On the other hand Iran is signatory to NNPT and while they have openly discussed development of nuclear energy so as to not exhaust their oil reserves, they have been criticized with claims from the West that the real ambition is to develop a nuclear war head. At this point in time neither state has a known rocket delivery system capable of reaching the other. It would be foolish of the United States or Russia to furnish a delivery system to either.
Under terms of the NNPT, peaceful use of nuclear energy is OK. Iran has signed on but Israel has not. One has to ask why Israel offers no transparency while Iran is open to inspection.
With such now non-secrecy of possession of a nuke capacity by Israel, one could not blame Iran if it were in fact pursuing an offset to nuclear blackmail from Israel, i.e., mutually assured destruction [MAD].
The United States was at the fore-front of efforts to create the state of Israel and to defend it against its Arab neighbors. It took only 11 minutes for the US to ratify the UN resolution creating Israel in 1948. All this has to do with the Christian concept of a redeemable Israel for the death of Christ with an expectation of a nuclear holocaust in the Middle East ending in a rapture and second coming of Jesus, king of the Jews who are expected to finally accept him as their long awaited Shiloh/Redeemer/King.
Mormons are aligned in that concept with one slight deviation. They believe that Zion will be built upon the North American continent at a place specific in Missouri and that Mormon leaders will become vice Regents of Christ ruling earth [The law shall go forth from Zion (in America) and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem] !
The church in fact has taken steps to implement that concept beginning as early as 1843 when it sent an emissary, Orson Hyde, to Palestine to dedicate the land for the return of Jews. Expecting it to happen soon thereafter, they were disappointed when it didn't, later sending emissaries several times to re-dedicate the land.
The biblical prophesies of such an event being fulfilled is central to Mormon doctrine and essential as a catalyst to propel it toward a delusional destiny of becoming the civil/theocratic world government.
The success of Jews returning to the Holy Land creating prophetic conflict with their Abrahamic cousins who were deceitfully deprived of the full inheritance of the estate of Abraham and promises of the Biblical God is an adventure of significant importance to Mormons but more importantly to their dictatorial leaders. It all has to do with unbridled ego and sense of importance. It is no wonder then that the secret order existing within the higher echelons of the church [ Danites/ Council of the Fifty] have worked hand in glove with Mossad.
The posture and thinking of Mormons toward Israel is well depicted by the narrative within W. Cleon Skousen's book, Fantastic Victory, published shortly after the 1967 six day war.
The establishment of a branch of Brigham Young University in Israel created a legitimate front for covert activities of the secret/CIA element of the church. It is from there that Mormon world political interests are promoted and pursued lobbying the Israeli government to pursue its unenlightened, inhuman activities under Mosaic Law of an eye for an eye philosophy against Arab states and the deprived Palestinian people.
The doctrine of pre-emptive strike as recently used by the US in Iraq is a reversal of that law in that in anticipation of the enemy striking, the retaliation is delivered first. We have seen justification for such criminal behavior uttered by the last Administration in regards to the attacks by Israel in preemptively destroying nuclear plants under construction in Iraq in the early 90's and in Syria as late as 2007.
The first public awareness of the nexus between Mossad and Mormon secret agents was published by Norman Mailer in A Harlot High and Low in the 60's when a reconditioned WWII Liberty ship was hijacked on the Thames River in London by Mossad. The ship had a cargo of uranium ore that had been originally mined in southern Utah. The details of that intrigue were published in an earlier article on OpedNews click here It involved the Utah Corporation which mines the surface of Australia as well as Chile.
I mentioned that Secret elements of the church conspired with the CIA to overthrow Democratically elected president Allende of Chile so that the business interests of the church could continue uninterrupted by the then recent action of Allende in nationalizing the mines in Chile.
The most recent exposure of that nexus came within the framework of the 9-11 event. Being pre-informed if not directly involved in the plans for destroying the Twin Towers as well as Building 7 on September 11, 2001 is demonstrated by official advice given to Mormons working in the World Trade Center to not show up for work that day.
All evidence indicates that 9-11 was a planned operation of Mossad utilizing all the intelligence it had in causing the pre-planting of explosives within all 3 buildings well in advance of that fateful day. Mossad agents were arrested after the event upon suspicions of citizens who watched them waiting with digital cameras on tripods aimed at the twin towers long before any aircraft struck them. The displayed actions of these Mossad agents was video taped by patriot observers especially when they jumped and shouted with joy at seeing the collapse of the towers and resulting deaths of 3,000 people.
