by Gavriel Queenann

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday called on the interim junta in Cairo to rebuild diplomatic relations with the Islamic Republic, Reuters reports.

At a meeting with Egyptian academics, clerics and media representatives in Tehran, Ahmadinejad pushed his plan to rebuild links with Cairo saying cooperation between the two countries would give them “great power” and “drive the Zionists from the region.”

Honing terror’s dialectic

by Professor Eugene Narrett

The author sees a pattern of dialectic encounters in the world, planned cynically by the great powers.

The dialectic of managed terror, attrition and threats of major conflict is growing in the Middle East. The client states in the region now are grouped into two clearly identifiable blocs, one of which is escalating rhetoric and armaments at an alarming rate. One may feel, at least at the edges of consciousness a heightening of terror. When violence occurs, the major media, mouth pieces of the powers will urge salvation through regional solutions arranged by the Quartet and United Nations.

Threats and tensions have reached such a high level that a series of explosions at Iran’s main underground base, near Khorramabad in the western Iranian province of Lorestan, for the Shehab-3 ballistic missile, though “a devastating blow” to Iran’s offensive plans and pretensions is the least newsworthy of current events [1]. One could say that the non-coverage of this major event is in inverse portion to the posturing and hatred of those most effected.

During his two-day visit to Beirut, continuing the absorption of Syria and Lebanon by Iran, Ahmadinejad “announced the formation of a new anti-Israel Eastern Front encompassing Iran, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, the Palestinians and Iraq.” Amid the ranting against “the Zionist entity as the embodiment of the deception of the capitalist world order and [its] materialistic ideas,” [2] a phrase that could also have been written in Moscow or London, the Persian chieftain sketched two groupings that reflect the dialectic conflict of already extant encounters and future fighting.

Ambassador of death

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Sunday inaugurated the country’s first domestically built long-range unmanned bomber aircraft, calling it an “ambassador of death” to Iran’s enemies.

Speaking to a group of officials, Ahmadinejad said, “The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship.”

The goal of the aircraft is to “keep the enemy paralyzed in its bases,” he said, adding that the jet is for deterrence and defensive purposes.

The president championed the country’s military self-sufficiency program and said it will continue “until the enemies of humanity lose hope of ever attacking the Iranian nation.”

Minister, Make Your Decision…

An Iranian professor who teaches at a local major university and I have become good friends. I had earlier been invited to speak at his institution, where numerous students from the Middle East attend classes.

We have been discussing the recent events going on in his native land–events which especially pose a very harsh dilemma for Israel. Indeed, things happening in Iran right now make Israel’s choices only that much more difficult…
