What Makes ex Mossad Chiefs and IDF Generals Run?
Former Mossad chief, British-born Efraim Halevy, has released an interview to Israeli media asking Israel to commit suicide and withdraw to the pre-1967 “Auschwitz borders”. He also attacked Naftali Bennett’s plan for an arrangement with the Arabs.
Secret service and army officials have just one mission: to protect Israel at any cost. But it is amazing to observe the growing phenomenon of former Mossad and Shin Bet chiefs and army generals who suddenly take on the most stupid and dangerous positions in Israel’s history. They are a mix of inflated ego and estrangement from Israel’s brutal reality.
In the last two years, former Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin called again and again to destroy Jewish life in Judea and Samaria and the security apparatus which makes Israeli life in the coastal region fairly pleasant and safe. Diskin believes that Yitzhar in Samaria is a far more dangerous threat than ISIS or Iran.
Carmi Gillon, who failed to stop terror in the ’90s, uses the alleged “price tag” to target the entire hilltop youth in Judea and Samaria, young heroes who populate empty and remote hills. Never mind that police have never proven that these youths are the perpetrators and that Arabs who vandalized light rail stations in Jerusalem sprayed the words “price tag” in Hebrew on the booths they destroyed.
Ehud Barak agreed to hand over the Temple Mount and Judea and Samaria to Arabs in 2000 for a hudna.
And would you like to talk about Amram Mitzna?
The Judea and Samaria region is guarded by commanders such as Nitzan Alon, who compare right wing Jews to Hamas terrorists. For people like him, graffiti and making hamburger out of Jewish babies are the same.
If it would have been up to these security officials, Israel would have had missiles on the edge of Lake Kinneret, Jerusalem would be a war zone and seven million “refugee” Arabs would be inside of the Green line.
They are all affected by the virus of the same malady: they did not do enough to protect Israelis during the ’90s and the Second Intifada, they’ve all drunk the poison of Oslo and above all, they can’t face the truth of Arab hatred and anti-Semitism, so they all collect their pensions and relase interviews to the media that hate Jews.
