What do I think? I think I'm not going to be gullible this time around. Knowing what lengths the government will go to at times to further a certain agenda, I will take absolutely NOTHING at face value, and will assume that an ulterior motive exists. It's sad when your government is what pushes you to that belief. I don't care if Iran were developing a nuke, as that wouldn't change the fact that Israel is crazy. Like I've said before...How many Arab Muslims are living in Israel, and how many Jews are living in Iran? I don't think Iran is who we need to be worrying about.
In recent years, the Jewish population of Iran was estimated by most sources to be 25,000, though estimates varied, with some as low as 17,000 and as high as 40,000. However, a census in August 2012 revealed that there were only 8,756 Jews still living in Iran. Notable population centers include Tehran, Isfahan (1,200), and Shiraz. Historically, Jews maintained a presence in many more Iranian cities. Jews are protected in the Iranian constitution and seat is reserved for a Jew in the Majlis. Iran hosts the largest Jewish population of any Muslim-majority country. After Israel, it is home to the second-largest Jewish population in the Middle East.
The largest group of Persian Jews is found in Israel. As of 2007, Israel is home to just over 47,000 Iranian-born Jews and roughly 87,000 Israeli-born Jews with fathers born in Iran. While these numbers add up to about 135,000, when Israelis with more distant or solely maternal Iranian roots are included the total number of Persian Jews in Israel is estimated to be between 200,000-250,000.
According to Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics, the Arab population in 2010 was estimated at 1,573,000, representing 20.4% of the country's population. The majority of these identify themselves as Arab or Palestinian by nationality and Israeli by citizenship. Many have family ties to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as well as to Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Negev Bedouins tend to identify more as Israelis than other Arab citizens of Israel.
Outside of the Bedouin population, traditionally settled communities of Muslim Arabs comprise about 70% of the Arab population in Israel.
Originally posted by live2beknownSo, could this be proof that Iran is actually making a Nuke after all, and all you people that think Iran is doing all this for peaceful purposes are wrong? So everyone that thinks Israel is "Crazy" or a terrorist country is pretty much just got slapped in the face..Soo. If this is true news, it could be a big hit on Iran, and also if true..Russia and China wont be backing Iran anymore..I would love to see the Video of the "secret" stuff inside Iran's nuclear facilities..and any pics if they do release any..
Anyways, What do you guys think?
As I said, the evidence is piling up about Iran making a nuke.. I never really doubted it from the beginning..I was just waiting for enough "proof" to convince people other wise, and I'm sure Israel and US are in the same boat, but this just brought it to a whole new level..

DEBKA is a military Israeli website! Sounds like more propoganda to me..........Pics of the documents or it didn't happen......
Although neutron bombs are commonly believed to "leave the infrastructure intact", current designs have explosive yields in the kiloton range, the detonation of which would cause considerable destruction through blast and heat effects.
