Israelis may regret Saddam ousting

Israel’s Shin Bet security service chief has said his country may come to regret the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, because strong dictatorship is preferable to the present chaos in Iraq. Yuval Diskin, who was secretly recorded talking to teenage Jewish settlers preparing for military service, also said Israel’s judicial system discriminates against Arabs.

He added that “Jewish terrorists” who used violence to oppose withdrawals from the occupied territories were worse than Arab attackers.
