Israel calls for military coalition against Iran

UE says Iran’s n-enrichment plan within JCPOA limit

Despite EU assessment of Iran’s nuclear enrichment plan being within multilateral JCPOA deal limit, Israel has resumed creating war hysteria. Israel’s intelligence minister Yisrael Katz has called for a military coalition against Iran if it defies world powers by enriching military-grade uranium.

The message should be that “if the Iranians return” to enriching uranium that could enable them to build a nuclear bomb, “a military coalition will be formed against them,” Katz told Israeli public radio station Kan.

The Israeli minister’s remarks came within 24 hours of Iranian Supreme Leader Seyyed Ali Khamenei calling Israel as “cancerous tumor” which has to be removed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also visiting European leaders to discuss Iran’s regional involvement and nuclear program, both seen by the Jewish state as grave threats. He met German Chancellor Angela Markel in Berlin on Monday, who assured of exerting pressure to force Iran to pull out of Syria.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu during his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, warned that Iran was “seeking nuclear weapons to carry out its genocidal designs. It’s important to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. We commit, and I commit again, that we will not let that happen.”

On Tuesday, Netanyahu was in Paris to meet French President Emmanuel Macron while he is visiting London to see British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday.

Katz addressed Tehran’s threat to restart uranium enrichment at an “industrial level” if the 2015 pact falls apart. “If the Iranians don’t surrender now, and try to return” to unsupervised uranium enrichment, “there should be a clear statement by the President of the United States and all of the Western coalition. The Arabs and Israel surely would be there too,” he said.

Israel calls for military coalition against IranMeanwhile, European Union was quick to respond to Iran’s announcement of getting ready to resume nuclear enrichment activities under the direction of their Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

European Union said on Tuesday that a “first assessment” indicated that Iran’s declared intention to increase uranium capacity did not violate its commitments under the JCPOA signed in 2015.

Maja Kocijancic, the spokeswomen for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, said on Tuesday that Iran’s decision did not constitute a breach of the nuclear agreement. “Following a first assessment, the announced steps per se are not a violation of the JCPOA,” she said.

However, she claimed, “At this particular juncture, they will not contribute to build confidence in the nature of the Iranian nuclear program.”

Ali Akbar SalehiThe Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has said on Tuesday that it  has begun work to prepare infrastructure for building advanced centrifuges at the Natanz enrichment facility within JCPOA limit.

Ali Akbar Salehi, the AEOI chief, told a press conference in Tehran, “Yesterday, we took the first step and submitted a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on the start of certain activities, but we started to take the necessary practical measures today.”

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday warned European leaders to drop their “dream” of Tehran continuing to curb its nuclear program despite renewed economic sanctions.

According to Israeli media, Tel Aviv argues the lifting of sanctions under the nuclear deal allowed Iran to expand its presence in the Middle East, both through its own forces and with proxy groups.

It alleges that Iranian military personnel were based in Syria and their proxy Hezbollah of Lebanon was involved in operations in Syrian territory. Syrian government had invited Iranian military advisors and Hezbollah to defeat terror groups including Daesh (IS), Al-Nusra front and others.

Israel also considers that the time limits on the accord do not guarantee Iran will not eventually obtain nuclear weapons. Tel Aviv also wants to see restrictions on Iranian missile development.

Iran denies the pursuit of an atomic program for military purposes. Since the implementation of JCPOA in January 2016, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed Iran’s compliance for eleven times. Iran say that its missile program is part of their defense preparedness and cannot be curbed under JCPOA.

European Union has been working to save the JCPOA despite US withdrawal from the multilateral agreement.

Bear takes 400 selfies with a sensory camera in USA’s Colorado, Twitter user amused

According to reports, the OSMP authorities had installed nine cameras to cover and click images of the wildlife land which is situated and spread out across 46,000 acres.

The notion of clicking selfies has transgressed and gone beyond species as an amusing story has come to light from USA’s Colorado’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) where a bear hijacked a sensory camera and took 400 selfies. According to reports, the officials of Space and Mountain parks in Colorado had installed a camera in order to shoot the wildlife activities.

It was reported that when the officials took out the snaps that the sensory camera had clicked, they learnt that 580 images were clicked and out of the 580 images, the 400 of the images were selfies taken by a bear.

According to reports, the OSMP authorities had installed nine cameras to cover and click images of the wildlife land which is situated and spread out across 46,000 acres. The sensory cameras work on motion sensing and when an animal steps in the frame, the camera automatically captures the pictures of the subject that is in front of it.

The cameras also have features of taking pictures at night by using infrared light which cause less disruption to the animals who can get irritated by the flash.

The Tweet shows the images of the bear posing from all angles as it, for a moment, seems to be a model that is accustomed to pose for pictures.

Twitter reactions

After the tweet showing the selfies of the bear surfaced, many users came forward to add their take on the incident as one user wrote and said this pose by the bear looks to be inspired from the film Lolita.

One user wrote and praised the posing skills of the bear as the user wrote and said that the bear looks good and could be a professional model. Another user also amusingly added and wrote that they used to be as handsome as the bear a while ago. The user also wrote and said that nature is the champ.

US intervention prevented India-Pakistan nuclear war post 2019 Balakot strike: Mike Pompeo

A timely intervention by the Trump administration prevented a potential nuclear war between India and Pakistan after the 2019 airstrikes, former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo has claimed in his new book.

A timely intervention by the Trump administration prevented a potential nuclear war between India and Pakistan after the 2019 airstrikes, former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo has claimed in his new book.

In his book, “Never Give an Inch”, a memoir of his time as a top diplomat in Donald Trump regime and earlier as the CIA chief, Pompeo writes that the world doesn’t properly know how close the India-Pakistan rivalry came to spilling over into a nuclear war in February 2019.

The Indian Air Force on February 26, 2019 launched targeted airstrikes inside Pakistan targeting terrorist training camps of terror outfit of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Balakot region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

India’s response came after 41 CRPF men were killed in a suicide bombing in Kashmir’s Pulwama on February 14, 2019.

India shot down an F-16 during an aerial combat in which an Indian warplane was shot down by Pakistan and the pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, was captured.

Pompeo, seen by many as a potential future presidential contender, reveals that he was in Hanoi for a summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, when he woke up to an urgent call from a senior Indian official.

The official told Pompeo that he believed that Pakistan was prepping their nuclear weapons for a strike and India was preparing its own response.

Pompeo says he told the official to give the US time to sort things out and eventually US diplomats managed to convince the arch rivals that neither of them was going for the nuclear option, thus deescalating the situation.

The former Trump diplomat in his book says he believes that Pakistan “probably enabled” the Kashmir attack. Pompeo says he spoke to the Pakistan’s “actual leader” then army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, alluding to the weakness of civilian governments in the country.

Pompeo says that no other nation could have done what the US did that night to avoid “a horrible outcome.”

Pompeo had publicly defended India’s right to act during his stint as US secretary of state.

India has reportedly invited Pakistan foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Umar Ata Bandial, to attend in the foreign ministers’ and chief justices’ meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

Pak foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto

India has reportedly invited Pakistan foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Umar Ata Bandial, to attend in the foreign ministers’ and chief justices’ meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

As per reports, India, who was appointed to chair the regional grouping in September 2022, has sent the invitations to Bhutto and Bandial through the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.

The invites come as a surprise to many as bilateral ties between the two subcontinental neighbors are going through a rough patch in recent times.

India is set to host key ministerial meeting summit in Goa in the first week of May of the nine-member Asian grouping which also consists of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and its new member Iran, which will attend its first SCO meeting as a full member.

The last meeting of the SCO was held in Samarkand in Uzbekistan.

Pakistan has yet to respond to the invite and if Bilawal Bhutto accepts, it will be the first such visit from a Pakistani foreign minister in nearly a decade since Hina Rabbani Khar paid a visit to India in 2011.

India-Pakistan ties have been at an all-time low since 2019 when the Centre abolished Article 370 which formerly bestowed special status upon the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. Islamabad is seeking its restoration and considers the Kashmir issue, a burning point between the two nations.

Making matters worse, last month, Bilawal Bhutto sparked a row when he called PM Modi the “butcher of Gujarat”.
