Ex Mossad chief Meir Dagan will appear on 60 Minutes Sunday
 

Posted on: March 9th, 2012

News & ViewsIsrael

Ex Mossad chief Meir Dagan often adds flare to his public statements.

We went out to watch the Purim Parade in our sweet town of Netanya, and for a few hours were transported to a care-free world, somewhere between Disneyland and New Orleans.
