Heshmat Alavi+ Your Authors @HeshmatAlavi Covering #Iran & #MidEast, especially what MSM won't. Have a passion for exposing Tehran apologists/lobbyists. Blocked by mullahs' dictator @Khamenei_ir Feb. 06, 2020 1 min read + Your Authors



@PeteButtigieg, the Iowa caucus "winner," is endorsed & advised by @vali_nasr, a known #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist who describes Qassem Soleimani as a “general” & “bureaucrat” rather than the terrorist he is.

Let’s get to know more about Vali Nasr.

Nasr teamed up with @AliVaez, another known Tehran apologist, to write an NYT piece desperately begging for negotiations with the US.

Vaez is a known protégé of former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Vaez is also advising Buttigieg.

And here are Nasr's views about Iranian President @HassanRouhani & Foreign Minister @JZarif, claiming they enjoy support among the Iranian people.

Quoting @RJBrodsky:

For Nasr, the protests directed against the regime in Iran & Iraq are of no significance. His answer for what the U.S. should do is give Iran more goodies & blindly hope for a change in their behavior. Obama already tried & failed.

Brodsky further debunking Nasr’s defense of Soleimani, Iran’s terrorist designated Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) & the Quds Force.

Nasr is a member of Tehran’s network of apologists/lobbyists who are associated to
@NIACouncil, Iran’s disgraced DC-based lobby group.

And BTW, Nasr & Vaez can't tolerate anyone proving they are Iranian regime apologists/lobbyists.

Reminder about other members of Iran’s lobby enjoying close ties with certain DC politicians.

Meet @ManaKharrazi, a members of Tehran’s lobby in Washington, who has very close relations with certain DC politicians.


Other members of Iran’s lobby, NIAC, gaining a foothold in Congress.


Other certain DC politicians, including @brhodes, @ChrisMurphyCT, @RepDanKildee, @DonnaFEdwards & … enjoy close relations with Iran’s lobby NIAC.
