Shadow War: Iran vs. Israel On Nuclear, Cyberwar, Terrorism

By Dan Raviv

Even as Iran’s intelligence minister announces that around 20 suspects have been arrested in Iran — charged with working for Israeli intelligence, regarding the assassinations of at least five nuclear scientists — there is new evidence that Iran and its mostly Lebanese Shi’ite Muslim agents in Hezbollah were attacking uninvolved Israelis this year.
iran spies, israel spy, spies against armageddonThe British newspaper The Guardian, today gathers the evidence from India, Thailand, and other countries — showing that Iranian operatives made and planted bombs aimed at Israelis.  The newspaper report says the timing is something of a puzzle, although it may have been an effort by someone in Iran — and international law enforcement authorities are not sure precisely who in Iran is responsible — to demonstrate what trouble the Iranians could cause if they feel their backs are against a wall.   Terrorism in many countries could be a form of retaliation, if the United States and/or Israel were to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, and perhaps also if economic sanctions against Iran become even harsher.
In Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars, to be published July 9, 2012, Yossi Melman and I show how Israel’s invasion of Lebanon in 1982 — designed, at the time, to push Yasser Arafat and his PLO out of Israel’s northern neighbor — led to extreme strife between Israel and the Lebanese Shi’ites of Hezbollah.   One of our chapters is entitled “A New Enemy,” as a shadow war — fueled on the Hezbollah side by Iran — has been going on now for well over two decades.  We’ll highlight, also, some new information about the Summer 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah — and concern that even more missiles may fly if there is another outbreak of fighting along and beyond the Israel-Lebanon border.
