According to the Arab news service Al Arabiya there may be an explanation for the first of three mysterious blasts that have taken place in Iran over the past six weeks.  Someone was trying to execute a “hit” on Iranian Fearless Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Yesterday the country’s Tyrant-in-Chief  ordered the arrest of a number of senior members of the Revolutionary Guards he suspects of planning to assassinate him. Reportedly one of those arrested was Ali Khamenei’s own son, Mojtaba Khamenei (AKA Notsosupreme?). Mojtaba is an ardent supporter of Iranian President Ahmadinejad, and the Supreme Dad has not been too happy about what he believes is his son’s wayward support.

According to the source, “some of those” detained had invited Khamenei to come and visit the same weapons depot near Tehran where a large blast killed 17 people, among them the head of Iran’s ballistic-missiles program.

Khamenei was invited to visit on November 12, the same day as the blast, according to the Al Arabiya report.

This is the second time someone tried to “off” the Supreme Khamenei who despite his title was never a part of a female  singing group (although he is rather shapely for an aged despot . Thirty years ago he survived an assassination attempt which left his right arm paralyzed.

But that is only half the story reports investigative journalist Aaron Klein. The Jerusalem-based Klein’s sources in Saudi Arabia and Egypt say Khamenei thinks Ahmadinejad’s camp is behind the assassination plot. I guess that means Ahmadinejad is not going to give his boss a Christmas card.
