Ya'alon on Iran: An Unconventional Regime Must Not Have Unconventional Abilities

(Jerusalem Post) An unconventional regime, such as the Iranian regime, must not be allowed to have unconventional abilities, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Wednesday. "This regime must not have military nuclear ability. Even if they don't throw a [nuclear] bomb right away, it is obvious that under nuclear protection [the regime] will dare to do more." "The Iranian regime actually is...an extremist Islamic-Shi'ite regime focused on defeating Western society. It's not just about ruling in Iran, [it's also] disturbing us [Israel] with Hizbullah or the Palestinian Islamic Jihad." The defense minister said Israel supports diplomacy. "We never said the military option was the first option on the table. As someone who experienced wars I can tell you that in every decision I make, the use of force is the last option, but sometimes there is no choice."
