More on the BBC as well, could this be the start of a false flag operation inside Iran to stir up trouble from within like they have done in the past?

Maybe the Arab sunni minority is hitting back at the Persian shias. A reverse mirror image of what's happening in Iraq?

How long until Iran blames the US for this? Followed by a counter attack. Then we will have no other choice but to go to war with them.

Interesting enough, I was flipping through the channels and stopped on Fox News. Anyways, they had a preview for something coming on later that said "Gen. Petraeus warned against Iran, so why is GE doing business with a country that is killing Americans".

Or instead of some made up false flag op, this could actually be the work of oh I don't know the MEK who have a long history of just these types of attacks.

But hey lets not look at a likely cause when it is easier and more convienant to just try and blame the US.

Out of curiosity, when was the last time that the MEK blew up a mosque in Iran?

Umm if mosques are being blown up in IRAN, doesn't this kinda go against the whole Iran is the bad guy deal I mean by U.S, 9/11 logic why would the Iranian Government attack its own people...

This kinda segregates Iran from the whole "they are funding the terrorists" deal if you really think about it, now Iran can play the victim card.

Not sure, but really what does that have to do with anything? MEK are terrorists who have a history of attacking Iran correct?

I haven't seen anything to think that they couldn't have been behind this.

Deadly bomb attacks are unusual in Iran. The last major bombing was by suspected Sunni rebels in the south-eastern city of Zahedan in February last year.


BBC

At first, I thought Kurds, because an Independent Kurdistan would include parts of Iran. Plus, Iran has attacked Kurdish positions in Iraq.

But, however, Sunni rebels are going to blamed again.

This may very well be a false flag event, just not the one most are thinking of.

What if Iran wants a publicly accepted reason to attack (Israel) or have their lapdogs (Hamas/Hezbollia), do their dirty work.


Of course the US and Israel are blamed before anyone has any facts.

It is news that the US sent Al-CIADA in Iraq a year ago, bombing things and killing people to push Iran to do something stupid. Well it seems it's their work.

According to CNN (see link above), there are conflicting reports of whether there was a bomb involved. Sometimes explosions happen by accident. There may have been a large amount of combustible material stored in the area, there could have been a natural gas leak, or some other non-terror related cause for the explosion.

I have a friend from Iran who told me that on Persian New year he would make his own explosives using combustible materials. Persian New Year was less than one month ago. It can be possible that somebody left left over fireworks or materials to make fireworks near the moss, and the materials accidentally exploded.

The Baluchis who are Sunni are notorious for doing this sort of thing. They are said to be funded by the CIA and further it is said that the Baluchis have been promised by the CIA/USA that they will have their own nation i.e., BALUCHISTAN ...
