Israel Sabotages Iran's Nuclear Program

The Daily Telegraph in the UK is reporting today that Israel has been sabotaging Iran's nuclear weapons program.

While he says he can't, under his nation's laws, report everything he learns, Israeli investigative reporter Ronen Bergman says this report should come as no secret to the Iranians nor the Israelis.

Bergman, author of The Secret War With Iran: The 30-Year Clandestine Struggle Against The World's Most Dangerous Terrorist Power, was my guest today on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com.

Bergman says the current head of the Mossad has focused entirely on Iran's nuclear threat. He says planes have malfunctioned and fallen mysteriously from the sky, Iranian nuclear scientists have disappeared and their labs have caught on fire, computers being used to calculate ingredients to develop The Bomb have crashed from unknown causes and nuclear centrifuge accelerators have failed to function.

Bergman favors President Obama's plans to talk to Iranian officials unconditionally - if that leads to a stand down on Tehran's nuclear weapons program and an end to the exportation of terrorism around the world. But he says there's a race on today. Between bringing the regime down and its plans to develop a nuclear weapon. If the Iranian government wins that race and develops a nuclear bomb, Bergman says removing the regime from power will become an even more daunting task.

As they say, it's dirty work, but someone has to do it. Thank god Israeli is willing to take on the task, and hopefully our new leader will have the good sense to support the effort.

Interfering clandestinely in the affairs of another nation state sounds a lot like an act of war. If the Israelis are actually doing this it will just feed into their reputation as the number one agent provocateur in the Middle East. If a state we didn't tacitly support did this (say Pakistan sabotaging India) we would call it terrorism.
