What exactly is the job of the Israeli nuclear commission?
The commission not only oversees Israel’s nuclear facilities, but has also acted in an advisory capacity to Israel’s government in recent years, analyzing technical information to try to determine the length of time it would take for Iran to produce a nuclear weapon.
And what does it think about the recent nuclear deal?
The interview below with Yossi Alpher who was the Mossad’s former Iran desk officer reveals how the Mossad turned down a request by former Iranian Prime Minister Shapour Bakhtiyar to assassinate Ayatollah Khomeini.
He also talks about how if the current regime in Iran changes its stance towards Israel, there would be a very long line of Israelis willing to reestablish ties and to do business with the regime in Tehran, and the sense of betrayal which some Israelis feel towards president Obama.
Yossi Alpher has recently published a book on Israel’s relations with non-Arab countries in the region, including Iran in the 70s.
