Coalition chairman David Bitan (Likud) claimed Saturday that the directors of the Mossad and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) organizations tend to undergo a dramatic shift to the political Left during the duration of their service.
"Something happens over the years in this position. I believe this is an evolution that happens in the framework of the position," the coalition chairman said at a cultural event in Beersheba.
"There is a problem with the Mossad and Shin Bet’s head positions. Something there makes them leftists. Meir Dagan was an extreme right-winger, but after he entered the Mossad and left the organization, he was the opposite,"
