Evidence emerging of Rouhani’s radicalism, once approved of hiding Iran nuclear work.

Hassan Rouhani’s radicalism is coming to light.
Despite the widespread enthusiasm in world capitals and the media that there is new hope in Iran because a “reformer” has been “elected,” evidence is continuing to emerge that Hassan Rouhani is exactly what I have portrayed him: a dangerous Radical Shia Muslim who is deeply committed to the Ayatollah Khamenei, and Iran’s nuclear program, and to building atomic bombs in secret.
Consider the latest reporting:
“Years before he became Iran’s president-elect, Hassan Rohani spoke approvingly about concealing his nation’s nuclear program and said that when Pakistan got atomic bombs and Brazil began enriching uranium, ‘the world started to work with them,’” reports Reuters. “The comments offer an intriguing window into the past thinking of Rohani, widely seen as a moderate or pragmatic conservative, whose surprise victory in weekend elections to succeed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was perceived by the United States and other Western powers as positive — at least at first glance.”
“Rohani has said he intends to pursue constructive interaction with the world and ‘more active’ negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, after his predecessor’s belligerence was met with painful international sanctions and military threats from Israel and the United States,” notes Reuters. “Ultimate decisions on Iran’s nuclear program will remain in the hands of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Western diplomats familiar with Rohani’s work as chief nuclear negotiator from 2003 to 2005 told Reuters the 64-year-old cleric was no pushover and had always been firmly committed to Iran’s nuclear program. He was secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council from 1989 to 2005. It was in the autumn of 2004 that Rohani gave a sweeping speech to Iran’s Supreme Cultural Revolution Council called ‘Beyond the Challenges Facing Iran and the IAEA Concerning the Nuclear Dossier.’ In that speech, that is available on the blog Armscontrolwonk.com, Rohani said Iran did not want nuclear weapons.”
“As for building the atomic bomb, we never wanted to move in that direction and we have not yet completely developed our fuel cycle capability,” wrote Rouhani. “This also happens to be our main problem.”
“But he argued in favor of a kind of nuclear fait accompli to force the West to accept Iran’s enrichment capabilities,” noted Reuters. “He also referred to Pakistan’s successful acquisition of nuclear weapons in a positive light.”
“If one day we are able to complete the (nuclear) fuel cycle and the world sees that it has no choice, that we do possess the technology, then the situation will be different,” Rouhani said.
“The world did not want Pakistan to have an atomic bomb or Brazil to have the fuel cycle,” he said. “But Pakistan built its bomb and Brazil has its fuel cycle, and the world started to work with them. Our problem is that we have not achieved either one, but we are standing at the threshold.”
“Rouhani also discussed the decision by Iran to conceal its nuclear activities in the late 1980s and 1990s, when it relied on an illicit nuclear procurement network connected to the father of Pakistan’s atomic weapons program, Abdul Qadeer Khan, to purchase enrichment centrifuge technology. ‘This (concealment) was the intention,’ Rohani said. ‘This never was supposed to be in the open. But in any case, the spies exposed it. We did not want to declare all this.’”
Iranian President Rouhani’s son committed suicide, “ashamed” of father’s Radicalism.

“Behind the smiles and the mirth brought about by Hassan Rouhani’s triumph in the first round of the Iranian presidential election there lurks a personal tragedy: his elder son took his own life in 1992 in protest of his father’s close connection with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah,”reports Ynet News.
“I hate your government, your lies, your corruption, your religion, your double acts and your hypocrisy,” wrote the future president’s son in his suicide note, published in London by exiled Iranian political commentator Ali Reza Nouri, Ynet reports.
“I am ashamed to live in such environment where I’m forced to lie to my friends each day, telling them that my father isn’t part of all of this. Telling them my father loves this nation, whereas I believe this to be not true. It makes me sick seeing you, my father, kiss the hand of Khamenei,” read the letter published in the London-based al-Sharq al-Awsat
“Official Iranian press attributed the young man’s suicide to unrequited love,” reports Ynet.
As has become customary in recent years, this summer will see hundreds of thousands of small children in Gaza enroll in summer camps organized by terrorist groups. Social activities, religious studies and sport competitions aside, the children will engage in what is the undisputed crowning centerpiece of those camps: the semi-military training that includes use of live ammunition and simulated kidnappings of IDF soldiers...
Op-ed: While Israeli teens study science and math, their Palestinian counterparts learn about how evil Jews are
Published: 06.18.13, 11:01 / Israel Opinion
Peace, to be or not to be, that is the question. So far the question doesn't have an answer. However, it does have principals who are in a position to answer it. They, in my opinion, are the Arabs. It is they who have refused to accept the existence of a sovereignJewish state of Israel. Without this there will never be true peace.
There may be a cessation of hostilities, but this does not represent peace. It only serves as a respite, while tension and mistrust simmer until the next round of violence breaks out. Real peace means both sides accept each other and will find ways to foster good relations.
Israel has repeatedly stated its desire for peace, is prepared to make difficult sacrifices to facilitate it. The Arabs on the other hand continue their campaign of Israel's delegitimization and destruction.
US Secretary of State John Kerry has been attempting to get direct negotiations restarted. However, Mahmoud Abbas keeps demanding Israel stop all construction, agree to return to '67 borders, and hand over eastern Jerusalem, which includes Judaism’s holiest site, before he returns to talks. With these repeated precondition demands a breakthrough appears remote with the current Palestinian leadership.
Many believe the best chance for peace is when today's youth become tomorrow’s leaders. The key to achieving this lies in how Palestinian children are raised and educated. There must be a cessation of poisoning their minds with textbooks that teach:
To get a sense of what the next generation might look like a group of young Israelis and Palestinians recently got together at an event called "Dialogue for Peace Project." One of the participants, a young Israeli journalist Lital Shemesh, expressed her reaction to the gathering in an article called "Peace? From a Palestinian Standpoint, There is a Past, There is no Future."
After the group held meetings over several weeks designed to break down barriers and stereotypes, they gathered one final time in Turkey. On the third day of the meeting hard realities emerged. The Israeli group had participants from the left and the right, expressing a range of views. All were willing to discuss areas of possible compromise in order to find common ground for peace with their Palestinian counterparts.
To their shock they discovered no reciprocation on the part of the young Palestinians. "None of them spoke of a separate Palestinianstate, or a two state solution. They all referred to one state, their state," Shemesh explained. Israel's independence was described as the "Nakba" ("tragedy" of Israel's inception). They refused to call suicide bombers "terrorists." Talking escalated into yelling. What had begun with high hopes on the part of young Israelis ended with disillusion and despair.
The young Palestinians reflected views shaped by their educational system, which are reinforced by parents, as well as religious and political leaders.
While the Jewish youth wanted to discuss a future based on compromise and coexistence, all the Palestinians wanted to talk about is the past, since in their view the existence of Israel ruined all hopes for their future. The disheartening conclusion to an event designed to provide hope for a peaceful future leaves one wondering if it will ever happen. What’s clear is the status quo isn't working.
In an attempt to send a strong message to the Palestinians, US Congressman Ron DeSantis (R – Florida) introduced a resolutioncalled the Palestinian Accountability Act in March. The bill is designed to reduce financial aid unless they meet certain conditions. They include: Dismantling terrorist infrastructure, ending incitement and hatred in the media, mosques and schools, cease participation in boycotting Israel, and recognize Israel's right to exist. The bill has eight co-sponsors. Since the Palestinians receive hundreds of millions of dollars annually from the US, the hope is that hitting them in their pocket book might have an impact.
Previous efforts threatening financial support have been met with resistance. They prefer to maintain their agenda of uncompromising hatred and destruction, rather than accept coexistence with the Jewish state, even if it means drastic reductions in much needed financial support. That is a chilling message, which cannot be overstated.
As for peace becoming more possible with the next generation, while Israeli youth learn about science, mathematics, high tech, etc. their Palestinian counterparts learn about how evil Jews are, and why murdering them is viewed as a holy act.
Given this jolt of reality, if you're one of those who believes the best chance for peace is when the current generation of Palestinian leadership is replaced by the next generation, it appears your prospects for winning the lottery are far greater.
"We do not delude ourselves," Netanyahu said during Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting. "The international community mustn't be tempted into wishful thinking. We must remember that in any case, (Supreme Leader) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is the one determining Iran's nuclear policy."
"We must keep in mind that the Iranian leader (Khamenei) disqualified the candidates who did not hold his radical views. Among those he did allow (to run), the candidate who was seen as the least affiliated with the regime was elected. But we are still talking about someone who refers to the State of Israel as the 'great Zionist Satan,'" the PM told the cabinet meeting.
