Iran & Syria Behind Cartoon Riots

There is growing evidence supporting the suspicions of some that the recent riots over the Mohammed cartoons were planned and incited by Iran and Syria. Danish imams have clearly used at least three cartoons that were never published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. At least one of these three cartoons have been proven to be a complete forgery. The distinctive style of the forged cartoon (textured black & white rendition of a former color photo) strongly implies that a second cartoon is likewise forged since it exhibits the same distinctive style. The third cartoon is so childish and unsophisticated that it could have been drawn by any seven-year old jihadist.

It has become apparent that the most violent of the riots have taken place in Syria and Lebanon, which in itself seems suspicious to Bassem Mroue at CNEWS...
The fact that the biggest riots occurred in the Syrian capital and in Beirut also raised questions: Syria has an extensive security network to make sure that little happens inside its borders without the approval of the national leadership.

Mosque preachers in Syria have been rallying the faithful over the caricatures for days. Mahmoud Hussam, a Syrian lawyer who closely follows Islamic affairs, said he does not support violence but "it is a justified violence when our religion is under attack."

In the Lebanese attacks on the Danish consulate in Beirut, The Irish Times reported Here that the largest group of protesters appeared to be Syrian...
Security forces arrested 174 protesters - 76 Syrians, 38 Lebanese, 35 Palestinians and 25 stateless Bedouins.

It should be noted that there was a recent meeting of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus. According to a story by AFP, the two met in Damascus with the leaders of 10 radical Palestinian movements including Islamic Jihad and Hamas. It is quite possible that this current wave of riots was among the topics of discussion.

Motives? Ahmadinejad wants to divert the world's attention from his nuclear ambitions. Assad wants to divert the world's attention from his involvement in the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri.

But it doesn't appear that diversions will succeed. According to Gulf In the Media, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has voted to report Iran to the U.N. Security Council...

Read Ann Coulter's editorial today.
It throws a lot of light on the subject as only Ann can do.

Maggie (and Ann) are right. I think this too will backfire, as attention may be momentarily redirected, but only by reminding the world of how dangerous and volatile these leaders are, not to mention the dishonesty used to create these riots and the hypocrisy in their not-stop public attacks on Israelis.

Target rich environment. One of the real cartoons depicted the prophet with a turban that looked like a bomb. This was to indicate that the Muslims are violent. They proved that is not true by burning buildings and killing people.
No, wait...

I am sure of one thing, I would be hard pressed to find another incident which would better serve to unite the free world in the war on terrorism. Even the French, Spanish, and Danes are getting tired of having their freedoms dictated by the whims of hypocrites.

When it fizzles out and dies tehy will have done Irreparalle damage to their credibility, not only with Europe, but with American middle class moderates who think they are throwing a childish tantrum.

I think that all the froohaha over CARTOONS is the ultimate irony. I mean it's not like some head of state saying they want to wipe another country off the map and having those people riot and burn...

oh, wait.

sigh

Hey Rick!

Mack,
They've done harm to themselves & their credibility already, but I'm afraid that unless they keep shooting themselves in the foot, people will soon forget. So many seem to have short memories. Some people have already forgotten 9/11... hard as that is to believe.

Marge,
Funny comment... but it's just unbelievable that the world puts up with this kind of nonsense.
