Israeli Intelligence Monitoring Iran from Azerbaijan

Today’s London Times published an interview with a man who claims to be an agent of Israeli intelligence in Azerbaijan. Identifying himself as “Simon,” he told the publication that dozens of Israeli Mossad agents are operating in Azerbaijan.

“This is the starting point for intelligence work. Our presence here is unnoticed, but important. We have increased our presence in the past year, and it brings us very close to Iran. It’s amazing how vulnerable that country is,” said Simon.

According to the report, the meeting between the agent and a London Times reporter took place in Baku, outside the Israeli Embassy.

Four years ago, the Israeli diplomatic mission in Baku increased security measures, in response to the killing of senior Hizbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh.

Baku is a few hours by car from the Iranian border, and is known as the “gray zone” of intelligence operations. A large amount of information comes from people who regularly move freely across borders.

“Most of these (movements) are not controlled, except for the Iranians, who observe, as we watched them,” the agent told the Times. “It has been compared to Casablanca or Istanbul during World War II, a center of espionage.”

A local security expert believes that there are “only a few Mossad agents working there. But they are more efficient than the Iranian intelligence, which has thousands of agents there.”

“The Iranians are in the open, they want everyone to know that they are here. Israelis are thinner than the Americans. But, after all, everyone knows that they are here” he told the Times.

Political scientist Zazhdusht Alizadeh told the Times that the spy network in Baku are “an open secret.”

“We all know that they are here. The only secret is how much money they paid the Government of Azerbaijan in the form of bribes,” he said.

One Response to “Israeli Intelligence Monitoring Iran from Azerbaijan”

  1. by RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    ON Purim and we will read the story of how Haman, a descendant of Amalek, persuaded Achashveros, King of Persia, to destroy the Jews. But it’s also the story of our time! Once again Persia threatens to destroy the Jews, only this time its name has changed. We no longer call it Persia, we call it Iran.know why?
    There was a love fest between Hitler and Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Persia, from the moment Hitler came to power in 1933. The shah was enamored with the concept of the Aryan master race—especially because Nazi racial theorists referred to Aryan origins in the Proto-Indo-European lineage of Persia. So intense was the shah’s identification with the Third Reich that in 1935 he—can you believe this—renamed his ancient country “Iran,” which in Farsi means “Aryan!” From that point on, Iranians were constantly reminded that their country was bonded with Nazi Germany for all time.
    During the war years, Iran became a haven and headquarters for Gestapo agents and German operatives. In Tehran’s marketplace, it was common to see placards that declared,“In heaven, Allah is your master. On Earth, it is Adolf Hitler!” And so how could the president of Iran now deny that the Holocaust ever happened when his nation is named for Hitler’s master race?
    Let there be no mistake, the ultimate agenda of Iran and Hamas—like that of Hitler’s Germany—is not simply the destruction of Israel, but of the Jewish people.
