WILL ISRAEL ATTACK IRAN

In my last column posted the morning of April 15, I wrote that Iranian-sponsored terrorists could attack locations in the U.S. with incendiary devices. On the afternoon of April 15, two locations in Boston were attacked by 2 Muslim terrorist brothers with exploding devices.
In my last column, I also referred to terrorists derailing trains, and on April 22, Canadian police announced they had just thwarted terrorists' plan to derail passenger trains in the greater Toronto area (Canada is part of NATO, which these terrorists would probably say had killed innocent Muslim civilians in bombing raids overseas). Canadian authorities said the terror suspects had received support from Al-Qaeda elements in Iran.
Thirdly, in my last column, I referred to the alliance between Iran and Syria. In the past, I have mentioned how terrorists could cause serious damage by hacking into our national electrical grid and cutting off power around the nation. And they could hack into our banking system and wipe out or withdraw money from people's accounts. On April 23, the Syrian Electronic Army (pro-Assad hackers) hacked into the Associated Press website and posted a bogus news item about the White House being attacked and President Obama injured. This caused the stock market to drop, resulting in some people losing a lot of money.
Lastly, in my April 15 column, I said terrorists could use contaminants (I meant lethal ones), and on April 16 an envelope containing the highly toxic ricin was received at the U.S. Capitol for U.S. Senator Roger Wicker from Mississippi. A similar envelope was received the following day for President Obama at the White House. Almost immediately, authorities arrested an Elvis impersonator for this and incarcerated him for a week, only to find out then that he was innocent. This means there is still a terrorist on the loose in the U.S. Of couorse, this terrorist may have nothing to do with radical Islan or Iran. However, ricin is not that easily obtained, and it does seem too coincidental that the envelope containing the ricin was received at the Capitol the day after the Boston terrorists' bombings. According to an Associated Press report, the envelopes sent to the U.S. Senator and to President Obama were mailed from Memphis, TN on April 8. That it one week to the day BEFORE the Boston bombings! Just a coincidence?
The older Boston terrorist brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed by police and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, was seriously wounded. Dzhokhar has said he was just following his older brother, and that their motives were the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is somewhat questionable, though, as the Iraq war ended in 2011 and American combat operations are to end in Afghanistan next year. If the American role in those 2 wars was the motive for the Boston terrorist attacks, it would seem they would have done something long before now.
It may be that something else was driving the Boston attacks. The Tsarnaev brothers were from Chechnya, but had been living here a long time. Last year, the older brother, Tamerlan, returned to Chechnya for 6 months, and I suspect he connected with Al-Qaeda affiliated Chechen rebels who had been trained at the Revolutionary Guards Imam Ali training camp located close to Tajrish Square in Teheran. In addition to learning the latest terror techniques there, the rebels probably were ideologically indoctrinated by the hardline Iranian mullahs at Qom (see Con Coughlin's "Teheran 'secretly trained' Chechens to fight in Russia" in the November 27, 2005 SUNDAY TELEGRAPH).
It is no secret that in the past, Iran and Al-Qaeda have worked together. Tamerlan had been radicalized at a Boston mosque that has received funding from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Development Bank, which is a subsidiary of the Oranization of the Islamic Conference, whose largest shareholders have been Saudi Arabia, Libya and Iran (which together have 48 % of the bank's stock).
What may have happened is a radicalized Tamerlan contacted the Chechen rebels who encouraged him to take some kind of terrorist action within the U.S. Since the U.S. really hadn't taken any action against the Chechen rebels, and had actually been somewhat supportive of the rebels' desire for an independent state, the rebels' motivation for encouraging Tamerlan to conduct a terrorist attack against the U.S. may have been prompted by recent threats by the U.S. (and Israel) against Iran. And since the mosque in Boston attended by Tamerlan had received funding from a bank which is a subsidiary of an organization which has Iran as one of its major shareholders, it is logical that the mosque's imam is sympathetic to the Iranian cause. He probably often railed against the U.S. and Israel and their threats against Iran's nuclear development program.
Iran's possible responses to these threats are to capitulate, or to launch some kind of pre-emptive strike against Israel or the U.S., or to send a "shot across the bow" by having sponsored terrorists conduct small attacks in the U.S., showing Americans how easy it would be for Iranian agents or sympathizers here to inflict such damage many times over. This latter option may be what was behind the almost simultaneous terrorist activities in Boston and Toronto, and the hacking of the Associated Press website.
At his first press conference following the Boston attacks, President Obama looked very concerned and said his administration would find those responsible. I think he looked concerned because he already has a good idea of who is behind them, but he is loathe to take military action against Iran. This has been the case in presidential administration after administration. Robert Baer, former CIA operative in the Middle East, in SEE NO EVIL related that Iran was responsible for the U.S. Embassy and Marine barracks bombings in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983 and the U.S. Navy's Fleet Center in Naples, Italy in 1988. Also, in BIN LADEN, Yossef Bodansky (director of the U.S. House of Representatives Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare) asserts that "in the early months of 1996, Tehran (Iran) started laying the foundation for the next phase of the terrorist jihad, establishment of the Hizbollah International." And Bodansky said their first strikes included the bombing of the U.S. barracks in Khobar, Saudi Arabia; the downing of TWA 800; and the assassination of a U.S. intelligence officer in Cairo.
Relevant to the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on September 11, 2001, Bodansky in TARGET AMERICA: TERRORISM IN THE U.S. TODAY revealed that "the training of suicide pilots started at Bushehr Air Base in Iran in the early 1980s....One of the exercises included having an Islamic jihad detachment seize (or hijack) a transport aircraft. Then, trained air crews from among the terrorists would crash the airliner with its passengers into a selected objective."
And, according to Jim Crogan in "An Oklahoma Mystery: New hints of links between Timothy McVeigh and Middle Eastern terrorists" (L.A. WEEKLY, July 24-30, 2002), "...after the (Oklahoma City) bombing, it was determined that Oklahoma City had been on the list of potential targets.'...An undated intelligence report by Bodansky discusses alleged terrorist training inside the U.S. that included some 'Lilly Whites.'...Bodansky states the training was ordered by Iran and conducted by Hamas operatives."
President Obama's concerned visage, rather, is because if the Boston bombers were trained by Chechen rebels linked to Al-Qaeda and supported by Iran, it would cause Americans to see how easy it is for terrorists to carry out attacks anywhere in the U.S. (what if 20 Iranian-supported terrorists simultaneously set off 20 bombs in 20 American cities?). Americans across the country might become afraid their government cannot stop these terrorists from attacking their own hometowns.
President Obama's concerned look also is because if Iran is behind the Boston attacks, then he would feel compelled to retaliate in some way. However, because Iran would be one step removed from the attack by having a Chechen-trained terrorist carry them out, Iran would still be able to play the "martyr" by saying the U.S. attacked first. Iran would claim the U.S. was acting in support of Israel, and therefore would appeal to Muslims around the world for support against the "aggressor" U.S. acting as surrogate for Israel.

Thus, President Obama may in the end try to portray the Boston bombers as lone terrorists acting on their own with perhaps some training by Al-Qaeda affiliated Chechen rebels, but "no known ties to Iran." Remember that Iran plays an important part in the secret Nazi plan described in my latest book, THE POWER ELITE AND THE SECRET NAZI PLAN. And what does the Power Elite (PE) get out of the Boston terrorist attacks? Dr. Phil O'Halloran, former editor of the intelligence magazine RELEVANCE, predicts that we will now hear calls for more surveillance cameras in our cities because that's how the Boston bombers were identified. Secondly, he says that because the bombers were immigrants, we will probably also hear calls for a national ID. And we may hear calls for more government surveillance drones to track down terrorists inside the U.S. All of these will limit our freedoms, which is a major part of the PE's plan for total control.
