Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday abruptly announced he was quitting politics, injecting new turmoil into the Israeli political system weeks ahead of general elections.
Barak, Israel's most-decorated soldier and one-time prime minister, said he would stay on in his current post until a new government is formed following the Jan. 22 balloting.

As much as Israel's govt wants to attack Iran, and vice versa, I think they both know it's a foolish move. Israel wants to keep existing, as does Iran, so while they will incessantly threaten each other, it is unlikely that anything will come from it.
If Netanyahu assigns a chicken hawk to oversee Israel's defenses he is a retard.
