WHITE HOUSE: IRAN HAD A ROBUST, CLANDESTINE NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM: Responding to Israeli revelations on Iran's atomic archive, the White House Press Secretary said 30 April, 2018: "The United States is aware of the information just released by Israel and continues to examine it carefully. This information provides new and compelling details about Iran's efforts to develop missile-deliverable nuclear weapons. Iran had a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people. The Iranian regime has shown it will use destructive weapons against its neighbors and others. Iran must never have nuclear weapons." (White House) Continue to intercede that USA President Trump and his White House team will be thinking “outside of the box” and developing highly effective strategies to bring Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions to a complete halt!

BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY RESPONDS TO NETANYAHU’S IRAN SPEECH: British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson responded Tues.1 May 2019 to Israel's historic operation to obtain Iran's nuclear archive, which uncovered over 100,000 documents detailing Tehran's nuclear program. "The Israeli Prime Minister’s presentation on Iran’s past research into nuclear weapons technology underlines the importance of keeping the Iran nuclear deal’s constraints on Tehran’s nuclear ambitions," Johnson said. "The Iran nuclear deal is not based on trust about Iran’s intentions; rather it is based on tough verification, including measures that allow inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency unprecedented access to Iran’s nuclear program. The fact that Iran conducted sensitive research in secret until 2003 shows why we need the intrusive inspections allowed by the Iran nuclear deal today." Netanyahu last night revealed the purpose of Iran's secret nuclear program, Project Amad, was to design, produce, and test five nuclear warheads, each with an explosive yield of 10 kilotons of TNT, for integration with ballistic missiles. "That's like 5 Hiroshima bombs to be put on ballistic missiles." He further revealed that Project Amad had all five elements of a nuclear weapons program, designing nuclear weapons, developing nuclear cores, building nuclear implosion systems, preparing nuclear tests, and integrating nuclear weapons with missiles.

NETANYAHU: EUROPEAN DELEGATIONS WILL COME TO EXAMINE IRAN EVIDENCE: Israeli PM Netanyahu has spoken to the leaders of several European countries following the release of documents on Iran’s secret nuclear program, he announced in a press briefing on Tues. 1 May. They are expected to visit as soon as this coming weekend. Netanyahu stated that the leaders of Germany, France and the United Kingdom have accepted his invitation to send delegations to Israel to study the documents. Netanyahu also said that he spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as China's Xi Jinping, but that those two nations have yet to decide to accept or not. According to a senior intelligence official, the intelligence presented by Netanyahu Monday night 30 April, was presented to USA President Donald Trump in a meeting in Washington on 5 March 2018. Trump agreed that Israel would publish the information before 12 May 2018, the date by which he is due to decide whether to pull the United States out of a 2015 international nuclear deal with Iran. All the documents, which are in the original Farsi, have been studied by all relevant authorities. (J.Post) Intercede that the USA and all European parties, plus leaders from Russia and China will heed this wide-spread proof of Iran’s duplicity regarding its nuclear programs and plans. Pray these countries will all send delegations to Israel to study the factual material and that Iran will be completely crippled in its intentions to produce and launch nuclear weapons in the future or to destabilize the region as it has been working hard to do, mostly via Syria.

NETANYAHU: IRAN’S NUCLEAR DOCUMENTS TOOK MONTHS TO TRANSLATE: Israeli PM Netanyahu said Tues. 1 May, 2018 that he’s been reviewing the documents on what he claims are Iran’s nuclear activity for months. Netanyahu said the documents were in Farsi and took time to translate, but that he informed President Trump about their existence in March 2018. He gave them to the USA to investigate as well. “It’s taken us a while, but I think we know what we know, and we’ve presented what we know,” Netanyahu said. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the agency is still reviewing the documents and that he will be talking with European allies to determine what to do next. The documents come as Trump debates pulling out of the Iran agreement. Both he and Netanyahu say there are flaws in the agreement, and it needs to be entirely done away with in order to make a new one. 12 May 2018 is the deadline to either continuing waiving sanctions — as stipulated under the deal — or take new action against Iran.

MOSSAD SMUGGLED HALF A TON OF NUCLEAR DOCUMENTS OUT OF IRAN – IN ONE NIGHT: How did they do it? Israel’s Mossad intelligence service broke into the anonymous Tehran building that housed Iran’s secret nuclear files and smuggled half a ton of documents and compact discs back to Israel the same night. The NY Times in an article posted on its website Mon. night 30 April 2018, quoted a senior Israeli official who spoke on condition of anonymity as saying that the Mossad discovered the warehouse in Feb. 2016 and kept the building under surveillance since then. Mossad operatives broke into the building in Jan. 2018 took the original documents, and returned to Israel the same night. In his nationally televised broadcast, first in English, on Monday night, Israel’s PM Netanyahu described the hiding place of the documents. “This is where they kept the atomic archives. Right here. Few Iranians knew where it was, very few, and also a few Israelis,” Netanyahu said. “Now, from the outside, this was an innocent-looking compound. It looks like a dilapidated warehouse. But from the inside, it contained Iran’s secret atomic archives locked in massive files,” he said. On stage with Netanyahu were shelves of binders and a moveable wall of CDs. “And here’s what we got. Fifty-five thousand pages. Another 55,000 files on 183 CDs. Everything you’re about to see, is an exact copy of the original Iranian material,” he said, adding: “You may want to know where are the originals? Well, I can say they’re now in a very safe place.” Israel claims proof Iran "lied" about past nuclear program.

The unnamed official said that Trump was told of the operation to retrieve the documents by Mossad Director Yossi Cohen, when he visited Washington in Jan. 2018. The material was not unveiled until now because the documents had to be analyzed, and translated from Persian, the official said. Netanyahu said during his presentation that the information had been shared with the United States and that “the United States can vouch for its authenticity.” President Trump is set to decide by the middle of this month whether it will remain in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the deal is known. In a meeting with reporters shortly after Netanyahu’s presentation, Trump said that the disclosure “showed that I was 100% right” in criticizing the Iran nuclear deal. “That is just not an acceptable situation,” he also said.

SENIOR INTELLIGENCE SOURCE: A HUGE AND UNPRECEDENTED TROVE OF IRANIAN INTELLIGENCE: A senior intelligence official met Tues. 1 May 2018, with political and military correspondents and revealed a little information of the daring operation to obtain Iran's nuclear archive, which uncovered over 100,000 documents detailing Tehran's nuclear program. According to the source, Iran hid the archive and placed it under a very strict guard. Only a few in Iran knew about the archive. "We did not take the whole archive," said the senior intelligence official. "We received a tremendous amount of material that never reached Israel and in great volume, in Persian, a very complex and challenging material," he said. According to him, "the material reconfirmed what we knew in the past. Only to clarify - when the IAEA made their report it were based on a thousand documents, and we have over 100,000 documents, including new and significant material that shows with certainty that Iran seeks to develop nuclear weapons." The official explained that the Iranian archives give Israel a clear picture and is proof of the existence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program, alongside follow-up programs affiliated with Iran's political echelon, and programs that show the implementation and continued development of weapons. He is not moved by the possibility that Iran will deny the credibility of the documents revealed by Netanyahu. "The scope and diversity of the information will not allow Iran to say that the material is forged. With every Iranian statement that they do not intend to produce nuclear weapons, we have 100 proofs that they are lying," the senior intelligence source said. (Arutz-7)

AJC CONCERNED ‘IRANIAN REGIME IS GROWING BOLDER AND MORE DANGEROUS’: The American Jewish Congress says it is very concerned that the Iranian regime is growing bolder and more dangerous, with catastrophic potential consequences for the region and the world. While we opposed the Iran deal at the time we were happy to be proven wrong, but there are now worrying signs that Iran has been less than honest with the international community regarding its nuclear program. Responding to revelations by PM Netanyahu about Iran's nuclear-arms program, a statement by the congress continued, "The 15 year period where the nuclear program can be resumed is fast approaching. As President Trump said, it is “not acceptable” that in seven years Iran would be free to pursue its nuclear program. The allegations by PM Netanyahu show that President Trump may have been right regarding this horrible agreement. As the expiry of the waiver on sanctions against the Iranian regime similarly draws near, the American Jewish Congress echoes Netanyahu in calling on President Trump to do the right thing for the USA. The right thing for Israel. And the right thing for the peace of the world." (Arutz-7)
