Iran Points Finger at California

Says U.S. harbors terrorists in L.A.

West Side ’til we die!(2Pac Japan)

The latest front in the cold war between the United States and Iran is in a place about as far away from Iran as can be: Los Angeles. The Islamic Republic has accused the United States of providing sanctuary in L.A. to a group, called Tondar (which is Farsi for “Thunder,”) that plots and executes terrorist attacks on Iranian soil. For what it’s worth, the State Department does not classify Tondar as a terrorist group, and Tondar itself denies terrorist activity. A slightly mysterious organization, it claims to use peaceful means to work to replace Iran’s current government with a secular monarchy.

“Iran analysts said Tehran government may be pointing the finger at Tondar because it is politically expedient,” the article concludes.

One interesting tidbit: Among other incidents, Iran blamed Tondar for the murder of an Iranian physicist in January. This puts it at odds with Haaretz’s Yossi Melman, who believes the physicist was killed by some group whose prime aim is to slow Iran’s nuclear program; with the U.S. think-tank Stratfor, which blamed Mossad; and, of course, with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad himself, who, after a rigorous examination of the assassination, detected that the physicist was undoubtedly killed in the “Zionist style.” Which presumably involves—literally dozens—of bagels.

Precisely 613 bagels, if my Mossad source is not mistaken. And he (or she, it, doesn’t matter) would know.

West side b’shalom,
