Mossad Helps Fight Coronavirus

He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him” (Daniel 2:22).

Over 2,600 years ago, Daniel and the intellectual elite of Babylon found their lives in jeopardy. The king had a dream, but no one knew what it was, much less the interpretation thereof. Daniel started a prayer meeting. Verse 23 reads: “I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.”

The dream and the interpretation targeted the Gentile world and Israel. The four Gentile superpowers: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. At the end of the last kingdom, another was added; namely the clay which, based on Jeremiah 18:6 and Isaiah 64:8, are the people of Israel. Yet this final global kingdom will be destroyed. 

King Nebuchadnezzar recognized Daniel’s interpretation, and we read in verse 47: “The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.”

Mossad Helps Fight Coronavirus
A recent article from the New York Times reveals some fascinating details about the spy agency, Mossad. Here are some excerpts:

Mossad officers, primarily associated with covert operations abroad in the name of protecting Israel, are not normally in the business of public health.

Yossi Cohen’s powerful agency, it turns out, has been deeply involved in Israel’s fight against the virus, and has been one of the country’s most valuable assets in acquiring medical equipment and manufacturing technology abroad, according to Israeli medical and security officials.

As countries around the world compete ferociously for limited supplies during the pandemic, they are turning to any help available, and flexing their muscles unapologetically.

In early March, a command and control center was set up to handle the distribution of medical gear across the country, with Mr. Cohen at its head and headquartered at Sheba Medical Center. There were representatives from the Mossad, the Ministry of Defense purchasing division, and the military intelligence’s highly secretive Unit 81, which deals with the development of advanced espionage equipment.

Professor Kreiss, a former brigadier general in the army and a former surgeon general for the military, said the Mossad had been pivotal in helping his institution secure vital medical equipment and expertise from abroad.

“It is only in Israel that the Sheba hospital could have enlisted the help of the Mossad,” he said in an interview. “Can you imagine Mount Sinai Hospital going to the C.I.A. for help?” he added, referring to the New York medical center.

By the end of the first week of April, the people with knowledge of the operations said, Mr. Cohen was confident that Mossad operatives had ensured Israel would possess enough ventilators to cope with the worst forecasts.

There was no time to waste, Professor Kreiss recalled, praising what he described as the single-mindedness of purpose shown by Mossad agents. “Part of their ethos is to execute their task at any price,” he said.

The first shipment acquired abroad by the Mossad arrived in Israel on a special flight on March 19: 100,000 coronavirus testing kits, said an official from the prime minister’s office.

Subsequent shipments included more testing kits, 1.5 million surgical masks, tens of thousands of N-95 masks, protective overalls for first-aid crews, protective goggles and a range of medications, according to a high-ranking official knowledgeable about the Mossad operation.

Using technological expertise brought in by the Mossad, production lines that can produce 25 million protective masks a month are gradually being set up, a high-ranking security official said.

According to one senior Israeli official, the Mossad knew it had to act urgently, with the demand for such equipment expected to grow and with the understanding that countries would eventually refuse to export essential medical products.

The Mossad will almost certainly be remembered for coming to the country’s rescue in an unusual battle against an invisible enemy., 12 April 2020

Typical of Israel and the Mossad, countries from which Israel received the equipment were not identified. This event shows Israel’s uniqueness with the question, “Can you imagine Mt. Sinai Hospital going to the C.I.A. for help?” When there is a need, when there is danger, Israel demonstrates unity.

This is a signpost for Christians to adhere to, as we read in 1 Corinthians 1:10: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”
