Demand for Mossad T-shirts up worldwide
Irish newspaper reports sales of garments carrying Israeli spy agency's name have risen tenfold since Hamas man's assassination in Dubai, particularly among Diaspora Jews
Israel has yet to confirm or deny its involvement in the assassination of senior Hamas figure Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, but there are those who are already taking advantage of the mysterious affair in order to make a profit.


The Irish Times reported Wednesday that the sales of Mossad-themed T-shirts have risen tenfold since the Israeli spy agency was linked to last month’s operation.


Eran Davidov, marketing manager of a top mail order company selling Israeli-made products, said his company had been overwhelmed by demand since launching a special “Show off your Mossad and Israeli pride” campaign earlier this week, directed mainly at Jewish communities in the Diaspora.


The most popular T-shirts include the writing “Don’t Mess with the Mossad” alongside a picture of a pistol. Another garment has the word Mossad with the letter “o” replaced by a circular target used on a rifle range.


According to Davidov, since the launch of the marketing campaign the company has received dozens of e-mails and blog messages expressing pride in the ability of Mossad to strike with impunity throughout the Arab world.
