    Gideon Levy is a prominent Israeli journalist and author of the weekly column Twilight Zone in the Israeli paper Haaretz. He is also an editorial board member of Haaretz. Between 1978 and 1982 Levy served in the Shimon Peres office when Peres was the leader of the Labor Party.

    Precis

    The rift in Israel between the political leadership’s push for an attack on Iran, and the security establishment’s opposition widened in recent weeks. Three new voices spoke out on the question of Iran in the Israeli press, throwing doubt into the motivation of those who push for an attack, namely Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netnayahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak. The list includes Israeli Army Chief of Staff, Benny Gantz, as well as his predecessor, Amnon Lipkin-Shahak, Former head of the Mossad, Meir Dagan, and others. At the end of April, Yuval Diskin, former head of the Israeli internal intelligence agency, the SHABAK, spoke out against the attack as well. The Real News' Lia Tarachansky spoke to renown Ha'aretz journalist Gideon Levy, and Major General Shlomo Gazit, the former head of Army intelligence, and the first head of the Israeli agency in charge of the occupied Palestinian territories.
