U.S. Intelligence Points to Netanyahu's Loss of ‘Viability’

March 12, 2024 (EIRNS)—The latest report by the U.S. Director of National Intelligence, released Feb. 5 but only published on March 11, revealed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is losing his “viability” as a leader. “Distrust of Netanyahu’s ability to rule has deepened and broadened across the public from its already high levels before the war, and we expect large protests demanding his resignation and new elections. A different, more moderate government is a possibility,” it revealed.

“The Hamas attack against Israel in October 2023 and Israel’s responding military campaign in Gaza has increased tensions throughout the region as Iranian proxies and partners conduct anti-U.S. and anti-Israel attacks, both in support of Hamas and to pressure the United States,” Yediot Ahronot, Israel’s largest circulating daily, quoted the report as saying.

“Media coverage of the destruction and loss of life are being amplified by active social media campaigns on all sides, roiling public reactions among neighboring countries and around the world. Israel will face mounting international pressure because of the dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, and Iranian-backed attacks will jeopardize stability in Lebanon, Iraq, the Gulf, and the Red Sea. The risk of escalation into direct interstate conflict, intended or otherwise, remains high.”
