Mofaz: Netanyahu and Barak are 'a danger to Israel'

September 5, 2011 12:55

Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Shaul Mofaz on Monday slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak for preventing testimony on the intelligence information Israel had prior to the terror attacks near Eilat last month, saying "this pair is a danger to Israel."

On Sunday, OC Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Aviv Kochavi and a Shin Bet representative arrived at a meeting of the Subcommittee for Intelligence, Secret Services, Captives and Missing Soldiers with letters from the defense minister and the prime minister, respectively, saying that they may not answer the subcommittee’s inquiries as to what intelligence their agencies had before last month's attacks.

Mofaz stated that Netanyahu and Barak were "trampling roughshod over democracy" and have forgotten that they are obligated to report to the Knesset. "They must be reminded of the borders," Mofaz stated in an interview with Israel Radio.
