TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad survived an attack with a homemade explosive device on his motorcade during a visit to the western city of Hamadan on Wednesday, a source in his office said.
The source said Ahmadinejad’s convoy was targeted as he was traveling from Hamadan’s airport to give a speech in a local sports arena and the president was unhurt but others had been injured in the blast…
Al Arabiya television said an attacker had thrown a bomb at Ahmadinejad’s convoy before being detained.
Does Mahmoud have any theories about who’s trying to kill him? Of course he does!
During a speech to a conference of expatriate Iranians in Tehran on Monday, Ahmadinejad said he believed he was the target of an assassination plot by Israel. “The stupid Zionists have hired mercenaries to assassinate me,” he said.
Something tells me that if Israel was trying to assassinate you, ‘Moudy, ol’ buddy ol’ pal, you wouldn’t be around to whine about it. But everything else is their fault, right? Why not this too?
