Ya’alon: Arab states are seeking out nukes in wake of Iran deal

February 15, 2016   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , , ,

Israel is “seeing signs that states in the Arab world are preparing to get nuclear weapons, because they are unwilling to sit quietly with a nuclear Iran, or an Iran on the verge of a nuclear bomb,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told fellow defense ministers at the Munich security conference on Saturday.

 

Israel is closely monitoring the enforcement of the nuclear deal reached between world powers and the Islamic Republic, Ya’alon said, warning that even if Tehran keeps to the agreement, “15 years [when it expires] is around the corner.”

 

Asked to comment on Ya’alon’s warning, Dr. Emily Landau, who heads the Arms Control Program at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, said some Arab states will have more motivation to go down the nuclear path, following the deal reached with Iran.
