The Not-So-Secret Iran-Israel WarStreaming Video - 2014
Former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Israel "a cancerous tumor that must be eliminated from the pages of history," and prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu dubbed Ahmadinejad "a reincarnation of Adolph Hitler," stating that Israel may attack Iran unilaterally in the near future. Behind the open hostility though is a history of cooperation between the two nations, beginning with Cyrus the Great's establishment of a Jewish community in Persia, through to mutually-beneficial economic and political alliances, and ending with Ayatollah Khomeini's coup against the Israel-friendly Shah in 1979. This program examines the fraught relationship between Israel and Iran, which includes the assassination of Iranian scientists and cyber-attacks on its nuclear program, and violent rhetoric from Ahmadinejad about the destruction of Israel. With Moshe Ya'alon, vice prime minister of Israel, and Iran's former Mossad chief Eliezer Tsafrir.
