Iran: Israel's Number One Threat

This week, tthe Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University released its annual report on the threats facing Israel. Number one remains the danger of a nuclear Iran.

Amos Yadlin, the former chief of Israeli military intelligence, now directs the INSS. At their press briefing, he explained how advanced Iran's nuclear program is, why they haven't "broken out" yet, and that 2013 might be the year the nuclear showdown in the Middle East reaches a climax.

His analysis is significant because as one journalist commented at the briefing, "he's been in the room" (where Israeli leaders have made decisions concerning Iran).
