International Herald Tribune prints bid request for Iranian nuclear program

Hard to believe.
 
 
by Ezra HaLevi

(IsraelNN.com) The International Herald Tribune included in its paper last Wednesday (April 25) an ad seeking bids from corporations willing to build nuclear reactors for Iran.

The Tribune is owned and operated by the New York Times and distributed ... across the globe. The following copy of the ad appeared in the Israeli version, which is distributed by Haaretz's daily English paper:

The ad reads [typos and errors reproduced intact]:

The Vice President of Iran's nuclear program Gholam Reza Aghazadeh explained to Iran's state-run IRNA news agency that the tender presents an opportunity for Western nations to join in Iran's pursuit of nuclear capabilities. "The international tenders for construction of the two nuclear power plants [are] a good yardstick to test the Westerners' good will," he said.

IRNA quotes Aghazadeh promising that Iran will never again stop uranium enrichment and guaranteeing that Tehran will continue to work around the clock to install more centrifuges at its underground enrichment plant in Natanz, "until all 50,000 planned centrifuges are in place."

Israel and the US oppose Iran's nuclear program, which has been accompanied by open threats to annihilate the Jewish state on the part of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as well as the Islamic "Supreme Leader" of Iran Ali Khameini.

 
Haaretz Distributes Iranian Bid Request
Arutz-7 asked Haaretz's advertising department whether it considered rejecting the ad seeking builders for Iranian nuclear reactors. Manager Aviva Bronstein says Haaretz receives the International Herald Tribune as a finished product. "We sometimes don't even see it until it is in print," she said. "We do not review their ads, only those that appear in the Haaretz section of the paper."

A subordinate said that guidelines for ads would reject an ad calling for violence against a certain group of people. Asked by Arutz-7 whether the construction of the means to a nuclear bomb for a nation that has stated its intend to use it for genocide does not fall into that category, the woman, who declined to give her name, said: "I don't believe that falls into the same category."

Bronstein said that there is no ad that would conceivably lead Haaretz to refrain from distributing an edition of the International Herald Tribune.
