One of the most promising and bizarre developments in the Mahmoud al-Mabouh Mossad hit is that several weeks ago, one of the wanted Mossad agents, Uri Brodsky, made the serious mistake of attempting to travel from Germany to Poland. Poland arrested him and over his objection deported him to Germany for trial. So now we have the first Mossad culprit in custody. Only 30 or so to go.
The question is who is the real Uri Brodsky? Presumably they either know his real identity or have some idea what it is. I only wish Germany would be more forthcoming.
But what is little known is that, as with so many of the other agents, the identities of many real Israelis were stolen by their own intelligence agency; to this please add one Uri Brodetzki, a student whose parents say he is a student living in San Francisco. In a Maariv story, the parents claim their son’s identity was also stolen and they’re none to happy about it. In fact, they worry that since there is so much hostility to Israeli policy in a city like San Francisco, the Mossad could have endangered his life.
Since Brodezki is an Israeli living in the U.S. one assumes he travels back and forth frequently, which would give the Mossad numberous opportunities to retrieve and tamper with his passport as it did in all the other cases.
If anyone knows the real Brodetzki, I’d love to talk to him if he’d be willing.
