Former prime minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that public discussions over a potential strike on Iran do not help Israel, and indeed harm the country's international standing.

Speaking at the Ono Academic College, Olmert said "I am part of the circle that believes that Israel can not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons... The question is how do we proceed with this?"  Olmert also said that in the past, during his tenure as prime minister, there were no public discussions over Iran.
