|Trita Parsi b: July 21, 1974, founder of National Iranian American Council or NIAC. who recieved his education from Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Uppsala University, Johns Hopkins University. Much of his idealism was formed from his parents, Iranian schooling and then Sweden before coming to Johns Hopkins U. At about age 28 he was forming NIAC, so didn't waste any time. |

It came about with Trita Parsi who was born in Iran . He moved to the USA from Sweden in 2001 and had left Iran before the revolution there took place. His main focus, he decided, was to put an end to the sanctions which was hurting the economy in Iran. As it turns out, the sanctions are what brought Iran finally to the table to talk about their nuclear goals. It was the carrot on the stick that our government has given up so quickly before we see how Iran is behaving.
The White House looks upon NIAC as supporters only. They have managed to put Iran supporters into key staff Iran-related government posts.

NAIC's accomplishments have been in making good contacts here and in Iran. The US district Court for the District of Columbia said in 2012 about NIAC, that they found NIAC wasn't registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, not inconsistent with the idea that Parsi was first and foremost an advocate for the regime. Parsi believed that what stood between US-Iran trade and dialogue, said, Dai, was of course, AIPAC. (In 2008, Parsi had sued Dai, and had claimed that he had defamed them in a series of articles and blog posts claiming that they had secretly lobbied on behalf of the Iranian regime in the United States.)
Dai claimed that NIAC had waged a crusade against AIPAC. In 2004, Parsi gave a talk to European ambassadors saying that Israel and AIPAC stood between better relations between the USA and Iran. This had turned into his dissertation at Johns Hopkins and later was found in his 2007 book, TREACHEROUS ALLIANCE; THE SECRET DEALINGS OF ISRAEL, IRAN, AND THE US.
Parsi had no trouble finding like thinkers of his ideas. NIAC's financial statement shows the majority of their money comes from community support, and a portion from foundations like The Ploughshares Fund, who spent a lot of money to influence US policy towards Iran, in fact, millions of dollars, according to Michael Rubin, writing in Commentary, to pro-administration groups to support the Iran deal in Vienna. Their webpage advertises as if they are the very answer to nuclear bombing attacks. NIAC also had J Street on their side who made the case to journalists and other intellectuals slow to buy into this agreement. It seemed too easy to sell the idea that Israel was a big problem for the United States.
Parsi, "In an effort to soften the image of Iranian regime and prove that Iran has changed its position toward Israel, Parsi claimed that under President Rouhani, Iran’s position on Holocaust has changed: “Iran has gone from questioning the Holocaust under the former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to tweeting Rosh Hashana blessings under Rouhani.” He commented that the Iranian government had gone soft and quiet in complaining about Israel's treatment of Gazans. (I am amazed at how they are able to completely skip over the fact that Gazans were shelling Israel constantly).
The President has led a brutal campaign against Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, and the pro-Israel community. Senator Chuck Schumer, has been accused of dual loyalty for being against the Iran deal after much reading, thought and consideration. Parsi has also let go with some anti-Israel statements, followed with his nasty comments. He accused the Associated Press to have printed an Israeli forgery of an IAEA agreement with Iran that allowed the Israeli Republic to self-inspect its Parchin military base. Yes, I've read about it, and it's been on the web in a million places that this is going to take place: Self Inspection!!! Good for AP reporters and others on Twitter to challenge Parsi's unfounded allegation slandering a trusted Western news source.
" NIAC lost defamation lawsuit and was punished for legal abuses)" Some of these documents show that NIAC defrauded IRS, lied to the court, defrauded NED Congressional funds, coordinated its lobby with Iranian ambassador to the UN and collaborated with two individuals named by US Congressional report as the agents of the Iranian intelligence ministry. The Iran Lobby backed down. However, Parsi put his obsession with blaming Israel and Jewish power loudly to be known. Parsi has been sending progress reports to Atieh Company in Tehran. Atieh paid Trita Parsi for his work. Parsi continued to send reports about his lobby activities to Atieh director in Tehran.
