There’s no country like Israel. Its population is only around 6 million, yet Israel is in the headlines all the time.
And there’s nothing like Israeli intelligence. Soon after independence in 1948, the leaders decided that they needed the best intelligence — feeling they were surrounded by enemies. The Mossad is famous, as the agency for foreign operations. But the largest agency is Aman, the military intelligence, which has a long record planting Israeli agents in enemy nations. The Israelis are innovative, and some might say they’re almost desperate — with a sense of having their backs against the wall. Have they managed to penetrate Iran, so they can carry out sabotage and assassinations? That’s part of the history of Israeli intelligence.
