Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan said Tuesday that the government system is falling apart and no longer serves the values and morals it was meant to serve.
Speaking at a conference in which his Yesh Sikui movement was presenting their outline for changing the government system, Dagan offered the failure of the government to pass a law implementing equality in the service burden as an example of its failure. He said that it was absurd that even though the majority of Israelis want a universal service law the government was unable to pass such legislation.
Dagan decried the current political system's empowering of sectorial interests at the expense of the majority: "I know it sounds bombastic but over time if we continue to focus on sectorial needs our chance of survival is very small."
