On Tuesday, Iranian President Rouhani announced his nation’s 4th JCPOA pullback — permitted under the deal’s Articles 26 and 36 when other signatories breach their obligations.
That’s precisely what happened. The Trump regime illegally abandoned the internationally binding agreement.
Europe followed suit by breaching its JCPOA obligations. At the same time, the US and Brussels slammed Iran’s legitimate rollbacks while continuing to ignore their own obligations.
Double standards define Western and Israeli policies, a do as we demand, not as we do agenda.
For well over half a century, Israel has been nuclear armed and dangerous — its well-known open secret the official narrative conceals.
Israel’s Dimona Nuclear Research Center and other nuclear facilities are involved in developing and producing “bombs.”
Pursuit of them began under David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, ordering future MK Ehud Avriel to recruit East European Jewish scientists who could “either increase the capacity to kill masses or to cure masses. Both are important,” he stressed.
Ben-Gurion was determined to have a nuclear option against Arab nations. Noting what was accomplished in his farewell address, he said:
“I am confident…that our science can provide us with the weapons that are needed to deter our enemies from waging war against us.”
He and former prime minister Shimon Peres were the driving forces behind Israel’s development of nuclear, chemical, biological, and other banned weapons.
Secretly completed in 1964, Israel’s Dimona nuclear site was built exclusively for making nuclear weapons, not electricity generation.
By the early 1970s, Israel had advanced nuclear technology, world class scientists, and several dozen bombs in its arsenal — today likely hundreds of thermonukes with delivery capability to strike anywhere regionally.
France, South Africa, and the US were Israel’s main bomb-making collaborators.
Notably in the 1950s, the US launched Israel’s program by supplying the country with a five-megawatt/highly enriched uranium research reactor as part of Eisenhower’s “Atoms for Peace” program.
Israeli scientists were trained at US universities. They had access to domestic weapons labs. Since the early 1970s, advanced US technology transfers were made to the Jewish state, including supercomputers able to design sophisticated nuclear weapons and delivery systems.
