The Freakish (and Fictional) Long Arm of the Mossad

There’s a concept in combat theory called the OODA loop – Observe, Orient, Decide, Act – that accounts for every decision made during a battle. One observes a situation, orients oneself to the circumstances, decides what to do, and acts accordingly. This presents a new situation and the cycle begins anew, thus forming the “loop.”

The great Chinese general Sun Tzu – whose book The Art of War is required reading in military theory, politics, and business – argued that disruption of the enemy was among the best ways to win a battle without even needing to fight or to make victory easier if combat became necessary. There is no better way to disrupt the enemy than to be “inside” his OODA loop; to impact his decision-making by creating confusion or false impressions.

There may be no greater example of being inside someone else’s OODA loop than the way the Arab and Muslim world reacts to the Mossad, Israel’s secret intelligence agency.

With the news this week that the Palestinian Authority has permitted the exhumation of Yasser Arafat’s body to see if he was actually poisoned – presumably the conspiracy would lead back to the Israelis – we have a new example of the propensity in the Arab and Muslim world to blame Israel for everything; even the death of a chronically ill 75 year-old man who, through his own choices, had lived a fairly difficult life. The specifics of how the Israelis killed him are both remarkably boneheaded and utterly unimportant. For conspiracy enthusiasts, the more outlandish theories only prove their own truth.

At first glance, you might think it’s a bad thing that Israel is blamed throughout the Arab and Muslim world every time an Iranian nuclear scientist is killed, a terrorist has an “accident,” or virtually anything suspicious happens. You might think it merely hilarious that the Saudi’s arrested a vulture tagged by an Israeli university for espionage merely because it had Hebrew writing on the tag. Think about it: they arrested a bird. For spying. You might think it’s just idiotic that an Egyptian cabinet minister theorized that a spate of shark attacks in the Red Sea were the work of Mossad agents trying to ruin Egypt’s tourism industry. Again, think about it: the Mossad trained sharks to attack non-Israeli tourists in Egyptian waters.

In the Arab and Muslim world, the Mossad gets blamed for everything. Electricity goes out? We can’t rule out the Mossad. Building collapses in the center of town? The Mossad is trying to kill us. “Dancing with the Stars” is a repeat? Curses! It’s the Mossad! It goes on and on.

On the negative side, of course, is that it’s pretty unlikely that you could ever achieve peaceful coexistence with an entity you believe to be so nefarious and omnipresent. It also says some unpleasant things about the cultures and basic intelligence of a lot of Israel’s enemies. But since none of Israel’s enemies cares about achieving peace or about developing a well-educated citizenry, those concerns are entirely Western.

For Israel, it makes it easier to win a war without having to fight it. If you believe the Israelis capable of training sharks to attack tourists – and to distinguish Israeli tourists from non-Israeli ones – what aren’t they capable of? How could you ever win a fight with such evil supergeniuses? Makes for a pretty strong deterrent, right?

Especially when those super-geniuses use a typical promotional balloon launch to poison Lebanese children. Sheesh. They can do anything.

    I PRAY TWICE A DAY FOR YISRAEL, THE PEOPLE, THE IDF, IAF, AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST…. THE MOSSAD.
    I HAVE ONLY 1 REGRET IS THAT I DIDN’T JOIN THE MOSSAD. TO SAY I LOVE THE MOSSAD IS AN UNDERSTATMENT!

    since the Jews followed cleanliness laws of the Jewish religion they were always thought to be witches by the europeans. the church promulgated this weird theory and other strange beliefs about Jews. instead of cleaning up their own act, not allowing very dirty animals in the house, washing their hands, and koshering their food prior to eating it, they just blamed the Jews for betwitching gentiles with our witchy ways. wash your hands, arabs, and you’ll stop hating Jews.

    It comes back to education, the only thing to dispel such superstition. But when you get teachers who aren’t even educated themselves…

    Thank you Heavenly Father for placing mother Israel & all fellow christian saints around the world in refuge . You have provided your wisdom to anoint intelligance with Mossad ! God has instructed the saints through the Book of Genesis 3: 11-13 that fingerpointing has been here since the days of Adam & Eve & that no one stood accountable for their actions, Todays Christians are asked not to repeat this mistake and always stand accountable for our own actions… Satans army does not do this, because they have a cowardly spirit & everytime their evil falls back on them its always our fault !

    I can relate to the plight of the Israelis and the Jewish people in general.Everyone is out to get me,the world is my enemy,being hated for being different even when one tries to blend in but can’t fit in and what’s weird is that I’m not even Jewish!But sounds like the Mossad is bigger than all the intelligence agencies world wide combined,maybe I should hire Mossad body guards and call them my guardian angels,I’d sleep better at night knowing I got round the clock protection!:)If their enemies are that afraid of them then the Mossad must be doing above and beyond an excellent job,God bless Israel,the Jewish people,and all who bless and support Israel.My God is an awesome God!:)

    Perhaps the very best intelligence agency in the world. They need to be. Imagine living in Texas and every State around you wants to exterminate every Texan? That’s the reality of being an Israeli

    It truly does sound as though Israel’s enemies have elevated Israel to the status of God! Wonder why they they continue to fight against Him and do not believe in Him for themselves!

        Sorry to say your country, America will set a political trap and betray Israel into agreeing to a Land for Peace Deal where Jerusalem will be divided. Your President will be driving that peace deal. This brings all her enemies to her door step which will end in a war where Israel will be defeated although she would put up one of the toughest fight for her survival. This is not Armageddon where God would fight on her behalf but a prelude. Two thirds of Israel will be cut-off and her people will once again be scattered. Pray for Israel.

Rabbi's Commentary
Coming Together for Freedom

Renewed rocket fire not only brought an end to the most recent ceasefire, it made clear once again that Hamas does not want peace with Israel – it wants the destruction of the Jewish state. Now is the time for the free world to unite and come together in the fight for freedom, peace, and civilization as we know it.
