LIKE THE 1890 statement by the US Census Bureau about the American frontier’s disappearance, and like the statistical report in 2013 that Israel had become home to the world’s largest Jewish community – a quip by Israel’s chief spy in 1998 went unnoticed, though its meaning was profound.

The Mossad – its director in those days Efraim Halevy, told the Knesset Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee – no longer saw anywhere in the world an oppressed Jewish community on whose behalf to operate; not even in Iran, which – unlike the Soviet Union in its time – did not, and still does not, prevent its Jews’ freedom of worship or travel.
