Total number of suspected Mossad agents involved in Dubai assassination reaches 32

Dubai names five new suspects in Hamas murder
May 7 2010

Total number of suspected Mossad agents involved in Dubai assassination reaches 32.
DUBAI – Dubai police have named five new suspects in the assassination of a senior Hamas official at a hotel in the Gulf emirate, bringing the total number to 32, Al-Arabiya news channel reported on Friday.

The murder is widely believed to be carried out by the Mossad, Israel’s notorious secret service.

Police said two of the new suspects in Mahmud al-Mabhuh’s assassination in January held French passports, another two travelled on British passports, and the other, a woman, had an Australian passport, the Dubai-based channel said.

It gave the names in Arabic, while Dubai police were not reachable for comment.

International police agency Interpol has already issued arrest notices for 27 suspects wanted by Dubai in connection with the murder of Mabhuh, who was found dead in his Dubai hotel room on January 20.

The assassination has caused diplomatic tension over the alleged falsification of Western passports by Israel’s Mossad spy agency.

London in March kicked out an Israeli diplomat citing “compelling reasons” to believe that Israel was responsible for the misuse of British passports.

The Dubai police had said 12 people linked to the murder used cloned British passports, four had French travel documents, six carried Irish passports and one used a German identity.

Four Australian passports were also used in the operation.

Meanwhile, two Palestinians were arrested in Jordan and extradited to Dubai over connections to the killing, according to police.

Australia said on Friday that it was investigating reports that a fifth Australian passport had been linked to the assassination.

Dubai police chief General Dahi Khalfan has said Mabhuh was drugged and then suffocated in his hotel room.

The emirate’s security service showed surveillance video footage from Mabhuh’s hotel detailing the movements of the alleged assassination squad.  Source

Assassination latest act in nightmare without end

February 28 2010

By Matt McCarten

It’s sad but not a surprise that we don’t hear so much as a peep from our Government or the United States over the assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

Could you imagine the world outrage if Hamas stole the passports from other countries’ citizens to use as cover for an execution squad?

Imagine the shrill condemnation if they tricked an Israeli military leader to travel to another country where he or she was ambushed and throttled to death.

Imagine a death squad of up to 26 assassins infiltrating a neutral country to carry out such an atrocity.

It seems we can’t get over the myth we’ve created of the little plucky nation of Israel defending itself against the Islamic hordes intent on destroying them.

The fact is Israel has the fourth largest military machine in the world and is the only nuclear power in the region.

Israelis think it’s acceptable to have their country, that was built on the theft of land and the homes of the original inhabitants and that imprisons the entire Palestinian people, and then arm themselves with nuclear missiles to intimidate any country that objects.

It is the sole superpower in the region backed up by the only world superpower. It’s a different story for Iran, which has its two closest neighbours invaded and occupied by massive hostile armies.

It is surreal that our news of the killing of al-Mabhouh is focused on passport thefts rather than the cynicism of a rogue nation that feels a God-given right to assassinate its enemies as it sees fit.

The posturing from those nations, who had their citizens’ identities used as aliases for terrorism, is pathetic.

The best they could come up with is calling in the Israeli ambassador for a telling off. Without doubt, these victims of passport theft will be on the international terrorist watch list whenever they travel.

When their governments are pushed about what actions will be taken against Israel for putting their citizens in danger, they retreat into gobbledygook. Israel is already gloating that these protests are just for show and will die down soon enough. That is until next time it decides to murder someone.

The international media seem more interested in the mechanics of murder. There’s certainly no discussion about sanctions against Israel or calling for the murderers to be extradited to face justice.

It is almost accepted that it’s okay for Israel to entrap and murder its enemies as some sort of pre-emptive strike.

I will assume al-Mabhouh was indeed a leader of Hamas prepared to import arms into Gaza. But this is a land where almost a million and a half citizens are walled off from the rest of the world by Israel and being bled into submission. Nothing goes in and nothing out.

The Palestinian people there are in desperate peril, yet the rest of the world ignores their plight. When these people try to fight back with home-made bombs they are invaded, their civilians massacred and their homes levelled.

Israel keeps the media away, then denies its atrocities and attacks anyone who tries to tell the truth.

So Palestinians see people like al-Mabhouh as freedom fighters fighting for them.

The twisted and ugly truth is Hamas was actually created and funded by Israel to undermine the secular, nationalist Fatah. Now it’s backfired.

Fatah would do anything for a deal with Israel, but can’t because of Hamas.

So everyone in Israel and Palestine is stuck in a revolving nightmare with no end.

Peace will only come when Israel admits it has visited a monstrous evil against the land’s indigenous people and that a genuine settlement can only be reached if it gives up some of its stolen land, pays compensation for the rest and recognises an independent state of Palestine.

Instead it thinks it can continue to use brute force to impose its will on the weak and hunt down and murder those who dare to fight back.

This is a nation gone mad. It’s worse than terrorism.

Investigators arrive in Israel as Dubai authorities find DNA at murder scene

By Donald Macintyre in Jerusalem

February 27, 2010

Investigators from Britain’s Serious Organised Crimes Agency (Soca) have arrived in Israel to start interviews with dual nationals whose names were used on fraudulent passports used by the assassins of a Hamas commander last month.

Soca confirmed yesterday that arrangements were already being made to speak to the six British-Israeli dual nationals whose names appeared on the 11 passports originally revealed by Dubai police last week to have been used by members of the hit squad. Meanwhile, police in Dubai said that they had moved a step closer to identifying the murder suspects by finding DNA and fingerprints at the scene of the crime.

The planned interviews are part of the investigation into the use of the falsified passports ordered by Gordon Brown after the revelation of their use in the operation to kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in his Dubai hotel room.

Dubai’s police chief, Lt Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, has said he is “99 per cent sure” that Israel’s foreign intelligence agency Mossad was responsible for the assassination. And yesterday he told the Al-Arabiya news network that new evidence had emerged in the hotel where Mr Mabhouh died. “We’ve (identified) traces of DNA on the scene, belonging to the criminals,” he said. “We have fingerprints and DNA traces.”

Israel, whose ambassador in London Ron Prosor was called into the Foreign Office after the original disclosures, has refused to confirm or deny any involvement.

Soca said yesterday it was “arranging to speak to six passport holders as possible witnesses to a crime”. It said interviews would take place in the British Embassy in Tel Aviv and added: “The Israeli authorities have been informed.” A spokesman for the British Embassy said an investigator from the British agency had arrived in Israel but indicated that interviews had not yet begun.

Soca enquiries are likely to include interviews with another six British passport holders whose names were among those used by a further 15 suspects in the assassination revealed by Dubai police this week. The agency said it was “working closely with the Emirates”. This week’s announcement brought to 26 the total of suspects being sought by the Dubai authorities for the killing.

Lt Gen Tamin was also quoted as saying that he expected details of the 15 new passports identified in the case to be circulated by Interpol as the 11 others already have been. He told the United Arab Emirates-based newspaper al-Bayan that he was working with European countries, Australia and the US through diplomatic channels to establish an international detection team “from at least seven countries”. He added: “Friendly nations who have been assisting in this investigation have indicated to the police in Dubai that the passports were issued in an illegal and fraudulent manner.”

‘Irish’ assassin became a killer blonde in Dubai hit

The suspect who used the name Ivy Brinton is shown in the CCTV footage on the left as having brown hair when she entered the hotel and then as a blonde leaving the hotel at a later stage.

By Shane Phelan

Friday February 26 2010

ONE of the six ‘Irish’ suspects in the assassination of a Hamas commander in Dubai changed her hair colour while on the mission, new video footage reveals.

The suspect, who used the name Ivy Brinton and had a false Irish passport, can be seen sporting both dark and blonde hair in the footage released by authorities in the United Arab Emirates yesterday.

The footage, from the hotel where Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was killed last month, reveals how the suspect either dyed her hair or wore a wig in an effort to conceal her identity — going blonde halfway through the mission.

It shows her accompanied by another suspect, who used the name Chester Halvey and also travelled on a forged Irish passport.

A third suspect who used a false Irish passport was also shown on footage released yesterday. The woman, using the name Anna Shauna Clasby, was filmed leaving the hotel, the Jumeirah Emirates Towers, on the day of the killing.

The release of the footage and other information by the Dubai authorities has cranked up international pressure on Israel over the assassination.

Dubai’s police chief Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim says he believes the Israeli secret service Mossad was responsible. Israel has refused to confirm or deny involvement.

Angry

Speaking on a visit to Gaza yesterday, Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin said: “We are very angry at the fraudulent use of information that was stolen from valid Irish passports to make forged passports.

“These people were not Irish citizens. Whoever did this forged the passports. We’re angry about that because it violates the integrity of our passport system and also places at risk the security of our citizens.”

Forged British, French, German and Australian passports were also used by the suspects.

Australia yesterday summoned its Israeli ambassador to a meeting to explain the affair.

The operation to kill Mr al-Mabhouh came just five years after an Israeli diplomat was expelled from Australia after a Mossad operation to fraudulently obtain Australian and New Zealand passports was uncovered.

Although a garda investigation has been launched into the use of Irish passport information, senior gardai said last night there were no plans to send an officer to Dubai. But gardai are liaising with Interpol and police forces in the other countries affected.

At the time of his murder, Mr al-Mabhouh was wanted by the Israeli, Egyptian and Jordanian governments. He died after being electrocuted with a stun gun and smothered to death with a pillow.

Dubai police believe he was followed to his hotel room by members of the assassination squad wearing fake beards, wigs and other disguises.

Authorities did not know he had been murdered until after a post-mortem examination. Source

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu authorized assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh

Update February 25 2010: Apparently there were also a few more people involved. Some used Australian passports.

Mounting diplomatic fury over the killing of a top Hamas commander in a Dubai hotel reached Australia on Thursday, with Israel’s ambassador summoned over the use of Australian passports by a suspected assassination squad.

Dubai authorities have now identified 26 people suspected of involvement in the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, with three using forged Australian passports named among 15 new suspects, most of them Europeans.

“Any state that has been complicit in use or abuse of the Australian passport system, let alone for the conduct of an assassination, is treating Australia with contempt and there will therefore be action by the Australian government in response,” said Australia’s Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, without elaborating.

Now they are looking at 26 perpetrators as opposed the the 11 previous suspects. Concern over fake passport use should be  in the forefront as Mossad has a long history of such use of passports.

Finally some are now becoming aware of  forged or stolen document use. I just have to wonder what took everyone so long to finally do something about it? This has been ongoing for years.

Report: PM approved Dubai assassination in early January

February 23 2010

By Yossi Melman, Ofer Aderet, Liel Kyzer, Barak Ravid and Avi Issacharoff

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu authorized in early January the assassination of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, according to a report published in the Sunday Times.

Based on information obtained from “sources with knowledge of Mossad,” the paper reported that Netanyahu gave Mossad chief Meir Dagan the green light for the Dubai operation during a meeting at the Midrasha – the intelligence agency’s headquarters, in the northern suburbs of Tel Aviv.

The sources also said that the Mossad hit squad trained for the Dubai mission by secretly rehearsing in a Tel Aviv hotel.

Netanyahu reportedly told the Mossad agents, “The people of Israel count on you. Good luck.”

Meanwhile, Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim said that an internal Hamas source leaked information to Mabhouh’s assassins that led to his killing, Israel Radio reported.

Speaking to Persian newspaper Gulf News, Tamim said that the aide, whose identity was not revealed, was the only person who knew about Mabhouh’s visit to the emirate.

Meanwhile, Hamas on Saturday again blamed Israel again for the hit. At a press conference, Salah al-Bardawil, one of the group’s Gaza-based leaders, said he does not suspect that the Palestinian Authority was involved in the killing and that the entire affair was the responsibility of Mossad.

However, the Hamas official said the two Palestinians arrested in Dubai in connection with the killing are former officers in the Palestinian security services, and were employed by a firm owned by a senior member of rival Fatah.

The London-based newspaper Al-Hayat reported that this company is owned by Mohammed Dahlan, formerly a Fatah strongman in the Gaza Strip before its takeover by Hamas two and a half years ago.

Bardawil also said that Mabhouh had put himself at risk by booking his trip through the Internet and risked a security breach by telling his family in Gaza by telephone which hotel he would be staying at.

Also Saturday, the daily newspaper Al-Bayan reported that Dubai police had new evidence implicating the Mossad in Mabhouh’s assassination, which included credit-card payments and suspects’ phone records.

“Dubai police have information confirming that the suspects purchased travel tickets from companies in other countries with credit cards carrying the same names we have publicized [from the passports],” Al-Bayan quoted Dubai police chief Tamim as saying.

Dubai Suspects Are Interpol’s Most Wanted
International Police Issues Red Notices for 11 Alleged Assassins; Dubai Authorities Finger Israel’s Mossad Spy Agency

February 18, 2010

Interpole Website showing 11 suspects wanted by Dubai Police in connection with murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh

Interpol has put 11 people suspected in the slaying of a Hamas militant leader in Dubai on its most-wanted list as Dubai police stepped up their accusations against Israel’s Mossad spy agency for the murder.

The international police agency said it has issued red notices, its highest-level alert, to its member countries worldwide for “11 internationally wanted individuals who have been charged by UAE-Dubai authorities with coordinating and committing the murder.”

Interpol says it was acting on the request of Dubai authorities and that it believes the suspects used false passports.

Interpol issued the notices – which include photographs – “to limit the ability of accused murderers from traveling freely using the same false passports.”

Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh’s body was found Jan. 20 in his hotel room.

Meanwhile, Dubai Police Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim was quoted as saying he was “99 percent, if not 100 percent” certain that Mossad was behind last month’s slaying of al-Mabhouh in a luxury hotel room in Dubai.

Israel insists there is no evidence that Mossad agents were involved.

The comments – which appeared on the Web site of UAE daily The National – came as international pressure mounted for Israel to answer questions about possible links to the killing.

The investigation also widened to the United States. Emirates authorities said the alleged killers used fraudulent passports to open credit cards accounts through U.S.-based banks, an official said.

“Our investigations reveal that Mossad is involved in the murder of al-Mabhouh,” Tamim was quoted as saying by The National, which is owned by the government of Abu Dhabi.

He told another local paper, Dubai-based Gulf News, that: “All elements strongly indicate the involvement of the Mossad.”

Tamim and other Dubai police officials could not be immediately reached for further comment. Israel government spokesman Mark Regev also had no comment.

The international fallout from the murder in a Dubai hotel room showed no signs of easing, with Britain and Ireland summoning Israeli ambassadors Thursday for talks about the case following allegations that European passports were used by the alleged team of assassins.

A UAE official, who has close knowledge of the investigation, said at least 18 people – including two women – are now suspected in what Dubai police describe as a highly coordinated operation to kill al-Mabhouh, one of the founders of Hamas’ military wing.

Ten of the men and one woman were identified by Dubai police Monday as members of the group that traveled to Dubai on apparently fraudulent passports – six from Britain, three from Ireland and one each from Germany and France.

Britain has said it will investigate how some of the suspects came to have British passports – and how they might have been produced.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said one of the nation’s top diplomats, Peter Ricketts, “explained the concern we have for British passport holders in Israel” during the meeting with Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor.

“He made clear that we wanted to give Israel every opportunity to share with us what it knows about this incident, and we hope and expect that they will cooperate fully with the investigation,” he said, adding he would raise the issue with Israel’s foreign minister when they meet in Brussels in the coming days.

Prosor told journalists he was not able to add additional information to Britain’s request.

Israel’s ambassador to Ireland, Zion Evrony, said he had nothing useful to tell Ireland because he knew nothing confidential about the Dubai assassination.

Irish Foreign Minister Micheal Martin has said the three Irish passports did have valid numbers but were issued to people with different names than those made public by Dubai.

He said the Foreign Ministry had contacted two people with the same passport numbers and found they had not lost their passports or had any stolen. The assassins apparently had access to pre-2005 passports that lacked biometric information, Martin said.

Also linked to the slaying are two Palestinians in Dubai custody and five others, including one woman who was caught on video surveillance at the luxury hotel where al-Mabhouh’s body was found Jan. 20, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with standing policies.

Alleged Assassins Caught on Dubai Surveillance Tape

February 17 2010

Dubai authorities have released extensive footage from surveillance cameras that allegedly shows the movements of a professional 11-person assassination team in the hours before and after a top Hamas leader was killed last month in a hotel room.

February 2 2010 Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, 49, a military official of the Islamic Resistance Movement, was found dead in his Dubai hotel room late last month. While the death appeared to be from natural causes, an autopsy revealed Mr. al-Mabhouh was killed, apparently by suffocation with a pillow after receiving electric shocks, perhaps from a taser.

Hamas has accused Israel of carrying out the killing, and Dubai police chief Dhahi Khalfan said that Mossad, Israel’s infamous spy and dirty tricks agency, was one suspect.

“I don’t exclude any party that has an interest in the assassination,” Mr. Khalfan said. “There were seven or more people holding passports from different European countries” in the group suspected of killing Mr. al-Mabhouh, he said.

This is not  a new phenomenon as this has been done many times, among other assassinations and terrorist acts by Israel.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also  authorized the assassination of Khalid Mishal in 1997.

Mishal came to power largely as the result of a botched assassination attempt by seven Mossad agents in September 1997. Mossad used Canadian passports, some forged and some stolen from a Canadian embassy.

Lebanon: Monday night Explosion/ Israel in violation of Resolution 1701

October 16 2009

There are various versions as to what happened, but is seems the investigation of the explosion is not finished as of yet.
So much of everything being reported is just  guessing,  for the moment.

What really happened is not really known.

Apparently there was an explosion at the home of  of a Hezbollah figure named as Abdel Nasser Issa, in the village of Tayr Filsi.

The cause of the explosion could be anything.  The investigation as of today is still not finished.

Israel said they had a drone flying over the area which is a violation of Resolution 1701.

They just happened to have a drone flying over at the time of the explosion or shortly there after.

What a coincidence. Could this be a set up so Lebanon doesn’t get the seat.

It just happens that apparently Lebanon to get a  Security Council seat. Could this be a ploy so Lebanon doesn’t get the seat? What wonderful timing.

Would Israel be happy about that? No of course not.

Italian Peace keepers are in the area keeping a watchful eye on the area.

These photo’s do not tell me anything. They say much,  of nothing in fact.

It certainly isn’t evidence of anything.

Israeli photo from Drone

Their caption below the picture

Footage from an Israeli drone shows a group of men carrying objects, purportedly weapons, to two trucks which are then driven to a village about 2.5 miles away. The irregular-shaped, flat-roofed building seen on the right of the frame is the house where the explosion occurred. (Image: IDF spokesman’s office)

I got the Photo from this report.

It is obvious to me one can’t see much of anything,  so this photo proves absolutely nothing. To say they are carrying weapons is absurd.

To say they are carrying rockets again is absurd.

To say they are carrying anything in particular, using these photos would be again absurd.

You can not see with any clarity, that they are carrying anything.

I even enlarged it, way big and still saw nothing in particular, well except it looked a bit photo shopped, but could not see anything really.

So if this is the type of proof Israel is using against Lebanon,  it is absolutely  ridiculous. This proves nothing. It doesn’t even prove there was in fact an explosion.

I don’t see any evidence in the photo there had been an  explosion or the after math of one.

Here is the Israeli Video, it’s not so clear either? Could be a corps or two for all we know.  I certainly wouldn’t say it was a rocket. Maybe it is but maybe it is just shutters.

For sure we know Israel broke the law. Violated the Air space and Resolution 1701. They have incriminated themselves.

I see no evidence of an explosion even.

OK I just looked at the video for the tenth time, I didn’t see anyone covering anything on the truck. They were on the truck. Could be an injured person they were taking care of,  or anything.

The last part of the Video is even a bit off it is much different in quality then the first part.  There is also on the top and left side Gray parts like why. And a thick black line, why? How odd. Taken by the same camera I presume. There is also a target thingy in the center on the last part which is missing from the first part of the Video. The coloring is also much different.

Even the video makes no sense. I smell a rat.

Something is definitely  not right.

I watched it 10 times and still haven’t got a clue what is on the trucks.

Could even be a rolled up carpet. It does seem that whatever they are carrying is rather light as well.

For all we know the entire video was a fabrication. Israel is a master of fake passports, why not photos and videos?

There are many reason why an explosion can happen.

Even if there was an explosion, that doesn’t mean it was a munition that caused it.

What we probably know for certain is there have been numerous reports about this event. All Reported Israel took photo with a drone, which is a violation of Lebanon’s  Air space and Resolution 1701.

It is Israel who is saying these people are moving weapons, without any real evidence.

So to add to the violation, they may also be lying to the world.

Do I believe there accusations, not based on the evidence I have read or seen.

I think I will wait until the investigation is finished.

Jumping to conclusions based on an illegal activity on part of
Israel,  is like believing a murder when he said the devil mad me do it.

For all we know if there was an explosion Israel could have planted a bomb. They have been known to do that before.

Maybe they were trying to assassinate  Abdel Nasser Issa.

Now knowing what I know, that would be closer to  the truth. That would be so much easier to believe.

Assassination is one of Israels pass times. Among other things.

Newest Update:  Still nothing conclusive as of yet.

Strugar: UNIFIL, LAF inspect sites related to Teirfelsay incident

October 16, 2009

UNIFIL Director of Political and Civil Affairs Milos Strugar told the National News Agency on Friday that UNIFIL and the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) conducted an investigation in the Deir Qanoun River village, where equipment related to the Teirfelsay incident was retrieved.

He also said that the LAF assisted UNIFIL with the investigation, facilitating the latter’s access to locations relevant to the investigation.

The LAF also confiscated a truck inside a garage in the village and is currently inspecting it. They also found what is believed to be the door to the Teirfelsay storage facility.

Teirfelsay was the site of a Monday night explosion that resulted in the injury of a Hezbollah member identified as Abdel Nasser Issa.

Hezbollah says Israeli ‘rocket’ pictures were metal shutters

October 15, 2009

Hezbollah on Thursday denied Israeli pictures, which showed rockets being removed from the south Lebanon home of one of its activists, insisting the images merely portrayed metal shutters.

The Israeli army on Tuesday released film taken by a drone, saying it showed rockets being taken away from the home of Abdel Nasser Issa in Teirfelsay village after a rocket exploded in his house.

“The supposed rockets recorded by Israeli spy planes are in reality were only the metal shutters at the place where the Teirfelsay explosion occurred,” Hezbollah’s Al-Manar television station reported.

The station broadcast pictures taken in daylight, it said, showed men outside a garage putting a rolled up metal shutter into a truck, watched by a Lebanese soldier and two troops from the UN’s peacekeeping force UNIFIL.

The scene was filmed at Deir Qanun el-Nahr, a place near Teirfelsay Al-Manar said.

Israel has repeatedly accused Hezbollah of rearming, and an Israeli army spokesperson claimed on Tuesday night the group has “dozens of arms caches containing hundreds of rockets.”

The pictures from the drone “show how the rockets were transferred to a weapons store in a village four kilometres away,” an Israeli army spokesperson said.

Qassem says Israeli filming of Hezbollah ‘rockets’ is real attack on Lebanon

October 15, 2009

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said the Israeli film taken by a drone and released by the Israeli army, which said the footage showed rockets being taken away from the home of Abdel Nasser Issa in Teirfelsay village, where a rocket exploded earlier, was a “real attack on Lebanon.”

He said the Israelis themselves admitted they had sent a drone and filmed the area,  Israel’s action is a violation of Lebanese airspace and of UN Security Council Resolution 1701.

Qassem called on the foreign affairs ministry to use this film to call on the international community and punish Israel.

There are tons of reports on this story but what I see is Israel attempeting to sway public opinion against Lebanon and Iran.

They want another war,  so they can kill even more people.

They have breached many UN Resolutions,  this is just one more.

They certainly have done everything imaginable to discredit the UN Mission Report on the war in Gaza,  this is just one more way to manipulate the world.

This is yet another distraction to take the heat off their war crimes.

The propaganda machine is hard at work once again.
