Video: Israeli Commercial Spoofs Mossad Bombing Iran Nuke Plant
Not everyone is taking the Iranian nuclear threat seriously.
Days after Iran accused Israeli Mossad agents of assassinating another nuclear scientist in Tehran, an Israeli company posted a video commercial, spoofing a supposed Mossad operative in Iran.
The clip shows recognizable [to Israelis] TV stars of an Israeli show that is shown on HOT cable TV. The four are notified that someone is watching their show far off in Iran and, disguised as Muslim women, they set out to check it out. After mentioning that they have a problem finding Kosher food in Iran, the TV characters find a Mossad agent who is in Iran on undercover duty, in a cafe overlooking the Iranian nuclear plant.
The agent, who could be seen by some as resembling Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, explains that he has a tablet with which he watches episodes of their show.
As one of the disguised Israelis holds on to the tablet and asks about one of the applications, he presses on it - it is understood that the tablet has operative capabilities - and the nuclear plant explodes in front of their eyes.
"What?", says the Israeli who just caused a very significant explosion, "It's just another mysterious explosion in Iran."
The commercial has not gone unnoticed by news agencies. China Central TV’s Israeli correspondent posted it at the end of her report on the assassination of the nuclear scientist, noticing that it “was meant to be funny, but there is no ignoring the raw reality and timing of this ad – or the final message.”
