WESTERN countries are fighting World War III and it would last a generation, former head of Israel's Mossad spy network, Efraim Halevy, said in Melbourne yesterday.
Mr Halevy, who ran Israel's intelligence agency between 1998 and 2002, said a major terror attack was possible in Australia.
But he said the public didn't appear to realise the seriousness of the threat.
"The threats today are aimed at destroying the whole way of life in democratic societies . . . of turning back the wheel more than 1000 years," Mr Halevy said.
The security adviser to former prime minister Ariel Sharon and now head of strategic studies at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said Islamic militancy was squarely aimed at establishing an international caliphate.
"The goals here are global. The goals here are absolute," Mr Halevy said.
"This is a modern-type third world war . . . (but) it's very difficult to convince the public there is a war at all."
Mr Halevy said the three major threats the world faced were weapons of mass destruction, Islamic terrorism and risk of rocketing oil and energy prices, and said all those threats emanated from the Middle East.
"If the world is threatened by the Middle East there is no option but for the world to come to the Middle East," he said.

War sucks. But if your going to fight for your believes you must fight it as a war!
It is indeed WWIII and Europe has already lost to islam because of their economic dependence on muslim immigrants. The entire Western world is infected with the bacteria of islamofacism and the ignorant dupes are focused on who in Hollywood is screwing whom, and consumed with modern "rights" like homosexual marriage and fairness for captured terrorists. The West has taken its collective eye off the ball, and we are losing the war against islam precisely because we are winning the so-called "war on terror". Those of you with insight will know what I mean.
OK, but it's World War IV.
If we fought all-out, we'd win quickly.
The US has 1000 times the fighting potential of all the countries in the Middle East put together.
This war will last until they fear us more than they despise us.
They want our blood. So, let's take theirs first.
Am I the only one that thinks this action, while perhaps "imprudent", would save lives in the big picture?
I don't know what it is, but I always feel like I'm missing a piece of the picture. It seems like there is a "right" thing to do.
The PC mindset is what will end our civilization. We need to remember that the right thing might always be the "nice" thing. As badly as I'd love for everyone to be at peace, that's not possible when "the other guy's" idea of a good time is slitting my throat.
Reminds me of that scene out of Indiana Jones. Here is this masked villian slashing his sword around ready for action and, there, right on our hip, is a pistol. My dad always reminded me of the old axiom, "Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.".
So, what exactly are we waiting for? Hmmm?
Or as someone here argued, World War 0, started around 622 AD.
"It's war already, says spy"
THANKS for the pings.
"In war, there is no substitute for Victory"....MacArthur
"Ok, who lit one!
If these Eastern Putzes pull of a few more biggies, the rest of the world will turn them into a glass factory.
"If the world is threatened by the Middle East there is no option but for the world to come to the Middle East."
An unequvocal affirmation of the Bush Doctrine of Preemption, aka we're coming over to your backyard to kick your ass, so that you can't come near ours.
Solid common sense, that any flyover territory, gun-toting, bible-thumpin', homophobic white Christian hillbilly can understand fully by the time he is 10 years old.
