Terrorist: 35 Jews volunteered for suicide attacks
An Iranian terror leader who said on Sunday that he planned to send suicide bombers to Israel via Britain claims 35 Jews also volunteered for attack
Thirty five Jews volunteered to carry out suicide attacks against Israel in the service of an Islamic terrorist organization, claimed the head of an Iranian terrorist organization, "The Committee for the Commemoration of the Martyrs of the Global Islamic Campaign."

 

Members of the organization said that they planned to send the terrorists to Israel via Britain.

 

The Mahar news agency reported that the terror chief, Faruz Rajai-Far, told a Teheran conference that the organization's website registered 55,000 volunteers from all over the world to carry out suicide bombings. The volunteers, he claimed, included 35 Jews who don't live in Iran, as well as a number of Christians and other citizens. At the same time, the organization's website has been taken down, and cannot be viewed.

 

'New unit of bombers'

 

The conference heard about the establishment of a new unit of suicide bombers named after "the martyr Nader Mahdui," who committed suicide on a U.S. navy ship in the Persian Gulf. Reports on fundraising to support Palestinians were also heard.

 

An Iranian news website said during the weekend that the organization began enlisting new members in the Bushar region in Iran, where Iranians are building a nuclear core with the aid of Russian experts. The aim of the recruitment drive was, according to Rajai-Far, to set up a brigade of suicide bombers who will be named "the Brigade of Suicide Bombers Brigade for the Defense of the Atomic Core of Bushar."

 

The organization, set up two years ago, has 52,000 members – three percent of whom are women. The members undergo military training, urban warfare training, and the use of weapons. In recent days hundreds of volunteers signed forms to join the organization.

 

They were asked if they would prefer to carry out attacks against "the occupiers of Jerusalem, (Israel) the dissident author Salman Rushdie, or against occupiers of Muslim countries (the U.S. and Britain).

 

The organization claims it works independently, but it in fact receives support from the Iranian regime. Searches for new recruits are carried out mainly in Britain, due to the belief that it is relatively easy to enter Israel with a British passport.
