Absence of Iran nuclear deal could spell danger for Israel - analysis
Parts of the intelligence and defense establishment view no deal as much worse than even a bad deal.

The absence of an Iran deal could spell more imminent nuclear danger for Israel and its allies, intelligence sources have indicated to The Jerusalem Post, although both the governments of Benjamin Netanyahu and Naftali Bennett have opposed the deal. Some in the intelligence and defense establishment view no deal as much worse than even a bad deal. The rationale from these sources is that Iran could jump to 90% weaponized uranium in a matter of weeks.

In addition, when adding up all the different levels of enrichment Iran has accumulated, it could break out to not only one nuclear bomb but in some estimates to as many as four. True, Iran has not yet mastered a number of weaponization issues relating to detonation and delivery of a nuclear bomb. However, members of the intelligence and defense establishment who are in favor of a bad deal as opposed to a no-deal scenario say the latter might embolden Iran to try to master those skills, even at the risk of a potential attack by Israel or the US.
