Relatives and friends mourn over the coffin of Darioush Rezaeinejad, shown in the picture on the coffin, in a funeral ceremony, July 24, 2011, in Tehran, Iran, who was killed in a deadly shooting July 23. (AP Photo).
The Americans deny everything.
The Israelis also deny everything -- but with a smile, according to a senior U.S. official.
Regardless of who is killing Iran's nuclear scientists, however -- the Israelis, the Americans or the Iranians themselves -- there's no question that researchers and officials linked to Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program keep turning up dead.
Since 2007, four different scientists allegedly associated with the nation's nuclear weapons program have died via bomb, gunshot or poisoning, while a fifth barely survived a car bombing.
The most recent victim, 35-year-old Darioush Rezaeinejad, was shot in the neck outside his daughter's Tehran kindergarten on Saturday by two gunmen on a motorcycle. According to an unconfirmed report in an Israeli intelligence publication, Rezaeinejad was working on a nuclear detonator, and was seen daily at a nuclear lab in northern Tehran.
Rezaeinejad's murder sparked official outrage in Iran. State media published an online report Sunday evening in which a leader of the nation's parliament said the killing showed the "desperation" of the U.S. and Israel.
"When the Americans and the Zionist regime realized that they cannot stand against the resolve of the Iranian nation and [after they] witnessed our nuclear achievements they resorted to assassinating our scientists," said Kazem Jalali, head of the parliament's national security committee, according to the report.
Both Americans and Israelis have the history, motivation and capability organise assassinations overseas!
