Bomb kills top Hezbollah commanderSwissinfo -Moughniyah is thought to have been commander of Islamic Jihad, a shadowy pro-Iranian group which emerged in Lebanon in the early 1980s…

A LIST OF ATTACKS

Moughniyah was implicated in the 1983 bombings of the U.S. embassy and U.S. Marine and French peacekeeping barracks in Beirut, which killed over 350 people, as well as the kidnapping of Westerners in Lebanon in the 1980s.
Israel accuses Moughniyah of planning the 1994 bombing of a Jewish centre in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people and of involvement in a 1992 bombing of the Israeli embassy in the Argentine capital that killed 28.
The United States indicted him for his role in planning and participating in the June 14, 1985, hijacking of a U.S. TWA airliner and the killing of an American passenger.
“The world is a better place without this man in it. He was a cold-blooded killer, a mass-murderer and a terrorist responsible for countless innocent lives lost,” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.
“One way or another he was brought to justice,” he said.
Iran blamed Israel for his assassination. Syria described it as a “terrorist attack”.
Several Palestinian and Lebanese allies of Hezbollah called on the group to avenge Moughniyah’s death. Hezbollah has only said its conflict with Israel was “a very long one”.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the group that has a strong political and military force in Lebanon, will address the crowd at the funeral via a video link.
On Wednesday, Moughniyah’s coffin, draped in a Hezbollah flag and flanked by four men in military uniform, was laid in a hall where his family and the group’s leaders received condolences.
Moughniyah is thought to have been commander of Islamic Jihad, a shadowy pro-Iranian group which emerged in Lebanon in the early 1980s and was believed to be linked to Hezbollah.
Islamic Jihad kidnapped several Western hostages, including Americans, in Beirut in the mid 1980s. The group killed some of its captives and exchanged others for U.S. weapons to Iran in what was later known as the Iran-Contra scandal. Among those killed was the CIA’s station chief.
Moughniyah’s brother was killed in a car bomb in Beirut in 1994. Reports at the time suggested Imad had been the target. Moughniyah had spent much of the 1990s in Iran.http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/news/international/Bomb_kills_top_Hezbollah_commander.html?siteSect=143&sid=8737038&cKey=1202934488000&ty=ti

Hitting Iran Where It Hurts
Tough new U.S. economic sanctions raise tensions with Iran—and talk of war

By Thomas Omestad
Posted October 25, 2007
In an aggressive move to ratchet up pressure on Iran, the Bush administration today announced the toughest sanctions to date on Iran for its nuclear programs and for what U.S. officials say is crucial support of anti-U.S. militants operating in Iraq. The primary targets of the new sanctions are the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, its Quds Force foreign-operations unit, and the Iranian Defense Ministry itself.
