As Sun Tzu wrote "All war is based on deception", and having us believe that Mossad "make war through deception" is a perfect example of this. Mossad's former motto can be translated with softer words as. "For by wise counsel thou shalt wage thy war," Proverbs XXIV,6

As Sun Tzu wrote "All war is based on deception", and having us believe that Mossad "make war through deception" is a perfect example of this. "For by wise counsel thou shalt wage thy war," Proverbs XXIV,6. The motto was changed recently as part of the Mossad's public 'coming out' to another Proverbs passage: "Where no counsel is, the people fall, but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

The # 1 New York Times best seller the Israeli foreign intelligence agency The Mossad tried to ban. The making of a Mossad officer is the true story of an officer in Israel's most secret agency. 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.

It's incredible that Victor Ostrovsky's memoir of life inside one of the most secretive intelligence agencies on earth is still eminently readable and selling well since it was first published in 1990. Kindle and paperback versions are still available via Ostrovsky's own small press publishing house. Having read several books about the Mossad, I was looking for something different. I heard of Ostrovsky via YouTube -- where a treasure trove of Ostrovsky interviews and speeches can be found on subjects ranging from Israeli national security to intelligence operations to post-911 counter-terrorism (for many years he was the go-to man for news agencies looking for a Mossad insider). I found his books and discovered Ostrovsky's work is certainly different. Because unlike other memoirs by former Mossad agents, "By Way of Deception" is the personal narrative of a disgruntled former katsa (case officer), one who left the service under a cloud, with bones to pick and unafraid to name names. For a variety of reasons, some alarming, others somewhat self-serving, Ostrovsky fell out with his employer and eventually left Israel for the life of a writer and artist in Arizona USA. I won't spoil the reader by trying to explain all the whys because I think people should read his book. Besides being a memoir, Ostrovsky shares organizational and supposed tradecraft secrets that one assumes must have been highly classified at the time of publication (unless his entire publishing career is just a huge disinformation campaign -- a real possibility!). He also shares some conspiratorial concepts about secret intelligence agencies that will be familiar to readers of Victor Suvorov (KGB/GRU), Lev Timofeyev (KGB), Fletcher Prouty (CIA), David Talbot (CIA) and others worth comparing with. Ostrovsky is a decent non-fiction memoirist but having read his fiction before (several self-published novels; not very well written) I assume Claire Hoy did the heavy lifting to make this the fast-moving and fascinating read that it is. But it's Ostrovsky's book nonetheless. In fact, Ostrovsky followed this up with a sequel, The Other Side of Deception, that I hope to read soon. I know a little about intelligence myself and have spent some time in Israel so this book was right up my alley. But it's so well-written that even newcomers to these subjects will find it enjoyable. But be warned. His revelations are messy, disturbing and he is undoubtedly biased. But this book is still recommended. Highly.

If you don't like all the political mumbo jumbo of a spy book but like the actual art of spying then this one's for you. The first hand accounts of the espionage, sabotage and assassinations ultimately ordered by the prime minister puts you right in the thick of it as if you were actually there watching the case officers and recruited agents yourself. I enjoyed reading the first hand accounts in the book "Blowing my cover my life as a CIA spy" by Moran and I am enjoying this read about the first hand accounts of the mossad. Victor Ostrovsky keeps the book interesting and accounts for his memory as best as possible. I like his writing style it's not boring.

Great insite into a very cloudy organization. One often wonders what is fiction and what is truth when people write tell all books. I would say if only half of this is true he worked for a fascinating group. After reading you will wonder if the tail is wagging the dog or the other way around.
I think anyone who enjoys reading about these organizations will enjoy the book.

Very interesting read, could not put it down. However not a literary masterpiece. One chapters was so full of details I got lost and did not understand what the Mosad operation had been about.

Kindle edition has lots of errors, seems like it's scanned in from paper edition and not checked. Even the very first word in the book is misspelled.

Much history on the Mossad is written by enthusiastic supporters so this is a good balance to those. Although bare in mind the author is a defector and holds a serious grudge so he is not so balanced himself.

I read this book with a grain of salt. Readers should be aware the author states that parts of the book are false. As to which parts, you'll have to decide for yourself. What impressed me most about this book was the description of the training that goes into becoming a mossad agent. I had no idea how much training was required. A very small percentage graduate to becoming a mossad agent and sometimes, entire classes fail to graduate.

The insight into the various mossad missions was also very interesting.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in the mossad.

It's one of the very few inside views of the Mossad (Hebrew for "institute"). While the Mossad occasionally screws up, mostly they're lethal to Israel's enemies. How they do it is of intimate interest to me. It's interesting that the author apparently "said too much" and is on the run from the Mossad. Either THAT is a piece of Mossad disinformation, or this is a pretty high-fidelity look inside the Mossad.

This book about Israeli intelligence agency the Mossad, is an interesting read. I wonder how much is true and what is false. Ill- regardless, the book has a good story and holds your attention. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it. Some of the facts may be true, plus you get an insight into the inner working of the Mossad. Either way, I wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of the Mossad.
This is not a glowing description about an Israeli exploit. Other people have written about that.

He talks about his life as a spy and what that meant for him. He talks about why he decided to retire. What is important is the global view the Israeli's have of the world. It is not black or white as the politicians would like us believe. It is grey and complex.
