In 1990 Victor Ostrovsky, a former Mossad agent, became an international celebrity when the state of Israel attempted to ban his first account of Mossad misdeeds, By Way of Deception. Ostrovsky reveals here for the first time that for several years following his termination from the Mossad, he worked clandestinely with agency moderates. Under the guise of "disaffected former agent", Ostrovsky infiltrated the KGB, MI5, and French, Jordanian, and Egyptian intelligence in an attempt to derail operations planned by Mossad extremists. Frighteningly, the activities pursued by right-wing factions within the agency constitute a massive abuse of power that has had global consequences. They include: undermining the Arab-Israeli peace process through counterfeiting, assassination, and support of religious radicals; facilitating lethal biological experiments on Palestinians and Soweto blacks; organizing smear campaigns against world leaders; offering support for a Soviet hard-liner coup; killing an Israeli general, a leading German politician, a Canadian scientist, and a Kuwaiti journalist; using "disinformation" to trigger American combat strikes against Israel's enemies; and much, much more...

Hard to believe the stories, considering how compartmentalized Mossad is. Interesting if you treat it as a spy novel. Read full review
