A Lesson Not Learned

So apparently Simon Wiesenthal was also a Mossad agent.

Simon WiesenthalSimon Wiesenthal, the Holocaust survivor who dedicated his life to tracking down Nazi war criminals, was seen all his life as a one-man organization. But now, documents from his estate show he was a Mossad agent.

A new book by Tom Segev, to be published on Thursday, reveals that the Mossad supported Wiesenthal – and also shows that Israel did more to capture Nazi war criminals than was previously known.

Wiesenthal started working for the Mossad after Eichmann’s capture and continued doing so for about 10 years. His main job was to trace Nazi criminals, but he also provided his operators with information about German missile scientists and engineers working in Egypt.

The Mossad financed the establishment of Wiesenthal’s office in Vienna and paid him some $300 a month in cash as wages.

Good on him.

Meanwhile, if you go this Telegraph article dealing with the book and its revelations, you will see that despite Wiesenthal’s great work in tracking down Nazi criminal’s, their views live on.
