Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is too hesitant to be trusted with dealing a military blow to Iran’s nuclear program, a Zionist Union candidate and former army commando told a political gathering in Kfar Sava on Friday.

“I don’t trust Benjamin Netanyahu to advance a military option against Iran after we saw his hesitancy on a number of other decisions,” MK Omer Bar Lev said. “On the other hand, [Zionist Union chief] Isaac Herzog has the courage and the capability if there will be a need to attack Iran.”

Bar Lev’s remarks were reported by Army Radio.
