Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz on Tuesday said he does not expect that Israel will take military action against Iran this year. Instead of making a decision on Iran, the opposition leader said, Netanyahu is busying himself subverting US President Barack Obama.

Mofaz went on to accuse Netanyahu of sticking his hand deep into the upcoming US presidential elections, which he described as "irresponsible behavior and an error that harms the fabric of relations with [Israel's] biggest ally." Jerusalem's relationship with Washington need not be sacrificed to eliminate the Iranian nuclear program, he added.
