Zohar Palti, a former intelligence director with Mossad, said Israel’s military has the capability to launch a successful strike on Iran’s nuclear plants. Government officials will have to make “serious decisions” in the near future, Mr. Palti said.
“But, it’s very bad and we’ve never been closer to it,” Mr. Palti said.
He will be at the head of a coalition of conservative to far-right parties in Israel that are expected to take a hard line on a number of domestic and international issues.
Last month, President Joseph R. Biden let slip to a group of Iranian-American protestors that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, better known as the Iran nuclear deal isn’t going to happen.
“It’s dead, but we are not going to announce it,” Mr. Biden said in a video that surfaced in early November.
