Tehran, Iran, Jul. 22 – A news agency run by the office of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed that Israel was behind the assassination of 7,000 Iraqi officials since the end of the 2003 U.S.-led war on Iraq.

Fars News Agency used as its source several unnamed “Iraqi security officials”, who claimed that the Iraqi security had uncovered a “terrorist network with ties to Israel”. It said that tools and devices belonging to the Israeli military and a list of assassination targets were found in an insurgent safehouse.

The latest accusations against Israel in Iran’s state-run media follow remarks by Ayatollah Khamenei, who told Iraq’s visiting Prime Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari earlier this week that “it would not be surprising to find that Zionist agents are involved in the turmoil in Iraq”, the official news agency, IRNA, reported.

Fars news agency had previously claimed that the July 7 London bombings were planned by the Jewish state. “The London bombings were also part of the mischief by Israel”, it said. “The Zionist entity is using the mask of Al-Qaeda and [Abu Musab”> Zarqawi to hunt down diplomats based in Iraq”.

“Israel is now in control of religious extremists, particularly the Wahabis and the Salafis, in Arabia and North Africa”, it added.

In recent days, Iran’s state-run media and press have been full of stories portraying Israel as being behind the London bombings. The semi-official daily Jomhouri-Islami wrote on July 7 that “The terrorist attacks in London have been seen by some analysts as a pre-planned action with specific objectives by the security services of Israel and the U.S., with the cooperation or connivance of British security [services”>”.

“Hours after the blasts in London, the Press Association quoted an Israeli embassy official in London as saying that British security officials had warned the embassy of terrorist attacks only hours before the bombings”, Jomhouri Islami wrote.

“The racist Zionists stepped up their occupation after the September 11, 2001, incidents. The Zionist regime’s actions after the attacks in the U.S., Madrid and London were such that they must have been planned long in advance…The best tools for the Zionists and the Americans would be to use groups like Al-Qaeda or its European branches for such attacks, which will be impossible to prove”, the semi-official daily, which is close to Ayatollah Khamenei, added.

Analysts see the rise in anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic invective in Iran’s state-run media after the election of ultra-conservative Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as being linked to the more aggressive posture of Iranian leaders in the region and on the international scene.
