Iranian nuclear scientist seeking asylum in Israel

An unidentified Iranian nuclear scientist has asked to receive asylum in Israel.
Speaking at a cultural event in Ramat Gan on Saturday, Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud) said that an Iranian nuclear scientist had broken ranks with the Islamic regime and requested political asylum in Israel.

While Kara refused to reveal the identity of the scientist, he did say that the Iranian national was currently awaiting a decision on the matter in a “friendly country.”

Kara added that the scientist had passed his message to Israeli sources through a Jewish woman of Iranian descent, and that he would do all he could to advance the request.

“I will support any source with the goal of removing the strategic and nuclear threat posed to Israel and posed to the enlightened, democratic world [by Iran],” Kara said during Saturday’s event.
Haaretz adds:
The Druze minister added that Arab states are also threatened by Iran's nuclear ambitions but they are reassured at the moment by Tehran's focus on Israel.

"There is no doubt the Arab countries will be part of Iran's nuclear attack if the world continues to hibernate and allow this option to be realized," said Kara.

I hope Israel grants the request as soon as possible.

Knowing everything possible about Iran's nuclear program can only safeguard Israel's future.
