Israeli Expert: Iran "a Significant Threat to Middle East Peace"

(Daily Express-UK) Ciaran McGrath - IDF Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Assaf Orion, of Israel's Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), says "Iran's obsession to 'wipe Israel from the map' needs little introduction. Iran is perceived as a threat as it both vowed to destroy Israel and is consistently devoting efforts to promote this goal. Its dual strategy combines the quest for nuclear weapons and a protracted and indirect proxy war against Israel, in which the IRGC Quds Force plays a central role." "The most serious conventional threat on Israel today is from Lebanese Hizbullah, Iranian-equipped, armed, trained, funded and inspired by Tehran, brandishing a rocket and missile arsenal larger than many nation states. The last years saw Iran trying to establish a similar capability in Syria and Israel countering its attempts." "With missiles falling on Riyadh it is no coincidence that Saudi Arabia and other Arab states see Iran as their worst enemy. In a region ridden with many perils, Iran is indeed the most significant single player of instability, terror, subversion and arms proliferation."
