#4 More good details about the gentleman at the link. He was a senior Al Quds officer, a member of Hizb'allah's Revolutionary Council as Iran's "Special Representative of the President of the Islamic Republic." since 2006, and controlled a budget of US$200 million/year....pretending to be a civil engineer.

I wonder If Israel had his cell phone bugged? Goodness knows they found him easily enough...

#5 It's either the Mossad or Uncle Vinny, if you owe Vinny money, he'll find you, you owe the Mossad ANYTHING they will find you.

Too bad some field officer didn't get to do the honors with a skull tap. That sends a more subtle and disturbing message than an air strike that oh by the way happened to whack this guy.

#9 Heck. I would have been a civil engineer if it hadn't been for the calculus. Or maybe the algebra.

#12 In Tehran, the influential IRGC preacher, Hojjat-ol-Eslam Mehdi Ta’eb, declared Wednesday in a sermon that Syria’s importance to the Islamic Republic is greater even than the oil region of Khuzestan in southern Iran.
