Israel: Iran Funded Tel Aviv Bombing -
Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said Israel has "decisive proof that the attack in Tel Aviv was a direct result of the Axis of Terror that operates between Iran and Syria. Iran supplied the money, and [Islamic] Jihad's headquarters in Damascus directed the organization's operatives in Nablus, giving operational orders and instructions." Israel has given details of the intelligence behind Mofaz's statements to the U.S., the EU, and Egypt.
Mofaz noted that the blast occurred while Iranian President Ahmadinejad was in Damascus meeting with Syrian President Assad in "the terror summit." "Damascus is the only place where the Iranian president is still welcomed," Mofaz noted. "The Iranian-Syrian terror axis is not Israel's private problem." According to police, the bomber blew himself up in the restaurant's bathroom and may have been trying to prepare the explosive device when it went off prematurely.

In another very telling development from the global psych ward;
FDI has learned from sources in Iran that the high command of the Revolutionary Guards Air Force have issued new orders to Shahab-3 missile units, effective since Tuesday, Jan. 16, ordering them to move mobile missile launchers every 24 hours in view of a potential pre-emptive strike by the U.S. or Israel. FDI's source says the launchers move only at night, and have been instructed to change their postions "in a radius of 30 to 35 kilometers." Before the new orders, the Shahab-3 units changed position on a weekly basis. Advance Shahab-3 units have been positioned in Kermanshah and Hamadan province, within striking distance of Israel. Reserve mobile launchers have bee moved to Esfahan and Fars province.
Separate sources in the U.S. and Iran have told FDI recently that the Iranian regime is planning a nuclear weapons test before the Iranian New Year on March 20, 2006.
In Tehran, a website with close ties to former president Hashemi-Rafsajani, aftab.com, today carried an interview with "national security expert," Shahrouz Ebrahimi. In an article titled "The military threat against Iran is serious," Ebrahimi argued that given the serious miltiary threats now facing Iran from Israel and the United States, "the decision-makers should observe the strategic interests of Iran, not their own tactical interests. They should pursue a moderate understanding of the world." It was one more shot across the bow of Ahmadinejad from the Rafsajani camp. ...Foundation for Democracy in Iran.

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad began a visit to Syria Thursday to consolidate an old alliance made increasingly crucial as both countries face mounting U.S. pressure and the threat of international sanctions," the Associated Press reports:
Syria is Iran's closest Arab ally. The two countries have had close relations since 1980 when Syria sided with Iran against Iraq at the start of the Iran-Iraq war.
How is this possible? Syria is a secular Baathist dictatorship, while Iran is ruled by Muslim fundamentalists. Everyone knows these groups are like oil and water; that's why Saddam Hussein's Iraq never had anything to do with al Qaeda! (Well, other than things like hosting terrorist training camps, sending officials to visit al Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan, sheltering Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, publishing magazines celebrating the Sept. 11 attacks, and a few other things like that. But c'mon, that's small beer!)
