Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei offered his first public statement today on the week-long protest sparked by the fraudulent electoral victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He blamed "media belonging to Zionists, evil media" for fueling divisions in Iran. Meanwhile, Andrew Sullivan -- who writes today of "the Khamenei-Neocon agreement" -- yesterday asserted that the Washington Post was publishing "op-eds peddling dishonest partial numbers to buttress Ahmadinejad, because that's what the neocons wanted." And just in case you think Sullivan might not necessarily be using the term neocon as a substitute for Zionist, he helpfully clears up any confusion by referring to the paper's op-ed page as "hackneyed AIPAC boilerplate." So while Sullivan and Khamenei may disagree over what end the Jews seek through their nefarious control of the media, they both understand what the real threat is.
