"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Iran is starting to get edgy over the investigations into bombings in Argentina that have been tied to Tehran.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned Argentina's top diplomat on Tuesday to complain about Argentine media reports that implicated Iran in the blowing up of a Jewish center in 1994, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

Of course the Ayatollahs in Iran don't understand the concept of a free press and independent judiciary so of course this would upset them.

La Nacion, a prominent Argentine daily, reported over the weekend that two Argentine prosecutors were seeking to question the former Iranian ambassador to Argentina and 21 other people, including high-ranking diplomats, who worked at the embassy at the time of the bombing. Eighty-five people were killed in the explosion at the Jewish center in Buenos Aires.

The newspaper said government officials were worried the request, now being considered by an Argentine judge, could anger the Iranian government.

Officials at the Argentine intelligence service have long implicated the Tehran government in the 1994 attack, along with the 1992 bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. Iran has consistently denied the charges.

In Tehran,apparently, this constitutes anti-Iranian sentiments.
