The former head of the Mossad, Tamir Pardo, was interviewed by the American news agency AP and said harsh words against the State of Israel. In an interview published today (Wednesday), Pardo spoke about Israel's conduct in the Judea and Samaria territories and claimed that it runs an apartheid regime.
Pardo, who served as the head of the Mossad from 2011-2016, explained to the foreign media: "A territory where two people are judged according to two separate legal systems is an apartheid state," Pardo added and explained that his views on the conduct in Judea and Samaria: "are not extreme."
During the interview, he refused to answer the question of whether he held these views even when he was in office but noted that he had warned Prime Minister Netanyahu several times about the matter, and argued to him that this conduct was more dangerous than the Iranian nuclear threat, which Netanyahu believes is the greatest existential threat.
Pardo's previous statement: "KKK processes"
It should be noted that this is not Pardo's only unusual statement and about two months ago he caused another storm when he claimed that the country under Netanyahu is going through processes similar to the KKK (the Nazi organization Ku Klux Klan).
According to him, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu "is a member of horrible racist parties and his positions are not far from them." He added that if some of the laws were enacted in the rest of the world, we would say that these are anti-Semitic discriminatory laws.
