Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar, and Mossad chief David Barnea, September 27, 2023.

Shin Bet Chief Ronen Bar spoke for the first time on the war in Gaza in recordings that were published by Kan 11 journalist Carmel Dangor Sunday night. Bar takes personal responsibility for the events of October 7 in those recordings and declares: “The cabinet has set for us a goal. In street language, it is to eliminate Hamas, and we are determined to do it. This is our ‘Munich.'”


The Shin Bet chief was referring to Operation Wrath of God, whose purpose was to kill the members of the terrorist organization Black September, who were directly or indirectly responsible for the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972. The Israeli government headed by Golda Meir assigned responsibility for the operation to the Mossad which was then headed by Zvi Zamir.

Between 1972 and 1979, the Mossad killed at least nine Black September top leaders, but the operation did not stop there, with the final terrorist taken out in Paris in June 1992.

Bar promises in the recording to hunt down the Hamas leaders “everywhere: in Gaza, in Judea and Samaria, in Lebanon, in Turkey, in Qatar, everywhere. It will take a few years but we will be there to do it.”

Taher Al-Nono, media advisor to Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas’s political bureau, responded on Sunday, saying, “These threats reflect the political and military impasse that the enemy is experiencing due to the steadfastness of our heroic people and their valiant resistance.”

Al-Nono added that “following the enemy’s threats to target the leaders of the movement at home and some sister countries, we confirm that these threats do not frighten any of the movement’s leaders, whose blood and the blood of their families are mixed with the blood of our patient and loyal people.”

That’s a lot of blood for one sentence.

Al-Nono also stated that the threats constitute a blatant violation of the sovereignty of the countries mentioned by the Shin Bet chief, and a direct violation of their security, “which requires pursuing the enemy and holding him accountable for his arrogance.”

Late last October, Israel announced the formation of a special unit called Nili (the name is an homage to a Jewish underground that collaborated with the British military against the Ottomans – DI), in cooperation between Mossad and the Shin Bet, to pursue Hamas leaders at home and abroad.

The following is Wiki’s account of the assassination of the top nine Black September terrorists:

  • Vaal Adel Zuaytar, one of the leaders of the Black September organization in Europe, who was responsible for an attempted attack on an El Al plane, on October 16, 1972, left his friend’s apartment in Rome and walked home. Two men armed with a 0.22-inch Beretta pistol with a silencer emerged from the darkness and fired 12 rounds at him in the doorway of his building. Zoeytar died on the spot.
  • Dr. Mahmoud Mashari, number 2 in Black September and the official representative of the PLO in France, on December 8, 1972, was killed by a bomb that was planted by Mossad on his desk in his Paris apartment. He managed to utter the words, “No one but Mossad could have done it.”
  • Hussein Abdel-Khir, a permanent Black September agent in Cyprus who served as a liaison with the Soviet Union, on January 24, 1973, was killed by a bomb that exploded under his bed in the Olympic hotel in Nicosia.
  • Bassel al-Kubaisi, George Habash’s deputy who participated in the planning of the massacre at Lod airport and provided stockpiles of weapons for Black September operations in Europe, on April 6, 1973, was stopped near the Madeleine Church in Paris by two men who shot him nine times from Beretta pistols equipped with a silencer. He died on the spot.
  • Less than 24 hours later, Said Mukassi, Hussein Abdel-Khir’s replacement, was killed in an explosion in his hotel room in Athens.
  • On the night between April 9 and 10, 1973, Israeli paratroopers and naval commandos, assisted by Mossad agents, attacked the headquarters of the PLO and Fatah in Beirut, killing, among others, Muhammad Yusuf al-Najar, Black September’s operations and intelligence officer. Also killed were Kamal Adwan, the group’s head of the western sector responsible for operations in Israel and the territories, and Kamal Nasser, the spokesman for Fatah.
  • Mohamed Boudia, who assisted Black September in Europe and sent terrorists to Israel, was killed on the morning of June 28, 1973, when his car exploded on the Rue des Fosse Saint-Bernard in the Latin Quarter of Paris.
  • Ali Hassan Salameh, the Black September leader, was killed in the streets of Beirut on January 22, 1979, by a car bomb that stopped near his car on the street when he was on his way to a family event.

The list literally goes on and on.
