An American military analyst says the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, organized the attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, Press TV reports.
Israeli forces produced the anti-Islam film, released it and led the attacks against the US consulate in Benghazi, Gordon Duff said in an interview with Press TV on Friday.
US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed on September 11, when rocket-propelled grenades were fired on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city.
The incident took place while a group of people held a demonstration against an anti-Islam movie produced in the United States.
"The attacks against the US consulate in Benghazi were, we believe, stimulated, paid for and organized by Israel's Mossad and they had nothing to do [with the Libyan people]," he added.Referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Thursday, Duff argued that "it is unusual hearing someone as radical and extremist as Netanyahu talk about others."
In his speech, Netanyahu described the popular Arab movements promoting change in the oppressive leadership structures in the Middle East as medieval.
"The medieval forces of radical Islam...seek supremacy over all Muslims...they want to extinguish freedom," Netanyahu was quoted as saying. "They want to end the modern world."
"All that Netanyahu has managed to convince is he has convinced the people of the United States that he is attempting to interfere in our election; we resent it," Duff noted.
