The former head of Israel’s Mossad spy agency has said that he believes that the occupation state is heading for self-destruction, the religious-Zionist Makor Rishon news outlet reported on Sunday.

Tamir Pardo explained that he came to his conclusion after the signing of the coalition agreement among the current parties in the far-right cabinet, even before the announcement of the judicial reform plan by Minister of Justice Yariv Levin.

Israel, said Pardo, has been trapped in a destructive operation – the judicial overhaul plan – for the past five months without any logical reason. He noted that the present cabinet is moving towards self-destruction with the whole Zionist state.

If Iran did this when he was in office, he pointed out, he would not have needed any more intelligence resources; he would have believed that Israel’s sworn enemy was itself about to self-destruct.
