I just wanted to say that just because an attack occurs (if it does) doesn't mean the Israelis engineered it -- or for that matter that they didn't.
It's pretty accepted theory in intelligence circles that Iran has used terrorism to seek revenge for the assassination of scientists in their
nuclear program. Iran has all but admitted it. As far as I know, they still haven't denied responsibility for the Bulgarian bus bombing.
So Iran doing some kind terrorist attack that targeted primarily jews is entirely plausible.
I realize it's also entirely plausible that Israel could launch a false flag attack as a justification for war with Iran. There is no question
that Israel is concerned about Iran getting the bomb. Maybe overly paranoid, but maybe not. The leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the late
Ayatollah Khomeini, routinely called for Israel's destruction and was deeply disturbed by Israel's existence, calling it a blight on the holy land.
He implored his people to some day, when they could, destroy Israel. Any of you who are a bit older and have good memories know Israel enjoyed
relatively good relations with Iran under the Shah. That changed instantly when Khomeini took power. "Iran cut off all official relations; official
statements, state institutes, events and sanctioned initiatives adopted a sharp anti-Zionist stance." (wikipedia) That has been a central factor in
the culture of Iran's government ever since.
That's the problem. If something happens, we might not know for decades what really happened. Of course, conspiracy theorists, on both
sides, won't even need a minute. They'll be absolutely certain they're correct and that this is because they're smart and "really see the way
things are." No amount of information will ever change that for the rest of their lives.
