MI Chief: Israel’s success battling terror has turned world against us – Haaretz – Israel News

Military Intelligence Chief Amos Yadlin said Tuesday that Israel’s success against Palestinian terror has turned the international community against both the state and its activities.

“The Palestinian Authority is encouraging the international arena to challenge Israel’s legitimacy and its activities,” Yadlin told members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

“The paradox of the current situation is that one of the primary sources that has led to the discussion on Israel’s legitimacy is precisely its success against terror,” Yadlin said.

The fact that Israel is no longer suffering from terror or from an immediate military threat has made it easier for the international community to accept claims against Israel’s security activities,” he added.
