Axis: Bold as Hate

The AP has an excellent report on the Hezbollah/Hamas/Fatah Axis of Evil at work in Gaza and on the West Bank: “Hezbollah sponsors anti-Israel attacks.” Surprisingly little attention has been paid to the intersection of this particular axis in Tehran or to its radiation to the current crisis in Iraq. The folks at MEMRI have compiled an outstanding special report on the subject: “Iran’s role in the recent uprising in Iraq.” Bringing MEMRI’s April 9 report up to date is today’s New York Post story: “Iran, Hezbollah aid crazed cleric.”
In the category of “pictures worth a thousand words” is the photo above from the Yahoo News slideshow that accompanies the AP story linked above. The Reuters caption for the photo reads: “Masked Palestinian gunmen from the Fatah (news – web sites) movement carry a large poster of slain Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Saddam Hussein (news – web sites) and Yasser Arafat (news – web sites) during a demonstration against the U.S.-led military campaign in Iraq (news – web sites), at Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza Strip (news – web sites) April 11,2004.
