Israeli Intel: Iran Hasn’t Decided On Nuclear Weapons

When the top U.S. military officer, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, visits Israel this week, his interlocutors will advise him that Israel believes Iran has not made the decision to build a nuclear weapon, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz. This would put the Israeli position in line with the latest reported U.S. intelligence estimate, which concluded last year that Iran hadn’t resumed a full-bore weapons program. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Benny Gantz will meet with Dempsey, who’s visit was scheduled for planning a now-canceled joint military exercise, amid rising regional tensions and reports that the U.S. warned Israel off an attack.
