Israel Did It...Maybe

 One Writer's opinion on the Dubai Termination

...but I have a considerable admiration for the Israeli way of doing things. They want something, they get it. They perceive someone as their deadly enemy, they kill them. They get hit, they hit back. They don’t waste time explaining or justifying or agonising; nor do they allow their detractors to enter their country and then afford them generous welfare payments. They just act. No messing. No scruples. Not even a shrug and a denial, just a rather magnificent refusal to debate anything.

This absolutism, based on their history, carries its own moral weight; one that is rather electrifying in a Western world grown flabby with niceties. Clearly, the Israelis could defend their policies if they wanted to, but they quite simply can’t be bothered. It’s a waste of breath. One admires them for that, too.

I’ve felt this way ever since the Entebbe raid in 1976, an occasion when the Israelis showed Hollywood a thing or two. After two Palestinians and two Germans had hijacked an aircraft on a flight that had originated in Israel, the Israeli army simply swooped in, killed the hijackers and freed all but three of the hostages. It was decisive, bloody and clever. Lieutenant-Colonel “Yoni” Netanyahu, the older brother of the present Prime Minister, Binyamin, was the only commando killed in the fighting.

They also outdid fiction after the massacre at the Munich Olympics in 1972, when they hunted down 11 Palestinians who were responsible and eliminated them wherever they were in the world. Aided by fake passports and disguises, Mossad agents employed methods including a booby-trapped telephone, a bomb planted in a bed and a raid in Beirut in which the present Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, dressed as a woman. Nobody caught it on CCTV, but on the ground that human nature can never resist this kind of stuff, Steven Spielberg made it into the Oscar-nominated 2005 movie Munich.

Maybe, as the West becomes increasingly gentle and polite, and pays those monthly direct debits to Amnesty International, we need the Israelis to remind us that the world is not made according to our template...

You'ld be suprised at how many Americans look at Iseael as something special.
...And admirable in a place where being humane is a weakness.

Would I be surprised to find out Israel killed this goon?

Of course not. It seems that they probably had the most motivation.

What is doubtful is that the evidence presented from Dubai is credible.

And Israel cannot convincingly deny the evidence without tipping their own hand in the matter, so they just have to ride out the diplomatic storm.

It's just as possible that this guy's own people might have just been finished with him, or maybe there are some internal struggles that put him on the wrong side of the matter.

So they concoct a string of evidence that in fact proves nothing, but is difficult to disprove also.

In the end, Israel's friends are still friends, and the anti-semites are still beating the air.

Really motivating stuff! You have to admire the reasoning behind this and wonder why America is not using Mossad to track down and kill Osama. Again, magnificent stuff from the Israelis, bravo to each an every one of you!

I bet Jack Bauer did it;-)

Honestly I don't care who did it. But they DID AN OUTSTANING JOB!

A terrorist would have blown up women and kids and just anyone who got in the way. That's what terrorist do.

But these guys used excellent technique to just take out the bad guy and no one else.

Well done!
