Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.20.11)
The Iranian record on industrial safety is approaching that of being Saddam's son-in-law and flying in a helicopter.

10. Happy Hanukka Iran!
Nation ,   Israel   (12.20.11)
Happy too see that Iran is also lighting candles. Keep up the good work.
11. Not sabotage, just an industrial accident
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (12.20.11)
It's not like we in the West (including Israel) haven't experienced such industrial accidents, usually the result of human error or faulty equipment.
12. Happy Hanukah to all of you in Iran!
Emily ,   Israel   (12.20.11)
After all Banu Hosek l'garesh! ;-) "We have come to banish the darkness. In our hands light and fire. Each one of us is a small light and together we are a mighty light. Depart darkness! Go away darkness! Depart before the light! We have come to banish the darkness!"
13. Bomb making
tombaka ,   Florida   (12.20.11)
Reminds me when me and the neighbor kids would try to make a homemade bomb in the woods with detergent and coke. Sounds familiar to all these mishaps.
14. Where is Gabriel Allon?
Jock Ewing ,   Dallas, USA   (12.20.11)
15. One more reason
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (12.20.11)
why Iranians should not be permitted nukes. They would destroy themselves after a "malfunctions".
16. 7 indeed tick tock ;)
anton ,   Ist turkey   (12.20.11)
no matter what happens iran will get its nukes, its not even questionable :)
17. #16 but there won't be time to get them off
18. G-d is Great!
Vladimir ,   Yerushalayim   (12.20.11)
19. News from Iran. NOT good or bad, just News
John ,   Alaska   (12.20.11)
Proverbs 24:17-18 says "Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: "Lest the LORD see [it], and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him." We are not glad this or any other of Iran's recent unpleasant events have happened. We understand that Ha'Shem is in charge, and we let Him work however He wants in Iran. Our sole rejoicing, in this or at any other time, is that we are in Covenant Relationship with Ha'Shem. He is all that matters. As Psalm 73:25-26 says "Whom have I in Heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth, but G-d is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever."
20. To #16 Anton, that is indeed questionable
John ,   Alaska   (12.20.11)
It is not in Scripture that Iran will "get" The Bomb. Nobody knows, and it does not matter. The reason why it does not matter is that it IS in Scripture that Iran will be DESTROYED BY GOD ALMIGHTY (a terrifying enough event to be writ large). Please note that by GOD, I mean the ONLY REAL God, the God of Avraham and of Yitchak and of Ya'acov. We call His name Ha'Shem, because unlike false gods like allah, we do not risk using the name of Ha'Shem in vain. As to His appointment with Iran, we don't know what means He will use, but He has used the IDF to bring Biblical judgement to the world before. The Scripture describes That Day for Iran with terms evokative of fiery judgement and fallout, with Iran left uninhabitable for a long, long time later. Now, do you still feel like mocking the Chosen People and their G-d, dear Anton?
21. hhmm where is OSHA?
Daniel ,   Tracy USA   (12.20.11)
I would say yes we all have our accidents, and yes this could just be one, but dang the string of issues we are seeing certainly raise questions. Maybe not by outside powers either, their is an insurgency inside Iran so it is possible that folks are starting to take matters int their own hands. At this point I think it is wait and see. Hopefully they won't achieve their ambitions and continue having mishaps.
22. A human chain to stop a computer virus, hmmm
Michael Redbourn ,   Arad Israel   (12.20.11)
Iranians are not stupid so presumably the people forming the human chain got paid. It happens in many countries and many people get paid for parading for one group in the morning and an opposing one in the afternoon. Was it Stuxnet or Duqu? Duqu recently opened up back-doors to Iran's military computer networks. With back-doors now open and programs like Stuxnet able to enter freely the destruction of these sites would be relatively easy.
23. #16 - yep, but who will deliver them is the only question
Michael Redbourn ,   Arad Israel   (12.20.11)
Tactical nuclear weapons (or TNW) will most likely be used to destroy Iran's nuclear plants that have been built in fortified locations. Who will use them? The US, NATO or Israel or a combination of all three possibly. Lunatics such as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who want to hasten the end of the world obviously can't be allowed nuclear weapons. China and Russia will stand on the sidelines. China because it wants oil from Iran and Russia because it will want to rebuild the nuclear facilities thereby earning lots of money; and both countries will protest but be glad that the deed was done ;-)
24. Another week; another mishap.
Annette ,   USA   (12.20.11)
Persia, may you continue to have such good weeks.
25. 20
anton ,   ist turkey   (12.20.11)
iam not mockin its someone in past that mocked with thousands then and now its billions :) btw i noticed you intentionally or not mocked with jews yourself if you know what i mean ;)
26. To #25 please use English with more clarity
John ,   Alaska   (12.21.11)
You said: "iam not mockin its someone in past that mocked with thousands then and now its billions :) " I have no idea of whom you are speaking. Are you saying that the doomed Muslims mocked with their thousands and now there are 1.5 billion of them? You also said: "btw i noticed you intentionally or not mocked with jews yourself if you know what i mean ;) " I'm guessing here that you mean that I join with the Jews in mocking you, your country led by its G-d haters, or Iran. David Ha'Melek has the answer to both of these ... we'll call them observations ... of yours. I Samuel 17:43-47 says "And the Philistine said unto David, [Am] I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. "And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. "Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. "This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. "And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle [is] the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands. " You see, Anton, it doesn't matter if you have several thousand or 1.5 billion Monsters, or the amassed billions of a world that Ha'Shem has drawn as with a fishhook to Israel to fight against the Jews. It won't even be close. Ha'Shem will win the victory over you. The servants of the Most High are allowed and required to speak the truth. It might have sounded like David was mocking. What he was doing was declaring Ha'Shem Lord over Goliath and the Philistines and the battlefield. When Iran is destroyed and the people of Elam are refugees in every country, this will not be a good thing. But it will be necessary. Ha'Shem will not be rejoicing that people brought His judgement upon themselves. But He will make sure it happens. I'm not mocking you, Anton. Your window of opportunity will not be open forever, or even for much longer. How about repenting now?
27. Gracious me!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.21.11)
Another mishap at another Iranian nuclear site. Hmm. I guess the daisy chain of Iranian girls didn't work. Tragic. This is all just fluff. When is the Islamofascist Republic going to figure out that Israel is not going to let them go nuclear? And when will they figure out that Israel has the power to make that goal happen? Here is Iran's future: Bang! Kaboom! Disappear .... Good riddance to a pox upon humanity.
28. Sad Jews
Saeid ,   UK   (12.21.11)
Its sad to see so many Jews take confort in other peoples pain. There's no wonder the sympathy felt for what happended to the Jews during WWII has ran dry. We see the true face of this race. Don't know if its taught at home or if its part of DNA.
29. John
