Members of the nuclear club had condemned Iran on removal of seals from its nuclear research facilities, which has paved the way for the resumption of sensitive nuclear work after a two-year suspension, despite warnings from the west of possible UN sanctions.

United States government in a press statement has said that Tehran had showed "disdain for international concern" over its atomic programme by removing seals from Natanz nuclear research plant, while Russia has said that it would like to pursue Tehran through talks to halt the process of nuclear research and will ensure that Tehran should refrain from enriching uranium.

Deputy Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Mohammad Saeedi had told reporters during a press conference that some of the seals that were in the field of only research facilities were authorized to be removed in the presence of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors and production of nuclear fuel will remains suspended.

Atomic powers of the world do not want that other countries should also join the nuclear club. There is no doubt that the west does not trust Iran, Syria, Yemen and the likes, after the 9/11 terrorist`s attacks on New York and the Pentagon. The West only wants one state to be strong enough on this planet to take action against the Muslim countries and that is Israel. When the time comes, the western countries will count on Israel to drop an Atom Bomb on a particular Muslim State and it could also be Iran.
The mandate of the members of the nuclear club is safety, security, and survival of their own people. USA, Britain, France & Germany fears that if Iran will become a nuclear state, it may attack and wipe out Israel from the world map. If the western countries think that Iran should not continue its research work for enriching uranium in future, U.S. President Mr. George W. Bush should fly to Iran and meet Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, or invite him at White House and listen to his grievances against Israel.
It is unfortunate that big powers of the world could not solve the long awaited political differences between the countries and their undue favoritism towards Israel have forced the present Iranian regime to resume its nuclear research work in Natanz nuclear research plant.
Time has come for the west to practically demonstrate its willingness to resolve differences between the countries within a specified period of time, e.g. issues between Palestine and Israel, India and Pakistan, as any more lip service which is going on since 1947 to the affected countries will not serve any purpose.

If the west wants Iran to suspend its nuclear programme, then it should also ask IAEA inspectors to visit Israel and see how many atom bombs Israel can drop on the Muslim Countries? If a Muslim State like Iran with its nuclear capability can be dangerous either for the western countries or for Israel itself, than Israel as a nuclear state is also dangerous for, Iran as well as for other Muslim countries in the world.

The possibility that west want to see Iran as a non-nuclear state is very rare, unless west ask IAEA inspectors to Israel completely dismantle the nuclear capability of Israel and make the entire region a nuclear free zone.
