As tensions between Israel and Iran continue to rise, Ben Caspit speaks with former Mossad Chief Efraim Halevy, who says Israel should revisit the issue of the Iran nuclear deal. "It would be a mistake to adopt the policy adopted by Israel when President [Donald] Trump came in, convincing him to leave the [deal]…Once you leave an agreement you no longer have a leverage on the other side," he said. Halevy believes that ultimately the best way to serve Israel’s interests should be opening a dialogue with Iran. From meetings he had with senior Iranians in the past decade, he concludes there is a desire in Tehran to have a dialogue, but for that to happen, the two sides must respect each other.
