Former Mossad chief Tamir Pardo on Tuesday panned an alleged Mossad operation against Iran's Natanz nuclear facility as counterproductive to ending the nuclear threat. In an op-ed published in Foreign Policy along with Commanders for Israel's Security chairman Matan Vilnai, Pardo wrote that the hit on Natanz earlier in April and the Islamic Republic's response of increasing its uranium enrichment accentuate "both the risks associated with Iran’s nuclear and regional ambitions and the urgent need to address them."

The former Mossad chief, both in the op-ed and in recent public appearances, criticizes any Israeli strategy based on publicly banging heads with the US over a return to the 2015 nuclear deal. Rather, he wrote that, "the United States and Israel share a similar assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat and regional menace but are also strongly committed to the same goal of preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons." Further, he said, "Yet in practice no issue has divided Israeli and US policies and leaders more than the Iran nuclear deal," and that it is crucial going forward "to avoid the distrust and acrimony between the United States and Israel," that characterized maneuvering around the JCPOA.

Said with diplomatic skill. Somebody in Israel has to act moderately apologetic so AOC does not get enough leverage to reduce our military support. Pardo drew the short straw this time.
Next time, the entire Knesset may have to dress up in a big lizard suit and claim "Godzilla did it!"
