Former Egyptian diplomat Rifaat al-ansari: My story in Tel-Aviv
Friday, 7 August 2015
This week’s guest is Doctor Rifaat al-Ansari, a former diplomat at the Egyptian embassy in Israel. He said the Mossad failed to recruit him as an agent via the “honey bee network”, i.e. seducing him using women, adding that the contrary happened as he infiltrated the Israeli society’s different categories. He also said Arabs aggrandize the worth of Israeli security apparatuses, adding that he managed to attain information about the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon before it was carried out and informed the Lebanese and Palestinians of it. He also said that he once met an Israeli pilot who under the influence of alcohol told him he participated in the attack on the Iraqi nuclear reactor.
