Israel PM - alert for more attacks

2012-07-22 16:28

Jerusalem - Israel's prime minister says his country is on alert for plots to kill more Israelis overseas.

Last week's deadly attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria came just before this week's opening of the London Olympics. It has fuelled speculation that Israeli athletes might be targeted next.

Benjamin Netanyahu told CBS TV's Face the Nation programme on Sunday, "We are vigilant about the possibility that they [Iran and its agents] would attack elsewhere, but I can't give specific details... I'm not confirming any information that we have on the Olympics."

Israel blames Iran and its proxies for the Bulgaria bombing and other plots against Israelis and Jews overseas over the past two years.

In 1972, 11 Israeli athletes were killed after they were abducted by Palestinians at the Munich Olympics.

    I think the Israelies must stop screwing around. Sort out the Iranian backed terrorists for good. Drive the fear of God into them.

      They've tried several times, and at each time getting egg all over their faces.

      Whatever give you pleasure, Fidel. Where is the egg though? What is the goal of Hisballah and what have they achieved? Nothing. Just like with the Gaza wars, the terrorists ululate when they are not defeated, as if to assure themselves that they are winners in the conflict with Israel, but Israel remains resolute and these agents of terror are impotent against Israel. What victories have Hamas or Hisballah gained, besides their ability to launch fireworks and the cowardly stealing across the Israeli border to kidnap a few soldiers? I'll take one of those sweets, thankyou.

      It's primarily up to the Iranian people to take back the government that has been stolen from them by the election-rigging, women stoning, terrorist-funding Iranian regime.

      The role of Hezbollah is to bankrupt the Zionist state, resulting in civil strife in Israel as seen in the past year.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-07-22 21:09

      It'll be a cold day in hell when Israel goes bankrupt. Totally delusional and counter-productive to the real plight of the Palestinian people.

      fidel.mgoqi - 2012-07-22 22:20

      Israel is already bankrupt morally! It is merely a dependent state. A bankrupt economy that solely relies on foreign aid to pay for its annual deficit for the past 60 odd years of existence.FACT!

      larry.lachman.54 - 2012-07-23 06:52

      Not the FACT, Fidel. Israel does not have a deficit. How about supporting your 'facts' with facts.

      @VoxPopuli - Shi'ite sponsored Terrorism is in fact worse, the Iranians are the greatest supporters and fundraisers of Hamas and Hezbollah

      fidel.mgoqi - 2012-07-23 08:14

      Hamas and Hezbollah are resistance movements, fighting land stealing murdering occupiers. It is greatly to Shia Iran's credit that they have taken up the struggle of the Palestinians. Larry, you don't sound convincing yourself, but never mind the evidence you can't see, what about the evidence you can, on a number of issues, including $3 billion yearly aid from the US. It's a commonly spun-out argument you have there, but considering News24 posters' love of 'evidence', I see you provide absolute none to refute my point.

    fidel.mgoqi: I've had the misfortune of reading some of your posts in other articles and to date have yet to see an ounce of truth or intelligence. Please refrain from posting.. you confirm time and again how shallow minded you are. You have no idea what's real and what's fiction/lies.. I thought one should debate facts with you, but its obvious that you are a troll because I cannot believe that one person could be so ignorant and obviously uneducated. Fidel, please hide your identity because their looking for guys like you who make perfect suicide bombers...

      fidel.mgoqi - 2012-07-23 13:12

      In other words, you have no counter argument. Or in the words of Cicero "When you have no basis for an argument, abuse the plaintiff."
