Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, Dubai and Why It's Not For Israel To Destroy Iran's Nuclear Reactor

I certainly have no inside knowledge about the execution of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, in Dubai.  The world, the media etc want to believe that it was Israel.  Those who admire Israel insist that only Israel could have pulled it off so professionally and those who revile Israel want to show how evil and untrustworthy Israel is, daring to illegally use and tamper with foreign passports etc.




Since most vast majority (this is no 55%) of the world has neither sympathy nor friendship for us, no matter what happens they'll find some reason to condemn us.

Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was an evil man.  There's no real debate about it, even among those trying to catch Israel on "technicalities."  Generally, the world and media are silent over these sorts of events.  There's a code of silence, because each country's espionage experts know that if they investigate the deeds of another country, their own "specialists" will be endangered even more.  So here we have an example of how the antipathy for Israel will now make it harder for Great Britain's real life 007's, "Bond, James Bond."



Ever since I heard the ridiculous idea that it's up to Israel to destroy Iran's nuclear reactor, I envisioned the world condemning Israel if it's foolish enough to do it, successfully or not.  Yes, there's a major chance that the world will never move against Iran's bomb, but I still don't see why it's up to Israel.  When U.S. President George Bush The First went to war against Iraq, Iraq attacked Israel, not the United States.  Nobody cared.

Israel must remember that we're alone.  No country supports and defends us.  We must do what is good for us and stop looking for approval and support from others.

"I certainly have no inside knowledge..."

And I was so sure you will tell it all as it was ;-)

yes we are alone and what is worse other countries like usa or russia use us as weapon in their game with influence on middle east. but take a look at what we have done just during 60 years-it makes me pretty optimistic about our future even during the times of such threat as iran nuclear programm....

ahh, Snoopy, but I could be a "witch" of sorts with special powers.

gili, we must use the "alone" to make ourselves strong and not look for somone to rely on. We have G-d.

Good point.
I think that this event would also have been hushed up but I seem to agree with Yoav Yitzhak on this one. The Israeli tabloid publicists are so rabid about looking for anyway to hit Bibi with anything, they are brewing the storm on this issue. The hit was a success, but they are out to paint it as a major screw up. They run to the world press with the bits and pieces their friends feed them so that they can then quote 'foreign sources' (who could not care less).

Menachem Begin was condemned for the Iraq bombing. Only Peres, Barak etc are teflon.

This was a great victory, and now we 'need' Mashaal. It is up to us and it always will be. Mashaal must have wet his bed when he heard the news. Good or bad PR, the psychological effects are far greater and in the long run beneficial. Hamas will try to do something 'stupid' by retaliating and bring 'someone' important out in the open. They can run but they can't hide Hashem sees all and will deliver our enemies into our hands ...

jdl, don't count on the enemy's mistakes to save us.

We make too many, too. It's up to us to do the right thing.

Use of British passports means that Israel may be even more alone, as British lawmakers are calling for action:

“If the British government does nothing about this then they’re condoning an act of international terrorism by a state with whom they keep telling us, they are the best possible friends. And that will make a mockery of their claims to be a government against terrorism that's cracking down on all sorts of people, arresting people, surveilling people because of a fear that they may be involved in terrorism … Here is a clear act of terrorism carried out clearly in the interests of the state of Israel.” (http://bit.ly/cj27VH)

The anti-Israel stricter complications for espionage will hit other countries harder when restrictions apply to them, too.
