Read Harpoon: Inside the Covert War Against International Terrorism's Money Masters Online Free - A revelatory account of the cloak-and-dagger Israeli campaign to target the finances fueling terror organizations--an effort that became the blueprint for U.S. efforts to combat threats like ISIS and drug cartels.
ISIS boasted $2.4 billion of revenue in 2015, yet for too long the global war on terror overlooked financial warfare as an offensive strategy. "Harpoon," the creation of Mossad legend Meir Dagan, directed spies, soldiers, and attorneys to disrupt and destroy money pipelines and financial institutions that paid for the bloodshed perpetrated by Hamas, Hezbollah, and other groups. Written by an attorney who worked with Harpoon and a bestselling journalist, Harpoon offers a gripping story of the Israeli-led effort, now joined by the Americans, to choke off the terrorists' oxygen supply, money, via unconventional warfare.

Harpoon is an interesting take on a little-known aspect of the endless Middle Eastern terrorist wars, one in which the battle cry is “follow the money” and banks are the battleground.

The first third of this book focused a bit too much on the well-known details of the major terrorist attacks in Israel during the Nineties and during Second Intifada. As the book progressed there was more emphasis on Meir Dagan's quest to 'follow the money' and deplete global terrorism funds. Tha...

A very interesting read. Not balanced (unabashedly pro Israeli), but gives insight into the Israeli war on terrorist financing. Also a bit of a spy thriller!

I may have missed it, but this seems to be largely a recounting of Palestinian atrocities with not much description of what Harpoon did. Meir Dagan is someone I would like to know more about, though.

Harpoon author Nitsana Darshan-Leitner is director of Tel Aviv based organization Shurat HaDin, which works with lawyers, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies to fight Israel's enemies.

Nitsana and her co-author unwrap a previously-secret Israeli intelligence program to hit the terrorist-masters where it hurts: their bank accounts. Fascinating portrait of former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, who I had the opportunity of meeting many years ago in Jerusalem. I would have liked to learn...

The first of three parts focused almost exclusively on a quasi biography of the main subject, Meir Dagan. Although he acted as an almost unbelievable example of best practices and critical thinking to solve major intelligence questions, his role could have been a chapter. More focus on the techni...

Good read and following the news and Shurat hadin's work, it was fascinating to read about the Mossad's initiative that got it all started it, as well as the Mossad's behind the scene financial counter-terrorism operations.

Phenomenal book. War against evil terrorists must be fought with weapons and by the way it has been described in this book in other ways. Really cool insights in Meir Dagan leadership skills.
