Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims he has never said Iran would attack Israel, despite the leader previously saying the Jewish state should be “eliminated.”
Chicago mayor and former Obama campaign advisor Rahm Emanuel met with Ehud Barak, Israeli Defense Minister on Thursday. During the meeting, Barak relayed a message to Emanuel, intended for the president himself – that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not attempt to intercede in the upcoming elections on behalf of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
