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
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'
