      Khamenei Decrees: Israel is Kafer-e-Harbi; Iranian Martyrdom Seekers Await
      Khameini's Orders; Iranian Student Organizations Threaten to Take Over

      Khamenei: Jihad Against Israel


      Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has issued a decree to act against
      Israel, which he calls "an infidel that should be warred against"
      (Kafer-e-Harbi ) because of the "slaughter of the Palestinian Muslims" and
      the "plunder of Islamic lands". He stated: "All Palestinian fighters and all
      believers in the Islamic world must help the defenseless [Palestinian]
      women, children, and people in Gaza. Anyone who dies in this legitimate and
      sacred defense is a shahid [martyr]." [1]

      The Iranian Martyrdom-Seekers Movement


      On December 30, 2008, a senior Student Basij movement official, Mohammad
      Hassan Alaghemand, announced the establishment in Iran of an organization of
      martyrdom-seekers, called the "Brigades of the Forces of God's Prophet
      Muhammad - The Quds Esteshhad Units," sponsored by all the prominent student
      organizations in the country. Alaghemand invited students wishing to join to
      register at Student Basij offices across the country, or online at
      www.esteshhadi.com <http://www.esteshhadi.com/> . [2]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn2>


      At www.esteshhadi.com/register, a website launched for registering these
      martyrdom-seekers, applicants can fill out a registration form, with first
      name, last name, mailing address, state ID number, gender, age (must be over
      18), email address, education, area of study, university attended, and
      student number. Below the form appears Khamenei's decree regarding the need
      to help the Palestinians.


      The Iranian news agency Fars reported, on December 29, 2008 "Only one day
      after the" Esteshhad Brigades of the Forces of God's Prophet Muhammad "was
      established, over 20,000 Iranian students had signed up... to be sent to
      Gaza if necessary, and to defend the oppressed Palestinian people, according
      to Khamenei's decree." [3]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn3> Thus, for
      example, at a December 29 student demonstration at Amir Kabir University in
      Tehran protesting against the Israeli attack on Hamas - 271 students
      declared their willingness to participate in martyrdom operations. The same
      day, another senior Student Basij official, Ali Reza Zahedi, declared that
      "obeying [Khamenei's] jihad decree, members of the Student Basij have
      launched a [volunteer] sign-up [campaign] at all universities for the
      "Brigades of the Forces of God's Prophet Muhammad - The Quds Esteshhad
      Units." [4] <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn4>


      Senior Iranian regime officials, such as Expediency Council secretary Mohsin
      Rezai and Majlis member Ahmad Tavakkoli, also announced their willingness to
      join the Iranian fighters' movement. [5]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn5>


      In letters to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, posted December 30 on
      www.esteshhadi.com <http://www.esteshhadi.com/> , the student organizations
      stated, "The students' movement is anticipating a revolutionary move in
      order to fulfill our requests regarding the people in Gaza." [6]

      Student Organizations Issue Ultimatum to Egyptian, Jordanian Diplomatic
      Representations: Get Out By Noon Tomorrow


      On the same website, the Iranian student organizations issued a 48-hour
      ultimatum to the director of the Egyptian interest office in Tehran, Amro
      Al-Zayyat, demanding that Egypt either condemn the Israeli offensive and
      open its borders to let supplies enter Gaza, or remove its representatives
      from Iranian soil by noon on January 1, 2009. The organizations said that
      they intended to take over the Egyptian representation, and threatened that
      the fate of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would be the same as that of
      the late Iraqi president Saddam Hussein. [7]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn7>


      An identical ultimatum was issued to Jordan's representatives in Iran. In
      addition, the secretary-general of the Association of Independent Islamic
      Students Organizations, Mehdi Tousi, said that the Iranian student
      organizations intended to demonstrate on January 1, in front of the
      Jordanian representation in Tehran, and reported that "many students from
      across the country are now en route to Tehran." [8]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn8> It was also
      reported that on December 31, firebombs were thrown at the Jordanian
      representation. [9]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn9>


      Senior Student Basij official Mohammad Hassan Alaghemand announced that
      students had entrenched themselves in front of the Egyptian interest office
      with the aim of causing a shutdown of the office and the removal of its
      representatives from Iran. He also called on the Iranian Foreign Ministry to
      implement Khamenei's decree and to shut down the office. [10]
      <http://www.memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD216908#_edn10>


      It was further reported that on the night of December 30, hundreds of
      Iranian students participated in a demonstration in front of a violent
      building belonging to the British diplomatic representation in Tehran.
      Dozens of them managed to enter the premises and were arrested by Iranian
      security forces (see photos below). [11]
