The leader of the "Israeli" opposition party Kadima has blasted "Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his war rhetoric against Iran, saying the hawkish premier has "lost his wits".

"He seems to have lost his wits, and rather than making thought-out, responsible decisions, he is creating the sense of an impending war," Shaul Mofaz said Sunday, following his last week's meeting with Netanyahu where they discussed Iran.
Netanyahu seemed "confused, stressed out and unfocused" over the issue of Iran, Mofaz added.

"The prime minister has lost the faith of the security chiefs, United States President [Barack] Obama, and [Israeli] President Shimon Peres," said Mofaz. "This is a bankrupt leadership."
He added that there is a direct relation between Tel Aviv's bellicose rhetoric against Iran and the economic woes in "Israel".
"You cannot put the country into the frenzy of war," he said. "There is a direct correlation between the talk of war, the economic situation, and people's despair."
Mofaz also supported the remarks made earlier Sunday morning by former "Israeli" Supreme Court justice Eliyahu Winograd, who described the talk by Netanyahu and Military Affairs Minister Ehud Barak about an aggression on Iran as "extremely irresponsible."
According to Mofaz, Winograd "joins a long list of people" who have expressed strong opposition to a possible Israeli strike against the Islamic Republic.

"Winograd's primary arguments against an early strike have also been voiced by every head of the defense establishment, the president of the United States, and an ongoing stream of highly placed administration visitors" to Israel, Mofaz said.

Thousands of "Israeli" demonstrators, furious and concerned about a potential "Israeli" attack on Iran have been protesting against the warmongering policies of the "Israeli" regime in the recent months.
Tel Aviv constantly threatens Iran with a military strike, claiming that Tehran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Iranian officials have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the Islamic Republic, warning such an attack could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.

Iran reasons that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.
