Mevaseret Zion Mayor Carmi Gillon, head of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) at the time of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin's assassination, joined the Kadima Party on Wednesday. A former ambassador to Denmark, Gillon said he had never joined a political party before. He said he chose Kadima because he preferred its socioeconomic platform and its approach to education. A Likud official responded that Gillon's joining Kadima would not help the party any more than Gillon helped prevent Rabin's assassination.
