People’s Mujahedin of Iran were trained and armed by Israel’s secret service, inside Israel, to carry out the attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists. Talk about 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend'. The People's Mujahedine of Iran deny any involvement and Israel has no comment. Just who are the People's Mujahedin of Iran? Sounds like such a nice group, but according to U.S. officials talking to NBC news:
The group, the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, has long been designated as a terrorist group by the United States, accused of killing American servicemen and contractors in the 1970s and supporting the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran before breaking with the Iranian mullahs in 1980.
The attacks, which have killed five Iranian nuclear scientists since 2007 and may have destroyed a missile research and development site, have been carried out in dramatic fashion, with motorcycle-borne assailants often attaching small magnetic bombs to the exterior of the victims’ cars.
U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Obama administration is aware of the assassination campaign but has no direct involvement.
The MEK and its sister organizations have since the beginning been run by Massoud and Maryam Rajavi, a husband-wife team who have maintained tight control despite assassination threats and internal dissent. Massoud Rajavi, 63, founded the MEK, but since the U.S. invasion of Iraq has taken a backseat to his wife.
Go read the full article, lots of information. Is this true? MSNBC has two confirming sources within the US government... But who really knows at this point.
One thing is for sure, if this is true, Israel is doing everything, thinking outside the box, in an effort to push Iran's nuclear capabilities backward. Good for them.
Iranian official lays out attack plan to destroy Israel in nine minutes
An Iranian official closely tied to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has released a detailed plan to attack Israel, according to a Middle East media monitoring site.
Alireza Forghani, an Iranian politician and staunch ally of the regime, recently released an article titled, “Iran Must Attack Israel by 2014,” according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.
The article comes amid an ongoing media debate about whether the Iranian regime’s rhetoric against Israel is as homicidal as some claim. Forghani’s article offers definitive proof that Iran is determined to annihilate the Jewish state.
While some in the American media would downplay the regime’s murderous language, observers on Capitol Hill are viewing Iran with growing alarm.
It’s now quite clear that Obama is playing chicken with Israel on Iranian nukes. That is why Leon Panetta came out with a statement this week accusing Israel of planning to attack Iran. If that statement is true, it’s the worst kind of sabotage, undermining the advantages of surprise. If it’s false, it is intended to place Israel at the focus of Iranian rage. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
The goal of Obama’s nuclear brinkmanship is to drive Israel into making dangerous territorial compromises. This is a Carteresque policy: blame the victim, and arm her enemy. Jimmy Carter enabled Iranian radicalization starting with Ayatollah Khomeini, heedless of the disastrous and possibly genocidal consequences. Carter recently said that an Iranian nuclear weapon was no big deal, as if a nuke in the hands of a suicide-preaching Khomeinist ideology machine is just fine with him. Well, the Saudis know their Iranian enemies a great deal better than Jimmy Carter does, and they are sending their money to Switzerland.
It is getting very interresting folks.
