Just blame the Jews

This is just fantatsic. Today is a day for comedy: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blamed the United States and Israel on Thursday for the destruction of a Shiite shrine's golden dome in Iraq, saying it was the work of "defeated Zionists and occupiers." Speaking to a crowd of thousands on a tour of southwestern Iran, the president referred to the destruction of the Askariya mosque dome in Samarra on Wednesday, which the Iraqi government has blamed on insurgents. "They invade the shrine and bomb there because they oppose God and justice," Ahmadinejad said, alluding to the U.S.-led multinational forces in Iraq.

"These passive activities are the acts of a group of defeated Zionists and occupiers who intended to hit our emotions," he said in a speech that was broadcast on state television. Addressing the United States, he added: "You have to know that such an act will not save you from the anger of Muslim nations."

Allright A.J. You looney bastard. I bet you are alone in this, right? Oh, wait, the moderate Sheikh Al Qaradawi agrees with you: "We cannot imagine that the Iraqi Sunnis did this," said the influential Sunni cleric Sheik Youssef al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian who lives in Qatar. "No one benefits from such acts other than the U.S. occupation and the lurking Zionist enemy." Hehe. Nice. The lurking zionist enemy did it. The Mossad agents in Iraq are behind this, just like they were behind 9/11. I mean, who else could it be, right? Damn, where would we be without the Jews? Ohh yeah, we would learn to take some responsibility for our own actions and hold those crazy jihady fuckheads accountable. Wait, that sounds dangerous. Ok, guess we will just blame the Jews. Safer that way!

It would be funny if it would not be the case that a certain amount of people actually believe this shit.

frankly, I think Ahmadinejaddog is behind all of this. Remember, the big buzz in the blogosphere last month was that Zarqawi had been read the riot act about how his violence had alienated Sunni and Shia alike and that he was to focus on attacking the "occupiers". Don't forget that Ahmadinejad also has most of the world harping about his nuclear project and Iranians at home and abroad militating against his repressive, financially incompetent/corrupt theocracy. And, perhaps most importantly, the loonie milenialist not only wants to hasten the appearance of the Mahdi, he also wants the Mahdi to appear on his home turf and the ruined shrine in Samara was among the likelier spots for such an event to take place.

And I'm sure he has both the money and the fifth columnists inside Iraq to manage something like this.

Sam, you've heard what the Bush administration and the pentagon are trying to re-name the "War on Terror"?

Welcome to "The Long War". It's a struggle like fighting communism was supposedly. I like how specific it is- an unending war against unnamed enemies.

I wish I felt like we Americans had a smart, workable plan against the WarOnTerror/ WarAgainstViolentExtremeism/ TheLongWar.

Sure! After all, when was the last time a Jew demanded to cut off someone's head just for drawing a cartoon?

Maybe this post will help. What do you think, Sandmonkey?

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is very audacious in his anti-Semitic rantings. It does not seem that he comprehends that diplomacy is a more powerful tool than strong words of political rhetoric.

Amid all the allegations that Iran is proceeding with a clandestine nuclear military program, I find it hard to believe that Ahmadinejad still insists on making bold anti-Western statements.

In essence, French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy cannot be excused for making such accusations given Ahmadinejad's threatening remarks.

However, it is safe to assume that Iran fully understands the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction. If one is to think of the worst case scenario, it is still difficult to imagine that Iran would use nuclear weapons against neighboring Israel since that would lead it to its own demise as well.

The majority of Arab countries are certainly against the establishment of the state of Israel - naturally. However, negotiations and diplomacy is the key here - not threatening (and possibly credible) remarks which could be self-destructive.

Ahmadinejad should tone it down if he does not want Iran to be the United States' next target.

Amidst this ridiculous finger pointing, a beautiful cultural and religious site is destroyed, and obviously someone is very much to blame!

But, the US? How many of their soldiers could easily pose as Iraqi police? Or, silently slip into a mosque of such importance?

How does taking pot-shots at innocent people, journalists, relief workers, construction crews amount to some brave insurgency against the occupying forces? People are justified to want the Americans out, but these attacks on the innocent, or against rival groups smacks of cowardly opportunism.

Everyone (who is in a government position anywhere) knows that aQ is the responsible party that destroyed the Mosque.

But they would rather use this disaster to further their own political adjenda.

While the average joe in the world, doesn't know but trusts his leaders and his media to find out and once again is lied to and misled.

No wonder there is so much distrust and violence.

@Blogspat. As per the 1948 war. Times have changed, Egypt has acknowledged Israel but other Arab countries have not - this is what I was alluding to.

if we ever get the facts we'll must likely find that Iran was behind the explosion....they have the most to gain from a civil war.
