TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) -- Former Mossad Director Meir Dagan came out against Israel's prime minister on Tuesday, in a speech saying he was against blocking a Palestinian move to bring the issue of statehood to the UN.

The speech, reported by the daily Ma'ariv, was delivered during a closed forum at Tel Aviv's Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center.

Dagan was quoted as saying Israel would be in error if it attempted to stop the Palestinian leadership's "September move," when UN delegates will ask the international body to recognize a state on the 1967 borders.

"Recognition of a state is inevitable," the former director was reported to have said, recommending that Israel impose its own conditions on statehood rather than allowing the UN to sanction the Palestinian vision.

Dagan said Israeli acceptance of the move could actually minimize "any damage."

Too little, too late. The settlements are illegal, and should all be either dismantled, or emptied of the aliens, and replaced with returning Palestinian refugees.

..."recommending that Israel impose its own conditions on statehood rather than allowing the UN to sanction the Palestinian vision". In other words what that Zionist criminal and ex Mossad chief wants is the same as the others, namely some scattered Palestinian cantons and bantustans that they can call "a state". Zionism never fails to be criminal.

What our ex-Mossad director SHOULD HAVE SAID is that IF the U.N. votes to recognize a (second) Palestinian nation, THEN SO BE IT. WE ARE NOT. If the U.N., EU, Quartet or ANYONE ELSE wants to impose sanctions or the U.N. votes to EXPEL US, THEN SO BE IT. When the Palestinian Declaration of Independence is READ, somebody WAKE ME UP. I'll invite President (or, by then, if he's Prime Minister) Abbas over. We'll celebrate by having Palestinian Independence Day cake and ice cream on the beach.
