Yuval Diskin, the former director of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), warned on Friday that "religious Zionism is on its way to taking control of the State of Israel."

In a lengthy post on his Facebook page, the onetime Shin Bet chief wrote: "The 'two-state solution' is emerging before our eyes amongst us Jews - there is the State of Judea, which is de facto being established alongside the State of Israel."

"These are two states in which the differences between them is only growing, and this chasm is becoming irreversible," Diskin wrote.

The former Shin Bet head posted the notice in response to the deadly arson attack in the Palestinian village of Duma last week that is alleged to have been committed by Jewish extremists in the West Bank.
