TIME: Mossad Trained, Paid Assassins in Iran
Arutz Sheva ^ | 14/1/12 | Chana Yaar

Posted on 01/14/2012 2:39:22 PM PST by Eleutheria5

TIME Magazine cited "sources" Saturday who said Israel's Mossad agency was responsible for paying and training assassins to kill Iranian scientists in the past two years.

The U.S.-based magazine also quoted unnamed Western intelligence sources as saying Israel was also responsible for the explosion at an Iranian military base outside Tehran last year.

Last week another Iranian nuclear scientist was killed in a car bombing in broad daylight, the third to be assassinated in two years, just a few days after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that activation was to begin deep underground at the Fordow uranium enrichment facility near Qom.

Professor Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was known publicly as an oil industry expert at Sharif University of Technology -- but it turned out he was also a nuclear scientist, heavily involved in Iran's nuclear development activities.

The U.S. State Department immediately denied responsibility for the murder in a statement to the media. In addition, President Barack Obama also picked up the phone and called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to demand an explanation after hearing about the hit.

Perhaps as a result of all the brouhaha, Israel's President Shimon Peres on Friday officially denied responsibility for the assassination, breaking the nation's standard policy of not commenting on intelligence matters. Peres told CNN's Spanish-language channel, "I am well aware that it is 'fashionable' to blame Israel and the U.S. whenever something negative happens there."

Bibi to Shimon: We didn't do it. Honest.

Shimon: What didn't we do again?

Bibi: Something negative.

Shimon: OK. If you say so. I'll go make a statement.

Bibi: Chuckle.

Shimon: What was that?

Bibi: What was what?

Shimon: Oh, never mind.

This was the Obama administration leaking classified information to Time as a warning to Israel not to attack Iran without our permission, which, as long as Obama is president, will never be granted.

Bibi...you have friends in the U.S., but they don't work in the executive branch. They are the ones currently undermining your efforts to survive.

TIME is like the New York Times. The only secrets they can keep are the ones that protect Barak Obama.

Mossad operates on a level of invisibility that ghosts would envy.

I’m pretty sure a bumbling news magazine like Time would have a hard time getting access to anything legit on Mossad.

I thought Mossad was competant and know what they are doing.

And TIME needs to realize that the idea of a strong Iran,one armed with nuclear weapons should never be realized under the current regime.

So many people on the left so Iranian’s culture as a benchmark for socialism across the world,hard to let go after their social experiment got overrun by the Islamist.

Whoever is taking of business,is doing it in a professional manner that will probably save the lives of thousands.

Time is totally irresponsible. This is too inflammatory to publish without sources on the record. May Time go bankrupt and pass out of existence for this screed.

That’s racism. You think that only white people get to have nuclear arms races, but those funny brown people with their death cult religion bent on world domination, oh, nooo. They can’t have a nuclear arms race. They might hurt somebody. That’s racism and imperialism. Submit to the will of Alaah.

Haven’t they already done that once in our lifetime? Why did they come back from making bound serials in partnership with Life?

Yes, I have heard that several members of Ahmadinejad’s most trusted inner circle are spies and assassins.

And what makes BO think he has a right to demand anything from Netanyahu or Israel?

The fact that he’ll level an outpost on command, in order to forward a “piece process” that is guaranteed to make pieces. There, there, Bibi. Have a doggie treat for wrecking Mitzpeh Avihai.
