U.S. Hatches Iran Murder Tale to Sow Suspicion; 'Deflect' American Public from 'Unrest'
Could it be that the United States
and the West is falsely charging Iran with plotting a terrorist attack against Saudi
Arabia and Israel in the United States? According to this editorial from Iran's
state-run FARS News Agency, the plot is a carefully planned attempt to deflect
attention from protests on Wall Street and sow suspicion of Iran in neighboring
TEHRAN: U.S. officials and
media have launched a new scenario against Tehran for a number of reason: to
divert global public attention from uprisings in the U.S. and Middle East; impose
new security measures in the U.S. to harness the Wall Street uprising; weaken trust
in Iran and its revolution around the region; and persuade U.N. Security
Council members to agree to a new resolution against Tehran in order push it into
a corner in nuclear talks.
As the Obama Administration grapples
with growing unrest and popular protest throughout the United States, the White
House launched this new campaign against Iran, alleging that the FBI and DEA
have broken up an Iranian plot to kill a Saudi envoy to Washington. FBI and DEA
agents alleged on Tuesday that they have disrupted a plot to commit a "significant
terrorist act in the United States" tied to Iran.
The officials claimed that
the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Ambassador to the United
States Adel Al-Jubeir
with a bomb, and subsequent bombing attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies
in Washington, D.C. The bombings of Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires,
Argentina were also discussed, according to the officials.
In an announcement today, U.S.
Attorney General Eric Holder
claimed that the plan was "conceived, sponsored and directed' from a
faction of the Iran government, calling it a "flagrant" violation of
U.S. and international law.
Hours later on Tuesday night,
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast dismissed the U.S.
allegations as a totally unfounded prefabricated scenario.
approaches based on the old hostile policies of the American-Zionist axis
are a comedy show and one of the special scenarios staged … by the enemies of
Islam and the region to sow discord (among Muslims)," Mehman-Parast said.
A look at the past reveals how
Washington and some of its allies, at sensitive junctures, have always hatched carefully
worked out psychological operations against Washington's foes.
In addition, a look at current
conditions in the Middle East and Western countries shows that America and its
allies are having a difficult time with popular uprisings - and not only those in Arab
countries: in the U.S. and several European countries, unrest has undermined American
policy, attracting global media attention and leading to the further isolation
of the Zionist regime.
Thus once again, the White
House is at a sensitive juncture and needs to divert global public opinion from
the suppression of the American people, other Western communities and protestors
in Bahrain, Yemen, and America's main ally in the region, Saudi Arabia.
And as usual, this new act
has appeared thanks to the tight collaboration of all Western media, which have
mobilized everything they have to convince the world to accept a huge and
At the same time, this new
act may serve to help the White House impose a new wave of security measures
across America and raise its terror alert condition in a move to more
effectively clamp down on protests against Wall Street, which have overwhelmed
In addition, the Obama Administration
believes that such a plot will help undermine trust in Iran and its revolution
around the region just as nations throughout the Muslim world are looking
toward Iran as a model, with a dozen having witnessed mass popular uprisings that,
as they themselves say, have all been inspired by Iran's Islamic Revolution.
This new plot may also help
the U.S. and its allies to exert added pressure on Iran during nuclear talks
between Tehran and the West. The plot has already provided a pretext for the U.S.
to seek a new round of sanctions against Iran, and the White House is hopeful of
persuading other U.N. Security Council members, especially Russia and China, not
to veto a new resolution against Iran.
Regardless of how successful
this new U.S. plot may be, nations should examine both sides of the story to
better understand the realities behind America's latest puppet show.
