Military expertise seems to lead Israel’s defense professionals almost unavoidably to the prescriptions identified with the left, J.J. Goldberg writes.
As the commander of SS Special Forces, Otto Skorzeny thrilled Hitler with his exploits. Less than 20 years later, he committed murder for Israel. Now, based on new revelations, his full story can be told.
Meir Dagan, storied Israeli commando, general, spymaster and — in his final years — outspoken peacenik, is dead at 71.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has named his top national security adviser Yossi Cohen to head the secretive Mossad intelligence agency.
Benjamin Netanyahu is full of disdain for the nuclear deal with Iran, even though it’s packed with concessions. J.J. Goldberg asks why Israel’s leader finds it so hard to accept a big win.

A video posted online by Islamic State militants on Tuesday showed a boy killing Muhammad Musallam, an Israeli Arab accused by the group of having signed up as a jihadi to spy for Mossad, with a bullet to the head.
Islamic State said on Thursday it was holding an Israeli Arab who had posed as a foreign fighter in order to spy for Mossad, an account denied by Israel and by the man’s family, who said he had been kidnapped.
