The West says Iran is making a nuclear bomb. Tehran says they’re treating cancer. This compelling investigation gets right to the heart of the maelstrom, interrogating facts, falsehoods and shocking allegations.
Global diplomatic tensions are rapidly mounting around Iran’s nuclear ambitions. This compelling investigation gets right to the heart of the maelstrom, interrogating facts, falsehoods and shocking allegations. “We have one million patients struggling with cancer and they need regular isotopes”, argues Iran’s ambassador for the IAEA, Dr Ali Soltanieh. Whatever the truth, Israel is growing increasingly twitchy. Yet Ronen Bergen, an expert on the Israeli secret service, insists that if it had been up to Israel, Iran would have had an atom bomb years ago. He describes how during the 1970s, “Israel was knowingly helping Iran to build the vehicle for a nuclear bomb”. Today, Netanyahu is insisting that, “Israel must reserve the right to defend itself”. As global tension mounts, Iran isn’t shying away from fighting talk. The suggestion of interference in their nuclear plans is met with a chilling riposte: “We will teach them a lesson they will never forget in history”.
