks like we are for quick judging, calling each other names, back stabbing, character murder. When IRI does the same we say it is because of Islam and Arabs, and we are much better ourselves. Are we really?

Dear Liberated,
Nothing should be shocking when it comes to Trita Parsi and the cunning wiles he employs to deceive Iranians in diaspora. NIAC lobby is hard at work trying to save the ruthless regime of the ayatollahs and their goons in Tehran. If Trita Parsi were smart, he would have known by now that nothing can save the regime.

This is what is important. We Iranians need to learn not to be sheeps and follow people, individuals and symbols or emblems. We have the tendency to exaggerate and make mountains out of people to a point that we have Fuhrers like Hitler but not like Mandela.
NIAC is a lobbyist group. You have to admit they are successful. Who they lobby for it has not been established yet? But one thing is true that they don't lobby for Iranians.
Most of their story had been about Palestinian and Palestinian causes during the Israel attack.
One commentator replied back to me that NIAC doesn't want to get politically involved and that is not true at all.
NIAC does advocate strongly for the Palestinian cause. But it falls short when it comes to advocate for the rights of Iranian people.
The fact that our Fascist Apartheid regime is pro ARAB and supports the Arab causes such as Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian terrorists groups is the core of their existence.
An Arab state and an Arab regime against the Iranian people and Iranian nation.
NIAC is their voice and advocate
