Seeking to get out of a personal rut or a change in life-style? Perhaps a new career or profession? The Mossad may have a lot to offer.
Israeli media are reporting that new Mossad director Tamir Pardo is seeking a new wave of agency recruits. They must be willing to make frequent, short trips abroad (to places like Dubai, Istanbul and Teheran?). Creativity and willingness to give one’s all as an emissary of the nation is a definite plus. Oh, and you have to be willing to learn everything there is about the black arts of assassination and kidnapping, as you’ll be serving in the secret ops unit known as Kidon (“Bayonet”). Apparently, Mossad is receiving tremendous kudos for its stellar service in murdering al-Mabouh, Iranian scientists and kidnapping Iranian generals, all on foreign soil. So it seeks to do more of the same.
Here are some of the requirements for the job: you have to like major projects which demand “creativity” and readiness to think outside the box, master foreign languages, and have an ability to “create one’s own reality and play a central role in it.” Valerie Plame or Tzipi Livni, anyone? But at least they didn’t kill anyone (as far as we know).
