On July 18, 2012, attack on an Israeli tourist bus in
took the lives of 5 Israeli nationals, a Bulgarian, and the mysterious suicide bomber. It is reported that the suspect, a young Caucasian, had a fake Bulgaria driver’s license. According to Israeli Haaretz, a top Bulgarian official warned that it would be a “mistake” to blame a specific country or organization for the attack. However, Michigan ’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had other ideas. Israel
Quick to point the finger at
, Mr. Netanyahu called it an “Iranian terror network spreading throughout the world”. He added: "Exactly 18 years after the attack on a Jewish community center in Iran , the Iranian terror continues to hurt innocent people." Apparently, it takes a village and some to set Argentina up. Iran
These serious allegations with a potential for disaster, demand scrutiny on several levels. The most fundamental question which needs to be addressed is who benefits from these attacks. One must question the location – location, location, location. And finally, analyze the empirical data.
In spite of
Israel and its Washington lobbies pushing for a war against Iran, of late, prominent voices have adopted a less bellicose stance towards and its nuclear program. The possibility of any military action against Iran which would undoubtedly lead to a closure of the world’s most important oil chokepoint, the Strait of Hormuz, has prompted politicians around the globe to opt for a diplomatic solution to end the impasse with Iran. Iran
is investing its efforts in diplomacy. While continuing to work towards a mutually acceptable solution with the P5+1, Iran Iran is making extensive preparations for the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit it will be hosting in in August. Over the past three centuries, Tehran Iran has never initiated a war and it would seem unlikely that at this juncture would resort to terrorism and solicit condemnation and possibly war. On the other hand, the targeting and killing of Israeli citizens by Tehran Iran would serve to support and justify Netanyahu’s call for military action against . Iran
For Netanyahu, domestic dissatisfaction aside,
’s policy of settlement expansion, a policy which government appointed jurists called legal, has brought international condemnation. With the moderate Kadima party pulling out of government, leaving Netanyahu in charge of hard-line coalition opposed to Middle East peace, Israel needs support from its allies more than ever. Undoubtedly, Israel would have greater support as a victim instead of an aggressor. Israel

In addition to the
Bulgaria attack, Mr. Netanyahu has blamed Iran for attacks in other countries, including the apparent foiled attack in Cyprus and the accusations leveled against Iran for plotting an attack in Kenya.
Given the nature of
’s relations with these countries, one cannot definitively conclude why these countries were picked by the perpetrators of these crimes. Perhaps these Israeli allies are not safe for Israelis, or they are safe for false-flag operations. Israel
Mr. Netanyahu made a clear reference to 1994 saying: “Exactly 18 years after the attack on a Jewish community center in
, the Iranian terror continues to hurt innocent people." The 1994 bombing in Argentina Argentina was blamed squarely on without any evidence while all other voices were silenced. Prominent voices such as Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles who suggested that [Argentine] government and military figures may have sought to embarrass the Menem government because of its decision to release the files” being investigated in the AMIA building at the time. An important project being carried out at the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association building was a review of previously secret government files that reportedly reveal how Nazis entered Iran following World War II helped by Argentine officials. The review of the files had gone on for two years, but had not been completed at the time of the bombing. “Speculation centered on the possibility that former Argentine government and military officials, fearful of exposure, were responsible for the bomb attack.”[i] Argentina
This is but one of the many instances where allegations againstMany reports as well as a detailed account (“Operation Cyanide”) reveals the Israeli plan to kill everyone on board the USS Liberty in 1967 and put the blame on
have been made without any proof. However, there have been many instances where Israeli false flag operations have come to light. Iran
In January 2012, it came to light that Israeli Mossad officers recruited operatives belonging to the terrorist group Jundallah by passing themselves off as American agents. According to two
U.S. intelligence officials, while toting U.S. passports and posing as CIA officers, they recruited Jundallah operatives. One month later, in February, NBC reported that according to US officials, armed and trained the terrorist MEK. Israel
While there is plenty of empirical data to support that Israelis are not shy about false flag operations, one would be hard pressed to accept that
would carry out a false flag operation and kill its own. Not so. Israel
The 1976 Operation Entebbe was a great tribute to Israeli courage and praise of Israeli commandos of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) who rescued Israeli citizens at
Entebbe airport in . But newly released British government documents reveal that the 1976 rescue of hostages, kidnapped on an Air France flight and held in Uganda Entebbe was a false flag operation – the file claims that Israel itself was behind the hijacking.
This “rescue operation” which became known as “operation Jonathan” in honor of the unit’s leader – Yonatan Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister’s brother. Yonatan was killed in the false flag operation – as were four other Israelis.
When it comes to
’s political agenda, no sacrifice is too great. A move against Israel will reverberate throughout the world. It is important for political leaders around the globe to understand that it may take a village to implement a political agenda, but it is up to them to make sure that the agenda does not destroy the global village.
