This picture (according to 3arabtv.net) was taken after the bombing wherein President Ahmedinejad wept over the casualties during the commemoration of Fatima Al Zahra’s (The Prophet Muhammad’s daughter) death.The Weeping Ahmadinejad
According to PressTV “A bomb planted in a Mosque in a southeastern Iranian city near the border with Pakistan and Afghanistan has reportedly caused civilian casualties.
At least twenty people have been killed in the bombing in the city of Zahedan while more than fifty five others have been injured.”
This happened only yesterday, May 28th 2009, and already the internet is buzzing with theories as to who did it. Most are pointing at Israel, and rightfully so.
No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack and within minutes of the blast, a second explosive was defused at the Mosque.
This picture literally struck a chord with me, seeing that the media often portrays Mr. Ahmadinejad as a stoic, unmoving monster with no sense of humanity.
The man is much more than what the media shows us and has defied all instituted obstacles, made generally in order to demean and degrade him.
There are no leaders that can be compared to President Ahamdinejad, nor shall there ever be.
He is indeed, a real leader.
"Gunmen attack Ahmadinejad election campaign centre
TEHRAN : Gunmen attacked President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s election campaign centre in the southeastern Iranian city of Zahedan on Friday, wounding three people including a child, the official IRNA news agency said.
It said the gunmen, on motorcycles, opened fire at the centre at around 7:00 pm (1430 GMT) a day after a suicide bomber killed 25 people and wounded 125 others in an attack on a Shiite mosque in Zahedan.
Iran’s state-broadcaster said the pan-Arab television channel Al-Arabiya reported that the Jundullah (Soldiers of God) Sunni rebel group said it was behind Thursday’s mosque attack.
Zahedan is the restive capital of Sistan-Baluchestan province bordering Pakistan and Afghanistan....
Interior Minister Sadegh Mahsooli also pointed the finger at the United States and Israel.
“Enemies try to influence the election by terror, just as they did in Zahedan yesterday,” Mehr news agency quoted him as saying. “The terror agents are neither Sunni nor Shiite but American and Israeli seeking a Sunni-Shiite divide.”
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a statement read out by state television, urged restraint. “Those who committed this enormous sin may have done it out of anger and ignorance, but undoubtedly the hands of political planners in some interfering powers and their spy services are covered in the innocent victims’ blood.”--MORE--"
And for YOUR CONSIDERATION:
"Iran has more political freedom than many countries in the region"
EXCUSE ME? Care to ELABORATE on that a little?
No, they don't.
Good thing the U.S. never MEDDLES in others' politics, huh?

"[An] act of terrorism, means any activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping."
"The hope that Iranians will blame their own government for their hardships, and that their complaints will influence the regime"
Are we CLEAR?
The LEAST you could do, 'bamer, is CALL OFF the AMERICAN TERRORISTS!!!!!!!
