    Former Iranian president Mohammed Khatami reportedly announced on Monday his withdrawal from the country's presidential election in June.

    Reuters quoted a close Khatami ally as saying, "He has decided to withdraw ... but he will back another moderate candidate who will be announced shortly in a statement."

    No reason was given for the decision to withdraw from the presidential race.

    Are you kidding me? Who WOULD want the job only to become zionisms latest scapegoat target? Do you think any iranian DOESN:T realize that whoever takes that role already has an israeli target on his back?
