Code Pink leader Medea Benjamin and several so-called US anti-war activists including Gareth Porter participated and spoke in anti-US and anti-Israel conference in Tehran organized by factions affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.
Several Holocaust deniers spoke at the conference.
Via the Iranian-American Forum:
The Gateway Pundit contributor Kristinn Taylor wrote about this hate-filled conference in October 2014.
As The Gateway Pundit reported previously, the Iranian government’s conference was attended by anti-U.S., anti-Israel activists from the West. The conference’s opening speaker was Mohsen Ghomi, the personal advisor to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.
Benjamin’s comments about Israel controlling Congress and U.S. foreign policy echoed a similar statement by Ghomi at the conference who said “American officials are puppets of the Zionist lobby who are taking advantage of American ignorance.”
The interview opened with footage of Benjamin in action protesting in the United States, culminating in video of her famous (in the Islamist world) confrontation with President Barack Obama last year over his failure to close the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and his policy of killing Islamist terrorists by drone warfare. The intro had the feel of a jihadi video.
What the introduction (and interview) didn’t say is that Benjamin and Code Pink are players at top levels in the Democratic party and the U.S. government–and that Benjamin’s outburst against Obama was political theater straight out of the inside/outside game.
