Background Edit

Benjamin Stone was a media mogul; he was also a sayan. He frequently assisted Ari Shamron when Ari needed clandestine funding for his operations.

Appearance Edit

Ari asked Stone to fund his operation against Tariq al-Hourani and Stone consented. When Ari asked Stone to invest some money in Isherwood Fine Arts to keep Julian Isherwood afloat, Stone refused. Stone pushed for access to Gabriel Allon to produce a story about Gabriel for his newspaper; Ari refused access and discussed Stone's pushiness with the Israeli prime minister, who told him that Stone was his problem.

Later, when the operation was over and al-Hourani had been killed, Gabriel read that Stone was missing and presumed to have drowned.
