Iran to Hamas: "Wait quietly; in four months we'll have a dramatic announcement"

More fright-scares from Iran. Most likely the expected announcement from Iran is that they have a working nuclear reactor. From Maariv's Hebrew edition, Dec. 15, 2006, no link provided:

"Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh received a promise from Iran of extensive economic aid, cash, military cooperation, and also good news, from his perspective. Lower your profile, calm the situation, the Iranians told Haniyeh. In four months we're going to issue a statement that will dramatically change the strategic balance in the Middle East. According to Israeli intelligence, the Iranians have promised to make an important announcement at the next Persian new year, which begins the third week in March 2007."
