U.S. security officials are concerned about a potential war of terror between Israel and Iran, and the affects on other countries. ABC News reported that Israeli officials said, "that the level of personal security on high-ranking Embassy officials as well as other, lower profile officials in the U.S. is at its highest in at least five years."
Several years ago, five nuclear scientists were killed in Iran, and Iran alleges that Israeli agents were behind the killings. Now, Iran may be back for revenge. The Iranian scientists were killed by "sticky bombs" and now this past Monday, similar bombs were put on cars in Georgia and India. The bombs were targeted to vehicles Israeli Emabassy personnel were using while traveling.
The attacks have not only been on Israeli officials, U.S. charged that Iran has recently attempted to kill a Saudi Arabian ambassador working in the U.S. and The New York Times says that Israel is charging Iran on similar accounts, "Israel has said that Iran has planned to attack its citizens in various countries, but that those plots were stopped."
The Washington Post reported that the battle may result in bigger problems as, "Israel has threatened military strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities." Iran has continually denied responsibility and is still blaming Israel for the death of their scientists.
Now countries like the U.S. are holding their breath, waiting to see which country will make the next move. Many countries are worried about the Iranian threat of nuclear development, and threat of another world war. The New York Times also reports that the U.S. and Europe have been struggling to put sanctions on Iran's nuclear development, but that, "Iran has defended its nuclear program as peaceful and has defiantly pursued uranium enrichment through years of international pressure and sanctions."
Americans are most worried about the threat to the Jewish population and Israeli representatives in the U.S. As of now security officials are assuring that there has been no specific intelligence information about possible attacks on the U.S., but that if there are, they will be ready.
