History from ancient Egypt to present time is filled with corrupt governments, with back room dealings, with "false flags" to create an instigation for war. Read the Nuremberg transcripts and you will see how easy it is to do, and how no one ever believes it until ten years after you've done the deed.
No government, not the Israelis, not the US, not England, not Pakhistan, not Japan, not even New Zealand is perfect. They all act in self-interest. Saying the Israelis are incapable of deceit is ridiculous. All people are capable of deceit and governments are filled to the brim, last I checked, with people!
Thanks for your balanced comments. I think there was a misreading. I do not exonerate Israel, Mossad, or any govertment and it's agencies from anything.
But one has to get real and differentiate what stories have any basis in fact and which are dot connecting speculation attempting to spread propaganda and disinformation.
If you scour Hindi source print media and websites you'll find reported claims Pakistan's ISI, Inter-Service Intelligence, who were actively involved in the prep work for 9/11, are planning to nuke India. These kind of unsubstantiated stories circulate everywhere.
When an on site investigator or journalist tracks a story, finds indications in the form of testimony, paperwork, leaks, etc we have something.
With the kind of reporting we are talking about here we are dealing with pure conjectures that are often malign in nature.
There are many things happening today that we should be justifiably be concerned with and tracking. In fact Pakistan's ISI, who control foreign policy, security and defence in Pakistan, and who are demonstrably aligning themselves with extremist Muslim militant groups, are a very big one.
But Western conspiracist will invariably select from the evergrowing library of horror stories that feed their particularl paranoias and circulate them. Mossad is a popular villain these days. See how many threads there are attributing something disastrous to them. Hardly any attributions to places that have a long track record of executing murderous attacks on Western targets like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, Libya, etc.
Do you know why?
