Danny Yatom, the head of the Mossad, sent a spy team in March, 1997, to Washington D.C. based on reports "that President Clinton was repeatedly indulging in phone-sex calls with a former White House aide, Monica Lewinsky ... Knowing the White House was totally protected by electronic counter-measures, the yahalomin team focused on Lewinsky's apartment. They began to intercept explicit phone calls from the president to Lewinsky. The recordings were couriered by diplomatic bag to Tel Aviv."
Ken Starr in the Starr Report says that on March 29, 1997 "[Bill] told [Monica] that he suspected a foreign embassy ... was taping his telephones. If anyone ever asked about their phone sex, she should say that they knew that their calls were being monitored all day long, and the phone sex was a put on." [Gideon's Spies, p.104]
Just that little nugget above is reason enough to get this book.
I wonder how many *other* compromised U.S. politicians the Mossad has the dirt on?
In 1994 when Bobbie Ray Inman was up for consideration as the Secretary of Defense, there was a Mossad-inspired - or really American Zionist inspired - calling campaign to paint Inman as a homosexual. Inman is a married man and he may or may not be a man with a closet homosexual history. I do know this, after this campaign began Inman melted like a chocolate candy bar in the sun and withdrew his Secretary of Defense nomination.
Calls (to journalists) were also made concerning Inman's alleged homosexuality even *after* he withdrew his nomination. Years later Bobbie Ray Inman is still stung by what happened to him. I do not know if the "smears" were true or not, but I suspect they were given the way Inman collapsed so quickly.
The Mossad and American Zionists were outraged that Inman had restricted that satellite maps that the Israelis could look at to about 200 or 250 miles around Israel. Apparently, Israel feels it has the right to the entire panoply of U.S. intelligence.
After the dramatic introductory story, the author settles into a more traditional format based on the chronological events, and history of the Israeli spy agency, Mossad. Mossad has enjoyed a much more secretive past than its American counterparts. This alone, has me celebrating the encyclopedic work the author provides in this book. I literally could not put it down, and found myself reading it every time I had even a moment to spare.
The sources, and intimate knowledge the author provides is phenomenal. He was afforded many hours of interviews with intricate members that commented directly and anonymously. The history of the agency and incidents in which they were involved are fascinating. The author details the successes as well as the failures in dynamic detail.
This is a long book, but I highly recommend it for those interested in an absolutely fascinating look into this secretive agency and World History! Bravo!!!!
And I must tell you that the author really wrote about this Israeli excellent secret service, called Mossad.
The main Mossad's actions are all in this book.
One more thing. The author also describes Mossad's failures and scandals.
The author made dozens of interviews with Mossad's figures and also made interviews with many Mossad's enemies.
It took about two weeks, until I read this great book.
If you want to read just one book about the Mossad, this is my tip for you.

I know, but read this book and you will know what katsas and kidons means.
