A prominent Iranian conservative political party has announced it is registering volunteers to fight against Israel in response to the attacks against the Hamas-ruled Gaza that have killed more than 300 people. The party, the Combatant Clergy Society or Jame-e-Roohaniat-e-Mobarez, has provided three options for the volunteers on its website to fight Israel, including in the military, financial and publicity fields. The group said Monday it decided to sign up volunteers after Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, issued a religious decree to world Muslims Sunday, saying anybody killed while defending Palestinians in Gaza would be considered a martyr.
