After three years' military service, Mordechai Vanunu answered an ad for a control room job at the nuclear research center near Dimona. In 1976 he was assigned to Mochon 2, where he discovered the nuclear weapons program that he later divulged to Peter Hounam. Before his story could be published however, Vanunu met Cindy, a beautiful American woman who lured him to Rome. Caught in a trap, he was attacked by agents from Mossad (the Israeli secret service), drugged, and smuggled to Israel to stand trial for treason. Since then, Vanunu has spent more than 12 years in solitary confinement. In The Woman from Mossad, Hounam details the kidnapping and what happened to Cindy when she was exposed by the author. He also names governments that secretly helped Israel.

Mossad is universally recognised as the greatest intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in a thick veil of secrecy. Many of its enthralling feats are still unknown; most of its heroes remain unnamed. From the kidnapping of Eichmann in Argentina and the systematic tracking down of those responsible for the Munich massacre to lesser-known episodes of astonishing espionage, this extraordinary book describes the dramatic, largely secret history of Mossad and the Israeli intelligence community. Examining the covert operations, the targeted assassinations and the paramilitary activities within and outside Israel, Michael Bar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal detail the great stories of Mossad and reveal the personal tales of some of the best Mossad agents and leaders to serve their country.

This book describes the clandestine missions that were defining moments in the evolution of the Mossad, including its pursuit of the Black September terrorists who murdered Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games, its acquisition on the high seas of yellowcake uranium for Israel's undeclared nuclear weapons program, and its role in bringing to justice Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. The agency's more questionable deeds are also covered, among them the assassination of civilian scientists associated with Iraq's nuclear energy program and the abduction of Israeli citizen Mordechai Vanunu, who, like Edward Snowden, has been variously depicted as a principled whistleblower and an unscrupulous traitor. Taken together, the missions discussed in this volume illustrate the Mossad's character, creativity and courage, while acknowledging the problematical moral dimensions of its operations.

Some of the incredible episodes Gordon Thomas writes about seem like they belong in fiction, and yet this is a first-rate non-fiction account.' GQ 'Using eye-witness accounts from directors, agents, and even assassins, Thomas goes where few writers have gone before - inside Mossad, Israel's ruthless, super-secretive intelligence agency.'

Whether it is the Eichmann capture, the Munich revenge plot or the Entebbe rescue mission, they all illustrate the independence and determination of Israel’s intelligence community. They also show that the tiny Middle Eastern country is willing to take a lot of risks to do things its own way. Only hours after the nation of Israel was established on May 14, 1948, five neighboring Arab nations attacked, hoping to wipe out the new country. The attackers had far more soldiers and weapons than Israel but underestimated how much information Israeli spies had already gathered about the Arab nations’ military capabilities and strategies. The war quickly turned in Israel’s favor. Israel’s survival from 1948 to today has depended on its maintaining a well-established intelligence network to gather secret data, carry out covert operations, and counter terrorism. At the heart of this network is the Mossad, a shadowy organization charged with keeping Israel safe from outside enemies by any means necessary. Read all about Israel’s formidable spy network and their espionage missions around the world. Michael E. Goodman was born in Savannah, Georgia. He attended Yale University and graduate school at Brown University. He began as a high school English teacher in Providence, RI, and Teaneck, NJ, before turning to writing and editing and serving as an executive in corporate communications. He is a former senior editor at Scholastic and Prentice-Hall and executive editor at Peoples Education.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 In 1971, the Israeli Defense Forces launched Operation Chameleon, in which they killed the leaders of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist group. The operation was planned by Meir Dagan, a young commander who had posed as Lebanese terrorists and met with the terrorist leaders. #2 Dagan was a stocky young man who had applied to join the most prestigious Israeli commando unit, Sayeret Matkal. He was sent to the Gaza strip in 1971, where he created the first undercover Israeli commando unit. They operated in Arab disguise to move freely in Arab crowds and reach their targets undetected. #3 Dagan was a man haunted by the suffering of his family and the Jews during the Holocaust. He dedicated his life to the defense of the newborn State of Israel. #4 Dagan was a retired general when he was asked to be the Mossad chief by Prime Minister Arik Sharon. The Mossad was losing steam, and several failures in the preceding years had dealt severe blows to its prestige.
