While Israel has not officially claimed responsibility for killing top Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, anonymous Israeli officials speaking to the press are eager to take credit.
An anonymous Israeli official speaking to The New York Times said the world should thank Israel for assassinating top Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
The Times described its source as “a senior Israeli official involved for years in tracking Mr. Fakhrizadeh for Israel.” The official said Israel “would continue to act against the Iranian nuclear program as necessary.”
Fakhrizadeh’s killing came at a time of heightened tensions in the region between the US and Iran. Earlier this month, a report said President Trump reviewed options to attack an Iranian nuclear site but was talked out of pulling the trigger by his senior advisors.
The report said President Trump left other options open to hit Iran’s nuclear program, which raises questions about Washington’s foreknowledge of Fakhrizadeh’s assassination.
Both the Trump administration and Israel are keen to sabotage a future Biden administration’s efforts to rejoin the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The Trump administration is planning to slap new sanctions on Iran every week until Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20th.
For their part, the Iranians are exercising caution and say they will not fall into a trap that would scuttle future negotiations with the US.

I’ll be grateful when Israeli illegal nuke chiefs start getting knocked off. Israeli nukes threaten the world. I’m glad the Netanyahu/Trump regime is nearly over.
Waiting for sanctions for NOT attacking in retaliation for assassinated nuclear scientist and spoiling the neocon wet dream.
Nobody’s motives are ever pure but Iran seems to be far more inline with the teachings of Christ then the US administration or the anti- Christian Netanyahu. You know, thou shalt not commit murder and turn the other cheek, love your neighbors even your enemies, etc etc etc.
Yes, short of divine intervention there seems no way to stop these devils. So clearly alien to any sense of rectitude, they don’t deserve to be called human. And humanity would rather thank God for getting rid of them.
We should hold our breath as the most recent lame smuck hobbles out the door, off to save maybe David Pecker’s posts. Hoping the world as we know it doesn’t end between now and noon on Janurary 20th
Hoping the Biden crew turns out to be better than the last one, but not expecting it. Both horses owned by the same group neoguys.
