    Yet another disbeliever in Iran's nuclear readiness weighs in. After Lt.Gen Gantz expressed his doubts regarding the state of Iran's nuclear missile program and Meir Dagan, former Mossad chief also publicly declared his misgivings about Netanyahu's plans of a preemptive strike against Iran last month, and even Shimon Peres indicated that he thought that an attack on Iran by Israel at this time and without the backing of its allies would be ill-advised, Yuval Diskin, former Shin Bet chief now goes a step further and publicly expresses distrust in Netanyahu's hyperbole and fear-mongering rhetoric. It should give pause to all - even to Netanyahu himself - to see the top echelon of the Military as well as of the Intelligence Services and the President of the country himself, give voice to the identical sentiments which happen to be also shared by the U.N. the U.S. and Israel's European allies.
