News the HP Doesn't Cover: Iran on Bulgaria Attack

Good detectives (and the world's greatest, Batman) don't believe in coincidences. I'm not sure if I do. But when I read an article like this, it makes me wonder:

Iran's UN envoy accused Israel on Wednesday of plotting and carrying out a suicide attack on a bus in Bulgaria a week ago in which five Israeli tourists were killed.

A suicide bomber blew up the bus in a car park at Burgas airport, a popular gateway for tourists visiting Bulgaria's Black Sea coast, killing himself, the Israeli tourists and the Bulgarian bus driver and wounding more than 30 people.

Israel has accused Iran and the Lebanese Islamist group Hezbollah of the bombing. Iran has denied the accusations.

"It's amazing that just a few minutes after the terrorist attack, Israeli officials announced that Iran was behind it," Iran's UN Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee told a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East.

"We have never and will not engage in such a despicable attempt on ... innocent people.

"Such terrorist operation could only be planned and carried out by the same regime whose short history is full of state terrorism operations and assassinations aimed implicating others for narrow political gains," Khazaee said.

"I could provide ... many examples showing that this regime killed its own citizens and innocent Jewish people during the last couple of decades."

 So, here's a question for the readers. Is it just a coincidence that this rhetoric from Iran just happens to match the kind of rhetoric posted by the HPers on the various Bulgaria threads? Or is it something else?


  1. Ummm...Iran says the sky is blue. Other people say the sky is blue. Therefore it is a conspiracy.

  2. Coincidence? Hardly. These people all swim in the same gutter, and drink from the same sewer.
