Shia vs. Sunni Jihad Comes to Washington

Violence between Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims goes back to Muhammad's companions, who slaughtered each other over their disagreements. But I'm sure we'll hear plenty about how this sort of violence has nothing to do with Islam.

Washington--Authorities foiled a plot that was directed by factions of the Iranian government to bomb the Israeli and Saudi Arabian embassies in Washington and a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday at a press conference.

A criminal complaint was unsealed in federal court in New York Tuesday naming Manssor Arbabsiar and Gholam Shakuri as the two alleged plotters, both with ties to Iran. Arbabsiar has been jailed in New York since September and Shakuri remains at large.

The complaint alleges that Iran helped conceive, sponsor and direct the plot. Holder called the alleged plot a "flagrant violation of U.S. and international law" and said the U.S. will hold Iran accountable.

Last spring, Arbabsiar met a number of times with a DEA source in Mexico posing as a member of a sophisticated and violent international drug-trafficking cartel, the complaint alleges. It was during these meetings that Arbabsiar allegedly offered the agent money to assassinate the ambassador. Arbabsiar allegedly wired $100,000 into a U.S. bank account in August as a down payment for the hit.

Shakuri, a member of Iran’s Qods Force, a special operations unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, allegedly approved the money transfer.

Arbabsiar allegedly confessed to his participation in the alleged plot. Shakuri is believed to be in Iran.

The two planned to use an explosive device to assassinate the ambassador, according to the criminal complaint. The alleged plot would have maimed others and damaged nearby structures in the surrounding area.

FBI Director Robert Mueller says many lives could have been lost in the plot to kill the ambassador with bombs in the U.S.

Arbabsiar, a naturalized U.S. citizen who holds an Iranian passport, allegedly expressed disregard for the collateral damage that the attacks in Washington would have caused.

The two are charged with conspiracy to kill a foreign official, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and conspiracy to commit an act of international terrorism and other charges. (Read more.)

I welcome this Jihad. They can do as much Jihad they want among them self as long as it does not involve us.

Another CIA bs and comedy. The American people are more and more waking up to this bs. While, yet still, far too many Americans still swallow this load of bs as our friend here, David Wood, did, but it is indisputable that more and more Americans are realizing that these so-called "terrorists" are no more than CIA agents. Either they're sell-out Muslims or they're Jewish or Christian Middle Easterns who work for the CIA.

More and more President Barack Obama seems to be slipping into becoming a puppet and a slave to the ruling Zionists, who anyway consider him "half slave half white!" I don't understand this man! We know he's not a Muslim, but still, we expected him, as a black man and a minority in this country that was founded and built on enslavement, hatred and racism against all blacks from the Founding Fathers all the way to the assasination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to be more fair to everyone. All he's doing is allowing himself to be played by the hands of the White Zionists who are ruling this country, and who really consider him as a nobody and an alias. Either Barack Obama is helpless, or he's a coward. I am afraid that he's the former and not the latter. Perhaps, this is why John F. Kennedy was assasinated. He refused to follow their orders. We don't know what's going on behind that dark and evil world of theirs, Zionism.

But even if Obama is afraid for his life, he is still expected to be a man and to speak up. Otherwise, what exactly is he the president of? My shoes?
