Dagan: Political pressure mustn't force PM into Iran strike

Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan on Wednesday kicked off a new movement calling for changes in the political system, saying, "We must demand that when the prime minister is making fateful strategic decisions, such as action against Iran, he will not give into or have his hand forced by political pressure."
Dagan, who cannot run for the next Knesset due to the cooling off period law, spoke about the vision of the new movement called 'Yesh Sicui' (there is a chance) at a conference in Tel Aviv.
"The state of Israel faces great challenges, some of them from within: impossible chasms, sectoral tendencies which have minority and pressure groups controlling the state while the majority is not heard and has no way to realize its desires," Dagan stated.
