It’s true that earlier this month, the outgoing head of the Mossad, Meir Dagan, said Iran wouldn’t be able to acquire a nuclear bomb until 2015 at the earliest (revising a 2009 assessment, in which he told an Israeli parliamentary panel that Iran could have its first nuclear warhead by 2014).
But the fact that the estimate for Iran to reach bomb-making capacity has been pushed back a year doesn’t take the onus off of the Iranian government to cooperate with the West and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
First there are reports about Mossad agents being in Dubai. Now an Iranian MP openly admits that his country’s agents have also been operating there. Iran and Israel do have more in common that meets the eye. Who knows, while there they may have accidentally played Tennis together. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/meir-javedanfar/mossad-may-be-wrong-what_b_479772.html
Ali Akbar Mohtashamipour, the Iranian clergy who established Hezbollah in Lebanon is being threatened. Not by foreign intelligence agencies, rather, by his own countrymen.
– Is Iran’s leadership apocalyptic? could such beliefs spark a nuclear attack by Iran?
– Did president Ahmadinejad exaggerate Iran’s nuclear achievements in his latest speech?
– What are Israel’s concerns regarding the expected negotiations between Iran and the US?
These are some of the questions answered by Meir Javedanfar, Michael Adler of the Woodrow Wilson International Center and George Le Guelte of Institute of International Studies in Paris in this two part TV debate.

This afternoon, Haaretz, quoting the Iraqi site Almalaf ran the story “Hezbollah chief poisoned; Iranian doctors saved his life”.
Haaretz is one of, if not the most credible newspaper in Israel. The journalist who broke this story, is Yoav Stern. He is a fluent Arabic speaker and a strict professional when it comes to the reliability of his sources.
Therefore the story could be true.
But we must be aware of the circumstances surrounding this story.
There is currently a psychological warfare going on between Israel and Iran.
For example, the other day, Iranian press ran a story that the head of Mossad, Meir Dagan has been assassinated in Amman, Jordan. It quoted a blog in Montreal called Filka Israel, which it says belongs to the Blogspot community. Later on, it ran another story which said that the news is false, and is part of a “Zionist psychological warfare”.
The Nasrallah story may be part of the same game. It is possible that the Iranians may feel that they were tricked by the Israelis over the Dagan assassination story. And now they are getting their own back with the Nasrallah poisoning story.
