Yes...under the NPT...Iran has the right to enrich Uranium...to Reactor Grade ONLY. Not to Weapons Grade.
Since Iran can purchase Reactor Grade Uranium for a tiny fraction of the money that it takes to build over 10,000 centrifuges and since using this many centrifuges is not consistent with enriching Uranium to Reactor Grade...it is obvious of their use.
I agree that Iran has not currently built a Bomb but then it is the Weapons Grade Fuel that is hard to get not the actual design of an old style Fission Bomb.
As far as the Wipe Israel off the map...Irans Leader has infact said this and has been quoted as saying it. On another post several ATS Members listed many sources of his quoted words.
But there is no getting away from certain realities. Iran is a threat...there is no doubt in the vast majority of World Leaders as well as the countries in the Middle East. The problems that need adressing are about miscommunication of intent.
Please stop arguing for Iran and Ahmadenejad having nuclear capability because other countries do.

Uh...I have PROVED that Iran has broken the NPT.
Iran itself has admitted to building secret underground Nuclear Facilities.
Iran has kicked out International Nuiclear Site observers.
Iran has built 10,000 unsanctioned...unwatched and at one time secret Centrifuges.
You ca believe whatever you wish but to think that Iran is some type of victim in all this is laughable.

The U.S. State Department considers Iran the world's "most active state sponsor of terrorism." U.S. officials say Iran provides funding, weapons, training, and sanctuary to numerous terrorist groups--most notably in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lebanon--posing a security concern to the international community. Iran's declarations that it has successfully enriched uranium and developed new missile technology have heightened alarm in the United States and other countries that the Islamic Republic might transfer weapons of mass destruction (PDF) to militants or armed groups. Iran's leaders, who deny allegations they support terrorism (DerSpiegel), assert their rights under an international treaty to pursue nuclear power and insist their efforts are for peaceful purposes. But the international community remains unconvinced, imposing a growing list of sanctions against Tehran. Financial pressure has been applied by the UN Security Council, the European Union, international financial bodies, and a number of individual countries, including the United States.

Again North Korea has not signed the NPT. Iran did because if it did not it would not have been allowed to purchase Russian Nuclear Tech. and purchase Russian Reactor Fuel.
