Israel is facing "extraordinary" events and threats, said former IDF intelligence chief Amos Yadlin Maj. Gen (res.), Head of the Institute for National Security Studies at a major Tuesday night conference. Yadlin mentioned that his institute had organized the conference around five main issues, including: the Iranian nuclear threat, Arab uprisings across the Middle East, relations with the US and the relationship of the security budget to new economic priorities following the social protest movement.

He suggested that it was critical to try any third alternative to solve the Iranian nuclear issue besides Iran "getting the bomb" or Israel "bombing them." The Iran working group discussed several "third-way" alternatives and also put forward ideas about how to strategically handle the "day after" should Israel attack Iran.
