Firecracker tossed at Ahmadinejad’s car

4/8/2010

Looks like Ahmadinejad is getting a little paranoid.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was unhurt on Wednesday after an explosive device, officially described as a firecracker, went off near his motorcade.

This comes after he claimed, on Monday, that the Israelis were hiring hit men to kill him.

“Stupid Zionists have hired mercenaries to assassinate me,” Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech to expatriate Iranians on Monday.

I don’t have all the details, but I’m willing to bet that if Israel really, seriously wanted Ahmadinejad dead, they’d use something bigger than a firecracker.
