Netanyahu: Iran Preparing Another Holocaust

"Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu says Iran’s nuclear goals, and the fanaticism of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, pose a threat not only to Israel, but to the entire Western world.

The former prime minister compared the growing threat of Iran to the rise of Nazism before World War II, and he wonders why no one seems to be taking the threat seriously.

'It’s 1938, and Iran is Germany,” Netanyahu said, 'and Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs.” Haaretz newspaper reports that Netanyahu repeated that line as a chorus during an address Monday to the United Jewish Communities General Assembly.
" More.

I share Netanyahu's bewilderment. Then you contrast that story with this story from the International World Tribune: UN nuclear agency finds unexplained plutonium and enriched uranium traces in Iran waste facility.

VIENNA, Austria: International Atomic Energy Agency experts have found unexplained plutonium and highly enriched uranium traces in a nuclear waste facility in Iran and have asked Tehran for details, an IAEA report said Tuesday.

The report, prepared for next week's meeting of the 35-nation IAEA, also faulted Tehran for not cooperating with the agency's attempts to investigate suspicious aspects of Iran's nuclear program that have led to fears it might be interested in developing nuclear arms.

And it said it could not confirm Iranian claims that its nuclear activities were exclusively nonmilitary unless Tehran increased its openness.

"The agency will remain unable to make further progress in its efforts to verify the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran," without additional cooperation from Tehran, said the report, by IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei.

Unexplained? Like these findings should be a surprise to anyone. What the hell? I feel like I'm living in an alternate universe. Doesn't anyone take Iran seriously?
