    Support for terrorist organization part of covert war to topple Iranian regime

    Wednesday, January 11, 2012

    The US-backed terrorist group Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK), in association with Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, was responsible for today’s car bomb attack in Tehran which killed Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, according to Israeli sources close to Jewish writer Richard Silverstein.

    The scientist, a specialist working at the country’s Natanz’s uranium enrichment facility, was killed after a magnetic bomb was attached to the side of his car by two men on a motorcycle.

    “My own confidential Israeli source confirms today’s murder was the work of the Mossad and MEK, as have been a number of previous operations I’ve reported here,” reports Silverstein.

    Silverstein’s blog, Tikum Olam, cannot be dismissed as Iranian state media. According to the Daily Telegraph, the blog “has a record of revealing information censored inside Israel” and has been praised as being “important” by Yossi Melman, a veteran security and intelligence reporter for Haaretz.

    Silverstein adds that the method of assassination mirrors similar murders carried out by MEK and Mossad in the past. He also cites a Le Figaro piece which documents how, “Iranian assets are being prepared for conducting operations inside [Iran] as part of Israel’s undercover intelligence war against Iran’s nuclear energy program.”

    “Assassinations like the one today accomplish nothing,” writes Silverstein. “It doesn’t fundamentally harm Iran’s nuclear program. It doesn’t deter Iran or its scientists from pursuing the research and whatever scientific goals they may have. These are shameful acts by a shameful Israeli government exploiting Iranian terrorists for their own ends. I find it disgusting that Israel can get away with such acts with impunity.”

    “I am not a supporter of Iran’s nuclear program. But I am even less a supporter of assassination as state policy, and that includes my own nation, whose president seems especially enamored of targeted killings, even of U.S. citizens,” he adds.
