Post Israel killed Iran's top nuclear scientist with remote sniper rifle: report

Israel killed Iran's top nuclear scientist with remote sniper rifle: report
By: Monique Beals - The Hill News - 09-19-21

Israeli agents killed Iran’s top nuclear scientist late last year using a remote-controlled machine gun and artificial intelligence, according to a report from The New York Times.

Iranian intelligence knew an attack was likely against Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, but major breaches of security protocols enabled the assassination, sourced told the Times.

On the day of the killing, Nov. 27, Fakhrizadeh insisted he drive his wife from their vacation home near the Caspian Sea to a country home in Absard.

Though security measures were in place to protect Fakhrizadeh along the way, an Israeli assassin was able to identify and assassinate him from 1,000 miles away using a satellite-controlled machine gun capable of shooting up to 600 rounds per minute, the Times reported.

Fakhrizadeh had been a top target of Israel for more than a decade, as the country viewed him as the leader of Iran's clandestine efforts to build a nuclear bomb.

“Remember that name,” former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a 2018 news conference, according to the report. “Fakhrizadeh.”

A previous attempt to assassinate Fakhrizadeh was compromised and called off in 2009.

Israeli agents rushed to carry out the assassination late last year after then-President-elect Joe Biden promised to return to the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement. Israel worried the Biden administration would oppose the assassination, as it could further hamper negotiations with Iran.

Israel has carried out various attacks on Iranian nuclear-related sites since 2004, and its agents have assassinated five of Fakhrizadeh's colleagues since 2007, the Times reported.


A Statement by George Orwell:
Don't mourn the loss of your freedoms. Remember,
Orwell warned this would come.
Your freedoms were not meant to last forever.

(That's pretty said isn't it.)

David Krieger once stated:
Krieger confronts us with the naked reality of The Bomb. The questions he raises are: What is the value of poetry in the face of weapons of mass annihilation?
His poem: "When the Bomb became our God
Like the Nobel Poet Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, who wrote in 1913: “The small truth has words that are clear; the great truth has great silence”, Krieger believes that “Within the awful shattering chaos of war, lives a still and silent seed of peace.” The seed of our existence and essence. — A powerful collection of poems.
“When the Bomb became our God
We loved it far too much,
Worshipping no other gods before it.
When the bomb became our god
We lived in a constant state of war
That we called peace.”
Another: People of the Bomb:
“The bomb may have ended the war,
but only if history is read
like a distant star. If only the sky
had not turned white and aged.
If only time had not bolted to change course,
If only the white flags had flown before
the strange storm.”

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
