Well, I’m not sorry that a Hamas leader got whacked but I won’t believe that Israel did it until I hear so from someone other than Hamas.

He said Mabhouh, who had been living in Syria since 1989, was assassinated a day after he arrived in Dubai but that Hamas could not say more at present about how he was killed. ???

“Israel has assassinated a senior Hamas military commander, an official in the Palestinian Islamist group said on Friday.

Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was killed in Dubai on Jan. 20, Izzat al-Rishq told Reuters in the Syrian capital Damascus, but did not specify how the assassination was carried out.

Al-Mabhouh was suspected of having participated in the abduction and subsequent murder of two Israeli soldiers, Avi Sasportas and Ilan Saadon, in 1989. “

Long memories of their murdered soldiers.

I suspect there were lots of .22LR casings on the ground. That would tell you all you needed to know. Signature hit.

Good for Israel and I wish Israel success in taking our Iran's nuclear program.
Take out the proxies, then consecrate on the main one, Iran.

What is amazing is that Israel seems to be able to hit “at will”. Which means that their own people are selling or setting up the locations for the hits. There is no other way to explain it. Which has got to be a great psych ops tool for the Israelis. When you fear your own side more than the enemies...= terror. Nicely Played Israel.

This could be a cover story -- al-Mabhouh may have just gotten murdered by whatever sex-for-hire hourly employee he went to Dubai to find.

Ping!!!

In the next to last paragraph of the posted article, al-Reuters reports:

Syria, which is seeking peace with Israel...

I believe that as much as I believe that an invasion from Mars is in progress.

"Syria, which is seeking peace with Israel..."

any reporter, editor, or politician who can even utter those words is so ignorant, naive, and/or anti-Israel that they are unworthy of any respect or regard.

In this situation, I suspect that Israel is like the 96 year-old man accused of adultery: Didn’t do the crime, but proud to plead guilty.

:’) Syria needs to unilaterally disarm and withdraw from its occupation of Lebanon, also remove its illegal dams that prevent waters from reaching Jordan, then pay Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and the United States reparations for sponsoring terrorist murders of their citizens.

Is everybody in Hamas a senior military commander? What happened to the ordinary foot soldier? Actually it’s a good thing the senior military commanders have been killed. More Senior shoes to be filled.

"It seems that an autopsy was ordered and found traces of poison in his body. Mabhouh was also ill.

Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas official in Gaza, said Mabhouh was killed by "advanced technical means."

Mabhouh's brother, Fayek, told Reuters in Gaza that his brother was killed "by strangulation after receiving an electric shock"

LMAO!!! Boy, those Israelis sure know how to kill a guy!

Poisoned! Strangled! Electrocuted! And the ever more popular "advanced technical means"!!!

Well, yeah. The "senior commanders" don't have to strap bombs on themselves and blow up markets and day cares. Who wants to be a foot soldier when every mission is your last?

"Abdul, welcome to Hamas, I am Commander Farouk, here is your bomb."

"Commander? By mohammads greasy beard you and I joined together just today!"

"Yes, we did, now take your bomb and go, that's an order!"

I saw no creditable evidence that Israel was involved.

He was in Dubai. Perhaps he didn’t pay and a pimp whacked him
