is won; says nuclear strike by Muslim terrorists 'very likely'

A third World War is already underway between Islamic militancy and the West
but most people do not realize it, the former head of Israel's intelligence
service Mossad said in an interview published Saturday in Portugal.

'We are in the midst of a third World War,' former Mossad chief Efraim
Halevy told weekly newspaper Expresso.

'The world does not understand. A person walks through the streets of Tel
Aviv, Barcelona or Buenos Aires and doesn't get the sense that there is a
war going on,' said Halevy who headed Mossad between 1998 and 2003.

'During World War I and II the entire world felt there was a war. Today no
one is conscious of it. >From time to time there is a terrorist attack in
Madrid, London and New York and then everything stays the same.'

Violence by Islamic militants has already disrupted international travel and
trade just as in the previous two world conflicts, he said.

Halevy, who was raised in war-time London, predicted it would take at least
25 years before the battle against Islamic fundamentalist terrorism is won
and during this time a nuclear strike by Islamic militants was likely.

'It doesn't have to be something very sophisticated, It doesn't have to be
the latest nuclear technology, it can be something simple like a dirty bomb
which instead of killing millions only kills tens of thousands,' he said.

Halevy served as an envoy for former Israeli Prime Ministers Yitzhak Shamir,
Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres and is a former Israeli ambassador to the
European Union.
