Though Israel has a long list of its foreign Jew spy heroes, who stole sensitive military and political secrets from the countries they lived in and sold to enemy countries. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were the first US Jewish couple, who were executed in 1953 for being Russian spies - who stole nuclear secrets for Russia. Another famous Jewish spy is Jonathan Pollard who is serving life sentence since 1986 for stealing one million documents including sensitive intelligence about the USSR and Middle East for Israel. Interestingly, US Jewish Lobby and successive Israeli governments have been demanding pardon for Pollard – claiming that though he confessed his crime – but he committed those crimes for the “US ally”. A close friend of Former president Bill Clinton and current secretary of stste, Hillary Clinton, Mare Rich, is a Belgian-born Jew, who was a top Mossad operative in the US. He was pardoned by Clintons and now lives in Switzerland.
However, Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser’s son-in-law, Ashraf Marwan (b. 1944), an Egyptian intelligence officer, who has the distinction of being the only Muslim spy considered by Israel as its spy hero. After the death of Nasser, Ashraf Marwan PhD, held important government positions until he resigned and took residence in England in the 1970s as a billionaire. He was reported dead on June 27, 2007 as result of “a fall” from the window of his fifth floor flat in Carlton House Terrace, London. Though, the London police called it a “suicide” – Ashraf’s son Gamal Marwan and his close friends claimed he was murdered by the Mossad agents.
Interestingly, it’s not Ashraf Marwan alone, who committed “suicide” by jumping from the balcony. Two other Egyptian spies reportedly committed “suicide” earlier – famous actress Soaud Hosni (in June 2001) and General Leithy Nassif (in mid-1970s). All three were writing their memoirs and all committed “suicide” by jumping from their flats in London!!
Ira Rosen, producer of 60 Minutes TV show was reported by CBS on May 12, 2009 – quoted Israel’s former Mossad chief, Zvika Zamir, saying about Ashraf Marwan: “Marwan was not a double-agent. He was one of our loyal agents…..We had a peace with Arabs and he was not worth paying $100,000 for each meeting. what do you think he would give us, the Egyptian wheat reports?”
In September 2002 – It was former Israel Occupation Force (IOF) officer, now London-based author and journalist, Ahron Bregman PhD, who claimed tha Ashraf Marwan was a former Mossad’s Master Spy, who used to charge US$100,000 for each of his contact with Mossad officers including Zvi Zamir, the head of Mossad. In 2003, Howard Blum quoted General Eli Zeira, head of Israeli military intelligence during 1973 Yom Kippur War that Ashraf Marwan told Zvi Zamir that both Egypt and Syria were planning an attack on Israel.
Israel’s intelligence sources reported that it was Ashraf Marwan’s greed for money to maintain his high standard life-style and his love for beautiful women which pushed him to work for the Israelis. Israel is welknown for its Sexpionage agents activities – pimping young Jewish women to foreign dignatories for political blackmail. Several of former KGB’s Jewish sexpionage agents, who immigrated to Israel after the demise of USSR in 1990s – now work for Israel’s intelligence outfits. The Institute of Technology in Haifa is believed to be the training ground for such Jewish sexpionage agents. Some of these sexpionage agents who became famous include Monica Lewinsky (Bill Clinton affair), Chandra Levi (Congressman Gary Condit affair), Christine Keeler (John Dennis Profumo, British defense secretary, affair), and Golan Cipel (Governor McGreevey affair).
