Israeli Minister of Pensioner Affairs and former Mossad agent Rafi Eitan suggested in an interview with a German magazine published on Tuesday that Israel may have plans in place to abduct Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other international figures that pose a threat to the Jewish state.
Speaking to German news magazine Der Spiegel, Eitan said that while the era of hunting down former Nazis was over, "that's not to say that such operations are completely a thing of the past."
Eitan said that "it could very well be that a leader such as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad suddenly finds himself before the International Criminal Court in The Hague."
The aging former spymaster said that anyone who advocates the eradication of another nation has to "expect such consequences."
Eitan led the 1960 Mossad operation to capture former Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
