Washington, DC - Israeli military intelligence has revealed its assessment that Iran will have sufficient enriched uranium to produce one nuclear bomb by the end of the year. Furthermore, it has been determined that Iran will have the missile capability to deliver such a bomb within two years.
Meanwhile, in the Democrats’ latest debate, candidate Bernie Sanders warned that President Trump “is lying and dragging the United States to war” with the Islamic Republic.
What do these latest developments mean for the ongoing conflict with Iran? From Jerusalem, Middle East expert David Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh in Israel and author of the book, “Trump and the Jews”.
Snapshot with David Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh Israel, is the author of the book, “Trump and the Jews” and five other books.

Question: How accurate is this latest report from Israeli intelligence that Iran will have a nuclear bomb in one year?
Answer: It’s extremely accurate. Israeli intelligence is the best in the world. In fact, Iran’s Suleimani was found and eliminated based on information from Israeli intel.
Question: Doesn’t the intel also say that the missile capability to deliver that bomb will only be attained within two years?
Answer: Yes, but two years passes by very quickly, plus there are more ways to deliver and detonate a nuclear device than just with missiles. Now is the time to prepare for that rapidly approaching eventuality.
Question: What kind of preparation are you suggesting?
Answer: I always say that the best defense is a good offense. I am calling for multiple preemptive strikes on Iran’s nuclear research facilities as the most effective way of stopping Iranian aggression.
Question: In the latest debate, Bernie Sanders warned that President Trump is lying and dragging us to war. Given what you’ve just recommended, is Bernie right? Should we just leave Iran alone?
Answer: We Israelis know the pain of war and terrorism far better than Bernie. I was wounded in a terrorist shooting attack and my three-year-old son was shot in the head in that attack. Furthermore, my other son, sixteen years old, just went for his first pre-conscription army physical. Bernie knows nothing about war, but one thing that should be clear, even to him, is that barring an internal overthrow of the Iranian regime, a preemptive strike may be needed.
