Iran Foreign Minister: Killing of Fakhrizadeh had ‘serious indications of Israeli role’

Javad Zarif Iran Minister Foreign Affairs

Iran’s top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahavadi, was killed on Friday near Tehran, Iran’s Defense Ministry announced on state television.

State media said the killing appeared to be an assassination.

Iran foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on on Twitter that this attack had “serious indications of Israeli role” and urged the international community to “condemn this act of state terror.” 

Fakhrizadeh was the leader of Iran’s military nuclear program.

James Carafano, leading expert in national security and foreign policy challenges, told SaraACarter.com that he is unsure of the future with Iran under a Biden administration.

“The Israelis don’t know really what to expect from a Biden team. Regional developments are on their best trajectory ever with Iran hamstrung by sanctions, Arab nations normalizing with Israel and radical Islamists under pressure across the region,” said Carafano. “The smart play for the U.S. would be to continue to advance policies in that direction. There is a real question over whether Biden team would do that.”

In 2018, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, announced that the Mossad, the national intelligence agency of Israel, had obtained 100,000 files from Iran’s secret nuclear archives and showed a photograph of Fakhrizadeh.

“This is how Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, head of Project Amad … Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh,” Netanyahu said.

The files retrieved by Mossad focused on the secret Iranian nuclear program that was developed from 1999 to 2003 called Project Amad, which was led by Fakhrizadeh. When Iran entered the 2015 nuclear deal, it denied the program existed.

After taking office, Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, winning praise from Netanyahu but impairing relations between the U.S. and Iran.

President-elect Joe Biden has said he would attempt to restore the 2015 Iran nuclear deal–provided Iran were to return to its commitments as well.

During the campaign, Biden talked about rejoining the Iran nuclear deal.

Carafano said that Biden’s plans are “a lot more complicated that it sounds.”

“The right answer is to continue maximum pressure until Iran agrees to a better deal. Israel, can’t count on the U.S. doing that,” he said. “So they would to make sure Iranian interest and capabilities were weakened as much as possible.”

He added, “There is no question that with the prospects of a Biden presidency, the Israelis would want to do everything possible to be in the strongest position.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
