I hate to say this Sarah but I think the Iranians were the first to point fingers at Israel and the Mossad, but then again when someone has a tummy ache they blame us too so nothing new there. I don't think we will ever know for sure who did it, much like stuxnet or Duqu cyber attacks, but personally I don't care. The point is Israel and the US / EU can use the disenchantment within Iran to their benefit. I am sure there are lots of people who would just love to get back at the government. Who needs planes and bombs when you have millions of people who hate their own government!

Beautiful words which serve to put a smile on one's face, but, if I may be so bold as to ask: how is it that you can know all these things for a certainty, while the rest of us still remain in the dark?

Actually, they have not pointed a finger at Israel, at least not officially. To do so would be to acknowledge that they are basically Israel's bitch, and they will never do that. The base that was completely destroyed -- along with its entire arsenal of weapons -- is (or was, I guess) near Teheran. For starters, Iran will never admit that Israel was able to enter Iran without being detected, destroy one of the most closely-guarded of Iranian military bases, and then get away, scot-free, also without being detected. By the way -- you can pretty much discount involvement of Iranian dissident groups. For one thing, the dissident groups are riddled with informers, and Israel would never trust serious operational matters to such groups. For another thing, Israel doesn't need help, especially from amateurs. You need look no further than the results to figure that out. Iran knows EXACTLY who destroyed their Shahab arsenal. They also know that they are powerless to do anything about it, because to do so would be tantamount to acknowledging a weakness which they do not wish to admit. Win-win for Israel; big-time.

Iran is so inept that the bomb,they work so hard to create, will explode in their face.

Indeed, but it is preferably done after all such acts of sabotage have been carried out thus endangering as few Israelis as possible while still showing who's the big fish in the Middle East. Then again, the Iranians are probably on the look out for Iranian Jews etc. anyway.

No one is going to find any Israeli agents on the ground in Iran, least of all the Iranians. There is political capital to be gained from having the Iranians seriously on the lookout, but not being able to stop acts of sabotage or assassination, either. Much political capital. The capital takes the form of Iran knowing that Israel has "boots on the ground," so to speak, and being powerless to do anything about it. Rest assured that Russia, China and Turkey are observing with great interest, and making pragmatic decisions based on those observations.
