Well what do you know... another sane guy in the Mossad..
Mossad chief: Nuclear Iran not necessarily existential threat to Israel

Tamir Pardo says Israel using various means to foil Iran's nuclear program, but if Iran actually obtained nuclear weapons, it would not mean destruction of Israel.

On Tuesday evening, Pardo addressed an audience of about 100 Israeli ambassadors. According to three ambassadors present at the briefing, the intelligence chief said that Israel was using various means to foil Iran's nuclear program and would continue to do so, but if Iran actually obtained nuclear weapons, it would not mean the destruction of the State of Israel.

"What is the significance of the term existential threat?" the ambassadors quoted Pardo as asking. "Does Iran pose a threat to Israel? Absolutely. But if one said a nuclear bomb in Iranian hands was an existential threat, that would mean that we would have to close up shop and go home. That's not the situation. The term existential threat is used too freely."

Yep, the warmongers in America, Europe and Tel-Aviv don't want facts, they want war.

Remember what the last head of Mossad said :
Former Mossad chief: Iran far from achieving nuclear bomb

Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan said Monday that a military strike on Iran was "far from being Israel's preferred option," telling the Council for Peace and Security that "there are currently tools and methods that are much more effective."

Dagan also said Iran's nuclear program was still far from the point of no return, and that Iran's situation is "the most problematic it has been in since the revolution" in 1979.

The current head of Mossad goes even further saying that even if Iran got nukes, it's way overhyped and they aren't an existential threat to Israel (aka wouldn't nuke Israel if not attacked first)... Something which I totally agree on... ever see leaders of religions or countries sacrifice themselves for the cause? Me neither.

Hell if the Soviets, Mao and Kim Jong Il didn't launch nukes at anyone, the Mullahs sure as hell won't launch. Fact is, people in power want to keep their power. If they use their nukes on Israel or whoever, they lose that power. Pretty simple.

I heard this report on PressTV. There seems to be a struggle between the elected government and security services in Israel. While extremist like Netanyahoo are booking for a war with Iran, cooler heads are against it.

The Iranians, as they are, are a threat to the gulf kingdoms and this dimishes their hostility of these kingdoms towards Israel. Israel can take up a role as an honest broker between the gulf states and Iran and forge greater back channel links with the sultans in dealing with Iran. Israel can also give advise on suppressing democracy movements amongst the Arabs on the street.

The peoples of the Middle East are overwhelmingly against Israel so Israel can support the dictators and torturers that rule them. Iran can also be used to keep these leaders and dictators in check by playing the role of boogie-man. It is for this reason I do not think a portion of the Israeli estblishment war with Iran.

It could also be theater to lull the Iranians into apathy until there country is destroyed.

This is pretty self-evident to be true to anyone with a brain, which sadly, alot of the warmongering politicians and even MSM reporters seem to lack. If North Korea didn´t use nukes on the US despite their hate for them, then Iran sure as hell won´t use it unless attacked either.

Iran with a nuclear bomb would be no different than Iran without one. Well, except they'd be able to better deter aggression. Iran isn't a threat to anyone but themselves.

You know what's funny? That this thread ain't getting any attention.

The warmongers are nowhere to be seen because deep down, they know the head of Mossad is right.

The warmongers aren't here because you just dropped the knowledge bomb on them. They can't perpetuate lies in the face of truth.

and if anyone thinks that Iran will use a nuclear bomb on Israel he is crazy because by doing that they will also kill muslims , unless of course they want to .
