Was Israel's Prisoner X About To Reveal Mossad's Deepest Secrets?

My Comment: He was arrested as soon as he got back from Australia. That tells me that he must have said something in Australia that was relayed to Mossad .... hence the surprise arrest when he arrived back to Israel. I am guessing right now .... but it appears that Australia has an Israeli mole. As for the case itself, it is providing an incredible insight into how Israeli intelligence operates .... and it is only starting.
