Iraq allegedly has agreed to allow 50,000 Iranian Basij militia troops into the country to help suppress riots against the government and seize Arab and other foreign embassies, including that of the United States. The two leaders allegedly agreed to allow the Basij forces to attack and occupy the foreign embassies considered hostile to Iran in Baghdad, and to detain their staffs.

Arutz Sheva or Channel 7 is a major Israel’s “right-wing” media network. Like Fox or something.

The real source is “the Voice of Iraq website” and “Nashwan News”.

I have no idea how credible they are.

Its own reporting is very reliable, but this report is reprinted and cited as from other sources, not Arutz.

Well, it was called this way at the time. Arutz Sheva is more conservative for sure, but it is a foreign media outlet so you have to adjust standards:)

OPINION:

Anything is possible of course, but it reads like pure Iranian propaganda that is put out by the Iran’s cyber army.

It’s something Baghdad Bob would give high marks to.

50,000 is a popular number. I guess that’s the standard number for today’s (and previous years) Basij army.

Video Description - SNIPPET - quote:

Addressing a massive parade by 50,000 members of Iran’s Basij forces, the commander stressed on Friday that the country would respond to any threat with full force.

He added that if the US and Israel really want to Iran, they should be prepared to pay the price.

SNIPPET - quote: “From Mehr News Agency

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari on Tuesday emphasized that the enemies will never dare to invade Iran because of Basij forces.

“Even if the enemies surrounded the country, they would not dare to even utter a threat against Iran,” he told 50,000 Basij forces at a gathering in Khorasan Razavi Province.”

Bush was backing the Saudi initiative, but the Saudis are very unpopular in Iraq. obama came in and did a 180 and backs Iran to the hilt.
IF there is an attack on the American Embassy in Iraq, it will be because obama allowed it...just as he allowed the attacks on the Cairo Embassy and Benghazi...and just as he TRIED to incite in Pakistan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basij

Estimates of the number of Basij vary, with its leadership giving higher figures than outside commentators. According to RFERL,

According to a former commander of the Basij, Brigadier General Mohammad Hejazi, the strength of the force in 2004 was 10.3 million. By 2007, its strength stood at 12.6 million. The current commander of the Basij, Hasan Taeb, told the semi-official Fars news agency on November 25 that the force now numbers 13.6 million, which is about 20 percent of the total population of Iran. Of this number, about 5 million are women and 4.7 million are schoolchildren. ... In fact the Basij may be able to mobilize no more than 1.5 million men and women of military age.
An earlier study in 2005 by a Washington think-tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, put “the number of full-time, uniformed, and active members at 90,000, with another 300,000 reservists and some 1 million that could be mobilized when necessary
***************************************************

With even the lesser of these numbers, being able to mobilize 50,000 is a fingersnap away.
So do not take this as a joke. The internal intel agencies of the US are taking this report seriously.

http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2011/05/14/149101.html

The Basij forces, dependent on the Revolutionary Guards, are estimated to have several million members, although the number of its active members is unknown.

Western experts believe nearly 100,000 of Basij forces, in cooperation with Revolutionary Guards, are trained to intervene in anti-regime riots.
************************************************

It was the basij that put down the Green Revolution and they imported foreigners who wouldn’t feel ‘sympathy’ or empathy for the students during the uprising.
Millions stand ready to be called into active service.

Thanks Bobalu. Similar to yesterday's:
Iraq allegedly has agreed to allow 50,000 Iranian Basij militia troops into the country to help suppress riots against the government and seize Arab and other foreign embassies, including that of the United States. The two leaders allegedly agreed to allow the Basij forces to attack and occupy the foreign embassies considered hostile to Iran in Baghdad, and to detain their staffs.
If Iran decided to send 50K troops into Iraq, the regime there would not be able to stop it, even if it were to want to.
