Ms. Anna Jardfelt;

Drottning Kristinas Vägen 37
Stockholm

Dear Ms. Anna Jardfelt;

We, the undersigned, express grave concern regarding the Utrikespolitiska institutet ‹s hosting of Trita Parsi to speak on “ USA and Iran: Angerepp, Avskrächning eller avspänning?” scheduled for May 9th, 2012. While we appreciate the institute’s efforts to promote greater understanding of world issues by organizing various events, the Iranian- American community, and the Iranian Swedish community considers Trita Parsi of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) an intellectually dishonest regime apologist and lobbyist that serves as the mouth piece for the mullahs. Parsi contributes to the regime’s agenda and serves the interests of those in power in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

For over three decades, various governments have used dialogue and diplomacy with the regime in Iran to no avail, starting with the administration of President Jimmy Carter, who did everything possible to assure their new regime of American friendship and in the process failed miserably. Since that time, the more world governments have tried to engage the regime’s leaders, the more belligerent, emboldened and abusive the regime has become. This has not been limited to their communication with the outside world but extended to the repression of their own people, as documented by Amnesty International.

Much of what drives Iranian politics and decision-making is a hatred of the West. The Iranian regime demonizes the U.S. as the ‘Great Satan’ repeatedly and intentionally and arrogantly denies the Holocaust, pledges to wipe Israel off the map and threatens to overthrow or dominate America’s Persian Gulf allies. Moreover, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stated his belief that the mission of Iran is to prepare the way for the imminent return of the ‘Hidden Imam’, whose reemergence will be preceded by a period of chaos and war. Nuclear weapons would give Iran the ability to realize this radical vision.
The Islamic regime’s apologists such as NIAC deceptively portray the Islamic government in Iran as a pragmatic and rational entity. They suggest that dialogue and diplomacy are the best way to deal with Iran. They falsely claim that sanctions are not effective and hurt ordinary Iranian people. Recently, primarily due to opposition leaders Mousavi’s and Karoubi’s arrests, these apologists are attempting to shift the focus from Iran’s weapons program to what they have decided is more acceptable human rights issues. They have blamed the regime’s blatant human rights violations, which have recently overtaken China’s as the worst in the world, on U.S. pressure and ridiculously claimed that recognition of the IRI would improve the human rights violations in Iran.

Lobbyists such as Trita Parsi who use the pretext of easing the sanctions to help ordinary Iranians, are deceitful, and are meant to intentionally mislead the public, Iranians-Americans , Iranian Swedish , and government officials. NIAC’s recent strategy of advocating human rights is merely a cover to hide its true intention which is carried out behind the scenes to ease sanctions so that big corporations can sell nuclear technology, military gear, sophisticated surveillance technologies, electronic hardware and software applications to a criminal regime which uses them to spy on, arrest, torture, rape and kill its own citizens.

Everyday many Iranian citizens are being hanged in public squares in cities, hundreds and thousands political prisoners, labors representatives, women activists, teachers, students, university professors , lawyers, and scores of bloggers are under pressure, harassment and in danger of losing their lives. There in not one single social group who is safe under this brutal Regime. Trita Parsi is a Lobbyist for such Regime: a criminal regime with highest record of discrimination and persecution on basis of gender, ethnicity, religion and belief.

Flynt Leverett and Hillary Mann Leverett describeParsi’s recent book «A Single Roll of the Dice – Obama’s Diplomacy with Iran» as «blending distorted treatments of key issues and episodes into a deeply misleading account.»

Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, providing funding, training, arms, and political support to terrorist groups in the Middle East and worldwide such as Hezbollah, Hamas, the Taliban, and Al-Qaeda. Iranian-backed terrorist groups have killed U.S. and NATO troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. The recently uncovered Iranian plot to kill the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. on American soil fits squarely into an overall pattern of warlike escalation on the part of Iran and proves that Iran will only become bolder as it becomes more powerful.

The Center for Security Policy cites NIAC as a lobby organization for the government of Iran. As a result of a lawsuit, numerous NIAC documents have surfaced that show NIAC lobbies for policies favorable to the regime in Iran. Law enforcement experts, who have reviewed some of NIAC’s emails, memos and board minutes, believe that NIAC has operated as an undeclared lobby and may be guilty of violating tax laws, the Foreign Agents Registration Act and lobbying disclosure laws.

Court documents paint a very disturbing picture of Trita Parsi. They range from defrauding the federal government, lying to members of Congress, arranging secret meetings between the US and a criminal regime, to recent revelation that Trita Parsi paid Anne Singleton to provide false testimony to U.S. Congress. NIAC has lied about its membership numbers. It claimed once that it had 33,000 members and now court documents reveal that it has less than 500 members and is not even willing to disclose them. We think the number to be even lower. As a 501c3 tax exempt organization, NIAC refuses to disclose its audit and tax reports. Many credible news organizations have expressed concern about NIAC’s activities. Trita Parsi is routinely shunned from the Iranian-American community and does not even answer questions raised by the Iranian-Americans, a constituency he purports to represent.
Trita Parsi falsely purports to represent Iranian-American interests in the United States. With less than 500 members, Mr. Parsi shamelessly asserts that it represents the majority of the nearly one million Iranian-Americans in the USA. In our view, NIAC and Parsi will eventually be subjected to criminal prosecution and organizations and individuals that collaborate with NIAC will come to regret their affiliations with them. In addition, NIAC has received millions of dollars in grants-including, outrageously, from the Congressionally-funded National Endowment for Democracy, because of its false claims, which could actually have been allocated to further the interests of real Iranian-American human rights and other important causes in the U.S. and around the world. Instead this money has effectively been allocated to furthering the aims of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Currently, the Middle East is in crisis. Pro-democracy forces are springing up daily to demand basic human rights and better living conditions. It is about time that important organizations such as yours distance themselves from the regime lobbyists such as Trita Parsi and publicly align themselves with the democracy-seeking people who have suffered brutally at the hands of dictators and tyrants.

As Iranians we do not wish Trita Parsi to extend his lobbying and false claims to Sweden and start a new network in Europe to continue lobbying for Islamic Republic of Iran. The Institute should be aware of true nature of Trita Parsi as an advocate for the Islamic Republic and we, the undersigned demand an explanation as to why Trita Parsi has been invited by such a respectful institution such yours? Trita Parsi does not represent the majority views of the Iranian Swedish and American community and there are many Iranians experts, researchers and political leaders who can provide a less biased and more accurate assessment of current issues related to Iran and the West.
The real help to Iranians struggle for freedom , equality , human rights and a secular democracy is a real solidarity with people who challenge this dangerous regime for us, for you and for everyone.

We respectfully request that you cancel this speaking event and dis-invite Mr. Parsi, the Iranian mullahs’ apologist, from this speaking event and other similar events in the future and avoid potential embarrassment.
Sincerely,

United Iranians for Regime Change and Free Election for a Secular democracy
