JD: David President Reuven Rivlin made a statement this week that Israel is in a crisis and he said we need a government right now. I don’t know if they’re going to be able to form a coalition government with either of the leaders of the two leading parties the Blue & White and the Likud. Boy this is quite a warning from Reuven Rivlin isn’t it?
DD: Well yes Jimmy and he’s not just speaking of course out of thin air. He is quoting top military commanders and others who are warning that a possible Iranian surprise attack upon Israel during the holiday period may well be on the horizon. We have to remember it was on Yom Kippur of 1973 when a US President was being impeached, Richard Nixon at the time that the Soviet Union backed an attack by Egypt and Syria a surprise attack upon Israel.
