Dan Ert, who has changed his name to Aerbel and now lives in Herzliya, was a member of an Israeli “hit team” that in 1973 killed an Arab waiter in Lillehammer, Norway, in the mistaken belief that he was a Palestinian responsible for the Munich attack on Israeli Olympic athletes. A native of Copenhagen who maintained Danish and Israeli citizenship, Ert tried to win his release by telling his flabbergasted Norwegian interrogators that he was a Mossad agent. To prove it, he mentioned that he “owned the ship” that had secretly carried uranium for Israel. (Ert has since denied saying this.) Ert also gave his captors the secret phone number of Mossad headquarters in Tel Aviv. He was convicted of participating in a murder and imprisoned for seven months.
