Eshkol government offered money for Eli Cohen

It was disclosed this week that the government of Levi Eshkol offered $53 million in exchange for Israeli spy Eli Cohen. Cohen was hanged by the Syrian government in January 1965. That's $370 million in 2011 dollars.

I think there would have been fewer objections if Israel had offered money rather than terrorists for Gilad Shalit.

This isn't really new information - that's why he was called the 'Million dollar spy' ... We also offered first aid options etc ...

Pity they didn't accept it - we'll never know his resting spot.

Well, you don't want to enrich your enemy.

Oh, wait--I forgot that's what the U.S., Europe, U.N., do through aid to the Palestinian Authority anyway.
