Offering the Presidency of Israel to Albert Einstein

Chaim Weizmann, Israels first president, died on November 9, 1952. The Foreign Ministry was asked to assist in finding candidates and Ambassador to the United States Abba Eban approached Albert Einstein to ask if he would accept the offer to serve as president of Israel. In his letter to the professor, Eban wrote that he was acting at the instructions of Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. He added that acceptance would require relocation to Israel and acceptance of Israeli nationality, but in appreciation of the importance and scope of his work he would be offered freedom to continue his scientific activity. Upon receiving the invitation, Einstein replied in handwriting in English and German. Below is the exchange of letters.

Embassy of IsraelNovember 17, 1952

Dear Professor [Albert] Einstein:

The bearer of this letter is Mr. David Goitein of Jerusalem who is now serving as Minister at our Embassy in Washington. He is bringing you the question which Prime Minister Ben Gurion asked me to convey to you, namely, whether you would accept the Presidency of Israel if it were offered you by a vote of the Knesset. Acceptance would entail moving to Israel and taking its citizenship. The Prime Minister assures me that in such circumstances complete facility and freedom to pursue your great scientific work would be afforded by a government and people who are fully conscious of the supreme significance of your labors.

Mr. Goitein will be able to give you any information that you may desire on the implications of the Prime Minister’s question.

Whatever your inclination or decision may be, I should be deeply grateful for an opportunity to speak with you again within the next day or two at any place convenient for you. I understand the anxieties and doubts which you expressed to me this evening. On the other hand, whatever your answer, I am anxious for you to feel that the Prime Minister’s question embodies the deepest respect which the Jewish people can repose in any of its sons. To this element of personal regard, we add the sentiment that Israel is a small State in its physical dimensions, but can rise to the level of greatness in the measure that it exemplifies the most elevated spiritual and intellectual traditions which the Jewish people has established through its best minds and hearts both in antiquity and in modern times. Our first President, as you know, taught us to see our destiny in these great perspectives, as you yourself have often exhorted us to do.

Therefore, whatever your response to this question, I hope that you will think generously of those who have asked it, and will commend the high purposes and motives which prompted them to think of you at this solemn hour in our people’s history.

With cordial wishes,Abba Eban

I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel [to serve as President], and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it. All my life I have dealt with objective matters, hence I lack both the natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people and to exercise official functions. For these reasons alone I should be unsuited to fulfill the duties of that high office, even if advancing age was not making increasing inroads on my strength. I am the more distressed over these circumstances because my relationship to the Jewish people has become my strongest human bond, ever since I became fully aware of our precarious situation among the nations of the world.

In 2000, after publishingThe Marching Season, the second book in the Michael Osbourne series, I decided it was time for a change. We were nearing the end of the Clinton administration, and the president was about to embark on a final, last-ditch effort to bring peace to the Middle East. I had the broad outlines of a story in mind. It was the story of a hard-line Palestinian terrorist who wanted to torpedo the peace process by carrying out a wave of high-profile attacks in Europe and America. And it was the story of an Israeli assassin and intelligence officer who would be given the assignment of stopping him. The Palestinian would be called Tariq al-Hourani. The Israeli, as yet, had no name, and I thought long and hard before giving him one. I wanted it to be biblical, like my own. I finally decided to name him after the archangel Gabriel. It is a beautiful name, and it is filled with much religious and historical symbolism. Gabriel is the mightiest of Gods angels and His most important messenger. He is the prince of fire and the guardian of Israel. And, perhaps most important, Gabriel is the angel of revenge. I decided that Gabriels last name should short, simple, and somewhat neutral: Allon. In Hebrew, it means oak tree. I liked the image it conveyed, for Gabriel Allon was definitely solid as an oak.

Unlike the archangel Gabriel, who is said to reside at the right hand of God, Gabriel Allon the man was born in a small, dusty agricultural town in the Jezreel Valley of Israel. His parents were German Holocaust survivors and spoke German at home. As a result, young Gabriels first language was German rather than Hebrew, and German remains the language of his dreams to this day. We know little about Gabriels father, other than the fact that he was killed during the Six-Day War in 1967. His mother, Irene, was the far more dominant force in his life. The daughter of Viktor Frankel, a well-known German expressionist painter who was murdered at Auschwitz in 1942, she was one of the most important painters in the young State of Israel. Gabriel inherited his mothers artistic talent and, after completing his mandatory service in the Israeli army, entered the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israels national school of art. He was studying there in September 1972, when Palestinian terrorists kidnapped and murdered eleven Israeli athletes and coaches at the Olympic Games in Munich, Germany. A week after the massacre, a man came to Bezalel to see Gabriel. He was a small, wiry figure with hands that looked as though they had been borrowed from someone twice his size and teeth that looked like a steel trap. His name was Ari Shamron, and he was about to forever change the course of young Gabriels life.

Ari Shamron was a legendary operative in the Israeli secret service whose exploits included the 1960 capture of Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Final Solution. On that day in September 1972, he had just been given a new assignment by Prime Minister Golda Meir: to hunt down and kill the Black September terrorists responsible for the massacre in Munich, many of whom were living openly in Europe. To carry out that task, he needed a young man who could move around the continent without attracting unwanted attention. He needed a young man who could speak a European language and who had the emotional coldness necessary to kill many men at close quarters. He chose the child of Holocaust survivors who still spoke German in his dreams. After undergoing a month of intense training, Gabriel was sent to Rome, where he killed a man named Wadal Abdel Zwaiter, Black Septembers chief of operations in Italy. Over the next three years, Gabriel would kill five more terrorists, all at close range with a .22 caliber Beretta.

In 1975, when returned to Israel at the end of the mission, his appearance had changed dramatically. He looked much older than his twenty-five years and his hair had gone to gray at his templessmudges of ash on the prince of fire, as Shamron liked to say. Haunted by the faces of the men whom he had killed, Gabriel found he could no longer paint. With Shamrons help, he settled in Venice under an assumed identity and served an apprenticeship with master art restorer Umberto Conti. For the next fifteen years, he lived exclusively in Europe, restoring paintings under the name Mario Delvecchio and carrying out assassinations for the State of Israel. In 1991, at the beginning of the first Gulf War, he was tracking the movements of a terrorist in Vienna when a concealed bomb exploded in his car, killing his young son and grievously wounding his wife, Leah. The terrorist who carried out the attack was named Tariq al-Hourani, the man whom Gabriel would be assigned to kill nine years later.

The story of that assignment is told inThe Kill Artist, which was supposed to be the first and only Gabriel Allon novel. I never liked the title. In fact, I loath it to this day. It was forced on me by an editor I otherwise adored because he didnt like the title I had placed on the manuscript, which wasPrince of Fire. Despite the title, the book was an instantNew York Timesbestseller. When I moved to Putnam in 2001, the legendary publisher Phyllis Grann suggested that I turn Gabriel into a continuing character. I thought it was a terrible idea, and I told her so. I felt there was too much anti-Semitism in the world, and far too much hatred of Israel, to make a continuing Israeli character palatable to a mass audience. She told me I was wrong and ordered me to get to work on the follow-up. It was calledThe English Assassin, and it sold nearly twice as many copies asThe Kill Artist. The next book,The Confessor, sold even more. In fact, each of the novels as sold more than its predecessor. For the record, Phyllis Grann was right, and I was wrong.

I am asked often whether it is necessary to read the novels in order. The answer is no, but it probably doesnt hurt. For the record, the order of publication is as follows:The Kill Artist,The English Assassin,The Confessor,A Death in Vienna,Prince of Fire,The Messenger,The Secret Servant, andMoscow Rules. The stories follow a familiar pattern fans of the series have come to expect: Gabriel is drawn out of retirement or seclusion, usually by a murder or some other act of violence, and soon finds himself at the center of a fast-paced, swirling international adventure. Several memorable sub-characters appear throughout the series: Eli Lavon, the surveillance artist and Gabriels old friend from the Black September operation; Uzi Navot, the chief of the Special Operations directorate who forever toils in Gabriels shadow; Julian Isherwood, the London art dealer and volunteer helper of Israeli intelligence who provides legitimate work for Gabriels cover; Adrian Carter, the deputy director of the CIA; and, of course, Ari Shamron, the legendary former chief of Israeli intelligence who refuses to allow Gabriel to live in peace.

The series contains two internal trilogies. The first consists ofThe English Assassin,The Confessor, andA Death in Viennaand explores what I call the unfinished business of the Holocaust.The English Assassindeals with Nazi art looting and the actions of Switzerland during the Second World War.The Confessorwrestles with the role of the Roman Catholic Church during the Holocaust and the actions, or lack thereof, of Pope Pius XII.A Death in Viennatells the story of Gabriels quest to bring justice to a Nazi war criminal, a man whom his mother encountered during the Death March from Auschwitz in January 1945. It remains my favorite.

The second internal trilogy consists ofPrince of Fire,The Messenger, andThe Secret Servantand deals with the question of terrorism in the modern world.Prince of Fireexplores the roots of Palestinian terrorism through a story of revenge,The Messengertakes a hard look at the role Saudi Arabia played in creating al-Qaeda and its affiliates, andThe Secret Servantsurveys the rise of militant Islam in Europe.

Moscow Rules, the eighth book in the series, finds Gabriel on assignment in the New Russia. He has changed much since we first met him. He is a bit older, much wiser, and his cover has been blown many times over. He is a friend of both the American president and the Pope, and moves at the highest levels of Western intelligence in London and Washington. He has returned to Europe and resides now on a secluded estate in Umbria, where he restores paintings in secret for the Vatican Picture Gallery. After many years of dithering, he has finally come to his senses and married Chiara Zolli, a beautiful Venetian Jew whom he first met during the course ofThe Confessor. Like Gabriel, Chiara works as an undercover operative for Israeli intelligence. She is interested in starting a family. Gabriel, who lost one family to his enemies, is not at all sure hes capable of having another.

As for his first wife, Leah, she resides now in a psychiatric hospital on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, locked in a prison of memory. From her favorite spot in the hospitals garden, she can see across Jerusalem to the spot on the Mount of Olives, where her only son is buried. Gabriels encounters with Leah are some of the most touching and memorable scenes in the series. They are also highly symbolic. Scarred by fire, Leah resembles a canvas that has suffered significant paint losses. She is the one thing Gabriel cannot restore. She is the price he has paid for a life spent battling the forces of evila life that began one day in September 1972, when a man named Ari Shamron came to the Bezalel Academy of Fine Art and Design and asked a gifted young painter to lay down his brushes and pick up a gun instead.

Lavon Affair – The Full Wiki

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Lavon Affair refers to the scandal over a failed Israeli covert operation in Egypt known as Operation Susannah, in which Israeli military intelligence planted bombs in Egyptian, American and British-owned targets in Egypt in the summer of 1954 in the hopes that “the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communists, ‘unspecified malcontents’ or ‘local nationalists'” would be blamed.[1] It became known as the Lavon Affair after the Israeli defense minister Pinhas Lavon, who was forced to resign because of the incident, or euphemistically as the Unfortunate Affair (Hebrew: , HaEsek HaBish). In 2005, Israeli President Moshe Katzav honored the nine Egyptian Jewish agents who were involved.[2]

In the early 1950s the United States initiated a more activist policy toward Egypt often in contrast with British policies. Israel feared that this policy, which encouraged Britain to withdraw its military forces from the Suez Canal, would embolden Egyptian President Nasser’s military ambitions towards Israel. Israel first sought to influence this policy through diplomatic means but was frustrated.[3]

In the summer of 1954 Colonel Binyamin Gibli, the chief of Israel’s military intelligence, Aman, initiated Operation Suzannah in order to reverse that decision. The goal of the Operation was to carry out bombings and other acts of violence in Egypt with the aim of creating an atmosphere in which the British and American opponents of British withdrawal from Egypt would be able to gain the upper hand and block the withdrawal.

According to historian Shabtai Teveth, who wrote one of the more detailed accounts, the assignment was “To undermine Western confidence in the existing [Egyptian] regime by generating public insecurity and actions to bring about arrests, demonstrations, and acts of revenge, while totally concealing the Israeli factor. The team was accordingly urged to avoid detection, so that suspicion would fall on the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communists, ‘unspecified malcontents’ or ‘local nationalists’.”[1]

The top-secret cell, Unit 131, which was to carry out the operation, had existed since 1948 and under Aman since 1950. At the time of Operation Susannah, Unit 131 was the subject of a bitter dispute between Aman {military intelligence} and Mossad {national intelligence agency} over who should control it.

Unit 131 operatives had been recruited several years before, when the Israeli intelligence officer Avram Dar arrived in Cairo undercover as a British citizen of Gibraltar called John Darling. He had recruited several Egyptian Jews who had previously been active in illegal emigration activities and trained them for covert operations.

Aman decided to activate the network in the spring of 1954. On July 2, they firebombed a post office in Alexandria, and on July 14, they bombed the U.S. Information Agency libraries in Alexandria and Cairo and a British-owned theater. The homemade bombs, consisting of bags containing acid placed over nitroglycerine, were inserted into books, and placed on the shelves of the libraries just before closing time. Several hours later, as the acid ate through the bags, the bombs would explode. They did little damage to the targets and caused no injuries or deaths.

Before the group began Israeli agent Avraham Seidenberg (Avri Elad) was sent to oversee the operations. Seidenberg assumed the identity of Paul Frank, a former SS officer with Nazi underground connections. Avraham Seidenberg allegedly informed the Egyptians resulting in the Egyptian Intelligence Service following a suspect to his target, the Rio Theatre, where a fire engine was standing by. Egyptian authorities arrested this suspect, Philip Natanson, when his bomb accidentally ignited prematurely in his pocket. Having searched his apartment, they found incriminating evidence and names of accomplices to the operation. Several suspects were arrested, including Egyptian Jews and undercover Israelis.

Colonel Dar and Seidenberg had managed to escape. One suspect {Yosef Carmon} was tortured to death in prison and Hungarian born Israeli Meir Max Bineth committed suicide. The trial began on December 11 and lasted until January 27, 1955; two of the accused (Moshe Marzouk and Shmuel Azar) were condemned to execution by hanging and two acquitted with the rest receiving lengthy prison terms. The trial was widely criticized as a show trial, and there were allegations that evidence had been extracted by torture.[4]

Two of the imprisoned operatives, Meir Meyuhas and Meir Za’afran, were released in 1962, after having served seven year jail sentences. The rest were eventually freed in February 1968, in a secret addendum to a prisoner of war exchange.

Soon after the affair, Mossad chief Isser Harel expressed suspicion to Aman concerning the integrity of Avraham Seidenberg. Despite his concerns, Aman continued using Seidenberg for intelligence operations until 1956, when he was caught trying to sell Israeli documents to the Egyptians. Seidenberg was tried and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. In 1980, Harel publicly revealed evidence that Seidenberg had been turned by the Egyptians even before Operation Suzannah.

In meetings with prime minister Moshe Sharett, secretary of defense Pinhas Lavon denied any knowledge of the operation. When intelligence chief Gibli contradicted Lavon, Sharrett commissioned a board of inquiry consisting of Israeli Supreme Court Justice Isaac Olshan and the first chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces, Yaakov Dori that was unable to find conclusive evidence that Lavon had authorized the operation. Lavon tried to fix the blame on Shimon Peres, who was the secretary general of the defense ministry, and Gibli for insubordination and criminal negligence. Sharett resolved the dilemma by siding with Peres, who along with Moshe Dayan testified against Lavon, after which Lavon resigned. Former prime minister David Ben-Gurion succeeded Lavon as minister of defense. A short time later, Sharett, who did not know about the operation in advance, and who had strongly denied Israel’s involvement, resigned as Prime Minister and was replaced by Ben-Gurion.

In April 1960, a review of minutes from the inquiry found inconsistencies and possibly a fraudulent document in Gibli’s original testimony that seemed to support Lavon’s account of events. During this time, it also came to light that Seidenberg (the Israeli agent running Operation Suzannah in Egypt), had committed perjury during the original inquiry. Seidenberg was also suspected of betraying the group to Egyptian authorities; though the charges were never proven, he was eventually sentenced to a jail term of 10 years. Ben-Gurion scheduled closed hearings with a new board of inquiry chaired by Chaim Cohen, a supreme court justice.

This inquiry found that the perjury indeed had been committed, and that Lavon had not authorized the operation. Sharett and Levi Eshkol tried to issue a statement that would placate both Lavon and those who had opposed him. Ben-Gurion refused to accept the compromise and viewed it as a divisive play within the Mapai party. After another investigative committee sided with the Cohen inquiry, Ben-Gurion resigned from his post as defense minister. This led to the expulsion of Lavon from the Histadrut labor union and an early call for new elections which changed the political structure in Israel.

It should be noted that the specifics of Operation Susannah were not public at the time of the political upheaval.

Operation Suzannah and the Lavon Affair turned out to be disastrous for Israel in several ways:

In March 2005, Israel publicly honored the surviving operatives, and President Moshe Katsav presented each with a certificate of appreciation for their efforts on behalf of the state, ending decades of official denial by Israel.[2]

The LAVON AFFAIR – Russia Channel Discussion Forum

The Lavon AffairBy David Hirst, Excerpts from his book: The Gun and the Olive Branch, 1977, 1984, Futura Publications In July 1954 Egypt was plagued by a series of bomb outrages directed mainly against American and British property in Cairo and Alexandria. It was generally assumed that they were the work of the Moslem Brothers, then the most dangerous challenge to the still uncertain authority of Colonel (later President) Nasser and his two-year-old revolution. Nasser was negotiating with Britain over the evacuation of its giant military bases in the Suez Canal Zone, and, the Moslem Brothers, as zealous nationalists, were vigorously opposed to any Egyptian compromises.

It therefore came as a shock to world, and particularly Jewish opinion, when on 5 October the Egyptian Minister of the Interior, Zakaria Muhieddin, announced the break-up of a thirteen-man Israeli sabotage network. An ‘anti-Semitic’ frame-up was suspected.

Indignation increased when, on 11 December, the group was brought to trial. In the Israeli parliament, Prime Minister Moshe Sharett denounced the ‘wicked plot hatched in Alexandria … the show trial which is being organized there against a group of Jews who have fallen victims to false accusations and from who mit seems attempts are being made to extract confessions of imaginary crimes, by threats and torture . . .’49 The trade union newspaper Davar observed that the Egyptian regime ‘seems to take its inspiration from the Nazis’ and lamented the ‘deterioration in the status of Egyptian Jews in general’.50 For Haaretz the trial ‘proved that the Egyptian rulers do not hesitate to invent the most fantastic accusations if it suits them’; it added that ‘in the present state of affairs in Egypt the junta certainly needs some diversions’.51 And the next day the .7erusalem Post carried this headline: ‘Egypt Show Trial Arouses Israel, Sharett Tells House. Sees Inquisition Practices Revived.’

The trial established that the bombings had indeed been carried out by an Israeli espionage and terrorist network. This was headed by Colonel Avraharn Dar –alias John Darling– and a core of professionals who had set themselves up in Egypt under various guises. They had recruited a number of Egyptian Jews; one of them was a young woman, Marcelle Ninio, who worked in the offices of a British company. Naturally, the eventual exposure of such an organization was not going to improve the lot of the vast majority of Egyptian Jews who wanted no-thing to do with Zionism. There were still at least 50,000 Jews in Egypt; there had been something over 60,000 in 1947, more than half of whom were actually foreign nationals. During the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948, the populace had some times vented its frustration against them, and some were killed in mob violence or by terrorist bombs. In spite of this, and of the revolutionary upheaval which followed four years later, few Jews-including the foreign nationals-left the country, and fewer still went to Israel. A Jewish journalist insisted: ‘We, Egyptian Jews, feel secure in our homeland, Egypt.’52

The welfare of Oriental Jewry in their various homelands was, as we have seen, Israel’s last concern. And in July 1954 it had other worries. It was feeling isolated and insecure. Its Western friends-let alone the rest of the world-were unhappy about its aggressive behaviour. The US Assistant Secretary of State advised it to ‘drop the attitude of the conqueror’.53 More alarming was the rapprochement under way between Egypt, on the one hand, and the United States and Britain on the other. President Eisenhower had urged Britain to give up her giant military base in the Suez Canal Zone; Bengurion had failed to dissuade her. It was to sabotage this rapprochement that the head of Israeli intelligence, Colonel Benyamin Givli, ordered his Egyptian intelligence ring to strike.

Givli’s boss, Defence Minister Pinhas Lavon, and the Prime Minister, Moshe Sharett, knew nothing of the operation. For Givli was a member of a powerful Defence Ministry clique which often acted independently, or in outright defiance, of the cabinet. They were proteges of Bengurion and, although ‘The Old Man’ had left the Premiership for Sde Boker, his Negev desert retreat, a few months before, he was able, through them, to perpetuate the hardline ‘activist’ policies in which he believed. On Givli’s instructions, the Egyptian network was to plant bombs in American and British cultural centres, British-owned cinemas and Egyptian public buildings. The Western powers, it was hoped, would conclude that there was fierce internal opposition to the rapprochement and that Nasser’s young r6gime,faced with this challenge, was not one in which they could place much confidence.54 Mysterious violence might therefore persuade both London and Washington that British troops should remain astride the Canal; the world had not forgotten Black Saturday, 28 January 1951, in the last year of King Farouk’s reign, when mobs rampaged through downtown Cairo, setting fire to foreign-owned hotels and shops, in which scores of people, including thirteen Britons, died.

The first bomb went off, on 2 July, in the Alexandria post office. On 11 July, the Anglo-Egyptian Suez negotiations, which had been blocked for nine months, got under way again. The next day the Israeli embassy in London was assured that, up on the British evacuation from Suez, stock-piled arms would not be handed over to the Egyptians. But the Defence Ministry activists were unconvinced. On 14 July their agents, in clandestine radio contact with Tel Aviv, fire-bombed US Information Service libraries in Cairo and Alexandria. That same day, a phosphorous bomb exploded prematurely in the pocket of one Philip Natanson, nearly burning him alive, as he was about to enter the British-owned Rio cinema in Alexandria. His arrest and subsequent confession led to the break-up of the whole ring-but not before the completion of another cycle of clandestine action and diplomatic failure. On 15 July President Eisenhower assured the Egyptians that ‘simultaneously’ with the signing of a Suez agreement the United States would enter into ‘firm commitments’ for economic aid to strengthen their armed forces.55 On 23 July –anniversary of the 1952 revolution– the Israeli agents still at large had a final fling; they started fires in two Cairo cinemas, in the central post office and the railway station. On the same day, Britain announced that the War Secretary, Antony Head, was going to Cairo. And on 27 July he and the Egyptians initiated the ‘Heads of Agreement’ on the terms of Britain’s evacuation.

The trial lasted from 11 December to 3 January. Not all the culprits were there, because Colonel Dar and an Israeli colleague managed to escape, and the third Israeli, Hungarian-born Max Bennett, committed suicide; but those who were present all pleaded guilty. Most of them, including Marcelle Ninio, were sentenced to various terms of imprisonment. But Dr Musa Lieto Marzuk, a Tunisian-born citizen of France who was a surgeon at the Jewish Hospital in Cairo, and Samuel Azar, an engineering professor from Alexandria, were condemned to death. In spite of representations from France, Britain and the United States the two men were hanged. Politically, it would have been very difficult for Nasser to spare them, for only seven weeks before six Moslem Brothers had been executed for complicity in an attempt on his life. Nevertheless Israel reacted with grief and anger. So did some Western Jews. Marzuk and Azar ‘died the death of martyrs’, said Sharett on the same day in the Knesset, whose members stood in silent tribute. Israel went into official mourning the following day. Beersheba and Ramat Gan named streets after the executed men. Israeli delegates to the Egyptian-Israeli Mixed Armistice Commission refused to attend its meeting, declaring that they would not sit down with representatives of the Cairo junta. In New York there were bomb threats against the Egyptian consulate and a sniper fired four shots into its fourth-floor window.56

This whole episode, which was to poison Israeli political life for a decade and more, came to be known as the ‘Lavon Affair’, for it had been established in the Cairo trial that Lavon, as Minister of Defence, had approved the campaign of sabotage. At least so the available evidence made it appear. But in Israel, Lavon had asked Moshe Sharett for a secret inquiry into a matter about which the cabinet knew nothing. Benyamin Givli, the intelligence chief, claimed that the so-called ‘security operation’ had been authorized by Lavon himself. Two other Bengurion proteges, Moshe Dayan and Shimon Peres, testified against Lavon. Lavon denounced Givli’s papers as forgeries and demanded the resignation of all three men. Instead, Sharett ordered Lavon himself to resign and invited Bengurion to come out of retirement and take over the Defence Ministry. It was a triumphant comeback for the ‘activist’ philosophy whose excesses both Sharett and Lavon had tried to modify. It was con-summated, a week later, by an unprovoked raid on Gaza, which left thirty-nine Egyptians dead and led to the Suez War Of 1956.57

When the truth about the Lavon Affair came to light, six years after the event, it confirmed that there had been a frame-up-not, however, by the Egyptians, but by Bengurion and his young proteges. Exposure was fortuitous. Giving evidence in a forgery trial in September 1960, a witness divulged on passant that he had seen the faked signature of Lavon on a document relating to a 1954 ‘security mishap’.58 Bengurion immediately announced that the three-year statute of limitations prohibited the opening of the case. But Lavon, now head of the powerful Histradut Trade Union Federation, seized upon this opportunity to demand an inquiry. Bengurion did everything in his power to stop it, but his cabinet overruled him. The investigation revealed that the security operation’ had been planned behind Lavon’s back. His signature had been forged, and the bombing had actually begun long before his approval –which he withheld– had been sought. He was a scapegoat pure and simple. On Christmas Day 1960,the Israeli cabinet unanimously exonerated him of all guilt in the ‘disastrous security adventure in Egypt’; the Attorney General had, in the meantime, found ‘conclusive evidence of forgeries as well as false testimony in an earlier inquiry’.59 Bengurion was enraged. He issued an ultimatum to the ruling Labour party to remove Lavon, stormed out of a cabinet meeting and resigned. In what one trade unionist described as ‘an immoral and unjust submission to dictatorship’, his diehard supporters in the Histradut swung the vote in favour i)f accepting Lavon’s resignation. Lavon, however, won a moral victory over the man who twice forced him from office. In the streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, students demonstrated in his favour. They carried placards reading: ‘Bengurion Go to Sde Boker, Take Dayan and Peres with You. We do Not Accept Leaders with Elastic Consciences.’60 The affair rocked the ruling establishment, split public opinion, forced new elections and contributed largely to Bengurion’s eventual disappearance from public life.

But Lavon was not the only real victim. There were also those misguided Egyptian Jews who paid with their lives or long terms of imprisonment. It is true that when, in 1968, Marcelle Ninio and her colleagues were exchanged for Egyptian’ prisoners in Israel, they received a heroes’ welcome. True, too, that when Miss Ninio got married Prime Minister Golda Meir, Defence Minister Dayan and Chief of Staff General Bar Lev all attended the wedding and Dayan told the bride ‘the Six-Day War was success enough that it led to your freedom’.61 However, after spending fourteen years in an Egyptian prison, the former terrorists did not share the leadership’s enthusiasm. When Ninio and two of her colleagues appeared on Israel television a few years later, they all expressed the belief that the reason why they were not released earlier was because Israel made little effort to get them out. ‘Maybe they didn’t want us to come back,’ said Robert Dassa. ‘There was so much intrigue in Israel. We were instruments in the hands of the Egyptians and of others … and what is more painful after all that we went through is that this continues to be so.’ In Ninio’s opinion, ‘the government didn’t want to spoil its relations with the United States and didn’t want the embarrassment of admitting it was behind our action’.62

But the real victims were the great mass of Egyptian Jewry. Episodes like the Lavon Affair tended to identify them, in the mind of ordinary Egyptians, with the Zionist movement. When, in 1956, Israeli invaded and occupied Sinai, feeling ran high against them. The government, playing into the Zionist hands, began ordering Jews to leave the country. Belatedly, reluctantly, 21,000 left in the following year; more were expelled later, and others, their livelihood gone, had nothing to stay for. But precious few went to Israel.

9/11 Bill Maher vs Mos Def – YouTube

Bill Maher tries to talk fiction again, but Mos Def isn’t fooled.my new channel http://www.youtube.com/user/FlexEffect21

three of the most obvious reasons you know it was a flase flag operation:

1 – israeli mossad were arrested that day on the George Washington Bridge with a truck full of explosives (then later released back to israel)

2 – jet fuel (kerosene) doesn’t melt steel in oxygen

3 – they fell like a controlled demolition

Who were the people arrested on the George Washington Bridge & what did they have in their van?Can Jet Fuel (kerosene) melt steal?Was Norad told to stand down?How can you look at the way the 3 world trade center buildings fell & not see controlled demolition?What caused building 7 to fall?Where did the nano thermite come from?Do you know about Operation Northwoods?Do you know about the Lavon Affair?

high profile people who have acknowledged the ISRAELI MOSSAD involvement in the 9/11 attacks

I can list several off the top of my head:

former head of the US ARMY WAR COLLEGE, Dr Alan Sabroskyformer PRESIDENT OF ITALY, Francesco Cossigaformer MI5 agent, Annie Machonrenowned BBC correspondent Alan HartUS Marine Ken O’keefe

Zoe and Wade | Hart of Dixie Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia

The relationship between Zoe Hart and Wade Kinsella began taking wing Zoe’s very first day in Bluebell, when she moved into the carriage house on the Mayor’s Plantation, She loved Wade’s home, the gatehouse.

They are portaded by Rachel Bilson and Wilson Bethel.

Neighbors, Zoe and Wade have had an obvious attraction to one another from the very beginning- even at their first meeting when an irate Zoe burst into Wade’s house, and Wade insisted if she couldn’t be polite he wouldn’t help her find the fusebox. This attraction resulted in a late-night hook-up in Wade’s car on Zoe’s second night in Bluebell- a hook-up Zoe cut short when she accidentally hit the horn in Wade’s car, effectively “playing Dixie with her butt” and was sure she had hit rock bottom. (Pilot)

“What are you doing?” – Zoe Hart

“You were freaking out. I thouyyight I’d snap you out of it with my generic beer breath.” – Wade Kinsella

Wade was amused with Zoe’s attitude, and sure to play into it any chance he got. Zoe, on the other hand, was not so amused with Wade, and even called him “the most irresponsible person I’ve ever met” after he disappeared while supposed to be working with her on getting Lavon’s float ready for the Founder’s Day Parade. A frustrated Zoe lit into Wade, freaking out, until Wade stopped her short with a kiss, which Zoe responded to before pulling away suddenly. (Parades & Pariahs)

First rule of a snakebite, Doc. Can’t let the victim exert herself. – Wade Kinsella

What’s the second rule, apply pressure to side of boob? Put me down! – Zoe Hart

Wade offered Zoe his help on several occasions- fixing the fusebox, driving her to the old Hooper House so she could investigate a snake, carrying her into the doctor’s after she was bitten by the snake, and offering to help her with his Uncle Mo’s recipe for the Gumbo Cook-off. However, Zoe never warmed up to the idea of receiving help from Wade, insisting that “For the four hundredth time, I do not need your advice, your help, or your Alabama lovin'”. Despite her refusal, Wade, knowing her chances in the Cook-Off, entered his own gumbo under her name without her knowledge, winning a very surprised and confused Zoe second prize in the contest. (Gumbo & Glory)

When the 2011 heat wave set in, Zoe’s attraction to Wade became difficult for her to ignore, particularly when she was required to stitch up a shirtless Wade’s chest after he injured himself on a fence behind the Rammer Jammer. Forgetting her inhibitions, Zoe went to the Rammer Jammer with the specific intention to hit on Wade, who took some time to catch on to what was happening (“You got a contact lens situation, or…?”)- despite this, the two made plans for later that night. However, when the time came, Zoe apologized to Wade and said she just couldn’t do it, she just wasn’t that kind of girl. (In Havoc & In Heat)

Though Zoe passed Wade off early on, considering him irresponsible and refusing his help, she continued to see different sides of him she hadn’t expected. For example, when she first learned about Wade’s father. At first, Wade’s seeming indifference to his father’s health infuriated Zoe, who thought him callous and insensitive, and told him so. However, she later found out that Wade’s father, Crazy Earl was the town drunk, whom Wade looked out for, and dutifully helped down from the top of the hardware store from which he threatened to jump each month.(Faith & Infidelity)

Gradually, Zoe became less hostile toward Wade and their relationship continued to evolve, and became a genuine kind of friendship.

When Zoe ‘s latest crush, Judson, slept with her best friend, Gigi, bringing an abrupt halt to their relationship, Wade was relieved to hear that Zoe hadn’t thought she and Judson were meant to be, and was even able to cheer Zoe up about the situation (Homecoming & Coming Home).

Wade also proves to be extremely reluctant to install the new fusebox Lavon bought that would have ended the (literal) power struggle between the carriage and gatehouses , even lying to Lavon about his electrical skills and insisting he wouldn’t know how to install it. However, he doesn’t fool Lavon , who catches on quickly and encourages Wade to be honest with Zoe about his feelings for her. Following Lavon ‘s advice, Wade attempts to do so while driving her to the airport for her return home to New York for Thanksgiving, but the attempt falls through when Zoe changes plans at the last minute and decides to stay in Bluebell. (The Pirate & The Practice)

When Zoe begins acting strangely, as well as strangely happy, the whole town is abuzz with curiosity- and Wade is no exception. He nearly goes crazy trying to discover Zoe’s secret, convinced she’s seeing someone and sharing his theories with Lavon Hayes and Shelley Ng. (Mistress & Misunderstandings)

When Dr. Judson Lyons makes a reappearance in Zoe’s life, Wade is anything but pleased, and he and Zoe involve themselves in a mini-battle that occupies much of Zoe’s attention during the Sweetie Pie Dance. Ultimately, Judson breaks up with Zoe because of this:

“You were more excited about your war with Wade tonight than you were about your night with me. That not tell you everything you need to know?” – Judson Lyons. (Sweetie Pies & Sweaty Palms)

“No, I mean why are you with my brother?” – Wade Kinsella

Wade later discovers Zoe on a date with his estranged brother, Jesse , when the two show up at George ‘s bachelor party, much to his dismay. However, he tries to deny his feelings for Zoe , and tells his brother he’s free to date her because they’re both snobbish and superior, and would be perfect together- unfortunately, Zoe overhears this exchange. She later confronts Wade , asking if that was what he really thought of her. Wade says yes to this, and continues to point out the three men who have caught her eye since her arrival in Bluebell- a veterinarian , a lawyer , and an eco-geologist oceanographer/army hero – all lucrative careers, and takes off angrily in his truck, leaving behind a surprised and hurt Zoe. Zoe then decides to take a step back from dating Jesse , telling him “I can’t always stay out of people’s business, but when I can I probably should” (Bachelorettes & Bullets).

Zoe remains angry at Wade for some time, to Lavon’s exasperation. When Tansy finally convinces Wade to ask Zoe to be his partner for the Bluebell Battle, Zoe thinks his apology and request are some kind of joke. After some consideration, she agrees. During the Battle, she vaguely asks Wade about her situation with George, however Wade misunderstands and believes Zoe may be returning his interest. Excited by this, and by the way he and Zoe are connecting and getting along during the battle , Wade cancels his plans with Tansy. During the final event, Wade attempts to confess his feelings to Zoe, but the pair is interrupted by Rose Hattenbarger. Ultimately, Zoe costs the pair the prize and Wade discovers Zoe’s real intentions for entering the race, angrily telling her that she’s obsessed with getting what she wants and doesn’t care who she hurts along the way and that she needs to wake up:

“I cannot believe that I didn’t see this from the beginning. You never wanted to help me. The only thing you wanted was what you always do. Him. And you are…you are so obsessed with getting what you want, you don’t care who you hurt along the way. Well, let me tell you something, Zoe Hart. George Tucker and Lemon Breeland are getting married. That is how this story ends. Why does everyone in this town see that but you?” – Wade Kinsella (The Race & The Relationship)

Zoe is later chided by Lavon, because he had told her about Wade’s feelings, and to be careful with how she handled it. Feeling outcast with Lavon and Wade angry at her, Rose in the hospital, and George back together with Lemon, Zoe makes the decision to leave Bluebell . When Lavon breaks the news to Wade that Zoe has plans to leave without telling Wade, his face falls, though he doesn’t say a word. Moments later, Zoe walks into the Plantation to get breakfast with the news that she’s decided not to leave after all. (Disaster Drills & Departures)

Lavon makes Zoe leave town during George and Lemon’s wedding. Wade’s car breaks down and Zoe decides to get some help by giving him a ride. South Alabama received a massive rainstorm, thus making Zoe and Wade seek shelter in an empty barn. After a disagreement, Zoe accidentally lets a baby goat out in the rainstorm. In the process of saving the baby goat, Zoe gets her shoulder cut and Wade has to stitch her up. They try to kiss, but a policeman comes and takes them back to Bluebell. The policeman drops Zoe off at the carriage house and takes Wade to his house (gatehouse). Wade goes to Zoe’s house and they end up having passionate sex. After Zoe and Wade have sex, George also comes to Zoe’s house and they kiss. George ended his engagement to Lemon, due to there being external factors in play (Lemon’s interest in Lavon and George’s budding feelings for Zoe), making a wedding impossible. (The Big Day – season finale)no

With Wade’s and George’s feelings apparent, Zoe must decide who she wants. Zoe tells George that she is not ready for a relationship with him and she doesn’t want to be his rebound girl.

=== Episodes 1-2 === Zoe has to decide who she wants to be with, she decides none of them. She roughly told George he should date other people. She later tells Wade that she isn’t picking and they end up “doing it”. I Zoe says she will never have sex with Wade again. Wade bet $100 that in the next 48hours Zoe will have sex with him, if not, he pays her $100. Zoe needs help finding someone for Rose and has to go to Wade. Zoe knew Wade would try something on their way to Mobile where they had to go for Rose, so she invited Rose. Before Rose got in the car, they had a moment but was ruined in roses arrival. Nothing really happens after.

=== Episode 3-4 === Wade helps Zoe find an armadillo. Later Zoe comes over and brings “Halo”. Wade then suggests strip “Halo”. They end up having sex. Under a table… Believe it or not, Zoe’s idea.

Zoe and Wade develop a sexual relationship for several episodes.Zoe states she is currently unavailable and seeing Wade, though, they are only involved in a sexual way.

Wade decides that he wants more and says that Zoe should go on a date. Zoe was supposed to bid on Wade’s auction basket. They go on this picnic date but due to some nervous actions from Zoe, the date goes sour.(Sparks Fly)

Zoe’s mother comes over for Christmas and Zoe is eager to keep her mother unaware of the casual relationship she had with Wade. In seach of a new Santa for Bluebell, Zoe and her mother ask Earl, but due to negative experiences that happened to Earlin the past they need help from Wade to smooth things over. Zoe confesses to her mother that she misses Wade and later on, apologises to Wade and they get back together but this time as a real couple.

Zoe and Wade are tasked to play the role of “the First Couple” and Zoe begins a positive-oriented approach to dealing with her relationship with Wade. Zoe starts reminding people of Lemon Breeland and so Wade decides to make Zoe have a “mini-eruption” so Zoe can blow off some steam without erupting or doing something really bad. (Old Alabama)

In Lovesick Blues Wade goes out of town with his band in the middle of a flu epidemic. Even though Zoe tells him to stay there he comes home infecting the town with the bug. Zoe tries calling Wade and when he doesn’t answer begins to get worried. She finally finds him at home sick in bed with the flu. She tells him she wasn’t worried about him cheating but that she was calling because she missed him. She later shows up with soup saying that she knows he can take care of himself but couples take care of each other. Zoe ends up getting sick and Wade takes care of her.

With the community still recovering from the flu epidemic Zoe is swamped at work leaving less time for her and Wade. Wade manages to get a hunting cabin for the weekend and asks Zoe to go with him. Zoe asks Brick and they have a competition resulting in Zoe losing. Since Brick’s nephew is in town he covers for Zoe so she can go with Wade for their romantic weekend. While Zoe is there she is constantly distracted with work and other people’s problems neglecting her weekend with Wade. Wade and Zoe get in a fight over her being distracted and she says that Wade wouldn’t know anything about a career as he doesn’t have one. Zoe goes to see Wade to apologize about what she said and Wade tells her he still wants to open up his own bar. When they fianlly have some alone time they are interupted by Lavon. The episode ends with Zoe, Lavon and Wade on a couch while listening to Lavon’s troubles they are holding hands. (Take Me Home, Country Roads)

Wade is trying to win money at a Battle of the Bands to open up his bar. Zoe wants to be supportive but hates his band’s music which hurts Wade. Later Zoe apologizes and shows her support for his dream by giving him a glowing sign for his new bar. Wade gets extremely drunk after Zoe leaves to help Lavon and sabatoges his chance at getting his bar. He is worried that he will let her and everybody down if he doesn’t succeed. (The Gambler)

Zoe is worried when Wade doesn’t return her phone calls and learns that Wade was with another woman. Zoe finally meets up with Wade and Wade just said that it was woman that needed a jump for her car. However, Wade’s ex-wife Tansy reveals that Wade used that excuse on her. After Wanda’s and Tom’s wedding (when Wade realizes he needs to tell her), Zoe reveals after the emotional ceremony that she knows about his affair. Zoe and Wade walk so that they can talk outside in the town square before the reception. Wade admits the true nature of the previous night’s events (that he slept with another woman). Zoe tells Wade that she is sorry for thinking that she could make Wade be somebody different than he was.

Zoe, in a very emotional and affected state, sleeps with Wade at the conclusion of the episode so she can ‘feel better’. This comes almost immediatly after declaring her feelings for George who is angered by her outburst. (I’m Moving On)

Wade and Zoe are seen in the same bed in a fantasy dream sequence. After Zoe wakes up she assumes for seconds that is all it is: a dream. Wade emerges from the bathroom shirtless as George comes in to talk to Zoe and immediately turns and leaves. Wade appears to look very amused/happy by the whole situation. Later Wade assumes that Zoe and he are now back into a casual sex relationship. Adopting his old personality, he visits Zoe with a six pack of beer which makes her finally decide that she needs to leave Bluebell for a while to clarify what exactly she is feeling and for whom.

Rejected, Wade assumed that any further relationship is over with Zoe. While driving with Lemon to meet with Gloriana, a conversation with Lemon (under protest) makes him decide to want to talk to Zoe… immediately abandoning the meeting with Gloriana. Encountering Zoe and Jonah at a diner , Zoe and Wade walk nearby to a field to discuss their relationship.

Zoe Hart: Well, as a woman of science, I figure I should probably see if there’s any truth to it.

Wade Kinsella: Makes sense. As it turns out, I happen to have one of these happiness machines to play your so-called “video game.” Want me tofire it up?

Zoe Hart: Well, if you want to.

Wade Kinsella: You know, I’ve actually read new studies, that say that a strip version of the game makes people even happier.

Zoe Hart: Really? Strip Halo? I don’t know. Sounds pretty complicated.

Wade Kinsella: Not really. I think you’d get the hang of it.

Zoe Hart: Well, you are the expert so, I guess we have to try.

(Suspicious Minds)

Zoe Hart:Look, I’m not asking you to be my boyfriend or anything, but I was wondering if maybe you could do casual my way, which means being monogomous … casually.

Wade Kinsella: Yeah, I think I could do that.

Zoe Hart: You know what monogomous means right? No hot blondes. No socks on the door.

Wade Kinsella: Just to be clear, the blonde who was here last night, that was Missy from Ace Bulding Supply. She was dropping off the tile for your bathroom. And as for the Sock, well, I hung it up after I stepped in racoon crap.

Offering the Presidency of Israel to Albert Einstein

Chaim Weizmann, Israels first president, died on November 9, 1952. The Foreign Ministry was asked to assist in finding candidates and Ambassador to the United States Abba Eban approached Albert Einstein to ask if he would accept the offer to serve as president of Israel. In his letter to the professor, Eban wrote that he was acting at the instructions of Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. He added that acceptance would require relocation to Israel and acceptance of Israeli nationality, but in appreciation of the importance and scope of his work he would be offered freedom to continue his scientific activity. Upon receiving the invitation, Einstein replied in handwriting in English and German. Below is the exchange of letters. Embassy of IsraelNovember 17, 1952 Dear Professor [Albert] Einstein: The bearer of this letter is Mr. David Goitein of Jerusalem who is now serving as Minister at our Embassy in Washington. He is bringing you the question which Prime Minister Ben Gurion asked me to convey to you, namely, whether you would accept the Presidency of Israel if it were offered you by a vote of the Knesset. Acceptance would entail moving to Israel and taking its citizenship. The Prime Minister assures me that in such circumstances complete facility and freedom to pursue your great scientific work would be afforded by a government and people who are fully conscious of the supreme significance of your labors. Mr. Goitein will be able to give you any information that you may desire on the implications of the Prime Minister’s question. Whatever your inclination or decision may be, I should be deeply grateful for an opportunity to speak with you again within the next day or two at any place convenient for you. I understand the anxieties and doubts which you expressed to me this evening. On the other hand, whatever your answer, I am anxious for you to feel that the Prime Minister’s question embodies the deepest respect which the Jewish people can repose in any of its sons. To this element of personal regard, we add the sentiment that Israel is a small State in its physical dimensions, but can rise to the level of greatness in the measure that it exemplifies the most elevated spiritual and intellectual traditions which the Jewish people has established through its best minds and hearts both in antiquity and in modern times. Our first President, as you know, taught us to see our destiny in these great perspectives, as you yourself have often exhorted us to do. Therefore, whatever your response to this question, I hope that you will think generously of those who have asked it, and will commend the high purposes and motives which prompted them to think of you at this solemn hour in our people’s history. With cordial wishes,Abba Eban I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel [to serve as President], and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it. All my life I have dealt with objective matters, hence I lack both the natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people and to exercise official functions. For these reasons alone I should be unsuited to fulfill the duties of that high office, even if advancing age was not making increasing inroads on my strength. I am the more distressed over these circumstances because my relationship to the Jewish people has become my strongest human bond, ever since I became fully aware of our precarious situation among the nations of the world.

Behind the Series | Daniel Silva

In 2000, after publishingThe Marching Season, the second book in the Michael Osbourne series, I decided it was time for a change. We were nearing the end of the Clinton administration, and the president was about to embark on a final, last-ditch effort to bring peace to the Middle East. I had the broad outlines of a story in mind. It was the story of a hard-line Palestinian terrorist who wanted to torpedo the peace process by carrying out a wave of high-profile attacks in Europe and America. And it was the story of an Israeli assassin and intelligence officer who would be given the assignment of stopping him. The Palestinian would be called Tariq al-Hourani. The Israeli, as yet, had no name, and I thought long and hard before giving him one. I wanted it to be biblical, like my own. I finally decided to name him after the archangel Gabriel. It is a beautiful name, and it is filled with much religious and historical symbolism. Gabriel is the mightiest of Gods angels and His most important messenger. He is the prince of fire and the guardian of Israel. And, perhaps most important, Gabriel is the angel of revenge. I decided that Gabriels last name should short, simple, and somewhat neutral: Allon. In Hebrew, it means oak tree. I liked the image it conveyed, for Gabriel Allon was definitely solid as an oak. Unlike the archangel Gabriel, who is said to reside at the right hand of God, Gabriel Allon the man was born in a small, dusty agricultural town in the Jezreel Valley of Israel. His parents were German Holocaust survivors and spoke German at home. As a result, young Gabriels first language was German rather than Hebrew, and German remains the language of his dreams to this day. We know little about Gabriels father, other than the fact that he was killed during the Six-Day War in 1967. His mother, Irene, was the far more dominant force in his life. The daughter of Viktor Frankel, a well-known German expressionist painter who was murdered at Auschwitz in 1942, she was one of the most important painters in the young State of Israel. Gabriel inherited his mothers artistic talent and, after completing his mandatory service in the Israeli army, entered the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israels national school of art. He was studying there in September 1972, when Palestinian terrorists kidnapped and murdered eleven Israeli athletes and coaches at the Olympic Games in Munich, Germany. A week after the massacre, a man came to Bezalel to see Gabriel. He was a small, wiry figure with hands that looked as though they had been borrowed from someone twice his size and teeth that looked like a steel trap. His name was Ari Shamron, and he was about to forever change the course of young Gabriels life. Ari Shamron was a legendary operative in the Israeli secret service whose exploits included the 1960 capture of Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Final Solution. On that day in September 1972, he had just been given a new assignment by Prime Minister Golda Meir: to hunt down and kill the Black September terrorists responsible for the massacre in Munich, many of whom were living openly in Europe. To carry out that task, he needed a young man who could move around the continent without attracting unwanted attention. He needed a young man who could speak a European language and who had the emotional coldness necessary to kill many men at close quarters. He chose the child of Holocaust survivors who still spoke German in his dreams. After undergoing a month of intense training, Gabriel was sent to Rome, where he killed a man named Wadal Abdel Zwaiter, Black Septembers chief of operations in Italy. Over the next three years, Gabriel would kill five more terrorists, all at close range with a .22 caliber Beretta. In 1975, when returned to Israel at the end of the mission, his appearance had changed dramatically. He looked much older than his twenty-five years and his hair had gone to gray at his templessmudges of ash on the prince of fire, as Shamron liked to say. Haunted by the faces of the men whom he had killed, Gabriel found he could no longer paint. With Shamrons help, he settled in Venice under an assumed identity and served an apprenticeship with master art restorer Umberto Conti. For the next fifteen years, he lived exclusively in Europe, restoring paintings under the name Mario Delvecchio and carrying out assassinations for the State of Israel. In 1991, at the beginning of the first Gulf War, he was tracking the movements of a terrorist in Vienna when a concealed bomb exploded in his car, killing his young son and grievously wounding his wife, Leah. The terrorist who carried out the attack was named Tariq al-Hourani, the man whom Gabriel would be assigned to kill nine years later. The story of that assignment is told inThe Kill Artist, which was supposed to be the first and only Gabriel Allon novel. I never liked the title. In fact, I loath it to this day. It was forced on me by an editor I otherwise adored because he didnt like the title I had placed on the manuscript, which wasPrince of Fire. Despite the title, the book was an instantNew York Timesbestseller. When I moved to Putnam in 2001, the legendary publisher Phyllis Grann suggested that I turn Gabriel into a continuing character. I thought it was a terrible idea, and I told her so. I felt there was too much anti-Semitism in the world, and far too much hatred of Israel, to make a continuing Israeli character palatable to a mass audience. She told me I was wrong and ordered me to get to work on the follow-up. It was calledThe English Assassin, and it sold nearly twice as many copies asThe Kill Artist. The next book,The Confessor, sold even more. In fact, each of the novels as sold more than its predecessor. For the record, Phyllis Grann was right, and I was wrong. I am asked often whether it is necessary to read the novels in order. The answer is no, but it probably doesnt hurt. For the record, the order of publication is as follows:The Kill Artist,The English Assassin,The Confessor,A Death in Vienna,Prince of Fire,The Messenger,The Secret Servant, andMoscow Rules. The stories follow a familiar pattern fans of the series have come to expect: Gabriel is drawn out of retirement or seclusion, usually by a murder or some other act of violence, and soon finds himself at the center of a fast-paced, swirling international adventure. Several memorable sub-characters appear throughout the series: Eli Lavon, the surveillance artist and Gabriels old friend from the Black September operation; Uzi Navot, the chief of the Special Operations directorate who forever toils in Gabriels shadow; Julian Isherwood, the London art dealer and volunteer helper of Israeli intelligence who provides legitimate work for Gabriels cover; Adrian Carter, the deputy director of the CIA; and, of course, Ari Shamron, the legendary former chief of Israeli intelligence who refuses to allow Gabriel to live in peace. The series contains two internal trilogies. The first consists ofThe English Assassin,The Confessor, andA Death in Viennaand explores what I call the unfinished business of the Holocaust.The English Assassindeals with Nazi art looting and the actions of Switzerland during the Second World War.The Confessorwrestles with the role of the Roman Catholic Church during the Holocaust and the actions, or lack thereof, of Pope Pius XII.A Death in Viennatells the story of Gabriels quest to bring justice to a Nazi war criminal, a man whom his mother encountered during the Death March from Auschwitz in January 1945. It remains my favorite. The second internal trilogy consists ofPrince of Fire,The Messenger, andThe Secret Servantand deals with the question of terrorism in the modern world.Prince of Fireexplores the roots of Palestinian terrorism through a story of revenge,The Messengertakes a hard look at the role Saudi Arabia played in creating al-Qaeda and its affiliates, andThe Secret Servantsurveys the rise of militant Islam in Europe. Moscow Rules, the eighth book in the series, finds Gabriel on assignment in the New Russia. He has changed much since we first met him. He is a bit older, much wiser, and his cover has been blown many times over. He is a friend of both the American president and the Pope, and moves at the highest levels of Western intelligence in London and Washington. He has returned to Europe and resides now on a secluded estate in Umbria, where he restores paintings in secret for the Vatican Picture Gallery. After many years of dithering, he has finally come to his senses and married Chiara Zolli, a beautiful Venetian Jew whom he first met during the course ofThe Confessor. Like Gabriel, Chiara works as an undercover operative for Israeli intelligence. She is interested in starting a family. Gabriel, who lost one family to his enemies, is not at all sure hes capable of having another. As for his first wife, Leah, she resides now in a psychiatric hospital on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, locked in a prison of memory. From her favorite spot in the hospitals garden, she can see across Jerusalem to the spot on the Mount of Olives, where her only son is buried. Gabriels encounters with Leah are some of the most touching and memorable scenes in the series. They are also highly symbolic. Scarred by fire, Leah resembles a canvas that has suffered significant paint losses. She is the one thing Gabriel cannot restore. She is the price he has paid for a life spent battling the forces of evila life that began one day in September 1972, when a man named Ari Shamron came to the Bezalel Academy of Fine Art and Design and asked a gifted young painter to lay down his brushes and pick up a gun instead.

Lavon Affair – The Full Wiki

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Lavon Affair refers to the scandal over a failed Israeli covert operation in Egypt known as Operation Susannah, in which Israeli military intelligence planted bombs in Egyptian, American and British-owned targets in Egypt in the summer of 1954 in the hopes that “the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communists, ‘unspecified malcontents’ or ‘local nationalists'” would be blamed.[1] It became known as the Lavon Affair after the Israeli defense minister Pinhas Lavon, who was forced to resign because of the incident, or euphemistically as the Unfortunate Affair (Hebrew: , HaEsek HaBish). In 2005, Israeli President Moshe Katzav honored the nine Egyptian Jewish agents who were involved.[2] In the early 1950s the United States initiated a more activist policy toward Egypt often in contrast with British policies. Israel feared that this policy, which encouraged Britain to withdraw its military forces from the Suez Canal, would embolden Egyptian President Nasser’s military ambitions towards Israel. Israel first sought to influence this policy through diplomatic means but was frustrated.[3] In the summer of 1954 Colonel Binyamin Gibli, the chief of Israel’s military intelligence, Aman, initiated Operation Suzannah in order to reverse that decision. The goal of the Operation was to carry out bombings and other acts of violence in Egypt with the aim of creating an atmosphere in which the British and American opponents of British withdrawal from Egypt would be able to gain the upper hand and block the withdrawal. According to historian Shabtai Teveth, who wrote one of the more detailed accounts, the assignment was “To undermine Western confidence in the existing [Egyptian] regime by generating public insecurity and actions to bring about arrests, demonstrations, and acts of revenge, while totally concealing the Israeli factor. The team was accordingly urged to avoid detection, so that suspicion would fall on the Muslim Brotherhood, the Communists, ‘unspecified malcontents’ or ‘local nationalists’.”[1] The top-secret cell, Unit 131, which was to carry out the operation, had existed since 1948 and under Aman since 1950. At the time of Operation Susannah, Unit 131 was the subject of a bitter dispute between Aman {military intelligence} and Mossad {national intelligence agency} over who should control it. Unit 131 operatives had been recruited several years before, when the Israeli intelligence officer Avram Dar arrived in Cairo undercover as a British citizen of Gibraltar called John Darling. He had recruited several Egyptian Jews who had previously been active in illegal emigration activities and trained them for covert operations. Aman decided to activate the network in the spring of 1954. On July 2, they firebombed a post office in Alexandria, and on July 14, they bombed the U.S. Information Agency libraries in Alexandria and Cairo and a British-owned theater. The homemade bombs, consisting of bags containing acid placed over nitroglycerine, were inserted into books, and placed on the shelves of the libraries just before closing time. Several hours later, as the acid ate through the bags, the bombs would explode. They did little damage to the targets and caused no injuries or deaths. Before the group began Israeli agent Avraham Seidenberg (Avri Elad) was sent to oversee the operations. Seidenberg assumed the identity of Paul Frank, a former SS officer with Nazi underground connections. Avraham Seidenberg allegedly informed the Egyptians resulting in the Egyptian Intelligence Service following a suspect to his target, the Rio Theatre, where a fire engine was standing by. Egyptian authorities arrested this suspect, Philip Natanson, when his bomb accidentally ignited prematurely in his pocket. Having searched his apartment, they found incriminating evidence and names of accomplices to the operation. Several suspects were arrested, including Egyptian Jews and undercover Israelis. Colonel Dar and Seidenberg had managed to escape. One suspect {Yosef Carmon} was tortured to death in prison and Hungarian born Israeli Meir Max Bineth committed suicide. The trial began on December 11 and lasted until January 27, 1955; two of the accused (Moshe Marzouk and Shmuel Azar) were condemned to execution by hanging and two acquitted with the rest receiving lengthy prison terms. The trial was widely criticized as a show trial, and there were allegations that evidence had been extracted by torture.[4] Two of the imprisoned operatives, Meir Meyuhas and Meir Za’afran, were released in 1962, after having served seven year jail sentences. The rest were eventually freed in February 1968, in a secret addendum to a prisoner of war exchange. Soon after the affair, Mossad chief Isser Harel expressed suspicion to Aman concerning the integrity of Avraham Seidenberg. Despite his concerns, Aman continued using Seidenberg for intelligence operations until 1956, when he was caught trying to sell Israeli documents to the Egyptians. Seidenberg was tried and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. In 1980, Harel publicly revealed evidence that Seidenberg had been turned by the Egyptians even before Operation Suzannah. In meetings with prime minister Moshe Sharett, secretary of defense Pinhas Lavon denied any knowledge of the operation. When intelligence chief Gibli contradicted Lavon, Sharrett commissioned a board of inquiry consisting of Israeli Supreme Court Justice Isaac Olshan and the first chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces, Yaakov Dori that was unable to find conclusive evidence that Lavon had authorized the operation. Lavon tried to fix the blame on Shimon Peres, who was the secretary general of the defense ministry, and Gibli for insubordination and criminal negligence. Sharett resolved the dilemma by siding with Peres, who along with Moshe Dayan testified against Lavon, after which Lavon resigned. Former prime minister David Ben-Gurion succeeded Lavon as minister of defense. A short time later, Sharett, who did not know about the operation in advance, and who had strongly denied Israel’s involvement, resigned as Prime Minister and was replaced by Ben-Gurion. In April 1960, a review of minutes from the inquiry found inconsistencies and possibly a fraudulent document in Gibli’s original testimony that seemed to support Lavon’s account of events. During this time, it also came to light that Seidenberg (the Israeli agent running Operation Suzannah in Egypt), had committed perjury during the original inquiry. Seidenberg was also suspected of betraying the group to Egyptian authorities; though the charges were never proven, he was eventually sentenced to a jail term of 10 years. Ben-Gurion scheduled closed hearings with a new board of inquiry chaired by Chaim Cohen, a supreme court justice. This inquiry found that the perjury indeed had been committed, and that Lavon had not authorized the operation. Sharett and Levi Eshkol tried to issue a statement that would placate both Lavon and those who had opposed him. Ben-Gurion refused to accept the compromise and viewed it as a divisive play within the Mapai party. After another investigative committee sided with the Cohen inquiry, Ben-Gurion resigned from his post as defense minister. This led to the expulsion of Lavon from the Histadrut labor union and an early call for new elections which changed the political structure in Israel. It should be noted that the specifics of Operation Susannah were not public at the time of the political upheaval. Operation Suzannah and the Lavon Affair turned out to be disastrous for Israel in several ways: In March 2005, Israel publicly honored the surviving operatives, and President Moshe Katsav presented each with a certificate of appreciation for their efforts on behalf of the state, ending decades of official denial by Israel.[2]

The LAVON AFFAIR – Russia Channel Discussion Forum

The Lavon AffairBy David Hirst, Excerpts from his book: The Gun and the Olive Branch, 1977, 1984, Futura Publications In July 1954 Egypt was plagued by a series of bomb outrages directed mainly against American and British property in Cairo and Alexandria. It was generally assumed that they were the work of the Moslem Brothers, then the most dangerous challenge to the still uncertain authority of Colonel (later President) Nasser and his two-year-old revolution. Nasser was negotiating with Britain over the evacuation of its giant military bases in the Suez Canal Zone, and, the Moslem Brothers, as zealous nationalists, were vigorously opposed to any Egyptian compromises. It therefore came as a shock to world, and particularly Jewish opinion, when on 5 October the Egyptian Minister of the Interior, Zakaria Muhieddin, announced the break-up of a thirteen-man Israeli sabotage network. An ‘anti-Semitic’ frame-up was suspected. Indignation increased when, on 11 December, the group was brought to trial. In the Israeli parliament, Prime Minister Moshe Sharett denounced the ‘wicked plot hatched in Alexandria … the show trial which is being organized there against a group of Jews who have fallen victims to false accusations and from who mit seems attempts are being made to extract confessions of imaginary crimes, by threats and torture . . .’49 The trade union newspaper Davar observed that the Egyptian regime ‘seems to take its inspiration from the Nazis’ and lamented the ‘deterioration in the status of Egyptian Jews in general’.50 For Haaretz the trial ‘proved that the Egyptian rulers do not hesitate to invent the most fantastic accusations if it suits them’; it added that ‘in the present state of affairs in Egypt the junta certainly needs some diversions’.51 And the next day the .7erusalem Post carried this headline: ‘Egypt Show Trial Arouses Israel, Sharett Tells House. Sees Inquisition Practices Revived.’ The trial established that the bombings had indeed been carried out by an Israeli espionage and terrorist network. This was headed by Colonel Avraharn Dar –alias John Darling– and a core of professionals who had set themselves up in Egypt under various guises. They had recruited a number of Egyptian Jews; one of them was a young woman, Marcelle Ninio, who worked in the offices of a British company. Naturally, the eventual exposure of such an organization was not going to improve the lot of the vast majority of Egyptian Jews who wanted no-thing to do with Zionism. There were still at least 50,000 Jews in Egypt; there had been something over 60,000 in 1947, more than half of whom were actually foreign nationals. During the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948, the populace had some times vented its frustration against them, and some were killed in mob violence or by terrorist bombs. In spite of this, and of the revolutionary upheaval which followed four years later, few Jews-including the foreign nationals-left the country, and fewer still went to Israel. A Jewish journalist insisted: ‘We, Egyptian Jews, feel secure in our homeland, Egypt.’52 The welfare of Oriental Jewry in their various homelands was, as we have seen, Israel’s last concern. And in July 1954 it had other worries. It was feeling isolated and insecure. Its Western friends-let alone the rest of the world-were unhappy about its aggressive behaviour. The US Assistant Secretary of State advised it to ‘drop the attitude of the conqueror’.53 More alarming was the rapprochement under way between Egypt, on the one hand, and the United States and Britain on the other. President Eisenhower had urged Britain to give up her giant military base in the Suez Canal Zone; Bengurion had failed to dissuade her. It was to sabotage this rapprochement that the head of Israeli intelligence, Colonel Benyamin Givli, ordered his Egyptian intelligence ring to strike. Givli’s boss, Defence Minister Pinhas Lavon, and the Prime Minister, Moshe Sharett, knew nothing of the operation. For Givli was a member of a powerful Defence Ministry clique which often acted independently, or in outright defiance, of the cabinet. They were proteges of Bengurion and, although ‘The Old Man’ had left the Premiership for Sde Boker, his Negev desert retreat, a few months before, he was able, through them, to perpetuate the hardline ‘activist’ policies in which he believed. On Givli’s instructions, the Egyptian network was to plant bombs in American and British cultural centres, British-owned cinemas and Egyptian public buildings. The Western powers, it was hoped, would conclude that there was fierce internal opposition to the rapprochement and that Nasser’s young r6gime,faced with this challenge, was not one in which they could place much confidence.54 Mysterious violence might therefore persuade both London and Washington that British troops should remain astride the Canal; the world had not forgotten Black Saturday, 28 January 1951, in the last year of King Farouk’s reign, when mobs rampaged through downtown Cairo, setting fire to foreign-owned hotels and shops, in which scores of people, including thirteen Britons, died. The first bomb went off, on 2 July, in the Alexandria post office. On 11 July, the Anglo-Egyptian Suez negotiations, which had been blocked for nine months, got under way again. The next day the Israeli embassy in London was assured that, up on the British evacuation from Suez, stock-piled arms would not be handed over to the Egyptians. But the Defence Ministry activists were unconvinced. On 14 July their agents, in clandestine radio contact with Tel Aviv, fire-bombed US Information Service libraries in Cairo and Alexandria. That same day, a phosphorous bomb exploded prematurely in the pocket of one Philip Natanson, nearly burning him alive, as he was about to enter the British-owned Rio cinema in Alexandria. His arrest and subsequent confession led to the break-up of the whole ring-but not before the completion of another cycle of clandestine action and diplomatic failure. On 15 July President Eisenhower assured the Egyptians that ‘simultaneously’ with the signing of a Suez agreement the United States would enter into ‘firm commitments’ for economic aid to strengthen their armed forces.55 On 23 July –anniversary of the 1952 revolution– the Israeli agents still at large had a final fling; they started fires in two Cairo cinemas, in the central post office and the railway station. On the same day, Britain announced that the War Secretary, Antony Head, was going to Cairo. And on 27 July he and the Egyptians initiated the ‘Heads of Agreement’ on the terms of Britain’s evacuation. The trial lasted from 11 December to 3 January. Not all the culprits were there, because Colonel Dar and an Israeli colleague managed to escape, and the third Israeli, Hungarian-born Max Bennett, committed suicide; but those who were present all pleaded guilty. Most of them, including Marcelle Ninio, were sentenced to various terms of imprisonment. But Dr Musa Lieto Marzuk, a Tunisian-born citizen of France who was a surgeon at the Jewish Hospital in Cairo, and Samuel Azar, an engineering professor from Alexandria, were condemned to death. In spite of representations from France, Britain and the United States the two men were hanged. Politically, it would have been very difficult for Nasser to spare them, for only seven weeks before six Moslem Brothers had been executed for complicity in an attempt on his life. Nevertheless Israel reacted with grief and anger. So did some Western Jews. Marzuk and Azar ‘died the death of martyrs’, said Sharett on the same day in the Knesset, whose members stood in silent tribute. Israel went into official mourning the following day. Beersheba and Ramat Gan named streets after the executed men. Israeli delegates to the Egyptian-Israeli Mixed Armistice Commission refused to attend its meeting, declaring that they would not sit down with representatives of the Cairo junta. In New York there were bomb threats against the Egyptian consulate and a sniper fired four shots into its fourth-floor window.56 This whole episode, which was to poison Israeli political life for a decade and more, came to be known as the ‘Lavon Affair’, for it had been established in the Cairo trial that Lavon, as Minister of Defence, had approved the campaign of sabotage. At least so the available evidence made it appear. But in Israel, Lavon had asked Moshe Sharett for a secret inquiry into a matter about which the cabinet knew nothing. Benyamin Givli, the intelligence chief, claimed that the so-called ‘security operation’ had been authorized by Lavon himself. Two other Bengurion proteges, Moshe Dayan and Shimon Peres, testified against Lavon. Lavon denounced Givli’s papers as forgeries and demanded the resignation of all three men. Instead, Sharett ordered Lavon himself to resign and invited Bengurion to come out of retirement and take over the Defence Ministry. It was a triumphant comeback for the ‘activist’ philosophy whose excesses both Sharett and Lavon had tried to modify. It was con-summated, a week later, by an unprovoked raid on Gaza, which left thirty-nine Egyptians dead and led to the Suez War Of 1956.57 When the truth about the Lavon Affair came to light, six years after the event, it confirmed that there had been a frame-up-not, however, by the Egyptians, but by Bengurion and his young proteges. Exposure was fortuitous. Giving evidence in a forgery trial in September 1960, a witness divulged on passant that he had seen the faked signature of Lavon on a document relating to a 1954 ‘security mishap’.58 Bengurion immediately announced that the three-year statute of limitations prohibited the opening of the case. But Lavon, now head of the powerful Histradut Trade Union Federation, seized upon this opportunity to demand an inquiry. Bengurion did everything in his power to stop it, but his cabinet overruled him. The investigation revealed that the security operation’ had been planned behind Lavon’s back. His signature had been forged, and the bombing had actually begun long before his approval –which he withheld– had been sought. He was a scapegoat pure and simple. On Christmas Day 1960,the Israeli cabinet unanimously exonerated him of all guilt in the ‘disastrous security adventure in Egypt’; the Attorney General had, in the meantime, found ‘conclusive evidence of forgeries as well as false testimony in an earlier inquiry’.59 Bengurion was enraged. He issued an ultimatum to the ruling Labour party to remove Lavon, stormed out of a cabinet meeting and resigned. In what one trade unionist described as ‘an immoral and unjust submission to dictatorship’, his diehard supporters in the Histradut swung the vote in favour i)f accepting Lavon’s resignation. Lavon, however, won a moral victory over the man who twice forced him from office. In the streets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, students demonstrated in his favour. They carried placards reading: ‘Bengurion Go to Sde Boker, Take Dayan and Peres with You. We do Not Accept Leaders with Elastic Consciences.’60 The affair rocked the ruling establishment, split public opinion, forced new elections and contributed largely to Bengurion’s eventual disappearance from public life. But Lavon was not the only real victim. There were also those misguided Egyptian Jews who paid with their lives or long terms of imprisonment. It is true that when, in 1968, Marcelle Ninio and her colleagues were exchanged for Egyptian’ prisoners in Israel, they received a heroes’ welcome. True, too, that when Miss Ninio got married Prime Minister Golda Meir, Defence Minister Dayan and Chief of Staff General Bar Lev all attended the wedding and Dayan told the bride ‘the Six-Day War was success enough that it led to your freedom’.61 However, after spending fourteen years in an Egyptian prison, the former terrorists did not share the leadership’s enthusiasm. When Ninio and two of her colleagues appeared on Israel television a few years later, they all expressed the belief that the reason why they were not released earlier was because Israel made little effort to get them out. ‘Maybe they didn’t want us to come back,’ said Robert Dassa. ‘There was so much intrigue in Israel. We were instruments in the hands of the Egyptians and of others … and what is more painful after all that we went through is that this continues to be so.’ In Ninio’s opinion, ‘the government didn’t want to spoil its relations with the United States and didn’t want the embarrassment of admitting it was behind our action’.62 But the real victims were the great mass of Egyptian Jewry. Episodes like the Lavon Affair tended to identify them, in the mind of ordinary Egyptians, with the Zionist movement. When, in 1956, Israeli invaded and occupied Sinai, feeling ran high against them. The government, playing into the Zionist hands, began ordering Jews to leave the country. Belatedly, reluctantly, 21,000 left in the following year; more were expelled later, and others, their livelihood gone, had nothing to stay for. But precious few went to Israel. NOTES 49.

Zoe and Wade | Hart of Dixie Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia

The relationship between Zoe Hart and Wade Kinsella began taking wing Zoe’s very first day in Bluebell, when she moved into the carriage house on the Mayor’s Plantation, She loved Wade’s home, the gatehouse. They are portaded by Rachel Bilson and Wilson Bethel. Neighbors, Zoe and Wade have had an obvious attraction to one another from the very beginning- even at their first meeting when an irate Zoe burst into Wade’s house, and Wade insisted if she couldn’t be polite he wouldn’t help her find the fusebox. This attraction resulted in a late-night hook-up in Wade’s car on Zoe’s second night in Bluebell- a hook-up Zoe cut short when she accidentally hit the horn in Wade’s car, effectively “playing Dixie with her butt” and was sure she had hit rock bottom. (Pilot) “What are you doing?” – Zoe Hart “You were freaking out. I thouyyight I’d snap you out of it with my generic beer breath.” – Wade Kinsella Wade was amused with Zoe’s attitude, and sure to play into it any chance he got. Zoe, on the other hand, was not so amused with Wade, and even called him “the most irresponsible person I’ve ever met” after he disappeared while supposed to be working with her on getting Lavon’s float ready for the Founder’s Day Parade. A frustrated Zoe lit into Wade, freaking out, until Wade stopped her short with a kiss, which Zoe responded to before pulling away suddenly. (Parades & Pariahs) First rule of a snakebite, Doc. Can’t let the victim exert herself. – Wade Kinsella What’s the second rule, apply pressure to side of boob? Put me down! – Zoe Hart Wade offered Zoe his help on several occasions- fixing the fusebox, driving her to the old Hooper House so she could investigate a snake, carrying her into the doctor’s after she was bitten by the snake, and offering to help her with his Uncle Mo’s recipe for the Gumbo Cook-off. However, Zoe never warmed up to the idea of receiving help from Wade, insisting that “For the four hundredth time, I do not need your advice, your help, or your Alabama lovin'”. Despite her refusal, Wade, knowing her chances in the Cook-Off, entered his own gumbo under her name without her knowledge, winning a very surprised and confused Zoe second prize in the contest. (Gumbo & Glory) When the 2011 heat wave set in, Zoe’s attraction to Wade became difficult for her to ignore, particularly when she was required to stitch up a shirtless Wade’s chest after he injured himself on a fence behind the Rammer Jammer. Forgetting her inhibitions, Zoe went to the Rammer Jammer with the specific intention to hit on Wade, who took some time to catch on to what was happening (“You got a contact lens situation, or…?”)- despite this, the two made plans for later that night. However, when the time came, Zoe apologized to Wade and said she just couldn’t do it, she just wasn’t that kind of girl. (In Havoc & In Heat) Though Zoe passed Wade off early on, considering him irresponsible and refusing his help, she continued to see different sides of him she hadn’t expected. For example, when she first learned about Wade’s father. At first, Wade’s seeming indifference to his father’s health infuriated Zoe, who thought him callous and insensitive, and told him so. However, she later found out that Wade’s father, Crazy Earl was the town drunk, whom Wade looked out for, and dutifully helped down from the top of the hardware store from which he threatened to jump each month.(Faith & Infidelity) Gradually, Zoe became less hostile toward Wade and their relationship continued to evolve, and became a genuine kind of friendship. When Zoe ‘s latest crush, Judson, slept with her best friend, Gigi, bringing an abrupt halt to their relationship, Wade was relieved to hear that Zoe hadn’t thought she and Judson were meant to be, and was even able to cheer Zoe up about the situation (Homecoming & Coming Home). Wade also proves to be extremely reluctant to install the new fusebox Lavon bought that would have ended the (literal) power struggle between the carriage and gatehouses , even lying to Lavon about his electrical skills and insisting he wouldn’t know how to install it. However, he doesn’t fool Lavon , who catches on quickly and encourages Wade to be honest with Zoe about his feelings for her. Following Lavon ‘s advice, Wade attempts to do so while driving her to the airport for her return home to New York for Thanksgiving, but the attempt falls through when Zoe changes plans at the last minute and decides to stay in Bluebell. (The Pirate & The Practice) When Zoe begins acting strangely, as well as strangely happy, the whole town is abuzz with curiosity- and Wade is no exception. He nearly goes crazy trying to discover Zoe’s secret, convinced she’s seeing someone and sharing his theories with Lavon Hayes and Shelley Ng. (Mistress & Misunderstandings) When Dr. Judson Lyons makes a reappearance in Zoe’s life, Wade is anything but pleased, and he and Zoe involve themselves in a mini-battle that occupies much of Zoe’s attention during the Sweetie Pie Dance. Ultimately, Judson breaks up with Zoe because of this: “You were more excited about your war with Wade tonight than you were about your night with me. That not tell you everything you need to know?” – Judson Lyons. (Sweetie Pies & Sweaty Palms) “No, I mean why are you with my brother?” – Wade Kinsella Wade later discovers Zoe on a date with his estranged brother, Jesse , when the two show up at George ‘s bachelor party, much to his dismay. However, he tries to deny his feelings for Zoe , and tells his brother he’s free to date her because they’re both snobbish and superior, and would be perfect together- unfortunately, Zoe overhears this exchange. She later confronts Wade , asking if that was what he really thought of her. Wade says yes to this, and continues to point out the three men who have caught her eye since her arrival in Bluebell- a veterinarian , a lawyer , and an eco-geologist oceanographer/army hero – all lucrative careers, and takes off angrily in his truck, leaving behind a surprised and hurt Zoe. Zoe then decides to take a step back from dating Jesse , telling him “I can’t always stay out of people’s business, but when I can I probably should” (Bachelorettes & Bullets). Zoe remains angry at Wade for some time, to Lavon’s exasperation. When Tansy finally convinces Wade to ask Zoe to be his partner for the Bluebell Battle, Zoe thinks his apology and request are some kind of joke. After some consideration, she agrees. During the Battle, she vaguely asks Wade about her situation with George, however Wade misunderstands and believes Zoe may be returning his interest. Excited by this, and by the way he and Zoe are connecting and getting along during the battle , Wade cancels his plans with Tansy. During the final event, Wade attempts to confess his feelings to Zoe, but the pair is interrupted by Rose Hattenbarger. Ultimately, Zoe costs the pair the prize and Wade discovers Zoe’s real intentions for entering the race, angrily telling her that she’s obsessed with getting what she wants and doesn’t care who she hurts along the way and that she needs to wake up: “I cannot believe that I didn’t see this from the beginning. You never wanted to help me. The only thing you wanted was what you always do. Him. And you are…you are so obsessed with getting what you want, you don’t care who you hurt along the way. Well, let me tell you something, Zoe Hart. George Tucker and Lemon Breeland are getting married. That is how this story ends. Why does everyone in this town see that but you?” – Wade Kinsella (The Race & The Relationship) Zoe is later chided by Lavon, because he had told her about Wade’s feelings, and to be careful with how she handled it. Feeling outcast with Lavon and Wade angry at her, Rose in the hospital, and George back together with Lemon, Zoe makes the decision to leave Bluebell . When Lavon breaks the news to Wade that Zoe has plans to leave without telling Wade, his face falls, though he doesn’t say a word. Moments later, Zoe walks into the Plantation to get breakfast with the news that she’s decided not to leave after all.

In the process of saving the baby goat, Zoe gets her shoulder cut and Wade has to stitch her up. They try to kiss, but a policeman comes and takes them back to Bluebell.

Notice how whenever I come around there’s always sparks? Zoe Hart:: If you like that wait ’til you see my tazer. (Gumbo & Glory) Zoe Hart:: Yeah, that’s me, with my girly Wi-Fi connection and my silly cell-phone that I only use to look at pictures of ponies.

Wade Kinsella: You know, I’ve actually read new studies, that say that a strip version of the game makes people even happier. Zoe Hart: Really? Strip Halo? I don’t know. Sounds pretty complicated. Wade Kinsella: Not really. I think you’d get the hang of it. Zoe Hart: Well, you are the expert so, I guess we have to try. Wade Kinsella: Right, ’cause, who doesn’t want to be happy? (If It Makes You Happy) Zoe Hart: Hey tonight, let’s be strangers who meet on a train. Wade Kinsella: Train? Who travels by train anymore? What are we, hobos? Zoe Hart: Yes Wade, we’re hobos.
