From journalist Tom Gross:
FORMER IRANIAN PRESIDENT RAFSANJANI ADMITS IRAN AIMED (AIMS) FOR NUKES
Former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has admitted what Israel has maintained all along (and critics of Israel in the western media have doubted): that Iran’s nuclear program was launched in order to build nuclear weapons. The BBC and other media have continually repeated the regime’s misinformation that its massive uranium enrichment program was for non-military purposes.
Rafsanjani made the remarks on Monday to the state-run IRNA news agency, reports Agence France Presse and other media.
This is the first time such a senior regime insider has admitted Iran wants a nuclear weapon. Rafsanjani did not say whether the regime would now like to acquire nuclear weapons.
Iran has been trying to build a nuclear weapon since the 1980s but has been thwarted in various ways by successive Israeli governments.
In the past, and in defiance of the United States, Israel has also prevented the regimes of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and of Bashar Assad in Syria, from developing a nuclear weapons program.
Not only has Israel prevented these genocidal tyrants from obtaining such deadly weapons, but the site of Syria’s nuclear program bombed by Israel in 2007 now lies in territory captured by ISIS, so presumably the outside world should also acknowledge that it was a good thing Israel acted in defiance of almost the whole world (including every senior member of the Bush administration apart from Dick Cheney) and ISIS doesn’t now have nuclear weapons.
In the interview published on Monday, Rafsanjani revealed that Iran’s nuclear program was also helped by controversial Pakistani nuclear scientist Abdel Qader Khan, who is reported to have sold nuclear weapons technology to North Korea.
Rafsanjani said he and the country’s now Supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei, who was at the time a mere politician and a close confidante of then supreme leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, together went to Pakistan for talks with Khan in the 1980s.
