Attack on an Israeli Embassy car in New Delhi, India

ran and Israel appear to be locked
in an assassination contest.
Israeli leaders blamed Iran for
two assassination attempts late Sunday
and early Monday — in Tbilisi, Georgia,
and in New Delhi, India. The bomb
in Tbilisi was disabled before it could
be activated, and the attack in India
wounded the wife of an Israeli diplomat
and her driver.
The attacks follow a number of
reported attempts on Israeli and Jewish
targets, most recently in Azerbaijan and
Thailand. They also follow a series of
assassinations of Iranian nuclear sci-
entists and military figures associated
with Iran — most recently on Jan. 11.
Iran has blamed Israel for being behind
those attacks. In keeping with Israeli
policy on such issues, Israeli officials
have declined to comment.

Experts warn that the attacks could
get worse.
"It's clear we're already in a situation
of escalation, but what's still not clear is
how far that's going to go',' said Michael
Adler, an expert on Iran at the Woodrow
Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.
If Iran manages to kill Israelis, it
could invite an escalated response from
Israel.
"We don't need a war of words to
descend into a war of assassinations to
descend into something much bigger':
said Joel Rubin, director of government
affairs at the Washington, D.C.-based
Ploughshares Fund, which supports
projects aimed at advancing peace.
After the bombing in India on
Monday and the foiled attack in Georgia,
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu fingered Iran.
"Iran is behind these attacks; it is
the largest exporter of terrorism in the
world," he said. "The government of

talk to my sources regularly (FBI,

national ADL office and Homeland
Security) and, although there is a
lot of talk going on, we have not heard
of any credible threats at this point:'
said Betsy Kellman, ADL-Michigan
region director. "We have been in the
process of planning a security training
day before any situation arose. Because
of the heating up of tensions in Israel
and Iran, the timing is very good.
"But the reality is, the best security

defense for any community is to take
protective measures before they are
needed," Kellman said. "Build a base-
line of security. Understand situational
awareness of your building, the people
around you, what belongs where and
be confident in your trained person-
nel. Have a building strategy and
practice it. And, of course, everyone
should follow the mantra: If you see
something, say something."
At the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit, Alan Hayman
is chair of its Community Security
Committee.
