Former IDF Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin on Tuesday stated that "the only existential threat to Israel in the year 2011 and in the years that follow, is Iran," Army Radio reported. Yadlin made the comments at a conference in Tel Aviv.

Yadlin said that if Iran succeeded in obtaining nuclear weapons, additional Middle Eastern countries would subsequently become nuclear armed.

The former intel chief warned that a nuclear armed Iran would be much more aggressive than the Islamic Republic currently is today.

Yadlin said that even the Israeli-Palestinian peace process would be negatively effected if Iran succeeded in obtaining nuclear weapons.
