Iran War Opponents Ousted From Israeli Leadership

Two of the Israeli government’s most reliable critics of an Iran strike were swept out of power during Monday’s Likud party primary, replaced by hard-right members of the Knesset (MKs) on both Iran and Israeli West Bank settlements. According to a Reuters report, the defeated members, Dan Meridor and Benny Begin, were staunch opponents of a strike on Iran, and “their likely ouster could point to a strategic shift closer to confrontation.”

With Netenyahu certain to win comfortably, this is very bad news.

1. Recced for visibility. Thanks for the report from the Twilight Zone.

Add this to the likely appointment of Susan Rice as SoS, the string of regime changes in the region, and a buildup of tensions with Iran in large part due to the sanctions regime she has been shepherding, and we have the making of perfect storm.
