Senior Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad warned on Friday that Iran is the central threat to Israel and said it should be prioritized as such by leaders in Jerusalem.

Speaking at the Ashkelon Academic College, Gilad admitted that there is no immediate nuclear threat," but said "there is certainly great motivation and determination [for one]" in Iran.

From a security perspective, Gilad said, Israel has never had to deal with so many fronts. "We need to know how to priorities what to deal with first. In my opinion, we're talking about the Iranian front." Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, he added, see and understand the depth of that threat and the danger it poses Israel.
