Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz said Sunday he took former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) director Yuval Diskin's criticism of Prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak very seriously, according to Army Radio.

Diskin lashed out at Netanyahu and Barak on Friday for poor leadership, among other things lying about the projected effectiveness of an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities and blaming them for the freeze in the peace process with the Palestinians.

Mofaz told Army Radio that Diskin had spoken out against Netanyahu and Barak out of "deep concern" for the direction that the two were leading the country.
