In a new interview released today in Foreign Policy magazine, Efraim Halevy the former head of Israel’s foreign intelligence organization Mossad, the “Spymaster” has a few choice words directed at Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
“Regarding the election, I think many of the statements made by the Republican candidate are very undesirable as far as Israel is concerned. I remember an article of Governor Romney’s in the Washington Post in March where he advocated dispatching American warships to the Eastern Mediterranean. Shooting from the hip on these matters is a very dangerous sport to be engaged in. And I think that drawing Israel into this campaign is detrimental to Israeli interests, and I regret that one of the candidates is doing this.”
Romney, the Republican Party and the right wing media continuously attack President Obama, saying that he does not fully support Israel. This is despite the fact that Israel’s Prime Minister, Israel’s Defense Minister and Israel’s President, all say that military and intelligence sharing has never been better under any other U.S. President.
