Files Show Iran's Program To Build Nuclear Weapons, Netanyahu Says

Netanyahu did not allege that the program has been active since the deal began but said the documents proved the deal was "based on lies".

"I understand the concerns of some countries in relation to the Iranian influence in other countries of the region".

Meaning we were and are now required to protect Iran against the very Stuxnet virus, developed by the NSA and Israel's Unit 8200, that for years disrupted and delayed an Iranian bomb.

The site quoted the foreign intelligence officials as saying that Fakhrzadeh was on Israel's list of targets, but did not mention the reasons for not moving forward in that scheme. Politics didn't get involved in national security issues. It will probably then die because Iranians' pride will not let them stay in a deal whose benefits, in terms of access to world trade, have evaporated.

He said thousands of pages of material, have been obtained by Israel which showed Iran had deceived the world by denying it had ever sought nuclear weapons. "He'll do the right thing". The statement was made days before President Donald Trump's deadline to decide if the USA will remain in the agreement.

Zarif added that the U.S. "will have to accept responsibility" for the consequences of not honouring its commitment to the deal.

Temperatures cool with an early chance of rain and snow Thursday
Tuesday will be a attractive day with mostly sunny skies and highs near 80 degrees! Some 80 degree readings are even possible. Clouds then return Friday evening with a better chance for some passing showers as a cold front sweeps through the area.

European leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, have been pressing Trump to strengthen rather than abandon the three-year-old deal that took more than a decade to reach. So in December 2015, the IAEA published its final assessment of what it called the military aspects of Iran's nuclear program.

No country has claimed responsibility for Sunday's missile strikes, which follow several suspected Israeli attacks inside Syria recently. "We're still learning them", he said. "We have no intention to attack Russian Federation or to interfere in domestic Syrian issues".

Mattis responded, "I can't think of any other goal for them right now".

Israel and the USA administration see the strength of Iran's conventional army and its potential nuclear power as two sides of the same coin.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Netanyahu's speech "underlines the importance" of maintaining the deal. These include Iran's missile systems and its support for Hezbollah.

Guterres told the BBC that the Iran agreement was an "important diplomatic victory" and should be maintained."We should not scrap it unless we have a good alternative", he said, adding: "We face unsafe times".

United Kingdom probing reports of British-Iranian academic's arrest
Kamal Foroughi , a British-Iranian businessman, was arrested in 2011 and sentenced to eight years in prison on espionage charges. Journalists and Iran watchers were surprised by Edalat's arrest, as he was known for campaigning against USA sanctions on Iran.

Netanyahu unveiled what he said were 100,000 files stolen by Israeli operatives from a secret Iranian storage facility. "The general aim is to announce the closure of Project Amad". If he instead uses Israel's intelligence windfall to fuel a global pressure campaign, he may actually have a pathway for getting a better, longer-lasting and more enforceable agreement.

Worldwide and Israeli experts said Netanyahu had presented no evidence Iran was in breach of the deal.

"Does he really think that with such a presentation he'll be able to wage war against Iran or against Iranian presence in Syria", Osman wondered.

"There is no question whatsoever that Saddam is seeking, is working, is advancing towards to the development of nuclear weapons", claimed Netanyahu.

An unnamed Israeli official said "the documents tell us more than the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) knew until today about the Iranian nuclear program".

But Dermer said the documents do show that Iran has had "an active program of concealing their nuclear weapons program" and that while governed by the nuclear deal, Tehran purposefully hid information about its past behavior.

CDC Expands Warning of Multistate Outbreak of E. coli Linked to Romaine
After an E. coli outbreak affecting 19 states as of Wednesday, 18 of those have been reported in Pennsylvania. So far there have been no deaths reported.

"What this means is the deal was not constructed on a foundation of good faith or transparency".
