Melbourne - Ben Zygier was not the only Australian recruited by Mossad, Der Spiegel reported Tuesday.
The report stated that two other Australian native Jews, “Paul Y.” and “David Z.,” were working with Zygier out of a Milan base, which specialized in the sale of satellite communications technology, and a front for the Israel foreign intelligence service Mossad.
According to Der Spiegel, Australian Jews are particularly attractive to the Mossad because of a quirk in the law: Australians are allowed to change their first and last names once a year, a simple way to adopt a new identity
