Beware the Ides of Qods...

Or at least that's what Iranian flack Gholam-Hossein Elham said during a comment about Sec of State Rice visiting "occupied Palestine".

Zionist regime's allies to receive response on World Qods Day

Is it just me, or does this sound like a thinly veiled threat to you, too?

Referring to the approaching World Qods Day, the spokesman stressed, "Supporters of the Zionist regime will definitely receive the final response for their support on that day."
About World Qods Day:
Qods Day is held each year on the last Friday of Muslims fasting month of Ramadan after it was nominated by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, as a day to voice the protest of the Islamic Ummah against the Zionists. The day falls on October 12 this year.
I guess it's not to be confused with International Qods Day which will be held on October 5th according to the Coordination Council of the Islamic Propagation Organization (IPO)... (Yikes! The Coordination Council of the Islamic Propagation Organization??? Now there's theocracy run amok for ya!) Their statement goes on to advise that:
The International Qods Day is observed in all Islamic nations to demonstrate the support of Muslims worldwide for the Palestinian people suffering from occupation and hardship.

Millions of people take to streets on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan calling for an end to occupation of Palestinian territories.
