I posted this comment on Trita Parsi's recent blog. I'm also posting it here as a blog in case he decides to delete the comment and block me from the thread. Here's the comment:
The irony here is, Mr. Parsi, that you speak of those who try to silence you, when you're the person who deletes and blocks those who post comments that are critical of your organization. see below, and the deleted comment of Rozbeh Gilani. Unless the comment contained a personal attack against you (personally) or profanity, why did you delete it and block the user? Care to explain? An explanation will help boost your credibility and the credibility of your organization.
Also, can you please explain why you include those email addresses (such as mine that you obtained from Iranian.com) as "subscribers" and supporters of your organization?
Incidentally, I will go ahead and blog this comment in case you feel like deleting and blocking me as well.
I would also like to ask two other questions of Mr. Parsi:
1) Where do you stand on the imminent execution of Behrouz Alkhani, the Iranian political prisoner? Please be specific. We do not want a general answer that you're opposed to all human rights violations anywhere in the world.
2) Has Houshang Amirahmadi, the person who helped establish your organization, and the person who brought you from Sweden and made you the head of NIAC, ever received funds from the Islamic Republic of Iran for various activties, including seminars, etc.?
