(KurtNimmo) – Video: Iran Fires Up Nuclear Plant Despite Threats
Iran has begun to fuel its first nuclear power station in Bushehr despite a massive propaganda campaign launched against the reactor by the United States and Israel and largely ineffectual United Nations and U.S. Congress sanctions.
“‘It is totally unacceptable that a country that so blatantly violates resolutions of the (United Nations) Security Council, decisions of the International Atomic Energy Agency and its commitments under the NPT (non-proliferation treaty) should enjoy the fruits of using nuclear energy,” said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yossi Levy. “The international community should increase pressure … to force Iran to abide by international decisions and cease its enrichment activities and its construction of reactors.”
Israel has not signed the NPT. On September 18, 2009 the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency called on Israel to open its nuclear facilities to IAEA inspection and adhere to the non-proliferation treaty. The chief Israeli delegate stated that “Israel will not co-operate in any matter with this resolution.”
It is estimated that Israel has approximately 400 thermonuclear weapons.
“Russia’s support for Bushehr underscores that Iran does not need an indigenous enrichment capability if its intentions are purely peaceful,” U.S. State Department spokesman Darby Holladay told Reuters.

On Saturday, Antiwar Radio host Scott Horton told RT News that the Bushehr reactor will be incapable of producing nuclear weapons grade fuel:
