Israel and the US are “exactly on the same side” in efforts to combat the
Iranian threat, former Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin
told ahead of the second annual Jerusalem Post Conference,
which takes place on Sunday in New York City.
“We’re facing many of the
same threats – al-Qaida, Iranian nukes,” said Yadlin, director of the Institute
for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University.
On Tuesday, he made
waves when he announced at an institute conference that “if Iran continues toenrich uranium at its current rate, toward the end of the year it will cross the
red line in a clear manner.”
He is likely to address the subject of
Iran’s nuclear plans during his speech at the Post
conference before a capacity
crowd at the Marriot Marquis Hotel in Times Square.
Yadlin will also
appear on a panel – “The Generals Forum – How Will Israel Answer Threats from
Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza?” – along with former IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen.
(res.) Gabi Ashkenazi, former Mossad director Meir Dagan, former National
Security Adviser Uzi Arad and US Marine Corps Gen. (ret.) Robert
International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz will represent
the government at the conference and will appear on a panel called “Two States
for Two Peoples” with Arad, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Post
Senior Contributing Editor Caroline Glick.
Like last year, the keynote
speaker at the conference – entitled “Fighting for the Zionist Dream” – will be
former prime minister Ehud Olmert. Dagan, Glick and Ambassador to the US Michael
Oren will address the audience as well.
