Iran executes 'Mossad spy and murderer'

2012-05-15 11:02

Tehran - Iran hanged a man on Tuesday who was convicted of playing a key role in the 2010 murder of a top nuclear scientist and of spying for Israel, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"Majid Jamali Fashi, the Mossad spy and the person who assassinated Masoud Ali Mohammadi, our nation's nuclear scientist was hanged on Tuesday morning," IRNA said.

Local media reported on 28 August that Jamali Fashi was sentenced to death after being "convicted of Moharebeh [waging war against God] for placing a bomb-laden bike and blowing it up in front of martyr Ali Mohammadi's home, collaboration with the Zionist regime and Mossad."

Murder, spying

Jamali Fashi stood trial as the main suspect in the killing of Ali Mohammadi, a particle physics professor at Tehran University who was killed in a bomb attack outside his home in January 2010.

Jamali Fashi also faced charges of cooperating with Israel's spy agency and of having received $120 000 for passing on intelligence to Mossad, the website report added.

The Islamic republic has blamed the Jewish state and the United States for the killing of four of its scientists and nuclear experts since 2010.

Western powers and Israel suspect Iran is seeking an atomic weapons capability under the guise of its civilian nuclear and space programmes, a charge Tehran vehemently denies.

    When someone says we going to hang you for, "waging war against God" and at the same time are trying to build a nuclear weapon - you know planet earth is in trouble. A stupid terrorist is one thing - a scientifically advanced terrorist is far worse.

      Dont be such an eggplant Lesego. The apartheid regime in SA also hanged its opponents. Do you approve? Israel does not practice capital punishment, even for those proven to have committed terrorist murder against Israeli women and children. Israel respects life while Islam glorifies in killing. Sick.

    No he is not, he is an elected representative of a democratic country. You are an idiot troll. At least I know why I am here and what I am defending. Try answering the question. Did you approve of the apartheid regime hanging so-called ANC terrorists?

      Get a can opener, Lesego, and pry open your cranium for us, and let us know if there is anything there.

      Actually, you "think I need to open the debate up again to curb crime in South Africa now." Er, Einstein, the debate has been raging for twenty years now. Can I guide you to a few blogs on the issue please? I am sure you can enlighten them with your brand of contamination.

      If you were a white person you would understand the sarcasm that comes with being called an Einstein, Lesego. It is you who are the racist. Go onto my facebook profile and ask my non-white wife if she married a racist.

      Wassamatta Lesego? We have done this before chatting live on an evening and you klapped the sauce quite heavily then too. Drinking and blogging should come with a warning sign for those who can't handle it. Getting a little upset, are we? Please don't kick your dog because of me.

      Larry - 2012-05-17 09:30

      A whole what? You didn't finish your sentence Lesego. You should mention your drinking problem when you eventually see the shrink about your identity problem. I completely deny that I am racist. Typically, as an African, you accuse us of racism when we hold opposing views to your own. Don't just accuse, show us where I am being racist on any of my comments. News24 threads go back as far as you want. Find one comment that justifies your accusation and I will leave this News24 site forever. Dronkie.

      Patrick, Shame, if almost always EVERYONE would disagree with me, I would also get p.ssed !!!

      Larry, you deny being a racist, yet you think it is "typical" of Africans to accuse "you" of racism when you have opposing opinions. This is a stereotype. Stereotyping based on race or nationality is racist. I would kindly thank you to, as you put it yourself, leave this News24 site forever.

      Hlengiwe, it is 'typical' of Africans having dark pigmentation as it is 'typical' of Europeans having light pigmentation. Making a statement thereof does not a racist make. Lesego, it matters not if you are white or black or blue. What matters is that you engage with others on these threads from a dishonest platform. Perhaps you are simply naive, or typically dense, but it is quite easy to spot your pathos and lies. Every word you utter in these threads points to a profile, psychological and pathalogical which is easy to unravel, even for a half-intelligent lay-person. You are a pathalogical liar, and a racist of low self esteem. Sorry for you.

      Larry - 2012-05-17 19:22

      You are welcome to your opinions, and you are welcome to defend them (which you fail to do at every turn) Lesego. But do not intentionally clothe your anti-white and anti-Jewish opinions in the guise of coming from a white person. I know why you do this.

      Throughout history, even elected representatives of a democratic country can turn out to be deranged lunatics with megalomaniacal tendencies.

    The only victims of this war, are those non-political citizens and children of bothsides, who grow up in a society that advocates hatred and revenge as the only means of resolving issues. History will one day judge those who do today!
