Because the call for wholesale regime change largely comes from the outside, and without any linkages to the struggle for reform inside Iran, the country's reformist movement has distanced itself from the protests rather than try to give them direction and organization.

Above is a quote from a piece published by National Public Radio its author introduced as “Farideh Farhi is an independent scholar and affiliate graduate faculty at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.”

The absurdity of claim that wholesale regime change by Iranian protesters across Iran comes from outside, which matches verbatim to the charge by the Islamist fascist officials, is not the point of this blog.

The point is, NPR neglects to inform the readers and listeners about the actual identity of the author of the piece. In real life, as is her husband, this “independent scholar” is in fact a “former” official of the Islamist fascists.

This type of Iran related intellectual and journalistic dishonesty is nothing new, during the eight disastrous years of the Islamist appeaser-in-chief Obama, these Islamist fascist lobbyists and pseudo-intellectuals/scholars had free reign of the American media and access to the White House.

Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
