Himself - Interviewer: When recruiting a new agent, what are the risks to you, to the Mossad?
David Arbel: To the Mossad, first that he might be a double agent. Number two, he's a liar. And number three is that he can surrender you which is very dangerous.

Can't fly without wings
19 August 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

A documentary that to some may feel unfulfilled. We have a spy who was quite the figure. Many things remain unknown about his motives, about his believes, about whom he worked for. Or for how many people. What seems pretty clear is that he didn't just jump and try to fly. I think everyone can agree that that would be quite convinient and totally wrong.

But who did it then? One of the many things the documentary tries to reveal. Again there will be a lot of people who are not satisfied with this and what it actually says. I understand people who argue that it goes in circles or repeats certain talking points. It still is done very well over all. Could have been shorter for sure, but don't hold it against it
