August 1970. On Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff Street two people are hawking the Canaanite journal Aleph for 50 agorot – half an Israeli pound. A Shin Bet security service agent code-named Kedar documents, signs and files a report about the event.
October 1975. A Shin Bet agent code-named Yerubaal sums up a television program about Canaanites and Zionists. “[Writer and poet] Aharon Amir and Uzzi Ornan took part in the program on behalf of the Canaanites,” Yerubaal wrote. “The Zionist side was represented by Lova Eliav and Shlomo Avineri. Prof. Yeshayahu Leibowitz, who also appeared, termed the Canaanites fascists.”
