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.
Netanyahu’s last-minute outcry to save Israel from Arab votes arguably won him the election. But it opened a deep rift in society that will take ages to heal, J.J. Goldberg writes.
A new ad aims to counter the outpouring of opposition to Benjamin Netanyahu by retired military brass. J.J. Goldberg says it winds up highlighting just how serious the anti-Bibi effort is.
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.
The CIA and the Mossad collaborated in the 2008 assassination of Imad Mughniyeh, the top Hezbollah operations officer blamed for an array of terrorist attacks.
The Israeli Mossad intelligence agency has reportedly urged United States senators to vote against placing additional sanctions on Iran.
Shin Bet and the Mossad are embroiled in a heated dispute over their respective intelligence gathering responsibilities. Who’s supposed to keep an eye on Gaza?
Netanyahu is reported to be stalling the nomination of Israel’s next IDF chief. His reasons are a topic of hot speculation — but J.J. Goldberg says the facts speak for themselves.
