Hadassah's Pillar of Defense Solidarity Mission shares a light moment after a sobering update by Head of Homeland Security and former head of the General Security Services (Shabak) Avi Dichter in his offices in Tel Aviv.
Dichter explained that predicting the upcoming events of the Middle East is impossible despite excellence intelligence.He said that eyes should be focused on Syria, following the impact the fall of that regime may have on neighbor Jordan, as dreams of a greater caliphate come closer for the growing Moslem world. He praised Hadassah for courage and foresight of planning a Solidarity Mission while rockets were falling on the South and Center of Israel.
