Russian Israeli Kingmaker Awarded Spy Agency

Imagine that you have unlimited access to state institutions. You can open every document and interrogate every civil servant. Imagine that you have unlimited funds and time to do that. You have a platinum opportunity to catch red-handed the bad guys abusing the people. Yosef Shapira does not need to imagine that. He is the State Comptroller and spent considerable resources investigating Nativ (“Path”) in Hebrew. Despite his efforts, he failed to understand the current role of this former spying agency.

Reluctant Report

Even more mysterious were the reluctant report of the Comptroller findings by Hebrew media. His findings were explosive, yet, they were delegated to secondary items in larger articles.

His assessment of Nativ was published in January 2013. Hebrew media reported it within articles dedicated to the Comptroller finding deficiencies in the gas masks program.

"And I shall gather you, and I shall rescue you from all places"

“And I shall gather you, and I shall rescue you from all places”

The oddity was justified by the report on Nativ being old. It was published on October 2012 and kept secret until January. By then it was old news, it was half-hidden by media and subsequently ignored by the people.

Considering that this tiny organization may be the kingmaker, appointing its leader as the Israeli next Prime Minister, the careful attitude displayed by the media is understandable. Hebrew media is scared to death, especially after it lost a propaganda campaign in the style of American McCarthy against the current Foreign Affairs Ministry Avigdor Lieberman.

A probable reason for his good relations with Russian President Putin is that the latter is trying, as the Israeli Comptroller, to figure out what Nativ does.

Nativ’s Path

The scarce information about the organization is surprising considering its age; it was founded in 1953 by Prime Minister Sharet. Back then it was part of the secret services, but this ended after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. It is under direct control of the PM Bureau, as Mossad is.

Nativ worked covertly, making contacts, fostering Jewish education, and aiding immigration to Israel from the Soviet Union. After the Six-Day War, the USSR severed diplomatic relations with Israel and Nativ started its “Let My People Go!” campaign in the West.
Wrong Path

Nativ’s Wrong Path

Apparently, Nativ was involved also in more traditional information gathering activities.

In 1998, Russia disclosed that the previous year it had arrested a man who admitted giving details of a new battle tank to Nativ. Apparently, the data was used in the Merkava IV Tank. Earlier versions suffered of weak points on the top and bottom; that was the price that allowed the massive shield surrounding the vehicle.

The espionage event was a public reminder that Nativ still existed despite the USSR having been dismantled and Russians being free to emigrate to Israel.

In the 1990’s, over one million Russians flooded Israel. “Previet” replaced “shalom.”

Moldova Rules

By saying “Russians” I identify myself as what Russians would classify “an uneducated Middle-Easterner.” The immigrants came from various areas of the Red Empire. Moskva and Leningrad, Bukhara and Ukraine, Samarkand and Moldova. Red-slaves were finally united in Zion.

One of the immigrants most prominent leaders emerged from Moldova. Avigdor Lieberman, the second most famous corporal in military history, befriended Tzahi HaNegbi while both were students in Jerusalem’s Hebrew University. HaNegbi is Warring Family aristocracy; his path into Netanyahu’s Likud Party was assured. He dragged comrade Lieberman into the Zionist elite.

Lieberman learned the second oldest trade and then left Likud. His voters favored “previet” over “shalom,” thus staying in a party that he failed to understand even its name was useless. “Yisrael Beitenu” (Israel is Our Home) was born. The name fooled nobody; it was a Russian speaking party with extremist ideologies. Lieberman endorsed transfer ideology* several times.

His success was not to the liking of the Warring Family, which decided to entrap him. His tight hold on Nativ, even while outside the ministry saved him.

The scene seems to be taken from a John Le Carré book. The Israeli Ambassador to Belarus wanted to give valuable information to his Minister of Foreign Affairs. Aware of the surveillance, they couldn’t trust any place in Israel. Instead, they opted for a private meeting in a dark hotel room in Minsk.

Both of them having been born in Communist states, they did not trust even that remote location and kept talking nonsense. The ambassador had prepared a note with the message, and at a given moment he approached the minister and dropped the note in his hand, performing a safe-drop. In October 2008, the event seemed to end properly. On December 16, 2012, it led to Lieberman’s resignation ahead of the upcoming elections.
Avigdor Lieberman – Danny Ayalon

The complex saga was reported in McCarthyism Loses Israeli Battle: Lieberman Acquitted. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Danny Ayalon attempted a putsch against his boss—for the glory of the party, of course—and failed. He left politics and Lieberman returned to be a minister, after sweating a few months in the cold.

Ze’ev Ben Aryeh was the ambassador who had warned Lieberman, giving a good example of how this organization works. It always works from Israeli embassies. Its workers have diplomatic status but they are not under the jurisdiction of the ambassador. As Mossad personnel, they are independent members of the embassy, reporting directly to their employer. Unlike other State owned organizations, Nativ has a distinct cultural nature.

Nativ’s employees require two key characteristics. The most important is to speak Russian. The second is more ambiguous; it could be defined as being bureaucratic bulldozers. They must be able to deal efficiently with bureaucracies, easily piling up big towers of bureaucrats and throwing them into oblivion with one hand while munching a piece of cake with the other.

In other words, it is the Israeli-Russians private spy agency.

In recent years, the organization changed. Despite still being part of the PM Bureau, Netanyahu transferred its daily management to the Foreign Affairs Ministry. Netanyahu could not speak with most of its employees; he could not even decipher what were they doing.

Spasiba bolshoi, Bibi, Lieberman said. He received his own personal spying agency, and got the State to pay the salaries.

Lieberman’s Private Army

The Comptroller report on Nativ is odd. It describes an organization that despite being part of the State, it behaves independently and often against the interests of its owner.

Ariel University is the most problematic academic institution of Israel. Located in the West Bank (see Last Secular Settler Dies), it regularly reaches headlines and not due to its academic achievements. It is considered a stronghold of the Likud and has many Russian students. The main admission policy is to vote for right wing parties, all other issues are irrelevant. “You can’t read? Vote with the note with a font that looks like a flag. You are in. Next year you will be professor!”

The Comptroller found that Nativ gave funds to Ariel University and to immigrants studying there with whom it had connections. It also helped those who immigrated to Israel despite being considered non-Jews or with complications as to their status, in violation of the Return Law.

Nativ also spent funds on residents of countries with neither connection to Israel or the Jewish community nor any possible right to immigrate.

What was Lieberman funding there? The comptroller said that Nativ has cultural programs that raise the suspicion that they do not fulfill their designated purposes but were organized merely to obtain and spend more government funds. Some encourage and assist immigrants in living or moving to other places besides Israel.

Moreover, Nativ has not had to justify recent large increases in its budget in any organized way other than to identify programs in which it wishes to spend the funds. The organization operates redundant programs already being run by the Foreign and Absorption Ministries, and funds expensive foreign trips.

Shapira reminds that Nativ ignored reports of his predecessor in 1998 and 2007, summarizing that Nativ targets populations outside of its mandate, disregards directives on financial issues and transparency.

What do they do?

Following the publishing, an unidentified Foreign Affairs Ministry worker said to the media “For seven years, Nativ has had one aim: to maintain Lieberman’s political and personal ties in the Russian-speaking region and those of Yisrael Beitenu with its potential electorate.”

An unidentified Nativ member said “…is Lieberman’s plaything and continues to exist only due to his political influence and for his interests.”

Supporters of Nativ employ the usual Israeli phrasing. Secrecy is paramount, Nativ existence cannot be explained in public due to Israel’s relations with Russia. In order to maintain those relations and protect local Jewish communities, Israel needs a team of experienced and discreet operators.

Recently, a Pro-Russian Jewish Mayor Shot in Ukraine, was evacuated to Israel. Nativ is the leading candidate for having coordinated the event.

Bribe and theft, abusing power and reviving the Soviet tradition of politruk political officers, Lieberman is returning the favor to the Warring Family. He achieved unprecedented power over a key segment of the electorate after being awarded a Neo-KGB by the State. Can Comrade Lieberman defeat secular-Zionism and become the Israeli Prime Minister?

The day after, the Palestinian Exodus may begin flooding Jordan with a new tragedy. Shortly afterwards, the comrade form Yisrael Beiteinu will remember his original party. The Likud main ideologist, Ze’ev Jabotinsky, wrote in 1929:

Two Banks has the Jordan,
This is ours and,
That is as well

Walla! Neo-Stalin will exclaim, and order his newest tanks, empowered by Nativ, to cross the river eastwards.

Please Help—Persecuted by Israel, Maimed by Bolivia

Bolivia denies me my documents and is torturing me. I am being slowly killed. Please help me make this public.

* Rabbi Meir Kahane was an American-Israeli ultra-nationalist rabbi. Kahane founded both the Jewish Defense League (JDL) in the USA, and the Kach (roughly “This is the Way”), political party in Israel. In 1984, Kach gained one seat in parliamentary elections, and he became a member of the Knesset. In 1988, the Israeli government banned Kach as “racist” and “undemocratic” under the terms of an ad hoc law. In 1994, following the Cave of the Patriarchs massacre perpetrated by Baruch Goldstein, a Kahane follower, Kach was outlawed in Israel and the US State Department listed it as a terrorist organization. Kahane was assassinated in a Manhattan hotel by an Arab gunman in November 1990 after Kahane concluded a speech warning American Jews to emigrate to Israel before it was “too late.”
Due to its Palestinian Transfer ideology, Kach was banned from the Israeli Knesset and was defined as a terror organization by the USA government. Marzel’s current party is not considered much better. It was represented in the former Knesset by Michael Ben Ari on behalf of the National Union party. In February 2012, Ben Ari was denied a visa to the USA due to his belonging to a terror organization. Yet, compared to the settlers there, he is quite innocuous, though he is especially loud.
Michael Ben Ari was a member of the former Knesset, who in 2012 reached the headlines after being denied an American visa (see USA Denies Visa to Jewish Knesset Member). This surprising achievement was the result of his having been a member of Kahane’s Kah party.
As an MK, Ben Ari was entitled to have aides. These were Baruch Marzel and Itamar ben Gvir. Marzel was Kahane’s spokesman for a decade; after his rabbi’s assassination, he was elected to head the organization until it was declared a terror organization and disbanded. Marzel and ben Gvir live in the Israeli settlements of Hebron, home to the most extremist settlers. Even among them, Marzel and ben Gvir are considered extremists.
