Iranian scientist's goal was "the annihilation of Israel": wife

From Iran's official FARS News, all but admitting that there is a nuclear weapons program:
The wife of Martyr Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast, who was assassinated by Mossad agents in Tehran in January, reiterated on Tuesday that her husband sought the annihilation of the Zionist regime wholeheartedly.

"Mostafa's ultimate goal was the annihilation of Israel," Fatemeh Bolouri Kashani told FNA on Tuesday.

Bolouri Kashani also underlined that her spouse loved any resistance figure in his life who was willing to fight the Zionist regime and supported the rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation.

Iran's 32-year-old Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast, a chemistry professor and a deputy director of commerce at Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was assassinated during the morning rush-hour in the capital early January. His driver was also killed in the terrorist attack.
Ahmadi-Roshan was officially the deputy director at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.

So an Iranian nuclear scientist had a life goal of destroying Israel. He seemed to know quite well why he was enriching uranium, and he enthusiastically shared this information with his wife.

And Iran is proud enough to share this little tidbit on an official news site.
