New nuclear report on Iran angers Israel

Israel's Foreign Ministry says the UN nuclear watchdog cannot be trusted to monitor the Iranian program and the international community should act independently to stop Iran.

"These findings demonstrate that the international community, no more than Israel, cannot place its trust in the IAEA monitoring in Iran," the ministry said in a statement Sunday after the UN agency released its latest report on Iran.


Wow, if this is correct then Israel is moving in a very opposite direction that the US is. This could prove to strain Israeli-American ties more than they already have been.


Officials in Tel Aviv have long strived to portray Iran as a regime hell-bent on a nuclear war and have attempted to rally support for tough measures, including the use of military force, to stop the country's program.

"What is needed from the international community is immediate and determined action to ensure that Iran will not be able to produce nuclear weapons," the Israeli ministry said.

"The weakness currently displayed by the international community allows a country like North Korea to pursue a policy of defiance, and Iran is an attentive student of this policy."

The statement, however, failed to notice that North Korea has withdrawn from the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) with weaponization intentions and has declared that it possesses nuclear arsenal.


Strange how Iranian and Israeli media keep throwing the ball back and forth. This particular example fits nicely. In my opinion Iran should be able to protect itself from Political and Military pressure as much as the next industrialized nation has the right to.

I don't think anybody is stupid enough to use Nuclear weapons in this day and age, even if the world is a powder keg. I don't think it will ever escalate to Nuclear warfare.

Any Thoughts?

This falls under the category of "Not Our Problem".

If Israel and Iran want to nuke duke it out, by all means let them. Hell, it would solve quite a few problems.

Our only concern should be which way the winds carry the fallout and if we need to evac Iraq.

What are you saying? Not our problem.

You do know that one Nuclear explosion would effect people THOUSANDS of kilomters in every direction depending on the wind don't you?

It would be our problem, and Europe's problem, and everybody's problem.

Wow, what a ridiculously closed minded statement.

So Isreal is aloud to go about nuking and pillaging other nations who have been oppressed for decades and only want the ability to govern themselves without international pressure?

Yeah that sounds real diplomatic like. Ridiculous the way some people think these days.

A very high nuclear yield detonation would have the ability to affect people thousands of kilometers away. A low yield detonation would not.

Iran does not have that capability. Very few nations do, Iran isnt one of them.

Given that the jet stream would carry any fallout to the east, Europe would have nothing to worry about in regards to a nuclear detonation in Israel, as the wind patterns are not going to reverse themselves and carry the fallout to the northwest.

There is no evidence to back up your statement in regards to what kind of weapons Iran has at their disposal.

A nuclear detonation is a nuclear detonation, whether it would go to Europe or to Russia or wherever is irrelevant. The fact is it would affect more than just Israel or Iran.

There are far too many consequences both moral and political that make this scenario highly improbable.

Besides Iran has the right to defend itself.

Every single US intelligence agency has stated that Iran does not have, nor is it currently capable of making Weapons Grade Nuclear material. Israel is trying to hype ghosts that do not exist.

Iran does have a nuclear power generation program that is perfectly legal. Iran has signed the Nuclear Non proliferation treaty, unlike Israel, Pakistan, and North Korea. Israel is in violation of international laws regarding nuclear weapons as they sold US nuclear weapon technology to the Chinese.

There is no reason to attack Iran. Iran is not threatening war against Israel, it is Israel that is threatening a military attack. The spiritual leaders of Iran have affirmed that nuclear weapons are against Islam, and that they must not be built. Thus far there is no evidence that Iran is trying to make nuclear weapons. It is all talk and hype, much like the phony Weapons of Mass Destruction that Saddam was supposed to have. Do not be fooled. Israel is the danger, not Iran, as it is Israel that is pushing for war.

Attack would imply using Nuclear weapons since Israel has already stated they use them if necessary. Iran has never made the claim to use them if they acquired them.

The US-Israeli propaganda machine is in full swing here, and things are going to get dicey. Especially with the Lebanese elections almost over.

Not our problem....lets think about this now, so you don't mind paying $15-$20 a Gallon for Gas, which of course would increase the costs for everything we buy !

Do you also think for just one second that Radical islam is not going to Blame the U.S anyway regardless if we involved or not!

Let me ask you this, what if one the drug cartels succeeded in taking complete control of Mexico (could and may happen) and lets say they allied them self with a communist country like Cuba. Now lets say some other county much more advanced and ambitious decided to raise the stakes by sending some nukes over to them. The US would have quite a different outlook on things--oh wait a minute that was the Cuban Missile Crisis, one of the most intense standoffs in world history. My point is we dont have a nuclear equipped nation a couple hundred miles away that has blatantly came out and said the wish to see our country turned to ash. If we did I dont think we would be so quick to judge the Israelis. Lets see somebody put Akmoodinsh-whatever in his place, 6 (hopefully many more) feet in the ground!
