New 'moderate' Iranian President involved in AMIA bombing, son suicided over father's extremism

The liberal media in the West has been trying to pass off new Iranian President Hassan Rohani as a 'moderate.' But the more we look into Rohani's record, the more we see that he's just another Islamist Iranian cleric - and a pretty nasty one at that. Washington Free Beacon's Alana Goodman reports on Rohani's involvement in the 1994 AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires that murdered 85 people.
Former Iranian intelligence official Abolghasem Mesbahi, who defected from Iran in the late 1990s, testified that the decision to launch the attack was made within a special operations committee connected to the powerful Supreme National Security Council in August 1993.
According to the 2006 indictment, Mesbahi testified that Rowhani, who was then serving as secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, was also a member of the special committee when it approved the AMIA bombing.
“With regard to the committee’s role in the decision to carry out the AMIA attack, Moghadam stated that this decision was made under the direction of Ali Khamenei, and that the other members of the committee were [then-Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi] Rafsanjani, Mir Hejazi, Rowhani, Velayati and Fallahijan,” the indictment says.
Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei led the special committee, according to the indictment, and Khamenei and Rafsanjani made the ultimate decision to go ahead with the attack.
And while the Western media is falling all over itself to declare Rohani a 'moderate,' his own son certainly didn't feel that way. Tom Gross blogs a report from the London pan-Arabic daily al-Sharq al-Awsat that Rohani's son committed suicide due to Rohani's extremism.
The leading London-based pan-Arab newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat reports today that Iranian President-Elect Hassan Rouhani’s eldest son took his own life in 1992, in protest at his father’s involvement with Iran’s murderous Islamic regime and his father’s close ties to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
“I hate your government, your lies, your corruption, your religion, your double acts and your hypocrisy,” wrote the future president’s son in his suicide note, according to the Saudi-owned paper. “I am ashamed to live in such an environment where I’m forced to lie to my friends each day, telling them that my father isn’t part of all of this. Telling them my father loves this nation, whereas I believe this to be not true. It makes me sick seeing you, my father, kiss the hand of Khamenei.”
The official Iranian press, which is controlled by Khamenei, has admitted that Rouhani’s eldest son committed suicide in 1992 but the regime’s media denied it was a political act.
Some moderate.
