Leading American Leftists Sign Petition in Support of Iranian Regime’s Nuclear Ambitions

Former Democrat AG Ramsey Clark (R) and Sara Flounders (L), prominent US 99ers, launch a petition in support for Iran’s nuclear energy program. (Press TV)

Leading American leftists including members of the #Occupy Wall Street movement signed a petition this week in support of the Iranian regime’s nuclear program.
Fars News reported:

A large number of American peace and antiwar activists titled ’99ers’ signed a petition in support of Iran’s right to use peaceful nuclear technology and the country’s positions in the upcoming talks with the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) due in Istanbul late January.

In a meeting that was held on January 12, 2013 at Riverside Church in New York, on the occasion of the 85th birthday of Ramsey Clark, the former US Attorney General, which coincided with the 20th anniversary of establishment of International Action Center (IAC), Ramsey Clark and Sara Flounders, the co-founder of IAC, initiated signing a petition titled ’99ers on the negotiations of G5+1 with Iran’. The text of the petition which has been sponsored by a growing number of antiwar organizations including Solidarity with Iran – SI campaign and IAC is as follows.

As we approach the new round of negotiations between the G5+1 and Iran to discuss the so called ‘Iran’s nuclear issue’, we, the undersigned, declare our stand on this issue, as follows:

There are two sides in this dispute, one composed of the US and its allies in the European Union who accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons – without presenting even an iota of credible facts and supporting documents – and the other, Iran, which is striving to protect its right to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes based on provisions of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

    Of course he signed it given that he was the lawyer for the PLO for 30 years. He received money for 30 years for his legal services from a known terrorist organization. The question isn’t why is he supporting another terrorist regime but why isn’t he in jail.

    Lyndon Johnson and his administration were undoubtedly one of the most destructive to our Republic. Johnson really ushered in the current entitlement culture and appointed Communists(like Clark) to his cabinet , the cancer rooted with Lyndon.

    The guy’s always been a bit of a fruitcake. That he would be in support of something like this comes as absolutely no surprise whatsoever.

    So the left is only against the US having nuclear power and bombs?

  • YourMaster

    no, no… iran should never have nuclear ambitions…
    someone messed up the petition: it was supposed to ask:
    “Should we nuke Iran back to the stone age?”

    While virtually everyone here bows in obeisance to whatever utterrance Hoft decides to publish, I do not.

    If you have the time, you will understand that America is threatened by far worse of a situation. Israel has made its own bed in te Middle East – that is NOT our problem. If they can’t figure our the concept of “peace” – that is their problem.

    Iran has attacked no one for generations upon generations, while Israel and America have invaded everybody whenever. But as I recognize America’s right to defend itself, so I recognize Iran’s right to do so. Israel openly insists upon war with Iran – why wouldn’t Iran tell the Zionists (differentiated from Jews – for those who really understand), that war is in the offing? Any rational man would say the same to an adversary who threatened him.

    This issue is not about leftists or defenders of Iran or any of that nonsense – it is about Iran refusing to deal with the dollar as the medium of exchange for oil – as it was for our once ally Sadaam Hussein.

    That having been said, the absolute coward named Netanyahu will do nothing unless the US does something. That most reading this site think Netanyahu is a hero are simply delusional. I give Obama very little credit – he is jerk -but he is absolutely right about Israel’s pretensions and its refusal to meet its obligations.

    Israel has encroached on all land – not since 1967, but since 1948. They murder British diplomats at the King David Hotel, and they have been belligerent in every way. shape and form ever since.

    Their is no biblical justification – if one understands theology as do orthodox Jews, or orthodox Christians, one would realize the travesty Israel has become.

    I expect few if any to understand . . . those convicted are rarely converted to the truth. Israel acts like an ass, and sends us the bill.

    This petition is unnecessary. Obama and Hillary Clinton are acting more or less along the lines that the petition is urging.

    The world’s collective amnesia

    [“The fact that there are these refugees is the direct consequence of
    the act of the Arab states in opposing partition and the Jewish state.
    The Arab states agree upon this policy unanimously and they must
    share in the solution of the problem.”

    – Emile Ghoury, secretary of the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee,
    in an interview with the Beirut Telegraph Sept. 6, 1948.

    “The Arab state which had encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave
    their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab
    invasion armies, have failed to keep their promise to help these

    – The Jordanian daily newspaper Falastin, Feb. 19, 1949.

    “Who brought the Palestinians to Lebanon as refugees, suffering now
    from the malign attitude of newspapers and communal leaders, who
    have neither honor nor conscience? Who brought them over in dire
    straits and penniless, after they lost their honor? The Arab states,
    and Lebanon amongst them, did it.”

    – The Beirut Muslim weekly Kul-Shay, Aug. 19, 1951.

    “For the flight and fall of the other villages it is our leaders who are
    responsible because of their dissemination of rumors exaggerating
    Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame
    the Arabs … By spreading rumors of Jewish atrocities, killings of
    women and children etc., they instilled fear and terror in the hearts
    of the Arabs in Palestine, until they fled leaving their homes and
    properties to the enemy.”

    “The 15th May, 1948, arrived … On that day the mufti of Jerusalem
    appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the country, because
    the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead.”

    Wanna bet these lefturds’ parents andtheir ivy professors were loving on Hitlerand/or old Uncle Joe in the 1930s. This crowd has been clueless for generations and have always had the useful idiots of the media shilling for them & their treasonous totalitarian freedom hating goals ever since early 1800s.
    The American left loved the blood thirsty lawyer Jacobins, the Napoleons, the mad bureaucrat sausage maker Bismarck, and the insanity of Herbert Spencer’s Social Darwinism.
    American lib loons have fallen at the feet of every tyrant arond the world for the entire 223 years since the constitution which they aWnd their foreigh sponsors hate was adopted. It is no surprise they now cheer for tyrants such as the mad mullahs of Iran Chavez, and Ovomit.

    Deport them in permanent exile and strip them of citizenship down to the 1,000th generation. No travel visas, nothing. First catch on a return trip, execution without trial.

    Live or Commit Suicide. Do whatever it takes to do one or the other.

    Tribes used to kick people out permanently if they let a rogue bear trail them back to the main camp, or brought a serious disease back.

    It’s over. No more insipid games.

    Talk about comic relief! Hooo-boy!

    You know your history about as well as Obama! From Truman’s dispensationalism that led to much of this mess in ’48, which Hoft’s own faith denies, to the Zionism that is not Judaism (do a little investigation instead of merely repeating the errors of others) . . .

    I by no means approve of the radical Moslem agenda in the Middle East, but I by no means approve of the radical Zionist agenda, either. If one has but a clue to Christian theology, one would know that Israel lost its claim to the land with the appearance of Jesus, who prophesied the very present situation.

    That pre-millenialists and other Christians who are completely ignorant of Scripture rally in favor of those who take advantage of such total ignorance, is hardly surprising. The Apostle Paul spent quite some time and many words in his Epistle to the Romans trying to explain matters to you, and others, and still, you and folks are absolutely clueless.

    The dispensationalists got it wrong; Revelation’s prophecy is happening, and America is on the wrong side of matters. While I decry it as a theologian, and try to force myself from laughing as a theologian, virtually all of what is defined as “Christian” in the Middle East is simple false, or mis-leading, and killing Christians. And we, sitting safely here in America, pretend otherwise, imagine ourselves wise, and condemn Christians to death as we supporting the unsupportable.

    Wonderful! And just who are you defending? And on what basis?

    Amazing – absolutely amazing . . . but Jesus predicted such ignorance.

  • JR

    JB – “Iran has attacked no one for generations upon generations”
    Really? 1979? US embassy? Ringing any bells yet? Hezbollah? Hamas? Syria? Who do you think supplies most of the terrorism in the region? Poor, innocent Iran. HA! You’re an idiot.

  • jb


    I won’t ask your age.

    1979 was Iran taking back what our flip[ping CIA took from them in 1953, if you had a smidgen of history from which to deal. The Shah was far more corrupt and dictatorial than Saddam ever pretended to be, and that is a simple fact. That Iran took our embassy hostage – wow – our gummint does that very thing to its own citizens every day!

    Hamas – Syria? Who tells you such stuff? Oh yeah – the lame-stream media Hoft hates. It bothers me not that you use the word “idiot” since it is so much a part of yourself.

    And just “who” is it you are trying to somehow defend with your lame-ass response?

    Idiot is provable – the word means “one without knowledge.” You get the credit – all yours.

    And re-read – I did not say Iran did not respond to our (USA) disrupting their political process (and they had every right to do so), I said our CIA, as was and still is, quite usual, stuck its nose where it did not belong.

    Do yourself a favor and get the whole history straight.

    Like JR, who knows little of history, you appear to be willing to appear ignorant.

    Do you know the history of Vietnam? Perhaps you do, but your comment indicates you haven’t a clue.

    Clark is goofy – of course – but he is no less goofy than Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon who put both American and Vietnamese citizens in the sights of death for purely political purposes. I am a Vietnam-era vet. No – I did not go to ‘Nam (although I could have – I volunteered (draft number 190) (if you have a clue what that meant or means) . . . I was stuck in a Middle Eastern Moslem country, ferrying injured American troops that “were not in Israel” to Germany to get treated for the wounds they “did not get” “not fighting with Israel” in the Arab-Israeli War in 1973.

    I would really suggest you know and understand what it is you are talking about, before you talk about it.
