According to local press, the Israeli leadership has been “climbing down
from the tree” this week with a distinct change in tone from Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu regarding attacking Iran. The change in mood is
said to be linked to rising tensions with the Obama administration and
new rumours that Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak has changed his
mind and is no longer supporting a unilateral attack by Israel. Meanwhile
members of Netanyahu’s party, namely fmr minister Tsachi Hanegbi and
right-wing parliamentarians such as Tzipi Hotovely have been coming out
in support of the Prime Minister. The Real News’ Lia Tarachansky
summarizes last week’s press in Israel in relation to Iran.
