Why Iran's Revolutionary Guard wants to escort new Gaza flotilla
The Christain Science Monitor

Iran is worried that Turkey is stealing the limelight on an issue Tehran has championed since 1979: the Palestinian cause. So its Revolutionary Guard has offered to escort an Iranian Gaza flotilla.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today decried the “brutal and barbaric ... Zionist regime,” as if trying to catch up with Turkey's fierce criticism of Israel's raid on the "Freedom Flotilla" last week. In Istanbul for a regional security summit, he heralded the international outcry against Israel as a "reawakening of nations" in a fight of good versus evil.
