Dear Israeli Press: On Iran, Whats The Big Deal?

2 Apr

The latest WSJ article which stated that Iran was keeping its 20% enriched Uranium stockpile below Israel’s red line made headlines in Israel today. Most of the Hebrew as well as English language press published it as if it only happened recently.

But in reality this is old news-it belongs to August last year.

Iran has been putting parts of its stockpile of 20% enriched uranium beyond military use before Bibi’s public declaration of his red line against Iran which was drawn with a big red marker in the UN on the 27th of September.

His red line stood at 240 kilos of 20% enriched uranium.

Iran had already started putting parts of its stockpile of 20% enriched uranium beyond military use by converting it into fuel plates since August 2012 a month after the EU started its oil sanctions against Iran.

In fact Ehud Barak used this tactic by the Iranians as a reason to publicly justify distancing his position away from that of Netanyahu on Iran last September.

So there is nothing new about this development.

What could be happening and of course this is only an assumption, is that both US and Israeli governments are preparing for a possible deal with Iran.

By highlighting such positive initiatives taken by Iran (Khamenei putting enriched uranium beyond use of military use) they could be preparing public opinion for a deal.

Or its just possible that the WSJ was late in picking up this story and our press in Israel followed suit.

Who said sanctions against the Iranian regime are not impacting its nuclear policies ?
