The Judicial Police are investigating an email sent during the presidential elections to 100 top police officials. It affirmed that Sarkozy, like Balkany, Lellouche, Devedjian, and Aeschlimann, were linked to Mossad.

Did someone want to destabilise Nicholas Sarkozy during the presidential campaign? An investigation confided to the Direction of the Judicial Police has as its goal to find out. At the end of March 2007, in the last days of the election, all of the departmental directors of public security, about 100 high bureaucrats, received a strange email. The future president was accused, neither more nor less, of having been recruited in the 1980s by Mossad, the Israeli secret service.

The text sent out presents itself as a "note of synthesis" of two pages. Titled "The infiltration of the UMP by Israel's Mossad. Nicholas Sarkozy : the fourth man". At the top of the email was a faked logo of the DGSE. "It smells like a manipulation coming from the extreme right", said a leading member of the Ministry of Interior.

According to the author of the message, in 1978, the government of Menachem Begin ordered the infiltration of the Gaullist party in order to make it a partner of Israel. The operation was supposedly led by Rafael Eytan, the Israeli master spy. "Three French citizens predisposed to collaborate" were targeted: Patrick Balkany, Patrick Devedjian and Pierre Lellouche. Balkany is presented as the head of the "network".

In 1983, Patrick Balkany supposedly recruited the "young and promising" Sarkozy, the "fourth Mossad man". A fifth recruit completed the group in the 1990s: Manuel Aeschmann, deputy mayor at Asnières (Hauts-de-Seine). The cyberinformer affirms that this man, close to Sarkozy, was "resposible for establishing contacts with Iranian leaders in France". This assertion is all the more perfidious because his town of Asnières effectively welcomes a strong Iranian community.

No Prints

An embarrassed senior policeman then had to report the contents of this crazy email and the quality of its recipients to the upper echelons. An investigation was immediately begun and given to the Judicial Police. The police discovered that the message was sent from a cybercafé in Val-d'Oise.

But the informer had been careful in choosing the site of his mockery: in this business where anonymity is the rule, because the law doesn't require that a person presents his identity papers before using the computers, there was no video surveillance. No fingerprints nor trace of DNA was found. Checking the machines turned nothing up either. Nor did a semantic analysis of the text.

The investigation continues at the demand of the public prosecutor's office, at the risk of giving to this affair an importance it does not deserve.
