Mossad killed Iranian scientist - report

2011-08-02 16:02

Berlin - The Israeli secret service Mossad was responsible for the assassination last month of an Iranian scientist in Tehran, Germany's Spiegel Online news website reported.

The killing of Dariush Rezaei-Nejad was "the first serious action taken by the new Mossad chief Tamir Pardo", according to an unidentified Israeli intelligence source quoted by Spiegel Online.

Iranian press reports said Rezaei-Nejad was shot five times by unknown assailants as he and his wife were waiting for their child in front of a kindergarten in Tehran on July 23. His wife was wounded in the attack.

The Iranian government blamed the United States and Israel for the attack, the latest in a series targeting Iranian nuclear scientists who are suspected by the West to be working on a nuclear weapon programme.

Tehran denies it has such a programme and insists that its atomic activities are entirely peaceful.

Rezaei-Nejad is believed to have worked on the trigger mechanism for nuclear weapons, Spiegel Online said in its report first published on Monday.

    Iran, just admit it, you ARE developing nuclear weapons! Ahmadinejad's actions say it all.

      jowza - 2011-08-02 16:29

      so is israel

      Scrutineer - 2011-08-02 16:32

      At least Israel is not trying to hide it.

      Martin du Plessis - 2011-08-02 16:34

      Israel isn't developing Nuclear weaponry, they've had it for almost 30 years now.

      Nick Tarr - 2011-08-02 16:37

      Someone needs to brush up on thier history. Isreal tried to hide it but a whistleblower outed them. They had been secretely developing a stockpile of nuclear weapons for years before it was uncovered.

      Ridah Booley - 2011-08-02 16:55

      Nick Tarr is correct... then again, they dont want Iran to own the weapons. Yet everyone else can. So who decides whom gets what? The US? Nato?

    These nations are at war, although not conventional yet. Thanks to the media doing their best to demonize Israel, and not mentioning why this scientist was killed...Iran is building nuke bombs and intend to use them to commit a second holocaust, and this is no secrect as it's mr awantajihad's mantra for some time now. Israel has nukes for self defence, no problem with that, even SA had the, but when you intend on using them to commit genocide, then it's another story.

      Scrutineer - 2011-08-02 17:01

      Yes, Ahmadinejad has already openly declared war against Israel. So what's wrong when Israel answers in this way?

      battle4truth - 2011-08-02 17:04

      nothing, it's business as usual. Fact, All nations that came against Israel seizes to exist in time, so be carefull there is Someone fighting for them : )

      pierreedge - 2011-08-02 17:05

      what's wrong??? simple, in war soldiers kill soldiers, not civilians in front of their wife and kids. Well at least civilised countries.... And answering what exactly??? did iran send a gand of mudreres there to kill some isrealui scientists? NO, so use your brain before posting kak

      Onnest - 2011-08-02 17:07

      Seems you have it the wrong way around. The media has been demonizing Iran, Israel the 'holy' land could never do anything wrong...the media does quite a good job of making Israel look good at doing evil things. Besides, if Israel has nukes why cant Iran. I think I trust the Iranians more than I trust the Israelis. When last did Iran go bombing other states? Israel does it quite often, but they are allowed to cause they are the chosen ones from the promise land (whatever..)

      Ridah Booley - 2011-08-03 08:15

      Yes you are right, but thAt same leverage allows you to do what you want. So if both armed equally would they provoke each other? Right now, A Select few countries have this armaments. Why do they need it? Protection? what have they done to deserve protection? should other then also not have protection?

      You mean like the last hundred times the dish cloth heads have tried?

      pierreedge - 2011-08-02 17:40

      The "dish cloth"??? what can you retort to racists....

    Israel is at the forefront of the war against terorism .We can be thankful of their efforts to avert a nuclear disaster . The whole western way of life is under theat by the constant onslaught. Do you want to live under Sharia law? where father is pitted againt son and wife againt daughter. Barbaric punishment meted out at the whim of the religious leaders. Think very carefully before you criticise.

      battle4truth - 2011-08-02 17:14

      100% in agreement with your statement. Start supporting Israel's fight against her enemies, if they loose, you children will be forced to become muslims...even islam knows this.

      Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-02 17:22

      Isn't it amazing in all of this, that the people resisting this western foreign policy madness, are labelled as terrorists.A policy which is basically a massive money laundering exercise, recycling billions of taxpayers dollars via Israel and others, and then back to the US in arms sales and AIPAC which runs american politics.

      pierreedge - 2011-08-02 17:33

      funny, may think isreal is at the forefront, but at the forefront of terrorism. And this is a typical example of their terror tacticts, sending murderers to a foreign country to assassinate a scientist in front of his wife and child. Actually, between the 9 turkish on the flotilla killed, the 1500 civilian palestinian murdered about 2 years ago by isreal and the dozens here and there killed in Palestine by them every week, isreal is the nation with the most blood on their hands at the moment

      Ridah Booley - 2011-08-03 08:22

      *sighh... before commenting do some research, cause you makin urself look stupid. Terrorism? HAHAHAHHAHA the norway killing was thort to be a "terrorist" then it was one of their own, so the title TERRORIST is taken by arabs... so that does it make that guy? Anyhow... point being, this entire thing is about certain individuals wanting their way, when the masses only want peace and to live their lives. Much like SA

  • Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-02 17:16

    Israel has always known that once peace is concluded with the Palestinians the civil war between the religious and secular elements would start. They need the common enemy to exist.

      Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-02 17:56

      Zionists are experts at propaganda, disinformation, denying facts and outright lying.

  • j4truth - 2011-08-02 17:25

    SYRIA kills hundreds of innocent civilians - no noise ISRAEL eliminates potential mass terrorist - big noise

      Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-02 17:34

      Operation cast lead, white phosphorous, if this is not mass terrorism, I don't know what terrorism is.

      pierreedge - 2011-08-02 17:37

      You think that by inventing small little lies you can excuse this act of terrosim from your beloved country isreal??? Type syria in the search above, and you will find 10 PAGES at least of article just here in news 24 about what's going on in syria. But we know your country tactics, manipulate the truth and divert the attention. DOESNT WORK.

      Ridah Booley - 2011-08-03 08:18

      ermmm you forgot one thing.. they do the exact same. have you endured the border patrol? NO? then dont speak. They are doing something that makes them fear everyone... thus the need to arm to the teeth.

  • Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-02 17:57

    For over sixty years the Zionist-Apartheid Entity has been trying to entice Iran's ~50,000+ strong Jewish community to decamp to Israel, but the loyal-to-Iran descendants of ancient Persian Jewry will have no truck with the Zionists & have consistently refused all entreaties. Just another one of those uncomfortable facts-on-the-ground, that the Zionist Propaganda Machine would rather you did NOT know.

      Scrutineer - 2011-08-02 20:15

      Well, there are anti-Zionist Jews. It's nothing new.

    Mossad, Malema is the best nuclear scientist South Africa has ever produced. There you go, a million rand saved.

  • Adam - 2011-08-03 00:03

    i really would love to know how this kinte moron is allowed to keep his posts up. absolute bigotry filled with ignorance of hate speech. funny how smiler to malema he sounds....using lies to fuel his personal cause, labelling zionists( the real definition being some one who is committed to state of israel) as liars, murderers, black mailers and more..... this is pure malema tactics!!!! please news24 i honestly beg you to silence this idiot from spreading more hate speech!!!

      Kunta-Kinte - 2011-08-03 07:27

      Just a goyim stating his displeasure of zionism. Moderation is considered censorship in some countries. Who knows it feels it!!
