"Iran's suicide bombers threaten to 'burn down' U.S. interests"

A senior commander of Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) vowed that following the printing of insulting cartoons of Islam's prophet Muhammad in European dailies, the Islamic Republic's suicide volunteers abroad were being placed on readiness alert to attack Unites States and Israeli interests.

Mohammad—Reza Jaafari, the commander of Iran's 'Lovers of Martyrdom Garrison' and a Brigadier General in the IRGC, said, 'Now that America is after gaining allies against the righteous Islamic Republic and wants to attack our sanctities, members of the martyrdom—seeking garrisons across the world have been put on alert so that if the Islamic Republic of Iran receives the smallest threat, the American and Israeli strategic interests will be burnt down everywhere'.

He was speaking to a group of suicide volunteers in Shahr—Rey, on the outskirts of Tehran, on Saturday evening.
