I came by this via NiqNaq, who is quoting from the Jerusalem Post.
"In the first attack, the wife of an Israeli diplomat was injured when a bomb exploded in her car in New Delhi, India. The woman succeeded in driving to the Israeli embassy where she was evacuated to a nearby hospital."
I am going to repeat that paragraph
"In the first attack, the wife of an Israeli diplomat was injured when a bomb exploded in her car in New Delhi, India. The woman succeeded in driving to the Israeli embassy where she was evacuated to a nearby hospital."She drove herself to the Israeli embassy. From where? And was evacuated to the hospital.
I am going to remind readers of the story from yesterday that "coincidentally" saw two Israeli doctors appear and magically the woman is whisked back to Israel.
"Two Israeli doctors – coincidentally in New Delhi at the time, in coordination with the Foreign Ministry – arrived at the hospital and took charge of her medical care. Defense officials said they were discussing the possibility of evacuating Yehoshua-Koren to Israel."As I mentioned yesterday, I am not a coincidence theorist. The only way this scenario makes any sense to me is if the woman contacted the Israeli embassy and the embassy arranged for the two Israeli doctors to appear at the New Delhi hospital to whisk the woman back to Israel and keep her away from the Indian media
When she gets back to Israel apparently then she undergoes surgery to remove shrapnel from her back and liver......??
"Doctors operated on her Monday night to remove shrapnel from her back and liver, and she will remain under anesthesia until a decision is made on further treatment."
Correct me if I am mistaken, please. Is a wound to the liver not a very serious matter?
That they would take this woman from India to Israel to operate on her?
And why is it being reported that she will "remain under anesthesia"?
Does this mean she is unconscious? If she is unconscious how could she speak from her hospital bed, recounting her memory of the incident?
And the story that was being touted yesterday about the "magnet attached to the car" seems to be up in the air.
"Local authorities were investigating the possibility that the bomb was planted under the car or alternatively that an assassin on a motorbike attached it to the vehicle as it was driving. Indian television cited witnesses who saw a motorbike following the car and possibly throwing an object toward it before the explosion."
Now it was either an assassin on a motorbike or according to multiple eye witness accounts, someone throwing an object at the vehicle prior to the explosion.
This attack didn't make sense yesterday and it makes even less sense today.
Recall in the previous post I mentioned the fact that Iran and India have made a very sensible trade agreement between themselves.
Also read here, it is being reported today that India and Iran have worked out a deal
Indian and Iranian governments have worked out Rupee trade mechanism for payment of India's total crude imports from the latter in Rupees rather than convertible currency - the US Dollar normally used for such trade globally. The new mechanism is expected to be operational in two months.
Which surely had to have annoyed all concerned?
The US. Israel. Bankers....
So we would have to ask ourselves. Why would Iran undertake an action that would detrimentally affect their relationship with India? I can't see one good reason why they would!
Therefore, it would seem much more sensible that Israel and the US had more to gain from this attack.
India surely realizes this-
India will have to choose between Iran, Israel: American expert
Also-Bombing puts India's trade ties with Iran to the test
India's determination to pursue trade with Iran despite Western sanctions could be undermined as wary exporters back away from fresh deals after a bomb attack in New Delhi blamed on Tehran, a trade association chief said on Tuesday.
Up to now India has not gone along with new financial sanctions imposed by the United States and European Union to punish Iran over its disputed nuclear programme. Instead, New Delhi has come up with elaborate trade and barter arrangements to pay for oil supplies.
Updated to add..
Bomb suspects were Anti-Iran exiles- that means they are opposed to Iran
Four Iranians suspected of involvement in a botched bomb plot targeting Israeli diplomats in Bangkok were members of an exiled Iranian opposition group which wanted the incident to reflect badly on Teheran, Syedsulaiman Husaini, Shia leader of Thailand, said on Sunday.
He claimed the four belonged to the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organisation (also known as MEK, MKO and the People's Mujahedeen Organisation of Iran, or PMOI) which aims to overthrow the current Iranian government.
