Iranian scientist's widow says husband worked for "annihilation of Israel"

From Jeffrey Goldberg, news that the widow of a recently slain Iranian nuclear scientist has admitted that the goal of her husband's work was "the annihilation of Israel". I don't relay this news because it comes as a surprise, but as a convenient way to counter anyone foolish enough to argue that this is not Iran's objective.

From Iran's Fars News Agency:
"Mostafa's ultimate goal was the annihilation of Israel," Fatemeh Bolouri Kashani told FNA on Tuesday. Bolouri Kashani also underlined that her spouse loved any resistance figure in his life who was willing to fight the Zionist regime and supported the rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation. Iran's 32-year-old Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast, a chemistry professor and a deputy director of commerce at Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was assassinated during the morning rush-hour in the capital early January.

Code Pink's Medea Benjamin appears on Iranian TV to criticize AIPAC

Press TV, the Iranian regime's main English language propaganda outlet, has aired an interview with Medea Benjamin of Code Pink. The Press TV website containing the interview describes Benjamin as a "human rights advocate". Iran has by far the greatest number of executions per capita, state-sanctioned rape and torture, and many thousands of political prisoners. They apparently love a friendly "human rights advocate" like Medea Benjamin who is willing to overlook those facts when they appear on Iranian TV to condemn Jews for having too much influence in the U.S.
