Protect the Levant in Case Egypt Flakes on Oil

IAF drones are reportedly patrolling the vast blue above the country’s gas fields in the Mediterranean Sea on charge of security concerns, citing Hezbollah. Lebanon has been complaining in a world forum about the Leviathan (16 trillion cubic feet) and Tamar (estimated 8.7 trillion cubic feet) oil wells, of the enormous Levant Basin Province. Together, the two Israeli sites are twice as big as the British fields in the North Sea, with an estimated value of $300 billion, enough gas for 50-70 years of domestic consumption.

It should be noted that recently Cyprus, inspired by Israel’s discovery, started looking for oil off of their shores, however, Turkey threatened Cyprus over these actions. Ahmet Davutoglu a senior Turkish official said that they would show the “necessary response” if the country goes ahead with the marine oil dig. For years, Cyprus and Turkey have been in dispute over who owns the northern region of Cyprus, with the Turkish government claiming the region as theirs and threatening military action time and again.

Because Israel and Lebanon have no maritime border, Lebanon claims the Levant Basin as its own. The Hezbollah, which constitutes much of the Lebanese military, despite contrary claims has threatened to use force to protect the natural wealth it insists belong to Lebanon. Hopefully it would not result in a situation like the Israel-Lebanon War of 2006.

Hassan Nasrallah said:

“We warn Israel not to touch this area or try to steal Lebanon’s resources…Those who harm our installations will have their own installations harmed,” he said.

Israel says it would use force to defend its gas fields should an attack by Hezbollah happen.

Usually, countries negotiate their maritime border, as did Israel and Cyprus, several months ago.

Because the Arab League refuses to supply gas to Israel, the Jewish Country, who imports coal, mainly from South Africa, is starving for fossil fuels. Egypt is the only nation which supplies gas to the Jewish Country, but in a post-Mubarak situation this is a fragile reality. The Arab gas line supplies Egyptian gas to Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, and a separate feed for Israel

When the ousting of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt went down last spring, Israel began to sweat. On February 5th, an explosion happened near the El Arish compressor station which supplies Israel and Jordan, and as a result, the supply was temporarily halted.

On April 27 an explosion at the pipeline near Al-Sabil village in the El-Arish region once again halted natural gas supplies to Israel and Jordan. And on July 4th, an explosion near Nagah, in the Sinai Peninsula halted gas to Jordan and the Jewish Country once again. These incidents are behind a failed attempt to blow up a pipeline supplying the Jewish Country, last March.

Legions of Pharoah and Google Street View

Al-Youm al-Saba, the Egyptian daily, reported Wednesday that Egyptian citizens have created groups on Facebook calling for “a million-man protest” outside the Israeli embassy in Cairo on Friday.

The focus of the demonstration will be the demand to have the Israeli ambassador expelled from Egypt and Israel’s embassy in the capital closed.

The protests come after 5 Egyptian policemen were killed on the border by IDF soldiers in friendly fire, after eight Israeli citizens were killed by Palestinian terrorists. Israel apologized to Egypt for the incident.

For the fifth day in a row, protesters continue to demonstrate outside the embassy holding signs and chanting slogans saying, “Expel the ambassador immediately” and “force the ambassador to leave Egypt”.

Protesters burnt Israeli flags, and threw fire crackers at the embassy building attempting to burn an Israeli flag on a flagpole at the embassy.

In other news, Israel will allow Google Street View cameras to snap 360 degree photographs of its street. They are the first Middle Eastern country to do so. However, there are conditions.

Using the electronic tool to plot terrorist attacks and other privacy issues are concerns which prompted the Law, Information and Technology Authority to develop guidelines with Google for Google Street View. Here are some of the stipulations:

Google must provide citizens with an account of what Google Street View does and means, the rights of citizens and routes the camera crews will follow.

Users will be offered an efficient and reliable way online to blur residences and other objects.

Google must instruct Google Israel to heed legal proceedings in the country, meaning that any civil litigation brought by citizens against the company will be carried out in this country, despite the fact that Google’s main center is in the U.S.

Google has promised not to dispute criminal claims that might be raised against Street View by arguing that the Law, Information and Technology Authority lacks standing to prosecute criminal claims against the company in Israel.

Recent Earthquake Guide for Israelis

Lately there has been a lot of talk about the inevitable Earthquake Israel is facing. There have been earthquakes in the region over the years, some deadly, and geologists warn that a “big one” is on the way. So to all the locals that want the information, here is a presentation put out the homeland security (sort of) department.

Anti-Israel Protesters Attack Australian Cops

Outside a Max Brenner coffee shop down under, in Melbourne, Australia, no less than nineteen anti-Israel protesters were arrested and three Melbourne city police men were lightly wounded, astonishingly, when the anti-Israel protesters attacked them.

The demonstration was to accuse the Jewish State of “ongoing ethnic cleansing.” The demonstration was held outside the Max Brenner store because its Israeli parent company, the Strauss Group, reportedly supports the IDF.

Federal Labor lawmaker Michael Danby accused the “prejudiced extremists” of being hypocrites.

He mentioned that:

“While 1500 people are murdered in Syria, they launch their own sad little attack on a chocolate shop because it also has stores in Israel…”

One of the organizers of the protest, Salem Nasser, is said to belong to a group called Socialist Alternative.

The Socialist Alternative website, which organized the “demonstrations that successfully shut down the Israeli-owned Jericho/Black Pearl cosmetics company” found in the very same Melbourne shopping mall. Socialist Alternative advocates what it calls a “Third Intifada”. The organization also takes credit for a similar incident that happened outside a chocolate shop near Sydney last month.

Vacation in Saudi Arabia

U.S. and Israeli Jews will not be able to fly code-share flights from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia under Delta Air Line’s new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines, set to commence in 2012.

Saudi AirportSaudi Arabia, which is strictly governed by Sharia law, requires citizens of almost every country to obtain a visa. People who want to enter the country need a sponsor; women, who must be dressed in Saudi standards of modesty, are to be met at the Saudi airport by a man who will be chaperone.

Saudi Arabia bans anyone with an Israeli stamp in their passport from entering the country, even if they are in transit. The kingdom has also been accused of withholding visas from travelers with Jewish-sounding names. Religious paraphernalia like bibles, or anything not related directly to Islam are to be confiscated at the airport.

The Jan. 10 agreement allows Saudi Arabian Airlines to become a member of SkyTeam in 2012 after “fulfilling all membership requirements,” according to a statement by SkyTeam. The Saudi airline is SkyTeam’s first ever member from the Middle East.

I Ran For Cover

Hey, what ever happened to Iran? The quiet kid in the corner. Sitting nicely, perhaps, apprehensively as totalitarian regimes in the Middle East fall into civil war, one by one, like a great game of dominoes.

Oh, they didn’t go anywhere. They’re still being their mischievous selves!

On Tuesday, the second day of the Great Prophet Mohammad War Games 6, Iran simultaneously test-fired 14 2,000-range missiles at one single target. Enough firepower to spook the geese in all directions. The missiles were launched near the central city of Qom.

Head of the Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace division, Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh, said:

“Iranian missiles can target US bases in Afghanistan and any part of Israeli territory.”

He swankly asserted that the United States has made Iran’s objective easier:

“Their military bases in the region are in a range of 130, 250 and maximum 700 kilometers in Afghanistan which we can hit with these missiles.”

The Islamic Republic does not need to increase the range of its missiles because Israel is only 1,200 km away from Iran and the U.S. bases are even nearer, some 120 to 700 km away from Iran. Asked if Iranian missiles would pose a threat to Europe, Hajizadeh insisted that while Iran had the technological capacity to create longer-range missiles, the 2,000-km range had been precisely chosen with Israel and US bases in mind,for the reason that “we do not feel a threat from any other country.

According to one source, Iran is working at top speed on some three new ballistic surface missiles with longer ranges than ever. The Shahab-4, for targets at a distance of 3,200-4,000 kilometers; the Sejjil (2,500 kilometers) and the Ashura-Ghadr 110A (3,000 kilometers). Shahab-4 and Ashura/Ghadr 110A are capable of hitting central and western Europe. Iran is also reportedly developing intercontinental ballistic missiles – Shahab-5 (5,000 kilometers) and Shahab-6 (10,000 kilometers), putting North America within hitting range.

In July Iran will unleash the Kavoshgar-5 rocket that will put monkeys into space. Iranian media says that five monkeys have completed their training and the most impressive monkey will be chosen to shoot off into space.

Iran is poised to have a nuclear power plant in operation by August. Built largely with Russian funding, the two countries insist the nuclear plant will be used for power generation, exclusively.
Should we believe this?

Amdocs/Bridgewater

Israeli software giant, Amdocs, who had $1.16 billion in cash and equivalents as of March 31, acquired Canada’s Bridgewater Systems for some $215 million in a deal which promises to improve its phone-billing software business.
Bridgewater provides network control solutions for mobile and convergent service providers.

Bridgewater president and CEO Ed Ogonek had this to say:

“As the market leader in customer experience systems, Amdocs has an excellent reputation for delivering tangible value to service providers worldwide. The combination of Bridgewater’s policy and subscriber data management portfolio with Amdocs CES portfolio will create a unique offering that would further extend Amdocs industry leadership, and deliver innovative solutions for service providers as they seek to transform their networks, improve customer loyalty and monetize their data services…This acquisition would build on Amdocs’ leadership in delivering innovative solutions that change market paradigms. It is a continuation of our strategy to support service providers as they seek to transform their businesses in anticipation of new market opportunities like 4G and machine-to-machine, and in response to clear threats, such as the data explosion…”

Oh, Hezbollah! Oh, Syria!

What happens when panicked Sunni Syrians trying to escape the Baath regime flee to Hezbollah-ruled Lebanon? What do you think!

Lebanese security forces are rounding up Syrian refugees, namely from the border village of Tel Kalakh and sending them back to Syria where 800 citizens have been murdered by Bashir al-Assad in recent months. The refugees stuffed provisions into plastic shopping bags, their wounded on cheap synthetic blankets and crossed the shallow and muddy Kabir river, on foot, looking for medical aid and refuge from residents in the northern city of Tripoli.

One resident, near Damascus, who, out of fear of being arrested, would not give his real name told a reporter from the Guardian:

“There were roadblocks everywhere…It was impossible to hide who these people were, they were looking for Syrians escaping Tell Kalakh…They caught most of them and sent them back through the crossing…Why does Lebanon send our brothers back to be killed and tortured by these monsters?”

According to the New York Times, a reporter from Al Jazeera, Dorothy Parvaz, who disappeared in Syria two weeks ago was sent to Iran within two days of being detained. She is still in Iranian custody! Oy va voy!

Some Syrians turned away at Turkish, Jordanian and Lebanese borders, are heading for Israel. Israel has increased troops deployed on the Syrian border at the intersection of the Israel-Syria-Jordan frontiers in the Har Dov area against the spate of tens of thousands of Syrian refugees. The UN force on the Golan Heights – UNDOF – is also strengthening their forces policing the Israeli-Syrian ceasefire lines.

Despite their unwillingness to help their Sunni neighbors, the Shiite Hezbollah in Lebanon is actually gearing up to remove its heavy, long-range weapons out of storage in Syrian military facilities and transport them back to Lebanon.

Debkafile reported:

“Hezballah may even risk Israel making good on its threat to destroy the Iran-made Fatah-110 surface missiles, its Syrian equivalent M-600 and mobile SA-8 (Gecko) anti-air battery – if they cross the border.”

Meanwhile, an Israeli Navy commander from the missile corvettes’ unit told Globes:

“For quite some time, we have been thinking about how to deal with the opening of the marine front westward to ranges that are almost double what we were used to control and operate in…”

The Missile Corvettes’ unit is responsible for protecting Israel’s offshore natural gas fields, such as Leviathan and Tamar, against the Hezbollah.

The commander continued:

“The gas fields are located west of Rosh Hanikra (the Israeli-Lebanese border point on the Mediterranean). The claims by [Hizbullah general secretary Hassan] Nasrullah that the fields extend into Lebanese waters are not true, even under international law. These are the economic waters of Israel…”

Navy chief of staff Rear Admiral Rani Ben-Yehuda said:

“There is considerable activity in Israel’s economic waters, ranging from surveys by rights’ owners through the drilling of exploratory wells…There is a whole range of possible threats against each of these elements. There is no doubt that strategic infrastructures are included in rules of the threats game.”

While a 2008 U.S. diplomatic cable leaked by WikiLeaks quotes now-Lebanese prime minister, Najib Mikati, describing Nasrallah and Hezbollah as a “tumour that must be removed.”

However, Mikati’s office released a statement this week saying the comments did not “reflect his convictions.”

“The prime minister will not get involved in debates with any party, especially over … words and positions that are in part untrue, in part inaccurate and most of which go back years…”

Today, Hezbollah is said to have an arsenal of more than 40,000 rockets. If war breaks out with Israel, Hezbollah will be able to launch between 500 and 600 rockets every day at the Jewish State.

Syriasly Delicious Apples

“Returning” the Golan Heights to Syria, from whom the land was captured following the Six Day War in 1967 is probably not such a smart notion. Not today. Not tomorrow. Perhaps nor the day after tomorrow would it be a good notion to cede land to Syria.

Here is what Israel can do to honor justice:

They can donate apples to the Syrians. Actually, 12,000 tons were transferred by IDF forces across the border via the Quneitra crossing.

These apples, grown in the Golan Heights by Druze farmers, carry diplomatic significance:

“Each apple equals assistance to Druze farmers on both sides of the border..”

explained Captain Adham Rad, commander of the Quneitra crossing.

“Some Druze families are separated by the border…and Israel, showing its desire for peace, works to accommodate their needs, making sure they lead normal lives.”

Israeli authorities approved the project that began six years ago, and the Red Cross is the neutral envoy required for launching the project.

The Red Cross has representatives on either side of the border and supplies the trucks and Kenyan drivers who transfer the apples from Israeli to Syrian trucks. Then, from Syria, the apples are marketed to Persian Gulf countries.

The videos below are about as close as you would want to be to Syria, under Baath Party control, these days:

On Choosing the Right Battles (in the face of a syrias situation)

by Scott Krane

Today we are living in the Islamic Democracy Revolution, the Arab Spring; an unmistakable contrapuntal song of freedom. A tune that started in Tunisia and spread to Egypt, two countries that “did good” in their respective democracy-fueled coup d’états. Sudan heard the cry but to no apparent avail, as did Yemen, Bahrain and Iran (and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cites the last twenty-four months in Tehran as the exposition of the movement), as did poor little Lebanon, which continues to be strangled and poisoned by the Hezbollah, that venomous snake.

A critical assessment of the Middle East leads us to analyze the recent history of Syria and the recent history of Libya.

In the latter country, Muammar el-Qhadaffi thought he had the world duped. The financier of worldwide guerilla groups, he is single-handedly responsible for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 that killed 270 innocents. And he funded Black September, the Palestinian group that murdered eleven Israeli athletes during the 1972 Olympics in Munich. However, the world – that is the West and Africa – was under the verisimilar impression he had reformed his evil ways; or at least, did not pose a threat to the West. (Does he?)

U.S. President Barack Obama’s decision to call a “no-fly zone,” and bomb that country is crazy; more so considering America’s budget deficit and the cost of such military operations, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan and counting. Certainly there are countless other humanitarian nightmares happening around the world that America, were they the world’s humanitarian vigilantes, would cite and quell.

So, as I read in a recent editorial in Haaretz:

“The West’s intervention in Libya may undermine future civil revolts.”

And if we fear Libya acquiring nuclear weapons, then for goodness sakes what is taking so long to do something about Iran.

Recent events in Syria, as they pertain to the Jewish State, are the exact opposite. With President Bashar al-Assad at the helm, Syria has spent more than $3 billion on weapons in three years. As we well know, they have done all they can in the way of assassinations to squash democracy in Lebanon – they have done with their geographic advantage what Iran, who has in that state a terrorist proxy, cannot. According to Haaretz, Syria has received $1 billion from Iran to purchase rockets, surface-to-surface missiles, anti-tank missiles and anti-aircraft systems.

David Schenker of The New Republic wrote:

“During the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Syria’s Assad regime was helping insurgents to cross the border and kill Americans. In response to the Syrian provocation, the Bush administration considered a broad range of policy options. But one family of options always remained off the table: regime change or any combination of pressures that might destabilize Damascus.”

document by Syrian government to assassinate members of the rebellionFurthermore, recent WikiLeaks documents indicate that:

“Syria placed long-range missiles equipped with chemical warheads on high alert after an attack on a Syrian nuclear plant in 2007.”

Mossad obtained information about the nuclear plant, built for Syria by North Korea, from a laptop stolen from a senior Syrian official. Israel launched the stealth attack that took out the Syrian reactor. Though, first they asked the U.S. to carry-out the strike, however, then-Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, refused.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a cheap equivocator, who in the last month murdered 100s of his own people in attempt to put the lid on protests. While he told his people to expect constitutional amendments, sweeping reforms and the ditching of despised state emergency laws that give to the government carte blanche to arrest citizens, sans charges, no such reforms have actually happened.

Meanwhile, Michael Isikoff of MSNBC wrote:

“A document drafted by senior Syrian intelligence officials (pictured above) details a plan to infiltrate the ranks of anti-regime protesters, arrest and assassinate their leaders, and link anti-regime demonstrations to the work of Zionist and other outside agitators.”

The reason that Israel may want to get involved in ousting Assad makes the U.S. invasion of Libya, (where French and NATO forces were already eyeing, where al-Qaeda, America’s other enemy is on the side of the rebellion), look well, silly.

Syria has been a direct threat to the Jewish State forever and in the last weeks, more so than ever.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said:

“Syria is an Iranian acquisition, and it is clear that Iran is concerned that this investment will go down the drain…Therefore, Iran has shown more involvement [in Syria] than in other Arab countries.”

According to intercepted communications among Iranian officials:

Iran is materially assisting the Syrian government in its efforts to suppress their own people“.

If the time has come to sing democracy in the Middle East, let’s make sure military invasions are worth our while. Let’s not forget Syria is among the most noteworthy bankrollers of Hamas. Why not nip this nightmare in the bud? So America is in Libya, fighting alongside al-Qaeda, their back seemingly turned to Iran. The reality is Syria needs Israel’s help. And, let’s face it, Israel needs theirs.

Medical Histadrut Permits Over-the-Counter Ritalin

RitalinThe Ethics Committee of the Medical Histadrut (Federation) will now be permitted to sell the psycho-stimulant drug that treats attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Ritalin (Methylphenidate) without a doctor’s prescription.

Professor Esther Shohami, a lecturer and researcher in the pharmacological department in the Hebrew University’s Faculty of Medicine, is critical of the decision.

She told Yediot Achronot:

“A person who does not need Ritalin and only takes the medication to improve performance could cause certain things that were hidden inside him to erupt…There are people who arrive at the emergency rooms with psychotic seizures.”

The head of the IMA’s Ethics Board, Professor Avinoam Reches said:

“Everyone has the right to make the most of themselves so long as it doesn’t hurt or endanger others…Though a person may not suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder, if Ritalin helps him concentrate then it is allowed. It is the same for memory-improvement drugs. If they help a person with slightly worsened cognitive skills then there is no reason not to give them to him…”

Reches stated, however, Israel will not assist in paying for the drug unless medical need has been proven. Students who need extra help during exams will have to pay the full price for Ritalin, and will not receive financing from their HMOs.

Friendship & Kabbalah The Ever Growing Tradition

Dancing Group of Religious Men in IsraelTwo weeks ago, the New York Times had an article about Kabbalistic dancers, it was a reminder of the ubiquity and diversity of the various forms of this ancient mysticism; today, Kabbalah is not just a red-string on the left wrist of Ashton Kutcher, it connects to various aspects of our lives in ways that are sometimes hard to foretell and are always interesting and enriching.

Two of the main fields Kabbalah has always had a hold in are art and jewelry, spiritual home decor and jewelry engraved with verses or blessed with special meaning for a certain purpose. In such a popular and long-established world it’s hard to create something new, but like the Kabbalah modern dancing group, examples of creativity are out there waiting to be found.

Kabbalah Friendship Bracelet by MIZZE
Mizze Jewelry, a company in Israel recently created a new line of handmade jewelry that combines two very traditional and popular ideas, the red string strand from Rachel’s Tomb and the friendship bracelet we all know and love, the result is what they call the Kabbalah Friendship Bracelet.
How is it done you wonder, well, within the hand knit friendship bracelet given by men and women of all ages throughout the world, runs a single Red String strand believed to offer the wearer protection and ward off spiritual harm.

What caught my eye about the combination is the fact that the idea marries a worldwide cultural tradition to the ancient Kabbalah mystical tradition while managing to preserve the beauty and uniqueness of each, love and friendship are interweaved with good fortune and safekeeping.

Tourism in the Jewish State

If not because of a de facto war with Hamas, then due to the economic crisis, 2009 saw a considerable lull in tourism; while 2008 welcomed 3 million visitors to the Jewish State’s shining shore. Proudly, Israel’s tourism minister, Stas Misezhnikov, announced that Israel received 3.45 million tourists in 2010. A recent record!

According to Misezhnikov, one-fifth of the tourists came from the United States, followed by visitors from France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Germany. More than two-thirds were Christian and a shocking 3 percent were Jewish.

Meanwhile, entrepreneur and former chief operating officer of EasyJet, Edward Winter, plans to launch a new airline, “Jet Israel,” offering low-cost flights to the Holy Land.

Winter, who recently met with Israeli aviation officials and Stas Misezhenikov, claims he can jump start an aviation revolution in Israel, comparable to EasyJet’s success in Europe.

Winter, as part of negotiations, requested that Israel provide the airline with a safety net. He insists on a financial compensation should the company book occupancies between 70% and 90%. Occupancy above the latter percentage, will not reward him an compensation.

The Israeli Tourism Ministry has already drafted financial models for the new airline and consulted officials of the Finance Ministry concerning the safety net, estimated to reach approximately NIS 100 million (about $28 million).

Winter’s other baby, EasyJet, Europe’s largest low-cost airline, operates flights to Israel from London, Geneva and Basel. It has not managed, however, to offer cheap tickets at the target price. EasyJet will operate flights from Tel Aviv to Basel 3 times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays; flights from Tel Aviv depart at 1:40 pm and arrive in Basel at 5:20 pm; flights from Basel depart at 7:55 am and arrive in Tel Aviv at 12:55 p.m. The starting fares from Tel Aviv to Basel are 39.99 euros (roughly $53) and from Basel to Tel Aviv 42 euros ($56).

During a press conference to bid farewell to 2010, Misezhenikov told the press:

“EasyJet is not a low-cost company. Instead of pulling the prices of all the other airlines down, it pushed them up…We need a real low-cost company with truly cheap prices. We are formulating ideas to operate low-cost companies that fly directly to Israel and are examining the subject with Israeli and foreign airline companies…”

Misezhnikov added that he would like to expand the marketing of Israel to destinations such as India and South Korea, both bearing large Evangelical Christians populations.

Iran To Threaten Israel

According to the Irna News Agency, Iran hanged Ali Akbar Siadat, an Iranian citizen, inside Tehran’s Evin prison, after finding him guilty of spying for Mossad.

Siadat was first arrested in 2008, while trying to leave Iran with his wife.

Siadat “confessed that he had transferred information to Mossad about Iran’s military activities” reported Irna, adding that he had “received $60,000 to give classified information to the Zionist regime.”

According to the accusations he was providing information about missiles, air crashes, fighter jets, training flights and military bases.

Allegedly, he met his contacts from Mossad during trips he took to Thailand, Turkey and the Netherlands.

In 2008, Ali Ashtari, an Iranian telecoms engineer, was hanged after being convicted of spying for Mossad. According to Irna, a second man, Ali Saremi, was also hanged on Tuesday. Saremi, 63, was alleged to be a member of the opposition group, People’s Mujahideen Organization of Iran (PMOI), considered by Tehran to be a terrorist organization. Saremi had been arrested several times since 1983. He spent a total of 24 years in prison on various offenses of the shah and clerical rule.

Authorities say that when he was arrested in 2007, for the final time, they found CDs, photos and hand-written documents in his house, concerning the PMOI.

In related news, the Iran regime has been subjected to four rounds of sanctions by United Nations Security Council in relation to its resolute nuclear program.

Iran’s nuclear program began in 1974, before the Islamic Revolution of 1979, with plans to build a nuclear power station at Bushehr with the help of Germany. The plan was abandoned during the revolution, but renewed in the 1990, when Tehran signed an agreement with Russia.

In December of 2007, Moscow began delivering canisters of enriched uranium.
