Former Israeli premier against Iran strike
Jerusalem: Former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert has added his voice to a growing chorus of Israeli officials against a military strike on Iran`s nuclear facilities.
Olmert spoke to Israel`s Channel 10 TV from New York on Sunday.
"There is no reason at this time not to talk about a military effort," he said, "but definitely not to initiate an Israeli military strike." Olmert was Israel`s prime minister from 2006-2009.
His remarks come after Israel`s former internal security chief, Yuval Diskin, said the government is misleading the public on the level of effectiveness of a military strike.
Meir Dagan, Israel`s ex-Mossad chief, told the station he supported Diskin.
Israel and the West suspect Iran is aiming to obtain nuclear weapons. Iran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful purposes.
