Likud Chairman and opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu, speaking at the opening ceremony of the Knesset's winter session on Monday, likened the state of the country to a "car traveling on a path towards an abyss," while the solution proposed to save the situation, "was to change the model of the car." Mainly referring to the management of the recent war in Lebanon, but also talking about the "large amounts" of weapons and ammunition, including missiles, streaming into the Gaza Strip, Netanyahu called for "a change of direction." Netanyahu touched on the Iranian threat, stating that within Iran there were social and economic problems. He said Israel must consider taking "preventative" measures against an Iranian nuclear threat.
