Dear Congresswoman Harman:


Major scandal erupts involving Rep. Jane Harman, Alberto Gonzales and AIPAC

Article by


Rep. Jane Harman , the California Democrat with a longtime involvement in intelligence issues, was overheard on an NSA wiretap telling a suspected Israeli agent that she would lobby the Justice Department to reduce espionage-related charges against two officials of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the most powerful pro-Israel organization in Washington.

Harman was recorded saying she would "waddle into" the AIPAC case "if you think it'll make a difference," according to two former senior national security officials familiar with the NSA transcript.

First, the views presented in this dispatch represent mine, and not those of my colleagues or institution that I have served for 30 years.


Second, I found your recent assertions on the Balkanization of Iran exceptionally offensive to the brave people of my birth land, Iran, the citizens of the United States and the world. As a Persian-American, this I know: It is patently clear that the era of being wined and dined by religious bigots is over in the United States. Several human-look creatures have suited themselves as United States congresspersons and senators for years, both as Democrats and Republicans. We appreciate that you speak for a special interest group with no decency to safeguard human life when its wicked interests are involved.


Third, as to your dim-witted opines, you must first study a few books on the history of Iran and the world to realize what outright religious bigotry and short-sightedness have tendered this world. I suggest you read the best seller types such as the books by Karen Armstrong, a British nun for 7 years. The brilliance that inscribed Holy War: The Crusades and Their Impact on Today's World certainly had you in mind as well.


Yet, I suggest you may see the Light more quickly here: It was Pope II in 1095 that asked the fighters to raise the Cross and the Swords to liberate Jerusalem in the hands of Moslems in relative tranquility for 460 years. Now that President Obama serves as a genuine leader of the United States to start a decent and civilized dialog with Iran, apparently your sponsors have started a fire under your Snake to convert you into a Dragon to launch a new set of wars only to shelter the wicked interest of the greedy thugs that drank the blood of the citizens of this world for years.




I am grateful that you just re-created me via your improvident remarks! While I will never stop to confound you with love unreserved, akin to the prescription that the Christ and other Prophets tendered, I will never cease to amaze you with the sky-high Spirits of typical Persian-Americans in driving you from a scared Office in Congress in Washington DC. Indeed, the world would be in a better place without you as a Congress Woman, and particularly, if you continue in pursuing divisiveness in America, and also serve, directly or indirectly, the interest of a few in Iran or Israel who never would or can appreciate the wisdom of harmony between the citizens of Iran and United States.


I suggest you contribute to the Residence of Peace to eliminate 26,000 nuclear bombs in 9 powers in this world, rather than igniting new hostilities. Blessings!

From The noble 13th century Persian Sufi poet Rumi:

"I go to a synagogue, church, and a mosque, and I see the same spirit and the same altar".


From The noble Persian Poet, Saadi of Shiraz (1184-1291 CE):

Human beings are members of a whole,

In creation of one essence and soul.

If one member is afflicted with pain,

Other members uneasy will remain.

If you have no sympathy for human pain,

The name of human you cannot retain.


From Mahatma Gandhi, the Great Soul of India & the world (10/02/1869 - 01/30/1948):

"Be the change you want to see in the world."


From Miguel de Cervantes, the Spanish novelist (September 29, 1547 - April 23, 1616):

I will act as if.... the ideals were real.
