Former Mossad Director Efraim Halevy gave his perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Iran’s nuclear program, and Syria and Egypt. In his remarks he criticized Israeli policies and disagreed with Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the United Nations, in which the Israeli prime minister drew a red line across a diagram to indicate a threshold for nuclear development that Iran was approaching beyond which Israel would not tolerate. He also called for a more realistic approach to Israeli policy toward recent uprisings and upheaval in the Middle East and North Africa.

Mossad, or the Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations, is one of the main entities in the Israeli intelligence community, usually associated with covert operations community. close
