New International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director-General Yukiya Amano may have been the candidate of choice for Western nations, and in particular Israel, but he sought to assure the world today that he would remain independent and would seek to de-politicize the office.
In particular, Amano noted that going through the IAEA’s documents he didn’t see any evidence that Iran was trying to develop nuclear weapons. The IAEA had repeatedly certified that Iran was not diverting any of its civilian program’s enriched uranium to any other purpose, but outgoing chief Mohamed ElBaradei claimed to have a “gut feeling” that Iran secretly wanted the technology.
Amano seems less inclined, at least so far, to rely on his gut and is looking for hard evidence to back up the allegations by Western nations in general and Israel in particular, that the Iranians have a covert program.
He did however claim that the Iranian government had an ‘obligation’ to abandon its civilian program, despite the lack of evidence of anything untoward in the program, citing demands from the UN Security Council. Those demands are separate from any Iranian obligations under the IAEA’s protocols however, under which Iran would seem to have every right to civilian energy generation.

Israel created the impression that the next holocaust is from Iran and USA obviously believes it.
Israel's game has not yet been discovered by the gullible congress and White house.
Israel is using an imaginative threats to get new latest weapons technology from USA and money as well as testing US wits as long as the weapons and money keeps flowing the game remains credible.
where on earth a small nation has humiliated a powerful USA time and time………
Like Bush said foul me once shame on you foul me twice shame on me now haw many times Israel has fouled USA is beyong idiocy. Like Spinrad said there must be a Hebrew word for it.
The proper Jewish or Yiddish word would be "Chutzpah", meaning "Shameless audacity".
How is it that articles from Haaretz, an Israeli paper, were censored in all the main stream media and alternate media in the US, including Antiwar.com. (June 17) "Mossad: Iran will have Nucelar Bomb by 2014" and also "Israel Can't Make up it's Mind About Iran Nuclear Timetable" . These two articles show how intelligence has been falsified for years by the neo-cons and Zionists of Israel and the US to sway public opinion for their political gain. It is a very powerful group that can accomplish this, probably AIPAC, but they goofed! It's all over Google. President Obama and Hillary have both groveled to AIPAC since running for the presidency. He has continued the Bush line of propaganda against Iran, even stating that they are building nuclear weapons, even though our own CIA, the Russians, and the IAEA say there is no evidence of that. __The US would have better relations with Iran if Obama stopped with the "nuke" statements
The recent huge demonstrations in Iran help put a face on the people of Iran; one that has been largely censored out by propaganda machinery of the US and Israel. When the people of Iran are seen as ordinary people who have big gripes with their government, they become more like us and at that point most people start to realize that we should not be attacking them out of some fear of non-existent nuclear weapons as happened in Iraq.
