The timing of early elections, expected to take place on September 4, has nothing to do with Iran, sources close to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Saturday.
The Prime Minister’s Office’s said it does not comment on speculation, however, a source close to Netanyahu told The Jerusalem Post that Iran was not mentioned once during talks about whether and when to dissolve the Knesset and hold an early vote.
The denial came in response to a theory floated by Channel 2 and Yediot Aharonot analysts that the prime minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak plan to launch an attack and cut off the Islamic Republic’s nuclear capabilities in the coming months.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
