Press release – ISJ Conference – Brussels 20.11.2014
The International Committee In Search of Justice (ISJ) disclosed in a press conference in Brussels today (Thursday, Nov 20, 2014) that in the past two decades the Iranian regime has concealed its nuclear military program inside a civil program and has covertly advanced it.
In this conference, ISJ presented the conclusion of its extensive investigation of several months about Iranian regime’s nuclear projects in a 100-page report. According to this investigation, Iran’s nuclear program in the past two decades has been composed of two apparently dissimilar systems; one is a civil system that includes the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and the universities, and the other is a military system that has been the principal part and the clandestine aspect of this program. These two structures, much like two concentric circles, have worked side by side with the nuclear military system at the heart of this program.
The US House of Representatives has voted to approve legislation that will condemn the 'gross human rights violations' committed by the Iranian regime.
The resolution comes just days ahead of the November 24 deadline for world powers to reach a deal with the clerical regime.
The West must ensure it does not agree a weak nuclear deal with the Iranian regime, which has 'no intention' of abandoning its quest for a nuclear bomb, the US House of Representatives has been told.
Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Non-proliferation and Trade, also branded Iran the biggest sponsor of state terrorism since the Islamic revolution in 1979.
The United Nations nuclear agency chief said on Thursday that the Iranian regime had failed to provide explanations regarding its atomic bomb research and called on Tehran to step up cooperation with a long-running investigation.
Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told a meeting of the IAEA’s 35-nation board of governors: “I call upon Iran to increase its cooperation with the agency and to provide timely access to all relevant information, documentation, sites, material and personnel.”
Forty-three senators sent a letter to the White House on Wednesday night warning President Obama not to bypass Congress as the administration nears the deadline for a nuclear deal with Iran.
The letter heralds the stiff opposition that Obama will face from the new Republican-majority Senate if his administration signs a deal with Iran next week – one they consider bad.
It now appears difficult to reach a comprehensive nuclear deal with the Iranian regime by a Nov. 24 deadline but it is not impossible, U.S. Deputy National Security Adviser, Tony Blinken, told American lawmakers on Tuesday.
"Right now, I think it's going to be difficult to get to where we want to go. It's not impossible," Blinken, who is U.S. President Barack Obama's chosen deputy secretary of state, said at his nomination hearing for the diplomatic post.
Saudi Arabia asked On Wednesday the U.N. Security Council to put Hezbollah on its list of "terrorist organizations".

Iranians in New York have staged a rally to condemn human rights violations in the Islamic regime and demand protection for dissidents trapped in Camp Liberty.
The demonstration outside the United Nations headquarters on Tuesday was times to coincide with a UN General Assembly human rights session that approved a resolution expressing 'deep concern' at the soaring number of executions in the regime.
The Islamic State group’s ideology must be undermined, United Nations' Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein has urged.
A single Muslim voice denouncing the terror group's bloodshed could even be more effective than air strikes alone, Mr al-Hussien said.
The Iranian regime has slashed its funding of terrorist groups in the Middle East after its budget was hit by a plunge in oil prices.
The regime is now allocating 25 per cent less to Lebanese Hezbollah and other paramilitary groups dependent on the clerical regime for their cash-flow, Kuwaiti newspaper al Qabas said.
