A former far-right Austrian politician denied that he helped the Mossad. Peter Sichrovsky told Ha’aretz that an Austrian magazine had misunderstood him when it reported last week that he agreed to serve as a liaison between Israel’s foreign spy service and the Arab world when he was secretary-general of the right-wing Freedom Party. Sichrovsky, who is Jewish, told Ha’aretz that when he visited Israel a few years ago several Israelis suggested that he meet with a Mossad representative, and asked his and Austria’s help in trying to discover the fate of three Israeli soldiers kidnapped by Hezbollah in October 2000.
