Iranian revolution will take place, says senior Israeli minister
Israel's Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon thinks Iran is heading for a a new revolution but he does not expect it will have any effect on Tehran's nuclear plans. "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 was quoted as saying by the JPost on Saturday. "(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," he continued. "It makes no difference regarding the nuclear issue, but this regime will fall."
