Bibiton clearly has a favored candidate to replace Meir Dagan as new Mossad chief. He’s Yuval Diskin, who’s been working ‘wonders’ over at Shabak as chief knuckle-buster of Israeli Palestinian security suspects. The far-right Israeli publication must so admire Diskin’s work securing Israel’s internal political consensus, that it hopes he’ll do the same for Israel in the international arena.
Just as Diskin announced all-out war against the Israeli Palestinian nationalist community in 2007 and confirmed this by arresting a score of leading activists for little more than advocating political equality between Israel’s Jewish and Palestinian citizens, so the Israeli right hopes he will wage all out war on Israel’s “enemies” abroad. That might mean more psyops and disinformation campaigns against such targets at BDS supporters, Gaza flotilla activists, human rights advocates such as those behind the Goldstone Report, and more fireworks targeting Iran.
Of course, it will mean future assassinations of Palestinian militants in various world capitals including possibly one coming soon to a country near you.
It’s very possible that this story is just a “flyer” for Bibiton’s favored candidate and in the coming days we’ll see a different name emerge as winner. But Bibiton has a unique vantage point on internal political deliberations within the Israeli right, so it’s worth taking this one seriously.
