THE SIXTH EDITION OF THE COMPELLING AND CONTROVERSIAL HISTORY OF ISRAEL'S SECRET INTELLIGENCE AGENCY In the secret world of spies and covert operations, no other intelligence service continues to be surrounded by myth and mystery, or commands respect and fear like Israel's Mossad. Formed in 1951 to ensure an embattled Israel's future, the Mossad has been responsible for the most audacious and thrilling feats of espionage, counterterrorism, and assassination ever ventured. Gideon's Spies draws from classified documents, confidential sources, and closed-door interviews with Mossad agents, informants, and spymasters to reveal the organization's deepest secrets. Revised and updated for 2012, this new edition includes the story of how Mossad assassinated the Hamas terror commander in Dubai in 2010, a look inside the modern Mossad training school, the departure of long-serving Mossad chief Meir Dagan and appointment of Tamir Pardo, Mossad's failure to provide the intelligence for the infamous Gaza flotilla raid, and the unresolved murder of a Mossad spy in London.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The first definitive history of the Mossad, Shin Bet, and the IDF’s targeted killing programs, hailed by The New York Times as “an exceptional work, a humane book about an incendiary subject.” The Talmud says: “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first.” This instinct to take every measure, even the most aggressive, to defend the Jewish people is hardwired into Israel’s DNA. From the very beginning of its statehood in 1948, protecting the nation from harm has been the responsibility of its intelligence community and armed services, and there is one weapon in their vast arsenal that they have relied upon to thwart the most serious threats: Targeted assassinations have been used countless times, on enemies large and small, sometimes in response to attacks against the Israeli people and sometimes preemptively. In this page-turning, eye-opening book, journalist and military analyst Ronen Bergman—praised by David Remnick as “arguably [Israel’s] best investigative reporter”—offers a riveting inside account of the targeted killing programs: their successes, their failures, and the moral and political price exacted on the men and women who approved and carried out the missions. Bergman has gained the exceedingly rare cooperation of many current and former members of the Israeli government, including Prime Ministers Shimon Peres, Ehud Barak, Ariel Sharon, and Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as high-level figures in the country’s military and intelligence services: the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), the Mossad (the world’s most feared intelligence agency), Caesarea (a “Mossad within the Mossad” that carries out attacks on the highest-value targets), and the Shin Bet (an internal security service that implemented the largest targeted assassination campaign ever, in order to stop what had once appeared to be unstoppable: suicide terrorism). Including never-before-reported, behind-the-curtain accounts of key operations, and based on hundreds of on-the-record interviews and thousands of files to which Bergman has gotten exclusive access over his decades of reporting, Rise and Kill First brings us deep into the heart of Israel’s most secret activities. Bergman traces, from statehood to the present, the gripping events and thorny ethical questions underlying Israel’s targeted killing campaign, which has shaped the Israeli nation, the Middle East, and the entire world. “A remarkable feat of fearless and responsible reporting . . . important, timely, and informative.”—John le Carré

Since their formation in 1949, the Mossad has continually lived up to the name given to them, the godfather of all spy agencies. They combine intellectual leadership with a ruthlessness that has impressed both, allies and foes alike. Their willingness to use extreme tactics like kidnapping and assassination to track their enemies is something out of a fiction book. It is because of these methods that the nation of Israel has been able to hold its ground in such an unstable area of the world. Israel, since its formation as a country, has been seen as a usurper of the land formerly owned by its neighbor, Palestine. An argument that will continue until one of the countries is either destroyed or disarmed. Palestine, being an Arab nation, has many allies in the surrounding areas, giving them a geographical advantage. Be that as it may, the drive and mercilessness of the Mossad is able to keep Israel's head above water and their interests intact; however, Israel's national intelligence agency's reach is far greater than just the middle east. They have a global network. The agency has performed-or been a part of-some of the boldest and fearless operations ever executed. For example, after the Munich Massacre, Israel demanded something other than justice. They wanted vengeance. To do so, the Mossad scoured the globe for those that were a part of the terrorist group Black September and killed all the suspected conspirators. The Jewish religion has been combating anti-Semitism since the Egypt in the old testament-the Mossad is the result. This book is going to dive deep into the Mossad achieves to illuminate other controversial missions like the operation, "Wrath of God" that displayed their unyielding nature towards those that strike against them. It is this persistence that makes them such an effective fighting force in Israel's arsenal.

Shedding light on tumultuous events in Syria, Iran, and the entire Middle East, SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON: INSIDE ISRAEL'S SECRET WARS covers more ground than any other book about modern-day Israel. Its 25 action-packed chapters and detailed endnotes are filled with colorful characters, who risk their lives and reputations in the secret service of their nation. This is a history of Israel's espionage and security network from 1948 until the present day, written by the best selling authors of EVERY SPY A PRINCE: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF ISRAEL'S INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY. This book takes you inside the Middle East crises of today, analyzing Iran's nuclear program and challenges for the United States. The authors also examined U.S.-Israeli relations in FRIENDS IN DEED. Dan Raviv is a TV correspondent in Washington for i24NEWS after reporting overseas for CBS News, and Yossi Melman is an award-winning Israeli reporter and columnist based in Tel Aviv. They have a global reputation for being fair and balanced, without exaggeration about Israel's covert achievements -- and some flaws -- in the defense of a nation that always sees itself as embattled. Chapter 1 of SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is titled "Stopping Iran," then come chapters with exclusive and carefully considered history -- showing how the behavior and lessons learned in wars and adventures affect the decisions Israel must make today. Later chapters focus on the secret bombing of a nuclear reactor in Syria, the murder by a Mossad team in a Dubai hotel (Was it a mistake?), and blasting the Steven Spielberg movie "Munich" for making it look like Mossad hit men suffered frustration and regrets. SPIES AGAINST ARMAGEDDON is well researched, balanced, and a remarkably enjoyable read.
