Former Mossad Chief Ephraim Halevy said that while the Iranian threat is real, the Islamic republic is not capable of annihilating Israel. During a lecture in Jerusalem yesterday, Halevy said “the State of Israel cannot be destroyed,” according to Haaretz.

He urged the government to offer Iran a diplomatic option, like the US, in parallel with stepping up efforts to foil Tehran’s nuclear plan.
“Israel cannot be destroyed for many reasons, some of which are known and others you can presume,” Halevy said. “There is a chance that something serious will happen here, but I tend to say the following when I am abroad: Israel cannot be destroyed. If you do not believe this, the don’t, but I suggest that you do not try it.”
