Israeli Minister: Iran Revolution Coming

Saturday, 20 Jun 2009 11:52 PM

Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon predicts the unrest in Iran will lead to a full revolution.

"Since I was head of Military Intelligence, I have said, and I say it again now, that some 70 percent of Iranians are opposed to the ayatollah regime," Ya'alon said, according to the Jerusalem Post. "[Opposition leader Mir Hossein] Mousavi and his wife have brought a new spirit of openness, and so I repeat -- there will be a revolution in Iran."

"It's impossible to hide the energy there now, and the Iranian regime is going to have to take that into consideration. It makes no difference regarding the nuclear issue, but this regime will fall."

Despite the violence over the disputed presidential election, Ya'alon believes "What is happening now will not change the nuclear issue, but it is still an encouraging development for the West."
