Self-destruction in Iran

This is the second time in a month where there has been an explosion at one of Iran's nuclear facilities. The official line is that there is nothing to see, move along. Satellite photos show massive damage and billowing smoke. Is it possible the Israelis, along with other participants have managed to do an inside job, maybe the second in 30 days? You be the judge after reading the statement from Israel.

Whatever the reason for the blast, there is cause for joy over this latest setback to the nuclear program of an enemy of the world.

A second Iranian nuclear facility has exploded, as diplomatic tensions rise between the West and Tehran

AN IRANIAN nuclear facility has been hit by a huge explosion, the second such blast in a month, prompting speculation that Tehran's military and atomic sites are under attack.

Satellite imagery seen by The Times confirmed that a blast that rocked the city of Isfahan on Monday struck the uranium enrichment facility there, despite denials by Tehran.

The images clearly showed billowing smoke and destruction, negating Iranian claims yesterday that no such explosion had taken place. Israeli intelligence officials told The Times that there was "no doubt" that the blast struck the nuclear facilities at Isfahan and that it was "no accident".

The explosion at Iran's third-largest city came as satellite images emerged of the damage caused by one at a military base outside Tehran two weeks ago that killed about 30 members of the Revolutionary Guard, including General Hassan Moghaddam, the head of the Iranian missile defence program.

Iran claimed that the Tehran explosion occurred during testing on a new weapons system designed to strike at Israel. But several Israeli officials have confirmed that the blast was intentional and part of an effort to target Iran's nuclear weapons program.

On Monday, Isfahan residents reported a blast that shook tower blocks in the city at about 2.40pm and seeing a cloud of smoke rising over the nuclear facility on the edge of the city.

"This caused damage to the facilities in Isfahan, particularly to the elements we believe were involved in storage of raw materials," said one military intelligence source.

He would not confirm or deny Israel's involvement in the blast, instead saying that there were "many different parties looking to sabotage, stop or coerce Iran into stopping its nuclear weapons program".

Iran went into frantic denial yesterday as news of the explosion at Isfahan emerged. Alireza Zaker-Isfahani, the city's governor, claimed that the blast had been caused by a military exercise in the area but state-owned agencies in Tehran soon removed this story and issued a government denial that any explosion had taken place at all.

On Monday, Dan Meridor. the Israeli Intelligence Minister, said: "There are countries who impose economic sanctions and there are countries who act in other ways in dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat."

The only country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons is Israel. We are being told by the media to support the idea that only Jews are entitled to own these weapons, and that everyone around them is too inferior to respond. This is the only kind of racial supremacy still acceptable in Western countries.

Everyone understands why Pakistan got the bomb after India did - but the idea that Iran should try to defend itself against the nuclear-armed Jewish supremacists in the hood is regarded as haram. Americans are expected to risk their lives and their economy taking sides in a dispute in the Middle East. This blog and much of the US media is an expression of Jewish racism disguised as American patriotism.

So Jay, let me understand. You imply Jews are superior and that everyone around them is "inferior" and that it is racist of Jews to not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. First, if non-Jews are inferior, explain why there is a Muslim judge sitting(for life) on the Israeli Supreme Court. Also, explain what race Iranians are, or any countries inhabitants...Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Algeria, Libya, Egypt...what race are these people, Jay? Algerian is not a race, neither is Lebanese, Libyan or Egyptian. Arabs are a race and I have said nothing about Arabs. It is anti-semites such as yourself who use the word "racist" to stigmatize and marginalize those whom you wish to censor, it shuts down any conversation and chills relations for any kind of dialogue. It is a bully's way of controlling the conversation. One last thing, Jay, read the Qur'an and hadiths of Muhammad as well as Shia apocalyptic theology. It may help clear your misconceptions on Iranian plans for the future.


@JAY ---- You sound much like a "Under Cover Terrorist Against America" would sound.

None of this has to do with racism, or superiority. It is all about “Survival of The American Way”. Read our Constitution and read our Bill of Rights, read the Federalist Papers. If they make sense to you, then there is hope for you.

America "IS" superior and Israel "IS" our friend and ally. America "IS" the place more people around the world are trying to immigrate “TO” not “FROM”

If you believe any other angle, any other platform, then you need to take a “One Way Trip” to the country that fits your brain thought foot print, and do not come back.

If your in America, you’re an American, and if your not a true red blooded American then “GOOD BYE“.

OK, so let's agree not to use the word 'racism' to describe the ruthless defense of a particular ethnic interest. In that case, Jews are free to defend their interests, and everyone else to defend theirs. If the majority of Americans decide it is in their ethnic interests to side with Iran rather than Israel, then it will happen. If they are dumb goys like 'Save and Protect America', it won't.
