Israeli press reports today that PM Benjamin Netanyahu dissolved an Israel’s security cabinet meeting on Wednesday, saying someone in the forum “betrayed the national trust by leaking details of its top-secret discussions on Iran.”
Citing an unnamed source who had taken part in the security cabinet’s first session on Tuesday, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported yesterday that Israel’s leading intelligence agencies gave the 14-member group conflicting views on Iran’s. The paper reported on Tuesday that one of the cabinet’s minister suggested that the information concerning Iran was “disturbing but not alarming”.
It is pretty easy to grasp why PM Netanyahu reacted angrily. The pretext for a new world war is pretty much gone – the Hasbara lie is exposed once again.
PM Netanyahu was quick to say today that “the security of the state and of its citizens depends on the ability to have confidential and in-depth discussions in the security cabinet.” Netanyahu was practicaly suggesting that ‘the security of the Jewish State’ depends on the ability of Israeli official to spread propaganda lies and commit more and more crimes in the name of the Jewish people.
I guess that for the time being, there is no Israeli plan to attack Iran. Israel doesn’t posses the military capacity to execute such a strike. And as we learn from Israeli press, even Israel ministers realise that Iran is not exactly a threat anyway.

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.
Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year, he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.”
His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at Amazon.com
