Kerry would still supply Iran with nuclear fuel
Remark in debate was not slip-up,
campaign website lists same policy

WASHINGTON ? Even while top Iranian officials are calling for the development of nuclear weapons within the next four months, Sen. John Kerry insists as president he would provide Tehran with the nuclear fuel it wants for a pledge to use it for peaceful purposes only.

During the debate with President Bush Thursday, Kerry remarked that the U.S. should have given Iran the nuclear fuel it wanted.

"I think the United States should have offered the opportunity to provide the nuclear fuel, test them, see whether or not they were actually looking for it for peaceful purposes," Kerry said in a critique of the Bush administration's handling of Tehran's nuclear program, which the Iranians claim is only for civilian purposes.

The comments came in response to a question about whether diplomacy and sanctions can resolve the "nuclear problems" with North Korea and Iran.

"If they weren't willing to work a deal, then we could have put sanctions together," Kerry said of Tehran. "The president did nothing."

The stunning remarks by Kerry were reported only by WorldNetDaily and some analysts suggested the statements were misunderstood, taken out of context or simply a verbal gaffe by the candidate.

However, the same policy of accommodation toward Iran's nuclear aspirations is clearly outlined on Kerry's campaign website as well.

Under the heading: "Prevent Iran From Developing Nuclear Weapons," the Kerry campaign makes the same point emphatically ? that the U.S. should still give or sell the nuclear fuel Iran wants in exchange for a promise not to build nuclear weapons.

"A nuclear armed Iran is an unacceptable risk to the national security of the United States and our allies in the region," the campaign policy statement reads. "While we have been preoccupied in Iraq, Iran has reportedly been moving ahead with its nuclear program. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and leave the negotiations to the Europeans. It is critical that we work with our allies to resolve these issues and lead a global effort to prevent Iran from obtaining the technology necessary to build nuclear weapons. Iran claims that its nuclear program is only to meet its domestic energy needs. John Kerry's proposal would call their bluff by organizing a group of states to offer Iran the nuclear fuel they need for peaceful purposes and take back the spent fuel so they cannot divert it to build a weapon. If Iran does not accept this offer, their true motivations will be clear. Under the current circumstances, John Kerry believes we should support the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) efforts to discern the full extent of Iran's nuclear program, while pushing Iran to agree to a verifiable and permanent suspension of its enrichment and reprocessing programs. If this process fails, we must lead the effort to ensure that the IAEA takes this issue to the Security Council for action."

However, according to the latest intelligence reports, Iran has decided at the highest levels of government, to build its nuclear weapons program within the next four months. Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has urged his country's weapons developers to step up work on making a nuclear bomb, a U.S. official said, according to Geostrategy-Direct, the global intelligence news service.

Citing an authoritative source in the Iranian exile community, the official said Khamenei met recently with senior government and military leaders regarding the nuclear weapons program.

Khamenei told the gathering, "We must have two bombs ready to go in January or you are not Muslims," the official said.

Tehran has said the recent International Atomic Energy Agency resolution calling on Iran to halt uranium enrichment could lead to the country's withdrawal from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.

Officials of the Kerry campaign were unavailable this weekend.

In addition to the nuclear weapons threat, Iran test-fired a Shihab-3 medium-range ballistic missile, capable of reaching Israel, Sept. 18 and also in August. The missile is reportedly capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

During the debate, Bush said he wants to continue to work with the foreign ministers of France, Germany and Great Britain to "convince the Iranian mullahs to abandon their nuclear ambitions."

Responding to Kerry, Bush noted the U.S. already has sanctioned Iran.

"We can't sanction them any more," he said. "There are sanctions in place on Iran."

Israel has said it wants to await the outcome of international pressure on Iran before it considers a pre-emptive military strike on reactors as it did in 1981 in Iraq.

At another point in the debate, Kerry also said he wants to end research on bunker-busting tactical nuclear weapons, which presumably could take out an Iranian reactor if his sanctions are ineffective.

Kerry said it "doesn't make sense" for Bush to be pursuing a new set of nuclear weapons when the U.S. is trying to tell countries such as North Korea to disarm.

"You talk about mixed messages," he said. "We're telling other people, 'You can't have nuclear weapons, but we're pursuing a new nuclear weapon that we might even contemplate using.'"

"Not this president," Kerry said. "I'm going to shut that program down, and we're going to make it clear to the world we're serious about containing nuclear proliferation."

Money trail behind
Kerry's Iran stance
Candidate has financial ties to backers of mullah regime

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

? 2004 WorldNetDaily.com

WASHINGTON ? Sen. John Kerry's call for providing Iran with the nuclear fuel it seeks, even while the regime is believed to be only months away from developing nuclear weapons, is being linked to his campaign contributions from backers of the mullah government in Tehran.

During last Thursday's nationally televised debate between the Democratic presidential candidate and President Bush, Kerry insisted as president he would provide Tehran with the nuclear fuel it wants for a pledge to use it for peaceful purposes only.

"I think the United States should have offered the opportunity to provide the nuclear fuel, test them, see whether or not they were actually looking for it for peaceful purposes," Kerry said in a critique of the Bush administration's handling of Tehran's nuclear program, which the Iranians claim is only for civilian purposes.

The comments came in response to a question about whether diplomacy and sanctions can resolve the "nuclear problems" with North Korea and Iran.

"If they weren't willing to work a deal, then we could have put sanctions together," Kerry said of Tehran. "The president did nothing."

Among Kerry's top fund-raisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Most prominent among them is Hassan Nemazee, 54, an investment banker based in New York. Nominated to become U.S. ambassador to Argentina by President Clinton in 1999, Nemazee eventually withdrew his nomination after a former partner raised allegations of business improprieties, WND previously reported.

Nemazee was a major Clinton donor, giving $80,000 to the Democratic National Committee during the 1996 election cycle and attending at least one of the famous White House fund-raising coffees.

In 2001, at the invitation of Mobil Oil Chairman Lucio Noto, whom he counts as a "personal friend," Nemazee joined the board of the American-Iranian Council, a U.S. lobbying group that consistently has supported lifting U.S. sanctions on Iran and accommodating the Tehran regime.

The Kerry camp has identified Nemazee as having raised more than $100,000 for the senator's campaign, WND reported last spring.

A Nemazee friend in Silicon Valley, Faraj Aalaei, has raised between $50,000 and $100,000 for the Kerry campaign. Aalaei has worked in the telecommunications industry for 22 years and is the chief executive officer of Centillium Communications, a publicly traded company.

Last year, Aalaei married a 35-year-old recent immigrant from Iran named Susan Akbarpour, whom the Kerry campaign also lists as having raised between $50,000 and $100,000 for the campaign.

In just six years since coming to the United States on a tourist visa from Iran, Akbarpour has started a newspaper, a magazine and, most recently, a trade association whose goal is to get sanctions lifted and promote U.S. business and investment in Iran.

Most odd about the support from Akbarpour, writes Kenneth Timmerman in this month's issue of the American Spectator, is that she claimed political asylum from the Iranian regime when she came to this country.

Meanwhile, Kerry has embraced the entire political agenda of Akbarpour and other wealthy Iranian-Americans embracing Tehran. Those positions include:


ending the fingerprinting of Iranian visitors to the U.S.;

expanding "family reunion" visas to allow extended family members of Iranians living in the U.S. to immigrate here legally and in large numbers;

offering a "dialogue" with the hard-line, terrorist-supporting clerics in Tehran;

help Iran join the World Trade Organization.
The stunning remarks by Kerry were initially reported only by WorldNetDaily, and some analysts suggested the statements were misunderstood, taken out of context or simply a verbal gaffe by the candidate.

However, the same policy of accommodation toward Iran's nuclear aspirations is clearly outlined on Kerry's campaign website as well.

ELECTION 2004
FBI docs say China funded Kerry
Suggest exchange with Beijing for aerospace technology

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: August 28, 2004
1:00 a.m. Eastern

? 2004 WorldNetDaily.com

The legal watchdog group Judicial Watch announced the release of recently declassified documents that indicate Sen. John Kerry accepted laundered contributions from the communist Chinese government for his 1996 re-election campaign.

In exchange, Judicial Watch suspects, the presidential candidate might have arranged meetings between Chinese aerospace executives and U.S. government officials.

"These disturbing FBI documents raise further questions about Sen. Kerry's involvement in what looks like a quid pro quo [cash for meetings] with the communist Chinese," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

An Insight magazine report published by WND earlier this month revealed a new photograph has emerged showing the Massachusetts senator in Beijing working with a company associated with the Chinese military.

Judicial Watch obtained the FBI documents, related to the "Chinagate" investigation in the 1990s, through Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act.

The "Chinagate" probe looked into the Clinton campaign's acceptance of contributions from Chinese government sources.

Among the documents released is an investigative outline [PDF file] dated March 27, 1998, that details the FBI's "proposed areas of inquiry" into the actions of Democratic fund-raiser Johnny Chung.

Those include questioning Chung about meetings Kerry set up with China aerospace executives and about a fund-raising event for the senator in Los Angeles.

The other document, [PDF file] dated Aug. 24, 1998, requests a polygraph of Chung, mentioning he laundered contributions for the Clinton/Gore '96 election campaign and for Kerry.

Judicial Watch is appealing the FBI's decision to keep portions of the heavily redacted documents secret.

Chung pled guilty in March 1998 to election law violations and, in a plea bargain, began cooperating with the FBI.

The Washington, D.C.-based group represents Chung in a lawsuit against Justice Department officials who, during the Clinton administration, leaked information about Chung's cooperation with the department's Campaign Finance Task Force.

Support the Movement in the counter suit against Kerry's main fundraiser
SMCCDI (Urgent Action)
Aug 3, 2004


" To sin by silence, when we should protest, makes cowards out of men. The human race has climbed on protest. Had no voice been raised against injustice, ignorance and lust, the inquisition yet would serve the law, and guillotines decide our least disputes. The few who dare, must speak and speak again, to right the wrongs of many..." - ( Ella Wheeler Wilcox )

Dear Principled Americans, Dear Freedom loving Iranians,

Finally, the legal venue of the "Nemazee Vs. SMCCDI and Aryo B. Pirouznia" cases have been transferred from Harris County Houston/TX) to Dallas County (Dallas/TX). These two transfers were made based on the legal ground advanced by "Payma & Kuhnel Law Firm" which represents along with "Brady & Cole Law Firm" the SMCCDI and its Coordinator in this affair.

A case number was attributed, by the Dallas District Court, and a counter suit introduced immediately, on August 2, 2004. Legal proceedings can now start in what is believed, by many, to be a case which will shed light on many controversies and which might touch some aspects of the Kerry campaign in reference to the upcoming US Presidential elections and promises made to the Mullahs in Iran.

More than ever, your help is needed in these very critical and decisive times when Iranians are subjected to repression and America's sons and daughters are leading a common war against tyranny and terror!!!

As a reminder, Mr. Nemazee, who's of Iranian origin himself, is Senator John Kerry's main fundraiser and a notorious advocate for legitimizing the Islamic Republic which is well known as being a tyrannical and terrorist regime. He has sued the Movement and its coordinator, for 10 Million Dollars, in what is believed to be an attempt to muffle or force SMCCDI to cease its operations. The Movement and its members have consistently exposed and denounced Nemazee and his colleagues' misdeeds and tricks while shedding light on their activities and hidden goals. It's to note that in addition to many evidences, the freedom slowing role of Nemazee and some of his colleagues, such as, Akbar Ghahary and Soosan Akbarpoor, who are also part of the highest level of the Kerry Campaign, has been praised by some of the Islamic governmentally linked newspapers, such as Etemaad daily, which are praising the gang for having been able to neutralize some of the opposition's activities in the US.

Indeed Nemazee's intentional acts and later his law suits, in addition to having bought more time for the Islamic regime, have caused, so far, many damages and harms to many Iranians, the Movement and some of its members. In addition to different psychological impacts, they have slowed the well known prompt activities of SMCCDI in exposing the Mullahcracy's crimes and demagogy. They have also taken many of the necessary and vital time needed for defending some of the NGO and media recognized Iranian students and secularist elements who are victims of the Islamic regime's repressive policies.

Should we let such misdeeds to go on and on???

NO, and It seems that it's by understanding the depth of the will of the Movement to fight and its coordinator's firmness in accepting the challenge, that Mr. Nemazee has tried, at several occasions in the last weeks, to back off from his initial hasty decision of suing with most likely the desperate hope of being able to close the Pandora box and avoiding an unprecedented domino effect. Indeed "some" rejected proposals were made, by different channels to SMCCDI and Aryo B. Pirouznia, most likely following the understating, by Mr. Nemazee, of some of the ramifications that his caught Poker Bluff and its subsequent noisy legal proceeding can have for Mr. Kerry's Campaign and especially for his own targeted future opportunities in case of his Prot?g?'s win in the next US Presidential elections.

Should we let such misdeeds to go on and on???

It's in reaction to such misdeeds and illegitimate goals that SMCCDI and its Coordinator have chosen to fight and are needing all kind of support especially any financial donations helping the legal process to go on and the justice to prevail !

In that line, the IOLTA account (Trust Fund) of "Payma & Kuhnel Law Firm" is ready to receive the principled people of good will and freedom lovers' financial donations of any amount, in order to allocate them for the costly defense of SMCCDI and Aryo B. Pirouznia against Hassan Nemazee and the counter suit made yesterday by the defendants. This IOLTA account's references for any wire or deposit are as follow: "Wells Fargo Bank of Texas, Routing #111900659, Account #1376125793, for SMCCDI & Aryo B. Pirouznia Defense Case." It's to note that these non tax deductible donations, made to the Lawyer's IOLTA account, have the benefit of keeping legally anonymous the names of the contributors and are not subjected to any deposit limitation.

Also, you can make direct credit or debit/check card financial contributions to the Movement via the well trusted "Paypal Banking System" which is used by many famous NGOs or organizations, such as, Ronald McDonald. SMCCDI-Daneshjoo is subscribed to Paypal and its account can be reached via the Movement's website by clicking on the Paypal logo or by clicking directly on the following link: https://www.paypal.com/xclick/business=s...rrency_code=USD (NOTE: I) If you do not have a Paypal account: A) On first page: 1) Enter your donation's amount, 2) Choose the option "If you do not currently have a PayPal account", B) On second page: 1) Select the "No shipping required", 2) Write your billing address; C) On third page: Fill all the sections related to your credit or debit/check card information, email, billing address, phone and do not forget to fill the security measure code unique to each donation D) Continue check out on fourth page); II) If you do have a Paypal account: Process as for your other usual donations or shoppings)

Any help in that sense is a contribution to the case of Iran's Freedom and the War Against Tyranny and Terror !!!

Help us for the creation of a better Iran and a safer World for all! Help yourself and the future of your children!

(For a better understanding of this case, you can check, from August 10th, www.RegimeInfluence.com (a very informative website under construction) or read the SMCCDI (Public Announcement) of April 29, 2004, entitled "Kerry's main Iranian fund raiser sues the Movement". This detailed document, including many arguments and media reports, is located at:

Since when did Iran actually declare they were going to get into the nuclear weapons game? When last I checked they were getting into the nuclear power game and there is a huge difference. Now amazingly US officials claim they know Iran WILL make nuclear weapons? Yeah ok, just like Iraq had WMD's? How could any free thinking individual actually believe that tripe? They're just setting the groundwork for an Iranian invasion, just wait and see.

Taken from another site

Quote:

The world press cites John Bolton, US Undersecretary of State, that even a single reactor in Bushehr can become a potential plutonium supplier allowing Iran to make 30 nuclear bombs a year. However, specialists know only too well that no one has ever made and will hardly make a bomb out of reactor-grade plutonium (as distinct from weapons-grade plutonium), since this is an extremely expensive, dangerous and unproductive method. Besides, a major chemical plant would be needed for implementing such plans, which could not be left unnoticed by the world.

Now, bear in mind that what they are talking about is not bombs, like Israel makes at Dimona, but simply making fuel for a civilian power reactor. Iran feels it should have the right to make fuel rods for their reactor. The US and Ireal are taking the position that because the same system might possibly be used to make bombs, that Iran should not be allowed to have the capability. Perhaps Israel would not be so mistrusting had they themselves not deceived the world about their own nuclear weapons program.
