  1. Regardless of who this loony really is, I think it’s wrong to assume that no iranians hope for outside help against their oppressors. Even in the shape of bombs. It’s really only a matter of how bad things are in iran.

    Also, it’s hypocritical to deny any possibilty of iranians hoping for international help, while expecting israelies to support BDS.

    In not so many years, when israel starts executing gays (like iran), I would pray that someone bomb the living daylights out of the whole goddamn country.

    1. Barbara Slavin is on record addressing this issue, and I have personal experience confirming it:

      Slavin has visited Iran frequently. On a trip about ten years ago, many people said to her, “We’d like American help to overthrow the regime.”

      On a trip to Iran about 6 years ago, Slavin said “a few” Iranians would like US assistance.

      On her last visit (in 2009 I think), Slavin said that NOBODY wants US help or interference in Iran affairs.

      Since then, the exponential increase in sanctions on Iran; the US State Dept’s rejection of Turkey-Brazil efforts to negotiate nuclear deal; and increasingly psychotic behavior and rhetoric from Israel toward Iran, have caused Iranians to shift further from US and to cohere more tightly to their own government. Where Ahmadinejad travels in Iran, massive crowds follow. AN is popular in the Arab street.

      Israel and US have overplayed their hand; AISH is overplaying its hand.

      The best Americans can hope for is no backlash.

  2. Naturally, Ignatius would review it favorably. He’s a neocon, himself. The drums of war continue to beat. The only good sign is, Israel is making such a fool of itself that its, and US’, policies may backfire and cause it to implode on itself before it can attack Iran.

  3. any lawyers out there? Can this be characterized as Hate Speech?

    Are boycotts of AMC planned? Protest demonstrations at AMC movie houses?

    1. Yeah. Where is PersianAdvocate on this one? He’s been conspicuously absent of late, and this is right up his alley.

  4. I cannot call myself a Persian Advocate, I am living in the US and more involved with local politics and progressive Democrats, but I still have lots of feelings for Iran, my motherland, and I still have lots of relatives there. I can tell everyone reading this note, I sincerely believe, most of the Iranians do not want any help from outside, they actually think any help from outside would postpone their path to democracy and a free Iran. I can also tell you, as a person who used to live in Iran during Iran-Iraq war, one of the best helps that could give the Islamic Republic and mullahs more power, is another war. I have been against the sanctions for the same reason, they are empowering the regime, as well.
    The best anyone can do, is leaving Iranians alone, except in their nuclear program. That program should be monitored by the UN and IAEA.

    1. Exactly. Fear is the best food for oppression.

      The US should stop doing Israel’s dirty work and leave Iran alone. People used to worship the US and I am sure people thought that America could do anything.

      Now, we have spent the last decade proving just how incompetant we are at nation building and terrorist killing.

      Time to GTFO.

  5. “Melman’s story also claims that Khalili taught Revolutionary Guard personnel how to use computers. In another passage, Khalili notes that his most active period in the Guard was in the “early 1980s.” I myself took a computer science course at Columbia University in 1980 and computers were in their infancy. Microsoft didn’t even begin as a company until 1980 and Windows wasn’t developed until 1985. I am dubious that Khalili taught anyone anywhere computers in the early 1980s. Another strike against him.”

    You took one computer course, that qualifies you to dismiss his claim? They don’t teach logic at Columbia, do they?

    I worked in the computer industry in the 80s. The west developed desktop computing, and people like Khalili did bring them to less developed countires.

    1. The “80s” lasted 10 yrs. There was a huge diff. bet. the industry in 1980 & 1989. Even a huge diff. between 1980 & 1986. So drop the stupid snark & be a little more precise so we can judge accurately yr claims. As for Khalili’s, did whatever school you attended teach you enough about Iranian politics to know that Khalili is the real thing. Or are you just trying to snark yr way through that as well?

      Khalili is a fraud. Period. If he isn’t prove it if you can. And cut out the snark. It gets old fast.

  6. Reza Khalili claims to have continuing inside information about Iran, and he makes the most extravagant claims – perhaps the most excessive was in January, when he claimed that Iran was in the process of weaponizing smallpox. Just prior to that, he warned of “170 ballistic missiles aimed at Tel Aviv, many with biological warheads”.

    Apparently we’re expected to believe that there’s a continuing and unstoppable leakage of massively significant information out of Iran to an unnamed defector somewhere in Europe, who then passes it on to Khalili, who then publishes it in WorldNetDaily.
