Hagel Served as Keynote Speaker at Fundraiser for Iran Lobby


Jewish Lobby bad. Iran Lobby good.

Hagel has long-standing ties with the pro-Tehran lobby in the United States. Since 2002, he has appeared as a keynote speaker at fund-raisers and conferences for the American-Iranian Council, a group whose founder, Housang Amirahmadi, has boasted that he is “the Iranian lobby in the United States.”

How involved is Housang Amirahmadi in Iranian politics? So involved he ran for president. Housang boasted of his campaign to “conquer” Obama’s heart.

Iranian leaders should pay attention to what is going on, and strengthen their friends.  They [Iranian leaders] should have confidence in, energize, and trust their friends [in Washington] so they enter the arena.  This is very important.  Therefore the next two or three months are the time to conquer Obama’s heart and mind and that of his teams.

Looks like the conquest was successful.

And guess who the other former Senator and top White House figure who addressed the AIC was? No, not that obvious. It was Joe Biden.

Mr. Biden, who in October suggested that the United States might be viewed as a “high-tech bully” in attacking terrorist targets in Afghanistan, this time urged that the Bush administration “acquiesce” to Tehran’s demands to join the World Trade Organization. Insight magazine reported several weeks ago that Mr. Biden raised $30,000 at a fund-raiser held Feb. 19 at the home of Dr. Sadegh Namazi -Khah, a Los Angeles activist pushing for a softer U.S. line toward the ruling regime in Tehran; the magazine added that Mr. Biden, in private discussions at that fund-raiser, delivered a sweeping condemnation of Mr. Bush’s “axis of evil” remarks.

You get what you pay for. So does Iran.

Biden was one of 16 U.S. senators who voted against a bill that would add Iran’s Revolutionary Guards corps to the State Department’s list of international terrorist organizations, because of its involvement in murdering U.S. troops in Iraq. Rather than sanction those in power in Tehran, Biden and Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel have argued that the United States should offer Tehran a greater role in Iraq’s domestic affairs. At a March 2002 conference in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the American-Iranian Council (AIC), Biden made the case for closer U.S. ties to the government of Iran. “I believe than an improved relationship with Iran is in the naked self-interest of the United States of America,”

A Vice-President and a Secretary of Defense. Score two for the Iran lobby.

    And, yet, American Jews still vote Democrat in huge percentages.

    Folks… wake up… there is no "citizen of the world" crapola where your Jewishness won't matter. It matters to every hater out there.

    And, those reviled fundamentalist conservative Christians are your best friends. You know, the people you've been warning everyone about for the last 32 years.

    They truly believe you're the chosen people. The God of Israel told them so.

    Your well-being is their well-being. This is fundamental to their belief.

    Yet, it seems you insist on believing in the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, J. ForbesKerry, and Chuck Hagel.

    Caveat emptor.

      'They truly believe you're the chosen people. The God of Israel told them so. '

      Deuteronomy 7:7-9 tells us, “The LORD did not set His affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath He swore to your forefathers that He brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands.”

      —-
      Not all Jews voted for the monster. I am a very strong opponent of Husseins.
      More non Jews voted for Hussein than Jews.

      From the New Testament:
      You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

      —-YOU need to decide to CHOOSE to serve God, as do the Jews like anyone else.

        HAVING TROUBLE POSTING THIS.
        Hold on there MAD JEWESS…Johnconrad said nothing that would earn him your hypocrite slight, nothing at all. That was inappropriate of you. I'm glad to hear that you are opposed to Pres Hussein Obama, but that does not change the fact that he has much more support among American Jews then did Mitt.
        Additionally, your response that "More non Jews voted for Hussein than Jews."is completely negated by the fact that there are only approximately 8 million Jews in America compared to the 300,000,000 non Jews. Of course more non Jews voted for O, these are basic unavoidable statistics. This final comment of yours serves no point what-so-ever. We are all on the same side here MAD JEWESS, let's not eat our own.

          Is what I said.

    It makes total sense that the Islamist-in-Chief would pick Hagel to be Sec of Def. In fact, they are like-minded fellow travelers, very much in sync with Islamic aspirations. There is no denying the fact that Hagel is not only pro Iranian/Islamist, but also in bed financially with said concerns.

    As such, the POTUS's picks of Kerry and Brennan are of piece with the dismantling of America as a hyper- power – transformation in full.

    Be that as it may, there are some lines which should never be crossed, even if half of the population voted for this result. Why? Because the last time this blogger checked, America was still a Constitutional Republic. As such, the evisceration of its core principles are treason.

    In other words, aside from all the dangers associated with these appointments, the fact that Obama's surrogates are fiddling with the Constitution should be a non-starter, to bring this regime crashing down – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/01/09/patriotic-mar

    Some lines dare never be crossed, even though ushered in through "democratic" process.

    Adina,

    When I watch video of J ForbesKerry's slander of his fellow American troops in Vietnam, I ask myself how such a craven, worthless, self-aggrandizing individual could even be considered for dog-catcher, much less President and/or Secretary of State.

    Then I consider how the Commonwealth of the great John Adams now reveres the Kennedys.

    Sickening

    Mad Jewess,

    I'm having difficulty discerning whether you are directing that brickbat in my direction.

      'And, yet, American Jews still vote Democrat in huge percentages. '

      We are hardly enough to make up a big voting block.
      I just dont get why people dont look at the fact that 6.5 million 'born again' Christians voted for Hussein.
      Why is it only the Jews?
      Of course it rubs me the wrong way.
      Sorry.

    Hagel would have preferred to have been born in Nazi Germany and been a member of the SS.
    Why are batrastids like Hagel elected to high public office, it boggles the mind that anyone

      "…it boggles the mind that anyone but a brain dead zombie would back such a vile man"

      Hmmm…maybe zombies do exist. Check the DC registration database again for those undead people. It would explain so much in this world today.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        They do vote!!!…………….William

    "Mr. Biden, who in October suggested that the United States might be viewed as a “high-tech bully” in attacking terrorist targets in Afghanistan…"

    It's war you idiot, not cricket. And viewed by who? Leaders explain the facts, they don't mold policy to meet the expectations of our enemies.
