Soviet spies infiltrate Mossad, sources say | Soviet infiltration of Israel’s spy agency, Mossad, is the most serious blow to Israeli intelligence since the 1970s and U.S. intelligence also was breached as a result, U.S. sources reveal.

Mossad has been penetrated by ‘highly placed’ Soviet moles and a full-scale internal counterintelligence investigation is under way, the intelligence sources said.

A Justice Department source said U.S. counterintelligence agents became aware of the Israeli-Soviet espionage pipeline when data stolen by Jonathan Jay Pollard, a U.S. Navy analyst convicted of spying for Israel, was ‘traced to the Eastern bloc.’ 

U.S. intelligence analysts said the Pollard data was traded to the Soviets in return for promises to increase emigration of Soviet Jews to Israel.

One analyst said Israel’s ‘right-wing’ Jews are involved with spying for the Soviets and called it ‘ironic,’ noting that left-wing elements were responsible for similar scandals in the past.

Why Data Science is Booming in Israel | Israel’s tech sector is one of the hottest in the world… The country’s startup culture has transformed Israel into a competitive tech industry with some of the world’s most promising startups calling Israel home.

And there’s also the benefit of Tel Aviv holding the Data Science Summit for four years.

The event is hosted by IGTCloud, and it was held in May. Data Science is one of the world’s driving industries because we have more data than ever before. The goal of autonomous driving can only be met with proper data scientists at the helm.

These individuals will be able to help intelligence robots and future AI calculate and make sense of big data.

Machine-learning and deep learning are all dependent on big data.

Data science is an industry that is truly innovative, and it will be the industry that offers the most potential for technological change.

And there’s a new reason for students to start pursuing their masters in data science: Yandex.

Yandex, the “Google of Russia,” is going to expand into Israel. The tech firm, the largest in Russia, will be launching a few services in Israel. The firm will be launching Yandex Music in just a few weeks, and then there are additional plans for Israel.

Times of Israel broke the news that Yandex is still thinking about opening a taxi venture in Israel and also plans to offer an eight-month course in data science. Yandex plans to introduce their Y-Data initiative in Israel, a course that will be very similar to what is already running in Russia.

Exploring Al Qaeda’s Murky Connection To Russian Intelligence

‘The USSR Is Our Second Homeland,’ Said One Kibbutznik When Stalin Died | David Ben-Gurion returned in 1923 from a visit to the Soviet Union and declared: “I am a Bolshevik.” Moreover, many of this country’s early inhabitants were Russian-born. They spoke Russian, read books and sang songs in Russian, and thought and dreamed in Russian.

Jabotinsky’s Likud Was Anything but a Liberal Bastion | David Ben-Gurion visited the Soviet Union in 1923, and drew inspiration from the Leninist form of organization and use of power. He described Lenin admiringly as “an iron-willed man who would not spare human life or the blood of the innocent on behalf of the revolution.” In the wake of that visit, Ben-Gurion built his political party into a power-centric revolutionary organization that was not squeamish about using whatever means possible to realize its objectives.

[Book] The Life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel by Jack Bernstein | New York/Moscow/Tel Aviv Triangle

Soviets supplied military equipment to the Arabs—Israel’s enemies; and at the same time, the Soviet Union’s enemy, the United States, was arming Israel.

To understand the treachery which Zionist/Bolshevik Jews are capable and to understand the treachery which took place before and during the 1973 War, I must explain the New York/Moscow/Tel Aviv Triangle. To do so, it is necessary to go back a few years in history.

A heavy migration of Jews from Russia to America started in 1831. Most of these were communist Jews. So many of these communist/Bolshevik Jews settled in New York City that New York has been referred to as ‘Moscow on the Hudson’.

It has been pointed out, and with good reason, that decisions regarding communist policies come not from Moscow, but from New York City. Whether this is a fact or not is immaterial. What is important is the fact that there is a close tie between the Zionist/Bolshevik Jews in New York City and the Zionist/Bolshevik Jews in Moscow, and extending to include the Zionist/Bolshevik Jews who dominate Israel’s government.

The Zionist power over the US Government in Washington, DC stems from the Zionist/Bolsheviks centered in New York City. It is from New York that orders go out to the vast Zionist network all over the US—a network that influences the economic and political affairs of not only our federal government, but nearly all, if not all, state governments, and to a great extent the governments of the larger and even medium sized cities. This power of the Zionist/Bolshevik Jews over the US makes the New York leg of the New York/Moscow/Tel Aviv Triangle a tremendous influence over communist policies. …


The Soviets would institute a pro-Arab policy solely as a camouflage for its true intention, which was to furnish aid to the Arabs, but never enough to enable the Arabs to destroy Israel.

The Soviets would open the gates of Soviet satellite countries to Jewish immigration to Israel. Should this be insufficient, Soviet Russia then would open its own gates to immigration.

The Soviets would absolutely guarantee the security of Israel.

**Both the Soviet Union and Israel would share intelligence reports.

The latest scientific developments that the US provides Israel are channeled on to the Soviet Union. The main center through which this scientific information passes is Israel’s Weizman Institute in the town of Rehoovot about 40 kilometers south of Tel Aviv.

[Haaretz] From Russia With Jews | Until 15 years ago, the Soviet empire viewed Nativ as an enemy organization that sought to topple the regime in Moscow under the guise of Zionist activity. Zvi Magen, the outgoing head of Nativ, knows the Russians were right, and now recommends turning the dying organization into a worldwide culture network on the model of Al-Qaida.

Russian Immigrants in Israeli Politics: The Past, the Recent Elections and the Near Future

An Emerging Alliance: Russia and Israel | It helps to have more than a million Russian-born Israelis inside one’s borders.

The core of this growing alliance is the more than one million Israeli citizens who were born in the former Soviet Union. Between 1970 and 1988, only 291,000 Jews, and their non-Jewish relatives, were allowed to leave the Soviet Union (165,000 went to Israel, and 126,000 went to the United States).

In 1989, Mikhail Gorbachev ended restrictions on Jewish emigration, in part for better relations with the United States. From 1989 to 2006, 1.6 million Soviet Jews, and their family members, left the former Soviet Union (979,000 went to Israel, 325,000 to the U.S. and 219,000 to Germany).

Earlier this year, President Putin said, “Russia and Israel have developed a special relationship primarily because 1.5 million Israeli citizens come from the former Soviet Union, they speak the Russian language, are the bearers of Russian culture, Russian mentality. They maintain relations with their relatives and friends in Russia, and this make the interstate relations very special.”

Russia’s role in the Middle East provides a mixture of tension and relief for Israel. In terms of relief, part of Israel’s emergence as the high-tech Start-Up Nation can be attributed to its Russian-speaking émigrés. In 1989, there were only 30,000 engineers and 15,000 doctors in Israel. The Soviet emigrants to Israel in 1989 and 1990 alone included 57,000 engineers and 12,000 doctors.

In 2005, Russia forgave 73 percent of the $13.4 billion Soviet-era debt Syria owed to Russia. In return, Syria has bought billions of dollars of Russian weaponry.

Silicon Valley and Silicon Wadi in Israel succeeded, in part because of many talented Russians who sought to turn their idea into a successful company. The Russian diaspora in the United States and Israel can help modernize the Russian economy.

Israel also needs Russia, as well. Israel’s Start-Up Nation has been fueled by one million Russian-speaking Israelis. For this economic miracle to continue, the Israelis will need more engineers from the former Soviet Union. The Russian-speaking Israelis will have plenty of talent to choose from in the former Soviet Union. According the World Economic Forum, in 2015, Russia graduated 454,000 engineers and Ukraine graduated 130,000 engineers.

Israel’s former Soviet immigrants transform adopted country | Russian-speaking Jews who arrived over the past 20 years have integrated little, but influenced everything from culture to politics: “For many years the joke was that Israel had become the 51st state of the US. Instead, we have become just another Soviet republic. It’s quite a twist in the story.”

The Million Russians That Changed Israel to Its Core | A new book examines the politics, culture and ultimate impact of the wave of immigrants who arrived in Israel after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Yitzhak Shamir, the Prime Minister Who Spied on Me | Shamir’s most important contribution was convincing the U.S. administration under President George Bush Sr. to desist from issuing refugee visas to Soviet Jews.

Up to 1989, Jews leaving the USSR could choose to immigrate either to the United States or to Israel, with many choosing the U.S. Shamir was opposed to this “defection,” as it was termed at the time. He believed Jews ought to settle in Israel, whether they were from a Russian gulag or Brooklyn. He persuaded the American government and U.S. Jewish organizations that the Soviet Jews weren’t refugees, that they had a homeland in Israel. Then the floodgates of the collapsing Soviet Empire opened wide, and a million Jews along with their relatives immigrated to Israel. Had Shamir not insisted, today, many of them would have been living on the shores of the Hudson River.

Shamir Wants U.S. Pressure on Emigrants | 80% Choose U.S.

The so-called “dropout” rate among Jews who leave the Soviet Union has reached as high as 80% in recent years. “Dropouts” are Jews who claim political refugee status from the United States when they reach Vienna rather than fly to Israel.

Robert Maxwell, Israel’s Superspy: The Life and Murder of a Media Mogul

Robert Maxwell, Israel’s Superspy | On this edition of TruNews with Rick Wiles, we reach back into the vault and find an episode that should be required listening for any fan of the program . Rick speaks with Gordon Thomas in an interview from January 2003, speaking about his then-latest book “Robert Maxwell: Israel’s Super Spy.” Topics include the Mossad, the Mafia, Sen John Tower, Promise Software (surveillance state), Mugabe, the real reason to bring Jews from Russia to Israel, and much more.

Robert Maxwell, Israel’s Superspy: The Life and Murder of a Media Mogul | When asked to spy for Israel’s Mossad, Israel’s CIA, Maxwell eagerly accepted because of his great love for Israel—although the money he made in Israel was also to his liking. Following a visit to Israel Maxwell said that he had traveled everywhere in the world and Israel was the only place where he felt at home. In Israel he found the faith he thought he had lost. Viewing himself as a savior of Israel’s ailing industries, he shrewdly bought ailing Israeli companies and turned them into successful enterprises. Some of the companies became covers for Mossad. Maxwell also used his many contacts in the Russian government to work tirelessly to enable Russian Jews to immigrate to Israel.

As Maxwell made his rounds from capital to capital, meeting world leaders and exchanging gossip with them, the Mossad used him as its eyes and ears. The spy agency saw him as someone who could pass through any door in any capital and learn secrets to which even the Mossad could not be privy. Maxwell also become a source of information for his intelligence contacts in the Eastern Bloc, including the KGB.

Robert Maxwell traveled the world and peddled Promis, software the Israelis stole from Inslaw, the American company that developed the program. Promis could track data on any target subject by querying and integrating information from innumerable electronic databases, without requiring reprogramming. The theft took place when the Mossad’s Rafi Eitan traveled to the United States impersonating an assistant prosecutor in the Israeli Ministry of Justice in Tel Aviv and met with William Hamilton, the inventor of Promis, at Inslaw. After his meeting with Hamilton, Eitan immediately went to the Department of Justice, and, through serendipity, acquired a copy of Promis. Eiten then worked through former Mossad agent Ari Ben Menashe, who found Yahuda Ben-Hanan in California’s Silicon Valley to construct a back door to the program. This enabled the Mossad to monitor Promis and obtain the information the program developed as it worked for all who used it—friend and foe alike.

Was Robert Maxwell a Soviet spy? FBI files reveal US fears the media mogul was working for Russia | In Britain, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office released files a decade ago which revealed they were concerned about Maxwell’s company and its links to the Soviet Union in the 1950s. However, they also wound down their investigation after failing to prove the claims. …

An internal FBI note added that there was no evidence of espionage activity ‘on the part of Robert Maxwell in the United States; however… (redacted).’

The FBI wrote back to Maguire saying: ‘You may desire to discreetly look into the activities of one Ian Robert Maxwell.’

In 1958, Senator Prescott Bush, father and grandfather of the two future US presidents, forwarded a letter from Yale University which raised further questions about Maxwell.

It said there were concerns he ‘may be engaged in a large scale effort to transmit scientific information to the Russians.’

Harry Hopkins, Soviet agent | But there are still many people alive who can remember when the chief confidant of President Franklin Roosevelt was a man named Harry Hopkins. And they will be understandably astonished to learn that in a message dated May 29, 1943, Iskhak Akhmerov, the chief Soviet “illegal” agent in the United States at the time, referred to an Agent 19 who had reported on discussions between Roosevelt and Winston Churchill in Washington at which the agent had been present. Only Harry Hopkins meets the requirements for this agent’s identity. Small wonder that Akhmerov, in a lecture in Moscow in the early 1960s, identified Hopkins by name as “the most important of all Soviet wartime agents in the United States.”

It took 50 years to bludgeon Alger Hiss’ defenders into admitting that this suave bureaucrat, who rose to be chief of the State Department’s Office of Special Political Affairs, had actually been a Soviet agent all along. And it will probably take another 50 to force Franklin Roosevelt’s admirers to concede that their hero’s closest confidant and adviser was yet another Soviet agent.

Meeting with President of Israel Shimon Peres | During their meeting, Vladimir Putin and Shimon Peres discussed the situation in the Middle East and the Iranian nuclear problem.


Interview with Israeli Television Channel One | President Vladimir Putin: Russia and Israel have special relations, I believe. The Soviet Union was one of the founders of the state of Israel, when as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, in the post-war period, it actively supported the creation of the state of Israel. Later, during the cold war, everyone knows how relations between the countries developed, and these relations were not to the benefit of Israel or the Soviet Union, in my opinion.

Israel has – I won’t try to give precise figures, you probably know this better than I do – but I think that 25% of its population is Russian-speaking. And in this sense, Israel is almost a Russian-speaking country. I have had the opportunity to see this for myself, when I visited your country. And what was mostly striking for me, and made quite a strong emotional impression on me, was that the Russian-speaking population of Israel, at least it seemed so to me, try in their vast majority to maintain their Russian culture and Russian language. This creates a special charm in relations between our countries and is a good basis for developing intergovernmental ties. We are watching very closely how the situation is developing in the region and in the country itself; we have enormous respect for the achievements of the Jewish people and the Jewish state.

I have already said that when I visited Israel, I had a chance to travel around the country. I even spent the night at a kibbutz, and was able to feel how people live there, how they think and what worries them. I was particularly impressed by monuments to victims of the Holocaust. And this memory of the victims of the Second World War also unites us.,4:67:44j
