 The Vienna agreement signed between world powers and Iran will "likely and necessarily lead to the use of force against Iran, at some stage or another, in order to halt its race toward nuclear weapons program," the former national security advisor to Prime Minister Netanyahu, Maj.-Gen. Yaacov Amidror, had warned.

In a detailed paper published by the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar Ilan University, where Amidror is a senior research fellow, he wrote, "It is clear that the agreement was signed in order to delay the Iranian nuclear bomb program, not to end it. And thus, when the program rears its head again it will be a problem several times more serious and far harder to deal with."


He added, however, that "there is no cause for hysteria. The agreement will not bring about Israel’s downfall, and in the best case scenario may even buy Israel some time to better prepare for confronting the Iranian challenge. Nevertheless, the map of reality should be read correctly, and not through rose-tinted glasses... The reality facing Israel (and the world) following the signing of the agreement is significantly more threatening than before."
