Britain Blocks Mossad Replacement Over Passport Theft

The United Kingdom will not allow an official representative of Israel’s security services into the country, according to an Israeli report, until Israel promises, in writing, not to abuse British passports. Israel has so far refused, the report said.

The previous Mossad representative was expelled after British passports were reportedly used by Israeli agents to carry out an assassination in Dubai.

Ynet News via the Guardian:

The British condition the arrival of a new Mossad representative on an Israeli commitment, in writing, that no further use of British passports would be made by the intelligence agency in its operations.

Israel has so far abstained from signing such a document, as this may be interpreted as a confession to the use of forged British passports in the Dubai assassination.

”For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, (<- Jews) who must be silenced because they are upsetting whole families, teaching things they should not teach for the sake of sordid gain. One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” This testimony is true. For this reason reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith, not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men who turn away from the truth. To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed.” –Titus 1:10-16

Here Paul is classifying non-Jeebus Jews as rebellious, deceivers, avaricious, their beliefs as myths, and reprobates because they have denied the “truth”; and the truth to Paul is that Jeebus is dah Lawd. About the only thing Paul leaves out is that all Jews have big noses and the breed like rats. I wonder where the Catholic Church, the Nazis, and all other persecutors of the Jews from Christendom for the past 2,000 years or so get their negative impression of the Jews, who to this day still reject Christianity and its Jewish Messiah of the Christian faith?

Christianity is all about Jew on Jew hatred over religious dogma. The Europeans and all of Christendom just picked up on what they read in the N.T. And Christianity’s anti-Judaism sentiments were carried over into the other bastard offshoot of Judaism, Islam! Humans don’t need much of an excuse to hate other humans. Look at the venom you spew at me and anyone else who paints anything but a glowing picture of Israel. 

”The evangelical Christians condescend to the Jews by offering their support before they convert or kill them. And the conservative Jews condescend to Christians by accepting their support while believing that their eschatology is nonsense. This is a fine example of the political exploitation of religion.”—Leon Wieseltier, literary editor of the “New Republic”

As for all those radical websites; the most radical I visit is the left-leaning, anti-war, Truthdig, and sometimes TDB & HuffPo.

” It’s also amazing how someone who is NOT a Jew is a self-proclaimed expert on self-hating Jews.  As if he has ANY basis for anything.  His “knowledge” of early Christianity is like his “knowledge” of Jewish history—all crap he got from radical websites.  The early Christians WERE Jews, following Jewish Law, who believed the prophesied Messiah HAD come to the Jewish People, in the form of Yeshuah, aka Jesus (the Greek version of Yeshuah).”

1.

Saul of Tarsus (St. Paul) was a Jew and a Pharisee. He started out—according to the Christian N.T.—persecuting the Christians who were Jewish followers of Jeebus, and was converted on the road to Damascus.

John is called the disciple that Jeebus loved. The apostles were REAL Jews; they were citizens of the Kingdom of Judea. They weren’t citizens of a 20th century Western nation who held to Judaism, albeit Paul had obtained Roman citizenship.

Now let’s take a look at what THEY—those real Jews—had to say about their beloved Jew brethren, shall we?

Acts 10:39
“We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They (<- the Jews)also put Him (<- the Jew Jeebus)to death by hanging Him on a cross.”(<- Christ killers)

That’s Jews blaming the Jews for killing the Jewish Messiah. The disciples were ALL Jews and the Book of Acts speaks of their “acts” during the early years of the Church. Notice that there are no references to Romans.

1st Thessalonians 2:14,15
…for you also endured the same sufferings at the hands of your own countrymen, even as they did from the Jews, who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out. They are not pleasing to God, but hostile to all men,

Paul writes that Jews persecuted Gentiles as well as other Jews, accused the Jews of having killed the Jew Christ and Jewish prophets, and clearly states that Jews are not very nice people. (Sounds like he knew you personally ITW, although I don’t credit your being an obnoxious prick with being a non-Jew Jew.)

John writes in his books that Jews who do not accept Jeebus as the messiah are anti-Christs, liars, and deceivers. Is any of this beginning to sound familiar dumbass?

In the Book of the Revelation, regardless of whatever Jewish John you want to credit with having written it, he prophesizes very bad things happening to them because they are evil children of Satan and the Christ killers.

Jeebus, the Christians’ Jewish messiah, son of YHWH, and god (2nd part of the divine ménage à trois), says that the Jews are of the synagogue of Satan and that they are NOT REAL Jews. (Rev. 2:9, 3:9).

”While I applaud the UK’s refusal to allow any more Mossad agents to enter without a commitment from Israel not to violate UK sovereignty (which forging passports does), it amazes me how Nemesis and his fundamental bigotry are tolerated:”

Questioning the wisdom of the establishment of the state of Israel is not bigotry ITW. Buy a dictionary you feeble-minded twit! If the U.N. decided to give your state to the Jehovah’s Witnesses I’d be questioning the wisdom of that also.

With all sincerity I strongly advise that you seek professional mental-health care and take adult education classes to remedy your embarrassingly obvious reading comprehension deficiency. You are the epitome of dumbed-down Amurika.

”So, in addition to Israel being the “Devil” in Nemesis’s world, Palestinians are “simple-minded” too.  Just like little children, eh?  Aren’t you wondering about Nemesis yet?”


Have you a clue what type of people inhabited the land known as Palestine back in the 1940s ITW? Does that mean that they were worth any less than other human beings? Not to me. On the other hand, despite your pretentious, feigned, and melodramatic outrage, you don’t have a problem with them having had their homeland snatched right out from under them by a U.N. decree and given to what you have agreed is nothing more than a religious group with a sense of nationality. What about their religion and sense of nationality?

The rogue state of Israel has consistently proven itself to be an unfaithful ally. It has attacked an American naval vessel, killing 34 and wounding 171, while in international waters, been caught spying on our nation several times, ignores our national sovereignty, and intervenes in our internal politics through agencies like AIPAC. Now we have an incident where they have also betrayed another of their allies, Britain. With an ally like Israel a nation doesn’t need an enemy.

Anytime you think that I have said something in error all you have to do is post evidence to the contrary. But you don’t do that, instead you get your panties knotted up and begin your foul attacks upon my person. Being an Alpha male, I don’t allow your denigrations to upset me; I get a good laugh at your displays of ignorance and buffoonery. I enjoy ruffling your dainty feathers and watch you screech you pompous peacock.

”Of course, Jews are not a people, but I’ll bet he goes along with that assertion that Rupert Murdoch is a Jew, despite being a practicing Christian. (Not that I have any love for Murdoch)”


Wrong again dipshi’ite! I thought Rupert Murdoch was an America-hating Australian and have never considered his religious affiliation. I’m surprised that such men like Murdoch would even claim a religious affiliation. It would have to be Republican Jeebus Christianity.

”Israel’s greatest threat is the continuing secularization of the Western World. Even in the US Atheism is the fastest growing religious group.
Israel gets currently a lot of money and sympathy from biblical literalists who see that Israel and Jews are chosen by God and therefore have a certain license to anti social behavior, such as occupations and racially motivated war crimes.
Globalization on the other hand does not allow for this exceptionalism. A Hindu or a Buddhist has no contract with the Abrahamic religions. He cares about Israel’s claim to Palestine as much as we care about putative Hindu’s claim on Sri Lanka on account of some monkey god, Hanuman or how the Tibetans will find the 15th Dalai Lama. There is no shared experience and Israel’s demands to racial/religious superiority and exceptionalism will sound increasingly bothersome and inexcusable.
My congratulations to the Brits for standing up to this crap. Governments are increasingly realizing that they rule a multi-cultural society and that religions and their peculiarities founded in some super-natural hog wash have no place in administering a modern society.

Calling atheism, which is nothing more than disbelief in a divine, a religion is the same as calling bald a hair color.

The Jews, which are a religious group, had no legitimate claim to the land known as Palestine for the past 2,000 years. Until 1948 there had not been an Israel since about 722 BCE. Jews were citizens of the very small kingdom of Judea which because of its rebellious actions against the then ruling empire, Rome, resulted in the lost of their kingdom and dispersion of those people to other parts of the empire. Their actions are what caused the lost of their lands and autocratic theocracy.

Christianity—a bastard offshoot of Judaism—was founded upon Jew hatred of Jews. That Jew hatred of Jews—as expressed in the Christian New Testament—provided license for the 1700 years of Christian European prejudice that Jews have suffered in Europe and other parts of Christendom. Israel’s association with American evangelicalism is akin to a child playing with a tiger; it’s going to be bitten eventually.

Jews would do well to study the Book of the Revelation and see what the Jew hating Jew, known as St. John, thought of Jews that refused to accept the new cult’s messiah as their own. That mindset is part and parcel of evangelical eschatology. Either Jews had better be prepared to accept jeebus or their new found BFFs are going to lead them to the slaughter –theirs!

Adherents of the 3 monotheistic religions—all with Hebraic roots—appear determined to drag the world, kicking and screaming, into another Dark Ages of knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, ignorance.

The greatest threat to Israel is the rogue state of Israel.

I, with you, applaud the actions of the British government but what is really needed here is the cutting off of all foreign aid and diplomatic relations with the rogue state of Israel by both the U.S. and Britain, until which time they have clearly defined borders and join—in good faith—the rest of the civilized world by obeying international law.

Ah, that arrogant rogue state; I bet it seemed just a wonderful idea to dump Europe’s problem on the simple-minded and defenseless Palestinians back in the 1940s. Yep… let’s not deal with our extreme hatred and prejudice of this obnoxious bunch of religious deliri et insani or the insurmountable legal battles that we face in trying to undo the rat maze of expropriated properties now owned by others legally under a different set of rules. 

Any nation trusting the rogue state of Israel is in for a rude awakening. World opinion is shifting and soon even the horrors of WWII won’t be enough to win sympathy for them. They have played that card a little too much. Their own god YHWH repented of creating mankind because of them and said he’d rub their faces in excrement. Jews hating Jews is a many millennia long history.

The Mossad really blew it bad on that assassination, especially when you realize how many of their agents have been compromised. For them to refuse a written agreement to no longer steal the information from British passports is real CHUTZPAH (shameless audacity). The whole world believes they did it so why be coy about it. In Israel, large groups of people quickly bought the style of eyeglasses almost all the agents wore for their passport photos.

Israel will probably win, because in the West, since World War II, respectable
people have adopted a rigid social code according to which it is inherently anti-
Semitic even to talk about Israel’s political power - because that would sound as if
one were talking about the power of a certain demographic group.

In politics, even a little power goes a very long way, if everyone strenously refuses
to talk about how much power you have, or even to admit that you have any
power at all.
