For years -- so mission was to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb and turning it on Israel his work was a 100% secret.
But now the former chief of Israel's secret intelligence agency is going public and what he has to say about an Israeli strike on Iran may -- You -- attack when you run before you.
Exploring all other approaches.
Then there's not -- -- we -- to do.
The regime in Iran is a very rational regime do you think Ahmadinejad -- Iraq is rational -- -- -- That's exactly -- Russian.
But -- in the two -- it's do you think there rational enough that they are capable of backing down from us.
No don't -- do it you -- viramune regime.
Is maybe not exactly rushing home based on what -- -- listens and -- But no don't -- considering golden conclusion.
What do you think of what the Israeli intelligence chief is saying and is it time for diplomacy with Iran first time running out or even has -- -- run out.
Congressman Allen west joins -- -- Cashman.
I'm surprised didn't statement from the former chief Israeli intelligence is that.
That's his -- surprised.
Again good evening glad to be with you Greta and you know I'm not gonna get into the the internal political battles there but I do find the fact that he says it.
But we're not -- is not as rational as well as that theocratic political totalitarian ideology.
Which is controlled body Ayatollah is the -- was -- -- I don't find that to be irrational either.
You know one of the things we have to understand was the theory of mutually assured destruction the math theory.
Which we kind of existed with the Soviet Union that does not play when you look at the theocracy that Iran is.
They are banking on the return of this I hit an.
And of course when you understand it's not receive an apocalyptic event itself -- that we'll bring that about.
So I think we have to take them -- for what who they are what they say.
The prime minister Netanyahu fifteen -- sixteen years ago was talking about.
The Iran -- threat and so time is running out and I think that it would be a very stupid thing for us not to take them.
Or -- who they are in for what they content to to promulgate.
I think the most difficult things as I look at if for me is said I don't have a sense this time line.
Is -- -- -- they have nuclear weapon capability in three weeks three months three years you know they'd they'd all that timeline.
Makes a big difference to me in terms of what you know what I would think that we should do.
In the intelligence has not been at least was not forthcoming in to us publicly.
And that I -- feel -- president by Amazon is in the same place in the intelligence says prime minister Netanyahu I don't think they have the same numbers.
Well I would defer to prime minister Netanyahu that's his neighborhood and I think he's well aware.
You look at what's just happened within the last 36 hours a little over a 100.
Mortars and rockets came flying into southern Israel from Gaza Strip.
And those came from radical Islamic terrorists who -- backed by Iran.
And we know that the Iran a Revolutionary Guards are in Syria.
Helping to show up which our side so.
We are seeing the extension of their regional hegemonic dominance and we know that there was a cleanup effort.
Coming from may neutron device that is used to.
Initiate a nuclear weapon of some sorts and that happened just last week.
So I think that now comes a time when we cannot be -- Neville Chamberlain.
And trust's independent they'll be piece of our times we have to stop the march toward this this effort that we see going on.
He hits so hard like you know this really get all the factors and I'm one of the of the -- of ways weighs in my thinking on this.
Is Ahmadinejad has said that he wanted to wipe Israel off the map and it -- There's been no effort to sort of back off from that EC NAS and say he's changed his mind or video over spoke there is just you know -- -- hyperbole.
Mean he is never ever at least as far as I can -- backed -- that's Estrich sitting out there that you know that direct threat to Israel.
You're absolutely right now I think history has shown us that.
When you try to compromise appease and negotiate with the mad man and a dictator of -- but it never ends up very well.
We also have to come to grips -- with the fact that before there was al-Qaeda.
The Islamic terrorist group which had brought about the most serious casualties and death against American soldiers.
And sailors airmen Marines was Hezbollah and they're backed by Iran -- -- and they.
A sort of a war and with -- -- war with -- for quite some time since they took those hostages back in the late 1970s.
One quick question what would you do about Syria would you provide them military help from military strikes -- Senator John McCain or would you have more of a wait and see add to what would you do.
No I would not get involved with Syria because you have to understand.
That's you would be step in until world war three scenario you have severe -- Revolutionary Guards a wants back -- up the sharp side.
We now know that you have radical Islamic terrorists we believe al-Qaeda -- with a quote unquote freedom fighters and if you're going to go into Iran I mean it's a serious.
You need to know exactly what the situation is on the ground -- who you're supporting we don't need to see another repeat of Libya and we don't need to violate the war.
Powers act again.
President thank you -- Always a pleasure thank you --
