0 Israeli Senior Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad; "All options are open" for attack on Iran

Amos Gilad says that while Iran doesn't pose an immediate nuclear threat, Tehran has great motivation to develop one; says Iran believes Israel has no place under the sun.

Senior Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad warned on Friday that Iran is the central threat to Israel and said it should be prioritized as such by leaders in Jerusalem.
From a security perspective, Gilad said, Israel has never had to deal with so many fronts. "We need to know how to prioritize what to deal with first. In my opinion, we're talking about the Iranian front." 
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, he added, see and understand the depth of that threat and the danger it poses Israel.

Asked whether Israel should attack Iran, the Defense Ministry official said, "All options are open."

Israel, he explained, has no place under the sun in the Iranian perspective. "[Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah] Khamenei says that Israel has no place. Iran believes that it needs to be an empire equal in strength to the United States. That is the motivation driving the development of Iran's missile capabilities."

"As of now the Iranians have enriched uranium. Today the situation is that they are on the starting line - there is uranium, the knowledge is there, but they are not producing" nuclear weapons, he said.
