Former Mossad chief Meir Amit has called upon western countries to unite in efforts to assassinate Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a media report at Jerusalem said.
"Even though in the past I have been opposed to assassinating Arab leaders, this case is different because it alone is the center of the nuclear issue," Amit was quoted as saying in the in the weekly "Kfar Chabad" magazine by "The Jerusalem Post".
The former Mossad head reportedly said that he did not perceive an existential danger to Israel following Iran's nuclear development, "but that is only on the condition that we do something about it."
Amit argued that Israel's nuclear facility in Dimona presented a deterrent against Ahmadinejad's intentions.
"I think that this is the only reason that he won't attack us," he was quoted as saying.
