Iran Slams Western Double Standards as Israel Expands ‘Nuclear Bomb Factory’

Satellite images reveal Israel quietly expanding secretive Dimona nuclear site

Amid ongoing tensions between Iran and the Western Bloc countries over Tehran’s partial withdrawal from its commitment to limit its uranium enrichment activities, which could potentially pave the way for the country to become the world’s tenth nuclear weapons state, the Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has accused Western powers of hypocrisy over reports of Israel’s expansion of its Dimona nuclear plant.

Dimona is the only nuclear facility in the Middle East which produces weapons grade uranium - leading Zarif to refer to it as the region’s only ’nuclear bomb factory.’

Of the nine countries which currently possess nuclear weapons, four have done so without being signatories of the Treaty on Non Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), including Israel, Pakistan, India and North Korea. Of theses, only North Korea has been singled out for criticism in the West with its status as a nuclear weapons state arbitrarily deemed unacceptable by the Western powers.

Iran has in much the same way viewed in the West as an unacceptable prospective nuclear weapons state, as its development of such weapons would directly contravene Western interests in the Middle East.

The fact that Israel’s own very large nuclear weapons program has been largely condoned and suffered no similar Western pressure or criticism, however, has been highlighted by Iranian sources repeatedly as a gross double standard and an indicator that the Western position on nuclear weapons states is shaped by conformity with Western interests rather than any less arbitrary standard.

With Western leaders repeatedly expressing concern at the expansion of Iran’s uranium enrichment, Foreign Minister Zarif rhetorically questioned whether U.S. President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were even a little "concerned" at the Israeli expansion of Dimona. This appeared to be an effort to highlight the inherent double standards Iran and Israel were being held to.

Iranian officials have threatened in the past to withdraw the country from the NPT - the only legal barrier to development of nuclear arms - in order to pursue the development of a nuclear deterrent. The country also threatened in January 2021 to block inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Iran is currently enriching uranium at a rate of half a kilogram, although only at 20 percent purity where a level of 90 percent or higher is needed to develop nuclear weapons. It has agreed to roll back its nuclear development in exchange for a relaxing of Western economic sanctions which were meant to have been lifted permanently under the terms of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal in exchange for Iran restricting its nuclear activities, but were reimpose partially in 2016 and more fully from 2018.

Iran has repeatedly sought to use it nuclear program to exert pressure on the West to roll back economic warfare efforts against the country, although failing this the possibility has not been ruled out by analysts that it could seek to develop nuclear arms to equip its large arsenal of ballistic missiles and gain a degree of strategic parity with Israel.


  1. If you are surrounded by 500 million people who would want nothing more than your total annihilation would you not protect yourself and provide sufficient “deterrent”? It would be stupid not to.

    Why does Singapore spend nearly 15% of its GDP on Defence? Doesn’t it have “friendly” ASEAN neighbors? Israel spends less than 6% even though it is surrounded by less than friendly “brothers”.

    1. as usual you just blabber, ignoring the article's premise that the US double standards towards Israel & Iran have been blatant

    2. Am I obliged to answer for or defend USA?

    3. you have been sucking Israel's circumcised dick, wakakaka, which is as good as sucking Yank's dick

  2. no more jaw jaw with bully state now under ah joe, iran must cepat cepat go kiss bully kingdom emperor xi ass n get ready for war war.

    1. Bloody mindless warmonger of the f*cked order!

    2. ah joe will whack the muslim kao kao, ccp now look forward 922.

    3. Pray to yr god!

      Sleepy Joe ain't no trump & been manipulated by Hawks to start the US war campaigns all-over the world - to hide the despicable social conditions happened at home turf.

      U might be right that 911 would be a considered plot, to reenact trump's failed maga!

  3. The Blogger must be sucking Mullah cock while he wrote above post.

    Israel's all-but-declared nuclear arsenal has never been used to threaten its neighbours. Israel is surrounded by 500 Million hostile Muslims and Arabs, and the Nukes are an ultimate deterrent, never been used as an aggressive threat.

    Iran, on the other hand has a declared national policy calling for the complete destruction of Israel.

    "Iran's supreme leader on Friday called Israel a “cancerous tumour” that “will undoubtedly be uprooted and destroyed”.

    You have to believe Iran's Supreme Religious leader ( Iran's EVIL Religious leader) when he says it.

    In that context, it is obvious the intention of Iran's Mullah Bomb.
    It is intended to be an aggressive , threatening weapon.

    No double standards at work here.

    An Iranian Mullah Bomb will be aggressive and threatening weapon.

    So severe steps taken NOW to prevent the Mullah Bomb from becoming a reality are a necessity, not Double Standards.
