- In a fascinating plot, full of intrigue and betrayal,
Mossad, RAW and Israeli-Russian-Ukrainian drug mafia seem to have joined
hands to catch the ultimate prize: The Entire World.
- The whole story may never be available but we have put
together enough pieces to give you a fair idea of what may be in store
for all of us.
- There are many ways to tell this story but let us begin
at the most convenient point: Recent recruitment drive of Mossad.
- "If you are sensitive, creative and charming, Mossad
wants you," says a Mossad recruitment poster published in The Jerusalem
Post and other Israeli newspapers on 22 June 2001.
- Trying to entice brilliant and talented young Jews, the
poster says, "The Mossad has opened its gates. Not to everybody, not
to many, but maybe to you".
- Describing the qualities expected of aspiring candidates,
the poster explains, "You need to be sophisticated and creative, sensible
and sensitive, daring, charismatic and must come with a sense of personal
and national mission."
- It goes says on to say that Mossad is looking for people
who can "drag, enthrall and motivate."
- The purpose of the poster was to recruit a fresh batch
of 'Case Officers'.
- Case officers are the heart of any intelligence network.
Their main task is to recruit operatives and informers in foreign countries,
particularly in enemy countries, or those with access to secret information
around the world.
- Mossad's recruitment ad published in Hebrew
- A statement from Israeli Prime Minister's office elaborates:
"Intelligence that a case officer brings in allows the political level
to make strategic decisions and is an instrument in the hands of the security
bodies to successfully carry out the most complicated missions."
- The statement also adds: "The position requires
intermittent service abroad."
- What the statement and the poster omit to mention is
that the newly recruited case officers will be assigned to Central Asia,
Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan.
- Recruitment drive for case officers was a part of a larger
campaign run by Mossad between April 2001 and July 2001. During this period,
Mossad sought to recruit case officers, communication specialists, linguists,
electronics and computer specialists and entry level operatives (age 22-28).
- This was the first time that Mossad used mass media to
attract fresh blood. Earlier recruitment consisted of 'one brings one method'
i.e. an already serving officer was supposed to bring in a trusted friend.
- Here we are not going to comment on the odd coincidence
that the most extensive recruitment drive by Mossad ran its course just
prior to 9/11. Neither are we going to comment on the fact that minimum
training period for Mossad officers is 4 months, which means that officers
recruited in April 2001 will be ready for field work in September 2001.
- Mossad is the nickname of 'The Institute for Intelligence
and Special Tasks' (ha-Mossad le-Modiin ule-Tafkidim Meyuhadim). A compact
body of about 1500 regular employees, Mossad relies on Jews and sympathizers
worldwide for its operations. During last couple of years it has begun
paying special attention to Pakistan, Iran and Central Asia.
- Hi-Tech Mossad
- Dan Yahkin, a Jewish analyst, wrote an article which
was published on 19 April 2001 in Globes, a Tel Aviv publication. He narrates
the story of 'Gil' and 'Or', pseudonym of two former operatives of Mossad.
The contention behind his narrative is that Mossad is as hi tech as any
outfit in the world, military or otherwise.
- In his interview with Yahkim, 'Or' explains, "There
are a number of ways of doing things. If I want to infiltrate a base, for
example, I can break through the gate, dress up as an officer, or crawl
under the fence. In the first year, there were attempts to develop the
weapon we developed in the department using a more power-oriented approach.
Nothing came of that, and we realized pretty quickly that we had to be
audacious, and the more cunning we were the greater our chance of success.
It is also more appropriate to the spirit of the place and its operational
- That understanding, and the development work that came
in its wake, won Or the Israel Security Prize three years ago. "There
are two winners every year," Or relates. "The second project
that won, which was also a stunning one, belongs to Intelligence Corps.
But there were only 20 people working in our group, while there were some
500 in the project that took second prize, working over 4 years. The strength
of what we did lay in its cunning, and that's very typical of the Mossad's
- Cunning and hi tech, that is the formula for Mossad's
success in most projects it undertakes.
- 'Or' also explains the general composition of a typical
Mossad outfit in these words: "There are very sophisticated systems.
For example, there are departments involved more in electronics -- from
VLSI to embedded and RF systems. In my department, 20 percent of the people
were involved in electronics and 80 percent were dealing with computers.
In other departments, there are other ratios of electronics and computer
people and physicists."
- Shedding some light on internal structure of Mossad,
'Or' says, "Mossad has a total of eight departments, though some details
of the internal organization of the agency remain obscure.
- "Collections Department is the largest, with responsibility
for espionage operations, with offices abroad under both diplomatic and
unofficial cover. The department consists of a number of desks which are
responsible for specific geographical regions, directing case officers
based at "stations" around the world, and the agents they control.
- "Political Action and Liaison Department conducts
political activities and liaison with friendly foreign intelligence services
and with nations with which Israel does not have normal diplomatic relations.
In larger stations, such as Paris, Mossad customarily had under embassy
cover two regional controllers: one to serve the Collections Department
and the other the Political Action and Liaison Department.
- "Special Operations Division, also known as Metsada,
conducts highly sensitive assassinations, sabotage, paramilitary, and psychological
- "LAP (Lohamah Psichlogit) Department is responsible
for psychological warfare, propaganda and deception operations.
- "Research Department is responsible for intelligence
production, including daily situation reports, weekly summaries and detailed
monthly reports. The Department is organized into 15 geographically specialized
sections or "desks", including the USA, Canada and Western Europe,
Latin America, Former Soviet Union, China, Africa, the Maghreb (Morocco,
Algeria, Tunisia), Libya, Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, the United
Arab Emirates and Iran. A "nuclear" desk is focused on special
weapons related issues.
- "Technology Department is responsible for development
of advanced technologies for support of Mossad operations. In April 2001,
the Mossad published a "help wanted" ad in the Israeli press
seeking electronics engineers and computer scientists for the Mossad technology
- Since most Mossad operatives come from hi tech fields,
they do the most natural thing when they leave Mossad i.e. they launch
a start up company in IT, communications, computers and other related fields.
The 'Or' of this story launched a successful company after leaving Mossad
and his company is now reputedly worth US $ 15 million and employs more
than 70 highly qualified personnel.
- Such persons usually move their operations to foreign
countries and besides making tons of money, continue serving their motherland
in hi tech fashion.
- Since most former operatives of Mossad are hi tech specialists,
it is not difficult for them to launch a start up company and make it successful
on its merit alone. While spreading out into Central Asia, Pakistan and
Iran, these operatives are likely to arrive with proposals for companies
which deal with IT solutions, software engineering, computer and electronics
hardware expertise, communications and other related fields.
- They are also most likely to enter through high profile
and vocal NGOs.
- Raw-Mossad Connection
- Janes information group, the world's foremost source
on intelligence information, reported in July 2001 that "The Indian
spy agency RAW and the Israeli spy agency Mossad have created "four
new agencies" to infiltrate Pakistan to target important religious
and military personalities, journalists, judges, lawyers and bureaucrats.
In addition, bombs would be exploded in trains, railway stations, bridges,
bus stations, cinemas, hotels and mosques of rival Islamic sects to incite
sectarianism. Pakistani intelligence agencies also said that RAW had constituted
a plan to lure Pakistani men between 20 and 30 years of age to visit India
so that they could be entrapped 'in cases of fake currency and subversion'
and then be coerced to spy for India."
- This was high point of cementing an unholy alliance which
began much earlier and which continues to tighten its noose around the
neck of Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asia.
- It appears that RAW and Mossad -- either singly or jointly,
either covertly or overtly -- have been making efforts to penetrate sensitive
circles of top echelon in Pakistan.
- It cannot be said with certainty but there are some reasons
to assume that Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, wittingly
or unwittingly, played in the hands of RAW-Mossad masterminds. High ups
in Pakistan's military still believe that Benazir Bhutto has connections
with RAW-Mossad nexus and General Pervez Musharraf himself declared her
as "security risk" during a chat with Pakistan's leading editors
and correspondents just before his referendum campaign.
- Benazir's visit to India last year at a time when Pakistan
was going through one of the worst crises in its history, and her statements
there which aimed to undermine the whole foundation of Pakistan, generated
more than a flicker of doubt in analytic minds. The basic question arises:
Who is Benazir Bhutto? Leaving BB to her own fate, let's return to RAW-Mossad
- What is clear right now is that Indian RAW and Israeli
Mossad are collaborating extensively to curb the freedom movement of Kashmir
and destabilize Pakistan.
- Indian newspaper The Pioneer, wrote on 3 March 2001:
"Fencing of the Indo-Pak border is not enough. To check Pakistan-sponsored
cross-border terrorism, top security experts of Israel have suggested that
hi-tech gadgets ranging from an electronic barrier system of radars to
thermal imaging devices should be immediately installed on India's sensitive
international border in J&K and Punjab sectors.
- "The team of experts, including officials of the
Mossad, the Israeli Army and the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), also
found shocking loopholes in the security arrangements relating to the much-talked
about Samjhauta Express. They advised that instead of Lahore, the train
should terminate on the Attari border. Sources in the Ministry of Home
Affairs said the Israeli experts surveyed the 198 km international border
in Jammu and Punjab and reviewed the route of the Samjhauta Express with
top officials of the Border Security Force.
- "Subsequently, former DG of the Border Security
Force, E.N. Ram Mohan was appointed as the consultant on border management.
Mr. Ram Mohan has recommended that besides radars, aerostate balloons and
FLIR equipment be used. India is keen to purchase surveillance aircraft
(UAVs) from Israel to gain intelligence teeth. The UAVs could also help
the state police in keeping an eye in naxalite-affected areas of Andhra
Pradesh. For several years, Mossad and Israel's internal intelligence agency,
Shinbhet, have utilised unmanned air vehicles to patrol the hypersensitive
- Qutbuddin Aziz, former minister in Pakistan embassy in
London, wrote an excellent article, titled "Dangerous Nexus between
Israel & India." It was published by a prominent Pakistani newspaper
on 1 April 2001. We must quote extensive from this article.
- Aziz writes: "Top secret details of Indian Home
Minister LK Advani's visit to Israel in June 2000, show that the deals
he has struck with the Israelis would make India and Israel partners in
threatening the Muslim world with diabolic conspiracies to fragment and
cripple it as a political force in the world. The details of his meetings
with Israel's rulers, particularly the heads of the Israeli Home Ministry
and its intelligence agencies, Mossad and Sabak, reveal that the arrangements
he has made for joint Indo-Israel espionage operations in key areas of
the Muslim world would make the Indian embassies in these Muslim countries
the eyes and ears of the worldwide cloak-and-dagger Israeli spy network.
- "Under the euphemism of "counter-terrorism",
India is allowing Israel to establish a huge spy establishment in India
which will, inter alia, unearth and monitor "Islamic fundamentalist"
individuals and groups for elimination by extra judicial process or by
cold-blooded murder and kidnapping.
- "The most important meeting Indian Home Minister
Advani had during his three-day Israeli tour on June 13-16 was with the
top brass of Israel's intelligence agencies in Tel Aviv. Heading the Israeli
team was the powerful chief of Israeli police, Yehuda Wilk, with the heads
of the Israeli intelligence agencies, Mossad and Sabak, and military officials
dealing with Israel's punitive and espionage operations against Arabs in
Israel, Palestine and neighbouring states such as Lebanon and Syria. Senior
officials from the Israeli Foreign Office and the defence and home ministries
attended this meeting. Israeli experts in bomb detection were also present.
- "Mr Advani's large team included India's highest-level
spymasters such as the Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Mr Shayamal
Dutta, the Director of the Central Bureau of Investigation, Mr R K Raghvan,
the head of the Indian Border Security Force, Mr E M Ram Mohan, Indian
Home Ministry's powerful Secretary K Pande who oversees the work of the
infamous Indian spy agency, RAW, and liaises with the Indian Foreign Office
in respect of undercover RAW agents working in Indian embassies abroad,
and a senior officer of India's military intelligence agency (equivalent
of Pakistan's ISI).
- "In this top-level meeting in Tel Aviv on June 14,
Advani reportedly thanked the Israeli government for its immense help to
India in security matters and spoke of the dangers India and Israel face
from their common enemies ie, Muslim neighbours.
- "Advani, it is reported, highly praised the help
provided by Mossad and army commando personnel to the Indian army in the
war on "Muslim militants" in Kashmir and against "Muslim
terrorists" such as the "Memon brothers" of Mumbai in Dubai.
Advani said he had, throughout his political career, advocated India's
recognition and friendship with Israel and that his party had played a
key role in forcing Congress government to have full diplomatic relations
with Israel in 1992.
- "He lauded the Indo-Israeli cooperation in the military,
economic and other fields. Advani recalled that India had voted in favour
of a US-sponsored motion in the UN for rescinding a UN resolution that
equated Zionism with racism. Mr Advani explained at length India's security
problems in which the danger from Pakistan and Indian Muslims getting Arab
money loomed large. Advani gave a long list of the special services in
spying and the anti-insurgency devices and spy equipment India urgently
needs from Israel to combat "Muslim terrorism".
- "In the June 14 Tel Aviv meeting, the Israeli Police
Chief, Yehuda Wilk, profusely praised India for its friendship with Israel
and pledged help to the Indian government in combating "Muslim terrorism"
that poses new threats to Israel and India. The heads of India's intelligence
agencies then briefed the Israeli side in the meeting on the ground situation
in India in respect of "Muslim terrorists", especially in Jammu
and Kashmir, and the new dangers coming up for India and Israel because
of the Pakistani bomb and the fear that Pakistan may give its nuclear weapons
to the anti-Israel Arabs.
- "The Indian side showed a keen interest in learning
from Israeli security experts how they had run the slice of Lebanon which
Israel ruled for 18 years and gave up recently. Some information about
the Israeli torture and investigation methods was gathered by the Indian
side from the Israelis with regard to dealing with Arab dissidents within
Israel and in the Palestinian Authority region.
- "The Indians gave the Israelis a long shopping list
of spying, torture and surveillance equipment such as electronic fencing
of sensitive sites, laser systems, short-range rockets, eagle-eyed long
distance snipers, observation blimps, giant shields, night vision device,
unmanned aircraft of the MALAT wing of the Israeli Aircraft Industries
Limited, special protective dress and gear for security personnel, cross
border snopping devices and gadgets, training and deployment of spies and
the special gear for them, use of computers and Internet for espionage
and disinformation, code-breaking, tailing of enemy agents and their elimination,
nuclear espionage, purloining state secrets of hostile countries and pooling
them for the good of India and Israel and their mutual friends.
- "The Israelis were interested in having access to
the secret reports of Indian undercover RAW diplomats from certain Muslim
countries of special interest to Israel (especially Pakistan, Libya and
Iran). India is apparently willing to grant access to Israeli agents to
the Indian Home Ministry's Central Intelligence Processing Unit (CIPU)
in New Delhi. This was recently set up under Advani's direction with Israeli
and US help. A handpicked RAW officer, trusted by Advani, heads this unit.
Israel wants full access to its information data. The Indian government
has already allowed access to it by American intelligence agencies now
working with the Indian government on so-called anti-terrorist assignments."
- Federation of American Scientists website comments on
RAW in these words : "RAW has engaged in disinformation campaigns,
espionage and sabotage against Pakistan and other neighboring countries.
RAW has enjoyed the backing of successive Indian governments in these efforts.
Working directly under the Prime Minister, the structure, rank, pay and
perks of the Research & Analysis Wing are kept secret from Parliament."
- Tarek Fatah, a scholar settled in Canada, wrote: "Britain's
authoritative and respected defense publication, Jane's Terrorism &
Security Monitor, reports that Israel and India have formed a military
relationship and that Israeli intelligence is active in Occupied Kashmir.
- "It says: "Israeli intelligence agencies have
been intensifying their relations with India's security apparatus and are
now understood to be heavily involved in helping New Delhi combat Islamic
militants in the disputed province of Kashmir..."
- Ed Blanche writes in Janes' Security on 14 August 2001:
"Israeli intelligence agencies have been intensifying their relations
with India's security apparatus and are now understood to be heavily involved
in helping New Delhi combat Islamic militants in the disputed province
of Kashmir, India's only Muslim-majority state which lies at the core of
the conflict with neighbouring Pakistan.
- "Israel has several teams now in Kashmir training
Indian counter-insurgency forces to fight the dozen separatist guerrilla
groups operating in the Indian-controlled sector of the disputed state.
- "The exact extent of the involvement in Kashmir
by Israel's intelligence agencies is far from clear, but it fits into Israel's
increasing focus on events in Central Asia, and as far a field as Indonesia,
the world's most populous Muslim state, to counteract Islamic fundamentalism,
which it perceives as a major threat.
- Shimon Peres, currently Israel's foreign minister, said
during a visit to New Delhi in January 2001 (shortly before he took his
current post in Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's coalition government) that
Israel was prepared to co-operate with India to fight terrorism. Weeks
earlier, an Israeli counterterrorism team, including military intelligence
specialists and senior police commanders, paid a visit to Indian-administered
Kashmir and other regions of the country that are grappling with anti-government
militants to assess India's security needs."
- If there is still any doubt as to the real intentions
of Israel, then please see this statement issued by David Ben Gurion, the
first Israeli Prime Minister. His words, as printed in the Jewish Chronicle,
9 August 1967, leave nothing to imagination:
- "The world Zionist movement should not be neglectful
of the dangers of Pakistan to it. And Pakistan now should be its first
target, for this ideological State is a threat to our existence. And Pakistan,
the whole of it, hates the Jews and loves the Arabs.
- "This lover of the Arabs is more dangerous to us
than the Arabs themselves. For that matter, it is most essential for the
world Zionism that it should now take immediate steps against Pakistan.
- "Whereas the inhabitants of the Indian peninsula
are Hindus whose hearts have been full of hatred towards Muslims, therefore,
India is the most important base for us to work there from against Pakistan.
- "It is essential that we exploit this base and strike
and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and
- One of the greatest abilities of Mossad is that it can
mobilize US resources anywhere to protect Israeli interests. Now when Pakistan
has already allowed US forces to use its soil, air and intelligence, is
not it possible that Mossad's clever brains workout a scenario and push
the American troops to do what the Mossad would like to do in Pakistan?
- Think about it.
