Alleged Turkish Mossad spy describes unwitting recruitment, training in Zurich
[IsraelTimes] A Ottoman Turkish man allegedly working for Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency has reportedly described how he was recruited and taken to Switzerland
...home of the Helvetians, famous for cheese, watches, yodeling, and William Tell...
where he was unwittingly trained by Israeli spies on how to encrypt and transfer files.


The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
’s Sabah daily reported on Thursday that 15 men who allegedly spied for Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency were arrested by authorities earlier this month.

Sabah, which is close to Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than there are in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really most important...
, on Friday carried an interview with one of the detainees, whom it identified only by his initials M.A.S.

There has been no official confirmation from Turkey on the arrests and it was not clear how the paper interviewed the man if he had been arrested.

"I met face to face with a Mossad official. He taught me to encrypt files on the laptop," M.A.S. told Sabah.

The man, who has a company that provided consulting services to students coming from abroad to Istanbul, told the paper that he was tasked with monitoring Paleostinians in Turkey. He said he had first been approached by a man claiming to represent an Arab person based in Germany who was interested in studying in Turkey.

The man was initially sent hundreds of euros for providing information on how Paleostinian students entered Ottoman Turkish universities and what kind of support they received from Ottoman Turkish authorities.

He also later claimed to have provided the client with details on a Paleostinian non-governmental organization working in Turkey.

He said he received some $10,000 in exchange for providing information over three years; some of the money was sent via Western Union, and some he was given in an Istanbul market by showing his ID and a receipt.

During this time he was brought to Switzerland to meet with his alleged handlers, receiving a visa sponsored by an organization called the "European Student Guidance Center."

During his all-expenses-paid visit, he met with two separate men, including one who taught him how to encrypt Word files on Protonmail, an email service with end-to-end encryption. Further contact between the two was made through Protonmail, the paper said.

M.A.S. said that during a second visit to Zurich, he met the two men again and another man named "John." After becoming suspicious and asking them if they were intelligence agents, they told him they worked for "an intelligence-like organization with the duty of doing research for EU institutions."

It was not clear when he came to the conclusion that he had been recruited by the Mossad.
