TEHRAN'S PRICE FOR 'SOLIDARITY' - MULLAHS SEEK USEFUL MARXIST IDIOTS
New York Post ^ | 10/12/2007 | Amir Taheri

Posted on 10/13/2007 5:57:21 AM PDT by Argentine-Firecracker

ANXIOUS to create what they call "a global progressive front," Presidents Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela are sponsoring projects to underline "the ideological kinship of the left and revolutionary Islam."

The theme - hammered in by Ahmadinejad during his recent visit to Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia - inspired a four-day seminar organized by his supporters at Tehran University last week (partly financed by Chavez).

The hope was that the conference would produce a synthesis of Marxist and Khomeinist ideologies and highlight what the Iranian leader has labeled "the divine aspect of revolutionary war." But the event itself proved rather embarrassing.

The conference title was "Che Like Chamran," a play on words designed to emphasize "the common goals" of Marxism and Islamism. It honored Mostafa Chamran on the 26th anniversary of his death, which coincided with the 40th anniversary of the death of the Cuban-Argentine guerrilla icon Che Guevara.

Chamran was a Khomeinist militant of Iranian origin who became a U.S. citizen in the '60s before traveling to Lebanon, where he founded the Amal guerrilla group. He entered Iran in 1979 and helped the mullahs seize power. Appointed defense minister by Khomeini in '81, he died in a car crash a few months later.

The conference had three guests of honor: Mahdi Chamran, a brother of Mostafa and an Ahmadinejad associate, and Che's daughter Aleida and son Camilo.

Aleida, a pediatrician who lives in Havana, wore the mandatory Khomeinist hijab, while her brother had grown designer stubble to please the hosts. Also attending were an array of aging European and Latin American "Guevaristas" and Lebanese Hezbollah cadres.

Demanding the right to respond, Aleida Guevara told the conference that Qassemi's claim might be based on a bad translation: "My father never mentioned God," she said as the hall sighed in chagrined disbelief. "He never met God."

Hah!

Atheism and Islamofascism are incompatible. The issue is God. Islamofascists like Marxists - believe in absolute control over society. But they are the ones who are divinely appointed to rule and Marxists are useful idiots - a tool for them to get rid of the West's secular guardians who stand in the way of the ultimate triumph of Allah. Thus the Left is fooling themselves if they think Islamofascists want an alliance with them against liberal democracy and capitalism. The latter are happy to pursue those goals but the Marxists are not friends of Islam - but idolatrous fools destined to be vanquished.

Hmmm....seems like the Commies and the Islamofacists can't find common ground. Evil is about the only thing they can agree upon.

I wonder if this will cause a dilemma for the US Democrats as to which side to choose?

They’re just allies long enough to damage and get rid of the common enemy. Then they’ll turn on each other afterwards. They both know that, but they’re working together for now.

The thing is, that makes them no less dangerous enemies, together, just because they’ll try to finish off each other later on (and even if their basic idealogies are incompatible with each other’s). They’re still serious enemies right now, since they’re teaming up together.

Our society and way of life incite their common hatred. They both want to get rid of it but with one of them running it.

and the Prophet Mohammad requires that the marxist infidels be converted to Islam - even at the point of a sword - which they successfully accomplished with the Mediterranean Christians early on. This could prove to be very interesting!!

The atheist is far more deadly than the Jew because the most dangerous fool is the one who believes in nothing.

I’ll put my money on the mullah over the marxist. It may be evil versus evil, but the marxists have always been losers.

The Jew is deadly? Who knew! < /sarc >

Seriously, this statement will certainly be used as an example of FR's "anti-semitism" by some lefty loon. Source it to help prevent that (it must be a quote, right?).

Didn’t the Grand Mufti and Hitler run this same play in WWII?

Quote it all:

Things went pear-shape thanks to one keynote speakers, Hajj Saeed Qassemi, whose title is “coordinator of the Association of Volunteers for Suicide-Martyrdom.” Praising the late “Che” as “a true revolutionary who made the American Great Satan tremble,” he “revealed” that Guevara had been “a truly religious man who believed in God and hated communism and the Soviet Union.”

“Today, communism has been consigned to the garbage can of history as foreseen by Imam Khomeini,” Qassemi said. “Thus progressists everywhere must accept the leadership of our religious, pro-justice movement.”

Demanding the right to respond, Aleida Guevara told the conference that Qassemi’s claim might be based on a bad translation: “My father never mentioned God,” she said as the hall sighed in chagrined disbelief. “He never met God.”

The remarks caused a commotion amid which Aleida and her brother were whisked away, led into a car and driven to their hotel under escort.

Qassemi returned to the podium to unleash an unscripted attack on “godless communists.” He called on “the left in Latin America and elsewhere” to clarify its position. He claimed that Guevara and his “Supreme Guide Fidel Castro” had decided to hide their religious beliefs in order to secure Soviet support.”

“Both were men of God and never believed in socialism or communism,” he asserted. “The Soviet Union is gone,” he emphasized. “The leadership of the downtrodden has passed to our Islamic Republic. Those who wish to destroy America must understand the reality and not be clever with words.”

The religious incompatibility is the obvious one, but notice that socialism is not compatible with the Iranian regime either.

It is interesting to note that, at the time of the taking of the American Embassy in 1979, the uprising consisted of radical Muslim students and Communist students. They were planning, together, a demonstration in front of the Embassy. The Muslim students planned it so that THEY would be in the front of the group, and they all wore placards so that they could identify each other. When the surge toward the gate occurred, the Muslim students blocked any but their own from reaching the gate and going over it. They wanted to make sure that it was THEY, and not the Communists who were the ones who would take the hostages and 'claim' the Revolution. It was their intention all along to use the Communists for their own purposes, then dump them when they gained power.

They had been teaming up for a while but Russia's invasion of Afghanistan kind of messed things up a bit. Our left are a bunch of masochistic fools.

Take heed my brethren...we no longer have a two party system in America, we have the godless world communist machine and their operatives vs Freedom loving people the world over.

Don't the liberals call themselves 'progressives' too? Very telling...

We should start counting down to the arrival of the “human shields” to protect the baby milk factories of Iran.
