Iran and Saudi Arabia's Frankenstien

In an attempt to demonize the west, the Islamic governments of Saudi Arabia and Iran have teamed up to portray the west as a Frankenstien.

First the Saudi Government Daily Accuses U.S. Army of Harvesting Organs of Iraqis.

In the Saudi government daily Al-Watan, a n article from Brussels written by Fakhriya Ahmad charges that, based on alleged secret European military reports, the U.S. military in Iraq is harvesting and selling human organs. The following day, the story was also published in the Iranian daily Jomhouri-ye Islami, [1] as well as the Syrian daily Teshreen. [2] The following are excerpts from the article: [3]

"Secret European military intelligence reports indicate the transformation of the American humanitarian mission in Iraq into a profitable trade in the American markets through the practice of American physicians extracting human organs from the dead and wounded, before they are put to death, for sale to medical centers in America. A secret team of American physicians follow the troops during their attacks on Iraqi armed men to ensure quick [medical] operations for extracting some organs and transferring them to private operations rooms before they are transferred to America for sale.

I guess the "dead" terrorists shot dead again by a US forces and caught on tape by NBC didn't have blue eyes or otherwise fit the bill.

Seems the Iranians decided to go a step further and make a movie about it.

Iran's Sahar 1 TV station is currently airing a weekly series titled "For You, Palestine," or "Zahra's Blue Eyes." The series premiered on December 13, and is set in Israel and the West Bank. It broadcasts every Monday, and was filmed in Persian but subsequently dubbed into Arabic.

The story follows an Israeli candidate for Prime Minister, Yitzhak Cohen, who is also the military commander of the West Bank. The opening sequence of the show contains graphic scenes of surgery, and images of a Palestinian girl in a hospital whose eyes have been removed, with bandages covering the sockets.

In Episode 1, Yitzhak Cohen lectures at a medical conference on the advances being made by Israeli medicine regarding organ transplants. Later in the episode, Israelis disguised as UN workers visit a Palestinian school, ostensibly to examine the children's eyes for diseases, but in reality to select which children's eyes to steal to be used for transplants.

In Episode 2, the audience learns that the Israeli president is being kept alive by organs stolen from Palestinian children, and an Israeli military commander is seen kidnapping UN employees and Palestinians.

Now, add this to the mix and you begin to see what the Iranians are up to.

Iran has arrested more than 10 people since March for spying on its atomic projects, the intelligence minister has said.

Ali Yunesi claimed the spies had been working for America and Israel and said three of them were working within the state nuclear programme.

All of which leads to this:

The official said: "This is a way for the regime to bolster support at home. The last time they uncovered a 'great spy ring' was when they were under great pressure. This is always a good way for them to justify their policies at home."

Demonize them and then "catch" them spying on you to prove it.

With the growing call for Kofi Annan to go, they even managed to portray the west attacking the UN.

Nice, huh?
