[>>> Sign "Boycott Nokia Siemens" Petition]

WASHINGTON (Wall Street Journal) -- Lawmakers are seeking to crack down on foreign companies that provide spy technology to Iran with a bipartisan bill that would bar firms that provide sensitive technologies to Iran from doing business with the U.S. government. The legislation responds to a Wall Street Journal article this week that Iran had built an extensive monitoring system, including equipment provided by a joint venture of Finnish cellphone maker Nokia Corp. and German conglomerate Siemens AG.

Both companies do extensive business with U.S. agencies. Siemens has nearly 2,000 contracts with the U.S. government valued at a total of more than $250 million for 2009, according to a federal government spending Web site. It holds more than 300 contracts with the Pentagon alone, and many more with the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and Energy.

Nokia Siemens Networks, the joint venture, holds at least six contracts with the U.S. government totaling $5 million and covering communications and radiation detection, the site shows. Nokia Siemens Networks has since said its equipment is used for local voice traffic only, on fixed and mobile lines, and isn't used for any censoring of Internet traffic. A company spokesman said he declined to comment on the bill until he sees its contents. The bill, which Sens. Charles E. Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) plan to introduce Friday, aims to end all such crossover business with the U.S. and Iranian governments >>>

If Nokia-Siemens (and others) feel there is no risk in dealing with such an abhorrent regime as IRI then perhaps Iranians abroad can start a campaign to boycott Nokia-Siemens products - this may make them think twice about dealing with such criminal regimes.

Barclays Bank in the UK pulled out of the apartheid South Africa after a student boycott in British Universities of its banks in the UK. Now there's a thing to do - lets find all the amoral companies who are prepared to deal with this dictatorship and start some boycotts of their products

Governments seem to give worthless lip service in this situation. Therefore a boycot and exposing these companies is vital in the fight against tyranny. Following is the name of other companies who do business with Islamic regime:
Haliburton Products and Services LTD
JSC Defense systems (Russian arms manufacturer)
and more...

It is too late for such a action.
