Military Intelligence: World Unlikely to Stop Iran

[Jerusalem Post] Herb Keinon - International pressure and UN sanctions will not stop the Iranian march toward nuclearization, the head of military intelligence, Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin, told the Israeli cabinet Sunday. He said the Iranians are playing for time, and the UN Security Council was acting slower than expected regarding sanctions. He said Iran's confidence was growing, and this was causing concern in the Sunni Muslim world. He noted that Hizballah had no intention of disarming on its own volition, or letting anyone else do it for them. He said Hizballah was trying to rehabilitate its military capacity, but at a "very, very low volume." Yadlin said that while Hizballah was not interested in a "second round," it was interested in encouraging Palestinian terrorism.
