Was one of them named Chomsky?

Rajai-Far's claim seems unlikely. From
Thirty five Jews volunteered to carry out suicide attacks against Israel in the service of an Islamic terrorist organization, claimed the head of an Iranian terrorist organization, "The Committee for the Commemoration of the Martyrs of the Global Islamic Campaign."

Members of the organization said that they planned to send the terrorists to Israel via Britain.

The Mahar news agency reported that the terror chief, Faruz Rajai-Far, told a Teheran conference that the organization's website registered 55,000 volunteers from all over the world to carry out suicide bombings. The volunteers, he claimed, included 35 Jews who don't live in Iran, as well as a number of Christians and other citizens. At the same time, the organization's website has been taken down, and cannot be viewed.
Is the "Mahar news agency" the same as Mehr? I couldn't find this story at Mehr's English website. At times like these I wish I could read Farsi. (Hat tip: Yeshivah World)

A related development.
