General Security Service chief Yoram Cohen, the first religious Jew to lead the agency

March 30, 2011

On Tuesday, YNet reported that ‘Rightists’ slammed new General Security Service chief Yoram Cohen, the first religious Jew to lead the agency, on the grounds that he would bend over backward to show he was not biased toward the religious Jewish (and by implication revenant) community.

“The feeling is that he will be worse than all his predecessors because of the media attack against him, because supposedly he is an emissary of the right,” one source said. “He will try anything to prove that he isn’t one.”
