Israel should not -- and likely will not -- act against Iran's nuclear program without the consent of its closest ally the United States, Former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy told Channel 2 Saturday night.

"It would not be wise for Israel to operate on its own, and I believe it won't," Halevy said. "I didn't say it [Israel] won't act alone, but I think it won't do something that is against American interests."

In the interview, Halevy expanded on his controversial comments to the New York Times on Wednesday, in which he said
"If I were an Iranian, I would be very scared of the next 12 weeks."  

The coming weeks, he explained, will be crucial for Iran on several important fronts given the deterioration in Syria, the impasse of nuclear negotiations and the increasing bite of US and EU sanctions.
