Gen. Amidror On Iran: “One Would Have To Be A Complete Idiot Not To Fulfill This Agreement”


Maj.-Gen (res) Ya’akov AmidrorIDF Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror, a former national security adviser, told Israel Radio on Sunday, “I think in the Middle East most of the countries, most of the leadership, do not like this agreement. It is an excellent agreement for Iran and therefore Iran will fulfill it down to the last detail. It has to rebuild its economy and enter the circle of international legitimacy because it can make, within this agreement, very great strides forward in the area of missiles and in the areas of nuclear capability. One would have to be a complete idiot not to fulfill this agreement at least in the first five to 10 years.”

The main question now for Israel is whether the International Atomic Energy Agency, which will monitor Iran’s compliance with the deal, acts in a way “more political or more professional,” Amidror said.

He also wondered “how much effort American intelligence will make, despite the agreement, to try to find Iranian violations.”

For the moment, he said, he had confidence in Israel’s developing system of antimissile defenses against any potential Iranian missile strike.
