Broad Consensus in Israel over Security Challenges

(Israel Hayom) Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin interviewed by Yoav Limor - According to Amos Yadlin, who was closely involved in the destruction of Iraq's nuclear reactor in 1981 and Syria's reactor in 2007, "The vast majority [in Israel's Knesset], from both the coalition and the opposition, support advancing the following goals: preventing Iran from reaching nuclear capability, preventing Iran's military entrenchment in Syria and Iraq, thwarting Hizbullah's precision missile project, severely damaging and deterring Hamas, cultivating and strengthening the vital alliance with the U.S., maintaining good relations with Russia and China, promoting and expanding the Abraham Accords to other countries, and maintaining peace with Egypt and Jordan." Regarding the Iran nuclear agreement, Yadlin said, "Contrary to claims made in 2015 that the agreement blocks all of Iran's paths to a nuclear weapon, today it is clear that this agreement has many holes, and the Iranians have many ways to get around it....The Americans will not decide whether or not to sign the agreement because of Israel's position. They do not ask us."
