Although this is from April 2012, I thought it interesting...why would Iran's intellectual class be curious about this movement, other than by the useful idiot standard? Or by academy-oriented anti-semitism? Is Iranian money going to OWS?

Does anyone have any doubt that Iran's radical had anything to do with what happened in Egypt and Libya last week and in the middle east ?

And now this ?

( American Professors Gather in Tehran for Occupy Wall Street Conference ) ..... seems to be a pattern here, doesn't it ?

Now we have a direct link to the terrorist who attacked the US Embassies in Egpyt and Libya ( via Iran's radicals ) to Occupy Wall Street Radicals....

Least we forget ?

Wasn't it Obama's buddies who instigated the GAZA FREEDOM MOVEMENT that attacked Israeli ships ?
You know, Obama's buddies like ? Bill Ayers ? Dorn ? George Sorros ?

Code Pink, a group which includes at least one campaign finance bundler for Obama, was involved in the blockade running stunt.

Gorgeous Goerge Galloway, a UK leftist related to yassir Arafat was involved in an effort to bust the blockade on land.

And yes, there was Obama’s friend and coworker Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

new world order/commies/statist intelligentsia is the real HQ. they’re “partnering” with muzzie leadership, uniting against their common enemy... the one true God, America, apple pie, etc.

The new world order’s vision of turning the world into north korea is their goal.

In WWI and WWII, Germany used muslims to create battles that would sap the resources of the Allies.

Same play book here today.

Of course, the muzzies think they are going to turn the world into Sudan; they have the same plan for commies as everyone else: convert, submit, or die.

Exciting...

The Turkish group involved in the blockade running is IHH. Plug in IHH as a keyword, it should be target-rich.

Another keyword is "unionofgood" which IIRC correctly, is linked to Qaradawi, who is another liberal fav.

Of course you did. Professors have a budget for this sort of thing.

Do we have to let them back in? Let them claim refugee status in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

They act silly over here so people will disregard what they do overseas; over there they aren’t just clowning around, they are as one terrorist referred to in another case of being abetted, the terrorists’ own “secret doves.”

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/iran-s-supreme-leader-praises-us-occupy-movement

“the “supreme leader” of Iran – praised America’s “Occupy Wall Street” movement on Thursday, calling it a reflection of people around the world who are “losing their patience” with the dominance of the United States and Israel in the international community”

*************************

There are five levels of readiness that have to be prepared for the coming, he said: “Individual readiness, the readiness for creating the environment, systematic readiness, the readiness in the region and the international readiness. This means Occupy Wall Street must take place, the Americans must lose hope with the Democratic Party and others, and lose faith in the U.N., while at the same time the unraveling in the Middle East, which was not ripe before, must have taken place before the coming.”

This is the first time a high-ranking Iranian official has stated on the record that the Quds Forces are not only involved in the region, but also internationally for a final confrontation with the West

Libyan Rebel Commander: I Was on the Mavi Marmara

Has the Drudge Report ever had this on their links ?

Well, well, well, another link connected to what is happening.

Title of the article from the National Review :

( Libyan Rebel Commander: I Was on the Mavi Marmara ) .....

He admitted that he was on the Mavi Marmara in the attempt to break the Israeli navel blockade in May 2010 with the FREE GAZA MOVEMENT.

Wonder if any of these Libyan rebels who were on the Mavi Marmara, and who helped in the over trow of Gaddafi's regime were also part of the attacks on the US Embassy in Libya ?
And now ? the ring leaders of the Occupy Wall Street protesters are meeting with Iranian leaders in Iran ?

Just connecting the dots folks, something smells fishy all right.

It would be nice if there were some way they could stay over there permanently.

It would be “unfortunate” if these profs happened to be in the way of an Israeli air strike.

Re the Gaza Flotilla and related groups such as the International Solidarity Movement. Go to www.keywiki.org and search for “International Solidarity Movement”. You’ll learn more in 15 minutes than you’ve seen in all the mainstream newspapers over the past 2 years. Guaranteed.
