PARIS (Reuters) - France demanded on Thursday that Israel explain how a forged French passport came to be used by assassins suspected of killing a Hamas commander in Dubai last month.
The case has already caused diplomatic friction between Israel and European allies, with Britain urging Israel to cooperate with efforts to clear up the apparent use of faked British passports.
"We are asking for explanations from Israel's embassy in France over the circumstances of the use of a fake French passport in the assassination of a Hamas member in Dubai," the Foreign Ministry said in an electronic news briefing.
Forged British, Irish, German and French documents were used by 11 people named by the United Arab Emirates as suspects.

Now that's downright sKeeRy!!!!!!
Say, where can we get the complete back story on this so-called “victim,” one of the founders of Hamas -— just how many deaths was he responsible for??? HUH? Why in he$$ are so many police agencies and foreign governments coming out in full force support of ANYTHING-Hamas????
What if it was not Israel behind the killings? Why do the French and British assume they were involved?
“HOW DARE YOU use subterfuge to target the leadership of an organization that wants to kill your civilian population, women and children, by blowing them up.”
If I were Israel I would tell the French: “Yes, we faked your second rate nations passport to kill a terrorist, and then I wiped my a$$ with your precious French passport, paying special attention to the area with the flag.”
Funny isn’t it that no country is concerned about the fake passport the terrorist was using and no one is yelling at Hamas?
He was there in Dubai to buy weapons intended for use against Israelis.
They apparently didn’t appreciate that and did something about it.
It’s been shown time and again what happens to Israel if they leave their security up to the court of world opinion.
If it was truly Israel behind this, France (and the others) ought to be saying WOW, we couldn’t have produced a better imitation ourselves.
It might be an internecine Pallie thing.
My explanation .... “It would appear that someone saved this world a lot of trouble by dispatching a slime bag. While I personally would like to shake their hands, I am pissed that they got to him before we did.”
France should explain its collaboration with Hitler in his rounding up of Jews for extermination. Next question, France, why did your forces fire on the Americans entering North Africa in WWII?
France should explain why they gave safe harbor to the Ayatolla Khomeini for so many years. After that, they can explain why they tried to build a nuclear reactor in Iraq. When they are done with that, they can explain why hate crimes against Jews happen so often there.
You have to watch the French, they have those lethal pastry’s.
Totally agree with that. The world just needs to mind there own business and worry about keeping there own noses clean.
Is there anything that the Communist EU will not blame on Israel and Bush? FU Britain, France, Germany and your red-headed step child Ireland.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Something wrong with Israeli passports?
“We didn’t do it.”
France demanded on Thursday that Israel explain how a forged French passport came to be used by assassins suspected of killing a Hamas commander in Dubai last month... Forged British, Irish, German and French documents were used by 11 people named by the United Arab Emirates as suspects.Had it been the Mossad, as an amusing twist, they should have used passports of "yoots" who have burned cars. ;') Thanks Nachum.
Yeah...I don’t think they work well in Dubai.
