Israel ex-security chief says leadership 'misleading public' on Iran


www.bbc.co.uk

The former head of Israel's domestic intelligence agency has accused the country's leadership of "misleading" the public on the merits of a possible military strike on Iran.

Yuval Diskin said an attack might speed up any attempt by Iran to obtain a nuclear bomb.

Mr Diskin's harsh criticism appears to be another sign of deep disquiet within the Israeli military and intelligence community over Prime Minister Netanyahu's threats to attack Iran.

"Mr Diskin, who stepped down as Shin Bet chief last year after six years, said he had "no faith in the current leadership" of Mr Netanyahu and Mr Barak, according to Israeli media reports.

"I don't believe in a leadership that makes decisions based on messianic feelings," he said at a public meeting.

"They are misleading the public on the Iran issue. They tell the public that if Israel acts, Iran won't have a nuclear bomb. This is misleading. Actually, many experts say that an Israeli attack would accelerate the Iranian nuclear race."


There has been some surprising comments coming from other parts of the Israeli leadership, what exactly is going on here? I thought Israel was pretty united on Iran but its starting to not appear that way.

So first the head of the Israeli Mossad (Intel Agency) comes out and opposes an Israeli attack in Iran and now the head of Israels most elite Special Forces unit comes out and does the same?

These are the people who know what's really going on. Intelligence agencies get information through infiltration, bribes, threats, hacks etc. and SF gets some of that info to the Mossad through their own operations.

In my book, these 2 people are heroes for speaking out the truth, knowing how much they have to lose...

I hope more brave Israeli men and women appear to stop this madness from evolving into a global problem before its too late and take back their country!

Frankly Benjamin Netanyahu should be removed from his post. He is a threat to global peace. I remember when the Gulf War happened and the US had to slap him down as he was all set to attack Iraq in retaliation for the one or two scud missles that landed in Israel. I am not happy with this guy having his finger on the nuclear button. He is too much of a hot head and is a dangerous man. I dont trust him one iota.

Learn the facts before you write.

Yitzhak Shamir was the Israeli PM at the time, not Benjamin Netanyahoo,
and no one had to slap him down.
It wasn't “1 or 2 Scud missiles that landed in Israel “, but 39.

He didn't imply Benjamin Netanyahu was the PM back then.
In fact he was Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister



Please notice, it is the same speech in 1991 that he uses today.Just replace PLO/Yasser Arafat by Hamas, and replace Saddam Hussein/Iraq with Ahmadinejad/Iran and it is almost the exact same speech


And thanks for the info.
I also didn't know 39 scuds landed on Israel.

With the poor technology I'm assuming Saddam had, i must say he had good aim..

The Mossad is the foreign defense agency. The guy who is speaking out was head of the domestic agency. They are separate, and apparently can have differing views on matters. Actually, maybe they agree... The ex-chief can only speak for himself personally because he left the domestic agency years ago. He's just expressing his opinion and saying other experts share the same opinion.

I read article carefully.


The Prime Minister is doing what it seems every world leader involved in war does...lying. This is how they are, so much, that this shouldn't even be in the "news" because it's as old as time itself. It would be news if he said he's backing down or stepping down due to a change of heart.

Really... anything just to give people something to read or talk about. That's all news is for anyway. We personally have jack influence over these important matters.

Corporatism at its finest. France Sells Iraq Nukes Check. Sanctions when Iraq uses US Sold Biological Weapons on Iran Check. Tell Iraq OK to invade Kuwait Check. Start Persian Gulf War (destroy (soften) Iraq Army). Invade Iraq based on Nukes from France (Niger LOL) CHECK MATE.


PROFIT!!!!!

In the last few weeks there has also been the deputy PM admitting that Ahmedinejad DID NOT say they wanted to wipe Israel off the map, the head of the armed forces saying Iran IS NOT making nuclear weapons and quite possibly never will, and now this.

Yet, the politicians in the West and Nutty-Yahoo are still beating the war drums and the media are still openly spouting unsubstantiated "facts" and helping condition the populace for more war.


If Iran agrees to the snap inspections that have been put forward, then that will finally take the wind out of the sails of those wanting a new war... for now that is, until they come up with another excuse!

Israel is a strong ally of the U.S.

If there is a war between Iran and Israel the U.S. would inevitably be involved on the Israeli side. That could lead to a broader conflict involving more of the middle east.

I don't think anyone here wants to see that happen. I personally am worried.
