Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made Iran’s nuclear program his signature election campaign issue, but his strongest domestic opponents on the issue, the leaders of his own intelligence services, accuse him of “crying wolf” over Iran’s nuclear capability.

In a speech at the United Nations earlier this year Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for a ‘red line’ to be drawn under Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.
