Physician heal thyself, Iran tells the US
The US and its accomplices in crimes against humanity, which are dangerously nuclear armed, hope that the Islamic Republic of Iran will yield to their pressures and propaganda to disarm itself and cease to defend the Muslims of the region as well as itself.
This wrong notion has been dismissed by Iranian officials, who have explicitly said that Iran’s right to develop the conventional ballistic missile defence system will on no account be negotiated, and it is the US and the nuclear powers which should first dismantle their doomsday weapons.
Now we have an interesting viewpoint in this regard that appeared in March 5 issue of Iran’s English language daily Kayhan International. Written by columnist S. Nawabzadeh, it is titled: “Physician heal thyself, Iran tells the US”.
“Nuclear energy for all, nuclear weapons for none”, had remarked the Leader of the Islamic Revolution a few years ago in one of his speeches, while explicitly saying it is “haraam” (or religiously forbidden) to manufacture weapons of mass destruction.
“Those who believe in peace and whose hearts are filled with sincerity for the future of humanity, were quick to endorse the dynamic decree of Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
“Although the Islamic Republic of Iran never pursued nuclear weapons despite having the necessary technology, in order to demonstrate to the world its peaceful intentions it agreed to downgrade uranium enrichment to less than 5 percent, as part of the Geneva international agreement with six major world countries, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“This was hailed it as a step towards building of confidence on the international scale in order to work towards making Planet Earth free of nuclear and other doomsday weapons.
“Lucifer was alarmed at this prospect and set in motion his devilish legions, especially the Zionists, who duped voters in the US to propel to power in the White House a Don Quixote called Donald Trump.
“Immediately, this dotard set about disturbing international peace, and set his satanic eyes on aborting the JCPOA. When he found out that he cannot scuttle an international accord unanimously, he started throwing tantrums and threats, in a vain bid to intimidate Iran.
“When his theatrics failed and brought about condemnation from Washington’s traditional allies, the West European regimes, who pointed to the collective harms of scrapping the JCPOA, he was instructed by his Zionist string holders to try to add certain clauses to this international agreement, such as curbing Iran’s growing influence among the legal governments and popular forces throughout the Muslim World, or putting brakes on Tehran’s defensive ballistic missile project.”
Kayhan International wrote: “It was but natural of the Islamic Republic to reject outright such notions, and in order to make the Planet the perfectly safe playground for the present and future generations, Iran has now proposed to the evil powers possessing nuclear weapons to summon the courage to dismantle their weapons of mass destruction.
“Iran’s Armed Forces Spokesman, Masoud Jazayeri, said in this regard on Saturday: “Iran will not negotiate over its ballistic missiles until the United States and Europe dismantle their nuclear weapons. The condition for negotiating Iran's missiles is the destruction of the nuclear weapons and long-range missiles of the United States and Europe.”
“Jazayeri was neither speaking out of fear nor trying to yield step-by-step to the pressures of the West, which Iranian political and religious leaders have brushed aside as meddlesome and illogical, when the US is using terrorist proxies to destabilize neighbourin countries and pouring in all sorts of lethal conventional weapons in the armouries of its clients, such as Saudi Arabia and the illegal Zionist entity, to indulge in state terrorism.
“The policy pursued by Islamic Iran is crystal clear. Physician heal thyself.
“Jazayeri added: What the Americans say out of desperation with regards to limiting the Islamic Republic of Iran's missile capabilities is an unattainable dream resulting from their regional failures and defeats.”
Kayhan International pointed out: “Now the ball is in the court of the Great Satan. If there is any iota of humanity in the powers that rule the US, they will dismantle their nuclear arsenals, which would encourage both their allies and rivals, such as the West Europeans and the Eastern giants, to do the same.
“It is obvious that Ernest Rutherford who in 1932 discovered that when lithium atoms were "split" by protons from a proton accelerator, immense amounts of energy were released in accordance with the principle of mass–energy equivalence, he had no idea of the destructive nature of this immense power.
“It was the satanic nature of the US, which misused atomic energy to manufacture the bombs which it criminally dropped on the unsuspecting Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a live field test, when World War 2 was virtually over.
“So Washington make no mistakes. Iran is determined to devote all its efforts for promotion of peace and prosperity in the region, and this requires mutual respect and the courage to first dismantle your nuclear stockpiles.”
