Ami Ayalon tells ‘Post’ he’s not upset Kerry quoted him on Iran deal

Former Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) chief Ami Ayalon told The Jerusalem Post on Friday he did not have a problem with US Secretary of State John Kerry using him to defend the Iranian nuclear deal to congressmen in Washington.

Kerry, on Thursday, cited the backing of Ayalon and former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy to indicate that there are respected security figures in Israel who support the deal.

J Street has begun a campaign in support of the agreement that will highlight quotes from Ayalon and Halevy and ignore the fact that polls show close to 80 percent of Jewish Israelis oppose the deal.
