Several Iranian nuclear facilities, similar to this one, were visited by foreign diplomats after an invitation from Tehran.

Iran has invited the world—sans the U.S.—to come and tour several of its nuclear sites. Diplomats from other countries did visit the sites in what Iran says was an effort of good will and transparency.

China, Russia and the European Union refused the invitation. —JCL

The BBC:

A group of foreign diplomats is touring some of Iran’s nuclear sites, as Tehran seeks to build support for its controversial nuclear programme.

Iran said it was a gesture of goodwill and transparency, but the US was not invited - while China, Russia and the EU refused the invitation.

Tehran said its uranium enrichment programme was progressing “strongly”.

It was responding to US claims that the programme was being hit by international sanctions.

Can make any merit with the subject of Israel so you have to disparage Jews by including them into the coversation.

Tired old trick, change the subject from the welfare racist state of Israel to worldwide Jewry, many of which have even worse things to say about Israel than I do.

You are half way amusing.

You couldn’t pay me to visit that armpit of humanity Israel, where locals spitting on the non-Jews is considered normal.

Issues, issues. You have some deep-seated issues with Jews. Get help or don’t - no matter, because all you can and will ever do is sit in your little Maryland home harboring your prejudice. Meanwhile, Jews all over Maryland and the US and the world continue to live and learn and grow their communities, all the while not giving a rat’s ass what you think or say. Stop thinking in terms of me paying you, too. Not paying you anything, except a little bemused attention.
=====================

When was the last time Israel invited International diplomats to tour their nuclear facilities?

How about never? Is never good enough for you? Why should they invite “diplomats”? Israel’s national security interests and imperitives are no concern of any so-called “diplomats”. Diplomacy is for diplomats. State security installations are for those with proper clearances and credentials. You will have neither. Dream on, Crab-Boy.

Shooting up International diplomats, I could expect nothing less from the pariah state of Israel.

I hope you choke on your popcorn.

And you’re a diplomat? Uh huh.
Don’t get too hung up on that razor-wire - you’ll positively fry in that incredible Negev sun, if you haven’t already bled your way to a fitting demise.

Serves you right for sticking your snotty nose where it definitely doesn’t belong smile

After this tour its Dimona’s turn.

Can’t wait to watch you in your brave mission to breach the security fence. I’ll make sure I have lots of popcorn.
