Mossad: Iran Remains Our Chief Concern

Iran heads the list of Israel’s concerns both in political circles as well as in the Israeli Intelligence Community. Late last week, the Chief of Israeli Mossad, Yossi Cohen, announced that Iran is at the top of Mossad’s priorities. “All Iranian nuclear, long-range missile and precision missile activities, Iran’s regional spread and its support for terrorist organizations are a challenge to the security of the state of Israel and its citizens.” He added that all the bodies and "men and women" of the intelligence agency work together "as a single fist" to achieve results. Cohen’s remarks were made at an annual ceremony hosted by President Reuven Rivlin, who praised the intelligence agency. “In the Mossad’s dictionary, you will not find the word ‘impossible,'" he said. "For the Mossad, excellence is not a luxury, it is the only way to survive in the world of the shadows.” Rivlin said Israel's enemies "lay in wait" looking for an opportunity to attack. "They are frustrated by their failure to harm us, and never stop searching for a way to catch us unawares. To protect ourselves in the neighborhood we live in, we have no option but to be sharper and better." (VFI News)
