A political analyst says Israel’s haste to blame Iran and the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah for the bombing in Bulgaria suggests Tel Aviv is probably the author of the attack.
“Even before the dust had settled and the victims were laid to rest, the Israelis and their global media assets were blaming Iran for the attack in Burgas, Bulgaria,” Dr. Kevin Barrett wrote in an article published on Press TV Website.
A deadly attack against Israeli tourists took place in the Black Sea city of Burgas, located some 400 kilometers (248 miles) east of the Bulgarian capital Sofia, on Wednesday.
“History shows that whenever authorities blame a convenient scapegoat before the evidence is in, the attack in question is almost certainly a false-flag event.”
False-flag terror operations seek to cast blame on the designated scapegoat as quickly as possible. Why? Because most people are heavily influenced by first impressions. If the first report we hear tells us that the North Vietnamese attacked a US ship, that JFK was shot by a Communist named Oswald, that Osama Bin Laden and 19 young Arabs orchestrated the events of 9/11, or that Iran was behind the Bulgarian bus bombing, people are likely to continue to believe that initial report, even if subsequent evidence conclusively disproves it.
Barrett says another reason for the “rush to judgment” is that public anger quickly fades after the incident; therefore a quick media hype blaming the scapegoat is necessary to take the most advantage of the “wave of useful indignation” that the event provokes.
Barrett concludes that “Iranian intelligence is very professional. Yes, they may someday find a way to take revenge against Israel for the ongoing wave of murders and terrorism against Iranian civilians and scientists - as would any other intelligence agency in their place - but hokey plots like the Saudi Ambassador fiasco, or going after a busload of Israeli tourists, just isn't their style. And the last thing Iran wants right now is to give Israel and its American vassal the excuse to launch a war.”
