Ben Caspit speaks this week with former Mossad Chief Efraim Halevy. The top ex-spy says the ICC ruling on investigating Israel has no real legal basis. "It is possible that the upcoming prosecutor will review the decision and possibly even cancel it," he notes. Still, Halevy says Israel has over-reacted. "We would be better served if we did not play this story up and did not cry foul and immediately introduce the element of this being an antisemitic act. Its not antisemitism, its struggle between two national movement struggling over a piece of land."
