Only one mass media outfit, Daily Mail, pretty despised as a yellow tabloid, published this news item:
An Iranian strategic expert has warned that one of President Obama's daughters will be kidnapped and raped if America attacks Syria.The man was pretty meticulous about his other plans for responding to American attack on Syria:
'Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],' he threatened.Being (as an Elder) naturally suspicious, I have traced the links to the source, Farsi site of the "strategic expert". The picture of the POTUS with his family jumps out at you:
'In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world]'
As published by Reza Kahlili,"“We should remind Obama that if you are a bastard, there are other bastards all around the world who can rape [assault] Sasha.” The statement is written in both English and Farsi, but in the Farsi version, Forghani clearly stated that Sasha will be raped by someone who has been able to get close to the Obama family."Now, this discrepancy between the Farsi and the English text is a great opening for Juan Cole and his ilk to look for a mistranslation, so I am copying the original Farsi text at the bottom of this post. I guess that Cole's version of "assault/rape" will be "befriending" or summat... My attempt for translation using Google says "rape" clearly and unambiguously.
Beside his masturbatory fantasies of revenge, Mr Forghani appears to be a strategic thinker of the first degree. Reza Kahlili has more to tell about the genleman:
Forghani, though not holding an official position within the regime but in a country that tightly censures the media, has stated his radical positions in articles that have been run by the majority of the regime’s media and has written several commentaries on the need for the destruction of Israel. One such article described the need for the Islamic Republic to have nuclear weapons and in another he laid out the legal case for the annihilation of Israel and all Jewish people. The latter, which ran in all of the regime’s media outlets, called for a pre-emptive strike on Israel. Based on this pre-emptive doctrine, he suggested, several “ground zero” points of Israel must be destroyed and its people annihilated.While the masturbatory qualities of these articles cannot be disregarded, in another article Reza Kahlili noticed that:
The article, written by Alireza Forghani, an analyst and a strategy specialist in Khamenei’s camp, now is being run on most state-owned sites, including the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars News Agency, showing that the regime endorses this doctrine.Back to the rape threat: interestingly, none other MSM outfits seemed to pick up this item so far. I would understand if everyone considered being fare above such dirty gossip. But are they really? Dunno...
