Pro-Iran lobby is a coalition of organizations and politicians, led by US corporations and accompanied by an army of pundits and Iran experts that regardless of what Iran is doing, asks the US government to adopt a friendlier policy with Iran and remove sanctions. At the center of this lobby are small Iranian-American organizations that are tied to various factions of the Iranian regime.

There are a number of Islamic organizations in the US that are tied to the Iranian regime, disseminate its ideology and attempt to generate support for its political agenda. The vast majority of American Muslims follow a moderate Islam and reject extremist views including the Iranian regime’s ideology.

The recent Iran deal has brought much fanfare and celebration, most of which conveniently overlooks the fundamental nature of the Iranian regime. Putting aside the details of the agreement, one claim in particular has consistently been made about the nuclear deal which simply holds no weight.

Hamid Yazdan Panah, July 14, 2015
NIAC continues to use the nuclear crisis to score as many points as it can. Like a Mullah stuffing his face with the last remaining ghorme sabzi, NIAC has sought to squeeze every last drop of publicity (and money), out of the Iran talks.

By slandering Senator Graham, NIAC tries to attain two goals: First, to discredit anti-Iranian regime camp in the US and facilitate Tehran’s pursuit of its nuclear ambitions and its hegemonic drive in the region. Second, it seeks to gain credit as a genuine defender of the Iranian-American community and use this credit to pursue its pro-regime lobby activities in Washington
