“An airplane flew over Deylam today. Minutes later, there was an explosion,” spokesman Jahanbakhsh Khanjani told The Associated Press.
The port city of Dailam with an area of 2022 Sq Km is situatet in the northern eend of Bushehr province, and on account of its extent, it is considered as the seventh city of Bushehr province. This port city with a population of 2507 people is comprising of two central districts and bahrakan, two townships and four rural districts. The distance between this port city and province center is 197 Km. The mound and ruins of ancient Mahrooban port is located on te seacoast approx. 10 km of Bandare Dailam
Abraham ibn Daud of Toledo, Spain, in The Book of Tradition (1161):
"You will find the communities of Israel spread abroad... as far as Dailam and the river Itil where live Khazar peoples who became proselytes. The Khazar king Joseph sent a letter to Hasdai ibn-Shaprut and informed him that he and all his people followed the rabbinical faith. We have seen descendants of the Khazars in Toledo, students of the wise, and they have told us that the remnant of them is of the rabbinical belief."
The Buyids were leaders of the Daylamite people from the area southwest of the Caspian Sea. These hardy mountaineers had taken advantage of the prevailing anarchy to take over much of western Iran in 934, and they now moved into Iraq. Mu'izz ad-Dawlah established himself in Baghdad, but his regime never ruled over all of Iraq. In the capital itself there was always tension between the Daylamites and the Turks who had traditionally been the main military force.
there was further, often violent, tension between their supporters and the Sunnites, who were in the majority. Baghdad began to disintegrate into a number of small communities, each either Sunnite or Shi'ite and each with its own walls to protect it from its neighbours. Large areas, including much of the Round City of al-Mansur, fell into ruin. Further problems were caused by the loss of control of Al-Jazirah [...]Baghdad presented a picture of devastation in this period. Brigands maintained themselves by kidnapping and extortion, and disputes between the Sunnites and the Shi'ites became increasingly violent.
Kurdish aspirations for a semi-autonomous Kurdistan within Iraq were given a strong fillip by Sunday's official election results, which gave the main Kurdish parties more than a quarter of the overall vote.

apparently there is no explosion now
the tale keeps spinning!
Don't the residents know there is a damn being built? Don't they know the difference between a missle and a fuel tank and nothing at all? If these eyewitness reports were flawed, why? Was it the witnesses, the media, the army?
