Mossad’s secret assassination history, and more
Today in Tablet Magazine, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Judith Miller uncovers two of Mossad’s past attempts on the life of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the Hamas weapons procurer assassinated in Dubai last month. Al-Mabhouh was in the Israeli spy agency’s cross-hairs both for his 1989 murder of Israeli soldiers and for continued role in Hamas’s arms chain. Morton Landowne introduces and guides us through a slideshow of Israeli artist Andi Arnovitz’s new series of paper coats inspired by famous Jewish women. Book critic Adam Kirsch celebrates the “strangely compelling” collection of letters traded among Viennese Jewish author Elias Canetti, his wife, and his younger brother. And think of The Scroll as letters to you, the reader.
