Agents of the Ayatollahs – CASMII’s links with the Iranian Regime
The Campaign Against Sanctions & Military Intervention in Iran (CASMII) was founded by Abbas Edalat in 2005. CASMII is the leading lobby group in the USA and UK which campaigns in opposition to punitive action against the Iranian regime. Its speakers appear regularly in the media. CASMII works closely with a number of ‘anti-war’ groups, including the Stop the War Coalition.
CASMII claims to be “independent of all political groups and governments, including the Iranian government”, but a number of its senior members are in fact agents of the Iranian regime. Tellingly, the group’s website, www.campaigniran.org, was formerly hosted by the same company, Patrix LLP, as that of the Iranian Embassy in Britain.
The founder of Patrix LLP also happens to be on CASMII’s International Steering Committee, which comprises the following individuals:
- Abbas Edalat
- Phil Wilayto
- Mohammad Kamaali
- Foaad Khosmood
- Nader Sadeghi
- Shirin Saeidi
- Reza Shirazi
