Iranian bomb in Bulgaria: Cui Bono?

By Cyrus Safdari | Iran Affairs | July 19, 2012

So a bomb exploded on a bus in Bulgaria killing a certain number of people who were apparently visitors from Israel. About 20 minutes later, Israeli PM Netanyahu is accusing Iran of carrying out the bombing. Speculation is rife. Pundits feel a need to opine, even though they didn’t know any facts about the incident either. A few more hours pass, and Trita Parsi writes that it is plausible that Iran was indeed behind the bombing, as a sort of retaliation against Israel for the murders of Iranian nuclear scientists. I guess “plausible” is all that things need be in order to implicate Iran.)

Trita does make an interesting point though:

US officials have privately expressed concern that one of the purposes of Israeli attacks in Iran has been to generate an Iranian response that could serve as a casus belli for Israel. That way, Israel could target Iran’s nuclear facilities without paying the heavy political cost of starting a preventive war.

This of course is the “provocation-followed-by-retaliation” technique that Moshe Dayan told Moshe Sharret would be used by Israel to justify its aggression, years ago.

I pointed out to Trita that Israel and the US are both reported to be behind the Jundollah terrorists, who have murdered a number of Iranians in terrorist attacks launched from Pakistan. So if we proceed on the “retaliation” theory, Iran certainly has lots to retaliate for.

However, I don’t buy the retaliation theory either. What would Iran have to gain from hitting back like this? What would “retaliation” get Iran? The cost to Iran of being actually implicated in such an event would far outweigh any benefit of retaliation (and I can’t think of any tangible benefit from retaliation either.) And why assume that when Israelis are blown up, only Iran can be the guilty party? Its not as if Israel has a dearth of opponents.

So what benefit would accrue to Iran by blowing up some random busload of people somewhere?

  2. Really? That’s easy! They have been attacked for years by the Israelis and the US. Eye for an Eye. The fact is they have been trying to attack Israelis for a long time but they are thwarted by the CIA and the Mossad. The mossad has a lot of intelligence that they steal from the CIA. So the Israelis are always one step ahead on the chessboard.

    • “Eye for an eye.”

      That’s Jewish.

      Reggie, you state: “the fact is” and then fail to cite any fact that can be corroborated.

  3. I suggest it was a false flag attack, another in a string of false flag attacks, by Israel, in order to implicate Iran.. Iran has, according to a report on Press TV, condemned ALL terrorist attacks..

  8. Imho it is another neo-zio false flag, exactly same strategic tactic that Hitler used against Poland.

  9. There was no bomb, just incendiary device/s, set off on an empty bus. There were no casualties either local or Israeli.

    They said there were body parts strewn about. For that to happen the force of the blast has to be huge, and all on the bus would have been killed from the concussion.

    There would not have been any wounded, but they showed allegedly wounded.

    What they do show is a fiercely burning bus. Had there been people in it at the time of the setting off of the incendiary device/s, none would have got out, and any getting out would have shown evidence of severe burns. There was no such evidence in the initial pictures. Since then there has been opportunity to photoshop.

    We now see on tv the Israeli flag draped coffins being brought back to Israel.

    This is staged, the coffins do not have bodies in them.

  10. Israel has many enemies all over the world. It is the most hated entity for all its wrong doing specially the killing, dispossesion and eviction of the Palestinians from their home land and for all the killings and misery they have brought to many Islamic Nations.

  11. Bravo ruby22-kate. If the sleeping people of the “West” had the audacy that you have, things would be different and we wouldn’t be the slaves of the Jews.
