Cartoons and Tehran and Us

By on 2.6.06 | 1:15PM

Report tonght from Druze leader Walid Jumblatt at Beirut that the cartoon rioting in Beirut that burned the Danish embassy and attacked a Marionite church and Lebanese Christians was led by Syrian agents.

This is a five week old story. Why now?

Study the correspondence between the cartoon riots in Europe and now the Ummah and the IAEA spanking of Tehran for its flagagrant nuclear weapons fuel cycle at the weekend.

Easy assumption at this point is that Iran has tasked its best slave state Syria to escalate attacks in Beirut while scaring the Scandinavians out of Damascus and Amman.

Iran is most confident; the IRGC laughs at Western appeasement; the Iranan agents in place in Western governments are busy and cash rich.

Watching for Washington and London and Paris and Berlin to retreat and appease.

The cartoon that makes sense is ancient Pogo wit: "The enemy is us."

Put the cartoons on the WSJ front page. Ask the question of the American public: Does this make sense? Burning for this? Now, ask yourself, who benefits from the riots?

The answer is Iran, Iran, Iran.
