National Union MK Arye Eldad said that Iran is using the Arab Spring to distract Western attention from its nuclear program, and that "The people who believe in the Arab Spring are fools who are addicted to the wishful thinking that these changes will lead the democratization of the Middle East."
Speaking with Benjamin Gottlieb of the University of Southern
California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, Eldad
said that the "only thing that may stop Iran is a military attack and we
have to hope that we have a different US president with a different
policy before Iran has the bomb."

Eldad, who is considered one of the most effective right-wing MKs
in the government, said that he believed the Egyptian government, which
he said will be seized by the Muslim Brotherhood, would eventually
prefer to break the peace treaty with Israel.

circumstances, [the Egyptian government] will prefer to break it," Eldad
