One Month Since 43rd Anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy Assassination

Last month, June 6th to be exact, marked the anniversary of the assassination of New York Senator and Presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy. It has been 43 years.

43rd Anniversary to Robert F. Kennnedy's AssassinationBobby Kennedy was shot by a 24-year-old Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, three times in the face with a .22-caliber rifle. He died 26 hours later in the hospital. Sirhan said his was a political motivation protesting Senator Kennedy’s support for Israel during the Six-Day War. The same day he passed away, the Los Angeles Times reported the story disclosing the Palestinian’s motives writing:

“When the Jordanian nationalist, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, allegedly shot Kennedy, ostensibly because of the senator’s advocacy of U.S. support for Israel, the crime with which he was charged was in essence another manifestation of the centuries-old hatred between Arab and Jew.”

An original conviction resulting in the death penalty was eventually changed to life imprisonment. Today, Sirhan is confined at Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, California. He lives in a cell in solitary confinement.

On Tuesday, Iran’s Intelligence Ministry exhibited computers, weapons and secret equipment publicly, which were allegedly used in the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist, Masoud Ali Mohammadi, last year. According to the Islamic Republic, the computer used by the assassins, was encrypted so they could contact their operators while staying outside the country.

On Monday, the ayatollahs’ regime claimed they arrested more than 10 people on suspicion of involvement in the murder of the senior physician last year in Tehran, when a booby-trapped motorcycle was planted near his home.

Iranian Intelligence Minister, Heidar Moslehi, assembled a press conference on Tuesday, announcing the discovery and presenting to reporters the equipment which Mossad allegedly gave to the secret agents.

Along with the computer, gun, videos and pictures the minister displayed:

“Spying equipment designed to make videos and pictures, a radio transmitter, a box with documents and equipment to forge documents.”

Moslehi said:

“We obtained good intelligence and managed to penetrate into the intelligence of this regime, on order to locate people who are linked to the Zionist regime…”

On Monday evening, Iran’s state-controlled television network broadcasted an interview with 28-year-old, Majid Jamali Fash, one of the key suspects arrested for having ties to the spying network, in which Fash said he went to Tel Aviv to meet with a number of senior IDF officers. He did not reveal the exact date of the visit, yet he said:

“I received sabotage training…I was trained how to follow and avoid being followed, as well as how to attach a bomb underneath a vehicle.”
