The purpose of Iran’s nuclear program was always to build an atomic weapon, the former deputy speaker of the Islamic Consultative Assembly told Iran-based Iscanews on Sunday, contrasting the Islamic republic’s official position that its nuclear program is and always has been peaceful in nature.
“From the very beginning, when we entered the nuclear activity, our goal was to build a bomb and strengthen the deterrent forces, but we could not maintain the secrecy of this issue, and the secret reports were revealed by the group of hypocrites,” Ali Motahari said, referring to the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
“ I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother.” Ez. 38:21 NIV
According to Motahari, 64, a country that wants to use nuclear power peacefully never starts enrichment but first establishes a reactor and then enters the field of enrichment.
Motahari has a history of controversial and even racist and sexist comments. In 2020, he criticized his country’s anti-American policies, saying that Iran has made anti-Americanism a strategic goal at the expense of developing the country.
“Struggle against America was supposed to be a means for us, not an end, but now it has turned into a goal by itself,” he has said.
