Yossi Cohen

From The Times of Israel, new details on the political ambitions of Mossad chief Yossi Cohen. According to Aaron Milchan, a billionaire backer of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, asked Cohen about his loyalties.

Milchan told the investigator that when Cohen was a candidate to head the National Security Council in 2013, a position he eventually received, “I was asked if he would be loyal to the couple.” Asked to specify which couple, Milchan laughed and answered, “dad and mom,” an evident reference to Benjamin and Sara Netanyahu. “I said I thought he’d be very loyal.”
