This is the now-it-can-be-told story of Elie Cohn, his selection and training, his first missions and connections in Argentina, and eventually his cunning and resourceful actions in Damascus, where he became the intimate of high-ranking army officers and of President Hafez al-Assad himself.
This is a MUST read for anyone interested in the Middle-East, espionage and politics. It provides a fascinating insight into Syria at the very start of Hafez Assad’s reign. This comes from an Israeli perspective, but in my opinion it also shows us into how much Israel has infiltrated the Syrian political scene and how far they have come in making their life easier. Whatsmore, it is a story which needs to be told as I don’t believe any similar story has been published by an Arab or western writer apart from Fouad Ajami’s book The Foreigner’s Gift.

The old Damascus was a city of great mystery; it harbored graveyards, executions, and religious fanaticism. The modern city is no less exotic; its streets are laid out in geometric patterns that serve to direct the 7 million residents who live there to their destinations with unerring accuracy. Grand avenues lead pedestrians and motorists at an even pace through the warren of medieval streets and bazaars which form the old section of town…
When I learned that Elie Cohn had been killed in Damascus, I was in shock. How could I break the news to Nadia? She, his wife, and the mother of their five children–the youngest just 18 months old–was waiting in Israel. We had agreed that I would call her if something happened to her husband. Now what?
When she was growing up in Aleppo, Syria, Nadia lived next door to a family whose husband and wife, Elie and Henriette Cohn, had a daughter Nadia’s age. The families became friends and remained so when the Cohens moved to Haifa in Israel and then to Paris. By 1966 Elie Cohn was working for the Mossad; he was posted to Damascus in December of that year. Nadia visited him there on several occasions. During one visit she saw what she described as an embarrassed or blushing expression on his face when he encountered her at the airport. “I knew something was wrong,” she said later. “He looked uncomfortable.” For two months Cohn did not call his wife in Paris, but finally he telephoned explaining that because of a leak of sensitive information to the Russians, he had been temporarily transferred to Guatemala under another name –Jacob Cohen–and was being kept there under guard by Israeli security agents. He could not write home because his letters might be intercepted and read by Russian agents. His contact would continue to be their Paris representative, who would communicate with her by postcard. On their correspondence Elie signed himself “Yaacov.” In April of 1967 Cohn

Elie Cohn was hanged from a hook in Martyrs’ Square, Damascus, and his body, draped in a white robe, was left hanging for six hours in public view. The execution was carried live, from beginning to end, by Syrian television, and in Israel a pale woman tensely followed every scene, heard every imprecation hurled by the announcer and the frenzied crowd. The woman was Nadia Cohn, the wife of Israel’s greatest spy–a man who had penetrated the highest echelons of the Syrian government so successfully that he was, at the time of his capture, being seriously considered for a minister’s post. This is the now-it-can-be-told story of Elie Cohn, his selection and training, his first missions and connections in Argentina, and eventually his cunning and resourceful actions in Damascus, where he became the intimate of high-ranking army officers and of President Hafez al-Assad himself. There he gained access to some of Syria’s most important military secrets, and what he reported became invaluable to Israel’s security: it helped Israel to win one of the most brilliant victories in the history of warfare in 1967. Today Elie Cohn is a martyr and a legend. His life and brutal death are a symbol of the courageous men behind the scenes in the tense, often vicious, and infinitely subtle and strained relations between Israel and the Arab world.–Adapted from book jacket.
