On Saturday, a website associated with the Iranian Republican Guard announced that it is calling on the public to sign up for Martyrdom operations against the United States. This my friends is the type of Operations that Joe Biden was talking about when he said that there was going to be a test of Barack Obama should he win the presidency tomorrow. Biden also said that when Obama reacted to this crises we would all be scratching our heads thinking “what the hell is he doing?” Folks Read this Report Below and decide who DO YOU THINK WOULD BEST HANDLE an AMERICA UNDER ATTACK BY HOMICIDE BOMBERS?

MEMRI-Iranian Group Recruits Iranian Volunteers for Anti-U.S. Martyrdom [Suicide] Operations to be Carried Out by Hizbullah

On November 1, 2008, the Iranian website Tabnak, which is identified with Expediency Council Secretary and former IRGC commander Mohsen Rezai, reported that flyers have recently been circulated in Iran calling on the public, especially young people, to sign up for martyrdom operations to be carried out by the Lebanese Hizbullah. The flyer promises registrants that they will become “fighters in the worldwide front against the Global Arrogance [i.e. the U.S.].”
Following is a translation of the Tabnak report: [1]

“In the recent days and months, forms have been distributed in Tehran and in several of [Iran’s] large provinces, titled “[Registration for] Membership in the Lebanese Hizbullah” and “Registration for Martyrdom Operations.” [These documents] call on the public, and especially on young people, to join the ‘world-wide front against the Global Arrogance [i.e. the U.S.]’ by filling out the form and providing an address and [phone] number where they can be reached.
“The Hizbullah registration form bears a Tehran address, which has not yet been verified, but the martyrdom operations form bears the name of an organization [that is known to be] active in this sphere, as well as a phone number for further enquiries.
“It should be mentioned that this group – some of whose previous activities and [projects] were not without merit – has in the past recruited martyrdom squads [for operations in] Palestine, which generated a wave of [anti-Iranian] propaganda worldwide and branded Iran a terrorist [state]. [The same group] also produced a recent documentary on [the assassination of former Egyptian president] Anwar Sadat which aroused considerable protest in Egypt and prompted the creation of an anti-Islamic and anti-Iran film that insults the great leader of the [Islamic] Revolution [Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini].
“The provision of specific personal information to unauthorized movements and persons by members of Iranian society can give rise to innumerable dangers and problems.”
“It should be mentioned that an Iranian movement called the World Islamic Organization Headquarters for Remembering the Shahids has carried out several recruitment campaigns for volunteers for martyrdom operations in Iraq and Israel, [2] and has produced a film titled Assassination of a Pharaoh, on the assassination of Sadat.
