The 21st Century Phenomenon


mussalamIslamic StateI.S.I.S -claimed In its latest issue of the Islamic State’s magazine ‘Dabiq’, on 02/12/2015, they capture Jerusalem resident acting as Mossad spy, 19 years old Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam.

The alleged young Jerusalem resident Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam claimed, in an interview to the magazine, to have traveled to Syria to spy for Israeli intelligence. The alleged spy said he is 19-years-old, from Jerusalem, and was enlisted into the the Mossad by a Jewish neighbor who worked as a police officer.

“He came one day and asked me to work with Israeli intelligence,” Said Ismail Musallam said  in the interview. “I told him I would think about it, and then went and asked my father and brother what they thought. They both encouraged me to do it and told me that it was a very good job. They told me there was a lot of money in it, and that you could advance to higher positions. I knew at that point that they themselves were working as spies,”  Musallam said in the interview – its reliability unclear.

According to the young man, he later met with an intelligence officer by the name of Eli who told Said Ismail Musallam of the benefits and good conditions that came along with being a spy for the Mossad.


Said Ismail Musallam claimed that he was trained at ‘Anatawt Training Camp in East Jerusalem and received NIS 5,000 for his participation in the course. He was later paid per mission and said, “In general, the pay would be proportional to the assignment and its level of importance, and the minimum would be 5,000 shekels. The bigger the assignment and the more valuable the information, the more they would pay me and the more bonuses I would receive.”

Said Ismail Musallam said he received a month-long training on self-control and how to survive an interrogation. He also said he was trained to extract information and underwent weapons training.

After completing his training, Said Ismail Musallam was reportedly tasked with turning in weapons dealers, wanted individuals, and seeking out individuals who were attempting to infiltrate into Israel. He was also allegedly tasked with reporting to the Mossad about any operations planned to be carried out in Jerusalem.

After Said Ismail Musallamhad worked as a spy for a while, another officer by the name of Miro offered him to go off on a mission to spy on the Islamic State group in Syria. “They offered me a monthly salary. They would also give me a house, and would take care of any issues I had and any documents I needed, as well as my living needs when I returned,” said Musallam of the offer he was given by the alleged Israeli intelligence officer.

According to Said Ismail Musallam, the Mossad wanted him to report on the Islamic State group’s weapons and rockets cache and their locations. He was also allegedly asked to pass on the locations of Islamic State bases in Syria and the names of Palestinians who left Palestinian territory and went to fight alongside ISIS. Said Ismail Musallam said he entered Syria by way of Turkey with the help of a smuggler whom he contacted by phone.

According to Said Ismail Musallam, he was caught because he “began acting in a manner that was not typical of a muhajir despite the training (he) had received from the Mossad.”. He added he failed to fulfill orders given to him by his “Amir” and then became worried that he would be monitored or punished. Out of fear, the young man called his father, who told his son to come home. “But it was too late, as I was being watched. The mujahidin put me in prison, and moved me from one prison to another. During the interrogations, I confessed I was a spy working as an agent for the Israeli Mossad, and confessed to the things I had done in my country,” Said Ismail Musallam said in the Islamic State group interview.


Israel has not acknowledged the report of the alleged Mossad spy and no statements have been released to confirm or deny the spy’s identity as a former Jerusalem resident.


In interview with the Israeli Ynet news site, Said Ismail Musallam’s brother in East jerusalem said his brother told the family he was going to a firefighting course, but failed to return or make contact; when he finally made contact, he was, surprisingly,  in Syria. “He served in the fire department in East Jerusalem and three months ago he told us he had a firefighting course and that’s why he’ll be gone from home for a few days,” his brother Ahmad Ismail Musallam said. The last time Muhammad contacted the family was a month ago. “He contacted me through Facebook and told me he was in Syria, traveling, feeling good and that everything was okay,” Ahmad added.He and his family denied categorically Said Ismail Musallam was an Israeli spy.   “Now that we’ve seen the images of horror with the Jordanian pilot, we don’t know what to do. I don’t think he’ll return to us,” Ahmad Ismail Musallam concluded.


.An Israeli security official said  to Ynet Said Ismail Musalla traveled to Turkey on 10/24/2014  in order to fighMussalam1t for the Islamic State in Syria.

“He went on his own initiative, without his family’s knowledge,” the official told Reuters. Asked whether his statement constituted a denial that Musallam was an Israeli spy, the official said: “You can understand it that way, yes.”


On 03/110/2015 evening  ISIS distributed a footage  purportedly showing a child executing an ‘Israeli spy.’ Twitter accounts linked with ISIS had published a preview clip earlier in the evening with Muhammad Said Ismail Musallam, a 19-year-old Israeli from East Jerusalem.

The French media identified the French speaking Jihadists, who explained the capital offences of Said Ismail Musallam, as the half brother of Mohammed Merah. the 03/2012 Toulouse shooter –  Sabri Essid and suggested the shooter boy is too  family related to Mohammed Merah, probably one of Souad Merah, his sister’s sons.
