Iran: US, Israel Behind Mosque Bombing

From the always trustworthy Islamic Republic News Agency:

Cleric: Clues of US, Israel’s involvement in Zahedan bombing discernable

Tehran, May 29, IRNA – Tehran’s Substitute Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said clues of the involvement of the US and Israel in the recent bombing of a mosque in Zahedan were discernable.

Talking to a large congregation gathered at Tehran University campus for Friday prayers, the Ayatollah condemned the bombing of a mosque in the city of Zahedan in southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan Thursday evening, which killed 25 and injured 125 others.

He said the powerful Islamic establishment in Iran will surely identify the elements behind the terrorist act and punish them.

Saying that the terrorist act wounded the hearts of all Muslims who were mourning on the demise anniversary of Hazrat Zahra (AS), the grand daughter of the holy Prophet of Islam, Hazrat Mohammad (SAWA), Ayatollah Khatami said the bombing aimed at spoiling the positive outcomes of the recent visit of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to Kordestan Province.

Ayatollah Khatami said both Shiite and Sunni Muslims will, through their vigilance, manage to foil the plot to pit the two branches of Islam against each other

It’s clear that Mr. Obama’s fresh new positive approach to Iran is paying great dividends.

Gunmen attack Ahmadinejad campaign office

Fri, 29 May 2009

Unidentified gunmen have reportedly opened fire on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s campaign outpost in the southern city of Zahedan.

According to Mohammad-Reza Zahed-Sheikhi, who presides over President Ahmadineajd’s election office in the Sistan-Baluchistan Province, three people including a two-year-old child have been wounded in the attack.

"Three motorcyclists carrying knives stopped outside the outpost and started cursing and ripping our billboards," Sheikhi said in an interview with IRNA.

He added that the men pulled out their guns and started shooting when some of the campaign staff rushed to protest.

Sheikhi said the men attempted to make a run for it, but were eventually arrested by police authorities..

How soon before these bravos also turn out to be US and Israeli cats paws?

    “Sheikhi said the men attempted to make a run for it, but were eventually arrested by police authorities..”

    So we’ll never hear from these fella’s again; nor, .. will they be slicing up Ahmadinejad campaign posters.

    Does it not look like the Assaholla Khatami gots some major dreads flowing from the facial area?

    This asshat knows full and well that his own people are at war with one another. As if the rest of the world didn’t know ……….. me thinks he was the substitute valve and gauge wiper in the nuclear core area of the peaceful reactor used only for electrical needs.

      He’s simply taking a lesson from our own beloved liberals’ methodology: If you say a thing loud enough and long enough, it becomes the truth and people, rather than thinking, hear and obey.

      They’ve already been taught to hate the US, as have all our own home-grown liberal vegetable matter, so can it be very hard to get them to believe the US is doing such things?
