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.

Thanks for the ping. It's definitely war and I hope not too many more Americans are going to die before the spineless Dems realize it.
A herd of degenerates. LOL.
Kinda like the Dems!
DAMN I think we are WW3 right now or beginning of 21th century war conflict that probably would take 10 or 30 years to win
LOL, you mean one 'moonie' to the next!!
that pic is insane! what/where/how/why?
My sentiments exactly. TOTAL PACIFICATION of the enemy, as in WWII, is the ONLY way fight a WAR. That means breaking everything they have and killing everyone who doesn't unconditionally surrender!!!
I found it on the forum a couple of years ago. Looks like some cult gathering. Just named 'sheeple'.
Seems some have forgotten the almost 100,000 US KIA we lost in WW III (It wasn't cold.)
I dont think there are armories there. How about we make a quick grab of Mecca and make them come to it to free it of infidels.
Disagree. This is less like WWI/WWII (one war that) and much more like our Indian Wars in the US. We need more Andy Jacksons and Wm Shermans.
Just nuke Mecca... that would be my first act within minutes of taking the oath of office if I were elected president...
Animate that one
One wants to say "D'uh" after Homer Simpson, except that the majority here in the U.S. is busy shopping, and the leaders are busy hosting Ramadan dinners at the White House. Mark Helprin said pretty much the same thing right after 9/11. others too, and what? If we wish hard enough Dorothy, it'll all go away, won't it...
The liberals won't realize the danger until its too late. Even the cowardly fools won't be able to muster the will to fight. Damn them to hell!
I'm not going to write lol to that, it's too darned funny! Where shall I start??
