The killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh bears the hallmarks of the ruthless Israeli intelligence service. One of the leading chroniclers of the agency gives a unique insight into its methods.

The Mossad assassins could have felt only satisfaction when the news broke that they had succeeded in killing Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a top Hamas military commander, in Dubai last month.

The Israeli government’s refusal to comment on the death has once more gained worldwide publicity for Mossad, its feared intelligence service. Its ruthless assassinations were made famous by the film Munich, which detailed Mossad’s attacks on the terrorists who killed Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics. Long ago, the agency had established that silence is the most effective way to spread terror among its Arab enemies.

  4. The other side of the coin is that Israel is getting a lot of pushback this time. This world is getting sick and tired of Israel’s lawlessness.

    • True, there’s some “pushback” but it’s from groups that support Hamas and anything else in favor of destroying Israel. It has to be expected that they’d complain when Israel reminds them of its ability to protect itself.

      It was, however, piss-poor diplomatically since Dubai was agreed upon to be a no-fire zone.
