A mysterious group who call themselves the Fedayeen-i-Islam made a phone call to Al Arabiya TV in Islamabad and claimed responsibility for the deadly bombing that left 53 dead and a massive crater 30 feet deep and 60 feet wide (reported dimensions vary).
But just who is the Fedayeen-i-Islam?
As it turns out they are a Islamic fundamentalist group based in Iran. How surprising!
Fred Halliday, professor of Middle Eastern Affairs and expert on Iran, and who is a Fellow of the Transnational Institute (TNI) and serves as their special advisor on Middle Eastern, Central Asian and Eastern European matters, wrote about the Fedayeen-i-Islam in 2004.
In an article titled “Terrorism in Historical Perspective” he identifies the Fedayeen-i-Islam as an Iranian religious group.
This article was based on a talk at Goodenough House in November 2003.

Muriel Mirak-Weissbach writes in LaRouche’s Executive Intelligence Review that Khalil Talmsibi, a member of the Iranian nationalistic religious organization, Fedayeen-i-Islam assassinated General Ali Razmara who had been imposed upon the Iranian people as Prime Minister by the British in order to secure their interests in APOC or the Anglo-Persion Oil Company (established in 1909 and subsequently controlled by the British Admiralty under the direction of Winston Churchhill). APOC would later be renamed British Petroleum in 1954.
The assassination of Razmara by the Iranian nationalist group Fedayeen-i-Islam paved the way for Mossadeq to ascend as Iranian Prime Minister in 1951 following the nationalisation of APOC by the Iranian Senate renaming it as the National Iranian Oil Company or NIOC.
Of course retaining control of Iranian oil for the benefit of Iranian people could not be tolerated by the international corporatocracy and immediately, that same year (1951), President Truman and Winston Churchhill determined that a regime change in Iran was called for. The plan to overthrow Mossadeq would be carried out by British agents and brothers Allen Dulles and John Dulles. In 1953 Allen Dulles would become the first director of the CIA. In 1961 President Kennedy forced Dulles to resign. After Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Allen Dulles would be appointed one of seven members of the Warren Commission to investigate Kennedy’s murder.
In the book “Terrorism in Context” Jerrold D. Green writes that the Fedayeen-i Islam was founded in 1946 by 22 year old theology student in Tehran named Sayyid Navab Safavi. The group is described as a fundamentalist Islamic group calling for a return to shari’a (Islamic Law).
Jerrold goes on to say that the Fedayeen-i Islam “rapidly became pawns in a high-stakes competition for power.”
In 1965 the Iranian Prime Minister Hassan Mansur is assassinated by religious students thought to be affiliated with the Fedayeen-i Islam. “Mansur was assassinated for his well-known support for foreign oil concessions.”
