By The Friends He Keeps

Hat Tip Gardjola: Attending the unveiling of Venezuelan hero Simon Bolivar's statue in Tehran were Hugo Chavez and the then mayor of Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Photo of statue here.

Is further comment needed, or is the photo worth more than a wordy description?

While you are thinking about that, you may be interested in happenings of today from my favorite writer at an international news agency based in Washington, DC., Lone Ranger, in his What's the Religion of Peace Up To Today? From Afghanistan to QUETTA. This one particularly caught my eye:

SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq, May 1, 2006 (AFP) - Iranian forces shelled Kurdish rebel positions in Iraq for the second day on Monday, forcing dozens of Kurdish families to flee, a rebel leader said.

Read the others, here. Lone Ranger says, "In fact, a lot of Muslim violence is so commonplace that it's rarely reported anymore."

Molten Eagle's open question (since February 17, 2006) to the spokeperson for CAIR, Ibrahim Hooper, is:

Who is the leading Islamic Cleric in the United States and what is his position on violence and rioting? I still have not learned answers to those basic questions. I believe any other American religion would have made this clear by now. Ibrahim Hooper, of course, is no cleric and therefore speaks only for the financiers of the CAIR lobby.

Does anyone know the leading Islamic Cleric and what he has told his followers (besides the FBI, that is)?
