SECRET U.S. DIPLOMATIC CABLE: MOSSAD DIRECTOR MEIR DAGAN: U.S. MUST ACT NOW TO STOP IRAN
Secret Diplomatic Cable
from the Embassy in Tel-Aviv Israel, dated 05/06/2005 , published by the publisher Wikileaks, reveals MOSSAD director Meir Dagan
(08/02 - 12/09) states to CODEL
(Congressional Delegation), Lieberman
(Senator, CT), the U.S. must act now to stop Iran. Again Israel is asserting it's power and influence via the MOSSAD. This cable also reveals the "Israel Equation", which Meir Dagan neither admits or denies. Cable also reveals the steps the U.S. can take to end this and Iran's involvement with Terrorist groups. 2001 the U.S. sustained one of the worst terrorist attack's in history. Shortly afterward the U.S. lead the War Against Terror. Meir Dagan, via the use of psychological tactics, is trying to persuade the U.S. to take action against Iran via Iran's involvement with terrorist organizations. This is also an example of the psychological "Fear" card being played by Meir Dagan.
In his meeting with CODEL, Lieberman on May 2, Meir Dagan, Director of Mossad, laid out steps that he said the United States should take to block Iran's efforts at acquiring and producing nuclear weapons. Dagan also presented his assessments of Iran's support for Hizballah and Palestinian terrorist organizations and the political position of Palestinian President Abbas, as well as the current situation in, and future of, Iraq. The delegation, consisting of Senator Joseph Lieberman and staff aide Fred Downey, was accompanied by the Ambassador and emboffs.
IRAN'S REASONS FOR PURSUING NUCLEAR WEAPONS
Iran has three reasons for pursuing nuclear weaponry. The first is to secure the position of the current Iranian regime. He said that Iran has drawn a bad lesson from the experiences of North Korea, and it now believes that if it can create nuclear weapons, the rest of the world will have no choice but to leave Iran alone. Second, the Iranian regime also hopes that a nuclear capability would change the country's position in the Middle East, leaving it able to force its will upon neighboring countries.
THE ISRAEL EQUATION REVEALED
The third reason Dagan elaborated is what he termed the "Israel equation." Iran believes that Israel has nuclear weapons, and thus Iran must go nuclear as a balancing force in the region. Note: Dagan does not deny this. He avoids the subject altogether. With Iraq no longer being a Military force in the middle east, only Iran is left as a balancing force. With Iran taken out, the only force that remains is Israel and the "Israel Equation"
IRAN'S NUCLEAR AMBITIONS AND HOW TO END THEM
In Dagan's estimation, the world has reached a critical point in relations with Iran. Iran is now close to solving the technological problems regarding aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle. From the point that those problems are solved, it is just a matter of time before Iran will acquire a nuclear bomb. At the same time that the regime is working to create enriched uranium, it is also attempting to create the delivery mechanism for such fissile material, and may already have such weapon systems. The one weakness Dagan saw in Iran's nuclear ambitions is that its projects to create centrifuges are centralized.
Very interesting how Dagan found the one weakness in Iran's nuclear ambitions. The weakness being the centrifuges are centralized. 2010 the Stuxnet Virus infectect 1,000 of Iran's centrifuge. A complete report & PDF of Stuxnet is available via ISIS (Institute For Science And International Security. This is also proof that back in 2005, the MOSSAD was considering possible covert attacks/operations against Iran.
At this point, Dagan said, the world must stop Iran from creating enriched uranium. He laid out several steps that the United States can take to this end. Dagan said that the first and most important step is bringing the Iranian nuclear issue to the United Nations Security Council as soon as possible, and preventing what he characterized as a flood of technology into Iran.
Iranian nuclear scientists must not be allowed to participate in conferences with European or American scientists. This may or may not be a subtle clue into the killings of Iran's Nuclear Scientists. Note: CNN, January 11, 2012, Who's Killing Iran's Nuclear Scientists? Dagan mentioning about Iran's Nuclear Scientist's shows concern by the MOSSAD. It would be logical, in a covert war against Iran that the MOSSAD would target some of Iran's Nuclear Scientists. Until further proof is obtained, the question remains, did the MOSSAD Assassinate 3 of Iran's Nuclear Scientists while a 4th survived an assassination attempt.
Dagan also said, second a system of sanctions must be created to put economic pressure on Iran. Dagan said that Iran's dependence on oil imports due to its lack of refinery capacity is one factor that can be taken into account when considering sanctions. Sanctions against Iran would also, Dagan said, create pressure on Iranian opposition groups to act against the regime. The United States must encourage different groups to become more serious in their efforts to undermine the regime, Dagan said, citing the Solidarity movement in Poland of the 1980s as an example of such opposition pressure helping to bring down a regime. Dagan said that a large portion of Iranians is pro-American, especially in the cities, which account for 40 percent of the country's population. Dagan is hoping that the sanctions pressure Iranian opposition groups into bringing about regime change in Iran. This would most likely be accomplished via protests, uprisings, of the opposition.
IRAN SUPPORTING TERRORIST GROUPS
Even without a nuclear capability, Iran currently poses a threat to the stability of the Middle East through its support of terrorist organizations, Dagan asserted. According to Dagan, Iran has supported terrorist action against Israel through Hizballah and encouraged recruitment, both directly and indirectly, through organizations such as Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. Two specific branches of Hizballah, Dagan said, gather intelligence and launch terror activities. Iranians, themselves, are directly attempting to recruit Arab-Israelis, while at the same time encouraging Hizballah to recruit members of Fatah and other groups. Dagan said that Palestinian Islamic Jihad has been receiving money from Iran based on the number of terror attacks that it carries out. Dagan warned that Iran has also grown closer to Hamas. He said that Iran supports Hamas partly out of ideological, anti-Israel views, and partly in an attempt to curb Israel,s influence and to expand its own influence in the Middle East. Dagan is playing the psychological "Fear Card" again.
IRAN AND THE FUTURE OF IRAQ
The subject of Iran again came up in Dagan's assessment of the situation in Iraq. Iran has played a negative role in Iraq because it hopes to see the state dominated by Shia, he said, who would in turn be dominated by Iran. Dagan said that Iran is encouraging Iraqi groups close to the regime's ideology, such as radical Shia groups that are participating in the new political structure of Iraq. Iran feels besieged by the American presence in neighboring Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan and has, he charged, allowed Al Qaeda members to take harbor in or transit through Iran. Dagan characterized his view of Iraq as optimistic based on the economic growth, and improved services and living conditions, in the country. He conditioned his optimism on the new government's ability to recruit the support of different factions, such as the Kurds and Sunni, and to fight effectively against terrorist elements such as Zarqawi. Through terrorist actions against Iraqis, he said, Zarqawi's forces have tried to discourage people from participating in the system and have attempted to create a rift between Shia and Sunni groups.
Through out the years, the MOSSAD has established itself amongst the "Elites". Isreal's power and influence have also grown by leaps and bounds due to covert operations. For years, Iran has stood in Israel's way of middle east superiority. Israel via the MOSSAD are waging a covert war against Iran so that Israel can gain the middle east superiority. Does Israel have nuclear weapons? The cable reveals the "Israel Equation" and Dagan does not deny it. Did the MOSSAD Assassinate 3 of Iran's Nuclear Scientists? The cable reveals that the MOSSAD are already involved in Iran. Dagan also showed at least some concern about Iran's Nuclear Scientists by stating "Iranian nuclear scientists must not be allowed to participate in conferences with European or American scientists" Again, logically, in a covert war against Iran, most likely the MOSSAD would target certain Nuclear Scientists for assassination. The evidence suggests that the MOSSAD is guilty of or played a part in the assassination of 3 Iranian Nuclear Scientists. The cable also reveals the pschological tactics that the MOSSAD is using to convince the world of the evils of Iran's nuclear agenda.
