Israel's head of Military Intelligence, Maj. Gen. Aharon Ze'evi, spoke at a seminar at the University of Haifa today. His comments on Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons was not encouraging.
According to estimates, Iran is not currently capable of enriching uranium to build a nuclear bomb, but it is only half a year away from achieving such independent capability - if it is not stopped by the West
What is even worse, however, is Europe's attitude to this.
The Iranians can reach Portugal with nuclear weapons. This doesn't worry the Europeans. They tell me that during the Soviet regime as well they were under a nuclear threat, and I try to explain to them that Iran is a different story.
Clearly, Europe has decided to accept a nuclear armed Iran, and hope for the best.
