Netanyahu: Unfit to Serve

He's a war criminal.

by Stephen Lendman

It shouldn't surprise. He's a world class thug. He deplores democratic principles. He spurns peace. He menaces the region. He prioritizes racist persecution. He stresses neoliberal harshness.

He's an embarrassment to legitimate governance. Polls suggest he'll remain prime minister after January 22 elections. Israelis have themselves to blame. 

They'll reelect officials harming their own welfare. They're as mindless as Americans. They expect making the same mistake will beget different results. They're not wise enough to know better. They'll get the government they deserve.

Yuval Diskin headed Shin Bet from 2005 - 2011. It's Israel's General Security Service. It calls itself "The unseen shield." It operates jointly with Mossad and Aman (military intelligence).

On January 4, Diskin criticized Netanyahu . He called him "weak," "wavering," and "unreliable."

He's "possessed" by Iran, he said. His judgment is sorely lacking. Excessive alcohol consumption and cigar smoking make things worse. "Netanyahu is scared and fickle." He "shirk(s) responsibility."

He represents "a crisis in leadership here, a crisis of values and total contempt for the public. Maybe people will think I'm exaggerating, but I'm telling you. From close up it looks even worse."

He discussed how Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak behaved in closed meetings. He discussed one on Iran, saying:

"My colleagues and I did not feel secure in Netanhayu and Barak's ability to take action on Iran."

"We didn't trust these people's motives. We were afraid they would make underhanded moves and complicate matters for us as a country. When we sat in very small meetings we had a feeling they were trying to sneak something under the radar."

"The defense minister gets up and walks over to a corner and pours himself a little drink from time to time." 

"In the middle of such a sensitive, confidential meeting, he is standing with a drink in one hand and a cigar in the other, in front of the IDF's officers and intelligence officials."
