The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend, Even if He Was My Enemy Beforehand

Former SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny, whose exploits during the Second World War are the stuff of legend, later worked for Israel as a spy and a hitman. His biggest accomplishment, as far as is known, was crippling Egypt's rocket program.

It's probably a safe bet that, when he helped found a Spanish neo-nazi group in 1966 and the Paladin Group soon after, that he was passing information about them to Mossad.
