Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan over the weekend stated that an Israeli airstrike on Iran's nuclear reactors would be "a silly idea that would not grant any advantage." Dagan, making his first public appearance since recently stepping down as Mossad chief, made the comments at a leadership and security conference at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

"Whoever attacks Iran must understand that he may start a regional war in which  missiles from Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon will be fired. The Iranian problem must be made an international problem and we must continue to act to delay the development of Iran's nuclear capabilities," Dagan said.
