Former Israeli Security Chief & Mayor of Jerusalem “The country is being led by an ego-maniac leading a bunch of messianic pyromaniacs.” Shin Bet Head Carmi Gilon spoke out at Peace Now‘s demonstration outside the PM’s residence on Saturday.
Watch Former Israeli Security Chief:
This is the side of Israeli politics seldom seen by the western world and harsh words coming from a man who was once responsible for Israel’s domestic security.
Thousands of citizens were protesting against the Nation State Bill that Netanyahu seems determined to pass, a Bill many believe will lead to the destruction of Israel. Gilon went on to say ” A cancer being implanted inside our democracy, which will consume it until it no longer exists”.
He went on regarding the Temple mount status quo. “The country is being led by an ego-maniac leading a bunch of messianic pyromaniacs determined to ignite a religious conflagration that will set the entire region alight. These people think they are ushering in an age of messianic redemption, when in fact they are leading us to ruin, to Armageddon.”
One might wonder if Gilon is long for this world after attacking these psychopaths. We appreciate the courage and integrity it took to speak out publicly against the war machine masters.
