Social Issues – Iran continues to insist that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only, and after searching for years for evidence showing otherwise, reports are coming in from Mossad, Israel’s Intelligence Service, and a source in U.S. Intelligence, that there is no proof that Tehran is working on a nuclear weapons program. In fact, it is believed that Iran’s program was shut down in 2003.
“Mossad does not disagree with the U.S. on the [Iraninan] weapons program,” an unnamed former senior U.S. Intelligence official told the New York Times. “There is not a lot of dispute between the US and Israeli intelligence communities on the facts.”

While this latest report indicates that Iran is not, in fact, seeking to obtain nuclear weapons, the current sanctions against the country remain in place, and neither the Israeli nor American leaders are shy about “threatening Iran with a military solution to prevent the country’s frustrated nuclear ambitions from seeing the light of day.”
