New Iranian Propaganda Film Purports to Expose ‘Mossad Operations’ (VIDEO)
As last-minute nuclear talks between Iran and the West reach a critical stage, Iranian mouthpiece, Press TV, has released a transparent psy-ops film that allegedly discloses the Mossad’s intel operation against Tehran’s nuke program, Israel’s Ch. 2 News reported Sunday.
“The Mossad is like the devil – you expel him from the door, and he returns through the window. You need to be careful all the time,” according to one head of Iran’s nuclear project appearing in the psuedo-documentary, “Covert War.”
Meanwhile, away from the cameras, US Secretary of State John F. Kerry met Sunday morning in Vienna with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s representative at the talks. It was their fifth meeting since Kerry arrived Thursday night.
On Sunday, at his weekly cabinet session, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told ministers that he had been updated on the talks’ progress a day earlier by Kerry.
“We are anxiously monitoring developments in these talks,” Netanyahu said. “We are holding discussions with the representatives of other major powers and are presenting them with a vigorous position to the effect that Iran must not be allowed to be determined as a nuclear threshold state,” a statement from his bureau read.
Netanyahu said at the cabinet meeting that “There is no reason why [Iran] should be left with thousands of centrifuges that could enable it to enrich uranium for a nuclear bomb in a short time.
“Neither is there any reason why Iran should continue to develop intercontinental missiles, which could carry nuclear warheads, and thereby threaten the entire world. Therefore, no agreement at all would be preferable to a bad agreement that would endanger Israel, the Middle East and all of humanity,” the PM said.
However, “Considering the short time left until the deadline and number of issues that needed to be discussed and resolved, it is impossible to reach a final and comprehensive deal by Nov. 24,” ISNA quoted an unnamed member of Iran’s negotiating team as saying.
While, in the film, Israel’s supposed espionage is dismissed as bothersome and incompetent, Iran has blamed Israel, the US, other western countries for a series of mysterious deaths of nuclear scientists, debilitating cyber attacks, including the now famous “Stuxnet,” and explosions, equipment breakdowns and other mishaps at several research and production centers alleged to be weaponizing nuclear material over the last five years.
In the film, two Iranian men tell how they were recruited to aid Israel, Ch. 2 said.
The Mossad allegedly tried to “turn” one interviewee, Amir, with a female agent offering him money while he was vacationing in Thailand. The agent, according to the report, asked him to surveil and photograph a house in Tehran, which later turned out to be the home of a nuclear engineer who was killed.
The second interviewee, Hussein Kazam Darwish said a stark Mossad warning dissuaded him from working with them.
“If you tell anyone what happened here, we have people who will catch you,” a Mossad agent told him, as he pointed to his neck and made a slashing motion, Darwish claimed.
Sharing details of the deal under discussion with The Jerusalem Post on the eve of the deadline, Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit.
