Times of Israel – Iran is “dead scared of Israel,” and Israel has the means at its disposal to “take care of the Iranian threat,” former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy said in London.

Speaking at the UK Zionist Federation’s annual gala dinner last week, Halevy, who also served as Israel’s national security adviser, said the Iranian threat was “very serious,” that “the Iranians are misleading the world,” and that “every means” should be used to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But for now, he cautioned, “We shouldn’t discount negotiations” and shouldn’t “underestimate the president of the USA. [Barack Obama] understands the rule of game.”

    In fact, Iran Israel sheet.
    The need to possess the nuclear bomb is primarily a need to kneel the majority of Sunni Arab countries.

    Iran has successfully exported almost the only thing that Imam Khomeini wanted to export more than oil: the Islamic revolution.
    Thus we saw the alliance against nature between Sunni and Shiite terrorist groups.
    The only struggle that can unite these two is the most anti-Semitic hatred and the glory that results from destruction of the state of Israel.
    The Iranians know that the Arabs would be killed if a launch of a dirty bomb. They do not care.
    The Shiite world wants revenge against the Sunni world and the only evil he might do to the Jews can bring new followers.

    There is a particular Shia hadith circulating much in Iran, particularly interesting: “a black man from the West came to announce the coming of the Hidden Imam.”

    The mullahs have already expanded the avenues of Tehran for the coming of Imam Hussein told the Hidden Imam. That is to say if these people are crazy.

    One last thing: three quarters of the Iranian population is under 25 years. They have known that the mullahs’ regime.
    Iranians are the most nationalist of the region, and even if they do not want the current system, they will fight to the they will fight for the side of Khamenei possess the bomb.

    this man is one hundred percent correct. But the fact that the Iranians fear Israel is not going to work and in fact has not worked to deter them from building the bomb. This proves two things: One that the Iranians feel that they need to build the bomb in order to nuetralize the threat they feel from Israel, and two that they are both irrantional and suicidal. Both reasons compel the world to act to stop them sooner rather than later.
