Recent comments on the part of Israeli politicians regarding the Iranian nuclear threat was "related to the elections," and amounted to a "very bad" pulling away from the government's policy of conducting its Iran policy in media silence, former defense minister and Labor MK Binyamin (Fouad) Ben-Eliezer said in an interview on Israel Radio Monday morning. "This is not something that should be brought up as an argument in the primaries," he said. "Both the defense minister [Shaul Mofaz] and [Likud MK] Bibi Netanyahu know one thing: that the government has a policy that we don't talk about it, and don't place ourselves on the front line of this issue."
