The Bible say that Moses sent 12 folks to gather specific info , they didn't kill . Mossad name is Mordechai and his secret operative is Hadass better known under the code name of Esther . They both collected info so the king could consider and decide about the actions of Haman the agathite. Haman first job was a street caller same as the Dubai khalfan obscurantism revealing his incompetence to the recording Medias . Joshua also sent folks to gather info about Jericho . What is 'nice' about that bible episode is that those folks met a woman. From there the 'red lite street' notion and the James Bond movies with his special drink and cool chiks. Most spies today seat behind a window, drink two days old coca-cola and keep records like any public clerk . Happy Purim .
