I thought sure it was exponents of the Extreme Right. “Iran was behind bomb plot against Israeli diplomats, investigators find,” by Jason Burke in the Guardian, June 17 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A multinational investigation into bomb plots targeting Israeli diplomats earlier this year has produced the clearest evidence yet that Iran was involved, illustrating the risks to the west if it fails to reach detente with Tehran over its nuclear weapons programme.
Talks on Iran’s nuclear aspirations resume in Moscow on Monday, and western intelligence officials have told the Guardian the price of failure could be high. With Israel refusing to rule out military action if diplomacy fails, intelligence officials fear the volley of attacks carried out by Iranian operatives show Tehran is capable of an asymmetric response. Though the officials admit that predictions are extremely difficult to make, their concerns are based on investigations into plots against Israeli diplomats in India, Thailand and Georgia in February which point to the involvement of Iran.
In India, local agencies told ministers a bomb attack which badly injured the wife of the Israeli military attachÃ© in New Delhi in February was the work of an Iranian “security entity”. Their conclusions have not previously been made public and Indian officials have made significant efforts to avoid blaming Tehran, an ally and oil supplier.
The governments of Georgia and Thailand, which both uncovered bomb plots on the day of the Delhi attack, have also not officially blamed Iran.
European intelligence officials told the Guardian they now found it difficult to judge Tehran’s “risk calculus”….
Yes, it’s very tough, you geniuses.
