Re: Mrs. Clinton apparently shot at

Iranian "news source" claiming Ms. Clinton was shot at in Israel ?

That sounds reasonable.

Considering Iran has been:
1. Supporting terrorists trying to kill Israeli civilians
2. Blamed Israel/"Zioniats"/Jews for anything and everythnig from drug dealing to Greek economy meltdown
3. Has been developing nuclear weapons while calling for the destruction of Israel.

Any claims coming out Iran having anything to do with Israel should be taken with a lot more than pinch of salt.

At least 7 people were killed yesterday, probably by Iranian backed terrorists (and on the same day 18 years ago the Jewish center in Buenos Aires was bombed by Iranian agents)

I hope your post was ironic, if so, I don't want to be tricked and therefore

In the off chance that your post was for real, you're right, why would we be concerned about what happens to the Secretary of State of one of the "heaviest" countries in the world, politically and economically, who is in one of the hottest regions of the planet discussing about possible nuclear threats? Some of us actually pay attention to what goes on beyond the mountains surrounding our village! Aside from the fact that many of us have family and friends in several countries in the "hot area" and look with apprehension at any news coming from there.

Aside from this, I don't see at the moment this news reported anywhere else, maybe a bit later? This thread is correctly placed in off topic on the forum, so if you feel unconcerned, no need to read, move on.

have you considered using Google Chrome? It does a fantastic job of translating web pages in real time. I find it very helpful and even with this story, i was able to read it in full, just as provided to you later in the thread.

i know most people do not like to install more applications, but this one has been a must since moving here.

Alternatively, it's probably not too much to ask for a mod to respect the rules of the forum and post things in English.

I haven't seen this turn up anywhere else, though, so I suspect it's a non-story.

In terms of background, Iran also accuses Israel of being behind the recent, brazen assignations of several civilian scientists in Iran.
If Israel can conclusively prove Iranian involvement in the Bulgaria attacks, it will be the casus belli necessery for a military attack on Iranian nuclear installations. Not that I'm cynical about governments putting their citizens at risk by conducting clandenstine operations abroad

Quote:


On the morning of 11 January Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, the deputy head of Iran's uranium enrichment facility at Natanz, was in his car on his way to work when he was blown up by a magnetic bomb attached to his car door. He was 32 and married with a young son. He wasn't armed, or anywhere near a battlefield.

Mr. Roshan, may his colleagues soon die of radiation disease, was a senior member of an antisemitic nuclear weapons plan. He was A Villain , Not a civilian , (his wife said "Mostafa's ultimate goal was the annihilation of Israel." how very civilian of him, please post more pictures of him with kids, flowers & rainbows)

The Bulgarians & Israeli tourists murdered yesterday were civilians.

Not that I'm defending the Iranians, but it would very much surprise me if the Israelis didn't have nuclear weapons... and provided to them by the U.S. no less.

Re: Mrs. Clinton apparently shot at

What I can't seem to understand is... why news of this "event" hasn't seemed to appear anywhere else. I just googled "hillary clinton shot" and there is only one search result that mentions it.

So I guess either the media are trying to keep it on the D-low... or perhaps it never really happened?

My guess is that it never really happened.
