The London Daily Telegraph once described the Israel’s Mossad as a “ruthless intelligence service.” Phil Giraldi, a former counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer with the CIA, once wrote that the Mossad:
“Targets the United States intensively, particularly in pursuit of military and dual-use civilian technology. Israel leads all others in its active espionage directed against American companies and the Defense Department.”
CNI is lucky to have Phil on board as our Executive Director. His insider sources and unique experience give our role in the Middle East policy analysis credibility and clout. A recent article by Phil deserves careful reading and circulation. He notes in “Mossad Pulp Fiction,” that the Mossad uses smoke and mirrors to enlarge and empower its image—part of an elaborate scheme of disinformation to mask the Mossad’s operations. His article is a review/essay of a new book entitled “Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars.” Phil observes that the book mixes, “the certainly true with the plausible and then with the certainly false to create a disinformation package designed to woo the reader into thinking that the Israeli intelligence service is invincible.”
That’s an important weapon in the Mossad’s arsenal.
Phil says the ultimate goal of such books is to seduce “uncritical readers in America and elsewhere [who] will believe everything contained in the book and think that the Israeli intelligence service is almost superhuman. Given all of that, ‘Spies Against Armageddon’ is undoubtedly a Mossad best seller even if no one buys it.” He also warns readers that:
“The disinformation contained in ‘Spies Against Armageddon’ will undermine the Iranian regime by creating fear that Israel can run intelligence operations throughout Iran without being detected. The book will require the Iranian government to waste more of its meager resources on what will undoubtedly be seen as a new threat from Israel.”
More Middle East tension… Iran increases military preparedness… Tel Aviv uses the situation to get more “defense” aid from Washington. It’s an all too familiar syndrome in which Israel comes out on top.
That’s if the charade is not exposed—and CNI is determined to expose this book and the Mossad’s dangerous threat to American security.
Your Council for the National Interest has other news and background info on the Mossad, including a story from the French newspaper Le Figaro about Isreal’s efforts to recruit Iranian dissidents to undermine the Iranian government.
I recommend you visit our website to research the Mossad and find out more about Israel’s intelligence operations. And please ask your friends and allies to do so, too. Frankly, I’m proud to say there is no other website quite like ours. Your generous financial support keeps it fresh and full of insightful analysis.
We are now in the midst of the traditional slow summer months—a time when financial support becomes sluggish. That’s why I am asking you to help CNI with a tax deductible gift of $50 or $35 or even $100 right away. Our work goes on whether it’s vacation time or not, and we must pay expenses to keep the website fresh and full of original and hard to find resources.
The motto of Israel’s Mossad translates as “by way of deception you shall make war.” Your CNI works to uncover the Israel lobby’s stranglehold over America’s political process and its foreign policy. It is particularly important that we expose Tel Aviv’s intelligence operations that are working to undermine Washington’s military and diplomatic standing on the world stage.
I hope CNI can count on your continued support. Whether your gift is $100 or $50 or even $20, it is sorely needed this month. May I hear from you soon?
Alison Weir, President
