Iran Kills Nuclear Professor and Accuses U.S. and Israel?

An Iranian university professor working at a key nuclear facility in Tehran was  killed in a bomb attack by two motorcyclists on Wednesday. Iranian government officials immediately blamed Israel saying “These terrorist actions bring the arrogant government [Israel] closer to collapse”. The Iranian government is the one who says the 9/11 attacks were executed by the U.S. itself, just to give the Americans an excuse to attack Afghanistan. Do you understand where I am going with this?

The tensions between Iran, Israel and the US are sky rocketing, and the three are becoming masters of the blame-game. Iran calls America the “cause of corruption on earth.” America and Israel accuse Iran of building a nuclear bomb. Iran accuses America for nearly everything that is going wrong in the world. America ties a Washington DC terror plot to Iran. Iran kills a nuclear professor and says it was Israel.

Oops… Did I give it away?

As an Iranian Jew born and raised in Iran, I feel compassion for my country. After leaving Iran, I have always tried make the West feel more compassion for Iranians, while trying to convince fellow Jews that Iran is not a dangerous place.  Meanwhile, I have been observing the news coming out of the Iranian media and comparing it to America and Israel. Have you ever heard the age-old adage, “History tends to repeat itself?”

No need to go back 100 years. Forget, even, the chain assassinations of Iranian reporters, diplomats and artists 30 years ago by the Iranian government.

As recently as  June 2009, right after the Iranian elections, thousands of Iranians flooded the streets to show their dissatisfaction with the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while gaining the world’s attention via Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. The movement was reportedly the first cyber-revolution, well before the Arab Spring. Many Iranian protesters including an ordinary and modern girl, Neda Agha-Soltan were shot to death by the Iranian government, which was filmed raw by observers’ cell phone cameras and immediately posted on the Internet. It could not have gotten any more obvious: An Iranian government military Basij member shot the girl to death.

Guess who was blamed for Neda’s death by the Iranian government? Britain and the U.S.!

I have never thought there would be war between Israel and Iran, probably due to economic pressures.  The world is dependent on Iran’s oil, and Iran is playing a very good game by closing the strait of Hormuz. Many Iranian Jews remained in Iran after the revolution, and even have a member in the Islamic Republic Parliament.

But a government with a mindset and belief that a country like America is capable of attacking its own World Trade Center and kill thousands of people just to find an excuse to attack another country, is probably capable of doing such things itself. The timing of the recent assassination of a nuclear professor and the immediate blame on Israel was both expected and alarming.

    It could be argued the responsibility within Irans Republican Guard. A faction of the guard is known to oppose the government, there have been killings over the pasy tear. Mostly suppressed from the news media by Iran.
    But factions seem to be eanting western intervention along the Libyan lines to start a proper attempt to overthrow the Iranian Government. Was Israel ultimately responsible, perhaps for hardware and planning – would not suprise, but this acyton had to be carried out with serious on the ground assistance. Iranian Republican Guard “dissidents” working alongside the Mossad and CIA, and getting actual results on the ground – thats an Ayatollahs nightmare. Long may it continue – if it turns out to be the case of course.

    let’s begin in some historical facts about Israel:

    In 1947, the UN approved the partiton plan, which means dividing the country for the jewish people and the arabs.
    the jewish people accepted that plan, however, the Arabs did not. In fact, some Arab nations declared a war against the new jewish state (The war of Independence), israel won and the state established.
    in 1967, again, some nations (including: Egypt, Syrian, Jordaמ)planned to destroy the israel state. israel ruined that plan by 6 days war.
    in 1973, again, some Arab nations declared a war, it was “Yom Kipur War”, but in the end israel defend itself from total destruction, again.
    of course, there are some terror groups such as “Hammas”, “Hizzbhala”, “The Islamic Jihad” and more which do NOT accepting the existence of Israel at all, and murder israel civilians by terror attacks such as suicde attacks, rockets,kidnapping and so on (by the way, those groups get financial support and weapons from Iran government)

    So, Israel did not invade nations, Israel defend itself from total destruction.

    furthermore, Iran’s leaders said, many times, that the Israel state should be wiped out from the map. A state that threating another state like that, and in the same time develop a nuclear weaopn… well, no need to be Sherlock Holmes.
    I suppose that Israel need again, to defend itself from a total destructaion.

      >So, Israel did not invade nations, Israel defend itself from total destruction.

      Lebanon?

      And how exactly would Iran, a nation with a military so weak they needed to strap bombs to children and send them at Iraqi tanks do this total destruction thing?

      How many billions does Isreal spend on their army? Iran has the latest in American tech as well does it?

      See for a threat to be threatening there needs to be a threat.

      Ah logic, not as much fun as shrieking KILL THEM ALLLLLL!

      • ProIran

        Iran in fact does have a very powerful military. All Iranian men are required to serve in the army for two years.

      • Fefer

        The first Lebanon war occurred because few reassons:

        Terror Organizations launched many missiles from lebanon territory targeting Israel civilians and caused panic, damage and casualties.

        Abu Nidal Organization’s assassination attempt against Israel’s ambassador to the United Kingdom, Shlomo Argov

        Syrian army invaded Lebanon and protected those organizations.

        So, Israel did not invade Lebanon purposelessly, only to defend Israel’s citizen.

        About Iran,
        It’s not a secret that Terror Organizations get funding from Iran government. why?

        The national education system in Iran educate to hate the west and the zionists. why?

        The Iraniaמ government blocking websites such as google and facebook etc. and prevent the freedom of speech. why?

        The Iraniaמ government increased the development of Military Industry (such as “Shahab” Rockets that can carry nuclear warhead which have over 2000 km range) why?

        the Iraniaמ government is opposing opposition by force. why?

        Iraniaמ government develop nuclear weapon. why? for what?

          >The first Lebanon war occurred because few reassons:

          And the second? And the third? And how many times have they invaded again? And howd that work out for Israel? Solve any problems? Lenbanon a secure state with no terrorist ties?

          Oh and let’s say that it turns out that Israel is killing Iranian civilians that would mean, by your own reasoning, that they have every right to invade.

          >Iraniaמ government develop nuclear weapon. why? for what?

          Answer to all: the same reason why Israel does / did / will do all that; theocratic controlled governments and people that live in fear and loathing.

          I know, I know, you’re the good guys, they’re the bad guys, Israel has never done anything wrong and if they did they had a good reason and other countries do worse things yadayada.

    I know, Radical Islam isn’t a nation, but it’s the ideological base for all the terror attacks against the west. I just took your template for the sentences.

    Iran is the number one supporter of the Islamic terror organizations ant it “invades” other countries by providing financing and weapons to the terrorist who carry out attacks in those countries.

    The west is rightfully concerned that the Iranian atomic technology might “invade” their countries via a terror organization that will get it, like many other weapons in the past, from Iran.

      >I know, Radical Islam isn’t a nation, but it’s the ideological base for all the terror attacks against the west.

      Actually the West experiences a fraction of the terrorist attacks from radical Islam, the number one victim of Muslim terrorists are Muslims.

      >Iran is the number one supporter of the Islamic terror organizations ant it “invades” other countries by providing financing and weapons to the terrorist who carry out attacks in those countries.

      And when Western powers do it? Do you know how many IRA bombs have been paid for by Americans? Israel using Canadian passports to cover their foreign bombings, what would you call that? How about the drone strikes in Pakistan? the whole invasion of Iraq?

      Oh and the murder of Iranian scientist, what’s that if not terrorism?

      It’s fascinating how it’s terrorism when someone else does it.

      >The west is rightfully concerned that the Iranian atomic technology might “invade” their countries via a terror organization that will get it, like many other weapons in the past, from Iran.

      Yeah, it’s actually not that easy to make nuclear weapons and it’s even harder to develop an effective delivery system and even if Iran could manage it, then what? They throw their one nuke at Israel and they responds with their hundreds of nukes? Not a very sound strategy that.

      Oh and how many of the 911 terrorists were from Iran again? Connection?

      Iran is not a threat to anyone other than Iranians.

  • TCMSOLS

    I don’t understand we killed over 1 million men, women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan, DU they got two heads. But we cannot kill 75% with a 25% collateral damage. That’s the Red line?

  • TCMSOLS

    Let us kill the children, the third tier, cause a skills shortage. If you don’t have foundations you can’t build a house or bomb.

  • TCMSOLS

    We should kill their students, before they enter the nuclear program. The engineers and scientists are all in their thirties and early forties, aiming at the third tier will kill the program. Sure using profiling there is a 25% collateral damage risk. There is a 75% accuracy in predicting future recruits into the program. They simple cannot provide CPP to that number of people.

    did you know there are Americans with, what you call, a mindset and belief that a country like America is capable of attacking its own World Trade Center and kill thousands of people just to find an excuse to attack another country.
    I’ve been studying 9/11 for 3 years and know without any doubt at all that Muslim terrorists didn’t commit the crimes of 9/11. Go ahead call me the usual names you’ve been programmed to call me but please let’s discuss this. Americans need to know the Truth.

        I didn’t read your article BUT I’ll be willing to debate you about the TRUTH of 9/11. Apparently you don’t have a clue.
        Salvage, I’m hoping there are a lot of Americans that think exactly like you.

      • salvage

        So that would be Iran hasn’t invaded anyone and Israel and America have invaded dozens?

        You are confused “Radical Islam” isn’t a nation.

        Iran isn’t a “good” country by any stretch of the imagination but one of the ways that the bad guys stay in power is by using Israeli and American aggression as an excuse to suppress opposition.

        Of course America has done nothing but good for Iran like the invasion of Iraq, (which I assume you supported as well) a once hated foe is now growing into an ally. How cool is that for Iran? Frees up all kinds of resources to do other stuff.

        Remember when Ronald Reagan sold weapons to Iran? Do you think that was a good idea? Good for Iran of course.

        • Iran may have not (openly) invaded another country after its regime change, but it has a history of shooting at its own people and blaming it on others.

          • salvage

            They secretly invade other nations then? How does that work I wonder, can you explain it?

            And sure, like I said Iran’s biggest threat is to Iranians.

            Of course it’s possible that these scientists have been killed by internal forces. Iran is a twisted theocratic state (of course is there any other kind?) so who knows what agendas are at play but it would be more than a little surprising to learn that Israel has had nothing to do with it. Israel has always ejected international law, morality and even sense in pursuit of security. This sort of criminality would certainly fit their MO.
