Overview

The first time the Mossad came calling, they wanted Victor Ostrovsky for their assassination unit, the kidon. He turned them down. The next time, he agreed to enter the grueling three-year training program to become a katsa, or intelligence case officer, for the legendary Israeli spy organization. By Way of Deception is the explosive chronicle of his experiences in the Mossad, and of two decades of their frightening and often ruthless covert activities around the world. Penetrating far deeper than the bestselling Every Spy a Prince, it is an insider's account of Mossad tactics and exploits. In chilling detail, Ostrovsky asserts that the Mossad refused to share critical knowledge of a planned suicide mission in Beirut, leading to the death of hundreds of U.S. Marines and French troops. He tells how they tracked Yasser Arafat by recruiting his driver and bodyguard; how they withheld information on the whereabouts of American hostages, paving the way for the Iran-Contra scandal; and how their intervention into secret UN negotiations led to the sudden resignation of ambassador Andrew Young and the downfall of his career. By Way of Deception describes the shocking scope and depth of the Mossad's influence, disclosing how Jewish communities in the U.S., Europe, and South America are armed and trained by the organization in secret 'self-defense' units, and how Mossad agents facilitate the drug trade in order to pay the enormous costs of its far-flung, clandestine operation. And it portrays a network that has grown dangerously out of control, as internal squabbles have led to the escape of terrorists and the pursuit of 'policies' completely at odds with the interests of the state of Israel. This document is possibly the most important and controversial book of its kind since Spycatcher.

    By Way A Deception

    This book is deceptive in some of its claims, such as the bugging of Andrew Young's apartment meetings with the PLO, come on. I also don't think the Mossad, the most professional intelligence agency around would be as sex-crazed as Mr. Ostrovsky claims. They clearly make mistakes, such as the Lilliehammer affair, and their involvement with Noriega. However, some of the claims are just hysterical in a poorly edited book. I am glad the Mossad let go of this numskull.

    NOT A WORK OF FICTION !!!

    I can't believe there are people out there that want to suggests this work is fiction. Nowhere will you find any statements and, or suggestions by the author that this compilation contains fiction. I will suggest two reference books. The first one by a former Republican congressman, Paul Findley.Who wrote a nine weeks best seller tittled, They Dare To Speak Out. The second one titled, The Zionist Connections by Alfred Lilienthal,whom is of the Jewish faith.
