‘This madness mustn’t be tolerated,’ Tehran says after ex-Mossad chief implies Israel had role in blast & assassination in Iran

RT | June 12, 2021

The Iranian mission to the UN has accused Israel of ‘lawlessness,’ after the newly retired head of Mossad implied that his agency had been behind an explosion at an Iranian nuclear facility and the killing of a key scientist.

The comments made by Yossi Cohen in his bombshell TV interview midweek reflected a long-running pattern of “criminal” sabotage by Israel against Tehran, Shahrokh Nazemi, a spokesman for Iran’s mission to the UN, told the AP news agency on Saturday.

“This lawlessness has reached a point when the former official of this regime is shamelessly and blatantly threatening our nuclear scientists with death,” Nazemi said, insisting that “this madness must not be tolerated.”

During his interview, Cohen, who was the director of Mossad from 2016 until last week, stated: “We say very clearly [to Iran]: we won’t let you get nuclear weapons. What don’t you understand?”

The former spymaster suggested Mossad played a role in the blast at Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility last July and the assassination of the country’s top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, in November.

Cohen stopped short of directly confessing to both incidents, but bragged that the facility didn’t “look like it used to” after the explosion crippled its centrifuges. He also confirmed that Fakhrizadeh had been a target for intelligence-gathering by Mossad “for many years” because Israel was “most troubled” by his work.

Tehran had blamed Israel for those incidents as well as another explosion at Natanz this April.

Nazemi insisted the Jewish state had actually been making attempts to sabotage the Iranian nuclear program for more than a decade – since a 2010 cyberattack that destroyed centrifuges to enrich uranium at the same site.

  2. “…this madness must not be tolerated.” Indeed. Amen. BUT this madness IS tolerated by the colonialist-minded psychopaths of the world. The Zioterroentity is a rogue monster that must be reined in and stopped. I’m moved to connect this news to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments this week about what is, in the end, “justice denied anywhere is justice denied everywhere.” Whether the Ziomonster or the US or the Taliban or (whoever) commits possible (or actual, in the case of the Ziogerm) acts of war criminality or crimes against humanity, those acts must be confronted, deliberated with precise balance, and remedies imposed and carried out with justice and only justice — accountability — in mind and action. Ilhan Omar was/is pointing out the hypocrisy rampant on the world stage, and it’s about time the “world” woke up and took resolute action to clear the decks and start over.

    Such are my immediate, visceral ramblings. Viva Iran! Viva Palestine! May outlaws like the US and ZioIsrael be brought to truth and justice!

    Thanks to RT and AN.

    • Imagine, if you will, the mass of “DIRT FILES” that the Zioterroentity must hold on everyone in power, in the American House, Senate, Supreme Court etc, etc, and in the highest levels of the American Hierarchy……..
      It’s no wonder that the “Most Powerful men on Earth” are like putty in their hands……..
