According to local press, the Israeli leadership has been "climbing down from the tree" this week with a distinct change in tone from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding attacking Iran. The change in mood is said to be linked to rising tensions with the Obama administration and new rumours that Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak has changed his mind and is no longer supporting a unilateral attack by Israel. Meanwhile members of Netanyahu's party, namely fmr minister Tsachi Hanegbi and right-wing parliamentarians such as Tzipi Hotovely have been coming out in support of the Prime Minister. The Real News' Lia Tarachansky summarizes last week's press in Israel in relation to Iran.
