    Iran has no nuclear weapons program. Iran has already offered to trade its 5% enriched uranium for 20% enriched fuel rods THAT CANNOT BE CONVERTED TO WEAPONS USE!!! The EU and the US refused to trade. Iran would be insane to develop atomic bombs with the US and Israel already nuclear powered. Iran's nuclear power program is designed to give Iran high technology independent of foreign tech and that is what the US and the EU are determined to stop. Iran does pose an existential threat to Zionism, but that threat has nothing to do with nuclear weapons that Iran does not want and does not need. Iran is the strongest international support of Hamas and Hezbollah and that is why Israel and its supporters keep accusing Iran of seeking a nuclear bomb. I am against nuclear weapons period. But Israel's hypocrisy on this issue will inevitably lead to one or several of its enemies to develop a deterrent to Israeli nukes.
