CAIRO- Israel is constantly seeking to weaken Arab countries on the
scientific, technological and intellectual levels. It does this for
the purpose of imposing its domination on them after it has failed
through lies, in the past decades, to establish itself as the
strongest, developed and most destructive state in the region.
Consequently it obstructs any Arab attempt to achieve development in
the nuclear field by assassinating Arab scientists and specialists in
the nuclear field.

After the US invasion in 2003, Mossad, the national intelligence
agency of Israel, launched a massive campaign to eliminate Iraqi
scientists in order to end the dream of Iraq becoming a developed
nation. According to a British study, Iraq has the largest number of
scientists in the world in relation to its population.

Not only did Israel target Iraqi scientists but it also assassinated
a large number of Arab scientists. In 1952 the Egyptian atomic
research scientist, Sameera Mousa, was assassinated in the US. The
Egyptian atomic scientist, Yehya Al Mashad, was killed in 1980 in
Paris, the Egyptian microwave scientist, Sayed Bdeer, was eliminated
in his house in Alexandria in 1989 and the Egyptian atomic scientist,
Sameer Najeeb, was killed in Detroit in 1967.

Israel also exerted pressure on developed western countries to bar
Arab students from joining certain specialized institutions. Some
countries prevent students from the third world from studying atomic
and missile sciences.

A British State Department official said his country was reviewing
the opening of sensitive and important specialized institutions
(nuclear engineering, missile technology, jet stimulation and
chemical and germ technologies that could be used in building nuclear
and missiles potentials) before foreign students.

In 2002 the US House of Representatives approved a ban on students of
seven countries, including four Arab states, to study in certain
specialized fields.

Assassinations

The Egyptian Professor, Yehya Al Mashad, was one of the most
important nuclear scientists in Iraq . He was working for the Iraqi
Atomic Energy Agency and at the same time he was lecturing at the
Engineering Faculty at the University of Baghdad .

Mashad had managed to rebuild the Iraqi nuclear oven which was
destroyed in 1979. He also supervised the transfer of the oven from
the Port of Toulon in France to Iraq .

After that he became the spokesman and president of the Iraqi Nuclear
Program. He also facilitated a deal with France to acquire enriched
uranium.

In 1980 he was killed by Mossad in a hotel in Paris .

The Egyptian atomic scientist, Professor Sameera Mousa, left Egypt in
1951 for the US to conduct research at Saint Louis University . After
a few months, when asked to remain at the university, she
replied, "my precious homeland, Egypt , awaits me". Before returning
home, on her way back after visiting a nuclear laboratory in the US ,
she was killed by a truck which crashed into her car.

Mousa was born on March 3, 1917 in the Sinbou Village of Al
Gharbeyyeh Governorate. She won many prizes in her primary education.
She obtained a Masters degree in gas-thermo communication. She
obtained a scholarship in the UK and was able to complete her
doctorate dissertation in two years.

Mossad also assassinated Professor Mustafa Mashrefah who was the
first Arab scientist taking part in space research and one of Albert
Einstein's main assistants. He was called "The Arab Einstein."

The Egyptian scientist Dr. Nabil Al Laqeeni disappeared mysteriously
in what was then Czechoslovakia . The Egyptian scientist Dr. Jamal
Hamdan was killed by Mossad and all his books and publications have
disappeared.

Dr. Salwa Habib was killed by Mossad after publishing her book "The
Israeli Influence in Africa ." She was found slaughtered in her
apartment and the Egyptian police failed to find the killer.

The nuclear Palestinian scientist Nabil Ahmed Fleifel, from Al Am'ari
refugee camp, was assassinated by Mossad.

Mossad assassinated the Lebanese Physicist Ramal Hassan Ramal who was
one of the 100 best Physics scientists in the world and was
dubbed "The Edison of the Arabs."

Mossad kills 350 Iraqi scientists

According to a report, Mossad, in cooperation with the US occupation
forces in Iraq , have killed 350 Iraqi nuclear scientists and more
than 200 University professors.

The report, prepared by the US Secretary of State and referred to the
US President George Bush, said that Mossad and commando groups had
been active in Iraq since the invasion in 2003. They targeted Iraqi
nuclear scientists after the US had failed to convince them to work
for the US or move to the US .

Some of them were forced to work in public research centers in the US
but the majority refused to work with American scientists in certain
tests, the report added. Many of them fled to other countries.

The scientists who refused to leave Iraq were severely interrogated
and were tortured. The report stated that Mossad saw that they had to
be eliminated because they posed a threat to the future of Israel .
Mossad found that the best way to assassinate them is through the
ongoing violence in Iraq .

The report added that the Pentagon was also convinced that this was
the best way and special Israeli commando groups were prepared to
fulfill this task. The US team gave assistance to the Zionist troops
and the team prepared the curriculum vitae of the scientists and
provided access to them.

According to the report, the operations have targeted more than 1000
Iraqi scientists and one of the main purposes of the bomb blasts
spread in many cities in Iraq is to eliminate the scientists.
