Crossfire War - MOHAMMAD KHATAMI WATCH - South Asia Theatre: Tehran - Riyadh - Beijing - Islamabad - Kabul - Dhaka - Kathmandu - Nay Pyi Taw/Delhi - Tokyo; Mohammad Khatami Former Iran President - Jihad Leader - Continues Campaign of Deception in India - 'India Today' - Iran TomorrowNight Watch: DELHI - The head of Iran's Association of Combatant Clerics, Mohammad Khatami, continued Tehran's campaign of deception by visiting Delhi to attend the conference given by the Institute of India. Khatami is the real leader of Iran's foreign policy. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, though he is President, is not a cleric. Clerics have been leading Iran's foreign policy since the Islamic revolution in Iran, 1979, led by the Ayatollah Khomeini. The Council of Guardians, the power behind Iran's government, has permitted a non-cleric to be head of state because they know that before Ahmadinejad's terms end in 2009 the Jihad would have run its course and it will be easier for Iran to make the transition from war to peace with a non-cleric as President.

In the meantime Mohammad Khatami is to continue to perform his role of deceiver, by posing as a moderate. To lead and present the deception the Council found someone photogenic and who smiles a lot. No one can out beam Khatami, except perhaps professional actors, he can turn it off and on like a light, but occasionally, if you watch him closely, flashes of his hatred of the West and India come through. Those are the two main targets of Iran's war effort, the West, Iran's main rival for economic prominence and India as Tehran's way of supporting Pakistan and the people of Kashmir in order to control India's economic future. The India of today under Iran's control tomorrow. The Council basically told Khatami, fool people for as long as you can, but when Iran's foreign policy becomes more obvious your real character will be revealed.
Tehran wants to see if they can repeat Persia's successful invasion of India in the early 18th century. What is now Pakistan was part of Persia then and it was during the invasion Tehran looted a lot of gems, which it added to its collection left over from the first Persian Empire. The collection is part of the Iranian State Treasury housed in the vault of Iran's Central Bank, whose website is linked to Crossfire War. You can view some of the collection by clicking the site's link. Of course, not the entire state treasury has been seen by outsiders, not even by the House of Boucheron, which helped Tehran arrange some of the collection for viewing. The gems are one of the sources of financing for Tehran's foreign policy.
Islamabad has never had this kind of financial support before so of course they are going to take advantage of it, but before the war against India becomes allout the deception campaign continues. Khatami beamed at Delhi when he attended India's Republic Day ceremonies in January 2005. He beamed at the UN when he attended the September 2000 opening in which he spoke and proclaimed 2001 as the year of the dialogue. It was after Iran's 2005 Presidential election that August; Khatami was appointed Head of the Association of Combatant Cleric, as announced on crossfirewar.com, Aug. 8, 2005.
On Nov. 15, that same year, crossfirewar.com reported his passing through Vienna as a continuation of his Dialogue between Civilizations tour. Khatami's theme was "Annihilation", supposedly of weapons of mass destruction, but if he had spoken more candidly he would have said instead annihilation of Vienna and the UN International Atomic Energy Agency based there investigating Iran's nuclear weapons program. Recently Khatami attended the world's leadership conference at Davos, Switzerland, still trying the give the world's decision makers the impression that the issue of Iran's weapons program could be solved peacefully and that relations with the Islamic world as a whole can always be one of mutual cooperation and benefit. Of course in the state of mind behind the beaming he wants to see Switzerland's economic decisions controlled by Iranian banks, Bank Melli for instance, they've had an office in Paris, Avenue Montaigne for nearly a century. One of their bank officers, Albert Hakim, testified 20 years ago in Washington during the Reagan Adminstration's Iran-Contra Scandal, instituting the selling of Washington's foreign policy to Tehran.
So now Khatami is continuing his deceptive presentation in the Jihad's other main target, India. Unfortunately a lot of India's leaderships seems to have fallen for him and don't realize the energy pipeline project from Iran to India, passing through Pakistan, is not really a pipeline of peace, as described last year by Iran Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, but a pipeline of deception. The reason, unfortunately, for Islamabad's eager and desperate acceptance of Tehran's massive military assistance is not only due to the depressed conditions in Jammu-Kashmir as a result of Delhi's oppressive control over the disputed province, but also to the serious military threat India is to Pakistan of which Delhi has always had the advantage.
The control is the direct result of Islamic fighters attacking Delhi's rule right after independence in 1947, when the Muslim majority province was still ruled by a Hindu Prince who called upon India for defence assistance from Islamic attacks when tribesman from Pakistan invaded Kashmir, on Oct. 22, 1947. They then advanced on the provincial capital Srinagar. The Maharaja, not only appealed to Delhi for help, but executed an instrument of accession to the Indian Union. Indian troops were then airlifted in support and the Islamic tribesman failed to take the city. This of course set the stage for future wars that are still very current.
The desperate conditions in the province are described in the attached editorial from the Kashmiri publication KashmirObserver.com Though Kashmir has often been described as a Paradise on Earth it is deficient in every basic food stable needed to sustain a population: milk, poultry, vegetables. The only economic services doing well are those that cater to the tourist industry and everyone realizes this could be the first front in World War III to see the use of nuclear weapons. The editorial ended with this sad couplet: If we persist with our negligence, a time will come when those bathing the dead shall have to bring in from Kabul and the white shrouds from Japan.

Crossfirewar.com has often stated warlords from Afghanistan could join the next war and that the only government among all the Allied capitals which might be willing to send troops into northeast India to help Delhi against China is Tokyo. White shrouds are a sign of mourning in India, worn by women after a major tragedy.
