The Mossad and Other Israeli Spies
Michael E. Goodman
ISBN 978-93-90166-46-6  
Spies Around the World Series

Whether it is the Eichmann capture, the Munich revenge plot or the Entebbe rescue mission, they all illustrate the independence and determination of Israelís 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 nationsí military capabilities and strategies. The war quickly turned in Israelís favor. Israelís 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 Israelís formidable spy network and their espionage missions around the world.

The Mossad: Six Landmark Missions
Marc E. Vargo
ISBN 978-93-91019-48-8  
Top-Secret Ops that Forged the Israeli Secret Service

THE MOSSAD: Six Landmark Missions 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 Israelís undeclared nuclear weapons program, and its role in bringing to justice Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.

The agencyís more questionable deeds are also covered, among them the assassination of civilian scientists associated with Iraqís 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 Mossadís character, creativity and courage, while acknowledging the problematical moral dimensions of its operations.

MARC E. VARGO is a US-based author who has written seven nonfiction books and numerous articles in professional journals.

Mossad Exodus
Gad Shimron
ISBN 978-93-87944-93-0  
The Daring Undercover Rescue of the Lost Jewish Tribe

The subject of the movie Red Sea Diving Resort

The amazing story told firsthand by Gad Shimron in Mossad Exodus is now the subject of a new movie called Red Sea Diving Resort.

In 1977, Israelís Mossad spy agency was given an assignment far different from its usual cloak and dagger activities. It was ordered by then Prime Minister Menachem Begin to rescue thousands of Ethiopian Jewish refugees in Sudan. No stranger to action in enemy countries, the agency established a covert forward base in a deserted holiday village in Sudan, and deployed a handful of operatives to launch and oversee the exodus of the refugees to the Promised Land, by sea and by air, in the early 1980s.

This book offers a thrilling firsthand account of how the operation was put in place, and how the Mossad team in Sudan brought it off, despite great personal risk, running a partying vacation spot, Arous Holiday Village, for wealthy tourists by day as they stole through the Sudanese desert to rescue desperate refugees by night. Author Gad Shimron was one of the agents based at Arous. Enhanced by his wide-ranging historical observations and his crisp, incisive prose, this is at once an entertaining read and a powerful tale of idealistic heroism.

Gad Shimron joined the Mossad during his student days in Jerusalem. Later he worked as a journalist for Kol Israel, the state-run radio, anchored Good Morning Israel on TV Channel 1 and is currently senior editor and defense commentator for the Tel Aviv-based Maariv daily. This is his seventh book.
