Iran’s Bid to Buy Banned Magnets Stokes Fears about Major Expansion of Nuclear Capacity


iran-nuclear-facilitiesIran recently sought to acquire tens of thousands of highly specialized magnets used in centrifuge machines, a sign that the country may be planning a major expansion of its nuclear program. Iranian agents sought to buy 100,000 ring-shaped magnets – which are banned from export to Iran under UN resolutions – from China about a year ago.

The magnets could outfit 50,000 new centrifuges, or nearly five times the number that Iran currently operates. “They are positioning themselves to make a lot of nuclear progress quickly,” said a European diplomat.

  1. stop them now or say oooops when they do exactly what they have told everyone they will attempt to do.

    if you think we have a mess on our hands today with Iran… waiting between now and another year and it will be unmanageable like North Korea is today. Except for two issues, economic impact and a major threat to 7 odd million Yidden.

    the man in rome goes down, cham takes his place, the persians rise, southern france burns, persians fall and the Moshiach stands. so many years ago a kabbalist told me that… everyone laughed at him, but he seems to be on some kind of collision course with what is going on today.
