They have good reason to be concerned. Iran's nuclear facilities were built so that if there was a leak it would affect the Arabs and not Iran. Iran is on a major fault line and experiences many major earthquakes. Also some of these facilities are antiquated and built by us. Most do not know or realize Iran has an aging nuclear facility or that the US built it, ironic isn't it?
Atom's for peace was a program started by the US to build nuclear facilities for Pakistan and Iran. Rather ironic isn't it? The Tehran Research Reactor is an aging nuclear facility located in the heart of the Iranian capital. It was built by the United States as a nuclear research facility 40 years ago; it is now at the center of Iran's claims that it needs nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes only. The reactor makes radioactive materials for use in hospitals - for example in the treatment of cancer.

The centuries of acrimony and convoluted Relationships throughout the Middle East though I knew of it is mind boggling and worse than I thought so I invite you to read the report it is eye opening.
