Turkey and Brazil negotiate uranium shipment deal with Tehran

The deal calls for Iran to ship 1,200 kilograms, or 2,640 pounds of low enriched uranium to Turkey, where it would be stored. In exchange, after one year, Iran would have the right to receive about 265 pounds of material enriched to 20 percent from Russia and France.

 The Israelis, of course, are whining that Iran is "manipulating" Turkey (and, I suppose, Brazil, which helped to make the deal).  No surprise; Netanyahu needs that Iranian "existential threat" of a "second Holocaust" to deflect attention from the Gaza blockade, construction in Jerusalem, and the racism of the West Bank outpost "settlers."
