To our readers,
'IICC Perspectives' is a new platform of selected articles in English, translated from'Mabat-Malam' - the Israel Intelligence Heritage and Commemoration Center's quarterly journal.

As is only appropriate for the IICC, whose focus is on preserving and strengthening the legacy of the Israeli intelligence community, most of the articles in 'Mabat-Malam' analyze events in the history of Israeli intelligence, but some deal with current events. Most of them are written by retired members of the community and sometimes also by other guest contributors.

The journal does not have academic, or even semi-academic pretensions. We let each contributor tell his or her story, which to be published must meet the following criteria: the content is not personally offensive, it is reliable, interesting, professional and contains new material. The opinions expressed are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of IICC staff or its members.

We hope you find it interesting and await your comments here, at IICC email - [email protected]. We also hope you read future articles, as they appear.

Enjoy your reading,
Brig. Gen. (Ret.) Dr. Yossi Ben-Ari
Editor in chief, 'Mabat Malam'
