HISTORY IN BRIEF

 

Why this huge timeline?

On May 8, 2018 Donald Trump pulled his country out from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, better known as "the Iran deal".

The Iran nuclear deal framework was a preliminary framework agreement reached in 2015 between the Islamic Republic of Iran and a group of world powers: the P5+1 (the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, and China—plus Germany) and the European Union.

But to Trump, that deal was a "bad deal"

GCM always find the deal as historical injustice because it was the United States who introduced the militarization of nuclear science, and silences to the world the following:

The Israelis never admit nor deny that they have a nuclear weapons program. However, this timeline contains a lot of hints that their practice of ambiguity is useless. Some of the entries are even outright clear that the Israelis are using Dimona nuclear reactor to produce nuclear warheads. So to GCM it is no longer relevant how the Israelis are trying to ignore to answer any question about their nuclear program.

The idea to militarize nuclear science began with a secret project launched in 1939. It was led by the United States and supported by the United Kingdom and Canada. This project, which was completed in 1946, have led to the production of the first two nuclear bombs the world ever became to know. Today it is known as the Manhattan Project.

The project took attention from the Polish Jewish immigrant, David Ben Gurion, the first Israeli leader, who said:

"What Einstein, Oppenheimer, and Teller,

the three of them are Jews, made for the

United States,  could also be done by

scientists* in Israel, for their own people.

 

Albert Einstein was a German migrant. Edward Teller was from Hungarian descent. Only J. Robert Oppenheimer was an American. They all were Jews. Ben Gurion first defended his desire to have the bomb by saying to the Americans "to prevent a second holocaust from happening".

The U.S. government first learned of Israel's secret nuclear program at Dimona from an American corporate official talking to U.S. diplomats in Tel Aviv during mid-summer 1960,  In the last months of that year the U.S. discovered that the Israelis had been building, with French assistance, a secret nuclear reactor near Dimona in the Negev Desert that could give the Israelis a nuclear weapons potential. The discovery caused apprehension within the Eisenhower administration by invoking concerns about regional stability and nuclear proliferation, but it also produced annoyance because Israeli officials at all levels provided less than credible answers to U.S. questions about Dimona.  One episode that helped create a sense of deception was that, in response to initial U.S. official questions about the construction site, the Israelis said it would be a textile factory.

Iran's nuclear program was launched in the 1950s (same period as those of the Israelis) with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program. The participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Iranian Revolution that toppled the last Shah of Iran. Fueled by high oil prices in the 1970s (Saudi triggered oil crisis), Iran sought to purchase large-scale nuclear facilities from Western suppliers in order to develop nuclear power and fuel-cycle facilities with both civilian and potential military applications. In March 1974, the shah established the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI).

Israelis are believed to have begun full-scale production of nuclear weapons following the 1967 Six-Day War, although it had built its first operational nuclear weapon in December 1966. Iran wouldn't get close to make a nuclear bomb until after 2010. In 2018, Tehran hasn't still such weapon as its nuclear program is subjected to IAEA inspection as part of the Non-Proliferation Treaty the Iranians have signed . The Israelis have always refused to sign the NPT, claiming the treaty as "hypocrite"
