Israel forced to switch to military operations against Iran's nuclear program


Two days ago, an explosion occurred at the Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz. No one was hurt, but uranium enrichment work was suspended. It did not take long to search for the guilty. According to The New York Times, the explosion was orchestrated by Israeli intelligence services. The "Jewish trace" was also confirmed by the Israeli Jerusalem Post, which stated that Mossad could be involved in the attack. Why, unlike last year's assassination of leading Iranian nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, is the Israeli intelligence service not even trying to hide their possible involvement?


The root of the problem lies in the relationship between Iran and Israel, as well as their "nuclear" status. These countries, neighbors in the Middle East, are mortal enemies. They do not have a common border, so the IDF can only inflict airstrikes, and Israeli planes will first have to cover almost XNUMX kilometers through other countries. Tehran resolves the issue differently, consistently trying to move its military infrastructure closer to the enemy, deploying it on the territory of Syria and Lebanon, while acting through a "proxy". Complicating the situation is that the Jewish state secretly, in violation of all international norms, created a nuclear arsenal, the presence of which does not confirm, but does not deny. The position of Tel Aviv at one time on this issue sounded like this:

We do not have nuclear weapons, but if necessary, we will use them.

Is it any wonder that Iran is interested in developing its own nuclear weapons to establish military parity with its main enemy in the Middle East? Strictly speaking, the Islamic Republic has long been a member of the nuclear club. Back in 1957, she signed a cooperation agreement with the United States called Atoms for Peace. Iran has been a member of the IAEA since the very founding of this organization. In 1963, he joined the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, but the presence of a regional adversary with a nuclear arsenal forces Iran to seek to acquire its own. In response, Israel is pursuing what Tehran calls "nuclear terror" against the Iranian nuclear program.

In 2007, under strange circumstances, the famous Iranian nuclear physicist Ardeshir Hasanpour was gassed. Even then, the name of the Israeli special service "Mossad" was announced. In 2010, physics professor Masoud Ali Mohammadi was killed by a bomb explosion. In the same year, there were two more explosions under the cars of Iranian scientists Majid Shahriari and Fereydun Abbasi Davani, the first was killed, and the second managed to survive. In 2011, "unknowns" blew up Mostaf Ahmadi Roushan, an employee of the Natanz nuclear center. And in the fall of 2020, the famous nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who headed the Amad project to develop a nuclear warhead for a ballistic missile, was shot.

Tehran blames all these killings on the Israeli and American special services, which are trying to bleed the military direction of the Iranian nuclear program. By the way, in December 2020, Fahmi Hinawi was shot in Tel Aviv by "unknowns" in his car, whom the Middle Eastern press calls a high-ranking Mossad official involved in organizing the assassination attempt on Fakhrizad. Apparently, Tehran did not “wipe off”, as some of our former compatriots, who emigrated to Israel and were deeply imbued with the local spirit, expected.

However, let us return to the latest terrorist attack in Natanz. Why is this time "Mossad" almost beats itself in the chest, almost directly informing through the American and Israeli media loyal to it about its possible involvement? This is so unlike the usual way of working for special services. To answer this question, the general context must be taken into account.

Washington and Tel Aviv, unable to defeat Iran without unacceptable damage, made an open bet on Iran. economic strangulation, and quite a few succeeded in this. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled the United States out of the 2015 Comprehensive Settlement Action Plan by reinstating previous US sanctions. For the Islamic Republic, this was a very sensitive blow, since it lost most of its oil export revenues, and even against the backdrop of pandemic restrictions. The socio-economic situation in the country has deteriorated sharply. However, by 2021, a lot had changed. First, the Republicans in the White House have been replaced by Democrats who are interested in reviving the "nuclear deal." Second, Iran has taken two important steps towards breaking the western blockade. Tehran announced its readiness to join the Eurasian Economic Union, where it will gain access to the 200 millionth market. Beijing also signed a $ 400 billion investment agreement with Iran over the next 25 years. Thus, Israel's plans to gradually strangle their worst enemy began to come apart at the seams.

So why did the Mossad actually take responsibility for the Natanz attack?

Probably, the goal of the Israeli leadership was to provoke Tehran into tough retaliatory measures in order to disrupt its negotiations with Washington to revive the "nuclear deal". Tel Aviv understands that the possible lifting of sanctions and the receipt of external investment in the enemy's industry and infrastructure will lead to the economic strengthening of the Islamic Republic and an increase in its financial capabilities for the implementation of weapons programs. Israel cannot defeat Iran by military means without unacceptable damage, and, most likely, it will not succeed in strangling it. Hence the increased attention of the loyal press to the provocative terrorist attack. And what else is left for them?

      For how many years, both with neighbors and neighbors, and now "and through the house" with distant ones, Israel has established diplomatic relations in full, a visa-free regime and comprehensive cooperation. With Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, Morocco, Bahrain, OAU. The Muslim state "Republic of Kosovo" has opened an embassy in Jerusalem. You haven't heard anything about this? But this does not mean that your post is true.

    Now the Palestinian Cossacks will begin to assert about a "preemptive strike" of the valiant Jews on Iran, which makes an atomic bomb and is about to drop it on the heads of the "all-ignorant" unfortunate people of Israel, and they have the right to defend themselves.

      Israel remains Olympic calm in the face of the danger that comes from you personally. But do not relax, you do not need to relax. Pull up your pants! And everything will be all right. And in Israeli-Iranian relations, there is complete mutual understanding. Everyone fulfills their role. Some do and successfully, others promise to take revenge for what they have done. Everything is in business.

    The Jewish trace "was also confirmed by the Israeli Jerusalem Post, which stated that the Mossad could be involved in the attack.

    So confirmed or maybe?

    Is it any wonder that Iran is interested in developing its own nuclear weapons to establish military parity with its main enemy in the Middle East?

    Worth it! Israel did not declare Iran an enemy and did not create nuclear weapons against Iran. Why do you need military / nuclear parity with a country that has no borders, territorial or economic disputes with you? That never threatened you.
    Only in Tehran and St. Petersburg can it be considered that the entire current situation was created by Israel, which, out of natural harm, runs into Iran.

    Instead of seeking peace, Israel is looking for an excuse to use force. Sooner or later, such a policy will turn into a war with the entire Muslim world.

      The Muslim world is different. And controversial. From the soft Islam of Indonesia and Malaysia, to Iranian and Afghan orthodox fanatics. And according to the development of economies, culture, history - there is absolutely no unity. There is always someone among themselves, but they are at enmity. Even representatives of one confession: Iran - Azerbaijan, Arabia - Yemen, Kurds - Turks. In Syria, in general, anyone will break their heads trying to guess who is fighting with whom and for what? Therefore, Israel will never come across a "united Muslim world." Not to mention the fact that there have always been Muslim countries (Egypt, Tunisia, Jordan, Morocco) that were secretly negotiating with Israel behind the backs of their allies. Yesterday - the OAU - the fierce enemy of Israel, and today - a visa-free regime, economic cooperation and $ 40 billion in investments. But the Muslim world, especially its Arab segment, has one thing in common: only strength is respected and understood. Israel is respected and went to peace with it, precisely for this and only this reason. Iran is weaker - and therefore an outcast in the Muslim world. For these reasons, there will never be a war with the Muslim world in the presence of a strong Israel. And the Jews, unlike you, are well aware of this.

    Mr. Marzhetsky, you, among other things, are repeating in the text a mediocre fake that the Arab drug dealer killed in a criminal showdown is a high-ranking Mossad employee, have you even thought about the absurdity of such a statement? Yes, if Iranian agents were really capable of destroying employees of its intelligence structures on the territory of Israel, then the Jewish state simply did not exist. Anyway, only a completely ignorant person can believe that a high-ranking Israeli intelligence officer can bear the name Fahmi Hinawi. fool Are you still doing analytics? laughing laughing laughing I will give you advice on this topic: Iranians will never become the owners of nuclear weapons - remember this simple truth as a multiplication table, this is an axiom! hi

    It is significant that on the holiday of Israel's Independence Day, his longtime "admirer" S. Marzhetsky, decided to mark his anti-Israeli publications. Has the right. And it's not scary. Neither him, much less Israel. It is clear that everyone writes as he hears. But not to the same degree may be absent of the mule. I mean, at least some kind of respect for facts, their silence, or just distortion. However, in order. The basis of the reasoning of a fighter for all good versus all bad is that Iran and Israel are mortal enemies. Who would argue. Here's just a question, even two:
    - since when ?;
    - why all of a sudden?.
    Without an answer to this fundamental question, all further formations go off into the whistle. It is completely incomprehensible: why should the Jews fly to the distant lands to bomb Iran, and the Persians to dig in at the Israeli borders. The dashing assertion that Israel will suffer unacceptable damage if it only dares to hit the clever Ayatollah's head with brass knuckles is not specific. And if we compare the budgets, including those of the military, of impoverished Iran and rich Israel, then they are unconvincing. Especially against the backdrop of blows to Iranian pride and Tehran's unchanging empty promises to abstract Zionists;
    a) take revenge;
    b) it is scary to take revenge.
    Further more. It is asserted on the blue eye that a terrorist act was allegedly committed in Natanz just now. I remember that the author claimed to have a law degree. I can't believe it. Because for a lawyer, it is not difficult to distinguish an act of terrorism from sabotage. At least on the subjective side. In particular, the motive was gone. They are completely different in the indicated sosiaves. Not to mention the fact that Israel did not take responsibility for the mentioned incident, the absence of a final judicial decision. Or at least recognition of the fact of the UN. And the sources that the author refers to are by no means an official statement on behalf of the state. And they are clearly inferior in importance to the presumption of innocence. Or let's say this passage (I quote):

    By the way, in December 2020, Fahmi Hinawi was shot in Tel Aviv by "unknowns" in his car, whom the Middle Eastern press calls a high-ranking Mossad official involved in organizing the assassination attempt on Fakhrizad. Apparently, Tehran did not “wipe off”, as some of our former compatriots, who emigrated to Israel and were deeply imbued with the local spirit, expected.

    It is undignified, frankly, to issue a showdown between ethnic Arab groups with the murder of Arab crime boss Fahmi Hinawi from Lod for the elimination of almost the head of the Mossad by the Iranian special services. And for dessert - a pearl. Trump is gone, and Biden is about to pat Iran on the head. And from the fear of the rise of Tehran
    Israel went all out. Although not only the results of the negotiations, there is no trace of the negotiations themselves. Moreover, the Democrats have promised that Iran will not have a nuclear club. Because matches for children are not a toy. I have only one question for the author: what is the publication itself, consisting of omissions, legal blunders and outright fakes?

    Israel's contradictions are part of the Jewish mentality and culture. They have always been, as an integral and constructive element of intra-family relations. They are never taken out of the hut. Never. Bad taste. So don't exaggerate. On any issues that require unity (not necessarily an external threat), the Jews are always monolithic. Take the corona epidemic in the world. It was Israel, in spite of all the disputes, who was the first on the planet to emerge from the epidemic with its head held high. Without any fuss, systematically, in the shortest possible time, 5 million people were vaccinated with two portions of the vaccine. Out of 9. The adult population is 75% vaccinated. Israel has already, again the first in the world, to achieve herd immunity. So not only an external threat is the foundation of the nation's unity. Here, if they are not taken to the army for health reasons, then the conscript goes to court to be drafted. Because it is shameful not to serve. They will not understand that way. "There are many things in the world, friend Horatio, that are beyond the control of your mind." And no one in Israel goes into ecstasy after drinking a liter ...)

      The Romans laid siege to Jerusalem, in which it turned out, according to Josephus, about 1 Jews gathered for the feast. The reason - the Jews decided not to pay taxes.

      With a sizable army, the Jews could fight the Romans. They could surrender and agree to pay taxes - the Romans agreed to peace. They could also try to sit out behind the powerful walls that protected the city.

      The Jews decided, instead, to put all their folly together. They divided into three armies - two - armies of war, and one - of peace, and started a civil war in the besieged city. The extremists - the Sicarii - burned down food stores, and the besieged died of hunger. The surviving 100 were sold into slavery.

        The link is incorrect. Do you even know who Flavius ​​Josephus was, or rather Matityahu? And his position in describing the Jewish war? I read it in the original by the way. And I have never met such an opus. More like A. Dikiy, or G. Klimov - recognized pathological personalities are similar. Do you know about the tendency of all ancient authors to name unrealistically overestimated figures? Read Giovagnoli "Spartacus", or "Biography" of Plutarch. Where every day millions of armies of opponents clashed in an open field. Compare with Napoleon's army retreating from Moscow. The vanguard was already in Smolensk, the rearguard was still in Moscow. This is the first thing. The heroic resistance of the Jews to the Romans in the Mossad and the mass suicide of the surviving defenders who did not want to be captured and slavery to the Romans entered world history, along with the battle of the Spartans at Thermopylae. This is the second thing.
        What does the discussed publication of Marzhetsky have to do with it? Flood again, as always, because there is nothing to say. This is third.
        Is there anything to say about my example with vaccination, emphasizing the unity of the Jews in all extreme situations? This is the fourth.

    Basically, these are not neighbors, but Muslim countries. Only 2 out of 18 border on Israel. The criterion is precisely the non-recognition by Islam of the right of a non-Muslim state to exist in this region.

    Patriotism is a delicate matter, but does not require delicacy, especially when played by fools. In the end, this is their own business, but in politics there are no matters so personal that they do not concern anyone. Therefore, to the patriots of Russia, for whom anti-Semitism is the highest form of its manifestation, the countries standing on this tested platform seem to them to be their best friends. Even if otherwise they pose a direct threat to their own country. I think the Kremlin is well aware of the fact that Iran is an enemy, ready to put its foot down at any moment. But when there are many open enemies, even potential enemies seem like a blessing, albeit temporary. As for Iran, Iran has clearly declared its irreplaceable political formula: "We are not against Jews, but against Israel." And, of course, their destruction is considered their main task. To understand the complete lack of a sense of humor in a country that has given many good examples of this property, if the Russian lads heard that someone is not against Russia, but does not like Russians, not to mention that he wants to destroy them? So Israel's desire to delay the realization of Muslim dreams as far as possible, to the grief of the Russian anti-Semites and their accomplices in Iran, is quite legitimate. As for the lack of evidence that the Jews have an atomic bomb, let them follow their example, and not knock a soup spoon on the body of a dream that has not yet been created.
