Iran is ‘dead scared of Israel,’ says ex-Mossad chief
Times of Israel ^ | March 16, 2013 | Staff

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.”

“I have the indelible impression that Iran is dead scared of Israel,” he said. ...

Israel has somewhere North of 800 nuclear weapons, some of them thermonuclear (”H-Bombs”) in their arsenal. Iran probably has 6 to 10 fission weapons and no real delivery system.

Most certainly agree with Bold predictions ...

There are a large number of people betting on certain matters that if they are wrong are going to cost an untold number of lives. Looks like people gaining press releases, for statements said, are content to line all of us up for chambers fired or unfired. The only problem is those chambers maybe are primed and about to be fired. Huge chance to take either way to walk willingly into one or be in front of one of those chambers for the entire planet.

He may know more than we do, But I'll be highly surprised if his trust in Obama turns out to be justified. Time will tell.

Yes, you offer a sober and realistic account of the balances of forces. But international relations also relies upon ideals, rhetoric, etc. It is hard to say what lies behind these statements in the media.

Indeed. Germany should have never been able to conquer Europe in WWII. France and Britain could’ve crushed the nascent Nazi movement as late as 1938. We could have obliterated North Korea and Vietnam with ease. But we didn't.

Israel has stated in the past that she will not only target those who target her directly, but those who enable and assist in those very efforts.

IOW, he’s cut from the same cloth as the jackasses in charge who ignored the mass of intelligence (including being given the actual start date by King Hussein of Jordan) indicating that the none-too-neighborly neighbors would attack in 1973.

Thanks BlackVeil.
