The following is from a report on 60 Minutes II back in October of 2002. NITV is a California based Iranian-American TV station carried internationally via satellite with viewership in Iran.
And the mullahs really couldn’t take what NITV did on Sept. 11. Hours after the attacks, Zia [Ataby] took to the air with a message for Iranian youth: “To show your feeling and share your feelings with American people, come to the Mossani square in Tehran and bring your candle.”
They brought their candles and their voices, shouting, ”Death to terrorists.” Six thousand demonstrators were called to the streets of Tehran by Zia Atabay in North Hollywood, the only show of support for America in the Islamic world.
Note: I’ve tried searching for video of the orignal report but cannot find it. If anyone can help me out with that it would be pretty sweet. Thanks.
