More NIAC (Explosive: Direct Links Between Soros and Iranian Regime Front Group)
Commentary ^ | 11/13/2009 | Jennifer Rubin

Posted on 11/13/2009 3:27:49 PM PST by mojito

Ben Smith, following on Eli Lake’s blockbuster story, has a must-read post on the emerging scandal concerning the mullahs’ favorite front group, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). The issues go far beyond whether NIAC has been illegally operating without registering as a foreign agent, and have ensnared NIAC’s close ally, none other than J Street.

First, NIAC is a Soros-backed group. Soros is of course the money behind MoveOn.org and got J Street up and running. He is also paying “the $90,000 annual salary of the NIAC staffer, Patrick Disney.” The Left’s moneyman is plainly in the mullah’s corner.

Second, Smith details NIAC’s ongoing meetings and elaborate plans to scuttle the appointment of Middle East adviser Dennis Ross. And NIAC has plenty of company:

The minutes of a series of meetings including NIAC and other coalition members offer a glimpse of the strategy and tactics involved in the push for a rapprochement with the Islamic Republic, from an attempt to undermine the appointment of Dennis Ross as Iran envoy to a planned “Send Hillary to Iran” campaign.

The minutes include almost no mention of a human rights agenda inside Iran, which has more recently been on NIAC’s agenda. Participants in the discussions include NIAC as well as the liberal Jewish group J Street, anti-war groups like Peace Action and the American Friends Service Committee, and the business lobby that opposes Iran sanctions, USA*Engage.

This is curious indeed given J Street’s ostensible support for the Obama administration. Publicly running interference and quietly conspiring with the mullahs’ legmen in the U.S. to get Ross dumped.

Yet another example where this Republic is being undermined by elements within.

That would help explain a lot of the vile hatred been going on for the last several years, everywhere from the political scene, to movies to commercials.

I read for awhile, and my head just hurts.

Can someone summarize this in a sentence? Maybe two?

Why can’t anyone write anymore?

The author probably has a point, but they just don’t get to it.

1. Turned in rich Jews to the Nazis
2. Sponsors groups of a country now striving to attack Israel with nukes

Even on the arthropod level this is....low.

I know this is off the wall, but saw a marathon of the Jericho TV series today, and that head guy running the country in the show reminded me of Soros. . .

Here's an excerpt and a link to an earlier post that will make the post above more sensible:

http://www.commentarymagazine.com/blogs/index.php/rubin/165261

“Eli Lake has a blockbuster story in the Washington Times concerning the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), which made its name as a reliable apologist for the mullahs and has consistently advocated lifting sanctions against the Iranian regime. (Some background is here and here.) NIAC, according to Lake’s report, worked hard to create a media storm over Obama Middle East adviser Dennis Ross, fearing he would advocate a tougher line against the mullahs. Moreover, it turns out NIAC hasn’t played by the rules:

Law enforcement experts who reviewed some of the documents, which were made available to The Times by the defendant in the suit, say e-mails between Mr. Parsi and Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations at the time, Javad Zarif — and an internal review of the Lobbying Disclosure Act — offer evidence that the group has operated as an undeclared lobby and may be guilty of violating tax laws, the Foreign Agents Registration Act and lobbying disclosure laws.

Neither Mr. Parsi nor anyone else at NIAC has registered as a lobbyist or filed papers with the Justice Department as a local agent of the Iranian government or Iranian companies. … Mr. Parsi defended his decision to organize NIAC as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and declare on tax forms that his group does not engage in lobbying — a status that enables donors to deduct contributions on their taxes.”

Does anyone know the history of how and why soros is in the US?
My assumption is that he was let in by klintoon and was smart enough to laylow during W’s Admin.

Obama and Soros are just acquaintances. He's just a guy who lives in the neighborhood.

Move along please. Nothing to see here.
