An Israeli military strike has been granted increased legitimacy due to the events of the past week, former minister Tzachi Hanegbi said Saturday at a cultural event in Kiryat Motzkin.

Putting a positive spin on what can be considered Iranian diplomatic victories in the past week - Iran's successful hosting of the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Tehran and the country's continued expansion of its illicit nuclear program as detailed by a new IAEA report - Hanegbi said that the possibility of a military strike could actually have been strengthened.
