AHMAD VAHIDI IRAN’S NEW DEFENCE MINISTER

.>

 

* Ahmad Vahidi was in the late 80s’ the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard expedition in Lebanon. He was in charge of the formation and training of the Hizbullah and coordinated with Imad Mughniyah some of the most audacious terror attacks in Lebanon, including the kidnapping and, in many cases, the assassination of dozens of Westerners in Lebanon, including USA officials such as Marine Corps Lt. Col. William R. Higgins kidnapped and murdered by Iranian-backed terrorists while serving with a U.N. peacekeeping force in Lebanon in 1988.

In the years 1992-1994 Brig. Gen. Ahmad  Vahidi headed the Al-Qudas Force, the executive apparatus of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to export the Islamic revolution from Iran to the Muslim World.

As such Ahmad  Vahidi orchestrated the attacks against Jewish and Israeli institutions such as the 03/17/1992 and the 07/18/1994 bombings in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He also coordinated the Hizbullah operations overseas through Imad Mughniyah. 85 people were killed in these attacks.

An international arrest warrant was issued by an Argentinean judge, on 11/09/2006, against Ahmad  Vahidi for his suspected involvement in the bombings.

In the recent years Ahmad  Vahidi was the Deputy Head of MODAFL (Ministry of Defense Armed Forces Logistics in Iran).

On 06/24/2008, Ahmad  Vahidi was listed by the European Union as a person linked to Iran’s proliferation-sensitive nuclear activities or Iran’s development of nuclear weapon delivery systems. With some exceptions, and within their jurisdiction, European Union member states must freeze all funds and economic resources owned, held or controlled by the person, and must also ensure that funds or economic resources are not made available to or for the benefit of the listed person.

On Thursday 08/20/2009 Ahmad  Vahidi was nominated by the controversial Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the next Iranian Defense Minister.
