The Iranian Americans

December 2, 2012 Posted by

THE IRANIAN AMERICANS chronicles the underreported history of a group of immigrants finding refuge, overcoming adversity and ultimately creating new lives in the United States. Even though Iran is in the news virtually every day, many Americans have little knowledge of the story of the hundreds of thousands of Iranians who live in the U.S. The special is presented by the network’s flagship station in Greater Los Angeles and Southern California, PBS SoCaL.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rH_GWpaV94Q

As THE IRANIAN AMERICANS shows, the Iranians’ story begins more than two millennia ago in the Middle East, in a land that came to be called Persia. They built an empire that stretched from North Africa to India, from the Caspian to the Red Sea. A people of diverse ethnicities and faiths, they developed rich traditions that endured centuries of migrations and conquests. In the second half of the 20th century, the nation, now known as Iran, was racked by political and religious upheaval, leading ultimately to revolution. In 1979, the revolution thrust Ayatollah Khomeini into power, beginning an era when dissent was not tolerated. Tens of thousands of Iranians left their homeland for the United States, a country they would come to call home.

Iranians had been immigrating to America in small numbers for decades, primarily for education, but 1979 saw massive migration. THE IRANIAN AMERICANS is an emotional account of displacement told by more than 25 Iranians who were uprooted from their home and heritage and built completely new lives in the U.S.

Iranian Americans, also called Persian Americans, who are featured in the documentary come from diverse backgrounds. They are educators, politicians, diplomats, scientists, comedians, bankers and writers, to name a few.

Among the Iranian Americans who provide an emotional and personal perspective on their experience are:

Maz Jobrani –Actor/comedian, who is also part of the “Axis of Evil” comedy group.
Jamshid “Jimmy” Delshad –Politician from California who became mayor of Beverly Hills on March 21, 2007, and again on March 16, 2010. As mayor, he was the highest-ranking elected Iranian-American official.
Firouz Naderi — Director of solar system exploration at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), he managed the Mars exploration program at the time of the landing of heralded twin Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity.
Goli Ameri –The former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs and a former delegate to the United Nations. Currently, she is Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Values and Diplomacy for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Hamid Biglari –A vice-chairman of Citicorp, the main operating arm of Citigroup, a $60 billion revenue business with operations in more than 100 countries.

Iranian American WeddingGoldberg, the film’s director and executive producer, is the founder and owner of Two Cats Productions in New York, NY. For nearly 15 years, he has produced and directed news and documentaries for such networks as PBS, ABC and CBS, along with numerous networks internationally. THE IRANIAN AMERICANS was written by Goldberg and producer Sara Goldblatt, narrated by CBS Sunday Morning senior correspondent Martha Teichner and edited by Jane Wagner. The director of photography is Claudia Raschke-Robinson.

Illegal exports to Iran on the rise, say U.S. officials

November 22, 2012 Posted by

Asian companies and middlemen are helping Tehran illicitly obtain American technology, investigators say, in what they describe as a worrisome trend.

By Ken Dilanian

November 17, 2012, 9:48 p.m.

Los Angeles TimesWASHINGTON — When Susan Yip stood before a federal judge in San Antonio last month, she apologized tearfully for her role in smuggling American technology to Iran.

Yip, a Taiwanese businesswoman, was sentenced Oct. 24 to two years in prison after pleading guilty to obtaining or trying to obtain more than $2.6 million worth of parts and materials that could be used in nuclear weapons, missile guidance systems and radio jammers. The scheme involved 599 transactions with 63 U.S. companies.

Iran ‘war buy’ foiled

November 17, 2012 Posted by

An Iranian national has been charged with scheming to illegally purchase military aircraft parts for export to his rogue country, the feds announced yesterday.

Alireza Moazami Goudarzi, 28, allegedly e-mailed a US company in 2010 and offered to pay more than market value for civilian aircraft parts in order to evade the ongoing US embargo against Iran.

After the firm contacted the feds, an undercover agent began handling the proposed purchase, along with Goudarzi’s request for other items, including rotor blades for an attack helicopter that can’t be exported without a license from the State Department, according to the Manhattan US Attorney’s Office.

Goudarzi met with the undercover agent last month in Malaysia, where he was busted by local authorities and is awaiting extradition.

November 12, 2012

Hong Kong will stop allowing 19 ships linked to the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) from operating under its flag, a government letter showed, in the latest blow to Tehran’s sanctions-hit global trade.

A letter from the Hong Kong government’s marine department (HKMD) dated November 9 and seen by Reuters showed the authority had given notice to the owners of the 19 ships. …

Hong Kong had been urged by U.S. pressure group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) to end the flagging of 19 dry bulk ships, which the group said were owned, managed or operated by IRISL and its front companies.

Note the title is not “Why I am voting for Mitt Romney.” That’s because the two major American parties, Democratic and Republican, represent contrasting outlooks and you vote for the one or other of them, not for a personality. The presidential candidate is captain of the team but its many other players act autonomously. The past half-century has seen a sharpening of the divide between the parties’ philosophical consistency which I (unlike most observers) see as a positive development; who needs Rockefeller Republicans, wets, or RINOs? And ticket-splitting increases gridlock.

Published November 02, 2012

The Greeks, the Incas, the Hittites – all created myths to explain life’s mysteries. They have nothing on the Obama campaign.

Remember how the Supreme Court decision allowing corporate political spending was going to undermine Democrats, uh, that is, democracy? How Republican super PACs would give Governor Romney an insurmountable spending advantage? As it turns out, the Obama campaign has raised more money than the GOP candidate – almost $1 billion dollars – even while as recently as August Obama was e-mailing supporters, warning that he was going to be outspent. Obama has run 160,000 campaign ads so far, compared to 140,000 for Romney. Read the rest of this entry »

The Late Shah of Iran: A leader betrayed by his people, friends and the free world

By Arash Irandoost

October 28,  2010

Disagreements among many Iranians about Dr. Mossadegh and the late Shah are futile at best designed to divide, derail and distract us from the eminent danger posed by the Islamic Republic in Iran. PDMI views Cyrus the Great, the late Shah, Dr. Mossadegh, Dr. Bakhtiar and even despicable characters like Khomeini, Khamenei and their little big man Ahmadinejad ALL as Iran’s leaders. Let’s judge them by their words and deeds. Using profanity and having a shouting match at public events and online media creates disunity and harms our credibility and weakens oppositions’ efforts. Rather than raising our voice, let’s reinforce our argument with evidence. logic and reason.

 

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer

 

 

President Reagan explained why Carter’s policy and action toward the Shah and Iran was in error in the following terms during, during a per-election debate.

 

 

 

…the Shah did our bidding and carried our load in Middle East for quite some time. And I do think that it was a blot on our [America’s] record that we let him down. Had things gotten better, the Shah… what he might have done… was building low cost housing, he had taken the land from the mullahs and distributed it to the peasants so that they could be landowners …. But we [Carter Administration] turned it over to a maniacal fanatic [Khomeini] who has slaughtered thousands and thousands of people, calling it executions.

Trita Parsi’s “anti war” business

January 3, 2013 Posted by

Once again, Trita Parsi of NIAC has asked for money. As usual, he presents himself as a genuine defender of peace and frames his critics (including me Hassan dai) as the stooges of warmongers and neocons who seek the invasion of our country. Parsi’s new writing reveals his true nature and deceit.

The lawsuit that he and NIAC filed and finally lost, showed one thing clearly that he lies as easily as we breath. He and NIAC were punished for these lies and will have to pay hundreds of thousands of Dollars. They lied to the court, their expert lied (and was disqualified) and their attorney was disbarred. In its ruling, the court sanctioned NIAC for discovery abuses and untrue declarations to the court. The judge wrote: “There is no question that plaintiffs have repeatedly tried to evade their discovery obligations… In awarding sanctions, the Court is mindful not just of the need to compensate defendant, but also of the need to deter plaintiffs from future discovery abuses.” (Ruling, p. 23)

Putin: Ending Syrian war takes priority over al-Assad’s fate
From Saad Abedine and Laura Smith-Spark, CNN
December 20, 2012 — Updated 1412 GMT (2212 HKT)

(CNN) — Russia declared Thursday that its goal is to end the bloody conflict in Syria, not help the nation’s embattled president cling to power at all costs.

“We are advocating the solution that would prevent the collapse of the region and the continuous civil war,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a televised news conference in Moscow.

“Not retain (President Bashar) al-Assad and his regime.”

To do that, he said, talks between opposing sides are crucial.

Al-Assad has not visited Moscow a lot in his tenure, and Russia does not have “special economic relations” with Syria, according to Putin.

Russia is “not concerned” about al-Assad’s fate, he said.

“We understand what’s going on there (in Syria). We know that this family has been in power for 40 years,” he said.

Alarm in Tehran and Moscow over Bushehr nuclear reactor’s near-explosion in mid-October

December 2, 2012 Posted by

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report December 1, 2012,

Fuel rods removed from Bushehr nuclear reactor

Iran’s nuclear reactor at Bushehr was shut down in mid-October for fear of an explosion. Saturday Dec. 1, an authoritative Russian nuclear industry source revealed the cause of its malfunction: “Indicators showed that some small external parts were… in the [Bushehr] reactor vessel….” They were identified as “bolts beneath the fuel cells.”

debkafile’s Moscow sources report this information came from a source in the office of Sergei Kiriyenko, head of the Russian nuclear energy authority Rosatom, which supervised the construction of Iran’s first atomic reactor at Bushehr.

According to our intelligence sources, Russian scientists and engineers were rushed from Moscow to Bushehr when Russian leaders including Vladimir Putin were warned that the danger of an explosion at Bushehr was high. Neither Moscow nor Tehran reported what was happening. Now they are racing against the clock to get the reactor back on stream.

8 children killed outside Damascus as Syrian civil war rages on

November 26, 2012 Posted by

(CNN) — “May God bring you pain, Bashar.”

The plea is from a woman as she stands over a young child, dressed in purple pants and a matching shirt. Cursing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, she asks why the girl had to die — one of eight children killed by shelling Sunday on a playground in a Damascus suburb, according to opposition activists.

The woman’s cries are among a host of heartwrenching moments captured on video from Deir al-Assafir. Posted on YouTube, and quickly spreading via social media, it begins by showing the bodies of two seemingly dead little girls on the ground, then two more bodies in a car, then adults carrying even more limp children. A young girl on the pavement cries uncontrollably, before being picked up.

Commander: Iran Missile Technology Sent to Gaza

TEHRAN, Iran November 21, 2012 (AP)

Iran has supplied Hamas in Gaza with the technology to “quickly” produce longer-range missiles on their own without needing direct shipments, said a report Wednesday that quoted the head of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard.

The comments by Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari offer some of the clearest insights on Iran’s weapons support for Hamas, whose Iranian-engineered Fajr-5 missiles have struck near Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during weeklong battles with Israel.

“Gaza is under siege, so we cannot help them. The Fajr-5 missiles have not been shipped from Iran. Its technology has been transferred and (the missiles are) being produced Read the rest of this entry »

How will Obama treat Israel? How will he handle Iranian threat? Who will replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state? Experts are already speculating about US leadership in the next four years less than 24 hours after Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term.

“Obama has prepared the ground very carefully and has the option of trying to cut some kind of a deal on the nuclear issue, and that’s worth a lot to him,” said Gary Sick [IRI Lobbyist], an Iran expert and former US national security official.

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — The leadership of Syria’s main opposition bloc in exile, the Syrian National Council, has become an all-male affair after elections failed to promote a single woman to a decision-making group of 41.

Female delegates at the SNC convention under way in Qatar — some rushing toward the podium in protest after the results were announced early Thursday — say the shutout fails to reflect the key role of women in the push to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad and erodes the SNC’s attempt at diversity.

Congresswoman Baldwin gets nearly $60,000 from group against Iranian sanctions

October 18, 2012 Posted by

Oct. 17, 2012

U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin – who was against Iranian sanctions before she was for them – has received nearly $60,000 for her Senate bid from a group that says the American policy of imposing sanctions and trying to “publicly threaten and insult Iran” does little more than strengthen the country’s hard-liners.

The Council for a Livable World, which opposes nuclear weapons, argues that Iran poses no current threat to the United States.

Baldwin has had the support of the left-of-center group since her first congressional race in 1998.

“Unfortunately, United States policy has been to publicly threaten and insult Iran while taking provocative actions such as adopting a policy of regime change, attempting to increase unilateral sanctions, deploying additional military assets in the region, and arresting Iranian representatives in Iraq,” says the council’s research arm, the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.

The cost of inaction is yet another generation of Middle Eastern youth who will believe the worst about America, no matter how far-fetched the claims

By Anne-Marie Slaughter | Special to Gulf News
Published: 00:00 October 18, 2012
Gulf News

In this US election season, President Barack Obama is two men in one. The Obama of the Cairo speech of 2009, when he called for a new beginning between the US and Muslims around the world, has been increasingly eclipsed by Obama the terrorist-slayer, the commander-in-chief who has launched hundreds of drone strikes against Al Qaida and its affiliates and who ordered the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

Commander-in-chief Obama is doing what he thinks is necessary to keep Americans safe, but he is ignoring the deeper roots of US security that the Cairo Obama understood so well. It may well be necessary for other Muslim countries to hold him to account.

EU sanctions target Iran oil, gas and tanker companies

October 16, 2012 Posted by

The Pro Democracy Movement of Iran (PDMI) applauds the EU’s new sanctions targeting oil, gas and tanker companies. PDMI thanks many concerned Iranians who wrote letters and contacted EU officials from across the world urging them to impose strictest non-food and medicine sanctions against the regime and demanded an all out oil embargo which is the lifeline for the regime to finance its terrorist activities and nuclear weapons program. Iranian Americans have expressed concern over 20 waivers by the Obama administration in the hopes of bringing the mullahs to the negotiations table.

Reuters / Brussels Oct 17, 2012, 00:10 IST
European Union governments imposed sanctions on Tuesday against major Iranian state companies in the oil and gas industry, and strengthened restrictions on the central bank, cranking up financial pressure over Tehran’s nuclear programme. More than 30 firms and institutions were listed in the EU’s Official Journal as targets for asset freezes in the EU, including the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), a large crude exporter, and the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC). Their importance has risen in recent months as the European Union and the United States seek to reduce Tehran’s access to cash by forcing Western companies to halt trade with Iran. Iran said the sanctions would not work. “We recommend that, instead of taking the wrong approach and being stubborn and using pressure, … with a logical approach they can return to discussions,” foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told a news conference.
