Israel accuses Iran of bombings

2012-02-13 17:04

Jerusalem - Israel's prime minister has accused Iran of being behind a pair of car bombings against Israeli diplomatic targets in India and Georgia.

Benjamin Netanyahu told a meeting of lawmakers from his Likud Party on Monday that he believed the Iranians were responsible for the attacks in New Delhi and Tbilisi. Two people were wounded in India and the bomb in Georgia was discovered before it went off.

Netanyahu said Israel has thwarted other attacks in recent months in Azerbaijan, Thailand and elsewhere.

"In all those cases, the elements behind these attacks were Iran and its protégé Hezbollah," he said.

Iran has accused Israel of involvement in a series of killings of officials and scientists involved in its controversial nuclear programme.

      Your assumption is that is was israel that planted the bomb. many countries want irans nuclear ambitions to end.

      Which countries? Arabs in a recent Brookings poll rank the major threats to the region as Israel (88 percent), the United States (77 percent) and Iran (10 percent). Opinion poll after opinion poll shows that the U.S., including the Obama administration, are strongly disliked across the middle east, and are seen as a major threat. And that the people of the middle east simply want them to butt out of their affairs. If they care so much about democracy in the region, maybe they should heed those wishes, and leave them alone. http://aai.3cdn.net/5d2b8344e3b3b7ef19_xkm6ba4r9.pdf http://www.brookings.edu/~/media/Files/rc/reports/2010/08_arab_opinion_poll_telhami/08_arab_opinion_poll_telhami.pdf

    I think I understand why America is supporting Israel with money and arms - they want he Jews and Muslims to kill one another, so that only Christianity (and oil) remains.

      Look no further than the people who established and own the Federal Reserve.

      Thankfully the level of intelligence and accuracy of these comments are so low they have close to zero effect. Stupid and uninformed fails to capture their ignorance.

      One more thing Patrick: you're a rotten anti-semite and a liar.

    Yawn, there they go again.

    Attacking a woman's car on her way to pick up her kids from school is not comparable to any attack on an Iranian A-bomb scientists ... then again... what u expect from the Ayatollahs - they don't like women much anyways. funny how Israel takes out Iranians in Iran - but Iran has to travel to India to target an Israeli women... much like the 1 Israeli for 1000 Palestinians exchange... the value of life of the one verses the other can not be debated. The backlash for Iran will come from India, rather than Israel.

      If you are totally uncomfortable at any time - excuse yourself and go to the bathroom. No big deal. You work for a Jewish owned company? Is that why you fixated by them and resent them? I pray to God you not working for me!

    America has no funds left for any immediate military conflict...They will try anything to avoid military action against Iran and push for Diplomatic solutions..(Verry nervous)They currently have the highest debt in the world ! If Israel should attact Iran in the next few monts the global economy will collapse in one week.Iran is fully aware of that and will continue their nuclear programme as scheduled.The current daily conflict is just symptoms of a world war that already started,like a bad cold before pneumonia. The world all over is sick and needs urgent treatment.

    Israel accuses and cries foul when things don't go its way and about terror attacks. But we shouldn't forget the people in Palestine that Israel has displaced, made their lives miserable, stolen their property and whom have suffered under the State of Israel. Unfortunately, there are always 2 sides to a story.
