The latest rumblings about the Zygier affair comes from Israeli news outlet Ha’aretz who report that Zygier may have been imprisoned because he was about to ‘spill the beans’ about Mossad’s misuse of Australian passports in various Mossad operations, including the one that murdered Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in Dubai on 19 January 2010. The problem with this line of supposition is that ‘the beans had already been spilt’ by ex-Mossad officer Victor Ostrovsky certainly by February 2010. While Zygier may well have threatened to elaborate on the Al-Mabhouh assassination, it seems unlikely that the Israelis would go to all the trouble of incarcerating him in the way that has been revealed and then killing him or allowing him to kill himself if the ‘beans had already been spilt’.
For the Israelis to keep a prisoner in such circumstances there needs to be a far more important reason. The fact that Australian passports were used by the Mossad in the Al-Mabhouh assassination is old news and no big secret when Zygier was arrested nor when he was imprisoned in a secret prison and certainly not by the time he was killed/died in December 2010. And why would a Mossad man want to ‘spill the beans’ on something that was already well known among the various intelligence services of the world?
Considering all the circumstances it’s clear that Zygier knew something far more important than just the ins and outs of the use of foreign passports by Mossad in their various assassination and false flag operations.
While there now seems to be little doubt that Zygier was implicated somehow in the Al-Mabhouh assassination, it is also becoming increasingly apparent that his history with Mossad goes all the way back to 2000 when he left Australia aged 24-25 as a enthusiastic Zionist who was recruited into the Mossad just months before the events of 11 September 2001.
It may well be true that Zygier knew stuff about the Al-Mabhouh assassination but that wasn’t why he was arrested, secretly imprisoned and then killed. It was something else that was – and indeed still is – crucial to Israeli security.
