Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said on Saturday that the international community must increase sanctions against Iran.
Speaking with Israel Radio, Shalom said that "the most important step we can take
now is to sanction the Iranian Central Bank."
Shalom also stated that former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin should not have spoken out about the Iranian threat in public.
On Friday night, Diskin sharply criticized Israel's top leadership at the Majdi Forum in Kfar Saba, saying they "present a false view to the public on the Iranian bomb, as though acting against Iran would prevent a nuclear bomb. But attacking Iran will encourage them to develop a bomb all the faster."
"I think that Diskin was wrong to say what he did, and that when he considers what he said he will realize that he was wrong," Shalom said.
