Update at 9:23 a.m. ET. Reports of a blast near Khomeini's shrine:

Reuters writes that "a bomb exploded in Tehran on Saturday, killing one person and wounding two, Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported. It said the blast occurred near the shrine of Iran's revolutionary founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini."

NPR News has not independently confirmed the report.

Tear down that tomb!

Destroying this eye-sore will be the revenge for Khomeini tearing down the mausoleum of Reza Shah Pahlavi 30 years ago.

Many reports from Twitter are claiming this is a false report spread by state run TV.

That looks a lot like what you see at a trade show in any hotel conference center. You know, all those booths they set up.

Our position is to accelerate the development of nuclear weapons by Ahmadinejad so that the Jews in Israel can be exterminated.

Haven't you studied Obama? Haven't you read his books? Don't you know the positions of the men closest to him throughout his public career?

How can you question his position? "White folks' greed runs a world in need". The day he heard that was the day (according to him) that he decided to become a politician. This may remind you of another politician's story , one with similar gifts.

The reason for evil in the world is white folks' greed. This is so bad that young Barry Soetero, the day he heard those words, decided on the path that would lead to the White House.

And, since those words were spoken by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, you should go to the source to learn who are the greediest of all the white folks. The question answers itself.

It's really very simple. Our policy is "Non-whites awaken! Jews beware!"

He was smarter. Probably had Ashkenazim somewhere back in the family tree.

Iran TV had a camera crew there before the blast.

Not a booth. Looks like the buffet table where the monster shrimp were displayed (back in the great days of hitech when
money was no object)...

From the pic, the tiers look like stands for the Winners Circle at the Eukanuba Dog Show. LOL!
