The Ben Zygier story, courtesy of the ABC

by ray goodlass

Much detail on the Ben Zygier case was revealed on the ABC’s ‘Foreign Correspondent’ program last night. Seems that in order establish his credentials as a Mossad agent to foreign interests (‘Hezbollah’?) he compromised a Mossad case and so committed suicide. What interests me is that the story broke here in Australia rather than Israel, and as far as I can tell, the only public investigations have been here, and by the media to boot. The Israeli government and its obsessive secrecy has a lot to answer for, especially as to how the way it and its agencies operate can drive an Australian citizen to suicide.  Enough said.
