On The World vs. Iran's Race For The BombTopics: Iran
It looks like there's more incriminating evidence coming that Iran has been lying about it's "non-military" intentions for nuclear development. According to Time, an International Atomic Energy Agency report on Iran's activities is expected to include "potentially incriminating" details about traces of highly enriched uranium recently found by inspectors on equipment at the Lavisan-Shian military site:
... "potentially incriminating" details about traces of highly enriched uranium recently found by inspectors on equipment at the Lavisan-Shian military site. The find is significant not because of the residue--it isn't Bomb grade and may have been on the equipment when it was bought from renegade Pakistani nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan--but because Iran hasn't explained why such enrichment tools were found at a military facility. Iranian officials still insist their military is not engaged in nuclear work.Is there anyone that seriously believes Iran is pursuing nuclear technology solely for "peaceful purposes"? Not really, and for good reason: Previous IAEA reports have severely undermined the Iranian regime's repeated claims that its nuclear program is geared solely toward the development of civilian nuclear energy, and "If the program is peaceful, why 18 years of deceit ... why not cooperate with the IAEA ... why the unexplained ties to the A.Q. Kahn network ... why does Iran possess a document on fabricating nuclear weapons components ... why the unexplained ties to Iran's military and its missile program?"
More and more, it's begining to look like crunch time is approaching in weeks, not months. In the meantime, as I've written in numerous previous posts (here and in other posts), expect Ahmadinejad and the mullahs to continue their employment of al-Taqiya (a theologically justifiable lie for a greater purpose), cheating, lying, and deceiving to further the cause of Islam:
According to Al-Taqiya, Muslims were granted the Shar'iya (legitimacy) to infiltrate the Dar el-Harb (war zone), infiltrate the enemy's cities and forums and plant the seeds of discord and sedition. These agents were acting on behalf of the Muslim authority at war, and therefore were not considered as lying or denouncing the tenants of Islam. They were "legitimate" mujahedeen, whose mission was to undermine the enemy's resistance and level of mobilization. One of their major objectives was to cause a split among the enemy's camp. In many instances, they convinced their targeted audiences that Jihad is not aimed at them, that indigenous people are not targeted, only Bysantium power. They convinced many Jews that they will be protected from Christians, called pagans, and they convinced many Christians that Jews were the mortal enemies, because they killed Issa (Jesus). They convinced the Aramaics, Copts, and Hebrews that the enemy is Greece, and signed peace agreements with the Bysantines Greeks at the expense of Maronite Aramaics, etc.Interestingly, the idea of Ahmadinejad practicing taqiya was posited back on May 10 by Asia News in reference to Ahmadinejad's letter to President Bush.
This Jihadic agency of subversion was one of the most fascinating and efficient arms of the conquest. In less them four decades the MIddle East fell to the Arab-Islamic rule, followed by north Africa and Central Asia.
Al-Taqiya was a formidable weapon, used by the first dynasties and strategists. Today, scholars may identify it as deception. But the Jihadic deception was and still is more powerful than the James Bondian methods of Western classical intelligence tactics, for the simple reason that it has a civilizational, global dimension versus the narrow state interest of the regular Western subversive methods.
(...) At the purely political level, Ahmadinejad's message means little, even if for tactical reasons it was sent at the right moment for delaying and disturbing Security Council negotiations. A real peace proposal would have been signed by Khamenei himself. And not even that would have been a sufficient guarantee, if one thinks of taqiya (a theologically justifiable lie for a greater purpose).Taqiya? Yes, without question. Fortunately, it appears that Sec. Rice and Pres. Bush are finally "getting it".
(...) Rather than being a truly political and religious message, Ahmadinejad's letter is a warning, almost an incantation. This ritual appeal gives a glimpse of a fanatical bent and displays, yet again, a messianic and apocalyptic way of thinking, mutatis mutandis, that inspires Ahmadinejad and various leaders of the Iranian regime. A trend that is gaining strength and that likely constitutes of the main challenge to pragmatics and reformists in Iran - and to the international community.
