Iran and Syria signed a defense agreement on Friday, according to an Iranian Press TV report.

The document, signed by Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi and his Syrian counterpart Ali Mohammad Habib Mahmoud, aimed to face "common enemies and challenges," the report said.

Vahidi praised Syria's great potential in the defense and military fields and said that "it is natural for a country like Syria - which has an inhumane and menacing predator like Israel in its neighborhood - to be always prepared [against possible foreign aggression]."

His visit to Syria comes a week after Saeed Jalili, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, also visited Damascus.


Clinton Slams Iran as Major Exporter of Terror

Hillary Clinton has named Iran as "the major supporter, promoter and exporter of terrorism in the world today" and that Iran ’s Revolutionary Guard "is increasing its control over the country because of the elections which were a stark example of the abuse of human rights in action." Iran keeps insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. However, it has refused to compromise with the U.N.’s atomic energy agency by sending most of its low-enriched uranium out of the country for reprocessing. Why? If Iran does this it will not have enough material in the country to make a nuclear weapon.

With signs of growing international support for pressure on Iran, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lashed out at Tehran and the Revolutionary Guard military corps Friday, calling the country "the major supporter, promoter and exporter of terrorism in the world today."

Clinton, responding to a question from a Latin American audience at the State Department about growing Iranian influence in Latin America, said Iran's Revolutionary Guard "is increasing its control over the country because of the elections which were a stark example of the abuse of human rights in action."

The Revolutionary Guard, she said, "is deeply involved in the economy as well as the security issues of Iran. And I think if people want to flirt with Iran, they should take a look at what the consequences might well be for them, and we hope that they will think twice, and we are going to support them if they do."


Radical Movement's Leader Forecasts America's Demise

Washington, D.C.

As the spotlight moves away from the Fort Hood massacre, one of America's most openly radical Islamist organizations has taken to the murderer's defense. As-Sabiqun, a Washington D.C.-based organization with branches in four other major American cities, released a flyer labeling shooter Nidal Malik Hasan as "victimized" and the "target of psychological warfare." The handout also defended convicted terrorists and suspects.

As-Sabiqun has repeatedly predicted the demise of the United States and dreams of "the Islamic State of North America no later than 2050." It has openly declared support for terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hizbullah, and even claimed it funded anti-American militants. With concerns growing over radical Islamist propaganda in the United States, As-Sabiqun is one of the leading organizations building a bridge between international Islamism and its developing American counterpart.

A Taliban fighter killed this spring by NATO troops in southern Afghanistan was found to have a tattoo from the Aston Villa Football Club, indicating he may have grown up in Britain's West Midlands. It was the latest evidence that British Muslims of South Asian origin have joined the fight in Afghanistan.

For some time, Royal Air Force spy planes have picked up radio communication between Taliban fighters who speak with thick accents from Manchester, Birmingham, West Bromwich and Bradford, all cities with large populations of British Muslims of South Asian origin.

"But it was a shock to hear that the guys we were fighting against supported the same football clubs as us, and maybe even grew up on the same streets as us," the Telegraph newspaper quoted an unnamed British military official as saying.
