Top Israeli Ministers: Election Won’t Affect Iran

Both Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon said in published comments on Wednesday that policy toward Iran will be based solely on strategic interests. Israel believes Iran is developing a nuclear bomb and has repeatedly hinted that it might attack Iranian nuclear facilities in the coming months. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signaled this week that he may call parliamentary elections a year ahead of schedule — casting additional uncertainty over any Israeli military plans. – AP Via ABC
