I have the feeling that people are wondering what will happen next.
If Iran constructs a nuclear weapon, if Turkey also becomes a nuclear state, if a caliphate is created. If, if, if …
And now I will discuss the facts, without any ifs, and I hope there will be no questions.
The fact is that in Islam, there are martyrs, ready to die for Allah.
The fact is that the Mujahedeen are fighting at the behest of Allah.
For even the most left-wing supporters and defenders of the Sharia and Islam in the Western world agree with this.
The fact is that Islamic government and the Western way of thinking are different.
The fact is that Muslims enjoy the beautiful gifts of Western democracy when they need them. But they quickly return to the Islamic way after they reach their goals.
I think everyone will agree these facts — the axioms on the basis of which I will discuss the problem of Islamic nuclear capability.
Let’s start with a new challenger in the Islamic nuclear club: Turkey.
Investment in the development of a proton accelerator in the Nuclear Research Center in Ankara amounts to 45 million lire.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke about his country’s desire to create its own nuclear power and the double standards faced by Iran in solving this problem.
“Those who do have nuclear power criticize our neighbor Iran. Meanwhile, each country has the right to peaceful nuclear energy. And it should be respected. On the one hand,” Erdogan said, “they do not notice the flaws in the safety of nuclear power plant in Armenia, they pay no attention to Israel’s nuclear program and, on the other hand, they create a crisis around Iran. This is unfair. Every country should have the right and a safe way to use the atom for peaceful purposes.”
The Turkish Prime Minister also noted that his country is to build two nuclear power plants by 2023. Moreover, Turkey’s first nuclear power plant will be built by the Russians. Construction of NPP “Akkuyu” in the province of Mersin in the south will be based on the principle of “build-operate-transfer”. The project cost is $20 billion. The first concrete in the foundation of the future nuclear power plant is planned to be poured in 2013.
That’s it. Yet another Islamic country with nuclear power.
At the same time, Iran has begun to develop its own nuclear submarines. The use of nuclear energy as a fuel for submarines is not beyond the program of peaceful uses of nuclear technology, and is practiced in most countries.
“Right now we are at the initial stages of construction of nuclear submarines,” said the deputy commander of the Iranian Navy, Rear Admiral Abbas Zamin. Speaking about Iran’s growing capabilities in the design and construction of various types of submarines, Zamin said that the Islamic Republic is taking its first steps toward creating nuclear submarine fuel.
Of course he is liar.
And it’s all happening at a time when Iran threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, and has offered every kind to help Turkey and Azerbaijan. By the way, for several weeks there was a conflict between the Armenian and Azerbaijani armed forces. Military and civilian population were killed on both sides. And it all started after the departure of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from the Caucasus region.
I do not know to whom Mrs. Clinton has talked in Baku and Yerevan, but the fact is that on the day she flew to Turkey, the shooting began, and it grew into a larger conflict.
On the evening of June 12, the Knesset held a special meeting on Israel’s recognition of the genocide of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire (1915-1918). The initiators of the discussion were members of Zahava Galon (Meretz), Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) and Professor Aryeh Eldad (Ichud Leumi). Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin supported this proposal and provided for a separate discussion in the plenary session.
The Chairman of the parliamentary coalition, Zeev Elkin, one of the most consistent supporters of recognition of the Armenian genocide, said in his speech: “For decades, for whatever reason, the question of recognition of the tragedy of the Armenian people has not even been on the agenda. In recent years, we could seriously alter this situation — this topic has not only ceased to be uncomfortable, but it was at the center of a lively parliamentary debate. For the first time in the history of the Israeli parliament, there was held a discussion, open to the public, in the Committee on Education. The Knesset is obliged to bring this process to its logical conclusion: the official recognition of the Armenian Genocide.” Elkin added that “the State of Israel, calling for recognition from the world of the historical injustices done to the Jewish people, cannot act differently in regard to the Armenians, for the sake of short-term political interests. Unfortunately, Israel is one of the last Western countries that still does not recognize the terrible tragedy of the Armenian people. But better late than never.” (IzRus)
In this situation, imagine a brutal Erdogan with “the peaceful atom.”
Add to that Iran’s nuclear submarines, and the cooperation of these countries. The U.S. removed Turkey from the list of countries that may receive sanctions if they do not stop cooperating with Iran.
The Iranian government and official media keep saying that the supreme spiritual leader has banned making a nuclear bomb. But has he banned the use of the nuclear submarine as a weapon of suicide bombing? If Iran has diesel-powered submarines, what would keep them from using nuclear ones? And why can’t Turkey do the same?
