Top Israeli Soldiers Against Bombing Iran

American Jews should start noticing

that an astonishing number of

Israel’s top soldiers and spies are warning against bombing Iran.

It began last summer,

when Meir Dagan,

fresh from a highly successful, eight-year stint as head of the Mossad,

called attacking Iran

“the stupidest thing I have ever heard.”

He noted that while in office,

he had joined with Yuval Diskin, director of the Shin Bet, and Gabi Ashkenazi, chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Fund,

to block this “dangerous adventure.”

Since then,

a throng of current and former security officials have issued similar warnings.

In December,

Dagan’s successor at Mossad, Tamir Pardo,

suggested that an Iranian nuclear weapon was not an existential threat.

This month,

another former Mossad chief, Efraim Halevy, declared that

“it is not in the power of Iran to destroy the state of Israel.”

Former IDF chief of staff Dan Halutz added that

“Iran poses a serious threat but not an existential threat”

and that bombing would mean

“taking upon ourselves a task that is bigger than us.”
