Israel: Cooperation with U.S. Is Preventing Iran Bomb


israel-maj-gen-res-amos-giladThe head of the Israel Defense Ministry’s Political-Security Bureau, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, told Channel 2 TV on the second day of Rosh Hashanah that international pressure and fear of military strikes had kept Iran’s nuclear program in check.

Gilad said Israel and its allies were in agreement that “the Iranian threat is a central threat” and that awareness of this cooperation had prevented Tehran from producing weapons.

“For now, as long as there is this unanimity, it seems to me that even the Iranians understand this and are not crossing the line…to build a nuclear bomb, not because they are merciful toward us, not because they like us, but because they fear a military or other response,” said Gilad.
