Iran nuclear deadline to expire

 

After inaugurating the heavy water plant, Mr Ahmadinejad
again said Iran would never abandon its nuclear program, but that
nuclear weapons were not its goal.

“Basically, there is no talk of nuclear weapons,” he said.

“There is no discussion of nuclear weapons. We are not a

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are also looking into the

locations. This figure, which was 140 on Tuesday, is rising daily. And

Like IRANIANS
They have been trained by thier Emmaams and Islamic culture, standing against unjust

Israeli officers regard Hezbollah fighters, many trained in Iran, as
highly motivated but not careless of their lives in the manner of
Palestinian militants often intent on glory through death. Mr Goksel
said: “Hezbollah is not afraid of the Israelis. After 18 years fighting
Israeli troops, they see them as vulnerable human beings who make
