"Israel has for a long time maintained covert ties with Indonesia. According to some reports, Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad, under the cover of a business office, has been present in Jakarta for years.

"Reports say Indonesian officers have been trained in Israel in anti-terrorist methods, and intelligence agencies of both countries have been exchanging information since the late 1960s.

"Former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky has said the Israeli agency is very well entrenched in Indonesia, with the knowledge and permission of the Indonesian government.

"Some reports imply that Israel in the late 1980s sold 28 US-made Skyhawk fighter aircraft to Indonesia.

"Anti-corruption activist George Aditjondro has written about the Suharto regime's purchase of Israeli Uzi guns and other weapons through Mossad-linked arms trader Shaul Eisenberg."
