Israel's Mossad assassinated an Iranian scientist in a bomb attack, Time Magazine reported, citing unnamed Western intelligence sources.
The report Saturday came as Iranian state television reported that the Islamic Republic had evidence that the United States was behind the Jan. 11 attack, that it said was "planned, guided and supported" by the Central Intelligence Agency.
The Time report also intimated that Israel was behind the deaths of three other Iranian nuclear scientists in the last two years.
Okay, that was me being sarcastic, but the problem with the Jewish tradition of sarcasm is that it doesn't translate well in Cyberspace where tone of speech doesn't come through in text. That's why it makes sense that the ability for computers to detect sarcastic speech has been developed in the Jewish homeland.
I have long been a defender of the general media to pro-Israel supporters who believe the press – from the New York Times to the television networks – is biased against Israel. But I’m having a harder time of it these days.
Time Magazine released its list of the top ten satirical Twitter feeds. By "satirical," Time is referring to an intentionally faux feeds that seeks to poke fun at its subject. Topping the list is British Petroleum's fake public relations feed, which notably has five times as many followers as BP's official, verified Twitter account. [I'm sure it will only gain in popularity with this publicity.]
