Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ari Ben-Menashe is one of the most dangerous reegade agents ever to defect from Israeli intelligence. It is hard to think of anyone who has told us more about the secrets of the intelligence world than he. His charges have been corroborated." - Craig Unger, in the Village Voice

About the Author

Ari Ben-Menashe was born December 4, 1951, in Tehran, Iran, to an Iraqi-Jewish family. In 1966 he emigrated to Israel. From 1974 to 1977 he served in the Israel Defense Forces, in Signals intelligence. In the years 1977 to 1987 he was a civilian employee of the External Relations Department of IDF Military Intelligence. From 1987 to 1989, he was a special intelligence advisor to Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir. He speaks Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew, English, French, and Spanish.

Since 1990, he been a man without a country, dividing his time among England, the United States, and Australia. He cannot, for obvious reasons, return to Israel.

For those who are interested in MidEast affairs (as myself) this covers a fascinating topic and is written in a fluid style, which adds up to a truly gripping read.
The only reason for which I am not awarding this book 5 stars (and were it possible 6 or 7 stars) is the fact that many of the claims are indeed extreme...
Too much of the book simply adds up to bill this as complete fiction. Several other books (amongst which "The Samson Option", written by a renown journalist) have been based on Ben-Menashe's knowledge. Investigations have sprung up in the US and in Australia. Of course, these haven't lead far, but this is a serious case of the poeple in power charged with investigating the people in power - so what would you really expect?
Whilst I was reading this book I kept my copy of "Israels Secret Wars" at hand to verify events, facts and dates, and together with a bit of searching around the net, the essence of it all seems to add up.
Right from the start the author makes his embitterment with the "system" clear, so accusing him of having an axe to grind is pretty lame - add to that the fact that amongst his sworn enemies (at the end) was the media mogul R. Maxwell (who unleashed the full weight of his media empire to destroy his credibility) and you end up without much of a case...
****************************
TO SUM IT UP: You have to be deeply cynical, but alas perhaps realistic, to accept all that is stated in this book. In the end, however, I am one who believes that where there's smoke, there's got to be some fire as well, and this book discloses a hell of a lot of smoke!

I have been investigating this book for about ten years now and my conclusion is that A B-M was telling what he knew.
Any errors are due to his not being aware of certain things, like the details relating to certain Arab regimes etc.
But in general A B-M had no reason to make up this stuff, which even a seasoned fiction writer could not have delineated with so much sharp detail.
The various establishments that have tried to discredit him have in fact discredited themselves, amongst them are Newsweek magazine, the White House reporter Steven Emerson and various Wikipedia aministrators that are employed by AIPAC.

Amazing book on the inner workings of Mossad, Israeli govt, CIA, the Republicans, Democrats, etc. What a bunch of gangsters. Even the cynical will be surprised.

Perfect!!! Super-fast delivery, less than a week. Book in great condition as described (actually better than described). Would recommend this seller to anyone, and I would go out of my way to use this seller again, even if I had to pay a little more to do it.

This is a most unusual book and the like of it will not be seen for a long time. It was created by accident.
The content is so astonishing that most people have refused to believe it.

obviously true -- shows us that the public knows nothing about what is going on between countries. Israel - Iran - Guatemala - no wonder this author's townhouse was recently burned down in Canada.
