Israel is getting really excited for a Joe Biden administration. They’re laying the framework for Joe Biden to refuse to sign a new nuclear deal.
One of Iran’s top nuclear scientists was assassinated on Friday, Iranian media reported.
The Iranian semi-official Tasnim news agency reported that Mohsen Fakhrizadeh – widely viewed as the architect of Iran’s contentious nuclear programme – was shot dead in the small Iranian city of Absard east of Tehran.
Another semi-official news agency, Fars, said witnesses heard the sound of an explosion and then machine gun fire. The attack targeted a car that Fakhrizadeh was in.
The area around Absard is filled with vacation villas for the Iranian elite with a view of Mount Damavand, the highest peak in the country. Roads on Friday, part of the Iranian weekend, were emptier than normal due to a lockdown over the coronavirus pandemic, offering his attackers a chance to strike with fewer people around.
The wounded, including Fakhrizadeh’s bodyguards, were later taken to a local hospital, according to Fars.
State television on its website later published a photograph of security forces blocking off the road. Photos and video shared online showed a Nissan sedan with bullet holes through the windshield and blood pooled on the road.
Fakhrizadeh, a former brigadier general in the Iranian Republican Guards Corps (IRGC), was accused by Iran’s regional rival Israel of leading plans to produce nuclear weapons.
Absard is frankly a really nice place. It looks a lot like Southern California.
However, like in Southern California, many of the villas are frankly not very nice.
I wish that everyone in the world would stop building villas that look like that, but I don’t have the ability to stop them.
The Iranians are calling the assassination “terrorism.”
Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today. This cowardice—with serious indications of Israeli role—shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators
Iran calls on int'l community—and especially EU—to end their shameful double standards & condemn this act of state terror.

Technically, this isn’t really terrorism, is it?
Terrorism is usually killing random people in order to create a climate of fear. Targeting a high-value target in an assassination doesn’t have the goal of creating fear, but rather the goal of eliminating a specific target.
The point is: the neocon Jews that surrounded Joe Biden before he was allegedly elected said that he would not sign another nuclear deal with Iran. Somehow, they knew that. Now, we have Israel attempting to make it impossible for another deal to be signed.
It seems that the Jews are winning big on every front, yet again.
We don’t know if Joe Biden will confront Iran directly if he gets into office, but he would certainly attack Syria and work toward a direct conflict with Iran.
