The head of Israels Mossad intelligence agency is 100 percent certain that Iran remains committed to developing a nuclear bomb and believes the international community must change or scrap its nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.
The comments by Yossi Cohen added an influential voice to a global debate over Irans nuclear program ahead of a deadline set by President Donald Trump for toughening the deal. Trump, like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been a fierce critic of the 2015 nuclear deal.
Trump has set a mid-May deadline to reach agreement with the European nations to toughen restrictions on Iran, including by extending the limitations on nuclear activity that are currently set to expire under the deal in several years. If the U.S. and the Europeans cant agree on new punishments that are to Trumps liking, he will withdraw from the deal and re-impose U.S. sanctions on Tehran, the White House has said.
With the clock ticking, Cohen has been holding discussions on the matter and delivered his assessment in a recent closed meeting with senior officials, according to a person who attended the meeting. Cohens analysis signaled Israeli support for Trumps efforts.
Cohen called the nuclear deal a terrible mistake, saying it allows Iran to keep key elements of its nuclear program intact and will remove other restraints in a few years.

But Obama, John Brennan, Susan Rice, Samantha Power and John Kerry says they are NOT. So this story will quickly go away.
Absurd. Did the U.S. go to war with Iraq after Israel bombed their Osirik nuke reactor in 1981? Unshackle their hands, unlike Obama (along with his sending them $150 billion)
You stop Iran now, or you will not be able to stop them later
And in other news, the sun rose, the wind blew and a dog bit the mailman.
Mossad chief ‘100 percent certain’ Iran seeks nuclear bomb
Was there ever any doubt about it ? Only liberals / socialists may be dumb enough to believe otherwise.
More than once, I would suspect. 😁👍
I knew that in the 70’s.
Cue Obama sh*t face smiling. I hate that SOB and every POS in his former orifice administration. Iran should have been pummeled when they took our fellow Americans. Now they can have a bomb. America sure can be retarded and ask for a death wish.
There are always consequences for rejecting what the Founding Fathers gave us and turning to blasphemous points of view out of Europe that were designed to bring back feudalism but with an atheistic twist.
All you have to do is review the X42 Clinton’s efforts to prevent North Korea from going nuclear with payoffs. Oh, Ms. Albright has a hand in all this for when you see her on CNN.
The “Agreed Framework” with North Kora was violated on a daily basis while they were taking our money and energy resources. We gave them money, coal, energy and time to ignore our agreement. Obama set up the same deal with Iran.
Perhaps a more knowledgeable person can tell me why Iran needs 15 thousand plus centrifuges and a heavy water program for peaceful purposes.
Let’s also not forget that China couldn’t get a rocket off the ground until Bill Clinton (X42) took security items out of the State Dept. and put it in the Commerce Dept. and Loral stepped in with our tech to help China including giving them MIRV capability for free - or so I’ve read.
For those who may not know, MIRV stands for “Multiple Independently Re-targetable Vehicles” which basically means that one ICBM nuclear rocket can get over a country and then send 10-12 nuclear bombs to 10-12 targeted cities. Send a few up and we won’t stop many of them.
In case its not clear, IMHO, the Bill Clinton administration took ALL important, possible dual use technology, from the State Dept., gave it to Commerce, allowed Loral to transfer huge amounts of tech to China so they’d end up with ICBMs with MIRV capabilities which have likely been transferred to North Korea and will likely end up in Iran. Any questions?
Sorry Ron. Hillary says hi. All of the forgoing is just my opinion based upon things I’ve read over 30 years. I could be completely mistaken but regardless of my current position I have no intention to commit suicide with two or three bullets to the back of my head or for any reason whatsoever.
If I die an untimley death please look into it. These days it seems that anyone who speaks out can become a target.
Taking my chances ...
[ Iran remains committed to developing a nuclear bomb ]
Gee, ya think? Ezekiel 38 ping
Iran persecutes Christians. But I appreciate your desire to have a nation dedicated to the destruction of America, a nation that has been at war with the US since its founding, to have nuclear weapons.
Like....Duh! Of course they want nuclear bombs. Doesn’t everyone?
I am disagree. I think it’s way past due time to stop nuclear proliferation. North Korea and Iran should have been bombed (Strategic nuclear locations) in 2006.
No, but then we had Karen Not-so-all-bright running the show.
Again, this should have been dealt with over a decade ago.
