"Please explain to us, who is the greater enemy – the United States or Iran? Whose regime are you aiming to replace? The one in Washington or Tehran?"
Addressing a possible strike in Iran, Mofaz said, "Never in all of the State of Israel's years of existence, had the drums of war beat so hard as today."
The Kadima chairman also criticized the recent cabinet leaks. Addressing Netanyahu directly, he said: "Are you willing to undergo a formal Shin Bet test and answer just two questions: did you intentionally leak sensitive and classified materials in order to increase public support for military action? And did you relay information to unauthorized persons?"
Mofaz further charged that "wars are waged only when there is no other choice."
The opposition chairman stated that the Netanyahu government had "turned the Iranian threat from a global threat to a local threat, from a threat on mankind to a threat on the Jewish people in Israel.
"Mr. prime minister, our policy has played into the hands of the ayatollah and reinforced the foundation of their regime."
