US, Israel Invoke Terror To Ratchet Up War Threats Against Iran

Both Washington and Israel have seized upon a string of abortive bomb plots in India, Georgia and Thailand to escalate war threats against Iran.
In India, an unknown individual on a motorcycle attached a bomb to a car in which the wife of an Israeli diplomat was riding in Delhi on February 13. The woman and the car’s driver were lightly injured. On the same day in Tbilisi, Georgia, a bomb was discovered attached to an Israeli embassy vehicle and defused.
And in Bangkok, Thailand, three individuals identified as Iranians were arrested after a bizarre incident Tuesday in which explosives detonated inside their apartment and one of them blew off his own legs with a homemade grenade.
The three incidents, in which there were no fatalities, were immediately labeled by the Israeli government as terrorist attacks organized by Tehran that, in the words of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, demonstrated why all nations must draw “red lines against Iranian aggression.”
“Iran’s terror operations are now exposed for all to see,” Netanyahu said during a Knesset [Israeli parliament] plenum on Wednesday. “Iran is undermining the world’s stability and harms innocent diplomats.”
What was striking about the first two incidents in Delhi and Tbilisi was that they involved the use of devices—bombs attached by magnets to cars—similar to those used to assassinate at least four Iranian nuclear scientists over the past two years.
The reported aim of these attacks has been to sabotage Iran’s supposed quest for a nuclear weapon, although Tehran has denied such aims and neither the International Atomic Energy Agency nor anyone else has provided evidence that Iran is seeking nuclear arms. For its part, Israel is believed to possess some 400 nuclear weapons.
As US intelligence officials and Israeli sources have confirmed, those terrorist attacks—the latest of which claimed the life of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a scientist employed at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility, on January 11—were organized by the Israeli spy agency, Mossad, in collaboration with operatives of the MeK, or People’s Mujahedin, a group classified by Washington as an international terrorist organization.
An unknown attacker has shot dead Iran's deputy industry minister.
Safdar Rahmatabadi was driving in Tehran's Sabalan Square late on Sunday when he was shot once in the head and once in the chest, the state news agency IRNA reported.
A police officer told the agency that the attacker appeared to have been inside Mr Rahmatabadi's vehicle and spoke to him before opening fire.
There was no speculation as to why the deputy minister was targeted.
Police said they had begun an investigation. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

You've stolen that right from Oralloy, Izzy.
Something more to add to your resume.
Let us hope that Israel doesn't do something stupid in an attempt to break up the talks cause the U S of A doesn't have the balls to tell them if they do we'll drop them as "allies".
Israel makes enemies and they become America's enemies. One of the three reasons Al-Qaeda attacked us on 9/11 was because of Israel. That tiny Zionist nation has made the US a target.
You can talk, nobody runs away from the truth like you.
Israel is more of a albatross than a friend.
the Zionist nation certainly need the US to survive
exploiting the Palestinians by stealing their land.
Israel has never heeded the calls of the UN to vacate the occupied territories of the West Bank.

People who lament the same narrative ad infinitum tend to be suffering from a personality disorder. This disorder is described as a mental illness labeled Repetition Compulsion. From all the posts I've read by the obviously enraged JTT he has exhibited these symptoms. JTT is who he is, an angry poster stuck in a psychological trench; he cannot go forward or backwards.....he is just stuck in his own reality.
US Secretary of State John Kerry has told the BBC that none of the differences between world powers and Iran over its nuclear programme are big enough to prevent agreement.
He said they came "extremely close" to a deal at the weekend in Geneva.
But he said the rest of the world had to be certain that Iran was not pursuing a nuclear weapons programme.
Three days of negotiations ended without a breakthrough, but diplomats will meet again on 20 November.
"We were very, very close actually, extremely close," Mr Kerry said.
Speaking to the BBC's State Department correspondent Kim Ghattas, Mr Kerry reaffirmed that it would "take time to work through differences" between the US and Iran.
"We haven't been speaking for 35 years," he said. "We just talked more in 30 hours than we have in those prior 30 years."
