Former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Avi Dichter commented on Tuesday morning on the propriety of current Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin's remarks made at the yeshiva in Eli over a month ago. He was convinced that Diskin spoke professionally when he said that he was personally opposed to unilateral land concessions to the Palestinians. "It was not at all a political statement, it was a professional statement," he told Israel Radio. "It is totally clear that when Yuval Diskin is invited to the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, he is essentially being invited to the program 'Meet the Press,' since all of his comments will be publicized after that, but with alterations as each Knesset member relates them. Therefore, I am convinced that when he spoke in Eli, just like when Ami Ayalon spoke in the past in yeshivas... I'm sure Yuval took into consideration that what he said would be published. I'm sure he was fully aware," Dichter emphasized.
