Israeli Security Expert Views Iranian Nuclear Threat

(Israel Hayom) Gideon Allon - MK Avi Dichter, who served as head of the Israel Security Agency and as public security and homefront defense minister, was asked in an interview: "Does Israel have the capacity to prevent the Iranian nuclear threat from becoming a reality?" Dichter: "It makes no sense for us to focus all our activity on defense, only to discover that our defense capabilities stand at 80%, so if 10 nuclear bombs are fired at Israel, eight will be intercepted and only two will fall. That's a totally unacceptable concept of defense....I'm happy to say that the people in Israel who are in charge of this matter are methodically building defensive and offensive capabilities, and there is no intention of allowing any Iranian platform - a missile, a plane or anything else - to reach us, and certainly not carrying nuclear weapons." Hizbullah has "suffered heavy battle casualties [in Syria]. Over 1,600 of their fighters have been killed, and 6,000 wounded. There are also some Hizbullah fighters being held captive by the rebels. That's a lot for an army of 30,000 people."
