Israeli Official Ridicules Dubai's Demand for Arrest of Mossad Chief
ABCnews:Mobile ^ | February 17, 2010 | ABC news staff

Posted on 02/18/2010 12:15:14 PM PST by hennie pennie

Interpol has issued wanted notices for 11 suspects in the murder of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, but Dubai's police chief has asked that Interpol also call for the arrest of the head of Israel's spy agency. Dahi Khalfan Tamin told Dubai TV he had asked the international police agency to issue one of its "red notices" for the head of Mossad, "in case Mossad is believed to be behind the crime, which is likely now."

A senior Israeli official who wished to remain anonymous told ABC News that if Dubai asks for the arrest of Mossad chief Meir Dagan, "They will be the laughing stock of the international police community."

"They obviously don't have a shred of evidence against Mossad," said the official, "and if they push forward they will...

On a side note: Didn’t Obama just grant Interpol officials ‘Diplomatic Status’ within the US? Think about what could happen here in a similar situation.

I assume these are the passport pictures of the assassins:

The occupation of assassin doesn't immediately come to mind at first glance with some of those guys.

"...it is often implicated in things it did not do..."

CBSnews interviewed the author of a book about the history of the Mossad:

"The Mossad's reputation is such that its mistakes are often seen as having been done on purpose, and it is often implicated in things it did not do," said Aaron J. Klein, a former Israeli intelligence officer whose book STRIKING BACK documents the Mossad's deadly response to the Munich attack.

>>>> "I assume these are the passport pictures of the assassins..." <<<<

I think you're mistaken. I think that these photos are associated with the stolen passport identities -- because I've heard at least one interview with a person whose name was on the counterfeit passport and they said that they were horrified to learn that their photograph is being shown all over the world as being implicated in an assassination.

He's a 50+ guy who made aliyah to Israel a couple years ago after having had a triple heart bypass surgery -- NOT sp00k material.

Crime?

Crime indeed.

Give these men and women the Peace Prize for eliminating one more threat to peace and goodwill.

May they have continued good luck in their endeavors.

BBC News - Israeli press on Hamas killing in Dubai

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8521686.stm

Israeli press commentary on the killing of a senior Palestinian militant in Dubai - allegedly by an Israeli hit squad - has been mixed.

Some commentators have expressed confidence that their country will emerge unscathed by the affair. One expressed delight at the elimination of a ''cruel enemy'' - Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh - while others defended the Israeli secret service, Mossad, from public criticism, saying its reputation would remain intact even if it was found responsible for a messy operation in which agents were exposed on Dubai CCTV cameras.

Some commentators have been highly critical, questioning whether the prize was worth the cost in diplomatic relations.

EITAN HABER in YEDIOT AHARONOT
Let us assume for a moment that Mossad agents indeed were the ones who executed Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai and that the agents were exposed to the cameras… So what? The failure is not so great… I am happy for the elimination of a cruel enemy, Mr al-Mabhouh… As for the unpleasantness with governments - Britain, Ireland and France - don't worry.

STORY CONTINUES:

What happens if Israel issues an arrest warrant for the head of Interpol? Dueling warrants? My warrant is bigger than your warrant?

Dubai police wants Dagan arrested
19/02/2010 BY YAAKOV LAPPIN
The Jerusalem Post

http://mobile.jpost.com/Search;.N01?r=31&c=169099&n=169100

.....The investigation has now widened to the United States. The alleged killers used fraudulent passports to open five credit card accounts through US-based banks, said an official who has close knowledge of the investigation. The official gave no additional details.

Meanwhile, a senior Hamas source told the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper that two Palestinians arrested in Jordan and deported to Dubai on suspicion of aiding the assassins were members of Palestinian Authority security forces.

According to some reports, one of the Palestinian suspects has confessed to his role in the killing.

Al-Hayat named Anwar S., a PA intelligence officer, and Ahmed H., a PA security officer, as the suspects. Other reports later named the men as Anwar Shahaibar and Ahmed Hassnein.......

Nahro Massoud, a Hamas official who was released from an Egyptian prison in 2007 to the chagrin of the Palestinian Authority, wasarrested in Syria in connection with the assassination of fellow Hamas terror chief Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the British Guardian newspaper reported overnight Wednesday.

According to the report, Palestinian sources confirmed that Massoud was being detained and questioned in Syria.

Allegations of his arrest and detention have been denied by Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, the paper added. He was quoted in the report assaying, "It is not correct at all."

The PA in past years accused Massoud of being behind the assassinationof Col. Muhammad al-Musat, commander of the PA's Military IntelligenceForce in the northern Gaza Strip.

Say, have you seen the article by the BBC, it's a round up of how the Arab press is reporting this, it is SO funny, LOLOLOLOLOL

ARAB PRESS GLEE AT 'MOSSAD EXPOSED'

The FINAL comment in their article:

JIHAD AL-KHAZIN in LONDON-BASED AL-HAYAT
"Palestinian leaders have become too stupid to learn a lesson. Instead of a united voice condemning the crime, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority are accusing each other of killing al-Mabhouh, not Israel."

WARRANTS ARE DEMANDED FOR THE HEADS (ATTACHED OR NOT) OF INTERPOL, AND THE DUBAI, FRENCH AND ENGLISH POLICE FOR ALLOWING HAMAS TO RUN AROUND UNIMPEDED THROUGH EUROPE AND THE MIDDLE EAST SMUGGLING AND IMPORTING

THOUSANDS OF ROCKETS AND EXPLOSIVES FROM IRAN

THAT WERE FIRED AT JEWISH CIVILIANS.

These warrants should be executed ASAP, and these incompetent or colluding HEADS OF THESE AGENCIES SHOULD BE DRAGGED IN FRONT OF A COURT FOR CONSPIRACY AND PARTICIPATION IN WAR CRIMES AGAINST CIVILIANS.

IF THEY DO NOT SURRENDER ON THEIR OWN FOR IMMEDIATE TRIAL FOR CAPITAL OFFENSES, THEY ARE HEREBY WARNED THAT FREE THINKING AMERICANS, EUROPEANS AND ISRAELIS WILL PUT A BOUNTY ON THEIR HEADS FOR THEIR APPREHENSION.

THEY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS AND TREATED ACCORDINGLY.

There's lots of people positing that Mossad was successful in this OP and that in the future ALL similar hit teams will also be caught on camera, because security is part & parcel of the modern world.

I think that's ridiculous --- security cameras have been around how LONG????

Why has Mossad been reputed to be having great success throughout the mideast with their Kidon hit teams, and sudddenly it takes EIGHTEEN OR MORE PEOPLE to take out this Hamas founder, but all their other alleged successful hits are NOT on candid camera, and even if they were, would they send a couple dozen all to the same area???

Freeper sjackson posted a link to an hilarious blog with a longish entry and one of the points made was that it would have been MUCH more secretive to helicopter in several dozen paratroopers in the dead of night than all these "assassiins" who are readily viewed pacing up and down hotel lobbies, etc.

The ONLY way this may turn out to be associated with Meir Dagan is if it was some type of really Awful Sarcastic Poke In The Eye to somebody, along with a successful hit.
