Warriors of Jerusalem
Warriors of Jerusalem, a small group inferior to Guardians of Iranian
Revolution, revealed to be the suspect of a series of unidentified murders
in Turkey, primarily the murder of Ugur Mumcu, instead of Iranian
Intelligence Service (SAVAMA).
It has been claimed that the unit which includes a number of Iranian
Intelligence Service (SAVAMA) members, also works with experts on certain
fields and complies with Iran's "Islamic revolution ideal."
The Guardians of Revolution, which is also the biggest obstacle in front of
reformist President Mohammed Khatami, is alleged to be responsible of many
attacks both in and outside of Iran, by establishing certain units like the
"Warriors of Jerusalem."
leader Ayetullah Humeyni made a call and wanted to establish an
international Jerusalem army to save the sacred city from the occupation of
Israel. The suggestion discussed among the Islamic organisations both in
Iran and other countries close to Iranian regime for a long time and

claimed that some of the suspects of the case said the Iranian agents they
met in Iran and in Turkey told them that they were members of the "Warriors
of Jerusalem" group.

after day. But why? A high rank security official gives an answer that we
are all familiar with. "Because Iran wants instability in Turkey."
Then we ask him another question: "If Iran had used such groups against
Turkey, could Turkey have done the same against Iran as well?"
The official gives a brief answer:
"We don't ask this question. We even don't want to ask."
All is just a claim in the end. Some certain circles are alleged to
propogate Iranian revolution, Humeyni's and Tehran's regime in Turkey for
almost twenty years, and these people are infact used as a cat'spaw by
"Warriors of Jerusalem," which hasn't been a very well-known organ of the
Iranian state so far. This resulted in a series of political murders in
