Report: Iran nuclear scientist killed in car bomb blast

 A nuclear scientist was killed in a blast in Tehran on Wednesday morning, an Iranian news agency reported. It's the latest in a string of attacks that Iran has blamed on Israel.

A motorcyclist placed a magnetic bomb under Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan's Peugeot 405, the state-run IRNA news agency said. The blast also wounded two others, IRNA said.

State television channel Press TV reported later Wednesday that Roshan's driver, named as Reza Qashqaei, had died in a hospital from his injuries.

Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani condemned the attack and said it would not undermine Iran's resolve. "This is not the first time that arrogant powers adopt such futile measures," he said, according to Press TV.

    Iran's people already enjoy American style discos. When America occupies Iran, the Iranian people will be set free to be like US. It's what they want. They are as tired of being pushed around by false religious leaders as we are.

    Iranians mostly can't stand their government full of religious zealots telling them how to behave in their own bedrooms. If an Iranian citizen wants to marry his dog, who is the Koran to tell them it's wrong.

    He's not dead...kidnapped by Somali Pirates who set off the bomb to cover thier escape...pirates were paid by two other local Nuke powers who don't want to expand the club... 'cause if he was blown up ANYWHERE in the middle east it would be listed as "natural causes". That ends my rant.

    Look up the USS Liberty, the Lavon Afair, the speeches by Dr. Alan Sabrosky and Benjamin Freedman. In the last several years the Israeli Government Jews and the US government Jews have stated that they already have agents in Iran with the instructions to kill professors, Scientists and other Iraninan civilian and government individuals. They have said so openly. That was reported by several news organizations. The so called "UN nuclear inspectors" find out who are the top scientists and give that information to Mossad, directly and indirectly. The Mossad does the rest.
