TEHRAN, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Western powers like the United States and Israel that they would face the wrath of Muslims following the devastating bombing of a Shi'ite Muslim shrine in Iraq.
Echoing Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Ahmadinejad pinned the blame for Wednesday's Samarra shrine bombing on "Zionists" and foreign forces in Iraq.
"These heinous acts are committed by a group of Zionists and occupiers that have failed. They have failed in the face of Islam's logic and justice," Ahmadinejad said in a speech broadcast live on state television.
"But be sure, you will not be saved from the wrath and power of the justice-seeking nations by resorting to such acts," he said to cries of "Death to America" "Death to Israel" from a crowd of thousands of supporters in central Iran.
Khamenei, who has the last word on all state matters in Shi'ite Muslim Iran, on Wednesday urged Shi'ites not to take revenge on Sunni Muslims for the attack on the Samarra shrine.
"There are definitely some plots to force Shi'ites to attack the mosques and other properties respected by the Sunnis," he said. "Any measure to contribute to that direction is helping the enemies of Islam and is forbidden by Sharia," he added.
Khamenei ordered a week of national mourning in Iran over the bombing.
In Beirut, Lebanon's Hizbollah group called for Muslim unity in the wake of the mosque bombing.
"I tell the Americans, the Zionists and the criminals who committed yesterday's crime in Samarra that all your aims will fail," Hizbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah told a rally attended by thousands of Lebanese Shi'ites in the southern suburb of Beirut.
"I tell them that this (Muslim) nation will not be torn apart ... It will not fall for the tricks of the occupier."
Hizbollah, a Shi'ite guerrilla group backed by Iran and Syria, has opposed Washington's role in Iraq. The United States lists Hizbollah as a terrorist group and has called for it to be disarmed in line with a 2004 U.N. Security Council resolution.

Iran continues to shrug off Saturday's UN Security Council resolution which imposes sanctions against the country for refusing to end nuclear enrichment.

Iranian leaders have condemned the resolution as illegal. And President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has also hinted the resolution could alter Iran's relationship with the UN's nuclear watchdog, the IAEA.




Gholam Hossein Elham, Iranian government spokesman, said, "We have a legal movement in our nuclear activities which is in line with international treaties. We've acted legally, under the supervision of the IAEA and within the framework of the law."

The thrust of the sanctions is a ban on imports and exports of materials and technology relating to uranium enrichment, reprocessing and heavy-water reactors, as well as ballistic missile delivery systems.




Mohammad Shabastari, Iranian resident, said, "Sanctions will not affect us at all because we have been under sanctions for years, and sanctions will only increase solidarity between the people and the government."

Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani says the country will respond to sanctions but by pressing ahead with plans to install 3,000 centrifuges by March at its pilot plant in Natanz.

On Monday, several Tehran University students rallied outside offices of the multi-national petrochemical giant, Shell company. They've called on their government to restrict the economic and commercial activities of countries, which voted against Iran in the UN Security Council.

Ahmadinejad claims Iran's new missile is capable of hitting Israel
« Reply #2 on: May 20, 2009, 08:11:33 AM »
Nico Hines `“ Times Online May 20, 2009

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed today that Iran has successfully test fired a new medium-range missile capable of striking as far as Israel or southern Europe.

The Iranian President told a cheering crowd that the military had launched a surface-to-surface missile called Sejil-2 which has a range of about 1,200 miles.

`I was told that the missile is able to go beyond the atmosphere then come back and hit its target. It works on solid fuel,` Mr Ahamdinejad said during a speech in Semnan, northern Iran.

`The defence minister told me today that we launched a Sejil-2 missile, which is a two-stage missile and it has reached the intended target.`

The weapon is an updated version of the Sejil missile, which Iran said it had successfully tested late last year.

The announcement comes two days after President Obama said he would seek deeper international sanctions against Iran if it shunned American attempts to open talks on its controversial nuclear programme.

In the past, Iran has often boasted of developing new weapons systems, only to be met with scepticism from Western defence analysts.

Benjamin Netayahu, the new Israeli Prime Minister, has said that Iran`s missile technology combined with its nuclear programme pose the greatest threat the Jewish state has faced since its creation in 1948.

Iran insists that its nuclear programme is aimed solely at producing electricity for a growing population once its huge reserves of fossil fuels run out. Israel and other states suspect that it is a cover for attempts to create a nuclear weapon.

The UN Security Council has imposed three packages of sanctions against Iran after it ignored successive warnings to suspend uranium enrichment.

But Mr Ahmadinejad insisted once again today that Iran would not give in to any pressure over its nuclear programme. `They (Western governments) said if you don`t stop, we will adopt (sanctions) resolutions... They thought we would retreat but that will not happen,` he said. `I told them you can adopt 100 sets of sanctions, but nothing will change.`

Sejil, the name of the new missile, is a reference to the stones hurled by holy birds sent to defeat an army of elephants in the Koran.

Fairly obvious spin here from a J**ish reporter for a Murdoch rag. Under the NNTP, the USA is obliged to help Iran with its attempts to build a power station. The UNSC sanctions were the handiwork of the USA threatening and bribing to get its way, like a typical spoilt brat, on behalf of the School Bully.

The reference to this is Surah 105 (Al Fil: The Elephant). I don't know whether the birds were holy; they didn't hurl anything - I don't think birds can, but they certainly dropped things like buzzards do with tortoises. And the army wasn't of elephants but of Abyssinians - specifically the army of Abraha Ashram, the Abyssinian governor of The Yemen (whence they came, c. 570 AD) - which had one, or possibly more, elephants in its train (cf Hannibal crossing the Alps). The phrasing adopted by this Hines strikes me as being unnecessarily pejorative.

And here's the way the AP spins it:


Iran says it tests missile, Israel within range
AP


Iran test-fires new missile: Ahmadinejad AFP/Sepah News/File `“ Iran's Revolutionary Guards tested their medium-range Shahab-3 missile at an undisclosed location `¦
By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer Ali Akbar Dareini, Associated Press Writer `“ 2 hrs 55 mins ago

TEHRAN, Iran `“ President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran test-fired a new advanced missile Wednesday with a range of about 1,200 miles, far enough to strike Israel, southeastern Europe and U.S. bases in the Middle East.

The announcement will not reassure the U.S. government, coming just two days after President Barack Obama declared a readiness to seek deeper international sanctions against Iran if it shunned U.S. attempts to open negotiations on its nuclear program. Obama said he expected a positive response to his outreach for opening a dialogue with Iran by the end of the year.

"Defense Minister (Mostafa Mohammad Najjar) has informed me that the Sajjil-2 missile, which has very advanced technology, was launched from Semnan and it landed precisely on the target," state radio quoted Ahmadinejad as saying. He spoke during a visit to the city of Semnan, 125 miles east of the capital Tehran, where Iran's space program is centered.

Ahmadinejad is running for re-election in a June 12 vote and has been criticized by his opponents and others for antagonizing the U.S. and mismanaging the country's faltering economy.

Most Western analysts believe Iran does not yet have the technology to produce nuclear weapons, including warheads for long-range missiles. A group of U.S. and Russian scientists said in a report issued Tuesday that Iran could produce a simple nuclear device in one to three years and a nuclear warhead in another five years after that.

The study published by the nonpartisan EastWest Institute also said Iran is making advances in rocket technology and could develop a ballistic missile capable of firing a 2,200-pound nuclear warhead up to 1,200 miles "in perhaps six to eight years."

Iran says its missile program is merely for defense and its space program is for scientific and surveillance purposes. It maintains that its nuclear program is for civilian energy uses only.

The solid-fuel Sajjil-2 surface-to-surface missile is a new version of the Sajjil missile, which Iran said it had successfully tested late last year with a similar range.

Iran's nuclear and missile programs have alarmed Israel, and the country's new prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, pressed Obama to step up pressure on Tehran when the two met in Washington on Monday. Ahmadinejad has repeatedly called for Israel's elimination, and the Jewish state has not ruled out a military strike to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat.




There's the standard zioschtick about how Ahm. repeatedly called for Israel's elimination, and - see, stupid goyim - southern Europe is in range - he's probably going to bomb Italy!

He was warned in advance of those 77 bombings by Scotland Yard.  It was in all the media all over the world - and then they just disappeared the story and memory holed it, just like the Israelis who were warned in advance of the "Arab" hotel bombings in Jordan in 11/05 and all the Israeli involvement in the 911 false flag attacks.  Netanyahu was also supposed to be in NY on 911 but his trip was canceled.  He was a personal friend of Lucky Larry Silverstein, "Jewish Lightning" 911 profiteer.  They spoke by phone at least once a week.  They were also involved in criminal enterprises like international monety laundering in israel, and possible wholesale ecstasy narco distribution.  Netanyahu's first on the air, but unguarded, words following 911:  "This is good for Israel".

O PLEASE........I read the zio-hype as well but that's all it is.   So the Iranians are advancing in their rocketry skills, it is the logical next step.

If they didn't report it, then the press would say that Iran was secretly developing long range rockets when it's natural progression.

The Iranians are not going to stop their programs of defense just because someone doesn't like it, and they shouldn't.   

Truth is that israel and the US better mind their own damn business before they open up a can of whoop-ass they aren't even close to ready for.  Yea, israel can attack Iran with their 75 aircraft and do so serious killing in Iran, but no matter what they are hit with, the Iranians WILL survive and WILL respond any way they can.

If someone wants to bomb Iran, be assured that there are MANY in this world including myself who will come to action against the zionists and their supporters with money, arms and experience as necessary.

They will kill many Persians but in the end, israel will NOT exist, and America will not be in a position to do anything about it.

I'm sure you would geli,  I'm fairly clear where your loyalties lie. Actually, just the opposite is true.  I am an American Patriot that have always and will always work in the best interest of the United States.  An israeli attack on Iran is clearly not in the best interest of the United States by ANY account and is fully worthy of being deterred by any means possible.

I'm not worried about the United States getting involved in such a war, Americans will not tolerate it.  If israel attacks, they are on their own, zionists killing Palestinians is devastatingly evil, zionists killing Persians is ACTION!!

Iran Falling to US PSYOPS?

-Paul Craig Roberts
June 22, 2009

President Obama called on the Iranian government to allow protesters to control the streets in Tehran.
Would Obama or any US president allow protesters to control the streets in Washington, D.C.?

There was more objective evidence that George W. Bush stole his two elections than there is at this time of election theft in Iran. But there was no orchestrated media campaign to discredit the US government.

On May 16, 2007, the London Daily Telegraph reported that Bush regime official John Bolton told the Telegraph that a US military attack on Iran would `be a `˜last option` after economic sanctions and attempts to foment a popular revolution had failed.`

We are now witnessing in Tehran US `attempts to foment a popular revolution` in the guise of another CIA-orchestrated `color revolution`.

       It is possible that splits among the mullahs themselves brought about by their rival ambitions
       will aid and abet what the Telegraph (May 27, 2007) reported were `CIA plans for a propaganda
       and disinformation campaign intended to destabilize, and eventually topple, the theocratic rule
       of the mullahs.` It is certainly a fact that the secularized youth of Tehran have played into the
       CIA`s hands.

The Mousavi protests have set up Iran either for a US puppet government or for a military strike. The mullahs are in a lose-lose situation. Even if the mullahs hold together and suppress the protests, the legitimacy of the Iranian government in the eyes of the outside world has been damaged.

Obama`s diplomatic approach is over before it started. The neocons and Israel have won.


       The US intervention and the orchestrated disinformation pumped out by the western media are
       so transparent that it is impossible to believe than any informed person or government is taken
       in. One cannot avoid the conclusion that the West wants the 1978 Iranian Revolution overthrown
       and intends to use deception or violence to achieve that goal.

It has become increasingly difficult to believe that facts and truth motivate the western news media. For the record, I would like to point out a few of the most obvious oversights, to use a euphemism, in the Iran reporting.

       According to a wide variety of news sources (for example, London Telegraph, Yahoo News, The
       Globe and Mail, Asbarez.com, Politico), `Before the polling closed Mr. Mousavi declared himself
       `˜definitely the winner` based on `˜all indications from all over Iran.` He alleged widespread voting
       irregularities without giving specifics and hinted he was ready to challenge the final results.`

Other news sources, which might not have been aware that the polls were kept open several hours beyond normal closing time in order to accommodate the turnout, reported that Mousavi made his victory claim the minute polls closed.

       Mousavi`s premature claim of victory before polling was over or votes counted is clearly a
       preemptive move, the purpose of which is to discredit any other outcome. There is no other
       reason to make such a claim.


        In Iran`s system, election fraud has no purpose, because a small select group of ruling
        mullahs select the candidates who are put on the ballot. If they don`t like an aspiring
        candidate, they simply don`t put him on the ballot.


When the liberal reformer Khatami ran for president, he won with 70% of the vote and served from 1997-2005. If the mullahs didn`t defraud Khatami of his win, it seems unlikely they would defraud an establishment figure like Mousavi, who was foreign minister in the most conservative government, and is backed by another establishment figure, Rafsanjani.

       As Mousavi was seen as Rafsanjani`s man, why is it `unbelievable` that Ahmadinejad defeated
       Mousavi by the same margin that he defeated Rafsanjani in the previous election?


Neoconservative Kenneth Timmerman let the cat out of the bag that there was an orchestrated `color revolution` in the works. Before the election, Timmerman wrote: `there`s talk of a `˜green revolution` in Tehran.` Why would protests be organized prior to a vote and announcement of the outcome? Organized protests waiting in the wings are not spontaneous responses to a stolen election.

Timmerman`s organization, Foundation for Democracy, is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) for the explicit purpose of promoting democracy in Iran. According to Timmerman, NED money was funneled to `pro-Mousavi groups who have ties to non-governmental organizations outside Iran that the National Endowment for Democracy funds.`

The US media has studiously ignored all of these highly suggestive facts. The media is not reporting or providing objective analysis. It is engaged in a propagandistic onslaught against the Iranian government.

We know that the US funds terrorist organizations inside Iran that are responsible for bombings and other violent acts. It is likely that these terrorist organizations are responsible for the burning buses and other acts of violence that have occurred during the demonstrations in Tehran.

A writer on pakalert.wordpress.com says that he was intrigued by the sudden appearance of tens of thousands of Twitter allegations that Ahmadinejad stole the Iranian election. He investigated, he says, and he reports that each of the new highly active accounts were created on Saturday, June 13th. `IranElection` is their most popular keyword. He narrowed the spammers to the most persistent: @StopAhmadi @IranRiggedElect @Change_For_Iran.

He researched further and found that on June 14 the Jerusalem Post already had an article on the new Twitter. 
He concludes that the new Twitter sites are propaganda operations.


One wonders why the youth of the world, who do not protest stolen elections elsewhere, are so obsessed with Iran.

The unexamined question is Mousavi and his motives. Why would Mousavi unleash demonstrations that are obviously being used by a hostile West to discredit the government of the Iranian Revolution that overthrew the US puppet government? Are these the actions of a `moderate`? Or are these the actions of a disgruntled man who kept his disaffection from his colleagues in order to gain the opportunity to discredit the regime with street protests?

Is Mousavi being manipulated by organizations funded with US government money?

John Bolton laid out the US strategy. First we try to destabilize the regime. Failing that, we strike them militarily.


As this strategy unfolds, Iranians will pay in lost independence or in blood for the naiveness of its secularized youth and for the mistake the mullahs made in trusting Mousavi.

Mousavi's past raises questions

WASHINGTON
, June 24 (UPI) -- Opposition leader and former Iranian Premier Mir Hossein Mousavi played a role in terrorist attacks on U.S. targets in Lebanon, intelligence officials say.

Mousavi emerged from years of political exile as the top challenger to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the June 12 election. Mousavi was expected to go to a runoff against Ahmadinejad, though Tehran claims the incumbent won by a landslide.

Mousavi has become the face of the so-called Green Revolution of opposition leaders pushing for reforms in Iran. But during his tenure as prime minister in the 1980s, his reputation was not exactly benign, notes CQ Politics, an online news magazine.

Retired Navy Adm. James Lyons, who worked as an adviser to the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, says Mousavi personally selected the Iranian envoy to Damascus to serve as the director of Lebanese terrorist activity.

"The Iranian ambassador received instructions from the foreign minister to have various groups target U.S. personnel in Lebanon, but in particular to carry out a spectacular action against the Marines," said Lyons.

Lyons claims Mousavi was not the personal director of Lebanese operations. But Bob Baer, a former CIA officer working in Lebanon during the 1980s, says Mousavi played a much larger role in regional terrorism directed at U.S. targets.

"When Mousavi was prime minister, he oversaw an office that ran operatives abroad, from Lebanon to Kuwait to Iraq," Baer writes in the weekend edition of Time magazine.
