Former Iranian diplomat: 'Iran would definitely use nuclear weapon on Israel'

If Iran makes a nuclear bomb "it would definitely use it against Israel or against any other enemy state," a former representative of the Iranian Foreign Ministry said in an exclusive interview aired on Friday on Channel 2 television.
           "The [Iranian] regime thinks that if it has several atom bombs, it will grant it an insurance policy," Mohammed Razza Hidari said. "They believe that if [they have a nuclear weapon], the world would treat them the way it treats North Korea."
He also warned that if Iran is allowed to stall for more time, "it will have the knowledge to make a nuclear bomb in less than a year."
Hidari, who was stationed at the Tehran International Airport and supervised many of the incoming flights, told Channel 2's Enrique Zimmerman that Venezuela provides uranium for Iran's nuclear program.
"Venezuela buys weapons from criminals and sends them to Iran," Hidari told Channel 2. "Among the things sent were, for example, uranium purchased from mob organizations and sent to the Islamic republic."
During his tenure at the airport, Hidari saw "many groups of Hezbollah men who came to Iran to acquire knowledge, among other things."
He also revealed the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps were in contact with terror organizations in Iraq and Afghanistan, that were linked to the Taliban and to al-Qaida.
Hidari also served as the Iranian envoy in several different countries, among them Georgia and Norway. There, he worked to recruit Western nuclear scientists by promising them a hefty salary.
Two years ago Hidari defected after seeing the Tehran regime suppress opposition protests by slaughtering citizens, and went into hiding in Oslo, Norway, where he works to overthrow Iran's Islamic regime.
"[The West] should impose political sanctions on Iran [such as] closing all Iranian embassies, and not allowing Iranian ministers to visit other countries, like they did with the Apartheid regime," Hidari concluded.

What Hidari says confirms what Bernard LewisRaphael IsraeliReza KahliliHarold RhodeMenashe AmirMatthias Kuntzel  and  James Woolsey have been saying about Iran  attacking Israel, the US and Europe. However, Hidari does not explain how come Iran is not deterred  by the nuclear arsenal of the countries he says Iran intends to attack.   The above mentioned scholars do just that.  When will the censorship and self-censorship about the religious/ideological motives based in Shia eschatology and the Twelvers' beliefs be lifted so that the public can finally be informed what is so fundamentally different in the Iranian threat? How long can everyone pretend not to know?  
The Israeli government should have organized a seminar of Islamic scholars  to discuss the validity of Bernard Lewis's MAD statement  "for people with this mindset, M.A.D. is not a constraint; it is an inducement..." . Why haven't they? At least it would become a topic of discussion, and not almost unknown or a taboo as in today's climate
