The US and Iran Declare each other Terrorists

Peas in a Pod

By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer


TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s parliament voted Saturday to designate the CIA and the U.S. Army as “terrorist organizations,” a largely symbolic response to a U.S. Senate resolution seeking a similar designation for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

The parliament said the Army and the CIA were terrorists because of the atomic bombing of Japan; the use of depleted uranium munitions in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq; support of the killings of Palestinians by Israel; the bombing and killing Iraqi civilians and the torture of imprisoned terror suspects.

“The aggressor U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency are terrorists and also nurture terror,” said a statement by the 215 lawmakers who signed the resolution at an open session of the 290-member Iranian parliament. The session was broadcast live on state-run radio.


The resolution, which urges Ahmadinejad’s government to treat the two as terrorist organizations, would become law if ratified by the country’s hard line constitutional watchdog but probably would have little effect as the two nations have no diplomatic relations.

The U.S. Senate voted Wednesday in favor of a resolution urging the State Department to designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization. Charged with defending the system put in place after Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Guards answer to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and are revered by many for their defense of the country during the 1980s war with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

The terrorist designation, the first such move against a foreign government entity, would cut the Revolutionary Guards off from the U.S. financial system and freeze the assets of its members or subsidiaries have in U.S. jurisdictions. It would also allow the Treasury to move against firms subject to U.S. law that do business with the Guards, which have vast business interests at home and abroad.

While the proposal attracted overwhelming bipartisan support, a small group of Democrats said they feared that labeling the state-sponsored organization a terrorist group could be interpreted as a congressional authorization of military action in Iran.

This is so silly…

And yet, no it’s not silly at all – because instead of two boys in a sand box whacking each other over the head with plastic shovels and miniature bobcats, we have two Big Boys with substantially larger and lethal toys, whacking at each other, threatening to wreck the sandbox – only their sandbox is populated by innocent people that inevitably will get squashed.

I wonder if they even thought about that?

Iran – the First Jewish State

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 16, 2007

Iran – the First Jewish State

According to journalist and author, Irshad Manji*, the official Wahabi teachings of Saudi Arabia are that the Shia brand of Islam is a Jewish conspiracy developed to divide Islam by planting Talmudic ideas into the minds of confused Muslims. As an offshoot of Judaism, Shias are considered dhimmis in Saudi Arabia, second-class citizens who along with Christians and Jews are stripped of their basic human rights. As such, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia should reconsider which Jewish state it should aim to oppose, Israel…or Iran.

The pathological anti-Semitism inherent in this ridiculous notion shows how endemic anti-Semitism is within the Arab and Muslim world. Even before the enthusiastic import of the fraudulent “Protocols of Zionism” which have been digested into accepted Arab discourse, there was sufficient anti-Jewish fodder within the Islamic texts to allow for Judaism to become an iconic source of evil. These of course all pre-date the creation of the Jewish State…of Israel that is, not Iran. Irshad Manji even quotes an example of one Arab-Muslim country where the Mullahs banned the Pokemon card and toy series because, they claimed, Pokemon means “I am Jewish” in Japanese.

The sad thing is, that like Medieval Catholicism, this pathological hatred only serves to bury its Arab and Muslim adherents even deeper within the bowels of ignorance. The real and eventual victims however, are as always the Jews. As with the Medieval and other contexts of intense anti-Semitism, we stand little chance of convincing our detractors of the errors of their beliefs. Any evidence aimed at contravening common, anti-Semitic notions are regarded as being nothing more than part of the broader Jewish/Zionist conspiracy. Any news medium arguing rationally how the “Protocols of Zion” were a Soviet fraud or that 20% of the victims on 9/11 were Jewish and did not stay home from work on the day of the attack, are merely co-conspirators peddling further propaganda which aims to protect their Jewish masters.

The Western World does not yet understand why Jews take those who hate them so seriously. If someone says that they want to kill us, we generally believe them. Only now, for the first time in 2000 years, we have the ability to protect ourselves.

The West doesn’t really get how deep the hatred for the Jews runs in the Arab World. Perhaps for the same reason it didn’t get what was going on in the Third Reich, until it was too late – it is unfathomable. In many ways it’s alien to any sensible person.  Fanaticism and fundamentalism is essentially the same thing – and there really is no difference whether it has political or religious under and over tones.It is a fact that antisemitism is being taught as a matter of fact in Islamist schools and society. It has nothing to do with the State of Israel, it existed long before 1948 in it’s own specific form – dhimmitude – the superiority of Islam over all other religious/political systems and the inferiority of anyone not Muslim. It existed in the Saladin Empire, it existed in the Ottoman Empire, and it exists in all the nations of the Arab League.

The question is – is the West aware of this? Are the Anti-Zionists/Pro-Palestinians aware that they will be forced to subject to a system that will put them in a position of permanent servitude in a Palestine ruled by Hamas or Hezbollah?
