1. Since when is a blog a reliable source of news?
Avi ,   Israel   (11.13.11)
Maybe I'll start my own blog and say the moon is on a direct course of impact with Earth. Iran is known to have poor maintenance skills. Their few helicopters and aircrafts crash often and every year there are explosions in munition bases.
2. Mossad behind Iran blast

3. What evidence does the lunar leftist present?He writes
PETER SM ,   AUSTEALIA   (11.13.11)
anti Israel articles regularly .
4. Absolutely AMAZING.....
Gideon Reader   (11.13.11) a nonentity blogging pisher from the middle of nowhere with no more access to "knowledgable sources" is able to cobble up a "wishfull thinking" scenario, complete with such descriptive and colorful "thought pics". I know some folks with professional acess to "situations, circumstances and events" that are more circumspect about things taking place far, far away and in a language not spoken or read by the ernest blogger. I believe i will wait for the real story to emerge from the smoke and rubble.
5. Blogger Richard Silverstein has a big trap
Blogger? ,   Israel   (11.13.11)
where did he get his info from
6. Silverstein were do you get this crap

Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.13.11)
Of course Israel was behind the disaster at the Iranian base. Now Iran appreciates just how long a reach Israel has. The rhetoric coming out of Teheran for thirty-two years has been aggressive and threatening. Iran needed to understand that Israel can do pretty much what it wants, where it wants. I do believe the message was received. Iran needs to take heed. It will only get worse for them, and there is nothing they will be able to do about it.
8. Mossad couldnt' have been responsible
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (11.13.11)
Yuk, Yuk, Yuk, Ha, Ha Ha
9. Someone always says it's Mossad
Marco   (11.13.11)
There could be an earthquake tomorrow and someone will say it's Mossad. Why is this news?
10. Oh what people will do for some attention!!
Talula ,   Israel   (11.13.11)
There are no prizes for guessing how many millions of people will take to their blogs and blame Israel. And, whether it's true or not - so what?
11. Why quote a vile libel-blogger?
david ,   Haifa, IL   (11.13.11)
12. I guess Iran doesn't stand a chance against the Mossad
Charles   (11.13.11)
If the Mossad can do this, there isn't much they cannot do. Iran is doomed.
13. Ignore!
David ,   Haifa   (11.13.11)
Stop giving that non-person RS any more attention than he deserves, which is not a lot.
stude ham   (11.13.11)
for this latest iranian sign of deep trouble with its anti-government rebels.
15. BS all the way around...dont believe it for a sec
Al   (11.13.11)
Another attempt to smear Israel by a putz with a website. Bullshit is all I have to say...
16. Since when Silverstein has become a news agency?
NB ,   TA   (11.13.11)
Ynet is a joke
17. an act of war
rJBH ,   methil   (11.13.11)
reap as ye sow o israel
18. Mossad Behind Blast?
Benny ,   Alabama,USA   (11.13.11)
stude ham. If Israel was able to pull this off, it wouldn't be blaming Her, but blessing Her.
19. News?
Steve ,   Melbourne, Australia   (11.13.11)
Amazing that a credible newspaper would take an uncorroborated story that some blogger says is news and reprint it. Please quote me as saying "Random guy says blast probably an accident" in your next story on this topic. Thanks!
20. Consider the Source
emanon ,   USA   (11.13.11)
That organization has a very dubious honor of being on Masada2000's list of anti-Israel allegedly Jewish organizations, although they have a much more colorful term for this list. Whatever TO releases is not always in Israel's best interest nor is it always the truth.
21. powerful Mossad !
Carlos ,   Antwerp   (11.13.11)
Well well , what a powerful weapon is this Mossad . They are behind the revolution in Syria , have provoked all the US and other wars in this region , all the "accidents" in those enemy countries . Not enough ? Israel is also behind all the political decisions made by the US , cutting founds to UNESCO . That are some things our "friends" in my country , Belgium , are telling . If it was all true , can't we be proud then of this little country that influences world politics ?
22. since it shows israel's power :)
bethsabee ,   tel aviv , ISRAEL   (11.13.11)
But you won't be quoted. Because it is soooo much more exciting (rassicurating?) to feel how much and how far Israel can hit. The journalists know how much it is not probable (and how much it is dangerous because of an eventuel retaliation) that Israel and the Mossad are behind the attack, but still they were ready to take advantage of a blog to demonstrate Israel intelligence's poweeeer!!!
23. I have only one question...
dshap ,   Miami, USA   (11.13.11)
Having never heard of the bloogger Silverstein, I Googled his name and looked at his web based newsletter... My question is this: Since his "newsletter is an underground far left wing rag, why would Arutz Sheva or any other mainstream Israeli media give this guy the time it takes to write an article or even to quote his unsubstantiated dribble? It seems to me, there is enough real news to occupy the writers and editors instead of affording this nutjob any credibility that may come from a quote.
DAVID ,   JUDEA   (11.13.11)
Why is it that Ynet has the mentality of 4 year old when it comes to reporting the news. To headline an article based on a blog lacking any real proof, is just plain laziness and irresponsible behavior and shows how unprofessional news gathering has become.At this point in time we can not even secure the security of the people living in the south, so as to credit the Mossad with this kind of operations is just plain stupid.
25. #17 whatever
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (11.13.11)
Keep with the program: The Islamic Republic of Iran has already declared war on Israel a few hundred times and called for the physical extermination of the Jews of Israel. I don't think Israel did it (I think the Saudi's did it in revenge for the assassination plan), but if Israel did it was a legitimate military target and the Iranians have only themselves to blame.
26. Silverstein is an Zionist
Shriber ,   US   (11.13.11)
I wouldn't trust anything Silverstein wrote . He hates Israel and his report is meant to cause trouble. I wouldn't be surprised if Iran uses the claim to blame Israel and attack Jews again.
27. @ David: Seconded this is infantile journalism at its most d
anton orde   (11.13.11)
How can YNET turn this ultra-leftist nonsense into a headline news story?!?
28. hmmm...
tom ,   toronto, canada   (11.13.11)
"the Mossad was responsible for the explosion, in collaboration with the Iranian militant opposition group Mojahedin-e-Khalq." blaming "the Mossad" for everything is not news, but it is very encouraging to hear of an "Iranian militant opposition group". that would definitely be a step in the right direction.
29. nah-nah no sirre
Yerushalmi ,   Jerusalem   (11.13.11)
Everybody knows that Israel can't penetrate Iranian invincible network. So claims Iranian media. Iranians bombed themselves as a false flag operation.
30. A blog? That's some mighty fine reportin' there
PB ,   birmingham, USA   (11.13.11)
Google news somehow had this article compiled under "world news". Thanks, Google!
