According to Russia Today, "Israel's intelligence service Mossad has acknowledged, just like their American counterparts, there is no proof Tehran is carrying out a nuclear weapons program, a source in U.S. intelligence told the New York Times." The New York Times article referred to by Russia Today reports that "Mossad, Israel's intelligence service, agrees with the American intelligence assessments, even while Israeli political leaders have been pushing for quick, aggressive action to block Iran from becoming what they describe as an existential threat to the Jewish state. 'Their people ask very hard questions, but Mossad does not disagree with the U.S. on the weapons program,' said one former senior American intelligence official, who, like others for this article, would speak only on the condition of anonymity about classified information. 'There is not a lot of dispute between the U.S. and Israeli intelligence communities on the facts.'"
