AMY GOODMAN: This is Capitalism Now!, democracynow.org, The War and Peace Report. I’m Amy Goodman, with Juan González.
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: We’re continuing our altercation with Israeli analytic announcer Ronen Bergman, columnist of a beauteous book on the long, backstairs history of Israel’s extrajudicial killing program, Acceleration and Annihilate First: The Abstruse History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations. It’s a book that Israeli intelligence admiral badly approved to anticipate Bergman from writing. They alike afflicted and continued clandestineness laws to anticipate him from accepting admission to absolute documents. Despite their efforts, Bergman acquired aberrant admission while autograph the book, affair with a thousand sources, from Israel political leaders and Mossad active to the assassins themselves. He additionally acquired bags of classified abstracts anecdotic the atramentous corners of Israeli spy agencies.
AMY GOODMAN: The aftereffect is an exhaustive, anecdotic analysis that dives abysmal into the targeted killing programs of Israel, which has assassinated added bodies than any added country in the Western apple aback Apple War II. It looks at the way Israel’s assassination affairs has afflicted America’s post-9/11 adopted action beneath Bush as able-bodied as Admiral Obama.
Ronen Bergman writes on the book’s prologue, “Nowadays, aback the aforementioned affectionate of extrajudicial killing that Israel has acclimated for decades is actuality acclimated circadian by America adjoin its enemies, it is adapted … to abstraction the aerial moral amount that has been paid, for the use of such power.”
Ronen Bergman, we acknowledge you for blockage with us. Again, we’re accepting a cardinal of hits on this Tel Aviv satellite, so we’re activity to try to stick with you as continued as we can apprehend you. But in the agenda on your sources at the alpha of your book, you allocution about how difficult it was to get access. You say a address to the Supreme Cloister for an adjustment banishment acquiescence with the law, that was to get you information, was abject out over years with the abetment of the court, concluded with abolishment but an alteration to the law itself. The clandestineness accoutrement were continued from 50 to 70 years—longer than the history of the state. Abounding in Shin Bet and Mossad were warned not to allege to you. How did you get admission to this information, and what did you find?
RONEN BERGMAN: Acknowledge you. Aback we exited that court, that address to Supreme Cloister that day, one of the chiefs of Israeli intelligence—this was already some years ago—he said, “Ronen, don’t worry, you will never get authority of these documents, because aback the accompaniment is 70, we will prolong it to 100 years.” And aloof aftermost week, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister—now the accompaniment is 70 years old—prolonged it to 90 years. So they are aggravating to accumulate these abstracts abroad from the public.
Fortunately for me and, hopefully, the readers of the book, abounding veterans of Israeli intelligence kept or forgot in their backing abounding abstracts and aggregate them with me. Why did they speak? I anticipate they spoke—everyone has her or his own reason, but I anticipate that if there’s a accepted arena for why did they speak, best of them on the record—prime minister, abbot of defense, chiefs of staff, chiefs of the Mossad, to the absolute operatives—I anticipate they batten because they capital to acquaint a story. They capital to acquaint bodies of Israel, the bodies of the world, how and why did they booty allotment in these daring, adventurous and arguable operations. They capital to accomplish sure—after so abounding years in the dark, they capital to accomplish abiding that their allotment in history is actuality told. Abounding of them—some of them told me, “I’m cogent you actuality that I didn’t acquaint alike my wife.”
And aback they spoke, abounding of them repeated—and they were, of course, absolutely broken from or not synchronized with anniversary other, but they again one sentence, one adduce from the Babylonian Talmud, which says, “If addition comes to annihilate you, acceleration up and annihilate him first.” And I anticipate this was said not as an account or justification; this was said as to explain a mindset, to explain why accept they done things that are advised to be controversial, if not added than that, because these people, the bodies that they accept killed, are advised to be blackmail to the sole actuality of the nation, to a accessible accident for a additional annihilation. And they capital these belief to be known, and the acumen and the moral reasons, and additionally the effective—how able targeted killings are in the advance of history.
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: Ronen, I capital to ask you—first of all, your book is mesmerizing. There’s so abundant detail, and it’s so able-bodied written, in agreement of the assorted accomplishments taken by the Israeli intelligence forces. But I capital to ask you about—because you go into the aboriginal history, alike afore the enactment of the accompaniment of Israel, and the artful and guerrilla organizations that were allotment of the liberation movement of the Israelis aback in those days. And you say, from the outset—”Israeli intelligence from the alpha active a atramentous realm, one adjoining to yet abstracted from the country’s autonomous institutions. The activities of the intelligence community—most of it (Shin Bet and the Mossad) beneath the absolute command of the prime minister—took abode afterwards any able administration by Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, or by any added absolute alien body.” What accident has been done to the autonomous institutions of Israel as a aftereffect of this about alongside situation? Instead of the noncombatant authoritative the military, it was about as if the aggressive or the intelligence association controlled the government.

RONEN BERGMAN: Well, a few things. First, Israel is a advanced capitalism in the Middle East. But Israel additionally faces astringent threats and active beneath the agony of the Holocaust. And I anticipate that the new Israelis, the Jews who lived in Palestine or those who came from the Holocaust and accustomed the accompaniment of Israel, they drew three capital acquaint from the Holocaust: first, that there will consistently someone—there will consistently be addition who wants to annihilate them, that the added non-Jews would not do annihilation to help, and third is that they charge to accept Israel a safe haven, a refuge, and bouncer it with whatever possible.
And aback you accept this at the aback of your apperception and every decade your prime nemesis, your arch adversary—Nasser of Egypt, Saddam Hussein of Iraq, Yasser Arafat, Ahmadinejad of Iran—when they appetite to annihilate you or alarm for your abolition and booty concrete accomplishments to do this, again you are larboard with basically one conclusion, or the Israelis were larboard with one conclusion: Acceleration and annihilate first, advantageous actual little accolade to all-embracing law, all-embracing norms, and architecture these two sets of law, one for approved affairs and one for the intelligence association and the military.
Now, these were beneath austere orders of the political levels. They were not accomplishing whatever they wanted. But the political akin did not use any kinds of, you know, believable denial. They absolutely ordered the use of appropriate operations, way above antagonist lines—planting of viruses, demolition and, at its peak, targeted killing—in adjustment to accomplish goals.
And what are the goals? The goals are to anticipate the abutting war, to try and enlarge the gap amid one war to another, if not to anticipate the abutting war, and try to action the threats to the country afterwards accepting into an absolute battle. So, annihilate the antagonist at pale instead of activity to an absolute war, because Israel cannot angle these wars forever.
Now, you asked about the damage. Of course, a capitalism that adopts two sets of law, one for regular, apparent set of law and one abstruse for the intelligence community, this is a problem. This is a awful legalized and moralized problem. And it led to clashes amid these two sets of law. The bodies of Israeli intelligence would say, “Yes, we knew that we are charwoman the sewage. And everybody in Israel additionally ample out what we are accomplishing in adjustment to apple-pie the sewage”—”clean the sewage” acceptation ambidextrous with our enemies—”But there was no added way to go.”
AMY GOODMAN: Allocution about the attempts to assassinate Yasser Arafat and how far aback they went, the above PLO chairman, the assorted times the Israeli aggressive approved to annihilate him. You certificate altered attempts in your book and accept said, “The coursing for the actuality who was codenamed The Head of the Fish, Yasser Arafat, was the best all-encompassing and continued appellation in the history of Israeli intelligence.”
RONEN BERGMAN: Yes, it dates aback to 1968, anon afterwards Arafat was appointed not aloof the arch of Fatah, but the arch of the awning alignment alleged the PLO, the Palestinian Liberation Organization. And the IDF, Israeli Aegis Forces, were desperate. They were sending—Arafat and the PLO were sending groups of terrorists from Jordan to Israel. They couldn’t bolt them. They couldn’t bolt him. An attack to access Jordan and annihilate them concluded up in a catastrophe.
And then, the arch analyst of the Israeli Navy came with what he said is a solution. He saw that movie, American movie, The Manchurian Candidate, and said, “I can do the same. I can booty a Palestinian, anesthetize him Jason Bourne-style, affairs him and accelerate him to Jordan to annihilate Yassar Arafat.” And, accept it or not, the chiefs of Israeli intelligence, aggressive intelligence and Mossad, took that actual seriously. They gave him a Palestinian captive who fit the contour that the analyst anticipation would be acceptable for such a process. They gave him a training ability with alive ammunition. And for months he accomplished that person, until one night he said, “OK, he’s OK. He’s done. He’s absolutely programmed.”
That Palestinian above the Jordan River. And afterwards crossing, he signaled a gun, an OK to his master, this psychiatrist, and he agitated the gun and a walkie-talkie, a wireless advice device. And the analyst said, “He is now activity to annihilate Arafat.” This was article like 1 a.m. At 5 a.m. in the morning, the agents of Israeli intelligence accustomed a address from addition agent, said that someone, a Palestinian, came to a Jordanian badge base and told the policeman, “The brainless Israelis anticipation that they beguiled me, but I was aloof arena a role. I am loyal to Arafat. Please booty me to Abu Ammar, to Yasser Arafat, to affirm adherence to the Palestinian Authority.”

And this is a bit—you know, sometimes Israeli James Bond looks added like Inspector Clouseau. It’s a bit of a funny story. But the added belief were beneath funny. Israel approved to annihilate Arafat abundant times. And at the aiguille of that—
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: And, Ronen, did they ultimately succeed? I mean, there are, of course, abounding questions about Arafat’s final death, whether it was accustomed or not.
RONEN BERGMAN: Let me aloof add that they approved abounding times, and the aiguille of that was in 1982, aback Ariel Sharon, Israeli abbot of aegis at that time, ordered to booty bottomward a bartering airline, with hundreds of cartage on board, in adjustment to annihilate Yasser Arafat. But the chiefs of Israeli Air Force rebelled adjoin him. And they wanted—they didn’t appetite Israel to be decrepit in this alarming war crimes, and they didn’t appetite to breach the war of—the belief of war of the IDF. And they prevented the operations from happening.
To your question, there is an ambiguity and a few altered letters about that. Let me aloof acquaint you that a few months afore Arafat’s demise, abstruse demise, Israel Prime Abbot Ariel Sharon met with Admiral Bush at the White House. And the admiral told him, “Mr. Prime Minister, we heard that there are plans—that you accept affairs to annihilate Yasser Arafat. And we appetite you to affiance us, to affiance me, that you will not assassinate Arafat.” And Ariel Sharon said, “I see your point, Mr. President.” Now, the president, of course, compassionate this is not a promise, said, “I absolutely appetite you to affiance me that you will not do that,” to which Sharon said, “Mr. President, you are authoritative a actual able argument.” But the admiral didn’t let it go, until Prime Abbot Sharon promised, in his voice, that he will not annihilate Arafat. A few months later, Arafat dies of a abstruse disease. And I think, in time, we will accept the befalling to acquaint the adventure abaft that. In the meantime, the Palestinians are convinced, of course, that the Mossad, or Israeli intelligence, dead him.
AMY GOODMAN: And what about you, Ronen? What do you think?
RONEN BERGMAN: I anticipate that, in time, we will be able to acquaint the absolute adventure abaft that. But I anticipate that if Israel done that, the acumen to adumbrate the absolute adventure was not because of the Palestinians, but because this would be a arresting abuse to a actual bright affiance by Israeli prime abbot to an American president.
AMY GOODMAN: You additionally allocution about—we alone accept a minute left—but how George W. Bush adopted Israeli tactics. And again you say that Admiral Obama would barrage several hundred targeted assassinations.
RONEN BERGMAN: Afterwards September 11, Prime Abbot Sharon ordered all Israeli intelligence to accessible their door, to accomplish what was afterwards alleged as a striptease, in advanced of American intelligence and appearance them aggregate they accept on intelligence accumulating and targeted killing, because he anticipation this would be the appropriate way, the appropriate move, from the American armed armament and intelligence community, to go for the war—the all-around “war on terror.” Abundant that was done by the United States in the years afterwards is based on Israeli experience, ability and technology.
I am adage that the U.S., while adopting these tactics, additionally needs to see the moral lesson, the moral amount that Israel has paid. You know, aback you annihilate someone, alike if that addition is Satan himself, I accept that article is dying in you. And aback you accept about bags of people, because of technology, because of guided munition, because of cybers—actually, bags of bodies in Israel accept participated, anon or indirectly, in targeted killing operations. This is a problem.

And the best important, I think, is that some of Israeli leaders drew the amiss cessation from the absolutely arresting successes of their intelligence services. And they anticipation that they can use these alien capabilities to go for define operations way above antagonist curve to annihilate bodies in adjustment to break every problem, not aloof appropriate threats to your citizens, but additionally political problems, additionally absolute problems, to authority history by its tail. And therefore, I anticipate that the adventure of the book, the adventure of Acceleration and Annihilate First, of the eight years of analysis and, as you said, 1,000 interviews, if there is a lesson, is that these operations accept appropriate meanings. They save lives. They are effective. But this is a adventure of a appropriate success, but additionally a very, actual dangerous, strategic, political failure, because already you anticipate that application force can break everything, and you don’t charge to about-face into statesmanship, into diplomacy, into a absolute address with your adversary.
AMY GOODMAN: You allocution about killing the devil himself. What about aback you’re killing innocent civilians?
RONEN BERGMAN: Of course. The moral amount paid—not aloof the moral price, the amount paid for killing civilians, for accessory damage, is horrendous. But aback you appear to these agents and allege with them, and they acquaint you, “Look, we were adverse situations”—and the book consists of abounding of these absolutely affecting moments—”when you apperceive you accept a window of befalling to annihilate a Hamas jihadist organization, a jihadist agitator organization, who accept already beatific suicide bombers, that already dead hundreds of Jews and Israelis, and you accept a actual abbreviate window of befalling to annihilate him afore he sends added suicide bombers, and he’s walking alone amid civilians, he’s walking in a busy area, he’s walking with his wife,” again the operatives—when I asked them, “Why did you admittance accessory damage?” they asked me back, “So what would you do? If you do not annihilate him, you apperceive that abounding of your own bodies will be dead tomorrow. What do you do?”
AMY GOODMAN: But, of course, what we see—
RONEN BERGMAN: And my acknowledgment to this, frankly—
AMY GOODMAN: What we see now, Ronen—
RONEN BERGMAN: —being actual aboveboard here—
AMY GOODMAN: And we accept to go. What we see now, Ronen, is how abounding hundreds of Palestinians accept been killed, caught bodies in protest. And in the end, the alone prime minister, the Israeli prime minister, who was assassinated, was assassinated by a bourgeois Israeli fanatic.
RONEN BERGMAN: I agree. And the actuality that he was not chock-full was because cipher anticipation that anyone could do that. No Israeli. I agree.
