Without even waiting for official confirmation, the Zionists were quick to make accusations against Islamic Iran for the Bulgarian but attack. Was it another Israeli false flag operations?
Within two hours of the attack on a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of carrying it out. A top Bulgarian official, according to the Israeli daily, Haaretz, warned it would be a “mistake” to blame a specific country or organization for the attack.
In the July 18 attack, five Israeli tourists, the Bulgarian bus driver and the unknown suicide bomber died. Video footage released by the Bulgarians shows a white person dressed in shorts and carrying a huge backpack was responsible.
Netanyahu said the attack coincided with the one against the Jewish community centre in Argentina 18 years ago. The Argentine attack has been blamed on Hizbullah, Iran, as well as rightwing military officers. Take your pick: blame your favourite enemy!
How could Netanyahu make such an allegation without providing any evidence and what benefit would Iran get from attacking Israeli tourists? Could it be a case of diverting attention from Israel’s own criminal record of assassinating Iranian scientists? Israel itself may have done it in order to have a pretext to attack Iran that it has been pressing the US to do? After all, in June 1982, Israeli agents shot and killed Israel’s ambassador to London as a pretext to launch the war on Lebanon.
Iran does not need to kill Israeli tourists to settle score with the Zionist criminals. Unlike Israel, Iran is not a terrorist state.
