Ma'ariv Daily has reported that an Israeli retired officer sells weapons to terrorist groups in Iraq.Image

Shmoel Avivi, an Israeli retired officer, had established a firm in Iraq 2 years ago, which secretly sold arms to terrorist groups in Iraq, Ma'ariv reported.

Amnesty International reported that Avivi was one of the biggest weapon dealers in the Middle East.

Iraqi sources earlier announced that terrorist attacks in Iraq were backed by the intelligent agencies of CIA and Mossad and the secret agents of Iraqi former regime.

Earlier, Iraqi parliament security commission chairman Hadi Ameri had accused the occupying soldiers of secretly directing the terrorist attacks and forming terror squads in Iraq.

Not commenting on the story although I reject the CIA/Mossad link to terrorism in Iraq.

From the "about us" page:

PRESS TV is the first international Iran-based news network to broadcast in English on a round-the-clock schedule.

Our Tehran-based headquarters is staffed by media professionals from around the world. PRESS TV has an extensive network of bureaus located in the world’s most strategic places.

Iran based! I wonder if these are Persian moderates...

PRESS TV offers broad news coverage, specifically focusing on the Middle East.

PRESS TV dares to tackle the controversial global news agenda and broadcasts cutting-edge documentaries with political, social and economic contents.

PRESS TV’s goal is to present a deeper analysis of current affairs, aiming to show the other side of the story.

"The other side of the story." Hmm...that implies only one other side. I wonder if the state censors this...

Here is another story...

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution has praised the Strategic Foreign Relations Council for compiling fundamental strategic policies.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described the policies as helpful and essential for the country's future.

Addressing the members of the Council, Ayatollah Khamenei said setting the criteria for the 20 Year Prospect Plan is one of the most important responsibilities of the Council.

The Leader stressed promoting the Council and incorporating the viewpoints of well-known thinkers.

The Head of the Council and former Foreign Minister, Kamal Kharrazi, briefed the audience on the year-long performance of the body.

Er...nothing or odd about this story. :roll:

Hmm...didn't notice this story.

TEHRAN, Iran (Reuters) -- Iranian police have warned barbers against offering Western-style hair cuts or plucking the eyebrows of their male customers, Iranian media said Sunday.

The report by a reformist daily, later confirmed by an Iranian news agency, appeared to be another sign of authorities cracking down on clothing and other fashion deemed to be against Islamic values.

"Western hairstyles ... have been banned," the newspaper Etemad said in a front-page headline.

It came a week after police launched a crackdown against the growing number of young women testing the limits of the law with shorter, brighter and skimpier clothing ahead of the summer months.

Under Iran's Islamic Sharia law, imposed after the 1979 revolution, women are obligated to cover their hair and wear long, loose-fitting clothes to disguise their figures.

Violators can receive lashes, fines and imprisonment.
