American Scholar: Iran Under Threat from Israel


Iran and not Israel is under an existential threat, according to Anthony Cordesman, one of the leading researchers on the Iranian nuclear program, in new research published Friday in the Ma'ariv daily.

The former national defense assistant to Senator John McCain claims that Israel has acted in recent years to extend the range of its missiles and pose a threat to all of Iran's major population centers, ahead of Iran's nuclear age. He says Iran is now within the range of Israeli missiles that carry hydrogen warheads and not just ordinary atomic warheads.
