"Cleric Raps World Powers for Taking Orders from Zionist Regime" (Fars News-Iran)

Nicely paranoid title. Of course, the control mechanism isn't anything so crude as issuing orders:
Tehran's provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami lambasted the world powers attending talks with Iran for surrendering to the destructive positions and policies of the Zionist regime.

The G5+1 (The US, Britain, France, China, and Russia plus Germany) should correct its approach toward Iran in the upcoming nuclear talks, Khatami said in his 2nd sermon here Friday.

He noted that the demands of the G5+1 from Iran in Moscow nuclear talks had been underlined and stated by the Zionist regime Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu before the negotiations and this means the influence of Tel-Aviv on the process of decision making in the group.

"The West's current approach in negotiations with Tehran could result in a deadlock in the talks; any deadlock in Iran and G5+1's negotiations will definitely harm the western countries in the first place."

Khatami said that talks for the sake of talks is fruitless, noting that Iran will attend the upcoming meetings with G5+1 to contribute to the progress of the negotiations forward.

Earlier, a senior Iranian lawmaker had also warned the western countries party to the talks with Iran not to be influenced by the Zionist regime which tries to induce the West to practice its evil thoughts to spoil the constructive atmosphere of interaction between the two sides.

"If the West, specially the European Union, wants to reach a result in its negotiations with Iran, it should resort to logic and not to be influenced by the Zionists," Mohammad Esmayeel Kosari told FNA earlier this month. [...]
According to another Fars headline, "Intelligence Minister Warns of Plots to Separate Iran from Islam:"
Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi warned of enemies' plots against the country, and said the enemies are striving to separate Islam from Iran.

They seek to eliminate Islam from Iran, Moslehi underlined on Thursday.

Moslehi also said that the ring leader of a terrorist group involved in assassination of a number of Iranian nuclear scientists was arrested.

Addressing the fourth meeting on human rights themed as 'Human Rights and National Security', he said that during an operation, the ring leader of the terrorist group was arrested.

Global arrogance is well aware that the recent arrest has dealt a serious blow to it, he said.

Foreign intelligence services have paid heavy costs to back opposition groups inside and outside the country and this proves that they are still continuing their support for dissidents and are masterminding various plots, said the minister.
Doesn't develop the idea of separating Iran from Islam much, does it?
