Military Intelligence: Iran Aims to Destroy Israel

Iran’s goal is to eliminate the State of Israel, Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin, the new head of Military Intelligence, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Tuesday.

Yadlin stressed that statements by Iranian President Ahmadinejad about the need to “wipe Israel off the map” were not mere slips of the tongue, and should be taken seriously.

Iran is likely to acquire the capability for manufacturing enriched uranium in industrial quantities within six months to a year, Yadlin said.

If its nuclear program suffers no disruptions, it will have its first nuclear bomb in three to four years.
