Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon has been marked as a problem by certain elements in Washington because of his positions on the Palestinian issue, said sources near him, hence the sharp counterattack following the minister's comments on "American weakness" around the world. These people "take every opportunity to attack him," the sources near Ya'alon added.
