Iran’s Mythical “Atom Bomb” and the Real Rogue Nuclear Weapons State: Israel

Media attention on the agreement reached in Switzerland this past weekend—which will see limitations put on Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy program—has ignored the real elephant in the room: the only rogue nuclear weapons-armed state in the Middle East which has never signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty: Israel.

There is also no doubt that the fuss over Iran’s nuclear program—and the ridiculous claims that it is making an atom bomb—are the product of the Jewish lobby in America which has an inordinate influence over American domestic and foreign policy.

This is also reflected once again in the news that American lawmakers are now trying to introduce legislation to undo the Geneva Agreement because it is too lenient on Iran—a move which exactly repeats the demand of the Israeli government and the Jewish lobby inside America.

Israeli Prime MInister Netanyahu lies before the U.N. about Iran's mythical "atom bomb."

The facts of the Iranian nuclear energy program are in the public domain, and are completely contrary to the hysterical lies which the Israelis and their lobbies have put out.

These are the facts about Iran’s nuclear program:

1. According to all the official International Atomic Energy Agency reports, Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program and has no weapons grade Enriched Uranium (EU).

2. Atomic weapons grade material requires at least 80 percent EU—the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 had this level of enrichment.

3. The highest level of EU which Iran possesses is 20 percent.

4. Contrary to the hysterical claims put out by the Israeli government, the Jewish lobby, and their compliant servants in the controlled media, there are well-established peaceful uses for 20 percent EU.

5. Light water reactors—the world’s most commonly used nuclear power generating system for electricity, typically use uranium enriched to 3 or 5 percent.

6. Twenty percent enriched uranium is used in Research Reactors—which serve as a source for neutrons.

Research reactors are non-power generating and the neutrons produced are used for neutron scattering, non-destructive testing, analysis and testing of materials and the production of radioisotopes.

The latter product-radioisotopes—are used in smoke detectors, have numerous agricultural applications and food irradiation, pest control, archeological dating and a host of medical uses which include bone imaging, diagnostic information about the functioning of a patient’s organs, radiotherapy, and literally “tens of millions of nuclear medicine procedures.”

7. The claim that Iran’s 20 percent EU has no use “except for a weapon” is therefore, an outright lie.

8. In terms of the Geneva Agreement, Iran has even offered to place all of its 20 percent EU under strict supervision.

9. All official US intelligence reports, from 2007 to the present day, confirm that Iran has no nuclear weapons program. In the 2007 National Intelligence Estimate, the Director of National Intelligence of the United States assessed that Iran had ended all “nuclear weapon design and weaponization work” in 2003.

This was confirmed in 2012, when a new report, which “represents the consensus of 16 US intelligence agencies,” indicated that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program.

In summary then, there is absolutely no evidence that Iran either has a nuclear weapon, is busy building one, or even has an intention or capability to build one.

Why then, observers might well ask, the fuss?

The answer can be found in the reaction to the Geneva deal by the former head of Israeli Military Intelligence and now director of the Israeli “Institute for National Security Studies” think tank, Amos Yadlin.

He was quoted by the Times of Israel as saying that the real objective of Israel is the destruction of Iran, no matter what:

 “The fall of this regime before it gets the bomb should be our objective,” Yadlin was quoted as saying.

In other words, the reason for “American” hostility towards Iran is not based on the clearly mythical “atom bomb” lies, but simply because Israel regards Iran as an enemy.

Because the Jewish lobby is so powerful in America, this hostility towards Iran is therefore reflected in “American” foreign policy—in exactly the same way that the US was dragged into the Iraq War on behalf of Israel, and exactly the same reason why America was attacked on September 11, 2001.

Final evidence that a “fear of nuclear weapons” is just an excuse for hostility towards Iran, comes with the reality that the only nuclear-weapon armed state in the Middle East is Israel.

The Jewish state is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty—unlike Iran—and has dozens of nuclear weapons at is Dimona facility in the Negev desert.

Mordechai Vanunu, a former Israeli nuclear technician, provided explicit details and photographs to the London Sunday Times of Israel’s nuclear weapons program in which he had been employed for nine years. (Vanunu, who broke with Judaism, was subsequently kidnapped by the Israeli Secret Service in Italy, and spent 18 years in jail in Israel.)

According to the Federation of American Scientists, “[B]ased on plausible upper and lower bounds of the operating practices at the reactor, Israel could have thus produced enough plutonium for at least 100 nuclear weapons, but probably not significantly more than 200 weapons.”

If the spread of nuclear weapons was the only reason America wanted to stop Iran’s nuclear program, then there should in theory be sanctions and opprobrium over Israel’s already existing stockpile. But there is none—and the controlled media play their part in ignoring and even suppressing information about the real rogue nuclear state in the Middle East.

Unlike Iran, Israel has actually also threatened Europe with nuclear attack.

In the book, The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy, by Seymour Hersh, it was revealed that Israeli bombers  with nuclear warheads would be used to strike European capital cities if Israel ever fell.

The “Samson Option” of the book’s title refers to the biblical Jewish figure Samson, who pulled down the roof on his enemies after being blinded.

This “Samson option” was explained in public by Martin Van Creveld, the Jewish professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, this way:

“We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force.

“Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”

The reasoning is of course stupefying: what type of illogical hatred would motivate Jews to want to nuke European cities if Arabs overran Israel?

Al of this is ignored and covered-up by the controlled media in its presentation of the Iranian nuclear issue—but, thanks to the Internet, their ability to censor the news has broken down.

Everyone can see the elephant in the room—and it is obvious who and what it is.
