Iran Uncovers US (And Zionist) ‘Plots’

From Press TV:

Iran’s Intelligence Minister Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei

Iran uncovers plots in presidential election

Wed, 24 Jun 2009

Iran’s Intelligence Ministry has uncovered ‘terrorist’ plots targeting the country’s security and stability during the presidential election.

"The ministry has dismantled the groups involved in such activities and has arrested almost all group-members in two stages," IRNA quoted Intelligence Minister Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei on Wednesday.

He said that the plots included bomb attacks on several sites in Iran, adding that those behind such activities were linked with "the Zionist and non-Zionist regimes outside the county."

One of the targets, Mohseni-Ejei said, was the holy shrine of the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini. After the plot was foiled, the assailant detonated the bomb outside the shrine and "a number of people have been arrested regarding the suicide bombing," he added.

The Intelligence Ministry and the police also seized a group who were planning terrorist activities in the East of the country and confiscated their equipment.

"The police also captured another group, which planned to carry out a terrorist act in the city of Tabriz when one of the presidential candidates wanted to make a speech there," he explained.

"Some other terrorist groups in the south of the country especially in Ahvaz were identified and nabbed before they could carry out any activities," he went on to say.

According to the intelligence minister, the US and some western countries were aiming to achieve unrest in Iran’s elections atmosphere.

When asked by a reporter about the arrest of foreign spies working under the guise of reporters, Mohseni-Ejei said, "Anybody who embarks on espionage activity in the country will be arrested. A foreign reporter has so far been nabbed and another one has been questioned and his things were confiscated."

The Iranian government has arrested a reporter working for the Newsweek and another one working for the Washington Times.

What a shock this news is.

We thought that Mr. Obama’s fair and even-handed treatment of the Iranian election would prevent such conspiracy theories.

Undoubtedly, this will all be sorted out at the US and Iranian Fourth Of July parties.

Certainly the arrested reporters and their families must be relieved knowing Mr. Obama is in charge.

    Did they use “waterboarding” or was it electrodes wired to the genitalia that got info out of people who had no idea what a plot was?

    So this accusation against the US of fomenting revolution in Iran is the new result of electing Barry, eh?

    Funny…in 8 years of having President Bush at our helm, not once did foreign enemies claim we were doing such things. Now, however, after falling for the bribe of “Hope and Change”, we are accused of covert nation-building. Barry could easily get us into a war by fumbling and hiding, whereas President Bush’s clear leadership had us involved only in the places he said we would be: Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I sure miss George Bush.

    How soon until Iran officially attacks Iraq or Israel? They need a distraction from internal politics and a new enemy to unite the people against. The ‘America is the Devil’ thing isn’t working as well as it use to. Besides, Iran can not allow two democracies to flourish on both their borders. It is too much inspiration for the people to rebel.

    Then there is the irony in the arrests of Newsweek and Washington Times reporters. Those liberal slugs have been in denial for so long about what a dictatorship is like. That is big heaping dose of reality for them to swallow. Perhaps they will now get some hands-on knowledge of what really constitutes torture, although I pray that water boarding would be the worst they would receive, I doubt it.

    I thought with our Muslim in Chief we didn’t have to worry about stuff like this. I guess he didn’t bow deep enough to the Saudi king. The despots of the world know that King Barry is a weak sister and that they can do just about anything they want without fear of retaliation. I’m sure the only reason he even let the SEALs take out those pirates was because one of his “advisors” told him it would look good on TV.

    “According to the intelligence minister, the US and some western countries were aiming to achieve unrest in Iran’s elections atmosphere.”

    o-blah-blah: Well! They’ll only be one hot dog for you, mr.intelligence minister. And no .. uhhhhh .. chips or dessert.”

    “Then there is the irony in the arrests of Newsweek and Washington Times reporters.”

    And yes, Banned, there really is some irony in that little problem isn’t there. I certainly hope the best possible outcome for them; but indeed, surprise, surprise.

    Besides, wasn’t it the “Newsweek”‘s editor that proclaimed o-blah-blah “so above, even the world.Like .. he’s a god.”

    So o-blah-blah oughta have this little “blip” resolved before dinner, dontchya think???

    God bless the reporters, tho’ – they’re just some useful idiots. We’ll need to pray for them and their families. Gotta be scary!

    Iran reminds me of Orwell’s 1984 in so many ways…

    The people are kept from engaging with the rest of the world by the continual fear and conspiracy theories of their government…a war against their own people.

    The Iranian government knows that the United States has nothing to do with this. Nothing. And they know that Khomeini and his political elite rigged the votes.

    But there must always be someone to pin the blame on, to cover up Iran’s atrocities against its own people. In the death of Neda, it was not government basij but a “secular marxist” terrorist group. The death toll was not 100 + but 10 if you watch Press TV. And even pictures of pro-Ahmadinejad protests were photoshopped to appear as though they contain more people.

    Iran is the king of lies and most Iranians know it. The rest of the world does, too.

  7. Chinnubie says:

    Rigged election is putting it mildly. In effect the mullahs decided who would be the next president of Iran plain & simple. As far as the voting in Iran it is just an action in futility. There was never a count of votes they simply had the boxes of ballots brought to a secure location then they were all burned or however they destroy documents in Iran. I’m sure they were sitting there with different results to release and chose the one that Amadinajid would look best, in their minds. Bottom line this is the result and anyone who doesn’t like it better get out of the way because a bullet has your name on it.

  8. BatK says:

    Well I guess it looks bad when you claim “God” determines the election results and yet you have to cheat to advance the outcome…

    I wish Israel would take a tip from my mom, “HERE’S SOMETHING TO REALLY CRY ABOUT!”
