Israel’s assassins

January 19, 2012

This article in The Australian claims to provide some of the facts and context surrounding Israel’s latest act of terrorism inside Iran. It reads in part like a crime novel, a murder mystery–except that there is almost no mystery. The act was carried out in broad daylight and everyone seems to know who committed the crime, or at least who is behind it. The authors of this article even seem to know to know precisely who gave the go-ahead orders. The most amazing thing about the story though is how insignificant it has been outside of Iran. The event was noted, reported, and within a day or two dropped from the news cycle. Nothing more than that. To appreciate just how significant that is, try to imagine what the consequences would have been had Iranian agents assassinated an Israeli scientist in Jerusalem.
