By sabotaging Iran’s nuclear program, Israel sabotaged world peace

Pentagon chief Austin’s visit to Israel serves as a stark reminder that regardless of stated US policy goals, Israel almost always gets its way.

After a week of fruitful discussions between the parties to the Joint Comprehensive Program of Action – the JCPOA, better known as the Iranian nuclear agreement – and the United States (who, since May 2018, was no longer a party, and as such sat in as an observer), it looked as if the US and Iran had agreed to a mutually accepted outcome: the lifting of all nuclear-related sanctions imposed by the US in exchange for Iran returning to full compliance with its obligations under the terms of the JCPOA. The devil was in the details, however. And by week’s end there was no agreed-upon formula regarding the sequence of events concerning the actions needed to be taken by both parties to fulfil their respective requirements. There was not even a timeframe.

While the diplomats worked to come up with a solution acceptable to all parties, on Saturday Iran celebrated what it calls “National Nuclear Technology Day”, marking eleven years of mastering the nuclear fuel cycle. Iran’s President,Hassan Rouhani, visited the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, where he inaugurated a cascade of 164 IR-6 centrifuges for producing enriched uranium, as well as two test cascades containing 30 IR-5 and 30 IR-6S centrifuges, respectively. Rouhani also oversaw the initiation of tests of its latest-generation IR-9 centrifuges, and participated in a ceremony marking the opening of a new underground centrifuge assembly facility intended to replace one which had been destroyed in July 2020 by an explosion that has been attributed to Israel.
