Im transatlantischen Machtkampf um Iran geht es nicht nur um das Atomabkommen und um neue Handelssanktionen. Eine nicht zu unterschätzende Rolle spielt – neben den lebenswichtigen Ölexporten – auch das Erdgas.
Iran gehört nämlich zu den Ländern mit den größten Gasvorkommen weltweit. Und die EU möchte davon profitieren, um sich von russischem Gas unabhängiger zu machen.
“In my estimation, it’s not going to happen in the very near future, not in the next few weeks,” one source, speaking not for attribution, said Sept. 6. “I think we’ll see continuation of a dialogue, very low key, until after the midterm elections.”
The assessment comes as the head of Mossad was the latest senior Israeli official to arrive for consultations in Washington this week.
However, Mossad director David Barnea has canceled earlier plans to brief the Senate Intelligence committee on Israeli objections to the Iran deal, sources said, and a committee spokesperson confirmed.
During those meetings, he presented „sensitive intelligence“ to highlight the Islamic Republic’s lies.
Mossad Director David Barnea left on Monday for Washington DC to hold a series of meetings with top officials from the White House, CIA Director William Burns, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Pentagon and the State Department to try to halt the reportedly impending Iran nuclear deal.

In a far-reaching interview aired Monday with Israel’s Channel 2 TV’s flagship investigative program „Uvda,“ Milchan detailed a series of clandestine affairs in which he was involved and particularly how he helped purchase technologies Israel allegedly needed to operate nuclear bombs.
„I did it for my country and I’m proud of it,“ said Milchan, who ran a successful fertilizer company in Israel before making it big in Hollywood.
In a 2013 interview with the Hebrew media, Milchan acknowledged that he had worked for the Israel Bureau of Scientific Relations, which worked to secure scientific and technical know-how for secret defense programs.
That interview led US authorities to grant him merely a one-year visa extension instead of the 10-year visas he had previously received. Milchan sought Netanyahu’s help in obtaining a new 10-year visa, and the former prime minister arranged for the Hollywood mogul to speak directly to then-US secretary of state John Kerry on the issue.
