Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, 32, an Iranian nuclear scientist and a supervisor at a uranium enrichment facility in Nantaz was killed in a bomb blast in Tehran on Wednesday; 11.1.2012 just days after Iran confirmed that Iran had begun enriching uranium in an underground facility.

The bomb is the same as the ones previously used and the killing marked the fourth assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in two years and adds another incident to a series of mysterious explosions at nuclear-related sites that appear aimed to suspend Iran's drive for his peaceful atomic activity. Although Iran blamed the United States and Israel for the these series of terrors but Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as a highest US level said Wednesday that the United States played no role in the killing of Iranian nuclear scientist and said the U.S. is looking for an international understanding with Iran that ends its uranium enrichment program.

But Iran repeatedly announced that has enough and even more than necessary cooperation with IAEA and this is its right for enrichment activity even twenty percent for peaceful activities as other countries do.

On the other hand while there is not any definite document about involving Iran in a army nuclear activity, and many analysts say that it is not yet clear whether Iran has decided to build a nuclear weapon or merely achieve the capability of doing so, but Micky Segall, a former head of the Iranian desk in Israeli military intelligence, told Israeli Army Radio that Wednesday's assassination is an example of the heightened pressure being put on Iran. "Many bad things are happening to Iran in the recent period," he said. In addition to the assassinations, the nuclear program has been hit by a computer virus that reportedly did extensive damage.

Last month, a series of explosions hit a missile base and two facilities said to be connected to the nuclear program. The French newspaper Le Figaro quoted Iraqi officials as saying that the Mossad was recruiting Iranian dissidents in the Kurdish region to carry out operations such as Wednesday's in Tehran. And General Yoav Mordechai, the Israeli military spokesman, also has said on his official Face book page: "I don't know who took revenge on the Iranian scientist, but I am definitely not shedding a tear."[1]. These quotations clearly show how western intelligence agencies are involved in damaging to Iranian peaceful nuclear activity.

It is now to the Iranian Foreign Ministry that clearly sends a categorically diplomatic message to US that the undeclared campaign against Iran's nuclear scientists is entering a dangerous phase. If I ran comes to this conclusion that the next step will be for Iran that to answer like for like, then Iran will accept these assassinations as state sponsored terrorists attack to Iranian people. And if a state is behind this then this is international state terrorism and it's inviting a response. It looks like a further twist that will lead to a tit-for-tat. It is not enough just asked UN to condemn this terror, but Security Council should investigate the role of intelligence leak in IAEA and its relation to this terror.

It needs more than just condemnation, but they should take an actual step to build confidence in Iranian side for any future negotiation and cooperation with IAEA and 5+1.
