1. YNet picked up on a startling revelation about the “moderate” Hassan Rohani:

. . . his elder son took his own life in 1992 in protest of his father’s close connection with 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, published in London by exiled Iranian political commentator Ali Reza Nouri.

Official Iranian press attributed the young man’s suicide to unrequited love.

2. Times of Israel: An unidentified Mideast state is reportedly supplying Syrian rebels with sophisticated anti-tank missiles. How’s this for irony? The Konkurs missiles were Soviet made.

3. What was Mohammed Morsi thinking? The new governor of Luxor appointed by the president is a member of Al-Gamaa al-Islamiya. That’s the Islamic terror group responsible for the Luxor massacre. The 1997 attack killed 58 foreign tourists, and four Egyptians inside the Temple of Hatshepsut as well as the local tourism industry. According to The Independent and Daily Mail, locals are going bonkers.

Al-Gamaa al-Islamiya also tried to assassinate Hosni Mubarak and was implicated in the assassination of Anwar Sadat.

4. Moderate is a Relative Term in the Mideast: Hassan Rohani’s presidential debut is getting the same wishful media spin as Bashar Assad 13 years ago.
