Mehrnaz Shahabi started this petition to United Nations Security Council and

We, the undersigned, strongly condemn the sabotage in the Natanz nuclear enrichment plant in Iran on 11 April 2021, as a form of nuclear terror. This attack has been almost universally attributed to Israel, including by the Israeli media, and confirmed by US and Israeli intelligence officials. Such attacks carry a serious risk of high level radioactive leakage which could potentially endanger the lives of thousands of innocent human beings and irreparably contaminate the environment causing long-term genetic malformations and disease, with far-reaching destructive consequences into the future.

It has been repeatedly verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that Iran’s nuclear programme is peaceful and under a strict monitoring regime. Israel, in contrast, is the only nuclear weapons state in the Middle East as it is in possession of a large arsenal of nuclear weapons, which is the reason for the country’s  refusal to join the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The deafening silence of the self-proclaimed international community in response to Israel’s nuclear terror could set a deadly precedent for its repetition and escalate into an endless chain of retaliations and an arms race in the already war-ravaged Middle East.  Therefore, we call on the UN and the Security Council to responsibly and unreservedly condemn and hold Israel accountable for repeated dangerous and profoundly irresponsible attacks on civilian nuclear installations and the assassination of Iranian scientists.  In addition, we urge UN member states to embark, as a matter of urgency, on the long-delayed task of nuclear disarmament of Israel and placing its nuclear programme under the supervision and monitoring of the International Atomic Energy Agency, in line with the long-standing drive to creating a Nuclear Free Middle East.

فراخوان برای خلع سلاح هسته ای اسرائیل ‌‌ و ایجاد خاورمیانه ای عاری از سلاح های هسته ای

ما امضاکنندگان این بیانیه خرابکاری در تاسیسات غنی سازی نطنز در تاریخ بیست و یکم فروردین ماه   سال جاری را به مثابه نوعی ترور هسته ای شدیدا محکوم می کنیم. این حمله تقریبا از سوی عموم، و از جمله از سوی رسانه های اسرائیلی، به رژیم مزبور نسبت داده شده، و ارتکاب آن توسط اسرائیل از سوی مقامات اطلاعاتی ایالات متحده و اسرائیل نیز مورد تایید قرار گرفته است. اینگونه خرابکاری ها، با خطر جدی نشت مقادیر قابل توجهی مواد رادیو اکتیو، می تواند جان هزاران انسان بیگناه را در معرض نابودی قرار دهد و با آلودگی غیر قابل جبران محیط زیست، باعث بیماری ها و عوارض ژنتیکی دیرپا، و سبب ابتلائات متعدد در نسلهای آتی شود.
 
به استناد راستی آزمائی های مکرر «آژانس انرژی اتمی»، برنامه هسته ای ایران صلح آمیز و تحت پادمان دقیق آن سازمان است. حال آنکه اسرائیل، این تنها دولت مجهزبه سلاحهای هسته ای در خاورمیانه، دارای زرادخانه بزرگی از سلاح های هسته ای است و به همین علت پیوستن به «معاهده عدم اشاعه سلاح های هسته ای» را نپذیرفته است.
 
سکوت مرگبار به اصطلاح «جامعه جهانی» در قبال این ترور هسته ای اسرائیل می تواند باعث اشاعه و استمرار چنین سنت مرگباری شود و با دامن زدن به زنجیره ای بی پایان از کنش و واکنش های تلافی جویانه و مسابقه تسلیحاتی، صلح و امنیت منطقه را با تهدیدی جدی مواجه کند.
 
از این رو، ما خواهان اقدامات مسئولانه سازمان ملل و شورای امنیت در محکومیت قاطعانه و پاسخگویی اسرائیل برای ارتکاب حملات خطرناک مکرر و عمیقا غیرمسئولانه به تاسیسات هسته ای غیرنظامی ایران و قتل دانشمندان ایرانی بوده، از اعضای سازمان‌ملل می خواهیم که، در راستای تلاش دیرینه برای ایجاد خاورمیانه ای عاری از سلاح های هسته ای، به فوریت نسبت به خلع سلاح هسته ای اسرائیل و قرار دادن برنامه هسته ای آن رژیم تحت نظارت و پایش «آژانس بین المللی انرژی هسته ای» اقدام نمایند.
