Officials: Diskin 'Detached from Reality'

Israeli officials close to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday evening slammed former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin, who said earlier that there were “too many Jews” living in Judea and Samaria and said that "the solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict is more existential than the solution to the Iranian nuclear program."

"Anyone who thinks that the Palestinian threat is bigger than the threat of a nuclear bomb in the hands of Iran, which calls for the destruction of the State of Israel, is detached from reality and lacks a strategic vision,” said the officials.
