Spies Against Armageddon -- Inside Israel´s Secret Wars:Updated & Revised Dan Raviv
From the earliest days of his dictatorship, Saddam Hussein had vowed to destroy Israel. So, when France sold Iraq a top-of-the-line nuclear reactor in 1975, the Israelis were justifiably concerned. The reactor formed the heart of a huge nuclear plant situated twelve miles from Baghdad, 1,100 kilometers from Tel Aviv. By 1981, the reactor was on the verge of becoming ´´hot,´´ and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin knew he would have to confront its deadly potential. He turned to Israeli Air Force commander General David Ivry to secretly plan a daring surgical air strike on the reactor, a never-before contemplated mission that would prove to be one of the most remarkable military operations of all time. Written with the full and exclusive cooperation of the Israeli Air Force high command, General Ivry (ret.), and all of the eight mission pilots (including Ilan Ramon, who became Israel´s first astronaut and tragically perished in the shuttle Columbia disaster), Raid On the Sun tells the extraordinary story of how Israel plotted the unthinkable: defying its U.S. and European allies to eliminate Iraq´s nuclear threat. In the tradition of Black Hawk Down, journalist Rodger Claire re-creates a gripping tale of personal sacrifice and survival, of young pilots who trained in America on the then-new, radically sophisticated F-16 fighter-bombers, then faced a nearly insurmountable challenge: how to fly the 1,000-plus-kilometer mission to Baghdad and back on one tank of fuel; he recounts Israeli intelligence´s incredible ´´black ops´´ to sabotage construction on the French reactor and eliminate Iraqi nuclear scientists; and he gives readers a pilot´s-eye view of the action on June 7, 1981, when the planes roared off a runway on the Sinai Peninsula for the first successful destruction of a nuclear reactor in history. 1.

The Randy Rabbit of Israel:The Real Meaning of the Song of Solomon Ivan Secret
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.´´ WINNER OF THE NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD IN HISTORY NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY JENNIFER SZALAI, THE NEW YORK TIMES NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Economist ? The New York Times Book Review ? BBC History Magazine ? Mother Jones ? Kirkus Reviews 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
