Iran: Dream of becoming a regional power

Senior official: Iran is becoming a regional power able to confront US with suicide operations


Iran’s nuclear issue is expected to be discussed at the Security Council in early May.

April 29, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – An Iranian television program aired an interview with Mohsen Rezai, secretary of the State Exigency Council.  This interview reveals some of the behind the scene discussions in between the high rank officials of Iran.

“The nuclear, human rights and long-range missile issues are all pretexts to prevent Iran’s progress.” Rezaie said. 

“But we are breaking the blockade. Our influence in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf region shows that we are transforming from a national government to a regional power” Rezai bragged about Tehran’s active involvement in Iraq, Lebanon and other countries.  “A giant is slowly growing up in Iran, gaining dominance in its surrounding area. If it is empowered economically and technologically parallel to the political issues, after 20 or 30 years, when the west lifts its head, it will see that a small but regional empire has taken shape” he continued.

Referring to the transfer of Iran’s nuclear file to the UN Security Council by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) he concluded, “Therefore, the nuclear issue is a pretext to prevent Iran’s progress.”

Obese parrot, plump dogs and capitalism

The American Thinker

An article in yesterday’s British Guardian reported with some alarm that

obesity among Britain’s pets has become so acute that three-quarters of vets now run fat clinics to combat the problem.

So dire things have gotten that even the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals got into the act with its inspectors attending to several cases which involved not only dogs but also a donkey and a parrot. As a result, the esteemed Society felt compelled to urge pet owners

to watch the weight of their pets and to stop feeding them junk food. It cited the case of a dog that had grown to almost double its normal weight after being fed a diet that included breakfast fry-ups.

I just can’t stop marveling at the prosperity-generating power of capitalism.

Has there ever before been a socio-economic system where pet obesity reached epidemic proportions?

The first day of spring this year, the Investigative Magistrate, Jacques Antenen in Canton of Vaud of Switzerland, issued an arrest warrant for the murderer of my father Kazem Rajavi.  Very soon, the computer monitors of all police stations around the world will display the name and face of Ali Fallahian, the former Intelligence Minister of the Iranian regime.

This will be a proud moment to remember for the judge in the town of Lausanne for bringing once again the “historical” and the “judicial” truth together.  No intelligent service had any doubts in the involvement of Iranian senior officials in this murder.

The theocracy of Rafsanjani, Iran’s President at the time of my father’s assassination and the current chief of Iran’s Expediency Council, and his predecessors must now answer.  While the sentence came in late but it displayed the Judiciary’s independence since no governmental ranks of command was able to interfere.  This is also the result of Vaud’s police hard work.

Just before the death of Ayatollah Rohollah Khomeini and the death decree against Salman Rushdi, Islamic Regime had adapted East Germany’s Intelligent Services during the 1950s.

Israel will be annihilated in one storm, says Ahmadinejad

Israel iranTelegraph, Apr. 15- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran appeared to threaten Israel with a nuclear attack yesterday when he described it as a "rotten, dried tree" that would be annihilated by "one storm". In his most vitriolic and anti-semitic attack to date, Mr Ahmadinejad warned that Israel faced imminent destruction. While he did not refer explicitly to nuclear weapons, his reference to the "one storm" that would do away with Israel was seen as a code for nuclear Armageddon….

Speaking at the opening of a conference in Teheran to support the Palestinian cause, Mr Ahmadinejad repeated earlier anti-semitic attacks in Israel, questioning the scale of the Nazi Holocaust and attacking Zionism.

"Like it or not, the Zionist regime is heading toward annihilation," he said. "The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm."

And he poured scorn on the established history of the Holocaust, saying that an atrocity committed in Europe should be settled in Europe.
