Israeli rivalry against Iran

HOW WE VIEW THE DEVELOPMENTS

For years, the Israelis pursued a nuclear defense policy that is to described as intentional ambiguity. It was a position every American president since Dwight Eisenhower accepted. But, in a decision from 2015 adopted by the Department of Defense, a top-secret document detailing the Israeli nuclear program was declassified.

By publishing the declassified document that specifies the Israeli nuclear capabilities, the U.S. breached a silent, but well understood, agreement. Moreover, the document also notes the existence of research laboratories in the territory of the Israelis which are the equivalent of our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. (Jerusalem Post has removed the article, so we removed the link because it redirects you to their current website). But President Obama ordered in 2014 more than just 1 document to be declassified. They are known as the NUMEC files.

The motive behind the ongoing obstruction and meddling by the Israelis has its roots here:

In 2005, the Israeli rivalry escalated when the Guardian and the New York Times reported that Iran's first hard-line president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have said "Israel should be wipe-out from the map". Seven years later, in 2012, it came out that Ahmadinejad's inauguration words were at least to say as mistranslated.  Israeli anxiety and paranoia comes from this event and has even led to a course of obsession that is still today. Now they even resort in  sabotage the talks in Geneva.

Iran said on Wednesday it could enrich uranium up to 90% purity -- weapons grade -- if its nuclear reactors needed it, but added it still sought the revival of a 2015 deal that would limit its atomic programme in return for a lifting of sanctions.

There was limited damage from a sabotage attempt at a building of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization in June, the Iranian government said on Tuesday, despite satellite images appearing to show that part of a roof was missing.

Bushehr plant manager says power generation resumed and asks Iranians to minimise electricity consumption.

Israeli defence officials were checking whether Iranian forces were behind a possible attack on a cargo ship under partial Israeli ownership on Saturday on its way from Jeddah to the United Arab Emirates, Israel's N12 Television News reported.

Iran’s sole nuclear power plant is back online following an emergency shutdown two weeks ago, state TV reported Saturday.

Iran has been restricting U.N. nuclear inspectors' access to its main uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, citing security concerns after what it says was an attack on the site by Israel in April, diplomats say.

Israel has serious reservations about the Iran nuclear deal being put together in Vienna, new foreign minister Yair Lapid told his America counterpart, as he pledged to fix "the mistakes made" between the two countries over the past few years.

The attack was halted ‘before causing any damage to the building’, news agencies said.
