"Iran's success in nuclear weapon issue will keep Jewish from immigration to Israel, as well as will become a reason for most Israelis leave the country and put an end to 'Zionist Mosque'," Efraim Sne, and MP in Knesset and former Israeli Deputy Defense Minister, said, the Jerusalem Post reported.

"The nuclear weapon in Ayatollas' hands will become an intolerable reality for Israel," Sne said at the conference on the Iranian nuclear program in the National Institute to Study Security Challenges in Tel-Aviv.

"Decisions in Israel will be taken under the Iranian permanent influence, this will be an end of 'Zionist Mosque", the expert said.

EfraimKhalevi, former head of the 'Mossad' (national intelligence agency of Israel), condemned Israeli political leaders for their statements about 'deadly Iranian threat'.

"We are a super power in the Middle East. The time has come and we should behave like a super power. Iran's goal is to become a super power in the region," Khalevi said.

Sne believes that the Israeli Defence Army is capable to implement military attack on Iran. "We brought up in the country when political leaders wanted anything and professionals know how to do it. I am sure that it has not changed in 2008," Sne said.
