Ex-Mossad chief Halevy emerges as one of Israel’s few backers of Iran deal

Former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy, one of the few prominent Israeli figures willing to speak positively about the nuclear deal struck between the world powers and Iran, told Channel 2 that he did not mind being cited by US Secretary of State John Kerry as part of the Obama administration’s public relations campaign in favor of the agreement.

"This is not an agreement that is entirely bad," Halevy told Channel 2 on Friday. "There are positive elements in it."

The onetime spymaster implicitly criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s public and vocal opposition to the deal, which in his view has led to a situation whereby "nobody can have a discrete conversation with the Americans."
