Paranoia Reaches New Heights in Iran
Let's see, the Catholic Pope makes comments that strike a nerve with Muslims, and it's all the fault of the Jews? It just boggles the mind.
Iranian hardline newspapers said there were signs of an Israeli-US plot behind remarks by Pope Benedict XVI that linked Islam to violence and created a wave of anger across the Muslim world.
The daily Jomhuri Islami said Israel and the United States -- the Islamic republic's two arch-enemies -- could have dictated the comments to distract attention from the resistance of the Shiite militant group Hezbollah to Israel's offensive on Lebanon.
