An attack on a bus in Bulgaria which killed five Israelis was "perpetrated by Hezbollah, Iran's leading terrorist proxy," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday.
He urged world powers to expose Iran as "the premier terrorist-supporting state that it is," following Wednesday's apparent suicide attack. Iran denies israel's claims.
The bus bombing, which claimed the lives of five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, was likely carried out by a male suicide attacker with a fake Michigan driver's license, Bulgaria's interior minister said Thursday.
Israel was quick to point the finger at Iran or an Islamist militant group over the attack, which occurred Wednesday in a parking lot outside Burgas Airport in Bulgaria. Tensions between Israelis and Tehran have been escalating in recent months.

But the Iranian embassy in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, dismissed Israeli suggestions that Tehran was involved as "unsubstantiated" and said the claim was politically motivated.
Suicide bombing is a Sunni tactic, not Shiite. I'm skeptical of attributing this to Shiite Hezbollah. My understanding is that in Shiite theology the belive the corporal body is God's, and they are merely a steward of it while on earth, so they cannot desecrate it with e.g. tattoos and ... suicide bombing. Now, some Shiite criminals and military personnel do violate this and get tattoos, but it's exceptional. I think in the entire Iraq war there was not one instance of a Shiite suicide bomber. Explosively Formed penetrators, IEDs, Katushya rockets yes, but never a suicide bombing. Of course, both Shiite and Sunnis hate jews, so it wouldn't be hard for a Shiite group to find a Sunni dupe.
suicide bombing was also a kamikazee thing – bombing techniques and methods of delivering an explosion is directly related to nationality/religion – care to take us through the recent bomb explosion in Syria – what nation do you think achieved this one?
Damn that guy had red hair and a snow white tan. Must be a kid from the U.S that got brainwashed into becoming a radical Muslim. What a loser. Go kill yourself and take a whole bunch of innocent people and put them in a grave. What is going through the mind of people like that? Just pure Evil act.
Money is the root of all evil today.
Looks like a lesbean to me. Them Lesbeans always up to mischief.
Suicide bombing = Cowardice of the worst kind.
Since all Israelis have divine providence on their side and have never killed or wounded any innocent civilians when blowing up person(s) they deem threats
or assassinating men and women in foreign nations, then of course this bombing is way more horrific thanthe deaths ofa few palestinian men women and children.
Of course Netanyahu would blame Iranians, that serves his agenda. Iran blames Israel for assassinating their scientists and financing,arming a dissident group to carry out attacks in Iran.
Both sides would of course deny any involvement.
Yes @ Hide Behind you cannot equated the deaths of palestinian women and children with those of Israelis. That is blasphemy.
But tacos are still yummy.
What a crock of horse sh it. This was most likely a false flag op carried out by mossad, the israeli s are the largest active terrorist state in that region.
To clarify, they,mossad, would do this for the sole purpose of blaming iran
The state terrorism perpetrated routinely by the state of Israel is their divine right who are we puny humans to call it terrorism.
Who can stand that garbage served up by Christian Trash?
Attractive people don't eat that kind of crap.
Poor, poor Iran, and Hezbollah, getting blamed for this. Such peaceful people who would never do anything wrong. It's all Israel. And the CIA. And those shadowy organizations that you all like to ramble on about on the internet. But not poor, misunderstood Iran and Hezbollah. It CAN'T be them.
Good call, Steve. Bush is an idiot. Blaming him for stuff is like blaming a two year old for silniplg ice-cream. The blame for almost everything Bush-related can be sheeted home to the fools that elected him. He should never have been elected in the first place.
