Mossad: A personal insight into Mossad and the murder of a top Iranian nuclear scientist

Inside a secret bomb-proof building in a Tel Aviv suburb, which Google Earth does not include on its website, some of the occupants last week exchanged high-fives at their work stations. According to insiders, several sent each other the same message: The Chief’s Last Hit.

That “chief” was Meir Dagan, the outgoing head of Mossad. On his first day in office eight years ago, Mr Dagan had stood on a table in the organisation’s canteen and promised to support any operation against any of Israel’s enemies, with every means he had — legal or illegal. He could allow his field agents to use prescribed nerve toxins, dumdum bullets and methods of killing that even the Russian or Chinese secret services would not use.

Earlier this month, “the chief” and a small team of specialists — analysts, weapons experts and psychologists – met in a conference room adjoining his office. With them was a brigadier-general, the head of the kidon. Named after the Hebrew word for bayonet, the kidon is a unit with 38 elite assassins at its disposal, including five women. Operating out of a military base in the Negev Desert, all are in their twenties, and trained both as expert killers and as expert linguists: a number are fluent in Persian.

Last Monday, a thousand miles further east in the Iranian capital, Tehran, it appears that the kidon put both of those skills into practice, killing a top nuclear scientist and critically injuring a second as they drove through the rush-hour traffic. Both were key figures in the Iranian nuclear programme, which Tehran insists is for civilian use only, but which Mossad has long perceived as the ultimate expression of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s threat to “wipe Israel off the map”.

In one car was 45-year-old Majid Shahriyari, Iran’s leading expert in designing nuclear switches, a key part in the construction of nuclear weapons. Ali Alker Saler, an Iranian nuclear official, has described Shahriyari’s work as “only handling the big projects”. The week before he was assassinated, the nuclear scientist had returned from North Korea. Intelligence sources in Seoul have suggested that Mr Shahriyari had gone to Pyongyang to discuss a co-production deal over nuclear centrifuges.


Well, the intense reading and story go on from there. You gotta love the Mossad. Seriously. Don't Mess with 'Em. Go to the story and finish this one. It puts Isreal into modern perspective-IMO.

I am still sticking with them. I know the arguements are strong on both sides but I think I like their side better.

If this is what they have to do to keep their country alive-then so be it. They are not the aggressors. I do think the next big one will start their and quickly spread. Lets hope not but we need to prepare for the worst.

What. If they were under the constant threat of being wipedout, they wouldn't have to be in the defensive posture that they are.

They only kept what was needed for their safety after the last time the Arabs and others got together to attempt to wipe 'em out.

One thing for sure, I am not gonna sit OVER HERE and pass judgement on them. Not until I walk a mile in their shoes.

Yes and so is America apparently. Always under threat of being wiped out. Anyways this is what they want constant war. Their goal is to go from the Nile to the Euphrates. Even zionists on ats will admit to this. This is why a picture of greater Israel is on the back of one of their coins. Slowly but surely they are getting it done all while playing the victim of course.

I can't agree with that statement. If true, we wouldn't be talking about Iran and the problem they are, or have, become.
