Iran menaced by zionist attack as amrika openly backs rioters in Iran

If anyone needs more proof that the "green movement" is really to
destabilize Iran in preperation for an invasion read this. People
forget that the zionists running isreal are diehard warhawks who would
jump at any chance to attack Iran, and Mottaki and many inside Iran
realize this. Notice this is coming out as proof is coming out of
american backing of the green movement. The more this proof comes out
the more people see that clinton, holbrooke, gates, emmanuel, and others
are bigger niggers than the president.

Mottaki Downplays Israeli Attack on Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Wednesday
rejected the speculations that the US and Israel might launch an attack
against the country, stressing that the Zionist regime does not dare to
attack Iran.

We believe that the Zionist regime is not experiencing proper conditions
to dare to attack Iran, Mottaki told reporters in a joint press
conference with his Omani counterpart Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdallah here
in Tehran today.

The Iranian top diplomat also described the possibility of a military
attack against Iran's nuclear installations as media propaganda by the
Zionists and Americans which was heated during the presidency of George
W. Bush.

"Since its illegal establishment in the region, Israel has brought the
Muslim people of the region nothing but problem, annoyance, aggression,
terror and massacre," he added.

"Israel is a useless member which has been imposed on the region,"
Mottaki said, reminding that due to the aggressive nature of the Israeli
regime, it should always be watched and monitored.

Speculations that Israel could bomb Iran mounted after a big Israeli air
drill in 2008. In the first week of June 2008, 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15
fighters reportedly took part in an exercise over the eastern
Mediterranean and Greece, which was interpreted as a dress rehearsal for
a possible attack on Iran's nuclear installations.

Israel and its close ally the United States accuse Iran of seeking a
nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative
document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv
possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear
warheads.

Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program
is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has
always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of
Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

Iran has warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests
in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is increasingly questioning the
long-term stability of Tehran's government and moving to find ways to
support Iran's opposition "Green Movement," said senior U.S. officials.

The White House is crafting new financial sanctions specifically
designed to punish the Iranian entities and individuals most directly
involved in the crackdown on Iran's dissident forces, said the U.S.
officials, rather than just those involved in Iran's nuclear program.

U.S. Treasury Department strategists already have been focusing on
Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, which has emerged as the economic and
military power behind Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

In recent weeks, senior Green Movement figures -- who have been speaking
at major Washington think tanks -- have made up a list of IRGC-related
companies they suggest targeting, which has been forwarded to the Obama
administration by third parties.

Names on the list include Iran's largest telecommunications provider,
Telecommunication Company of Iran, which is majority-owned by the IRGC,
and the Iranian Aluminum Co. A U.S. official involved in Iran said the
administration wouldn't comment on whether it was acting on the
information.

American diplomats, meanwhile, have begun drawing comparisons in public
between Iran's current political turmoil and the events that led up to
the 1979 overthrow of Shah Reza Pahlavi.

"In my opinion there are many similarities," the State Department's
chief Iran specialist, John Limbert, told Iran-based listeners this week
over U.S. government-run Radio Farda. "I think it's very hard for the
government to decide how to react to the legitimate and lawful demands
of the people."

Since the opposition movement's demonstrations recently peaked after the
death of reformist Islamic cleric Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, a
number of Iran scholars in the U.S. said they have been contacted by
senior administration officials eager to understand if the Iranian
unrest suggested a greater threat to Tehran's government than originally
understood.

"The tone has changed in the conversation," said one scholar who
discussed Iran with senior U.S. officials. "There's realization now that
this unrest really matters."

In a signal of the White House's increased attention to Iran's political
upheaval, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gathered over coffee at the
State Department this week with four leading Iran scholars and mapped
out the current dynamics, said U.S. officials. One issue explored was
how the U.S. should respond if Tehran suddenly expressed a desire to
reach a compromise on the nuclear issue. Mrs. Clinton asked whether the
U.S. could reach a pact without crippling the prospects for the Green
Movement.

U.S. allies are mixed in their response to the new focus. One senior
Arab official said he told State Department officials this week they
were deluded if they though Iran was close to experiencing a revolution
reminiscent of the Shah's overthrow. "The IRGC has its hands on the
Iranian people," the official said.

Israel, which faces the greatest security threat from Iran, says only
widespread sanctions will effectively upend Tehran's current political
leadership. "Many Israeli experts have concluded that expansive
sanctions will widen the schisms between the Iranian government and its
people," said Israel's ambassador to Washington, Michael Oren.

Senior U.S. officials stressed in interviews this week that President
Barack Obama isn't moving toward seeking a regime change as its policy
for Iran. Rather, these officials said, Washington remains committed to
a dual-track approach of pursuing dialogue aimed at ending Iran's
nuclear program while applying increasing financial pressure if the
talks fail.

Both the Obama administration and the Iranian dissidents have been wary
of any direct contacts, due to fears such meetings could provide
ammunition for Tehran. The regime and its supporters continue to put
harsh pressure on the Green Movement; on Friday, progovernment
demonstrators shot at a car carrying a leading opposition figure, Mahdi
Karroubi. He escaped without harm, his Web site reported later.

Still, the White House's re-evaluation of the Green Movement marks a
significant evolution of Mr. Obama's Iran policy since demonstrators
began openly challenging President Ahmadinejad's re-election in June,
said diplomats and analysts.

"The Green Movement has demonstrated more staying power than perhaps
some have anticipated," said a senior U.S. official. "The regime is
internally losing its legitimacy, which is of its own doing."

The White House initially displayed caution in lending any vocal support
to Iranian protesters, as many U.S. and European officials believed
Tehran's security forces would quickly suppress any wide-scale dissent.
U.S. officials repeatedly stressed over the summer that the U.S. was
prioritizing efforts to negotiate with Iran on its nuclear program over
any rapid push for democratic change.

The U.S. response was so timid that some Iranian protesters openly
challenged Mr. Obama. "Obama, Obama -- either with us, or with them!"
Tehran demonstrators were recorded chanting in November.

U.S. officials say that the White House's policy has shifted, in part,
due to the surprising resilience of the Green Movement in the face of
the pervasive crackdown.

The Obama administration has increasingly voiced support for human
rights in Iran as the demonstrations have continued. Mr. Obama used his
Nobel Prize acceptance speech last month to forcefully call for the
respect of human rights and civil liberties.

U.S. officials cite the White House's public mourning of Mr. Montazeri's
death as perhaps the pivotal step in trying to forge common cause with
the opposition.

"Do we expect the current government to be overthrown? I wouldn't say
that at the current time," said a senior State Department official. "But
a crack can certainly grow over time."
