Iran wants nuclear power/bomb. They claim nuclear power is their given birth right. Iran hates the Jews. But who is the famous person that invented Nuclear energy in the first place?

Do you think Iranian scientists stab themselves in the eye everytime they look at the formula E = MC hammer? Not to mention a whole slew of physics equation relevent to nuclear developement were developed by a particular group of people.

Einstein helped with it, but there were serveral who actually thought up the design/formula/etc.

I guess it could be ironic.

You don't know what irony means?

Take this scenario for example:
You're trying to save someone's life, but they end up dying because of what you're doing.

That's ironic.

Irony:

"Joe kept his spear gun on the top shelf so the kids would not accidentally shoot themselves with it. One day, Joe could not see the gun on the top shelf, so he got a ladder and climbed up there to check on it. He nudged the top shelf, and the spear gun shot him in the head."

Isn't Oppenheimer jewish?
Looking at the list of names, I'd say about 2/3 of the project scientists were Jewish, if not more.

But going back to the OP, if Iranians stabbed themselves in the eye, every time they used something that was invented by a Jew, they'd long have stabbed themselves to death.

now that's irony

All the while, Oppenheimer was under investigation by both the FBI and the Manhattan Project's internal security arm for his past left-wing associations. But Groves still thought Oppenheimer too important to the ultimate Allied goals to oust him over this suspicious behavior.

Do you really think some scientist would "stab himself in the eye" because of who came up with the original theories that led to the creation of a certain technology?

It's like rain, on your wedding day, or a free ride, when you've already paid.
