Re Alan Gross: I wonder if the AP report will now really put his life at risk and Obama administration will be forced to back away from supporting him.

MethanP says:

Iran has been prepairing more than 30 years for this. It’s just the beginning. It’s going to get bloody. As other attacks against Jews world wide has repeatedly shown (Argentina etc) few will care about a few Jews.
