SPREADING FALSEHOODS ABOUT IRAN: “United Against Nuclear Iran”

By publishing propagandistic reports and articles on the purported hazard of Iran’s nuclear activities, UANI also functions as a mouthpiece which is exclusively dedicated to fear-mongering and spreading falsehood about Iran.

Those who regularly follow the developments of Iran might have come across  the website of “United Against Nuclear Iran”, a “non-partisan, non-profit advocacy organization” that seeks to “prevent Iran from fulfilling its ambition to become a regional super-power possessing nuclear weapons”

UANI has compiled an elaborate list of the foreign companies and firms which do business with Iran and calls on its readers and visitors to send condemnatory letters and complaints to these companies so as to persuade them to withdraw their capitals and resources from Iran and stop doing business with a country which the United States and its European allies consider to be an emerging nuclear threat in the Middle East.

Interestingly, UANI has listed each and every foreign company which is active in Iran, from the food production companies to internet service providers, medicine manufacturers, industrial conglomerates, news agencies, transportation infrastructure providers and private consortiums, and its objective is to convince these companies to put an end to their activities in Iran.
UANI runs a divestment campaign which contains pressuring foreign corporations to stop conducting business with Iran. So far, it has succeeded in pulling out General Electric, Caterpillar and Ingersoll Rand from Iran’s market.

UANI’s advisory board consists of a number of U.S. government insiders and big shots who have close ties with the U.S. statesmen including R. James Woolsey, the former head of CIA, Fouad Ajami, a John Hopkins University professor and a close associate of the Council on Foreign Relations, Henry D. Sokolski, the former Deputy for Nonproliferation Policy in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and Gary Milhollin, the director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control and the publisher of “Iran Watch” website which is dedicated to promoting financial sanctions against Iran.

The activities of UANI, however, are not limited to lobbying for the intensification of sanctions against Iran. Each year and on the advent of UN General Assembly, UANI runs an advertorial campaign to prevent New York hotels from accommodating Iranian President and his colleagues and dissuade the city’s convention centers from hosting events in which the Iranian officials are slated to deliver a speech.

By publishing propagandistic reports and articles on the purported hazard of Iran’s nuclear activities, UANI also functions as a mouthpiece which is exclusively dedicated to fear-mongering and spreading falsehood about Iran.

UANI’s President is Mark Wallace, the former United States Ambassador to the United Nations and a close companion of ex-President George W. Bush. Wallace had played a key role in the Florida election recount of 2000 which finally resulted in the installation of Bush to the presidency of the United States. Wallace also presides over Tigris Financial Group Ltd, “a multifaceted investment, advisory and asset management business with areas of focus that include resources and the natural resources sector, real estate, art and collectibles.”

UANI is a well-funded group which regularly runs anti-Iranian TV ads on cable news stations. With budgets which are seemingly devoted to UANI by the U.S. government, this “advocacy organization” produces anti-Iranian materials which are on sale in its online store. These materials include lapel pin, bumper sticker, baseball cap, yard sign kit and T-shirts on which several anti-Iranian slogans are printed.

This anti-Iranian group which is spearheaded and funded by the extremist neo-conservatives in the United States has emerged as a duplicate of “Freedom’s Watch”, a lobbying organization which pursues similar objectives to those of UANI in confrontation with Iran and its nuclear activities. It’s chaired by Ari Fleischer, a former Press Secretary to ex-President Bush and Matthew Brooks, the executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition. American billionaire businessman Sheldon Adelson funds this group sumptuously and helps them in running political campaigns and TV programs against Iran.

According to peace activist and political journalist Richard Silverstein, the website of UANI is backed bu Henley MacIntyre, a former Bush political operative who was involved in the RNC/White House email scandal. Times reported in April 2007 that more than 50 White House staffers violated the Presidential Records Act by “inadvertently” removing 2,400 pages of electronic documents which were relevant to the discriminatory firing of eight U.S. attorneys by the direct verdict of President George W. Bush.

A little bit of research demonstrates the fact that UANI and its major players are not afraid of a nuclear threat by Iran. It is Israel that is the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. Why have they turned a blind eye to the striking reality that it’s only Israel that poses a fundamental threat to the global security with its hawkish politicians who don’t know anything of peace and stability? The specifications of the Dimona nuclear facilities in Israel are almost known to everyone. If nuclear disarmament was the intention of UANI’s actors, they would start by disarming Israel and the permanent members of United Nations Security Council whose nuclear arsenals are filled with thousands of atomic warheads. If UANI was looking for peace and nuclear non-proliferation, it would have advocated a nuclear-free Middle East by demilitarizing the sophisticated arsenals of the Zionist regime.

UANI claims that its goal is to prevent Iran from possessing nuclear weapons, so it persuades foreign firms and companies to stop helping Iran in ways which could lead to the development of nuclear weapons. Had they been honest in their claims, why do they target Iran’s food, communication, housing, pharmacy and oil sectors? What do these industries have to do with nuclear weapons?

In a nutshell, UANI’s objective is to impair the Iranian nation. They already know that Iran does not seek nuclear weapons. UANI’s seeks a weak, demoralized and unstable Iran without an active role in the international community. UANI is not United Against Nuclear Iran, it is United Against the Nation of Iran.

  1. It has become a routine habit of the representatives of the US, Canada and the EU countries from every forum at which Dr. Ahmadinejad speaks. These idiots don’t realize that their action in fact prove that Dr. ahmadinejad is gets to their nerves by exposing their lies.

    Ironically, UANI is not the only arm of Israel Hasbara Committee. Israel and Jewish lobby groups spend million of dollars each year to demonize everything related to Islam and Muslims. They run over hundred think tanks from CFR to S.I.T.E; from Memri to Wikipedia; from Huffington Post to CSIS and from Daniel Pipes to Middle East Forum…….

    http://ehpg.wordpress.com/2010/05/04/the-neoconservative-i-e-jewish-zionist-think-tanks-that-led-the-us-to-war-on-iraq/

  2. Very interesting video worth seeing:

    “Iranian Jews to Israel: Our National Idenity is Not for Sale”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vA7yz2vciGk

  3. After watching Ahmadinejad today as he has the confidence to point out the truth about 9/11..and watching our pathetic politicians “walk out” in a huff. Typical.

    It is getting too hot in the kitchen, each day more and more people from around the world are finally “getting it” The dirty ZIONISTS have taken over.

    Yes, Obama is their puppet. I am so tired of defending him. He is such a disappointment. YES, Hilary is in their pocket, and BIDEN is more than an “empty suit” he is an ignoramous.

    There you have it, the top three leaders are NOT working for the best interests of The United Sates of America. And, in this BIG PEACE MEETING they have the gall to turn their heads, AGAIN, about the illegal settlements.

    It is shameful.

    Trying to point a finger at IRAN as a terrorist nation is a joke, and whining about Iran’s nuclear program, while turning heads about Israel’s nuclear arsenal is a farce.

    Knowledge is power. Pass on the truth.
    Remember: God has no religion.

  4. Just another example of Jewish propaganda and aren’t they good at it. Well, money opens all doors so they say and with the kind of funding at UANI with the big spending Jews and all the support from the weak, insipid president of the Zionists, Obama, the campaign of hatred is under way, this time against Iran with the slippery hand of Netanyahu guiding the tiller.

    The mutually parasitic nature of the Israel / US relationship is unique as they both feed off each other, both having the same gutter values that “anything goes” and with the once ‘world’s most powerful nation’ now subservient to a devious Israel, the empire is starting to crumble. When you have to rely on lies and media manipulation to control the thinking of the sleepy residents of the US then you must work at this every hour of every day. To date these liars have had a charmed life but one day, as with Pearl Harbour, people will realize that they have been ‘taken over’ with the total connivance of a President, his Jewish Chief of Staff, AIPAC cheerleader Biden, an empty suit at any time, the ‘what can I do to help you, Bibi baby’ Israel-controlled Secretary of State Clinton, a disgrace by any standard and the recipients of graft and corruption in the Congress and Senate, puppets, no less.

    Then they may arise from their stupor and toss out their local grafter and look for a real, honest American patriot to supplant their current Jewish sycophant and move to make the country whole once again. Right now, no American could look anyone in the eye and say how proud I am to have a Commander-in-Chief like Obama the weak, timid puppet on an Israeli string and his cabal of ne’er-do-well staff, all serving the cause of an apartheid state.

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

    • Well said Rexw. Ur description of what’s happening’n who stand behind the debacle is correct. One of the goals of late financial FRAUD (not crisis) was to put Americans in a situation, where satisfying their most urgent needs, food’n shelter, become the PRIORITY above any other concern, excluding any rational-critical thought. Meanhile, using the bogeyman of “Islamic Terrorism”, the ZioMafia Dons’re implementing more retrictive domestic measures’n consolidating their grip-stranglehold on USA-EU-M.EAST.

  5. The completly insane gov of the u.s of a…. is the biggest threat to world peace….the only thing that can arrest this action is the will of the 300 million population. People power is what works in any country, why the people of america are sitting and taking this abuse is perplexing to say the least, they would not accept this behaviour from anyone else on the planet… so yes the question is why??? The cowardly acts of the us and western dips. walking out on an invited guest at the assembly is only proof that the accused are guilty. Ask any good shrink what this kind of action indicates. This does not excuse the fact that Iran is a country of mindset stuck in the backwaters of modern civil thinking people… what kind of a person can you find that is willing to pick up stones and hurl them at someone until their death? The kind that you should not want on the same planet as you. What kind of a person can you find that is willing to consider or condone this act of Barbarianism? The kind that you should not want on the same planet as you.

  6. This does not appear anywhere in my comment… your words, “that the Iranian leadership is hellbent on it’s nuclear arsenal,” obviously the “stormers” know they are wrong and “guilty” broncobilly “guilty” your the one who should not want these…. “some extremist reactionary types, conservatives, I will add.” on the planet with you
    why don’t you comment billy on the fact that your own country u.s. of a is so forked up and you are doing nothing about it….. except complaining about writing abilitys wow get a grip billy…..I am guessing that the “absolutes” are acceptible to you

  7. Tj, thanks, and good point. But, you say these condemnations are “the actions of some extremist reactionary types, conservatives, I will add.” Your belief this is so about conservatives is alarming insofar as the War Party is anything but conservative. To the extent they’re Republicans who’re not identifiable as neocons–a movement derived from Trotskyism–they’re statists every bit as evil as the social-engineering statists in the Democratic Party. Both are factions of one political philosophy, which is ever bigger government and control over our lives, all subsumed under the ultimate goal, which is serving Israel.

    Jon jon believes we can unite as a people: Vote the elected officials out of office, drive the bastards out of the myriad bureaucracies they infest, and neutralize the pernicious lies of the media, think tanks, and academic cesspools. None of this can happen because the subjugation of this nation is successfully perpetuated through every administration, regardless of party, through Zionist ownership of all mainstream venues of public discourse.

    What could be less conservative than Fox News? which the War Party has cynically positioned as the voice of conservatism in this country. They successfully encapsulate Israel-first propaganda by mendaciously sugar coating it in phony, flag-waving patriotism, family values claptrap, and incessantly equating our support for our troops with support these surrogate wars. No, the truth is that the likes of Fox News and its cabal of pundits like Rove and Gingrich are the enemies of the conservative movement in this country. You might take an occasional look at chroniclesmagazine.org for sophisticated arguments against the usurpation of leadership in the Republican Party by bona fide Trotskyites like the neocons, and imperial statists like Rove, McCain, and Gingrich.

    It comes down to this. No candidate can get by the Zionist media gantlet without demonstrating his or her undying loyalty to Israel, and willingness to bankrupt our nation to serve Israel’s goals. That is, nearly every official elected to national office is already an agent of Israel before the first TV ad runs. Once in office, Israel’s agents immediately start preparing dossiers to blackmail any member of Congress who dares to oppose their agenda.

    Half the national debt and current deficit go to pay for these wars bankrupting our country. The Federal Reserve is buying Treasury bonds with money created out of thin air to raise the cash for these wars. The bill will come due, and it will be borne on the backs of our children and for generations to come. We are being prepared to live in poverty because that will be the effect of serving Israel.

    As for the article, the fact that we will never read or hear such stuff in mainstream media outlets is all the proof we need that we are a subject people mistakenly believing our election process reflects the will of the people. It reflects the will of Israel and its fifth column who own this country, and this administration and Congress are its agents.
