About the Book

SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is a powerful, vivid history of Israel’s intelligence community – led by the famous and feared Mossad – from the country’s independence in 1948 right up to the crises of today.  Israel’s battle plan, aimed at stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program, may drag the United States into war and soaring oil prices.  The plan is based on deception, sabotage, assassination, and intimidation.  The book tells the story, never told before, of Kidon – the super-secret unit that is like a Mossad within the Mossad.  Kidon carries out special operations, including assassinations and sabotage.  Kidon had a daring role in destroying Syria’s nuclear reactor in 2007.

Israel’s methods and motivations can be fully understood only when seeing how they developed over the decades.  Bold spies have penetrated enemy capitals, and secret agencies felt a historic responsibility to protect Jews worldwide.  The authors chronicle major changes in Israeli intelligence agencies’ priorities – away from Palestinian peace prospects, shifting to Iran as the main focus.  The book also exposes some episodes of which Israeli spies are ashamed; scandals they would prefer remain buried.  Still, in the age of the internet and spy satellites, Israel is the most innovative nation in the use of espionage as an alternative to war.

Among the burning questions addressed and answered in SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON are these: Who planted a powerful computer worm in Iran’s uranium enrichment centrifuges?  Who has been motorcycling boldly through the streets of Tehran, assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists?  Are Israeli spies regularly inside Iran and other enemy countries?  Did the Mossad make a huge mistake when two dozen of its operatives were seen by hotel security cameras in Dubai, or was it a successful murder mission?  Do the assassins, as portrayed in the movie “Munich,” really feel pangs of conscience?  Have Israel’s enemies ever managed to plant agents in the Israeli government?  Does the United States really trust Israeli intelligence, or is the relationship limited by mutual mistrust?  Why do U.S. security agencies believe their close ally is spying on America?  Is Israel trying to maneuver the U.S. into attacking Iran?

This book contains new information about the Mossad director from 2002 to 2010, Meir Dagan, and how he put “the dagger back between the teeth” of the spy agency.  When he publicly declares that he opposes an Israeli military strike on Iran, what does he favor instead?  The authors of this book have spoken with all the major players, and a multitude of minor players as well, to gain a balanced and deep understanding of Israeli actions at times of crisis – and Israel almost always feels it is in a crisis.
