The Beautiful 'Assassin': 'Hit Squad With British Passports Accused Of Executing Senior Hamas Leader [Pics in URL]
15th February 2010
Claims that British and Irish passport holders are among an alleged 11-man hit squad wanted in Dubai for the apparent assassination of a Hamas commander are tonight being investigated by London and Dublin. Dubai police say the main suspect is Peter Elvinger, 49, who holds a French passport. He was the gangs logistical co-ordinator and the one who booked room 237 in Al Bustan Rotana, down the corridor from the victims room 230. The other suspects were identified as Irish nationals Gail Folliard, Kevin Daveron and Evan Dennings; British nationals Paul John Keely, Stephen Daniel Hodes, Melvyn Adam Mildiner, Jonathan Louis Graham, James Leonard Clarke and Michael Lawrence Barney. Also wanted is Michael Bodenheimer, a German national.
Chief of Dubai Police Dahi Khalfan Tamim speaks during a video presentation showing Peter Elvinger, one of the 11 suspects involved in the recent killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh during a news conference in Dubai The hit squad was responsible for killing Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in his hotel room last month in a slaying that has brought vows of revenge from the Palestinian militant group, Dubai's police chief said. The details given by Lt Gen Dhahi Khalfan Tamim are the most comprehensive accusations by Dubai authorities since the body of al-Mabhouh was found on January 20 in his luxury hotel room near Dubai's international airport.
Hamas detains British journalist in Gaza Strip over 'security crimes' Tamim told reporters the alleged assassination team was made up of six British passport holders, three Irish and one each from France and Germany.

This is one celebration of diversity I can get behind ;-)
This has Mossad written all over it...
Ziva DAvid, no doubt.
I loved the movie “Munich”...and I love happy endings that have dead Hamas Leaders in them:o)
Next we’ll be hearing about the battle in Hamas over whether they should “profile” or “not profile” ~ now that they know they can’t just trust every White Man walking down the hotel corridor.
You know, I thought it probably be an Arab state, not Mossad.
If they’re proven to have used Eire/UK passports that wwill chill European relations further.
I always loved the passage in the Boats of Cherbourg to retreive the bought and paid for attack craft the French had withheld, where the Israeli team are coming through customs into France. That was before they came to lead the field in professionalism for this type of raid and they made a near fatal blunder. Officially, they’re all tourists and separate, but they arrive together at the same entry port. The French customs agent notes that they’re all bronzed, muscled, military hair-cuts and standing like soldiers...even more damning, he notes that all their passports are sequentially numbered.
The leader is freaking because it’s obvious why they’re there as the papers have been full of the French-Israeli bickering, but the Agent smiles, stamps their passport and wishers them well, making it plain that he knows what they’re up to and he symp[athises.
Good luck finding these people, guys. If any of them actually exist (and are not Israelis) I'd be very surprised.
Did this HamAss dude experience a La Femme Nikita moment?
Dubai police say the main suspect is Peter Elvinger, 49, who holds a French passport. He was the gang's logistical co-ordinator and the one who booked room 237 in Al Bustan Rotana, down the corridor from the victim's room -- 230. The other suspects were identified as Irish nationals Gail Folliard, Kevin Daveron and Evan Dennings; British nationals Paul John Keely, Stephen Daniel Hodes, Melvyn Adam Mildiner, Jonathan Louis Graham, James Leonard Clarke and Michael Lawrence Barney. Also wanted is Michael Bodenheimer, a German national.Thanks Steelfish. Bibi needs to excoriate the Arab propaganda sheets and broadcast screed-screechers regarding the rush to judgment about the hit, which was blamed on the Mossad. OTOH (emph added)...
At least seven people were involved in the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai last week, according to Dubai police chief Dhahi Khalfan... He also said that the main suspects in the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh held various European passports, AFP reported... Dubai authorities have said a "professional criminal gang" with European passports was likely behind the killing.That points directly toward Fatah, which has a decent amount of diplomatic and espionage infrastructure in Europe.
So a senior Terrorist is killed in Dubai, and the Dubai government sides with the Terrorists. Dubai is not a friendly nation.
We should nuke them and take their oil.
??? To many people. Something is not right.
Easy pleasey, Japanesey . IRA types contracted out by Israel. Like my ex boss used to say when he wanted, and expected, a job to be wrapped up quickly... boom-done!
This hit is exquisite. Delicious. Textbook.
Where’s the black and white gif of the crowd applauding?
OK- looks like the Dubai officials have some circumstantial evidence or perceptions that need worked out. Run Forest run! lol
Hearty approval bump!
Out of 9 or 11 “suspects” somebody is going to get the loose gums disease and go flapping to Interpol inquisitors, once in custody...
Bravo for dead Moslem terrorists!
Shouldn’t there be video of the corridor? I guess they would’ve disabled that if they noticed a camera there.
I wanted to see the Mossad victory dance after they snuffed the Moslem.
American version of the same movie! I didn’t know there was one.
Watch the French original, ‘Nikita’.
I agree with you, cpdill.
Thanks for the ping, sunkenciv, this doesn't sound like a Mossad OP to me, not at all. Everything I've read about them over the past half year is that they've experienced great success, but never publically acknowledge ANYTHING.
This obvious mob of people described in the article doesn't typify what I've read in the open press lately about Mossad.
Could there be evidence of Saudi cash??? Who else would like to go after Hamas?? Mossad usually has a finely honed finesse obviously not in evidence here.
I can't believe that Meir Dagan is behind this assassination. It doesn't sound like an Israeli hit team, (Kidon,) not at all.
On second thought, I’d like to take back the use of the word textbook and replace it with the words large footprint.
I agree. I expect Fatah will eventually prove to be behind this.
Whoever did this: my congratulations on a job well done. Just don't get caught on camera next time, OK?
I agree with you. I suspect that there are plenty of double agents that work in the higher eschelons of the Islamist Terrorist Networks, and thus there exist plenty of people who want them dead and who will actively assassinate same.
Do you seriously believe that FATAH may be behind this "On.Film" assassination hit team?
Or, were you joking or being sarcastic???
In another thread I was very condescendingly put down, repetitively, for not believing that this was an obvious Kidon hit; to me it is NOT "obviously" Mossad, and I see no reason why I should be belittled for my opinion on this.
Fatah has the resources necessary to do this. I was not being sarcastic.
I agree this is likely not Mossad.
Thank you. It sounded like a serious comment, so I wanted to make certain.
Revival of “Licensed to Kill” operatives?
I bet a lot of people are in panic mode right now.
They spent years trying to convince the world that James Bond and the ideology is dead.
And guess what, it appears to work!
This has made my day!
NEW MOSSAD CHIEF TO REACTIVATE HIT SQUAD
September 17, 2002
LONDON Newly apppointed Mossad chief Meir Dagan is planning to reactivate a special operations unit, code named Caesarea, to target the commanders, controllers, and financiers of terrorist groups throughout the Middle East, the London Sunday Times reports.
Quoting sources close to the Mossad, the paper said Islamic extremists abroad will become as vulnerable as those in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
"There is no reason why we should not do the same abroad. They will have nowhere to hide," said one source who is said to be familiar with Dagan's plans for the Mossad.
"Gone are the days of black-tie parties around the globe and fat expense accounts," he said. "Whatever we can't shoot will be closed down."
The source said Dagan's regime will "trim years of useless fat and rebuild the famous Mossad muscles. We have a war to win and there's no reason why the Abdullahs and Muhammads in Damascus, Teheran, and Beirut should sleep better than their brothers in Gaza."
The paper reported that Dagan is particularly determined to resurrect the reputation of the Caesarea Squad, which suffered a major setback following the abortive attempt to kill Hamas official Khaled Mashaal in Amman five years ago.
The squad is said to have been responsible for hunting down Adolf Eichmann in 1960 and eliminating the Palestinian terrorists who were responsible for planning and executing the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre, which resulted in the deaths of 11 Israeli athletes.
According to the Sunday Times report, the squad comprises no more than 30 individuals, all former commandos, who are considered the "elite of the elite" of Israel's security services.
The report adds that all are fluent in a foreign language, their faces are never exposed even to other Mossad employees and they often live as "sleepers" in the foreign capitals to which they are assigned.
Many receive no orders during a four-year tour of duty, "but when the command comes, action is immediate, be it the hiring of a vehicle for a secret commando operation or the assassination of a local target," said the paper.
Former Caesarea member Mishka Ben-David was quoted by the paper as saying only one in a thousand applicants to the Mossad receives an offer; only one in a hundred who graduates from the three-year Mossad cadet course is judged suitable for the Caesarea Squad "and during an operation in a foreign city, only one of the five to ten people on the ground does the hit."
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is reportedly confident that Dagan will deal effectively with Israel's enemies abroad, and the paper quoted an insider as saying: "The Sharon-Dagan team will be the terrorists' nightmare."
Spread this far/wide. Watch, capture, download, save to disk, it will be gone soon
.....Dubai police chief Khalfan has said he will issue an arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if investigators show Mossad was behind the killing.
The police have also said they were questioning two Palestinians suspected of involvement in the murder. The two men, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, had "fled to Jordan" after the killing.
Khalfan said they were extradited from Jordan "three days ago," pointing to a "strong suspicion" against one of the two who had met a member of the suspected hit team before the assassination
Say, there's been a new thread posted claiming that the PA refuses to release the identities of the two Palestinians detained by the Dubai LEOs.
PA says won't reveal identity of Dubai assassin suspects
The PA has its own list of enemies. To a degree they are the same ones Mossad might like to handle, but if the PA will do the job I suppose they are allowed to fly out of Ben Gurion airport (Bwahahahahah!)
LOL, those were kind of my thoughts, too -— did Mossad set them up to do this job??? And they don’t even know they were tools??? It would make a good Sp00k movie, don’t you think, with Meir Dagan & his Kidon figuring out ways to expand manpower during a deep recession and bad economic outlook, LOL
