Ya'alon: You Don't Have to Be in Intelligence to Know that Iran Is Lying

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said that "one does not have to be an intelligence agency member to know that Iran is lying without blinking." The "Iranian appetite to export the revolution through terrorism will only get bigger; and with the seal of approval it receives as a legitimate state that is a touching distance away from being nuclear, the danger to the West and its allies in the Middle East will be enormous." Former director-general of the Strategic Affairs Ministry Yossi Kuperwasser noted: "We have said many times that we retain the option of doing whatever we see as necessary in order to slow down the way the Iranians move forward toward a nuclear weapon." "There are ways to keep Iran from nuclear capability," he said, without elaborating. Kuperwasser said that once an accord is signed, "There will be a reluctance on behalf of many of those signed on the agreement to expose the violations of the Iranians." Israel's job will be to be a "watchdog" to tell the world what is happening inside Iran.
