The Dubai Ruler’s Media Office released these photos of 11 of 27 suspects wanted in connection with the killing of Hamas leader Mahmud al-Mabhuh in his Dubai hotel room in January.

Dubai’s Police Chief Dahi Khalfan had some fighting words for Israel on Tuesday, accusing the Israeli government of forging passports used by a hit squad of 27 suspects in the January murder of Hamas leader Mahmud al-Mabhuh, who Dubai police believe was killed by members of the Mossad.  —KA

AFP via Google News:

“I ring alarm bells. Israel is falsifying Western passports on a large scale. We discover forged passports on a daily basis,” Dahi Khalfan told AFP.

“The world must stop an operation of vast falsification of official documents (that) a formal body (Israel’s spy agency Mossad) is carrying out,” he added.

“It is shameful for the European countries that a country which claims to be a state of law is falsifying their passports,” he said.

“This is an unprecedented phenomenon for one country to forge the documents of another,” he said, describing it as something which is “usually done by criminal gangsters, not states.”

Espionage is one thing, extrajudicial assassination is another.

The U.S. is no angel in this either, I believe Cheney had his little “hit” teams.

For the last three weeks,I have followed the news from Dubai about the murder of Mahmoud Al-Mabhuh,a Hamas leader,in Al-Bustan Hotel in Dubai,United Arab Emirate. I watched the whole result of the investigation by the Dubai’s Police,on Al-Jazeera live website. The Chief of Police of Dubai,General Dahi Khalfan has done a real professional job in identifying the Israeli terrorists who had done the murder after entering Dubai by falsified British,French,German and Australian passports.

General Khalafan said in a press conference that his department has plenty of evidences,including DNA to idict several Mossad agents. The INTERPOLE now is involved to bring the Israeli Mossad terrorists to justice.

It is very interesting when General Khalfan has indicated that he is after the chief of Mossad and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Natenyahu to be brought to international justice.

This is not the first time Bebjamin Natenyahu involves in murder. In the 1990s,he ordered the murder of the Political leader of Hamas,Khalid Misha’l,who was a resident of Amman,Jordan. It was bad for Natenyahu that his Mossad terrorist agents were caught by the Jordanian Mukhabarat(Jordanian Intelligence)after they succeeded in giving a shot of chemicals to the Hamas leader who went into a coma as a result. It was the late King Hussein of Jordan,with the help of President Bill Clinton,who forced Natenyahu,the prime minister of Israel then,to bring the specific anti-coma to Jordan to revive the coma-lnflicted,Khalid Misha’al. Misha’l was revived.

King Hussein was criticized by some of his Jordanian citizens for handing back the Mossad terrorist agents,who committed the crime in Jordan,to Benjamin Natenyahu. The king had managed persauding his Jordanian critics that it was the only option available to save Khalid Misha’l's life,with the intervention of the President of the United States then,Bill Clinton.

It is ironic that Natenyahu had chosen to do his terrorist and murdering act in the 1990s,in Jordan which Israel had sined a peace treaty with just recently then.

How can anybody trust Benjamin Natenyahue is beyond my comprehension.

I wish General Dahi Khalfan,the Chief of Police of Dubai,continued successes,in his effort to bring the muderers to justic.

Of course, espionage operations have never involved falsifying another
country’s documents. Only the Israelis could be so audaciously sinister!

Israel “forge passports?” Nah, Israel would NEVER do anything as dastardly as
that. Israel might pull off a little apartheid or rain a little white phosphorus death
on Gaza or spy on America BUT, Israel would never forge a passport. Nope,
wouldn’t be prudent.
