Chairman of Iran's Expediency Council Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi warns the United States and the Israeli regime are behind a “dangerous and treacherous” plot to partition Iraq, following an independence referendum held in the Arab country’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

“It is crystal clear that the US and Israel are the architects of this dangerous move and plot in the region and they seek to create a new Israel in the region,” Hashemi Shahroudi said during a meeting of the council in Tehran on Saturday.

He expressed great sorrow over efforts to instigate another act of sedition in Iraq’s Kurdistan region and break up the Muslim country, emphasizing that the secessionist “move is undoubtedly a major act of treachery against the region and the Muslim world.”

The senior Iranian cleric added that the US was playing a “dangerous” role in regional developments and noted Washington supported the Kurdistan independence referendum and sought to compel Baghdad to accept the secession plan.

However, Hashemi Shahroudi, said the Iraqi government and nation were vigilant and “regional countries, including the Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey, have adopted a firm and principled stance vis-à-vis this new plot.”

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) held a non-binding referendum on September 25 on secession from the central government in Baghdad in defiance of Iraq’s stiff opposition.

Major regional and international parties have voiced serious concern over the secessionist move, saying it would compound the problems of the country, which is already busy with counter-terrorism operations against the Daesh terrorist group.

Iran and Turkey had warned that the controversial vote could lead to further instability in the entire Middle East, a region already ravaged by numerous conflicts and terror threats.

    In the press materials for Matthew McIntosh's new 1,660-page brick of a very literary novel, TheMystery.doc , the publisher says not to be fooled by the book's length. Sure, it weighs 4 1/2 pounds, but they cheerfully insist that "it reads as quickly as a novel of a more conventional length." That is a lie. It doesn't read anything like a traditional novel — not as quickly, not as smoothly, not as satisfyingly, none of it. McIntosh's second book reads shattered. It reads fragmentary. It r…
