Maj. Gen. Uzi Dayan: We Can Only Rely on Ourselves


maj-gen-ret-uzi-dayan“Iran poses a credible threat, and we are the target, so let’s not delude ourselves,” Israeli Maj. Gen. (ret.) Uzi Dayan said in an interview.

Dayan believes that the Israeli homefront will withstand a barrage of Iranian missiles.

“We need to stop scaring the public. There is no point in this, particularly when it comes to the highly exaggerated assessments regarding Iranian retaliation and Iranian capabilities. The decision is a difficult one, even if it is of historic proportions, but there is nothing that Israel cannot handle.”

“People are wildly exaggerating the Iranian retaliation. At the most, the Iranians can activate Hizbullah and Hamas to fire missiles. This is very serious and dangerous, but this isn’t something that we haven’t faced in the past.”

“We have a good defense system. But the key factor should be what happens when Iran comes into possession of the bomb, and this could be even more dangerous. The Israeli civilian needs to ask himself if we can afford to live with a nuclear Iran. We don’t have to come to such a situation. This is avoidable.”
