Mossad control of Israel?

On 31 March 2006, Haaretz reported that, back in 1997, Hamas offered a 30 year cease-fire.

Apparently Mossad did not want a cease fire and decided to kill the head of Hamas?

In 1997, Hamas offered a 30 year cease-fire.

Jordan's King Hussein sent the offer, via a Mossad agent, to Israel's Netanyahu.

Allegedly, it took a few days for the offer to get to Netanyahu.

Before the message arrived, Mossad tried to murder the leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshal, in Jordan.

This is one of the details that former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy reveals in his book, "Man in the Shadows," out in Britain on 4 April 2006.

Mossad squad tried to assassinate Meshal by drizzling poison in his ear.

The attempt failed and two of the agents were captured.

Halevy reveals that Shamir met with Hussein three times and that they ultimately developed a great deal of mutual appreciation.

Ex-spy boss wields unexpected clout

From the Sydney Morning Herald

March 31, 2006

JERUSALEM: Israel's next government is likely to include a colourful former spy boss who may still be wanted in the US for espionage.

Rafi Eitan, 79, led the previously unknown pensioners' party, Gil, to win a remarkable seven seats in the 120-seat Knesset, making him a prime target for the acting Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, as he tries to build a centre-left coalition.

The party capitalised on widespread dissatisfaction with mainstream parties and sympathy for the plight of the elderly, who have suffered big welfare cuts in the past three years.

But some voters said they were supporting Mr Eitan's group of elderly political debutants because of his leading role in the campaign to free Jonathan Pollard, a US Navy intelligence analyst jailed for life in 1986 for selling secrets to Israel.

Mr Eitan had been Pollard's handler and was sought by the FBI. He subsequently accepted responsibility for the operation and resigned as head of the Bureau of Scientific Relations, an Israeli espionage agency. He has not visited the US since for fear of arrest.

At the time of the Pollard affair, Mr Eitan was already celebrated in Israeli security circles for his leading role in the capture of fugitive Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, whom Mossad had tracked down to Argentina in 1960.

Despite his nominal status as a pensioner, Mr Eitan is a wealthy businessman, having been appointed head of Israel's state chemicals corporation after retiring from intelligence work.

He has since built up big interests in Cuba, where he is said to be close to Fidel Castro.
