Israel's Mofaz says PM 'meddling' in US vote [View all]

Source: Agence France Presse

AFP - Israel's opposition leader on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of "meddling" in the US presidential election and harming Israel's ties with Washington in a dispute over Iran's nuclear programme.

The remarks by opposition leader Shaul Mofaz came as Netanyahu and the White House locked horns over how to handle Iran's nuclear programme, with Israel threatening unilateral military action against Tehran, despite American objections.

Mofaz said Netanyahu's pursuit of a very public dispute with President Barack Obama over Iran was an attempt to sway voters against the US leader, who faces a challenge from Republican rival Mitt Romney in the November ballot.

"Israeli meddling in internal US affairs and turning the US administration from an ally to 'an enemy' has caused us severe damage," Mofaz charged, at a session of the Israeli parliament, known as the Knesset.
