Former cabinet member and Mossad agent Rafi Eitan has expressed support for the far-right Alternative for Germany party, saying he hopes its ideology expands to the rest of Europe.
In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day last month, Eitan praised the controversial German party (known as AfD) for coming out against anti-Semitism and supporting Jewish life in Germany. In his video message to the party, published on his Facebook page Saturday, Eitan said: “If you work wisely, powerfully and, most importantly, realistically confronting a situation and deciding to act according to given circumstances, I’m sure that instead of an alternative to Germany, you’ll become an alternative to Europe.”
Eitan’s Facebook page contained a German translation of some of his remarks. Among these he says that “the Muslim world and its culture are very different from those of the West. Anywhere there are Muslims today, in any European country, one can expect violence and terror because of these differences.”
Eitan was one of the founders of Israel’s intelligence community and has been called its “master spy” and a “living legend.” He was the Mossad agent who headed the mission to abduct Adolf Eichmann and bring him to Israel in 1960 for prosecution. Eitan was later a cabinet minister.
