Former Mossad Chief Asked To Return Diplomatic Passport
Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan has been asked to forgo his diplomatic passport, and Channel 2 reported on Sunday that the move comes as a response to Dagan's recent comments in which he publicly criticized the government's stance on Iran.

Dagan has asked to use his diplomatic passport for several trips he was planning in the coming weeks, however government officials denied his request and Dagan was asked to return the passport.

The prime minister's office issued a statement in response to the Channel 2 report, claiming that the Foreign Ministry allowed Dagan to keep his diplomatic passport for the trips he had requested and only return it when he was done.

"A diplomatic passport is given to officials in order to aid them in their jobs. According to the rulers, when those people are no longer assuming those positions, they are asked to return the diplomatic passport," the statement said.

2. Dissent must be stamped out at all costs.
The illusion of unity must be maintained.

3. That is a typo in the article

The statement said "according to the rules" not "according to the rulers" - odd that no one picked that up in the editing, but not surprising these days.
