Ya’alon: Israel doesn’t face any existential threats, not even Iran

Former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon said Thursday that Israel does not face any existential threats, ruling out even the threat posed by the Iranian regime.

"Iran’s nuclear program, which is due to be frozen in light of the the [nuclear] deal signed [by world powers] does not constitute an immediate, existential threat for Israel," he said in an address to the 16th Annual Herzliya Conference.

The former defense minister urged Israel’s current leadership to refrain from causing the Israeli public to fear such perceived threats.
