Skip to comments.ALERT:Tehran ‘bounty’ for attack on Israel (IRAN OFFERING $$ FOR ATTACK ON ISRAEL)
Posted on 10/29/2005 5:04:39 PM PDT by markedmannerf
RAN has promised a reward of $10,000 (£5,600) to Islamic Jihad if the militant group launches rockets from the West Bank towards Tel Aviv, a senior Palestinian intelligence official said last week.
Speaking in his Ramallah office, the official produced a fat wad of $100 notes which he said had been confiscated from a pro-Iranian Islamic Jihad activist.
The money was said to have gone from Iran to Damascus, the Syrian capital, from where Ibrahim Shehadeh, Islamic Jihads head of overseas operations, transferred it to the West Bank.
According to the intelligence official, the Palestinian Authority has located workshops where Al-Quds (Jerusalem) rockets are being made and has given their co-ordinates to the Israelis. We understand they destroyed some of them, he said.

It is long past smackdown time for Iran.

When the Palestinians declare these acts to be acts of terrorism, and the penalty to be execution, I'll begin to believe they're on the level.
The sad thing about Iran, is that there are many who would love to see the U.S. free them from their current leadership. How do you remove the Ayatoilets without killing some of the good guys?
I don't think it would be as easy as Iraq, and even the Russians seem stupid enough to cause problems if we tried something.
Iran has been off their meds since their new "leader" took over. Do they really think they won't get their a$$ handed to them on a platter courtesy of Israel? Israel is just looking for an excuse to clean up the whole region.
Explain to me why Iran is doing this.....it's almost like they want a fight...and BTW that worries me.
Maybe the UN should give them a stern warning.
That always seems to work.
Do you think Russia would be that stupid?
Time to kick their A$$!
Maybe they have a bomb they'd like to try out.
"the Palestinian Authority has located workshops where Al-Quds (Jerusalem) rockets are being made and has given their co-ordinates to the Israelis"
can anyone substantiate this?
America! F***, yeah!
So really, how long do you think it would take for Israel to bring Iran to her knees? A day, two days, a week?
One of the best things about Saddam being out of power is he isn't paying off suicide bombers families anymore. Now the president of Iran does this. I don't like this one bit. Every nation that doesn't condemn these payments should be ashamed of itself. This to me this is a act of war. It is so sad that so many nations would condemn Israel if they took action against Iran. And yet not say anything about Iran paying for attacks on Israel.
Sickening, just sickening.
"One of the best things about Saddam being out of power is he isn't paying off suicide bombers families anymore. Now the president of Iran does this."
And it's our soldiers and Iraqis that are getting killed.
The Royal Australian Navy has done no such thing! :)
Seriously though, anybody with half a brain wouldn't be surprised at this. Why we permit scum like this to live has me completely buggered.
A 9.0 over there would do wonders to clean things up a bit...and they won't need any of our relief help since they got lots of money to throw around.
That's just his protection payment.
Do you think Israel wouldn't help us if we ask?
can anyone substantiate this?
Remember with whom we are dealing. Bloodthirsty rival factions will give each other up, sometimes by telling the truth and sometimes by lying. Someone else does their dirty work and they are free to shed crocodile tears. No doubt it happens with the MNF in Iraq, too.
Crafty intelligence services have to sort this stuff out. And politicians have to decide whether to refrain and pressure the PA itself to act, or to act on their own in order to protect lives.
I have no doubt Israel has been helping us since 911. My only point is that is that now it's us & the Iraqis plagued by the suicide bombers sent by Syria and funded by Iran.
They want to be attacked.
That way the usal traitors in this country will never stop whning that the war is "unjust"
What cheapskates. That won't even pay for one of the BMWs the Israelis will heli-zap in retaliation, let alone the funerals of the rats inside.
Great to know that some have unwavering confidence in the PA. Since they have never been complicit in killing Americans and all. We just need to send Condi back in to convince the PA, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad that it is OK to kill Americans; as long as the lip service keeps up. Me, I am for cutting off ALL aid to any group associated with the killing of Americans; especially American diplomats. But that is just unenlightened me; what with calling for the eradication of all factions that harm the interests of America.
You mean like Sec. Rice and Pres. Bush?
To stop giving the PA endless chances to control itself and its allies is to admit that the policy of hoping animals will tame themselves has failed. No one in the US government is going to admit a mistake or failure about this.
Iran has one...count 'em...one ally in the Middle East: Syria.
And Syria appears to be folding. Syria has started turning in terrorists to the U.S. and Syria has pulled its Army out of Lebanon.
So Iran is pretty freaked out right now that they are about to lose their only ally...that Syria is getting smart enough lay low for the next few years (at least until President Bush is out of office).
So Iran wants either the coming conflict with the U.S. to happen now while they still have an ally in Syria, or to bluff the U.S. into backing off.
This means that Iran is stuck emulating North Korea's "crazy aunt in the attic" strategy, in spades.
Of course, the U.S. is playing the game the otherway. We want to get Syria out of their alliance with Iran before we do what needs to be done there (probably a blockade of Iran in the end...combined with arming the Iranian students).
Someing must be done about Iran anfd something must be done as soon as possible. Before it is too late.
Did we use a nuclear attack against Iraq? I assume they would first take out Iran's long range capabilities along with their eyes and ears and then concentrate on infrastructure.
Looks like a terrorist state.
Smells like a terrorist state.
Feels like a terrorist state.
Taste like a terrorist state.
No wait, terrorist states, don't come from the Religion of Peace. - SARC
How you like me now HANS!!!
Coming to save the m
"The US House, Senate, and all appointed toadies have failed us. I propose cutting the foreign aid budget to zero. Then negotiate from a position of strength. The Soviet Union does not exist. Russia, China and India would return to negotiations in a rapid fashion. France would be no great loss, same with Spain. The British would freak, the Dutch and Germans could blame America as their economies crumbled. Occasionally bad tasting medicine must be administered. Unfortunately our once great republic does not have the stomach for what is needed. The wound has become septic and there is not a physician willing to treat it, let alone a surgeon to perform the necessary amputation. All of this while the patient succumbs to artificial life support. If it were only a single person as opposed to our great republic."
Our country lacks the will to win in Iraq, Iran knows this and is testing us. For the last 27 years we've let them get away with anything they do. Most of our country is soft and they can smell it.
