The more I hear about the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, with the ever increasing number of British passports allegedly involved, the more I wonder whether this was a Mossad led assassination, or if it’s a double blind. You see, it strikes me as a very clumsy job, especially to think that the Mossad would compromise the passports of ordinary British citizens resident in Israel. It seems to me more likely that some Muslim country or Muslim NGO saw an opportunity both to rid itself of someone who may have become a problem within Hamas and to smear Israel by making it look as if Israel was the culprit. (See what I mean about the bad thriller with the surprise ending?)
What do you think?
