Yet Another Explosion at Iranian Nuclear Site

July 3, 2020

A fire and explosion damaged a centrifuge production plant above Iran’s Natanz nuclear enrichment facility at around 2:00 AM local time on Thursday.

Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, denied that the damage was significant, claiming it took place at an under-construction “industrial shed.”

Despite his claims, Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency published a commentary addressing the possibility of the “industrial shed” being the target of sabotage by enemy nations such as Israel and the US. The Iranian media also blamed foreign enemies for other recent explosions in the country. https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/154184/anotehr-explosion-at-iranian-nuclear-site/

Setback for Iran’s Nuclear Program After Mystery Fire at Centrifuge Assembly Site

July 3, 2020

WASHINGTON – New details of an Iranian nuclear facility damaged in a mysterious fire suggest Thursday’s incident is a much greater setback to Iran’s nuclear ambitions than Tehran has publicly admitted.

The Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security identified the facility as a centrifuge assembly workshop at the Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant in central Iran’s Isfahan province. …

“It took the Iranians a long time to build this workshop,” Institute researcher Sarah Burkhard told VOA Persian in an interview. “Its construction started in 2012 and they only got to a point where they could start operations there in 2018,” she said. …

The AEOI’s photo of the aftermath of the fire, which it said happened at 2 a.m. Thursday local time, showed extensive damage to one end of the workshop, with roof panels charred, exterior walls cracked and doors ripped from their hinges, apparently from the force of an explosion.

“The equipment inside the workshop was meant to be used for making precision measurements in assembling advanced centrifuges that are sensitive machines and difficult to build, because you have to ensure that they are identical,” Burkhard said. “We think the centrifuge equipment likely is not easily replaceable, because the components would be subject to international export controls,” she added. …

The United States also sanctioned Iran’s Centrifuge Technology Company (TESA) in 2011 and since then has further sanctioned international companies in TESA’s procurement network.

U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018, saying it was not tough enough on Tehran, and began unilaterally imposing sanctions aimed at pressuring Iranian leaders to stop a range of perceived malign behaviors. Iran, which denies seeking nuclear weapons, has vowed to resist the U.S. sanctions, which have weakened its economy. Tehran also has been violating a series of limits on its nuclear activities since last year to try to pressure the 2015 deal’s remaining signatories to compensate it for the U.S. sanctions. …

Burkhard also said the damage to the facility was so large that it did not appear to have been caused by an industrial accident. Her colleague David Albright told The New York Times that he believed it was an act of sabotage, because the assembly of centrifuge components in the workshop would have involved few flammable liquids and was unlikely to be dangerous.

After downplaying the incident, Iranian state news agency IRNA issued a warning later Thursday, saying “if there are signs of hostile countries crossing Iran’s red lines in any way, especially the Zionist regime (Israel) and the United States, Iran’s strategy to confront the new situation must be fundamentally reconsidered.” https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/voa-news-iran/setback-irans-nuclear-program-after-mystery-fire-centrifuge-assembly-site

Notice that this explosion is NOT considered to be an accident. Iran cannot be pleased with this or the other explosion about a week ago that allegedly came from an Israeli cyber attack (see BIN: Israeli Cyber-Attack Caused Secret Iranian Nuclear Missile Plant to Explode).

Before going further, perhaps it should be mentioned that the basic purpose of having newer and advanced centrifuges is to get weapon’s grade uranium and/or to use in some nuclear power plants.

Here is some information related to centrifuges:

A gas centrifuge is a device that performs isotope separation of gases. A centrifuge relies on the principles of centripetal force accelerating molecules so that particles of different masses are physically separated in a gradient along the radius of a rotating container. A prominent use of gas centrifuges is for the separation of uranium-235 from uranium-238. The gas centrifuge was developed to replace the gaseous diffusion method of uranium-235 extraction. High degrees of separation of these isotopes relies on using many individual centrifuges arranged in cascade, that achieve successively higher concentrations. This process yields higher concentrations of uranium-235 while using significantly less energy compared to the gaseous diffusion process. …

Modern Zippe-type centrifuges are tall cylinders spinning on a vertical axis, with a vertical temperature gradient applied to create a convective circulation rising in the center and descending at the periphery of the centrifuge. Diffusion between these opposing flows increases the separation by the principle of countercurrent multiplication. …

Effective usage of gas centrifuges were discovered by Pakistan which greatly enhances its capability to produce HEU fuels for both its commercial nuclear power plants and weapons. (Gas centrifuge. Wikipedia, accessed 09/07/19)

Iran wants military domination of the Islamic world. Its nuclear program has long been believed to be part of that.

With its important centrifuge facility in shambles, Iranian leaders must be discussing what to do, and likely how to retaliate, against Israel and/or the USA for this latest explosion.

Iran can be dangerous. Iran may well damage Israel (Isaiah 22:1-14) and even the USA (Iran is very upset with the USA because of sanctions and the Trump Administration’s withdrawal of the nuclear deal that the Obama Administration agreed to). But that will not end well for Iran (cf. Jeremiah 49:34-38).

Jesus warned of a time of wars and rumors of wars (Matthew 24:4-8) called “the beginning of sorrows.”

We look to be in this time.

Jesus also said to “Watch” (Mark 13:37).

What Iran may do next looks to be something to “watch.”

Evangelical support for Donald Trump’s Jerusalem policy BBC asked, “Why do US evangelicals support Trump’s Jerusalem policy?” BBC provided quotes from some believing it has to do with the ‘last days’ while others saying that is not the reason. Hal Lindsey’s book, ‘The Late Great Planet Earth’ is one of the sources pointed to. In this video, Dr. Thiel addresses scriptures related to Jerusalem as well as prophetic ones. He goes over the common ‘fig tree’ interpretation, belief about a ‘Third Temple,’ and statements about animal sacrifices. He explains biblical statements on those subjects as well as the views of certain modern Jewish organizations. This is a video.
Jerusalem, Donald Trump, and Prophecy On December 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump fulfilled a campaign promise related to the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. This brought anger, protests, and rockets from some Palestinians. It also brought condemnation from European allies–it has been claimed to be disruptive and even catastrophic. The Palestinian President (Mahmoud Abbas) said that this pronouncement eliminated the USA as being a fair mediator for a peace deal. Others have claimed that Donald Trump is an end time Cyrus and his pronouncement will lead to a Third Temple in Jerusalem. Is there ever going to be a peace deal? If so, will Europeans be part of it? Is Donald Trump a ‘Cyrus.’ Do the Jews require a Third Temple for sacrifices? Dr. Thiel answer those questions and more in this video.
