From 2008 to 2010 Rudi Bakthiar was the Director of Public Relations for PAAIA. Then she supposedly stepped down. Now we know that she was in fact “kicked out,” and why. Above is an image of a comment made by Rudi, along with a text of the comment in the event the image doesn’t load on your computer:
Rudi Bakhtiar Thank you Kevin. I understand your point very well. But if you only knew all the Iranian MEN here in the United States IN POSITIONS OF POWER who stay silent when our youth are beaten to death, raped, or hanged, in Iran….just so they can visit or do business with Iran….then you’d be ashamed to be an Iranian man. Thank you for being so proud of my work…it came at the support of very few Iranian men in positions of power. But amazing men like Dr. Hadi Ghaemi, the head of the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran…..In fact…I was kicked out of PAAIA because of my position on human rights. Some of the most powerful men in America are on the board of PAAIA. What does that tell you?
