    Top Iranian nuclear scientist assassinated



    Ali Arouzi and Adela Suliman and Saphora Smith and Paul GoldmanFri, November 27, 2020, 7:58 AM PST·1 min read






    TEHRAN — A leading Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated near the capital Tehran on Friday, Iran's Defense Ministry announced on state television.


    "Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today," Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote later on Twitter.
    "This cowardice — with serious indications of Israeli role — shows desperate warmongering of perpetrators," Zarif wrote, referring to Iran's arch-enemy Israel. "Iran calls on international community — and especially E.U. — to end their shameful double standards and condemn this act of state terror."
    NBC News has not independently confirmed any details surrounding Fakhrizadeh's death.


    A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office told NBC News they were "not commenting" on the reports.


    In the West, Fakhrizadeh was commonly referred to as Iran's Robert Oppenheimer, the American scientist who helped father the atomic bomb in 1945. Fakhrizadeh is a well-known figure and considered among the most important Iranian nuclear scientists in the country.


    He has long been suspected by the West to have masterminded what they said was a covert atomic bomb program halted in 2003. Iran has consistently denied seeking to weaponize nuclear energy.State media reported that Fakhrizadeh died in an attack in the Absard area of the province of Damavand, about 40 miles east of Tehran.

    In 2018, Netanyahu gave a presentation in which he unveiled what he described as material stolen by Israel from an Iranian nuclear archive and showed a photograph of Fakhrizadeh.


    "This is how Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of Project Amad ... Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh," Netanyahu said.

    Watch the new imperial leftists like Harrybc support the attack on humanitarian grounds. The Obama presidency completely extinguished the Bush era left wing anti war movement. Imperialism and wars are good when a lefty is doing it. They are just getting warmed up for Biden.

    On a totally unrelated note, there have been some great documentaries on Netflix about Mossad.

    Inside the Mossad is well worth a watch.

    I read his post three times and still couldn't make any sense of it. You'd hardly associate your average lefty with being pro-Israel and how many left wingers have been on the streets campaigning against the wars over recent years?

    Any sort of warmongering behaviour would have you kicked right out of the local quinoa and lentil appreciation society.

    If you live in Bangkok, you'd best be on the lookout for dodgy Iranians and Lebos looking like they are up to no good.

    They will probably be looking for another soft target, and the only reason they didn't get one the last time is that they accidentally blew up their own safe house.

    Of course the Iranians are saying the good doctor was working on a vaccine and Covid testing.

    I expect he was working in a baby milk factory as well.

    Ex-CIA Chief Brennan twattered:

    This was a criminal act & highly reckless. It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict.Iranian leaders would be wise to wait for the return of responsible American leadership on the global stage & to resist the urge to respond against perceived culprits.
    Ted the wanker Cruz replied:

    It’s bizarre to see a former head of the CIA consistently side with Iranian zealots who chant “Death to America.”And reflexively condemn Israel.Does Joe Biden agree?
    To which Brennan burned:

    It is typical for you to mischaracterize my comment. Your lawless attitude and simple-minded approach to serious national security matters demonstrate that you are unworthy to represent the good people of Texas.

    The arrest of a reported Turkish citizen with bomb-making material by Bangkok police has put the spotlight on the Grey Wolves, a pan-Turkic terror group with cause for enmity of Thais...

    I said that Obama killed the left wing anti war movement and now that Biden is coming in, the left will support US imperialism again. Trump is still in office and the likes of Harrybc already supported this assassination in principal in this thread.
