Iran Preparing to Down Civilian Passenger Planes if its Nuclear Program Attacked

2 July, 2012

Nothing like trying to fight a gentlemen’s war with an enemy who still uses rocks to wipe his butt with:

Source: Iran preparing to down American passenger planes
By Reza Kahlili – DailyCaller

A source who served in Iranian intelligence says the Iranian regime is preparing to down Western airliners in case of an attack on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, has been preparing for war for some time as the Islamic regime closes in on developing nuclear weapons, says a source who served in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence and has recently defected to a country in Europe.

The source said the regime has taken several measures should war erupt:

  • Thirty-two command and control centers have been formed around the country so that the Guards and the Basij can act independently in battle. In case of a breakdown of communication with the central government, their orders are to suppress any uprising from within and confront any potential enemy.
  • All political prisoners and all activists within the country are to be slaughtered, as are those Iranian opponents outside the country, to ensure no viable opposition will remain to guide an uprising to overthrow of the regime.
  • Thousands of cells have been established in collaboration with Hezbollah to conduct terrorist acts against Israel, America and the West. One specific preparation, as discussed by the Guard commanders, is to target America’s civilian airliners in order to cause terror in the West.

[…]

The source [also] said that Iran is close to obtaining a nuclear bomb, which regime leaders believe will make them invincible. The source and others disenchanted with the regime also wonder why the West is vacillating and allowing Iran to pursue its destructive goals.

Muzzy Claims Da Vinci was Muslim

9 April, 2012

Of course a Muzzy would claim this.  After all, Muzzies routinely lay claim to just about every scientific achievement ever made (methinks they have an inferiority complex of some sort).   Don’t believe me?   Well, for instance, take a look at the “Jagged 85” Wikipedia debacle HERE.   That’s just right off the top of my head.  There are thousands more examples to be had.  

And now, you can add the following farcical sophistry to that ever growing list:

Da Vinci was a Muslim?

Author of ‘Leonardo Da Vinci’s Drawings’ says in this book he has proved that Da Vinci had been converted to Islam: “The book presents a comprehensive biography of Da Vinci and here for the first time I have proved that the artist had been converted to Islam based on authentic documents.”

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – Morteza Khalaj Amirhosseini’s book “Leonardo Da Vinci’s Drawings” contains best drawings as well as a detailed biography of this eminent artist. Based on valid sources, the book proves that Da Vinci had been converted into Persian.

Amirhosseini added: “I have prepared the book in order to address the needs of art students as there was no comprehensive book of Da Vinci’s works available in Iran. We should know an artist by his works, but unfortunately Da Vinci is just an icon in Iran with mythological fame.”

Amirhosseini went on to say that the book presents a complete biography of Da Vinci in which he has proved based on first-hand sources that the Renaissance artist had become a Muslim. However, the west prefers to keep silent on the subject, he added.

He added: “A French writer in the 19th century has evaluated the issue of Da Vinci’s conversion to Islam in a treatise, but the west has banned the publication of this treatise.”

Uh, yeah.  Right.  Sure there was.  LOL! 

Just more speciousness.   Notice that he conveniently forgets to mention the name of this supposed 19th century French writer.  That’s clue number one that he made it up.  Clue number two is that he claims the French treatise is banned by the west.  So, when you do come up empty-handed after an exhaustive search while trying to verify is assertion, well then…  It’s banned doncha’ know, and that’s, like, um, why you couldn’t find it anywhere.  Yeah, that’s the ticket!  LOL!

Iran: Morality Police Cracking Down on Barbie Dolls

Iran cracks down on Barbie, plans toys of captured U.S. drone

Reuters  Jan 16, 2012 – By Mitra Amiri

TEHRAN — Iran’s morality police are cracking down on the sale of Barbie dolls to protect the public from what they see as pernicious western culture eroding Islamic values, shopkeepers said on Monday.

[…]

“About three weeks ago they [the morality police] came to our shop, asking us to remove all the Barbies,” said a shopkeeper in a toy shop in northern Tehran.

[…]

The new order, issued around three weeks ago, forced shopkeepers to hide the leggy, busty blonde behind other toys as a way of meeting popular demand for the dolls while avoiding being closed down by the police.

A range of officially approved dolls launched in 2002 to counter demand for Barbie have not proven successful, merchants told Reuters.

The dolls named Sara, a female, and Dara, a male arrived in shops wearing a variety of traditional dress, with Sara fully respecting the rule that all women in Iran must obey in public, of covering their hair and wearing loose-fitting clothes.

“My daughter prefers Barbies. She says Sara and Dara are ugly and fat,” said Farnaz , a 38-year-old mother, adding that she could not find Barbie cartoon DVDs as she was told they were also banned from public sale.

Agreed!  BTW – I wonder how much the plastic surgery will cost to enlarge one’s head when Iranian girls begin experiencing inferiority complexes over having such small craniums:

Note:  Language/Sexual Content Warning – If you have small children, turn down the sound immediately following the Onion report on the Bratz Dolls (when the reporter starts talking about the Lexus recall).

[…]

As another swipe at the West, Iranians will soon be able to buy toy versions of the U.S. spy drone that it captured in December, Iranian media reported.

Models of the bat-wing RQ-170 Sentinel — which Iran’s military displayed on TV after it was downed near the Afghan border — will be mass produced in a variety of colours, reports said.

Iran Sponsored Bombings of Israeli Embassies in Washington, D.C. Thwarted by FBI and DEA

G.W. should have taken out Iran while he still had the chance:

Iran ‘Directed’ Washington, D.C., Terror Plot, U.S. Says

By RICHARD ESPOSITO and BRIAN ROSS – ABC News
Oct. 11, 2011

FBI and DEA agents have disrupted a plot to commit a “significant terrorist act in the United States” tied to Iran, federal officials told ABC News today.

The officials said the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, with a bomb and subsequent bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. Bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed, according to the U.S. officials.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in an announcement today that the plan was “conceived, sponsored and was directed from Iran” by a faction of the government and called it a “flagrant” violation of U.S. and international law.

“The U.S. is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions,” Holder said. He said the White House will be meeting with federal agencies before announcing “further action” in regards to Iran.

What about the U.S.’s commitment to hold you accountable for your treasonous actions, Eric? 

But, I digress…

FBI Director Robert Mueller said the arrest of a suspect in the plot shows the U.S. will “bring the full weight of [the] law to bear on those responsible” and that “any attempts on American soil will not be tolerated.”

[…]

The State Department has listed Iran as a “state sponsor” of terror since 1984. Officials in Argentina have said Iran was behind an attack on the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires in 1992.

Alleged Terror Plotter Claims He Was ‘Directed By High-Ranking’ Iranian Officials

The new case, called Operation Red Coalition, began in May when an Iranian-American from Corpus Christi, Texas, approached a DEA informant seeking the help of a Mexican drug cartel to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, according to counter-terrorism officials.

The Iranian-American thought he was dealing with a member of the feared Zetas Mexican drug organization, according to agents.

The DEA office in Houston brought in FBI agents as the international terror implications of the case became apparent.

The Iranian-American, identified by federal officials as Manssor Arbabsiar, 56, reportedly claimed he was being “directed by high-ranking members of the Iranian government,” including a cousin who was “a member of the Iranian army but did not wear a uniform,” according to a person briefed on the details of the case. Counter-terrorism officials said they believe the cousin may be part of the special operations unit of the Revolutionary Guard, the Quds force.

Arbabsiar and a second man, Gohlam Shakuri, an Iranian official, were named in a five-count criminal complaint filed Tuesday afternoon in federal court in New York. They were charged with conspiracy to kill a foreign official and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, a bomb, among other counts. Shakuri is still at large in Iran, Holder said.

The complaint also refers to another Iranian official but does not name him.

Iran Wussies Out; Won’t Send in Blockade Busting Flotillas

ROFLMAO!

Iran cancels plan to send ship to Gaza
Jun 26 2010 – via Breitbart

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran will not be sending a blockade-busting ship to Gaza in defiance of Israeli warnings, an Iranian lawmaker said Saturday, citing Israeli “restrictions.”

Mahmoud Ahmadi Bighash told the semiofficial ISNA news agency that instead of sending a ship, an Iranian delegation of lawmakers would travel to Lebanon and sail on one of the aid ships expected to head to Gaza from there.

The Iranian ship called “Infants of Gaza” had been expected to sail Sunday for Gaza carrying 1,100 tons of relief supplies and 10 pro-Palestinian activists but plans were canceled “due to restrictions imposed by the occupying Zionist regime,” Bighash said.

The mouse that roared. The Ayatollah and his threats

8 February, 2010

At one time, an Ayatollah brought respect, now they strut and squeak like widdle mice. Unable to stop growing unrest, economic collapse or contain the disgust of the civilized world, the senior islamic minions have a plan. Do something incredibly stupid and hope for an overreaction from the west. They need a common enemy before their islamic house of cards falls down around them.

08 Feb, 10, AFP
Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday that Iran is set to deliver a “punch” that will stun world powers during this week’s 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution, AFP reported.
-The Ayatollah is the senior shia cleric and head pedophile of iran.

“The Iranian nation, with its unity and God’s grace, will punch the arrogance (Western powers) on the 22nd of Bahman, February 11, in a way that will leave them stunned,” Khamenei, who is also Iran’s commander-in-chief, told a gathering of air force personnel according to AFP.
-Since we stomped the two largest islamic armies and have never lost a force on force battle with any size islamic force he is just blowing smoke out of his ass. (more…)

Obama’s Iran Dilemma and the death of mecca

30 September, 2009

A good analysis of some of the issues facing obama but a short sighted one. Mr. Crooke seems to believe this is all about regional power and I take a different view. While Iran built its military power to threaten Iraq and Saudi Arabia, now I take them at their word that Israel is their target. Notice I said target and not enemy. Israel is not strong enough to fight Iran. The distances are too great and their military supply lines could not support a war. Iran is capable of threatening Israel but for the same reasons it cannot fight them force on force. One simple nuke would give Iran a victory. It would cement Iran’s ruling clerics as heroes of islam and prove to the world and more importantly the Saudis that Iran is now a superpower. When the mythical mahdi fails to materialize the clerics will use his absence to recruit even more young muslim men to die. This time the wantabee jihadi will be told the mahdi will not show until Iran controls mecca. Where iran is concerned Israel is the target but Saudi Arabia is the enemy.

Subhed: The Real Issue Is Iran’s Emergence as a Regional Power, Not Its Nuclear Threat

Alastair Crooke, the legendary former British intelligence (MI6) agent, is author of “Resistance: The Essence of the Islamist Revolution.”

BEIRUT — It was pure drama: The leaders of the United States, Britain and France stepped onto the stage at the Pittsburgh G20 meeting last week to unveil Western intelligence that showed Iran had a second nuclear fuel enrichment facility under construction, which Iran had declared to the International Atomic Energy Agency the preceding Monday.

The Western leaders gathered in Pittsburgh implied that their revelation was devastating for Iran as a credible player. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates subsequently pronounced Iran to be “boxed in” and “in a very bad spot now.” But anyone who listened to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s interview with a Time magazine correspondent on the day of the presentation, and to subsequent Iranian statements, will be clear that Iran, at least, does not see itself as boxed in.
-Ackmynadsareinajar is just the shiny object used to distract the US all of its intelligence analysts and the losers in the UN, EU and most importantly the islamic nations. The clerics in iran call the shots and they do not want Israel, they want to be the voice of islam. Shia islam is out for blood-muslim blood. (more…)

Muzzie Political Bundler for Obama and Clinton, Hassan Nemazee, Indicted for Defrauding Banks $290 Million

U.S. charges Obama fund-raiser in $290 million fraud
Mon Sep 21, 2009

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hassan Nemazee, a fund-raiser for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats, has been indicted for defrauding Bank of America, HSBC and Citigroup Inc out of more than $290 million in loan proceeds, U.S. prosecutors said on Monday.

The announcement follows last month’s indictment of Nemazee, head of a private equity firm and an Iranian American Political Action Committee board member, on one count of defrauding Citigroup’s Citibank.

The new indictment adds allegations that he defrauded two other banks, Bank of America and HSBC Bank USA, in a similar fashion by falsifying documents and signatures to purportedly show he had hundreds of millions worth of collateral.

The office of the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan and the FBI said he used the proceeds of his scheme to make donations to election campaigns of federal, state and local candidates, donations to political action committees and charities.

He bought property in Italy and paid for maintenance on two properties in New York.

His lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment.

Leading Iranian Cleric Says Protesters are Worthy of Execution

Behold, the religion of peace:

Iranian Cleric Calls For Punishment, Says Opposition Leaders ‘Worthy of Execution’
foxnews

TEHRAN —  Iran’s increasingly isolated opposition leader effectively ended his role in street protests, saying he’ll seek permits for future rallies. A leading cleric demanded in a nationally broadcast sermon Friday that leaders of the unrest be punished harshly and that some are “worthy of execution.”

[…]
In Friday’s central Muslim sermon at Tehran University, a senior cleric, Ayatollah Ahmed Khatami, called for harsh retribution for dissent.

“Anybody who fights against the Islamic system or the leader of Islamic society, fight him until complete destruction,” he said in the nationally broadcast speech.

The cleric claimed some involved in the unrest had used firearms.

“Anyone who takes up arms to fight with the people, they are worthy of execution,” he said. “We ask that the judiciary confront the leaders of the protests, leaders of the violations, and those who are supported by the United States and Israel strongly, and without mercy to provide a lesson for all.”

Khatami said those who disturbed the peace and destroyed public property were “at war with God,” and said they should be “dealt with without mercy.”

He reminded worshippers that Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, rules by God’s design and must not be defied.

The cleric also lashed out at foreign journalists, accusing them of false reporting, and singled out Britain for new criticism.

“In this unrest, Britons have behaved very mischievously and it is fair to add the slogan of down with England to slogan of down with USA,” he said, as his remarks were interrupted by worshippers’ chants of “Death to Israel.”
