Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast dismissed Parchin allegations as scurrilous propaganda, saying:

"Those who have technical knowledge on nuclear issues would know that such propaganda is unjustifiable as evidences are irremovable from an area with nuclear activity."

He's right. Earlier US nuclear facility remediation efforts fell way short of planned objectives. Removing all hazardous material isn't possible. Enough remains to be easily detectable. 

Mehmanparast added that Iran's agreeable to IAEA Parchin inspection. However, doing so should conform to agreed procedures. No country would accept less. Nor should broadsheets like Haaretz publish fraudulent allegations used to justify waging war.

Deterrence works. MAD avoided possible Cold War nuclear confrontations. "Anguish over the prospect of an Iranian nuclear weapon is understandable. It would be better for Israel, the Middle East and the world if Tehran does not acquire such weapons."

Zakaria knows, or should, that Iran threatens no one, and it's nuclear program is peaceful. Suggesting otherwise is confrontational and hostile.
