Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On on Monday called for an emergency meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to discuss what she called a deterioration in the Israel-US relationship, in a letter sent to committee chairman Ronnie Bar-On.

Gal-On's letter claimed that "not only is Israel's government clashing with the US over how to deal with Iran's nuclear program, but it is also intervening in the US presidential election by favoring a friend of [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney."

Gal-On called for Netanyahu to be summoned before the committee for questioning.
