Ex-MI chief Ze'evi warns of impending world jihad 'tsunami'

Both HaAretz and YNet are reporting remarks made today by former Chief of Military Intelligence Aharon Ze'evi Farkash regarding an impending world jihad 'tsunami.'

The comments were made at a Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies conference in Tel Aviv University. Ze'evi noted that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinijad has been overheard promising the "end of history in two or three years," and said that Ahmadinijad should be taken seriously. According to Ze'evi, "Iran's determination to obtain nuclear arms represents the most significant strategic development in the Middle East against the free Western world and the United States in the recent period." Ze'evi says that Tehran will soon have nuclear warhead compatible surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 5,000 kilometers, putting Europe within striking distance.

The former intelligence chief also expressed concern over what he defined as the international community's moderate stance toward Tehran. "As long as the 'smoking gun' is not found, the interests of Germany, France and even Britain regarding Iran will take precedence… and this could be too late," he said.

Ze'evi also warned of the possibility of conventional war against Arab states and terrorists, saying that he foresees war with Syria and Hezbollah in the north as a possibility.

Yes, indeed....
