Netanyahu's main rival in Israeli election voices agreement with him on Iran

Former general Benny Gantz, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s strongest challenger in an election scheduled for April, voiced support on Sunday for the right-wing leader’s tough policy toward Iran. “I am standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Prime Minister Netanyahu in the fight against Iran’s aggression,” Gantz, a former chief of Israel’s armed forces and a centrist candidate, told the Munich Security Conference. Polls predict that Netanyahu’s Likud party will win the April 9 election, taking about 30 of parliament’s 120 seats – enough to form a coalition of right-wing and religious factions similar to one he now heads.
