Tehran, Iran, Jan. 03 - A senior Iranian official on Saturday met with the head of the militant Islamist Palestinian group Hamas as the group’s standoff with Israel entered into its second week. (why would Iran be meeting with Hamas, especially this official?)
Saeed Jalili, Secretary-General of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) and Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, met in Damascus with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, the government-run news agency Fars reported.
Jalili blasted Arab countries which “encouraged the Zionist regime [Israel] to attack” through their “silence”. (beware all that is not Persia or am I just imagining a veiled threat?)
Jalili met separately with Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah, the head of the militant group Palestinian Islamic Jihad, in Damascus. Shahllah is on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation’s most wanted list with a $5 million bounty for information leading to his arrest. (I'm sure they were just having coffee and donuts)
“With its latest crimes in Gaza, the Zionist regime has come one step closer to annihilation”, Jalili told Shallah, according to Fars. (so they threaten Israel again with annihilation as their Minister of nuclear weapons meets with Hamas)
U.S. President George W. Bush in his weekly radio addressed blamed Hamas for the violence in Gaza and southern Israel, after a week of Israeli air strikes and Hamas rocket attacks.
Earlier this week, the main Iranian resistance coalition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, urged the international community to condemn Tehran’s “warmongering and fundamentalist meddling in Palestine”. (yeah I bet the people in that group aren't hiding in fear of their lives)
“The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip and the killing of innocent civilians, in particular women and children”, it said, adding, “The mullahs’ ruling Iran are benefiting the most from this conflict and the crisis brewing in the region”. (crises what crises?)
“Facing fierce resentment and isolation at home, the mullahs’ regime believes that it can prolong its existence by exporting terror and fundamentalism abroad and taking advantage of the situation in Palestine and dominating the region”, the NCRI said. (especially if Israel is nuked)
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday left for New York where he plans to seek United Nations support to end the standoff. (yeah he's just fleeing the country)
The Iranians are dictating to Hamass exactly what and how to proceed. I'm sure there will be a move from Lebenon very shortly. If Iran puts a nuke in the hands of Hamass, and it's used, will the world condemn Iran? Hell will half the people on this Blog?
