The Shabbak Is Looking For You!

י"ז לחודש השנים עשר תשע"ד

Recently, I have being seeing this ad pop up on Facebook.

The Shabba"k* is looking for you!

Come be integrated into a unique and challenging position in the field in the General Security Service. [Click] for additional details.

*Shabba"k is a Hebrew acronym (שב"כ) for the General Security Service (שירות הביטחון הכללי).

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Well, I have to admit, this is a clever advertising slogan. "The Shabba"k is looking for you!" has a double meaning, assuming that was the Shabba"k's intention,...and I am not 100 percent that it was.

You see, the Shabba"k has several nicknames, not the least of which is the "Israeli Secret Police." In fact, it is so secret that agents offer testimony in court behind screens or in disguise. I believe that may even go beyond the protection of informants in the U. S., as each citizen has the right to "face his accuser."

The point is that while the Shabba"k is looking for you, as a prospective agent employee, it also may be looking for you, because the Israeli government takes issues with some of your actions,...perhaps even some of your opinions.

Of course, I am only speculating that last part,...speculating from personal experience.
