  1. What fools. So proud of killing Palestinians that they crow about it to the high heavens, but they don’t want to admit they offed an Iranian general. Why? Because Iran can fight back?

  2. Are you taking this claim at face value or have you seen some of the evidence referenced in the quotation?

    If so, what is the evidence?

    1. Bob, I’m taking a claim by Iran that is the same exact claim as my source, as credible.

      As for whether Iranian intelligence services share such evidence with me, no they don’t. But if you want to ask them on my behalf I’d be delighted to see what they have.

    1. Fascinating that Ynet panders to Israelis’ (I presume, like you) smug superiority complex in which they look down at everything Iran with disdain. This is a nasty habit which will end up biting you in the tush in the end. For every PressTV in Iran there are five comparable shmattehs in Israel (among those we could name are Inyan Merkazi, Arutz Sheva, Debka Files, Makor Rishon). Need I continue.

      1. “(among those we could name are Inyan Merkazi, Arutz Sheva, Debka Files, Makor Rishon)”

        pressTV is not analogious to ANY of those. none of those are state owned\operated.

        “Need I continue”

        please do.

        “smug superiority complex”

        ehem. mirror. kettle. pot. dark color.

        1. A distinction without a difference. The two nations’ media is totally different. Most media in Iran is state-sponsored. Very little private independent journalism there so much harder to have any media that isn’t state sponsored in some way. Besides, are you saying I can find idiotic anti-Iranian crap on state sponsored Israeli TV?

    2. Actually the claims in the article you linked are made by Michael Harris and the story is written by Gordon Duff, both pure US citizens and obviously not Muslims. Iranians only gave them a forum to express their view.
      Under the article is the text:
      The views expressed in this article are those of the author and not necessarily those of Press TV.

      Herenot it is crazy to assume that only Israel is allowed to make and/or is capable to make propaganda.

      A couple of days ago in PressTv was an article about David Albright, that guy who constantly publishes articles with satellite photos about Syrian nuclear power stations and Iranian “bombs” through his ISIS. ISIS claims to be

      The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) is a non-profit, non-partisan institution dedicated to informing the public about science and policy issues affecting international security. Its primary focus is on stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and related technology to other nations and terrorists, bringing about greater transparency of nuclear activities worldwide, strengthening the international non-proliferation regime, and achieving deep cuts in nuclear arsenals.

      That PressTv article by Jim Dean (also US citizen and propably Christian, not Iranian and a Muslim) tells us that David Albright has an Israeli passport, has a condominium in Haifa and gets a VIP treatment in Israel. A neutral expert or an Israeli undercover propagandist? Albright doesn’t mention his bindings to Israel when publishes his constant reports, which makes him WHAT?

      Israeli “system” has always a “celebration” if it manages to feed to western media some more or less baseless horror story of Iranian (or Syrian or Iraqi or Pakistani etc) “nukes” and “WMDs”. The normal route is
      A) anonymous diplomats, intelligence experts, etc (guess from where) give ” interviews” and/or data to some “trusted and loyal” western media
      B) at once after the first article all Israeli media begins to quote that story and make it “bigger” as presenting it as a “western” view
      C) then (sometimes) it becomes international news.

      Why should Iranians hesitate to publish negative information about Israel when Israel all the time produces propaganda against Iran? Same moral standards should be demanded from both sides.

  3. For whatever it’s worth, this recent BBC Persian article reports as follows:

    On 12/16/12 Iran’s police chief, Brigadier Esmail Ahmadi Moghaddam, stated that Asgari had been imprisoned in Iran for a period of at least 15 months, but that ultimately none of the charges against him were proven. The police chief did not specify the time of the arrest or the charges and denied that Asgari had defected, but lamented that some Iranian officials cast doubt on Asgari having been abducted. The chief and Asgari’s wife have criticized the Iranian government’s lack of serious investigation of Asgari’s case. Two years ago, Hossein Alaei, a former IRGC commander, had complained that had Asgari not been arrested while doing service and not prematurely retired, he would have probably had a different fate. Also 2 years ago, Martin Nesirky, UN’s Secretary-General spox, had stated that questions regarding Asgari’s situation should be directed to UNHCR, suggesting that he considered it a refugee issue.

    [Note that if you search for terms such as “Alireza Asgari Iran imprisonment” in English, you’ll get a lot of hits regarding the recent arrest of a labor activist of the same name, unrelated to the present topic.]

    1. I didn’t make it “sound” like anything. You read into it what you thought, which is far different. Of course, Eichmann deserved justice. But I think it was a mistake for Israel to try him itself. This should’ve happened via an international tribunal. But if that was impracticable I would’ve favored trial in Israel. As to kidnapping him, given that Argentina at the time would’ve never agreed to extradition, I think his kidnapping was a grey area.

      But the problem is that Eichmann’s kidnapping gave Mossad carte blanche to use kidnapping as a tool in other far less justified circumstances like the ones I listed.
