This past week terrorist events focused on two attacks against Israeli targets, one in New Delhi, India, and the other in Tbilisi, Georgia. They were carried out simultaneously, the day after the anniversary of the death of Imad Mughniyeh, a senior Hezbollah operative killed on February 12, 2008. The Israeli prime minister accused Iran and Hezbollah of responsibility for the attacks, following those in Azerbaijan and Thailand.
Ismail Haniya's second round of visits to Arab-Muslim countries was highlighted by his tour of Iran, where he met with the Iranian leadership. He repeatedly stated that Hamas would never recognize the State of Israel, that the movement sought to establish a Palestinian state on all of Palestine and that the "resistance" (i.e., the path of terrorism) was the Palestinian people's strategy of choice. Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei said that Iran stood beside the "resistance" and called for it to continue.
