Tags: Iran, Israel, Nuclear Scientists
Rev 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
“Hardly a day goes by when our senses are not bludgeoned by some new outbreak of terrorism in the Middle East. Despite our best efforts at making and keeping the peace, political, economic, and religious tensions often lead to unrest, violence, and riots.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
State media in Tehran reported the arrest of killers responsible for the deaths of two Iran nuclear scientists. Authorities continue to hunt for other persons that may also be guilty of attempted sabotage against their nuclear program.
Magnetic bombs were attached to cars of the scientists and detonated. The men arrested have been accused of the murders of a physicist at Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization and a deputy director at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.
Iran blames Israel and the United States for the plots in an attempt to slow down their nuclear program. D.C. of course denies any role in the killings of the Iranian physicist Majid Shahriari who was assassinated in 2010. Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan was killed in January this year. Israel declined to comment on this matter.
The Iranian intelligence ministry released this statement, “The key perpetrators of the assassinations were identified in a series of rapid and authoritative operations, were arrested and transferred to detention facilities.”
Tehran continues to deny they are developing nuclear weapons and claims that all they want to do is produce electricity and radio isotopes for medical treatment. They will be meeting for more “nuclear talks” with members of the United Nations in Moscow June 18 and 19.
Since 2010, four nuclear scientists have been assassinated. Mr. Fereydoun Abbasi Davani was wounded in one of the attacks and is now the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.
24 year old Jamal Fashi was hanged last month for the murder of Massoud Ali-Mohammad, in January 2010. Fashi had confessed going to Tel Aviv for training with the Israeli Mossad intelligence agency, then returning to Iran to plot the assassination. This information was met with scorn in Jerusalem. Israel’s official policy in situations like this is to not comment about the accusations, but an unnamed Israeli source did comment saying that the killings provoked panic among the scientists’ colleagues which did hinder Iran’s nuclear progress.
