#2 "14-member security cabinet", I think someone is going to be a little nervous. That person has got to go.

#3 No doubt Netanyahu is furious. But if you look at what actually was "leaked" - it didn't do any great harm. The leaks don't appear to have strengthened the position of Washington or Tehran. But they have probably set the world's mind at ease - at least a little bit. Speaking as one individual, I feel better for knowing that the situation (as view by the Israeli Cabinet) is "disturbing but not daunting". At least they are looking things in a balanced and rational way.

#4 There are multiple assessments. I'm not necessarily comforted by that fact, unless I have a basis for trusting one over the other.

#5 Look beyond the veil.
All the excitement could really be from the content of the leak, which may identify the leaker. Or, satisfaction that items discussed were also leaked through other channels. Or even, they are ready to go now and this is intended to mask the timetable.

#6 Maybe at the next meeting some guy's chair will fall through a hole in the floor and he'll be dropped into the shark cage.

#7 Hahahaha! NOTE to all members of Israeli Cabinet ... check floorboards carefully before sitting down.

#8 The traitor is probably already known. (Nod to The Day of the Jackal)
Minister: There is one thing: how did you know whose telephone to tap?
Lebel: I didn't, so I tapped all of them.

#9 It's also a bad sign if Netanyahu is sitting on a chair with a white cat on his lap. It's imperative to leave the Cabinet meeting IMMEDIATELY - if Bibi has a white kitty :-)
This infomercial is provided as a public service to high-ranking Israeli politicians :-)
