When Hillary Clinton criticized the Bush Administration for “downplaying” the threats of Iran’s nuclear program and for letting European nations take the lead in negotiations, she forgot to mention that she has taken thousands of dollars from Iranian-Americans sympathetic to the radical Iranian regime of President Mahmoud Amhadinejad.
Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show that the New York senator took a $2,000 contribution in 1999 from the Nemazee Corporation, owned by New York financier Hassan Nemazee, who has ties to the pro-Mullah American Iranian Council.
The Nemazees have already donated $8,000 to Hillary’s 2006 Senate campaign, with $4,000 coming from Hassan Nemazee and another $4,000 from Nemazee Capital Corporation, made in the name of Sheila Nemazee.
Less than a year ago, a prominent Iranian activist named Gita Kashani, offered to host a big fundraiser for Clinton at her San Francisco Bay area home. The event got cancelled at the last minute when Bill Clinton underwent heart surgery. The point is that Kashani is a pro-regime, anti-sanction activist who is a former member of the board of trustees of the controversial Iranian American Political Action Committee. She is also a friend and admirer of Hillary Clinton’s.
