Iranian Involvement, Reloaded  

activistchat.com, a blog devoted to Iranian freedom from theocratic Islamist rule, posts and translates a ‘resume’ distributed at an international conference held in Tehran dedicated to suicide bombing, as well as a brief description of the conference:

As part of the anniversary ceremonies of Iman Khomeini's death, an international gathering of candidates for suicide bombing will take place in Tehran under the title "Suicide in Tehran." The "Center for the appreciation of the Shahid" of the world Islamic Movement, declared today that an international gathering of "Shahids" (martyr bombers) is to take place with the objective of presenting suicide bombing as the most effective and influential method to compel occupying forces to flee Muslim territories. The ceremony will include participants from various Jihad movements and will take place on 02/06/04 in the AL-SHOHADAH HALL at 7th Batir square.

Besides the Name, Children, Birth Date and Location the only questions on the resume are:

What Martyrdom Operations are you Prepared For?

Against the Occupiers in Iraq ___________________________
Against the Occupiers in Jerusalem ______________________
Towards the Execution of the Fatwa against Salman Rushdie _________

I declare the above
And additionally I am interested in membership in the Global Islamic Martyrdom Brigades

Let’s be perfectly clear. This conference is openly advocating suicide attacks on American troops in Iraq, as well as suicide operations in Israel and against Salman Rushdie, author of The Satanic Verses. A conference of this nature could not be conducted without the approval of the ruling government of Iran, as Iran is essentially a police state. Members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards are attending this event, and it is highly doubtful they are doing this against the will of the Mullahs.

The government of Iran is our enemy, and there is no reason why the United States should engage in diplomatic relations with this terror sponsoring state. President Bush was correct when he included Iran as a member of the Axis of Evil. Iran is a manufacturer of WMD, a state sponsor of terrorism and it's pet terrorist organization Hezbollah, a terror sanctuary for al Qaeda, and a supporter of Shiite insurgent leader Muqtada al-Sadr in Iraq.

The War on Terror will not be won until Iran's terror sponsoring theocrat government is removed from power. We must support Iranian dissidents and student activists in their fight against the Iranian government.
