Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the country’s president of siding with Arab leaders. Netanyahu said he was sure that Arab capitals were “brimming with satisfaction” because of remarks made by Ezer Weizman, who had called on Netanyahu to schedule early elections and accused him of being “cut off from reality” because of his handling of the peace process. Meanwhile, 50 percent of Israelis in a poll published in the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot said they wanted early elections, while 39 percent did not. The poll has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.
