REUTERS – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday (July 4) called on Europe to take a harsher stance against Iran after an Iranian diplomat was arrested for involvement in plotting a bomb attack in France.

The attack, Netanyahu said, was being planned by Iran the same week that the country’s president was in Europe hoping to arrange economic benefits to make up for the damage caused by new U.S. sanctions over its nuclear program.

France and Germany will send two men, including the Iranian diplomat, to Belgium to face accusations that they were involved in the plot to bomb an Iranian opposition rally on the outskirts of Paris.

Iran has said it had nothing to do with the plot, which is called a “false flag” operation staged by figures within the opposition group itself.
