Scientists Won't Stop Our March toward Nuclear 'Progress'
true that the U.S. and its allies are assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists?
Ghanbar Naderi of Iran's state-run Kayhan asserts that regardless of how many
the 'Global Arrogance' kills, Tehran will never be deterred from marching ahead
with its 'peaceful' nuclear program.
The latest attack comes as the
West notches up the pressure for Iran to halt its nuclear enrichment
activities, which have always been under the direct supervision and
surveillance of the International
Atomic Energy Agency. Tehran maintains that its nuclear program is for
civilian energy purposes only - and disputes allegations by the U.S. and its
allies that it is seeking to develop a [nuclear] weapons program.
This attack follows the scenario
of others that have killed nuclear scientists in Iran's capital. Nuclear
physicist Daryoush Rezaei,
35, was killed last July in front of his Tehran home by assailants on a
And on January 12, 2010,
university professor and nuclear scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi died
in a blast when an assailant stuck a bomb under his car. Majid Jamali Fashi
confessed to the bombing and was sentenced to death in August. He admitted to
working for Israel's spy agency, the Mossad, confessing that Israel had been paid
him $120,000 to carry out the hit.
In November 2010, nuclear
Shahriari was killed in a blast, again, when a bomb was stuck under a car
by someone on a motorcycle.
Meanwhile, Mickey Segal, former
director of the Iran department at the Israel Defense Forces' Intelligence
Branch, told Israel Army Radio today that Wednesday's attack was part of broad
range of pressure being brought to bear on Iran.
Also on Wednesday, The Jerusalem Post reported that the chief of the
general staff of the Zionist regime’s military, Benny Gantz, speaking at a meeting
of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, warned that "2012
will be a critical year in the connection with Iran gaining nuclear power.”
But despite the pressure and
assassinations, Iran has made it clear that barbaric measures will not stop the
progress of its civilian nuclear program. According to Iran’s Intelligence
Ministry, the Mossad, the American CIA and British MI6 are behind these
attacks, a view shared by the latest victim’s family.

Rahim Ahmadi-Roshan, father
of the latest scientist to have been killed, “It is obvious who is behind these
assassinations, and there is little need for me to write the words. If you asked
a small child, even he would tell you that this was an attack linked to the U.S.,
Israel and the Global Arrogance.”
The mother of Wednesday's
victim, Sediqeh Salari, said, “They assassinated my son to remind us of how
much they hate our guts and to show their hostility. These are Iran’s sworn
One needn't dig too deep to
prove that the U.S. and its allies are behind the latest assassination plot.
Just for the record, to demonstrate that such targeted killings are accepted
American practice, a number of U.S. officials and presidential candidates have
made it repeatedly clear that Washington seeks to stop Iran’s nuclear program
through covert operations, including the assassination of scientists.
Just a day before the
assassination of Ahmadi Roshan, representatives of MI6 and the Mossad reportedly
met in Tel Aviv, at which time they discussed Iran’s nuclear program and
enrichment activities. They also shared intelligence on how best to slow Iran’s
In sum and as is maintained
by Iranian officials and leaders, no setback will persuade Tehran to backtrack,
because Iran is completely serious about how to move forward with its nuclear
issues. Its path is irreversible and there is no intention to retreat.
Into the bargain,
assassinations, sanctions and added pressure will just as effectively
consolidate Iranian national resolve to continue on its path to progress.
