Ex-Iranian Diplomat Warns Iran Will Get and Use Nuclear Bomb Within a Year

His timeline may not be exactly correct, but his reading of the regime certainly is.

An Iranian diplomat who defected in Norway in 2010 warned Israel on Friday that if the Iranians got the bomb they would use it against the Jewish state.

In an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 TV, Mohammad Reza Heydari, the former Iranian consul in Oslo who resigned and obtained political asylum there three years ago, said that ”If Iran is given more time, it will acquire the knowledge necessary to build a nuclear bomb within a year.” Asked whether it would use the bomb against Israel, he said: “If Iran gets to the point where it has an atomic bomb, it will certainly use it, against Israel or any other [enemy] country.”

Regime leaders “believe that when they acquire a nuclear bomb, [others] will start to behave toward them as they do toward North Korea,” said Heydari.

…so in essence the Clinton Admin’s pandering to North Korea, much of it perpetrated by John Kerry, has actually paved the way for Iran’s rush to acquire the bomb.

“They are busying themselves with ideological preparations for the arrival of the hidden Imam and are preparing the ground for that in a practical way; for this purpose, they are willing to spill much blood and destroy many countries.”

Cheerful news.

Heydari, who was previously stationed at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport as the representative of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, said that while he worked there he noticed that Hezbollah groups would come to Iran, acquire knowledge and send it back to Lebanon, under the auspices of the Revolutionary Guards. He said that Hezbollah had contacts with terrorist outfits in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the Taliban and al-Qaeda, with which it had close ties.

Heydari, who went on to serve as an Iranian diplomat in Georgia, Germany and finally Norway, said he knew of civilian airplanes from South America arriving with no passengers but with weaponry and material for the nuclear program. He spoke in the interview of uranium purchased for and transported to Iran by Venezuela.

It’s a small world and few degrees of separation between Chavez and Bin Laden.

      You can believe Iran will nuke Israel eventually, should they get the bomb.

        Living in its cross hairs, I have NO doubt they will use the bomb. There are many reasons for this, but chiefly, their utter belief in the Mahdi makes this a guarantee. Now westerners who know little about Islam and less about Iranian eschatology can pooh pooh this all they want. But those who live in its storm cannot afford such fantasy thinking.

        Therefore – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/05/halting-a-dea

        Up until now Jerusalem has been toeing Washington's dictates, however, the "red line" is closer than ever, and Jerusalem sees the handwriting on the wall – the quartet in Washingon – the POTUS, Hagel, Brennan and Kerry will not do the deed.

      What Hidari says confirms what Bernard Lewis, Raphael Israeli, Reza Kahlili, Harold Rhode, Menashe Amir, Matthias Kuntzel and James Woolsey have been saying about Iran attacking Israel, the US and Europe. Why don't you read what they have to say first and not base your sarcastic statement on ignorance? You can get to the respective articles here: http://madisdead.blogspot.co.il/2013/01/former-ir

      "If you believe this guy, I have a bridge to sell in New York"

      I know huh? Who could believe that an Islamic shia regime would prepare for the mahdi? Crazy, no?

      Who could believe it? It must not be true because all people are really just as rational as I hope they are.

      Are you shia, sunni or leftist?

    He worked at an Airport and he was able to uncover top secret information about Iran's nuclear activity and ties to Al Qaeda??LOL

      he was a diplomat, not some TSA guy or ticket agent.

    The Israeli government should have organized a seminar of Islamic scholars to discuss the validity of Bernard Lewis’s MAD statement “for people with this mindset, M.A.D. is not a constraint; it is an inducement…” . Why haven’t they? At least it would become a topic of discussion, and not almost unknown or a taboo as in today’s climate

    Former Iranian diplomat: ‘Iran would definitely use nuclear weapon on Israel’

      "The Israeli government should have organized a seminar of Islamic scholars to discuss the validity of Bernard Lewis's MAD statement "for people with this mindset, M.A.D. is not a constraint; it is an inducement…" . Why haven't they?"

      Because of the Saudi influence in Middle Eastern Studies, and the complete corruption of our so-called experts who all use the victim card inspired by Ed Said. They say Bernard Lewis is a particular kind of bigot called an "Orientalist" which means to leftist freaks that he comes from the West and assumes that Western culture is superior to Islam or any "other," without any rational (according to delusional people and Muslims) to think that might be the case.

      Actually Lewis is very kind to them, and makes very nuanced presentations. But since he can be quoted making statements that support "Islam-o-phobic" positions, he is also by (their) definition an Islam-o-phobe. All of the people who can offer sane advice on Islam are attacked even in advance of their offering any. There's a lot more people and resources pouring in to lying about Islam than there is spent on telling the truth about it, or offering sane advice to Western leaders.

        Your answer would explain why the US government is reluctant to discuss Bernard Lewis's statement. But Netanyahu, according to Ari Shavit, was given a briefing by Bernard Lewis himself http://www.madisdead.blogspot.co.il/2012/02/cruci
        "A few years ago Netanyahu held an in-depth discussion with Middle East expert Bernard Lewis. At the end of the talk he was convinced that if the ayatollahs obtained nuclear weapons, they would use them. Since that day, Netanyahu seems convinced that we are living out a rerun of the 1930s."

        In addition, in his speech to the UN General Assembly, Netanyahu quoted Bernard Lewis: http://www.madisdead.blogspot.co.il/2012/09/at-un
        "But deterrence may not work with the Iranians once they get nuclear weapons.
        There’s a great scholar of the Middle East, Prof. Bernard Lewis, who put it best. He said that for the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement."

        So from the above, it is clear that Netanyahu is fully aware of the stakes involved. If he mentioned Bernard Lewis at the UN GA why not educate his own population and the world?

          From a political standpoint, Israelis are outgunned by their enemies. That is the first glib answer to remember when pondering these questions, but you are asking the right questions because in the end they may have solutions some day.

          We keep trying. Bernard Lewis is a hero.

    Yes. This is correct. Motive and road map.

    “They are busying themselves with ideological preparations for the arrival of the hidden Imam and are preparing the ground for that in a practical way; for this purpose,"

    More irony from Mo's followers. "Practical" preparation for the being that can't possibly exist, that never gave any rational reason to believe in it.

    "…they are willing to spill much blood and destroy many countries.”

    This sounds very practical to an Islamic supremacist.

    They're all meeting in the same place in the end, with zero degrees of separation.

    One of the delays Iran has is the Suni and Shia war which is not hidden but obvious and
    never focused on by the MSM, this is what has the blood flowing in Islamist countries and
    Mullah Obama is seemingly helping both by action and inaction. Obama is tolerant of human
    rights violations in Iran or anywhere Sharia is pushed, the Shia and Suni debacle is over who
    is pushing hardest and best able to destroy Israel, America and the rest of the Western World.
    Iran in a rush to be out front in creating the new Caliphate would see itself as top of the
    Islamist heap if it detonates and A bomb over Tel Aviv. Time is short and no obsticle to
    the insanity of Islam is on the horizon and it is tough sitting idly by as American politics
    aids and abets what will be a hideous tragedy in lost lives………………….William

      "Obama is tolerant of human rights violations in Iran or anywhere Sharia is pushed, the Shia and Suni debacle is over who is pushing hardest and best able to destroy Israel, America and the rest of the Western World."

      A dedicated leftist only ever expects white imperialist conservatives to pay attention to the rights of others.

      "no one can use nuclear bomb ,as us star war so strong that anyone want to use the bomb they get that bomb in there own country matter of 6 minutes. is all about selling and making mony."

      The fundamental requirement for MAD to work is having rational actors. Shia are the furthest thing from rational that you can find. Those are the most salient points to remember along with the fact that nuclear weapons are very dangerous.
