His plane was shot down over Germany, but he managed to escape and return to active service. Giladi mentored Ostrovsky for more than 10 years. Early life[ edit ] He was born in Edmonton , Alberta , on November 28, , and he moved to Israel at the age of five. At the age of 17, he joined the Israel Defense Forces IDF after a minor eye condition ended his hopes of becoming a pilot.

After his service with the Military Police, he spent six years in the Israeli Navy. He was selected to attend the Staff and Command School and attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander.

Ostrovsky was placed in charge of all Navy weapons testing. He helped introduce the Harpoon surface-to-surface missile to the Saar missile boats as well as the Vulcan Phalanx anti-missile defense system. In , he says that he left the agency saying it was because of what he considered cases of unnecessarily-malicious actions by Mossad operatives.

His wife, Bella Ostrovsky, died on January 8, , at By Way of Deception[ edit ] In , he published By Way of Deception to draw attention to the corruption and shortcomings that he claims to have witnessed in the Mossad. He has repeatedly argued that intelligence-gathering agencies must be permitted certain operational freedoms but that significantly-increased governmental oversight of espionage activities is necessary.

Without effective oversight, he has said that the Mossad cannot achieve its full potential and value. According to Ostrovsky, if a US senator on a military committee whose "aide was Jewish, he or she would be approached as a sayan," which Ostrovsky later defines as "a volunteer Jewish helper outside Israel" who would then assist Mossad.

However, he was named in a lawsuit by the Israeli government, which claimed that he was part of the Mossad. Critics, such as Benny Morris , have argued that the book is essentially a novel, or in the case of David Wise, that much of it reads like a "supermarket tabloid," and that a case officer would not have had access to so many operational secrets. Ostrovsky also points out that the need-to-know rule was not closely followed in the Mossad because of its small size and the need for case officers to fill many roles.

Shortly before the official publication of the book, the Israeli government filed lawsuits in both Canada and the United States, seeking injunctions against publication. A judge for the Manhattan Supreme Court granted the request at a 1 a. Concerns were expressed by the Israeli government that by exposing certain prior operations, the book endangered the lives of agency personnel. Furthermore, Ostrovsky says the Mossad was privately allowed to see the book before publication to ensure that lives were not placed in danger.

The Other Side of Deception[ edit ] He wrote a sequel, The Other Side of Deception , in which he gives more anecdotes and defends his earlier work with a list of newspaper articles.

Victor Ostrovsky

Jan 27, Rachel rated it liked it This is a troubling book. By Way of Deception, told to Claire Hoy by former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, chronicles not only Ostrovskys four years in training as an agent for Israels elite intelligence agency, but also a variety of related activities occurring both within Israel and throughout the world. Form the picture he paints, it seems that many international crises of the s and 80s involved the Mossad to a much greater extent than anyone even the Israeli government was ever aware. This is a troubling book. Form the picture he paints, it seems that many international crises of the s and 80s involved the Mossad to a much greater extent than anyone — even the Israeli government — was ever aware. That the book is 20 years out of date gives it far less a sense of urgency than it probably once had.
