|US analysts working for a company called Stratfor have reported that they believe a top Iranian nuclear research scientist was assassinated by the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. Ardeshir Hassanpour worked at the Isfahan nuclear plant, which produces uranium-hexafluoride gas for enrichment at the Natanz facility. He died at the age of 44 last month, the official cause of death being gas poisoning. |
Quote: "There is precedent for Mossad using assassination to interfere with efforts of its neighbors to acquire nuclear weapons. It is believed by intelligence experts that three top scientists in Iraq's nuclear program were killed by Mossad before Israel launched the successful 1981 air strike that crippled the Osirak nuclear reactor. In 1980, Yahya al-Meshad was found stabbed and bludgeoned to death in his Paris hotel room after arriving in France to test fuel for the reactor. Over the next several months, two other Iraqi nuclear scientists died after being poisoned.
Meanwhile, Iran has stated it plans to continue its Uranium enrichment programme, despite the threat of sanctions from the UN Security Council. Iran is planning to install up to 3000 Uranium centrifuges at its plant in Natanz, which would provide the nation with enough material to build a nuclear weapon in around a year. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has also said that he plans to make a special announcement on February 11th regarding supposed technological advancements, including establishing Iran's "right" to access nuclear technology, and the development of a cure for AIDS.
Quote: ""The Iranian nation will celebrate stabilization and establishment of its nuclear rights during the Ten-Day Dawn, (sic)" Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. The "ten-day dawn" in early February marks the date of the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979. "When a nation decides to stand on its own feet to climb up the peaks, God helps it and that nation will embrace victory," Ahmadinejad said.
When a nation sets itself against the God of Israel, that nation is destined for destruction. Next month the Jewish nation will mark the feast of Purim, a remembrance of the time God delivered the Jews from their Persian enemy and that wicked Haman. And wicked Ahmadinejad may be building the gallows on which he himself will be hanged.
