On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the former head of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency Efraim Halevy. He discusses the alleged Israeli assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. He is also challenged by Afshin Rattansi on whether the assassination is illegal under international law and whether Fakhrizadeh was a legitimate target, Israel’s airstrikes on Syria and whether they actually aid Al-Qaeda and ISIS, the BDS movement, why he believes that BDS is not a threat to Israel and is being overhyped by Netanyahu and much more! Finally, we speak to Sam Medhi Torabi, Director of the Risalat Strategic Studies Institute in Iran. He also discusses the assassination of nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, why Iranian retaliation is a certainty, the Coronavirus situation in Iran and how Fakhrizadeh was involved in the development of an Iranian coronavirus vaccine, Iran’s ultimate aim to expel US forces from the Middle East/West Asia, why coronavirus has proved the West doesn’t see Iranians as equal human beings, the lack of condemnation and action from the European Union over the alleged Israeli, US-backed assassination of Fakhrizadeh, misperceptions of Iran surrounding the Trump and Netanyahu administrations and much more!
