Gafni: Investigate ex-Mossad chief for incitement

November 6, 2011 13:16

Chairman of the Knesset Finance Committee Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) asked Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Sunday to investigate Efraim Halevy on suspicion of incitement for comments he made Thursday night.

Halevy, a former Mossad chief, condemned religious extremism in the IDF, warning that "Israel's true existential danger comes from within." The former Mossad chief also said that religious extremism is a growing peril to Israel's existence and is more threatening than Iran's nuclear program.

In a letter to Weinstein, Gafni wrote that Halevy's words crossed a red line and may bring harm to a "defined" sector of the public.
