Swiftvet author threatened with lawsuit
Kerry fund-raiser angered by new book on nuclear Iran

Picking up where he left off with best-seller "Unfit for Command," author Jerome Corsi once again is entering a maelstrom with the impending publication of a book that blows the whistle on U.S. politicians and activists allegedly on the take from Iran's radical Islamic regime.

New York Daily News columnist Lloyd Grove plans to report tomorrow that Iranian-American activist Hassan Nemazee, a figure Corsi criticizes in his upcoming WND Books title "Atomic Iran: How the Terrorist Regime Bought the Bomb and American Politicians," has threatened the author with a $10 million defamation lawsuit.

Corsi, a WND columnist, was the co-author with John O'Neill of "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry," regarded by many political analysts as a crucial factor in the 2004 election after it reached the top of the New York Times list.

Nemazee is a New York investment banker and former board member of the pro-Tehran lobby American-Iranian Council who served as Kerry's chief Iranian-American fund-raiser during the recent presidential campaign.

Corsi, whose book is scheduled for an April release, told WorldNetDaily the multi-million-dollar threat does not concern him.

"Why so little?" is his response, Corsi said, pointing out one of his sources already has been sued by Nemazee for $10 million, Aryo Pirouznia, leader of the Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran.

"I'll say the same thing as I said to John Kerry – I'll send him the Federal Express package and save him the trouble," Corsi said.

According to Grove, Nemazee is upset at allegedly being cast as an agent of the mullahs who control Iran.

Corsi insists the book does not make that claim.

"I don't have any proof of that," he said. "But he was part of the pro-mullah lobby who worked with the Iranian-American Council, a group whose policy was to establish relations with the mullahs."

During testimony last October in his suit against Pirouznia, Nemazee admitted Tehran's Islamic regime is sympathetic to terrorism and presented a threat to the world and the United States, essentially repudiating Kerry's position on Iran.

Despite top Iranian officials openly calling for the development of nuclear weapons and overwhelming confirmation from intelligence, Kerry had vowed that as president he would provide Tehran with nuclear fuel as long as it were used only for peaceful purposes.

Nemazee warned that Kerry should do nothing to lend credibility to the regime and that normalizing relations with Iran would be a mistake.

However, the Iranian-American said he could not explain the inconsistency of having been a board member of a group on record in support of normalizing relations with Tehran.

Corsi said he still plans to take up residence in Boston this spring as the first step of a plan to challenge Kerry for his Senate seat in 2008.

He acknowledges an issue likely to come up amid publicity for the book and his political aspirations is allegations made by opponents last year of bigotry against Catholics, the pope and Muslims, based on some of his posts to the Internet site FreeRepublic.com.

Corsi insists he wrote the posts only to be satirical and provocative.

"I apologize to anyone who took them as a direct expression of my beliefs," he said.

Corsi emphasized he's a Catholic who has created a mutual fund for Israel and now is establishing a group led by two Muslims, called the Iran Freedom Foundation.

"I'm reaching out to Christians, Muslims and Jews to stop these criminal mullahs who have hijacked Islam and stolen a good country," he said.

He is a Catholic who posted brief, sarcastic and irreverent comments about the Pope, the priest abuse scandal, and the future of the Church. There was nothing bigoted about it, but it was used absurdly by the Clinton/Kerry attack teams. Keep in mind that his attackers were left wing zealots who have zero respect for the Pope or the Church. It was just their typical effort to shout down the Swiftvets.

"With the reconstruction of Iraq under way and the distraction of the U.S. presidential election behind us, focus will once again turn to a gathering threat—The Islamic Republic of Iran.

A charter member of the "axis of evil," this rogue terrorist state and the mullahs who govern it are on a collision course with American and European governments that seek to end its development of nuclear weapons. The influence of Iran cannot be discounted, however, because it has perfected the art of oil price manipulation in order to fund its nuclear endeavors, terrorist activities, and strategic contributions to key U.S. politicians who, in turn, work diligently at normalizing diplomatic and trade relations between the two nations.

In "Atomic Iran," Jerome Corsi, co-author of the best-selling "Unfit for Command," uncovers the true intentions and practices of the Iranian regime and gives light to the aid and comfort being supplied by some key U.S. politicians.

Uncovered is a web of pro-Iranian financiers who make significant campaign contributions to political leaders who affect U.S. trade policy towards Iran and are able to work at normalizing diplomatic relations, thereby legitimizing the rogue republic. This poses an immediate security threat to the United States. It allows the regime to take advantage of relaxations in the Patriot Act to begin importing terrorists under the disguise of diplomatic personnel.

Also revealed is the manipulation of world oil prices by Iran. Its restriction of supply has the dual effect of hindering the growth of world economies and increasing revenue for Iran, which is then used to fund international terrorism and its own deadly pursuits. Dr. Corsi warns that a nuclear Iran would devastate the Middle East through its tyrannical policies and threats and would have a significant impact on the world by using its control of 40 percent of the global oil supply to hold nations hostage with oil prices rising to over $100 and even $200 per barrel."

I'm working with Dr. Corsi on a new organization that will, among other things, continue the investigation into the Iranian mullahs influence in the U.S. that Jerry has begun in "Atomic Iran." This book is going to get a lot of attention.

If you'd like to be pinged occasionally to articles on this topic, just sit tight. If not, please let me know by freepmail.

I remember Albright babbling on about how wrong Bush's approach was and how we should continue to work with Iran...she saw some real progress (I guess as she did with North Korea). Somehow, though, I don't see her on the take. She strikes me more as a woman taken by both enemies and friends, which is what I'm sure Clinton found most appealing about her.

Something tells me Corsi has all of i's dotted and t's crossed and it's an iron clad win for him even in front of the 8th Circus.

More on the American Leftists Unholy Alliance:

***********************************************

Unholy Alliance
by David Horowitz
Regnery Publishing, Inc.; ISBN: 089526076X
Hardcover - 256 pages (September 2004)


In this tour de force on the most important issue of our time, David Horowitz, confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the “Great Satan” with America’s radical Islamic enemies. This Left, which once made common cause with Communists, has now joined forces with radical Islam in attacking America’s defenses at home and its policies abroad. From their positions of influence in the university and media culture, leftists have defined America as the “root cause” of the attacks against it. In a remarkable exploration of the “Mind of the Left,” Horowitz traces the evolution of American radicalism from its Communist past to its “anti-war” present. He then shows how this Left was able to turn the Democratic Party presidential campaign around and reshape its views on the War on Terror.

Horowitz’s Unholy Alliance, writes John Haynes, the noted historian of American Communism, “is an insightful, brilliant examination of the mental world of the radical left. Horowitz shows how today’s radicals, unwilling to reflect on the internal flaws that destroyed Marxism-Leninism from within, have embraced an all-consuming nihilism in its place. This has led them to a hatred of American institutions and a solidarity with Islamic terrorists that makes the radical left more properly regarded as dangerous than loony.”

Unholy Alliance is an eye-opening book that should unsettle conventional assumptions and reveals why intellectuals and political leaders who applaud Michael Moore are no laughing matter. As Harvey Klehr, author of Venona: Decoding Soviet Espionage in America, writes, “The world Communist movement may be moribund, but its habits of mind and ideological fantasies have not disappeared. This is a fascinating and depressing account.”

Namazee is a terrorist, so he fits right in with the anti-American, pro-terrorist Kerry organization.

A lot of are thrilled that Mr. Corsi is going to run against Kerry. In fact he just might have a hearty welcoming crowd waiting for his arrival to the state, were folks to know when it was to be. Put a bug in his ear as to an easy way to get support, he will find knowing there is a state OUTSIDE of the Boston area! A lot of conservatives too.
