Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant should have resigned over the passing of the judicial reform's Law to Cancel the Reasonableness Standard on Monday, former Mossad chief Danny Yatom said on Tuesday morning to 103FM.
"Gallant should have done the bravest thing he could have - announce that he would stop playing this game," Yatom said. "He should have resigned, for better or for worse."
In an interview with 103FM, former police commissioner Moshe Karadi was also highly critical of the judicial reforms and those who champion them - in particular, National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir.
Police action during judicial reform protests
He began by addressing the issue of police violence during protests, saying: "The [police] commanders need to understand that these officers, even if they are few, are causing damage to the thousands of police officers dedicated to their work. They should be removed from the [police force] as soon as possible."
Karadi also expressed pessimism for the future. "I am very worried that we are heading for bloodshed," he said.
Finally, the former police chief referred to Ben-Gvir as a criminal with evil intentions:
"There are officers and commanders in the police who work on the war on terrorism, and those who fight the war on crime. [Israel Police Chief Kobi Shabtai] fought terrorism. A criminal came into his office and Kobi does not know how to fight a criminal.
"[Ben-Gvir] is a criminal in his very essence; he does things that don't even have a drop of humanity. He isn't a human being, he came into the world in order to do evil."
