Charges made were baseless. New facilities replace old ones or expand and/or renovate existing ones. Wherever nuclear activities exist, remediating contaminated soil entirely is impossible. Easily detected residues remain.
Charges nonetheless persist. Old ones get regurgitated. Iran has something to hide, critics claim. Evidence never backs up charges because there is none.
Haaretz cited a July London Daily Telegraph report. It said Iran "established a new team of 60 nuclear scientists to develop (its) military nuclear program."
So called information came from "the Iranian opposition group Mujahideen al-Khalq (MeK)." It's been previously linked to Mossad. Israeli operatives train its cadre to carry out anti-Iranian assassinations and other subversive and disruptive activities.
Its "information" is propaganda, not fact. New charges repeat old ones. All lack credibility.
Another August 7 Haaretz article headlined, "Before attacking Iran, Israel should stop shooting itself in the foot."
Instead of denouncing what's lawless and unjustified, Haaretz said Israel should enlist international support before striking.
Whether Israel an/or America attack, world public opinion will blame Israel, it said.
"So you would reckon that while the military commanders are formulating plans and replenishing stockpiles, Israel's political leaders would be busy gathering international support and accumulating reserves of goodwill in advance of an upcoming campaign."
"And you would conclude that the enormity of the dangers and the challenges that lay ahead" requires Israel to prepare for what's called "the most formidable challenge" in its history.
"Well, you might think all of the above, but you would be wrong."
Israeli policy-makers don't care what other leaders or world public opinion think. They act the same way about militarized occupation, settlements, Gaza's siege, and other lawless practices.
Israeli officials falsely claim Iran is the "greate(st) threat to Western civilization."
Israel is hostile to countries sharing other views. Doing so makes more enemies than friends. Haaretz stopped short of calling its charges baseless.
Another Haaretz article headlined "The secret behind an Iran war order," saying:
