Double Terror Attack

Dear Friends,

Chuck said you would receive an update on yesterday's double terrorist attack against Israeli embassies.

As mentioned on the Harvest Show, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has said Iran is responsible. For it's part Tehran says they have nothing to do with it.

Israeli interests are on highest alert around the world.

In Thailand three bombs went off in what is being described at this hour as a botched terror attempt.

There is a suspected Iranian national who has had his legs blown off in the occurrence.

One bomb went of in a house, another was thrown at a taxi that didn't stop for the man, and the third went off prematurely wounding five.

Israel is making the link that Iran is behind this event, but another theory says that his target was the Thai police.

There is no clear evidence pointing to Israeli interests as the target, but some offer the idea that this was part of a coordinated effort.

Back in India an intelligence source is reported to have said that the blast's tracks there lead to Iran.

From New Delhi where the investigation is underway, pieces of the puzzle are coming together that may display that Iran is cooperating with local terrorist infrastructures – perhaps the same group that perpetrated Mumbai attack a few years ago.

The Indian Interior Minister has said that the “attack was perpetrated by well trained terrorists.”

The assessment is that the incidents in India and Georgia are part of a wider, multi-continental and multi-dimensional effort, intended to give to Hezbollah and/or to Iran a triple achievement: Revenge for the elimination of Imad Mughniyeh, the Hezbollah weapons buyer assassinated four years ago, revenge for the elimination of the Iranian nuclear scientists, and deterrence.

The concern here in Israel is that this is only the beginning.
