Defense Minister Mofaz: 'Iran Funded & Damascus Orchestrated Palestinian Suicide Bombing in Tel Aviv'

Ayatollahs In Tehran Fund Tel Aviv Bombing While Bin Laden Threatens U.S.

Assad - Ahmadinejad

Is there a connection between the Iranian-Syrian backing for the latest Palestinian suicide bombing in Tel Aviv and Osama bin Laden's new threat to attack the U.S? There may not be at present, but if Iran is allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, it may be just a matter of time before terror organizations such as Al Qaeda and Islamic Jihad also go nuclear.

Join the dots between Tehran, Damascus, Tel Aviv and Osama Bin Laden. January 19th opened a window to a future nuclear specter if Iran is permitted to acquire nuclear weapons.

In Israel, TV stations were covering the Palestinian suicide bombing in downtown Tel Aviv. At that moment, American TV networks were carrying news flashes about Osama bin Laden's threat to unleash fresh terror atrocities in the U.S. In Damascus, Syria and Iran two states that sponsor terrorism were comparing notes.

Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz declared: 'There is conclusive evidence that Iran funded and the Islamic Jihad headquarters in Damascus ordered its activists to carry out the suicide bombing'. Israel has backed up its charge by conveying confidential intelligence data to the attack to the U.S., the European Union, Egypt and Jordan.Adding insult to injury, Iran's ranting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was being wined and dined by Syria's leader Bashar Assad in Damascus. It was a 'terror summit' in the words of Mofaz. Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert decided on a low-key response. Israeli security forces would step up counter-terror operations against the Islamic Jihad, mainly in the Nablus area from where twenty-two year old Sami Antar was dispatched with his belt of explosives. He alone was killed when he blew up his bomb inside the crowded shawarma restaurant. Although thirty-one Israelis were injured, no one died because part of the explosives failed to detonate.

While all this was happening, Osama bin Laden warned he was about to unleash a new wave of attacks in the U.S. The Al Jazeera satellite channel screened an audiotape of the Al Qaeda leader warning America: 'The operations are being prepared and you will see them in your houses as soon as they are complete'. Washington rejected bin Laden's offer of a truce as no more than a ploy. The message is apparently getting through. French President Jacques Chirac has now hinted at nuclear retaliation against any state-backed terrorism. While visiting a nuclear submarine base in Brittany, Chirac warned: 'The leaders of states who would use terrorism against France as well as those who would consider using, in one way or another, weapons of mass destruction, must understand that they would lay themselves open to a firm response on our part'. CHIRAC WENT ON TO SAY: 'THIS RESPONSE COULD BE CONVENTIONAL OR ALSO OF A DIFFERENT KIND'.Question: Does the Chirac statement not sound similar to the preemptive policy of U.S. President George W. Bush?

January 19th should sound an alarm bell to the international community as it ponders what to do about a fanatic Islamist regime acquiring nuclear weapons. With a nuclear-armed Iran lurking in the background, the suicide bombing in Tel Aviv and the Osama bin Laden warning to the U.S., may be two parallel lines that could converge in the future - unless Iran is barred from getting the bomb. How long after the Ayatollahs go nuclear would Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad ?

Footnote: Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas condemned the Tel Aviv bombing. He called it: 'A despicable act of terror outside of the Palestinian consensus'. The terrorists have a free hand from Abbas until the January 25th Palestinian election. Abbas has been telling the U.S., the Europeans and Israel that the election will give him a strong show of support. With this consensus he will then be able to dismantle the terrorists and impose his slogan of 'one  authority, one gun' in the chaotic Palestinian society.
