  •  What is it a signal of? (0+ / 0-)

    More Iranian bombings of Israeli and Jewish facilities abroad, like in Argentina under Khatami's past presidency?

    He seems like a nice guy domestically, and if I were Iranian I would take him against all comers, at least those vetted and cleared by the clerics who really run the country.  (My really preferred candidate would be a secularist Jewish lesbian.)  But that shouldn't be mistaken for someone who's going to be all sweetness and light.  You've got the good Khatami who chatted amiably with the president of Israel (the last one, who was born in Iran), and you've got the bad Khatami who either assented to the Argentina attacks or was completely in the dark about them, neither of which is very promising.
