Former National Security Council head Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Giora Eiland countered on Wednesdsay Minister-without-Portfolio Benny Begin's attack on public discussion surrounding a possible Israeli strike on Iran, saying that such debate is natural.

"It's hard to take a topic that the prime minister declares to be the most important to the state of Israel and then prevent public debate about it," Eiland told Army Radio.

"It is only natural that the media took an interest in it," he added.
