    Ahmadinejad’s remarks about Israel once again started and international uproar in condemnations though some still are certain that he is crazy and these are not actual policies of the government he represents.

    Yesterday Ahmadinejade hosted Hamas leader in Tehran, repeating similar remarks about Israel.

    Hamas leader was also received by Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamanie who also made similar remarks.


    Today in Iraq, a moderate Sunni candidate is gunned down while a moderate Shiite candidate car is ambushed by a roadside bomb. Iran continues its support for Badr militia and some observers believe that Iran using, Badr militia, has now occupied Iraq.

    It seems that the days of Khatami with mirage of a moderation in Islamic world are passed. Today’s Iran government has evolved into a Fascist state terrorizing the whole region and the world.

    The tanker was seized in the evening by agents with the American-trained border protection force at the Iraqi town of Badra, after crossing at Munthirya on the Iraqi border, the official said. According to the Iraqi official, the border police found several thousand partly completed ballots inside.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq – The Iranian-backed militia the Badr Organization has taken over many of the Iraqi Interior Ministry’s intelligence activities and infiltrated its elite commando units, U.S. and Iraqi officials said.

    That’s enabled the Shiite Muslim militia to use Interior Ministry vehicles and equipment – much of it bought with American money – to carry out revenge attacks against the minority Sunni Muslims, who persecuted the Shiites under Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein, current and former Ministry of Interior employees told Knight Ridder.

    TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday the Holocaust was a myth, reiterating a view that has caused international uproar and drawn a rebuke from the U.N. Security Council.

    “They have fabricated a legend under the name ‘Massacre of the Jews’, and they hold it higher than God himself, religion itself and the prophets themselves,” he told a crowd in the southeastern city of Zahedan. Tuesday, 13 December 2005

    The state-run daily Hamshahri wrote on December 11, that the clerical regime’s judiciary had condemned a woman identified only as Masoumeh and resident of Varamin (near Tehran) to death by stoning. This is the second person sentenced to death by stoning in the past two months. More than 110 persons have been hanged or sentenced to death since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office. Several victims were under 18 years of age at the time of the alleged offence.
