Haaretz called him a "top Iranian scientist believed to be the 'father' of Iran's nuclear weapons program"."

No evidence proves one exists. Nonetheless, baseless charges continue. Fear is generated. Public opinion is manipulated. War plans perhaps remain unchanged.

Haaretz said Fakhrizadeh's research was "apparently sidelined (for) a few years." He "resumed his work in a lab on the outskirts of Tehran"."

A UN "nuclear watchdog" called him "a key figure in suspected Iranian work to develop technology and skills needed for atomic bombs and suggested he may still play a role in such efforts."

A so-called report was cited. He's the only Iranian official named. Accusations without proof said Tehran "appear(s) to be developing nuclear weapons." How many times have we heard that before? Charges wore thin long ago. Nonetheless, they repeat. 

In November 2011, a spurious IAEA report said he headed an AMAD Plan. He was falsely accused of "carr(ying) out studies related to uranium, high explosives and the revamping of a missile cone to accommodate a warhead."

Again, no evidence corroborated charges. They're baseless or manufactured to look believable. Unidentified officials lack credibility. Iran's been falsely accused for years. Its agenda supports a nuclear free Middle East.

On August 29, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei addressed NAM leaders.

"In the recent past," he said, "we have been witness to the failure of the policies of the Cold War era and the unilateralism that followed it." 

"Having learnt lessons from this historical experience, the world is in transition towards a new international order and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) can and should play a new role."

NAM values, he said, include anti-colonialism, political, economic and cultural independence, solidarity and cooperation, world peace, and freedom from hegemonic dominance.

He accused Washington of bullying tactics. He called its Security Council control "a flagrant form of dictatorship." He said America and its "accomplices" terrorize defenseless people in the name of democracy.

They impose their will lawlessly on others. "Using their exclusive and organized media network, they disguise their lies as the truth, their falsehoods as true, and their oppression as efforts to promote justice." 

"In contrast, they brand as lies every true statement that exposes their deceit and label every legitimate demand as roguish."
