Ali Larijani, the chairman of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, denied in an interview with Newsweek that Iran was providing arms to the Hamas. He admitted, however, that his country was funneling finances to the Islamic group, as well as to Hizbullah. "We do support Hizbullah and Hamas, that is right," Larijani said. "But these two are not terrorist groups. These are the two groups that are defending their own land."There's a post to be written about Newsweek letting a terrorist supporter rationalize his terrorist supporting ways in their august pages (we recall how during WWII Mussolini was regularly interviewed by American press outlets "to help the American people understand", right?) But that's a post for a different time. For now: it turns out that Sunnis and Shiites do work together. Who knew?
