Duff on Press TV: Iran Asks for Sequester of Israel’s Nuclear Weapons


Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today, believes Israel’s refusal to join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has been a decades-long issue, adding that it is time for Iran to use its leverage to bring Tel Aviv to the table on a number of issues, including its nuclear weapons, which are a threat to peace in the Middle East.

The remarks came in reaction to Gholam-Hossein Dehqani, the director-general for political and international security affairs at Iran’s Foreign Ministry, saying that the international community must mount pressure on Israel to join the NPT unconditionally and put its nuclear activities under the surveillance of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

“The real issue with this statement made in Vienna was that the [US President Donald] Trump administration is again reiterating accusations against Iran about Iran’s nuclear program, accusations none of the investigatory agencies at all support, and still bringing these out. Israel is still continuing to use these groundless findings of their own against Iran as an attempt to bring…forces against Iran, including Saudi Arabia,” Duff told Press TV in an interview on Thursday.

“The real issue is it is going to come down to regional peace and in the long-run there is not going to be regional peace when we have a nuclear power in the center of the Middle East involved in its many controversies as it is,” he noted.

  1. Israel telling the truth regarding their nuclear weapons and the fact that they have deployed said weapons; well, well. The world holds its’ breath. Not even their paid cut-outs tell the truth. Orwell’s fiction becomes reality. War is peace, Slavery is freedom and Ignorence is truth.

  2. Mr. Duff: Sage observations, as usual (about Israeli nuclear insanity etc.) — especially your observation that Trump’s craziness might soon be the straw that breaks the back of Mideast insanity.

    In an insane world, only the crazy people CAN be sane. But that’s no guarantee. Believe me. I know. ;-).

  3. This is an idea that is way long past due. I wait with baited breath for the spin this administration will put on this. Probably they will simply ignore it publicly and fight it tooth and nail in the UN. Previous attempts to publicize Israels nukes have been met with lies and obfuscation. I’m sure Trump will continue this ‘policy’. At least this will (possibly) shine some light on this situation, but I’m not optimistic. It would help if Russia would help bring this subject to public awareness, but I’m not confident they will either.

  4. As long as the major news organs around the world remain controlled by Zionists nothing will change. These same oligarchs, and this is my hypothesis, have bribed their way into every government save for a few which are easily identified by the bomb craters that cover their lands, or are suffering inhuman sanctions.
    Laws against monopolies, laws against dual citizens holding government jobs should be the rule. 2% of the population hold 30% of jobs in finance, food distri ution, education, judicial, broadcasting, and the list goes on.

  5. The irony of all this is that Israel is constantly running their mouths about Iran’s potential for nuclear weapons while they, Israel, possess illegal nuclear weapons and technology, likely stolen from the U.S. who first invented them with many participants on the Manhattan Project with sympathies to Israel. They give their middle finger to the non proliferation treaty and refuse any international inspections of their facilities and even refuse to admit they have them at all. They are the last country in the world one would want to have these dangerous weapons because they show distain and contempt for the rule of international law which they give their middle finger to every day. The U.S. demonstrated great cowardice early on when they did nothing to shut down the nuclear program in Israel before it got to the stage of development today. All aid to this rogue nation should be shut down until this rogue nation acknowledges and complies with all international law and treaties and until they stop the genocide of Palestine and theft of lands. Israel should be forcibly occupied by an international occupation force to compel it to comply with the rule of law. Nothing else will work but force. This what they use daily on others and the only kind of language they understand: FORCE.

    • Israel is just an arm of the 3 headed hydra or Jahbulon. and compared to prior centuries it’s behavior is identical. I initially intended to write it was improving but the genocide of of native Americans, north and south combined, also wasn’t done in a decade, more like a century. At this rate they could decimate the middle east in the same time. Depleted uranium is doing wonders for them.
