United Nations 73rd General Assembly has focused many progresses of international politics and many tough things been said throughout the session. But Iran has been the only focus for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who allegedly claims that Israel has found out a new Nuclear facility in Tehran. The American President Trump has also criticized Iran as a dictator regime who are aggressive towards its neighbors and the world. But the important question is how authentic is the Israeli claim? are they bluffing or telling the truth?
On last Thursday Netanyahu addressed United Nations, focusing on Iranian Nuclear project and did not even bring the topic of its own brutality in Palestinian. He presented all his allegations with a different set of props and pictures in front of the audience and to the world on air.
“I am disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran, a secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and materiel from Iran’s secret nuclear program,” Netanyahu said.
The Israeli Prime Minister gave a calculation in his speech about Iran’s stored Nuclear equipment and materials in newly found Nuclear Warehouse which will be more than 300 tons and claims that Iran has scattered 15 kg of Radio Active rocks around Tehran to hide its intention. The Israeli Prime Minister threatens Iranian Atomic facility saying,
“We will continue to act against you in Syria, we will act against you in Lebanon, we will act against you in Iraq, we will act against you whenever and wherever we must act to defend our state and our people.”
On the other hand, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said denying the allegation, “The world will only laugh loudly at this type of false, meaningless and unnecessary speech and false shows,” and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif suggested that Israeli Nuclear project should be investigated which is still illegal and undeclared.
How valid is the allegation?
The controversial Nuclear program grew tension in 2002 among many powerful nations which was popularized by Israel. In 2012 Netanyahu made same allegation as it was on Thursdays at The UN General Assembly by showing a cartoon bomb and shamelessly popularized how close Iran to have Nuclear weapon and said Iran is a few month away to have their first Atomic Bomb. Their allegation continues in the same flow year after year. Again He said that Iran will gain Nuclear weapon in next 3 years in 2014. While International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said after the investigation that Iran is abiding the law of NPT and other other organizations are also satisfied with the Iran’s Nuclear Program. But the fun fact is, the few months from 2012 is still continuing in 2018.
James Bays, the diplomatic editor of Al Jazeera said on last Thursday regarding the allegation on Al Jazeera live that “He is making a Bald claim” and “There was no clear suggestion for nuclear weapon which has always been the focus of Netanyahu”. He also spoke about Israels silence on the Palestinian crisis. Al Jazeera Senior political analyst Marwan Bishara commented on the allegation and come up with a saying “He is using Iran initiative to distract the Palestinian peace negotiation.”
Israel was always concentrated on Iran and denied any peace talk on UN General Assembly for Palestinian and The Trump administration is backing the hypocritical allegation to divert attention from the apartheid and Israeli brutality in Palestine. Despite the fact that Israel has more than 200 of illegal Nuclear weapons and denied investigation many times, there is no talk on Israel’s undeclared Nuclear facility. So the Israeli claim is nothing but a bluff which is continuing for decades.
