West German–Israeli Intelligence and Military Cooperation, 1957–82
This chapter examines and analyses the covert West German-Israeli relations and cooperation in the fields of intelligence and security, and the interests which motivated the two countries to develop such intricate and politically risk-laden cooperation in the years 1957 to 1982. It begins with the first Bundesnachrichtendienst-Mossad contacts, which came in the aftermath of the 1956 Suez War, and ends with Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, in which military technologies developed together by Israel and West Germany played an important role. Security relations between West Germany and Israel were based on two distinctly separate pillars: military cooperation, on the one hand, and intelligence cooperation efforts on the other. These pillars often converged but did not always run parallel.
