Some people disapproved of my mentioning of that fact when the mess in Tehran began.
Also, yesterday, Scheuer was un-excited about the prospect of a civil war in Teheran - why exactly? Too many Iranians would die - so the world is better off with a fanatic regime. How about the many dying under an oppressive regime? Would someone please tell fox news to stop interviewing that antisemite madman?
Barak: Do not be fooled by Mousavi
As the unrest following the outcome of last week's presidential elections in Iran continues, and with Mossad Chief Meir Dagan saying the Tehran riots will end in a matter of days, while former Military Chief Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash predicts the end of the ayatollahs regime, Defense Minister Ehud Barak warns the prophecies are often given to fools.
"This is undoubtedly a fascinating process, but I wouldn’t venture a bet on the final outcome," he said Wednesday.
In an interview with Army Radio, Barak said that like US President Barack Obama, he too sees little difference between Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his reformist rival Mir-Hossein Mousavi.
"Whatever happens, the regime is run by the ayatollahs. Don’t be fooled by Mousavi. These people are religious fundamentalists. What we are seeing in the streets is the true energy of young Iranians, who don’t want what happens – and they are being forcibly suppressed."
