From Iranian Regime Compares Mubarak to Hitler at Anniversary Protest

In January 2009, the Iranian regime-run news agency reported that the Islamic Republic was offering a one million dollar reward for the assassination of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

They still want him dead.

This reward sign was seen at a protest today. (ISNA)

They hate him for his relationship with Israel.

Experts: Israel’s Cyber-Defense Can Stop Stuxnet Worm

Posted by Glezele Vayne on October 4, 2010


This just keeps getting better everyday. — Ellie Katz

by David Lev

There are tens of thousands of attempted virus attacks on Israeli systems each week – but Israel is “well-equipped” to fend off an onslaught of computer viruses, such as the one that has plagued Iran in recent months, experts say.

Iran has been struggling to control a virulently destructive, surprisingly agile computer virus known as Stuxnet, which has invaded – and hijacked – over 30,000 computers in Iran. Unlike standard viruses, Stuxnet is especially destructive, as it attempts to take control of a computer’s programmable logic controller (PLC), which runs supervisory control and data acquisition software (SCADA) of machinery and industrial systems, like the ones that control manufacturing, energy production, and other critical infrastructure.

Bushehr Technician

Stuxnet is seen as especially sophisticated, as well, because the PLCs it attacks – it seems to favor systems made by Germany’s Siemens, which, by coincidence, are heavily used in Iran – are based on obtuse programming language, not on Windows or Linux, like most viruses. And, according to security experts, Stuxnet has the ability to hide its tracks – erasing traces of its activity recorded in computer logging systems – making detection all the more difficult.

Coding of Virus Attacking Iran May Refer to Queen Esther

Posted by Glezele Vayne on October 3, 2010


By Maayana Miskin

Iranian Intelligence Minister Heider Moslehi said Sunday that his country is under cyber attack, and blamed the United States and Israel. Iranian officials initially admitted that their country had been hit by the Stuxnet computer virus, but insisted that the damage was minimal.

Iran has been forced to push back the opening of the nuclear plant in Bushehr. Senior Information and Technology official Hamid Alipour admitted that while Iranian officials had hoped to clean up the virus in under two months, that hope had been proven unrealistic. “The virus is not stable, and since we started the cleanup process, three new versions have been spreading,” he said.

Stuxnet hit Iran much harder than any other nation, affecting an estimated 62,000 systems. A total of 100,000 computers are thought to have been hit with the virus worldwide. The virus was made to target software created by the German company Siemens; Iran relies heavily on Siemens systems.

Israel has been among the top suspects in the creation of the Stuxnet worm, due both to Israeli opposition to Iran’s unsupervised nuclear program, and to the complexity of the virus, which experts say could only have been created by a team with significant funding, resources and expertise.

Anthropology Professor: Look at US Actions, Not Words

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 15, 2010


by Derek Cling

Israel National Radio’s Tamar Yonah recently interviewed Anthropology Professor Francisco Gil-White, who specializes in anti-Semitism, the Arab-Israeli conflict, US geopolitical behavior, and the operation of the Western mass media. He discussed the motives and interplay between the International community, the United States, Iran and the Muslim regimes.

Gil-White who edits the website “Historical and Investigative Research,” where he writes documented articles on geopolitical behavior, with a special emphasis on its repercussions for the State of Israel, explains that the official pronouncements of the United States concerning Iran seem to be one of opposition to that country’s policies, “though, of course, other than words, it’s unclear what exactly the U.S. has been doing in order to harm Iran.”

At the same time, he says, official American representation also leads the public to believe that “the U.S. government is watching over Israel like a guardian angel, making sure that it has its best interests at heart when making geopolitical decisions.

“And then you’ve got an incredibly aggressive push in the last year from the Obama administration demanding that Israel reach a final status agreement with the Palestinian Authority, PLO [and] Fatah, to create a Palestinian state in strategic Israeli territory.”

The common interpretation that makes all these pronouncements consistent with one another, says Gil-White, is one where “Iran is a big danger, but the PLO has nothing to do with Iran and really means to make peace with Israel – and that’s why the U.S., which opposes Iran and has Israel’s best interests at heart, is pushing for a two-state solution between Israel and PLO Fatah.”

Based on his research, however, Gil-White claims that, in fact, the PLO Fatah has a close relationship with Iran. “The U.S. government is obviously aware that this relationship exists, and therefore, when it pushes for a Palestinian state run by PLO Fatah, it is really installing an arm of Iran inside the Jewish state,” says Gil-White.

“There’s no question that the U.S. government, the most powerful actor in the geopolitical arena, is the one leading this process – it knows what it’s doing,” he says. According to Gil-White, the U.S.-led diplomatic “so-called Peace Process” was forced upon Israel, and started with the Madrid conference [in 1991] that Israel reluctantly agreed to while under threat from the United States to lose a lot of its economic support and then led to the Oslo Peace Process. This is “the only reason the PLO is inside Israel borders right now,” he concludes.

Moreover, this process of the so-called diplomatic peace effort is manifest today “in the recent very aggressive diplomacy that the Obama administration has directed against Israel – apparently building Jewish homes in Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish State, is offensive to the American President.”

Based on his research on HIR, Gil-White also points to the fact that the U.S. does not, in fact, oppose Iran, but rather, supports it. The fact that the “peace” process weakens Israel, and rewards Arab terrorism and Islamic power is not such a contradiction “if you study the last 30 years of geopolitical relationships between the U.S. and Iran,” he says, “Year after year, ever since Ayatollah Khomeini. took power in 1979 — the outbreak of the Islamic revolution — foreign policy has always been designed to strengthen Iran. Of course, the American government’s public declarations are always of enmity towards Iran, but saying something is very cheap – it doesn’t cost anything.”

For many years, the Shah of Iran, Iran’s previous leader who was trying to westernize Iran, was a close ally to of the US government, Gil-White explains, and “the CIA built the Shah’s security service, Chavak, which was infamous for its violence, and its trampling over every single Iranian liberty. It was only in the last couple of years or so of the Shah’s rule that the US seemed to abandon him.” Then-US President Jimmy Carter started to take actions against the Shah, who was supposedly the America’s “westernized” ally because “the US wanted a regime change in Iran, and wanted the mullahs and the Shah out. One hypothesis is that the US had decided to follow a policy of sponsoring Islamic fundamentalism,” he says.

“One of the reasons why doing that was a smart idea in geopolitical terms is that the entire belly of the Soviet Union was populated – the Asian belly of the Soviet Union – with Muslims. Radicalizing those Muslims was a way of destabilizing the Soviet Union and this is something that worked very well in Afghanistan for example,” says Gil-White, “This is where Osama Bin Laden got his start – working for the CIA, training Afghan mujahideen inside the Pakistani border with Afghanistan and they set up a bunch of madrasas where people would be indoctrinated to the most fanatical Islamist ideology, and then they would be sent back into Afghanistan as terrorists to destabilize the Afghan regime – and this is what eventually produced the Soviet invasion in a debilitating war that helped destabilize the Soviet Union. This has actually been confessed to a French magazine by Zbigniew Brzezinski. who was Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser at the time.”

The NYT reports that Iran moved its nuclear material to a place we can easily bomb

Posted by avideditor on February 27, 2010

The jihadi loving paper that lies to promote the enemy agenda is now reporting this

” But the simplest explanation, that the Iranians had no choice, has its proponents. The fuel is stored in one big, specialized cask. When someone ordered that the fuel begin being fed into the giant centrifuges for further enrichment, engineers moved it to the only spot available — the exposed plant. Or, as one American intelligence official said, “You can’t dismiss the possibility that this is a screw-up.” read the rest

I personally do not trust the NYT or think dinner jacket is that stupid. In case I am wrong on the first account bomb Iran now. Incase I am wrong on the second account. Then Jihadis please find your closet gun and shoot yourselves in the head. I heard Allah wants to meet you 😉

This is a country that follows the Koran to the letter,
rejecting Islam and its authority means death
Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati:
Bring back the good ol’ days
Reinhard informs the Tundra Tabloids that Jannati’s use of the Koranic verse 5:33, is of importance, since 5:32 is used by apologists for Islam in promoting the myth that Islam is a religion of peace:
5:32: ‘For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s sovereignty), but afterwards lo! Many of them become prodigals of the earth.’
5:33 ‘The only reward for those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom…’
We in the counterjihad know better, as the texts themselves prove, that the killing of the infidel is not only sanctioned by the Koran, it’s repeatedly sanctioned by the Koran, which is just another way of underlining the precept. Remember, this is the verse used to show that Islam is a religion of peace. Unbelieveable. KGS

Standoff in Iran Deepens With New Show of Force

[…] The government and its hard-line supporters continued to rely on force, and the threat of force, to quell protests and demand loyalty, while the opposition refused to back down. There was no indication that compromise was on the agenda.
During Friday Prayer services in the capital, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, a fundamentalist cleric who leads the powerful Guardian Council, called protesters ‘flagrant examples of the corrupt on Earth’ and effectively urged that they be executed as ‘in the early days of the revolution.’

Iran sets deadline for the West

Posted by avideditor on January 3, 2010

Iran sets deadline for the West: “

Iran warns West it will make its own nuclear fuel.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran set a one-month deadline Saturday for the West to accept its counterproposal to a U.N.-drafted nuclear plan and warned that otherwise it will produce reactor fuel at a higher level of enrichment on its own.

The warning was a show of defiance and a hardening of Iran’s stance over its nuclear program […]

‘We have given them an ultimatum. There is one month left and that is by the end of January,’ Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said, speaking on state television.


Consequences of Obama’s idiotic desire to ‘talk’. They’re definitely mocking him with the ‘deadline’.

How the World will go along with Iran getting the bomb

Posted by avideditor on January 3, 2010

Roger Simon lays out a scenario in which Iran obtains international support for its quest for a nuclear bomb.

Act two starts with the regime announcing that the increased security threat it faces is forcing it to withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 90 days and build nuclear weapons, as permitted by article ten of the treaty. At this point, the Iranians will be ready to quickly roll out not one, but perhaps several nuclear weapons. John Noonan writes that Iran’s investment “far exceeds what’s needed to turn on the lights, but it’s also beyond what’s needed for a basic nuclear weapons program.” He also notes that Iran’s program is a lot more extensive than that of North Korea, and that “Iran is pumping billions more into building and protecting triple the number of facilities required to build a basic nuclear weapon.”

Maybe they’ll say that bullying rhetoric from Israel and the U.S. is forcing them to “change their defense strategy,” as Vahdati put it. Or, in a crafty use of irony, the regime could use an Israeli strike to prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons to justify obtaining nuclear weapons. “We were innocent and didn’t feel like we needed them when Israel bombed us, but now we do need them after faced with such aggression,” the regime will try to cry out.

The attacked Iranians will win the sympathy of the Muslim world and may even offer to give up their weapons if Israel also agrees to do so, among other concessions. And you can bet there will be those in the West that will buy the line that this wasn’t the plan all along, will blame Israeli and Western aggression for Iran’s decision to make the bomb, and will argue that the only solution is to make the Iranian government feel less threatened.

President Ahmadinejad is already laying the groundwork to justify the future construction of nuclear weapons, even while insisting that is not his current intent.

Read the whole thing. Plausible? You bet it is.

Israeli Defense Chief: Iran Can Build Bomb by 2011
Monday, 28 Dec 2009 07:55

Israel Radio reports that Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Iran will have the technology to build a nuclear bomb early next year and will be able to produce one in 2011.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak delivered this assessment before the Israeli parliament’s defense and foreign affairs committee.

The Defense Ministry said it could not confirm the report, and a Barak spokesman wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Israel rejects Tehran’s claims that its nuclear program is designed to produce energy, not bombs. It has lobbied for tough sanctions against Iran and has not ruled out a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities.

Iran is under pressure from its domestic opposition and the West to suspend key parts of its nuclear program.

Revolution In Iran

UPDATE Ahmadinejad AKA Dinner Jacket kills four protestors so far in a jihadi attempt to destroy freedom

Witnesses: Iran’s police deployed to stop protests

Iran’s Green movement prepared for street protest against hardline regime mullahs

Not Your Mother’s Student Movement: ”

It’s not even a student movement anymore. It’s a force of nature. Watch this old lady lead a group of people in chanting anti-regime slogans on a bus in Tehran yesterday:

Today is the big day. It is 7 days after Montazeri’s death, so it is an official day of mourning. It is also the biggest holiday of the year (Ashura) for Shia Muslims, and the protests which are to take place have been planned for weeks, unlike the spontaneous ones which erupted last week. People have also been protesting late into the night the last two days.

You can see in the above video all the Basijis moving in. They have been brutal these last two days, and that’s just toward Khatami and the memory of Montazeri, whose house they vandalized yesterday.

As far as their treatment of the people, a group showed up on the 22nd to protest the hangings of some young men and ended up beating back regime forces to save them. (Warning: graphic.)

Basiji forces killed a protester in the ensuing melée:

The Washington Times is calling the situation ‘Iran’s Perfect Storm.’ This should get very interesting pretty soon.

I will be keeping tabs when I can tomorrow.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “Death to Israel”

Posted by Glezele Vayne on November 2, 2009


Ahmadinejad can claim he only means to encourage a “regime change” in the region of Eretz Israel, that there is no such phrase in Farsi that would approximate the concept of wiping a nation off the map, thus he can hide behind linguistic technicalities. I have been wondering about this myself, though in either case, the man is not sounding too friendly towards the nation of Israel.

There are those who argue this point, but others are quick to point out that though that exact phrase was not uttered, that it was closer to “disappear from the pages of history”, Mr. Ahmadinejad was not using a passive tense, but an active tense, indicating more of an aggressive stance than he will admit to in the American press.

Well, there is no misunderstanding Mr. Ahmadinejad’s words in this video: “Marg bar Israel” or  “death to Israel”. Chas v’Shalom

So for those wondering if Mr. Ahmadinejad or the Iranian mullocracy is such a threat to Israel,  I think the answer is obvious.
