The 'Guardian' reports:
"Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of being behind twin attacks on Israeli targets in India and Georgia on Monday in a move likely to further escalate tensions between the two countries and increase international pressure on the Iranian regime." 
 And then goes on to add that:
"Iran described the accusations as "sheer lies". Mehdi Nabizadeh, Iran's ambassador to Delhi, was quoted as saying by IRNA: "Any terrorist attack is condemned [by Iran] and we strongly reject the untrue comments by an Israeli official. These accusations are untrue and sheer lies, like previous times."

Moreover, with the Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, every bit as "certain" the Prime Minister as to who is behind the attacks, we mind start to worry about this, latest, development, after all according to Lieberman, Israel knows  "exactly who is responsible for the attack and who planned it, and we're not going to take it lying down." And, the proof that Iran is behind the attacks? Well according to 'Haaretz':  "The incidents on Monday come one day after the fourth anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah's deputy leader, Imad Mughniyah, a killing the Islamist organization blames on Israel."  Nevertheless, pretexts, incidents, must, and will, be found no matter how absurd those pretexts are.

However, with the chances of a multi-sided civil war in Syria "with those groups that are being armed covertly by NATO via Turkey and Qatar having an advantage in hardware," increasing by the hour, and with that coming conflict leaving Iran bereft of its potential ally on the eve of an Iraeli attack,  even the most myopic of us should not only be suspicious when Israel starts to point the finger after a failed bomb attack in New Delhi and neutralized device in Tblissi, but also aware of who the real criminals are.

It is important that we are for with Robert Frisk reporting that the conflict in Syria has already spilled over into Lebanon,and with Israel and the West's continued "collective delusion of grandeur (and) illusion of the power to make reality ” we could very well be on course for a conflict that could indeed put us on the road to Armageddon (ibid).
