Israel Halted Iranian Assassination Campaign at US Urging

By: JTA

The Obama administration pressured Israel to stop assassinating Iran’s top nuclear scientists, according to a CBS News report.

Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency ran an assassination campaign for several years, during which time at least five Iranian scientists were killed, most by bombs planted on their cars, national correspondent Dan Raviv reported Saturday on the CBS News website.

“Remarkably, the Israeli assassins were never caught — obviously having long-established safe houses inside Iran — although several Iranians who may have helped the Mossad were arrested and executed,” Raviv wrote.

His report was published a day before the book Raviv co-authored, “Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars,” was coming out with an updated edition.

“Recently, as I sought to update a book I co-wrote about the history of Israel’s intelligence agencies, sources close to them revealed that they felt pressure from the Obama Administration — more than a hint — to stop carrying out assassinations inside Iran,” he wrote, without elaborating.

Raviv, citing sources “close to” Israel’s intelligence agencies, reported that Mossad officials decided that the campaign had become “too dangerous” and decided to pull out before any of their spies were caught and killed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the Mossad to concentrate on finding evidence that Iran is violating the interim agreement it signed with the world powers in November, Raviv reported.

  5. Lisa House says:

  6. is this guy for real no let them continue making bombs to destroy us this is Outrageous

  7. this guy is smoking something consider the source

  8. Steve Brown says:

    Let's remember which groups helped to vote Obama into office…lemmie see: yep, Blacks and Jews led the way. Let's hope we don't pay the ultimate price for our stupidity. "Never Again" should apply equally to votes for any Appeaser US parties.

    That's right: I'm talking to you. You know who you are.

  9. Again, the obvious is that Israel yielded to pressure from Obama. Obama is not a lover of Israel and one wonders what his true feelings are and his relation to the Islamists who are seeking Israel's destruction. Netanyahu is meeting with Obama and please G-d, we hope he is not pressured to yield in any way to giving up land or any other concessions to the Palestinians which would be nothing but suicide for Israel.

  10. Ron Kall says:

    That's twice Jews helped obysmal win!! They do know who they are and they are willfully blind to the repercussions being visited upon Israel!
