Disappointment in Iran
The supreme spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Haminay caused deep disappointment in Iran when he published a fatwa forbidding volunteer suicide bombers to travel to Israel and explode in this country. 70,000 volunteers are on the waiting list to enjoy a last trip to Israel. The Ayatollah promised to find ways to help the Hamas in Gaza. The volunteers had sent an open letter to President Ahmedenijad asking for permits to leave the Iran. I remember the Israeli press mentioning that Iranian infiltrators had been demanding political refugee status.
