Iran accuses West of using lizards for nuclear spying

Adviser to Khamenei says aid collectors for Palestinians sought to deploy reptiles whose skin 'attracted atomic waves'

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The former chief-of-staff of Iran’s armed forces said Tuesday that Western spies had used lizards to “attract atomic waves” and spy on his country’s nuclear program.

It was the latest in a long line of incidents of Western countries, including Israel, being accused of deploying secret agents from the animal kingdom.

Hassan Firuzabadi, senior military adviser to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was responding to questions from local media on the recent arrest of environmentalists.

He said he did not know the details of the cases, but that the West had often used tourists, scientists and environmentalists to spy on Iran.

“Several years ago, some individuals came to Iran to collect aid for Palestine… We were suspicious of the route they chose,” he told the reformist ILNA news agency.

“In their possessions were a variety of reptile desert species like lizards, chameleons… We found out that their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities,” he said.

Firuzabadi said Western spy agencies had “failed every time.”

His comments came after news that a leading Iranian-Canadian environmentalist, Kavous Seyed Emami, had committed suicide in prison after he was arrested along with other members of his wildlife NGO last month.

Several spying allegations involving various creatures have been leveled against Israel over the past years.

In January 2016, Lebanese residents captured a griffon vulture wearing an Israeli tracking device, but released it upon realizing that the transmitter strapped to the bird was intended for scientific research rather than espionage.

Several months earlier, Hamas claimed to have caught a dolphin wearing Israeli spying equipment.

Twice in recent years, Turkish media has highlighted allegations that birds tagged with Israeli university tracking devices were on espionage missions.

In 2012, an eagle with an Israeli tag in Sudan was captured and alleged to be as a Mossad spy.

Two years earlier, an Egyptian official said Israel-controlled sharks may have been involved in a number of attacks on tourists in the Red Sea.

Squee!

Why am I up? I don’t want to be here.

The pattern for the backpack arrived already, but with the way things are, I won’t even be able to look for fabric until I get to Hurricane.

In about 30 minutes, I’ll head for WinCo and get the few things on my list, and put some gas in the truck. Eddie is coming over this morning, and I would like to take a nap before he gets here.

My days are really messed up, now, and I’m pretty sure its because of the move and the fact that I can’t get away from the boxes and storage tubs. I’m starting to get cabin fever but the cabin is hidden by the things I’m packing and stacking.

Good morning. I slept until my alarm went off today.

What’s wrong? The different colored eyes?

I don’t think it’s fair for cats to be bred deliberately without fur.

I read that as I was headed out the door, so I had no reading glasses on. What I read was: "I slept until my brain went off today." :o])

Boom!

Sally was working on researching DP’s Cherokee ancestry last night. In the next couple of dates, I’ll send you some names, so you can see if they can get a documented tribal membership either in NC or in Oklahoma.

A financial aid counselor at CP told her it would be worth the effort!

Yes, the odd-colors in the eyes are different, but the wrong thing is, Covenantor, that there is no forked tongue slithering out!

I checked on those cats at one time, but they are so high maintenance I don’t think I could have one, even though there is no dander. Their skin is waxy-feeling which acts as in insulator of sorts. If I had one, I’d have to put little coats on it all the time. They need to be bathed about once a week to keep their skin healthy.

The more I shop at WinCo the better I like it, even if it is farther away. The yogurt is 2¢ to 50¢ cheaper and the rice pudding is 53¢ cheaper.

I had a map, but I still missed the crackers, so my chicken salad will have to be used on smaller crackers. I was looking for the water crackers. The place is HUGH! I definitely got my exercise in this morning!

I’d be most happy to do that!

I’ll have to call Jerry today and find out what the labor cost is for the brake pads. They need to be replaced asap. I’m glad the pavement wasn’t wet this morning, or I might have been in trouble.

Just let me know! I’m about to take PatJamesVlad over to another boy’s house to finish his Eagle Scout project. Then I’ll kill time with Frank and Kathleen ... maybe we’ll go to Publix!

Oh, THAT sperm on Obama’s head.

That’s subtle. I think it is supposed to look like a vein with some blockage seconds before a stroke. Or, the artist could have snuck in a sperm, suggesting it had escaped from the D@#%k head it’s swimming on.

That 'artist', Kehinde Wiley, is another black homosexual racist pervert like so many of Obama's other associates.

He is also well known for sneaking thinly disguised little spermatozoa into his portraits.

So there is no doubt Obama knew what to expect when he chose Wiley to do his official portrait.

Here are a couple of other examples:

Several images in those backgrounds look like captive heads screaming for freedom.

I think I would be embarrassed to have that painting hanging anywhere but a bathroom.

I’ll do that, thanks!

I’m going to take a few minutes and stretch out my legs. My left hip seems to be nagging at me lately. :o[

Since I’ll be moving “soon” I don’t want to see the doctor here. I’ll just do what I need to do when I get resettled. I’m thinking I need to order some Ojibwa tea.

"I’m thinking I need to order some Ojibwa tea."

And your tribal heritage documentation.

Speaking of heads screaming for freedom...

Obama's artist also likes to paint portraits of surly black women holding the decapitated heads of white women.

He is sick beyond description.
