Raffi Eytan, the Israeli agent who led Eichman’s capture, is dead

A longstanding Israeli intelligence agent, Raffi Eytan died on Saturday aged 92. A veteran of the Mossad intelligence agency and the Shin Bet security service, Raffi Eytan led a number of notable exploits, his most famous feat being the capture of the Nazi Adolf Eichman in Argentina in 1960 and bringing him to trial in Israel. He was less successful as the handler of Jonathan Pollard, who was blown, tried in the US and sentenced to life in prison. Eytan, who later became a successful business entrepreneur , tried for years to found out who betrayed Pollard.

    Nasrallah would be a good catch for now.
    Let us hope one day the long hand of Mossad taps on his shoulder and a funny voice says “Tag, you’re it !”

    G-d Bless the Mossad and its soldiers like Raffi Eytan who proved that the Jewish people are finally able to defend themselves and bring fascists to Justice.

      You mean line Begin and Betar? Days numbered, superman.

      seed of man and seed of beasts:
      The good and the foolish of them, I will sow all of them to be My seed. Seed of man and seed of beasts. Jonathan renders. I will set them up, like people, and I will make them succeed like a beast, whose iniquities are not visited upon her.
