Netanyahu Accuses Iran Of Developing Secret Project To "Test And Build Nuclear Weapons"

Update 2: Commeting on Netanyahu's speech, Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says allegations made by the Israel prime minister are lies aiming to deceive people and some governments, state-run FARS reports.

"The speech of Netanyahu and some American circles behind him are mere false claims that don’t matter"

Meanwhile, Abbas Araghchi, Iran's deputy foreign minister, said Israeli presentation accusing Iran of hiding a secret nuclear arms project shows how far it is willing to go to end the nuclear deal: "We are prepared for all scenarios. But this really shows how much theAmericans, the Zionist regime and the Saudis are worried about the opportunities that the nuclear deal provides Iran and the lengths they’ll go to stop it,” he said in comments aired on state TV.

Araghchi called the presentation “laughable” and says Israel has used an “old, worn-out scenario.”

Update: shortly after Netanyahu's speech, Trump addressed reporters at the White House with the following comments on the Iran revelations and nuclear deal, from Bloomberg:

  • *TRUMP SAYS HE SAW PARTS OF NETANYAHU'S SPEECH ON IRAN
  • *TRUMP DECLINES TO SAY WHAT HE'LL DO ON IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL
  • *TRUMP LEAVES OPEN POSSIBILITY OF NEGOTIATING NEW IRAN DEAL
  • *TRUMP SAYS HE HAS BEEN `100% RIGHT' ON IRAN SO FAR

In other words, no decision just yet.

Oil is soaring to $69.34/bbl, the highest price since 2014, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of secretly developing and building nuclear weapons. 

In a global televised address, Netanyahu  unveiled a cache of 55,000 pages of documents and 183 CDs, comprising Iran's alleged "atomic archive" of documents on its nuclear program; the files allegedly prove Tehran ran a secret program, called Project Amad, to "test and build nuclear weapons."

While Iranian leaders have long said their nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes, Netanyahu claimed this was not the case according to tens of thousands of pages of documents, which he said were copied from a "highly secret location" in Iran.

Those files detail Project Amad, which Netanyahu described as "a comprehensive program to design, build and test nuclear weapons."

“These files conclusively prove that Iran is brazenly lying when it says it never had a nuclear weapons program,” Netanyahu said. “The files prove that.”

He says the US has vouched for the authenticity of the secret archive obtained by Israel, and that it would make the documents available to the UN atomic agency and other countries.

According to Netanyahu, the files provided "new and conclusive proof of the secret nuclear weapons program that Iran has been hiding for years from the international community in its secret atomic archive."

Netanyahu concluded by saying "Iran lied about never having a secret nuclear program. Secondly, even after the deal, it continued to expand its nuclear program for future use. Thirdly, Iran lied by not coming clean to the IAEA," he said, adding that, "the nuclear deal is based on lies based on Iranian deception."

Watch a recording to Netanyahu's speech below:

In a rare move, Netanyahu called the heads of Israel's two news broadcasts and updated them with the content of his planned statement.

Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, said before Netanyahu's speech that the prime minister is just "the boy who can't stop crying wolf at it again."

As we noted earlier, according to Axios Bibi's speech would be "hugely helpful for Trump" as it "builds the public case for Trump to blow up the Iran deal on May 12 by reimposing sanctions on Iran’s oil exports and central bank."

In other words, it was up to Netanyahu to provide the media with cover for the next regional conflict: that between the US, its allies, Saudi Arabia and of course Israel on one side and Iran, Syria, Russia, and potentially China on the other. Or, as some would say, a true potential world war.

And sure enough, Bibi did not disappoint, delivering just as expected.

Netanyahu's remarks come less than two weeks before U.S. President Donald Trump must decide whether to continue suspending sanctions against Iran under that deal, or restore the penalties on one of the world's biggest oil producers.

The announcement also followed a meeting between Netanyahu and newly sworn-in secretary of State Mike Pompeo this weekend.

"We've shared this material with the United States and the United States can vouch for its authenticity," Netanyahu said.

The speech also comes just after an airstrike in Syria Sunday night in which 200 missiles were destroyed and 11 Iranians were killed, according to pro-Assad sources. Various reports attribute the strike to Israel, but the origin of the attack remains unconfirmed.

According to several Syrian media outlets, the strikes targeted the 47th Brigade base in the southern Hama district, a military facility in northwestern Hama, and a facility north of the Aleppo International Airport. The strike reportedly targeted an arms depot of missiles.

* * *

Some more highlights from Bibi's just concluded speech:

  • NETANYAHU SAYS ISRAEL CAN REVEAL "NEW AND CONCLUSIVE PROOF" THAT IRAN HAS BEEN HIDING NUCLEAR WEAPONS ACTIVITY
  • NETANYAHU SAYS HE WILL SHOW `SOMETHING WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN'
  • NETANYAHU SAYS HE WILL REVEAL IRAN'S `SECRET NUCLEAR FILES
  • NETANYAHU SAYS "IRAN LIED" AFTER SIGNING NUCLEAR DEAL
  • ISRAEL HAS SECRET FILES FROM IRAN NUCLEAR PLANS: NETANYAHU

  • NETANYAHU SAYS ISRAEL HAS SHARED INCRIMINATING FILES WITH U.S.
  • NETANYAHU SAYS U.S. HAS VERIFIED AUTHENTICITY OF FILES
  • NETANHAYU SAYS IRAN HAD SECRET PLAN TO BUILD NUCLEAR WEAPONS

The punchline: Netanyahu accuses Iran of having a secret plan called "Project Amad" whose has a goal to produce five 10-kiloton nuclear weapons:

And some more soundbites:

  • NETANYAHU SAYS PROJECT HAD ALL COMPONENTS FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS
  • NETANYAHU SAYS FILES PROVE IRAN `BRAZENLY LYING'
  • NETANYAHU DISPLAYS ALLEGED IMAGES OF SECRET IRAN ARCHIVES
  • NETANYAHU SAYS COVERT WORK CONTINUED BY IRAN OVER THE YEARS
  • NETANYAHU SAYS 100,000 `SECRET FILES' PROVE IRAN LYING
  • NETANYAHU SAYS IRAN DEAL `SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN CONCLUDED'

And now the ball is in Trump's court:

  • NETANYAHU SAYS HE'S SURE TRUMP WILL `DO RIGHT THING' ON DEAL

Which means that Trump's next tweet could end the price of oil soaring, and potentially greenlight a middle-eastern conflict far greater than the proxy war in Syria.

Just call him Colin Powellstein.  The speech that justifies war. 

Since everybody remembers how accurate Powell's speech was, the countries who attack/sanction will do so because they want to do so for other reasons.   This is all scripted for the history books.  It is not to actually convince anybody, as they must know that nobody who remembers 2003 would be so foolish as to believe any of it.

"‘“If we turn around and nix the deal and then tell [US allies], You’re going to have to obey our rules and sanctions anyway,’ that is a recipe, very quickly for the American dollar to cease to be the reserve currency of the world.”

They've had nukes for a long time. Everyone knows.

 

With neighbors like Israel, who wouldn't want nukes???

 

Not our problem. If Israel doesn't want to get roasted, Israel must learn to not be such total dicks. They'll never learn to get along if they have a big brother hovering over them every second. They won't have to.

Shame Bibi omitted to mention that the shit he just talked about was 15 years old!

 

That was lame. Netanyahoo just finished his show (vid). He claimed that Israel got access to an Iranian archive of its former nuclear program dating from 1999 to 2003. In 2007 a U.S. National Intelligence Estimate found that Iran stopped all nuclear weapon research in 2003 after the U.S. had destroyed Iran's then arch-enemy Iraq. In 2011 the IAEA reported in detail of Iran's former "structured program". It agreed that it had stopped in 2003.

All that Netanyahoo now claims to have acquired is old and known stuff. He refers to an AMAD plan Iran had as if that was some new intelligence. But the IAEA documented AMAD and its development in 2011 (PDF, Annex, page 5). He uses the archive documents of known former programs to declare that Iran has cheated and is not trustworthy. He says that gives Trump reason to disavow the nuclear agreement the U.S. and others had signed with Iran. That is bullshit.

If you are interested, here is a thread that takes Bibi's claims apart. Including the part that Israel must have hacked into the IAEA systems to have got some of the data.

Well done JohninMK. 

Kol Nidre. Look it up. Jews lie all the time. Their holiest prayer on their holiest day is all about asking forgiveness - In advance - For the lies, broken oaths, etc. that they are going to tell in the coming year. 

That may sound, as (((they))) say antiSemetic, but it's just the honest to God truth. Look it up yourself if you don't believe me. Sometimes (often times?) the truth is antiSemetic.

Netanyahu is now asserting without any RELIABLE EVIDENCE or INDEPENDENT investigation that Iran is engaged in a nuclear program contrary to the agreement, coinciding exactly with the US intent to break the deal. Why do they want to break the deal? Because based on groundless false-flag allegations that Iran is making a bomb to threaten Israel, they want a war with Iran ? And why do they want a war? Because in order for Israel to expand, the neighboring nations to Israel must be devastated and the people dispersed in droves like they have been for the past decade from Iraq and Syria (mostly into Europe and Turkey) and Iran is one of their main obstacles to such further Zio-expansionism. The other reason is that the Western oil barons, along  with the Zionists, are presently spending billions to destabilize and impoverish Iran to take back control of Iran's oil resources, but those efforts are not progressing as they did in Syria to cause an actual civil war, and before the area stabilizes any further this may be their last chance for the Western Axis to knock out Iran. That, in fact, is the entire sordid  basis of the thinking and the morality of our Western establishment and their puppet politicians in relation to Iran.

Gotta wonder why the desperation.  Maybe it's the (possible) imminent deployment of the S300 in Syria?  A real game changer, with that in place Syria (and Iran and Iraq) are free to do anything they like.  Develop a nuke,for example, just like their neighbor.

 

What's the audience for this? Obviously it's the US.  So that they are keen to die for Israel.

 

When the fuck will we learn from what happened with the "MWD" in Iraq?  They keep on trotting this one out, and we the sheeple keep on buying it.

So let me get this straight . . . Nutteryahoo and the Jews are accusing Iran of lying about their nuclear ambitions and having a secret nuclear weapons program??  Pot calling kettle, pot calling kettle . . . come in kettle.

Why can't IsraHell shut the fuck up and just go away?? The world would be a much better (and safer) place, that's for sure.

Colonel Cassad's article on Bubo Netanyahoo's Showcase Showdown® is hilarious. It even features a trip back to the year 2002 and Bubo's speech to the US congress when he guaranteed that taking out Saddam Hussein would, "have enormous, positive reverberations on the region."

Does this mean the Kol Nidre link is giving you gas? Look at what you wrote. All you can do is the ad homenim nonsense. That's so zionist jew of you. You don't like the truth? Instead of yapping at me, why don't you change the truth? Like try being a decent human being for instance. A concept I'm sure you've never considered.  You might find you like it. Your health may improve. You may live longer instead of dying early of some wacky jew disease due to all the tension you have to carry around trying to maintain all the lies you choose to infest your head with. You are like a plague on humanity.  Cure yourself.

"Sometimes (often times?) the truth is antiSemetic."

Actually, the infandously egregious (did we mention "deadly" too, yet?) antics if the Khazari ashkenazim (who, accurately traced-out, are in reality mere Caucasian converts to Judaism from Ancient Pre-Ukranian Times) have an extremely bad habit of splattering all others with the opprobrium that in reality only the ashkenazim themselves rightfully deserve.  The denouncing of inconvenient truths about these clowns as "antisemitic" is one of those ruses.  GENUINELY Semite-descended peoples - sephardic Jews and Palestinian Islamics alike - deeply resent the slur.

So does Yours Truly, a mere 'arf-breed Injun Jew Freak of the Old Funny-Hatted School!  Not due to any ethnic slur - them clownz have not gone after Native Nations folk in quite some time now.  Only because it is all part+parcel of the BIG LIE.  And that is all.  0{:-|o[

Because (((you))) sent the Muslims into Europe after bombing and driving them off their land. 

Hutzpah. A Jew murders his father and is found guilty at trial. The judge asks if there's anything the killer would like to say to the court before sentencing. The Jew, weeping and sobbing says "Your honor, please have pity on a poor orphan." WTF? Hutzpah.

Germans are too smart to catch a group of people, house them until a train comes, then put them on said train, and transport them far away only to kill them using something that costs a lot more than a bullet to produce and use.

The winners sold that story though.  I was taught it. And lampshades from skin, etc.

Oy vey, but they were too stupid even to do that right.  Don't forget, some 6 million "survivors" claim reparations (and the 7 million emigres during the pre-War and war periods explain the other demographic shift).  All those Jews all locked up all helpless and all in camps, and the stupid Klinks couldn't even kill them!  If only they had used the same methods they used against the heavily armed (tanks, howitzers, bombers, etc.) Reds.  Stupid Germans!  All they had to do was not feed them!

But oy vey, dumb Germans just be too dumb!

Can some you do me a favor? See you tube below: Go to the 35:41 mark on progress bar of clip and watch to 35:50 mark. When you watch, look just left of center and you will see a woman walking towards the camera, focus only on her during the clip. Now ask yourself a question. Why was she not in the so called gas chamber? I hope I can get some input to the validity of these 9 seconds

It was a cover stpry to coverup the murder of 25 million Russian Christians by the zio Bolsheviks.   The same people control the USSA and USSA Inc Roth$child government.

Where is Q Anon?   If Q Anon supports Bibi and the genocide in Syria then he is the swamp. 

Iran and Hezbollah have been helping Christians in Syria along with the Syrian military and Russia.

"You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators."

No more anonymous bullshit with Q. Come out and say it. "In order for the world to live, Rothschild Zionism must die". That's it. There will be no more wars where kids are. You can't drop bombs on places where kids are—assholes. Not a kid will be molested and not a kid will ever again be trafficked. This is where it was always going. Zionism/Satanism were always one and the same thing. Taking this down is how it all starts.
