It's a pity that Haaretz decided to publish here Bar-El's article instead of a better article in the printed issue today written by Reuven Pdahatzur about Muhamad El-Baradei with the title:" Not worth the Nobel prize". El-Baradei said in an interview on CNN 2 weeks ago that there is no information about an active nuclear program in Iran and thus questioned his and his organisation's relevancy and good name. It contradicts even his own organisation's estimates in the last several years. Baradei's evaluations are the only base to the decisions of the UN regarding sanctions against Iran. It's difficult to know what causes this strange behaviour of Al-Baradei. Mr. Pdahatsur says that it might be from personal reasons. The Americans opposed his reelection for a third time and he wants to get back at them by supporting Iran. But maybe he wants his organisation to be neutral and not get in confrontations with Iran. Very brave person!
