Trump's People Pocket Saudi Billions. What About Top Israeli Officials?

The matter raised a big question for Etyan Avriel who asked: Does the deal have an `Israeli' angle - and could former Mossad head Yossi Cohen be involved?

Channel 12 television revealed that Cohen, while still chief of Mossad, helped his daughter Achinoam get a job as a director in a company controlled by Tahnoun bin Zayed, the UAE national security adviser, a counterpart to the head of Mossad in that country. One of bin Zayed's companies has opened an office in Herzliya for the company employing Cohen's daughter, but Cohen denies any improper ties.

As Mossad chief, Yossi Cohen got his daughter a job with a UAE firm - report | TOI - Dec 6, 2021 |

Former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen helped secure his daughter a job at a firm with links to a senior Emirati official while still serving as head of the spy agency, Israeli television reported.

According to Channel 12 news, Achinoam Cohen Ganonyan began working for Group 42 earlier this year before her father's term as Mossad chief ended.

Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE's national security adviser and a member of the royal family, is the chairman of Group 42.

The website of the Abu-Dhabi based firm, also known as G42, says it specializes in artificial intelligence and cloud computing.

In July, G42 signed an agreement with Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries to cooperate on researching and developing technology to help battle COVID-19.
