Beyond the images of Americans returning from a successful Gulf War, lie secret transactions which have placed a nation in jeopardy. Before the war, Israeli technology, increasing the efficiency of the Scud missile, was shipped to Iraq, Iran and Syria, and an Israeli manufacturer sold the airborne warfare system, TS Mark II, to Iraq via Pakistan to conceal its destination and deceive company employees. Bribe money, intended for Iraqi army officers and supplied by certain Israeli Defense Ministry officials, was pocketed by them. During the Gulf War, Iraqi intelligence threatened to leak information about the payoff, effectively blocking retaliatory action by Israel. "Land of War" describes the events leading to this insane situation. It cites evidence of corruption within the bureaucratic maze that runs through the government of Israel today, as observed and experienced by one of its citizens. The author's intent is to alert the Israeli people to a situation which has placed Israel's security and very existence in danger and to make them aware that certain powerful officials have placed personal gain above the welfare of their country. Abraham Gal was a defense industry engineering contractor in Israel. He is now a journalist living in Southern California.
