November 27, 2020 — The high-ranking Iranian nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, named by the West as leading the Islamic Republic’s military nuclear program until its disbanding in the early 2000s, has been assassinated in an ambush near Tehran.
What you just have read is written by the media in various ways but they all say the same. However, the paragraph (example is from Al Jazeera) misses a very important detail, namely why was that program disbanded?
The Iranian Revolution was a series of events that culminated in the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty under Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and the replacement of his government with an Islamic republic under the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, a leader of one of the factions in the revolution. It was Khomeini who ordered the disbanding of Iran’s entire nuclear program. But that was not in 2000!
Following the 1979 Revolution, most of the international nuclear cooperation with Iran was cut off. Kraftwerk Union stopped working at the Bushehr nuclear project in January 1979, with one reactor 50 per cent complete, and the other reactor 85 per cent complete, and they fully withdrew from the project in July 1979. Khomeini ordered the disbanding of the entire program because he found it un-Islamic.
But, how became Iran nuclear and the Israelis a nuclear power?
In July 1968, Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and ratified it. It went into effect on March 5, 1970. Under the rule of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, plans were made to construct up to 20 nuclear power stations across the country with U.S. support and backing.
However, the Israelis were much earlier in taking part of the U.S. Atoms for Peace framework. In July 1955, the Israelis signed the same peaceful nuclear cooperation agreement with the United States, which allowed the U.S., two years later, to assist the Israelis with the construction of a small research reactor in Nachal Soreq. But, the Israelis were also building a second nuclear plant … in secret and near Dimona in the Negev Desert.
Why were the Israelis building a second nuclear plant but in secret?
In 1939, the United States launched a secret project to develop a nuclear bomb, which then was the real introduction of nuclear science but for military use. That project is known the Manhattan Project and was led by the United States with the support of the United Kingdom (which initiated the original Tube Alloys project) and Canada.
The Polish Zionist migrant David Ben Gurion became interested and reacted by saying:
“What Einstein, Oppenheimer, and Teller,
the three of them are Jews, made for the United States,
could also be done by scientists* in Israel,
for their own people”.
But, the Manhattan Project was for military use. So, Ben Gurion wanted the same thing done. His defense “to prevent a second Holocaust from happening” illustrates that. Golda Meir, Ben Gurion’s successor, added another lie: “it would be a texile mill”
That 2nd, secretly build nuclear plant near Dimona was and still is for the same purpose as the Manhattan Project by US, Canada and UK.
Netanyahu has changed the name of the nuclear weapon production plant by naming it after Shimon Perez. The same Simon Perez who lied to the Americans about Dimona
And then we have President Barack Obama who, during his last days in office, ordered the disclosure of the whole secret archive 1958- 1970 about the Israeli nuclear weapons program. Obama decided to disclose the whole archive as his last response to Netanyahu’s unstoppable obstruction of the peace talks process. The talks began in 2012 but ended up in the 2014 Gaza War.
There is no reason to build in secret unless you have militarized intention in mind. That was exactly what Ben Gurion had in mind. The Israelis frankly confirmed their real intention by lying about Dimona as written earlier in this article. They even confirmed what their real intention was by fooling and obstructing American inspectors send to Dimona by President Eisenhower.
History have showed that the Israelis have had at least a decade of advantage because of Khomeini’s rulership until his death on June 3, 1989. So, it is here that the IranDeal is a bad deal, not any sort of Trumpian rhetoric nor anything else behind the JCPOA idea.
