February 12, 2012
February 10, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to PressTV and the Fars News Agency [both semi-official instruments of the Iranian government] Hamas' Prime Minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniya, arrived in Tehran today for a three day flurry of meetings with the country's leadership.
As PressTV [see, http://www.presstv.ir/detail/226022.html] reports the matter, Haniya will meet all of Iran's top level officials:
"During his stay in Iran, Haniyeh will meet and confer with the high-ranking Iranian officials, including the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi, and Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili."
According to the Khaleej Times Haniya is scheduled to speak, along with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, at an event celebrating the Mullocracy's 33rd anniversary [see, http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticle08.asp?col=§ion=middleeast&xfile=data/middleeast/2012/February/middleeast_February315.xml].
No doubt Haniya and the Ayatollahs will be coordinating policy as international economic pressure on Iran increases. The urgent nature of these talks is underlined by the fact that Haniya seldom travels outside of Gaza, fearing he is a marked man.
