Why is the world mute on murder?
THE ARTICLE “Nuclear engineers slain” (November 11) refers.
I’m incredulous that the elimination of Iranian nuclear scientists is barely mentioned in the mainstream media.
In the most recent incident, assassins killed five nuclear engineers. Though in this case, four were Syrian, one Iranian, the pattern is similar to the policy of elimination attributed to Israel.
Iran’s nuclear energy power has been subject to sanctions by Western countries at the behest of Israel.
This ugly, uncivilised and barbaric vandalism is to be deplored.
Yet we find Western countries, particularly the US, remain muted.
Equally disturbing is the fact that mainstream media relegate reports on it, suggesting such murders are acceptable.
The wilful killing of Iran’s intellectuals is clearly designed to scupper its ambitious goals in the field of nuclear technology. While the loss of life has robbed their families and the country of great assets, such cowardly conduct will not halt Iran’s scientific progress.
