Desperately Seeking Trouble

With all the problems they have (e.g., sanctions, internal unrest, besieged Syrian ally Bashar Assad, etc.) leave it to those "rational actors," the Iranians, to desperately seek Trouble, which would serve as a distraction for their simmering population...

Nothing fits that bill better than a confrontation with Israel, at least as far as the Arab/Muslim world is concerned. Hence Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi's tour of Lebanon’s border with Israel, on Thursday.

Provocative? You betcha. Expected? You betcha. Is the Obama administration watching? Probably not, as they’re too busy marking the one-year anniversary of the killing of one Islamic murderer, to notice the ominous activities of a bunch of live Islamic murderers (i.e., Iran and Hezbollah).

Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi toured Lebanon's border with Israel Thursday while visiting the Hezbollah stronghold, Ynet reported.

At an official ceremony both Hezbollah and Iranian flags were flown, and Rahimi emphasized the need to oppose "the Zionist regime."

The vice president reiterated the Islamic Republic's support for Hezbollah and met with its leader, Hasan Nasrallah.

The story cited Iranian reports as saying that Rahimi observed "occupied Palestine" from across the border.

Rahimi also met with Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati, saying he had high hopes for future Iranian Lebanese relations.
