Are you a very, very wealthy, high-profile individual who wants to maintain personal and/or business dealings on the down low? Or, are you and your friends part of a high-end business where secret dealings, worth billions, must be kept under wraps? Maybe you fall within one or more of these categories and some outside party has been working to undercut your business and/or reputation. Maybe you are part of a wealthy (demographic group) that feels threatened and endangered by outside extremists. You or your group has the money to pay for special protection from or for intelligence on your enemies, but where do you go to purchase such services? It should be obvious, you look no further than former members of Israel’s Mossad. You know, those guys whose motto is: “By way of deception thou shalt wage war.” Do these people actually have businesses you can contact? Well, yes they do, and they can make sure that when you are stressed, for the right amount of money, you too can have your own private Mossad!!!
At least that is what this 7 August 2019 The Times Of Israel article by Shoshanna Solomon titled, “A ‘private Mossad for civilians’ goes world wide to make its clients secure” is talking about. The article continues, “Sabra Intelligence Solutions brings expertise acquired in Israel’s security services to the general population with, it says, a focus on operating ethically.”
By the way, the definition of the Hebrew word ‘Sabra’ means ‘a Jew born in Israel.’ It is in reference to the thorny desert plant, known as the prickly pear, with a thick skin that conceals a sweet, softer interior. It is compared to Israeli Jews, who are supposedly tough on the outside but delicate and sweet on the inside. I’m sure that’s how everyone always thinks about Israeli Jews, or Jews in general, for that matter.
The two year old Sabra Intelligence Solutions, based out of Haifa, was set up by Eran Bachar and his childhood friend Shay Chervinsky. Bachar’s background includes a stint in the military as a paratrooper, as an officer in an Israel Police surveillance unit, and experience with the Shin Bet (Shin Bet’s motto is “Defender that shall not be seen”) and Israel’s domestic security service. During his service he held a variety of classified operational positions. Ultra-Orthodox Chervinsky, who is the company’s CEO, has worked in high-tech and low-tech and brings business skills to the joint venture. The company’s staff is made up of people with extensive experience in operations and training who served in classified intelligence units in the Israeli army, the Israel Police and other Israeli intelligence organizations. Field teams “…often include cyber professionals, lawyers, economists, and in-house psychologists…”
Who generally hires Sabra?
The civilians Chervinsky referred to include not only Jewish communities around the world but also “billionaires” – people who need security services for all kinds of reasons and who are drawn by Israel’s strong security image, as its elite IDF units and Mossad and Shin Bet operations make headlines around the world…These high net-worth individuals – including Russian oligarchs – come to Sabra with their “problems” and are looking to resolve them discreetly and with “creative solutions,” Chervinsky said.
“The teams track and gather information – using, for example, artificial intelligence technologies on security cameras – analyze it to suggest steps that should be taken…The Sabra teams are also employed to find flaws in the security details of known and high-net-worth individuals, following them undercover to spot weak links. The teams operate on the dark web, creating fake personas, to discover plots against clients. They also have undercover agents who contact and develop relationships with targets via so-called “random encounters” to get information needed for clients…”
Sabra goes out of its way to emphasize that they act ethically and above-board in their operations. “The firm employs a legal adviser who checks each operation; its board approves all operations it takes on and a rabbi is called when doubts arise regarding the ethics of a mission…”
There is a very good reason why Sabra emphasizes its ethical behavior, because it is not the only such Israeli security company providing such services. Two other players are Black Cube and the cybersecurity firm NSO Group, and they both have raised questions about the type of operations they have carried out or the type of clients they have taken on in past operations.

Black Cube, created by former Israeli intelligence agents, has drawn international attention for allegedly working to discredit Obama administration officials who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear agreement, as well as to protect the reputation of disgraced #MeToo Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Herzliya-based spyware firm NSO, founded in 2010 by Israelis Shalev Hulio and Omri Lavie, has developed Pegasus, a highly invasive tool that can reportedly switch on a target’s cellphone camera and microphone and access data on it, effectively turning the device into a pocket spy.
International dissidents, journalists (including Israeli journalists) and other opposition figures have complained that repressive governments have used NSO technologies to spy on them. This has led to the filing of lawsuits against the company.
It appears now that the Israeli government, like the US government, has opened a kind of “Pandora’s box” for itself by allowing highly trained government intelligence individuals to enter the private civilian market. Jewish and Shabbos goy lust for money and power always trumps national loyalty with these types of people and they have no qualms in carrying out operations against their own governments as well as operations against the perceived enemies of their own governments. Forgive me if I do not shed any tears over Israeli kvetching about their former intelligence agents turning on Israeli government officials, reporters, etc. What goes around, comes around.
Please watch this very informative, short video interview with German-based news reporter and author of the book The Privatisation of Israeli Security, Shir Hever.
After reading about these private security intelligence companies and watching the video, I have to wonder if at least some of the so-called world “terrorist” events could be being carried out by such companies and privately funded by individuals and organizations with deep pockets.
