Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid started his political campaign for the next Knesset this week by accusing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of trying to drag the United States into war with Iran.

In his first English interview since entering politics – which will be published in full in The Jerusalem Post’s Simhat Torah supplement, Lapid said Netanyahu made mistakes by instigating a conflict with the US administration, betting that Republican candidate Mitt Romney would win the election, and threatening Iran with military action rather than focusing on intensifying sanctions.
